Francesca Hogi
Stimpy's Take:
I’m torn.

There’s a part of me that wants to like her, lest I be considered a racist, because lately the black (or African-American if you want me to be politically correct) women they’ve cast recently I’ve taken an intense dislike to.

In fairness to me, the two that come to mind are last season’s She of Epic Bitch Proportions™ (I’d have hated her no matter what her race was), and Crystal from Gabon (and, it turns out she was also a roid-head).

But right outta the gate with Francesca, I gotta say, that anyone who lists ‘watching movies’ as a hobby doesn’t impress.

Toss in a pet peeve of ‘delusional people’ as a pet peeve, and all I gotta say is: ever look at thine own ass?

Okay putting that aside, Francesca is driven. She’s here for the money and not the experience, and that’s always a plus.

Does she have the chops to pull it off?

I’d say no.

Whenever someone describes themselves as ‘determined, stubborn and opinionated’ I don’t see ‘Survivor winner’ screaming me in the face.

Granted, Sandra probably described herself like that, and she won twice, so what the hell do I know?

I don’t mind that she likens herself to both Cirie and Boston Rob, because they were both pretty adept at how they played the game.

However, neither of them won.

But Francesca also does become number two on the list with something of a healthy dislike for Russell the Dick™.

Again, that’s something in her favor.

Dunno if it’ll help in the long run.

For what it’s worth, I don’t think I’ll hate her right outta the gate (like I had it pegged with last season’s preview with She of Epic Bitch Proportions™), but I dunno if she’s got the chops - even though she seems driven - to even make the merge.

Unless she’s part of a majority alliance and gets further into the game, I don’t foresee things going well for Francesca.

She may prove me wrong, and I won’t have any problem admitting it if she does.
