I know that this has been done to death on blogs and profiles, but I guess it's a rite of passage at this point for this wiki. But I thought I'd do something different for this countdown. This time, I'm going to include Chris, Chef, Blaineley, and even Mr. Coconut. Also, I'm not going to rank someone low on the list just because they "didn't get enough screentime". Any character can be interesting and there's a lot to learn about them if they get them proper sreentime. And I will not let the decisions to have their screentimes cut ruin an otherwise good character. Will you see some "under-developed" chracters lower on the list? Sure, but I take into consideration both what the writers do with them and how I personally view them. So without further a do, I give to you my forty-one character ratings. 

Oh, by the way, if you want to be surprised, then scroll down through this filler I created and hide the content bar. I will be doing this for all the rankings.

39- Chris McLean

Oh, Chris...where did you go wrong? Was it when you got into this business? When you snuck into a movie theater playing Transformers when you were seven? Ah, who really gives a crap! 

It's this guy that makes you question whether this show is actually or not; the guy you want your head on a platter when he kills your teenage daughter in a Michael Bay production. The writers have gone way too far with making sure he's guy you should hate. I will admit he was alright in Island- a host who acted like a regular reality show host, while picking up some tactics to spice things up.

And I think it's here that I should address my opinion on Action. I can understand the hate this show gets, but I think there's also plenty of redeeming factors. And even with it's baffling issues with Character Derailment, numerous exchanges of the Idiot Ball, and at times weak comedy, I don't think any of them are as bad as what the future seasons would bring.

Why do I bring up Action? Because I think that's the only season that portrays Chris as a human being. In "Master of Disasters", he gets worried over the fact that the contestants might die. And I actually liked him in that moment and I hoped that from there he would learn his lesson for the future. Maybe hold back a bit but still try to find interesting ways to make the show fun to watch.

But nope! That's where he starts to get worse. He starts in World Tour by constantly making up rules just to make sure that Heather and Alejandro are in the final two together. And you thought it was all just a coincidence? You know, with him saving screen-hogs with fake eliminations while leaving people like Cody and Noah to die in a ditch.

Then it got worse in Revenge when he came up with the Hurl of Shame which makes absolutely sense when you think about it. Whereas the first three seasons made some sense with the method of eliminations, this is just used to add awesomeness in the show's universe and sleazy, mean-spirited humor to us. The challenges getting more violent and him poking more and more holes in our willing suspension of disbelief and in our ability to treat this show with sincerity.

And don't even get me started on All-Stars! You can read that in my review.

So on the whole, this guy is just Michael Bay and NOT Jeff Probst.

38- Scott

If I were, like, the King of Language or something, and if I could determine what any word or phrase meant, the first thing I would do is go to every dictionary and reference guide and change the definition of "idiot plot" to Scott. Where at least Heather had just a little more strategy, this sack of ginger is more stupid than he looks. If anyone had just a little bit of common sense, then this guy would've been sent packing, but yet the writers insist that- like always- a story without conflict sure ain't a good one. It doesn't seem to matter what they or anyone else does, so long as they look bad and they survive until the very end.

This happens to apply to almost every "villain" this show has ever had, but Scott seems to have relied on the most luck that he didn't deserve. His strategy- if you can even call it that- is very similar to the booby traps in Home Alone 3; pushing luck way too far and the chance of failure is just to great to, well, fail. But, the writers declared him a villain and proceeded to give him special treatment.

He made it very obvious from the start that he was desperate to find the hidden immunity idol which should've made one question whether this guy could be trusted. When you think about it, w

hy would this guy go to great lengths just to get one? Does he really distrust his teammates to th

e point where he needs to find a stupid idol? It gets to the point where he makes fakes. AND HE EVEN SAYS IT DURING AN ELIMINATION IN FRONT OF EVERYONE! How can nobody take a hint?!

In addition, Mike didn't have to listen to Scott when he blackmailed him. Zoey would've been better off knowing that he has a mental health issue instead of pretending to switch personalities just so he can pull all sorts of crap off! And don't even get me started on his run-ins with Dawn and B!

All-Stars was a little better for him because he didn't d that. But his problem was that he was there. Until the final three.

37- Mike and Zoey

That's right, I'm counting Mike and Zoey as one person. A lot of people place Katie and Sadie as back-to-back ratings even though they're the same thing, but I'll get to them later.

Similar to the BFFFLs, these love-birds are like two arms on the same person (pardon me for my bad analogy, but at least it's more original than stiched at the hip).

Any way, Zoey is nothing without Mike. Hence why the three episodes that she doesn't have him completely suck becuase I guess she kind of lost it. And the reason she turned into Commando was becuase the medalion Mike gave her broke after a cliff fall. (What was that medallion made of, anyway?)

And Mike is just there to teach kids that some people are special and can be more than one person. And that person can do wacky stuff with it! And that one of them can be evil! And that it can be fixed by pressing a reset button! You know, for kids?

And, that's really about it for either of them. Two whole seasons summed up in what I just said.

36- Katie and Sadie

Like Mike and Zoey, there isn't a whole lot I can say about these two. They do the exact same thing all the time, Sadie never manages to thrive on her own (despite lasting four whole episodes independent), and they practically leave no impact on the story whatsoever. Despite this, the writers realized this and got rid of them as soon as possible, unlike Mike and Zoey.

35- Cameron

One word- No! Two: annoying. and. cliched. Well, I guess that makes it three words, but if you're going to let the message of this blog fly over your head because of this little inconsistency, then don't spam the comments. Vent it out on your parents, or your annoying brother, or the people at school-

Listen, I can rest assure you that the original twenty-two had at least two characters that overlapped. How on earth are Cody and Harold different? Heck, even Noah shares some brains with them. But I'll deal with them later. 

So now we have a third (fourth) copy with this loser. The only difference between him and the others is that he's a "bubble boy".

When I first heard that, I believed that the bubble was a metaphor- you know, like how other people describe one as- and he's someone who never left the house. But no, we later find out that it's an actual bubble that he lives in. Why would his mother go to such a degree if he doesn't have any health issues? 

But it clearly shows that this is his first time interacting with real people because he acts so annoying throughout the whole thing. He's just a parasite that won't go away.

He never deserved to be in the finale to Revenge. He did nothing. Now I know that a lot of finalists did nothing as well, but Cameron deserves special mention because he not only manages to be carried the whole time, but he also says and does some of the most cringe-inducing things I've ever seen on this show.

34- Eva

Now I know what you're thinking. I'm going to flame this character for being way too mean all the time. Not exactly. Nor am I going to say that she would've been higher on the list if she have had more screen-time. But no.

The truth is that I am indifferent about this character. I don't like her but I don't hate her. Sure her anger bursts can make her less sympathetic, but it does produce some comedy.

Overall, I don't think more screen-time would have done her any good. I think that she has changed in later appearances and that's all I need to see of her.

33- Sam

Similar to Cameron, this is yet another clone of the geek stereotype, but instead comes in the form of a shut-in (or gamer, whatever you like to call it). And given how many geeks we already have on the show, this character is pointless and I would dare to even say redundant. 

I mean sure, he gets to hook up with Dakota and everything, but that was only because of their mutual obsession with electronics. You could have just had an electronic addict who didn't spend all their time with it. He could've been a balanced character who mixed geekiness with social skills. Or better yet, they could've save another first generation geek for this one just so that it doesn't seem so tired.

And in All Stars, he was just a tool by the writers to enrage us even more than we could fathom. They knew he wasn't as popular as other second-gen characters like Dawn and Brick, so they added him just to keep them out.

Overall, the only thing I kind of like about this character is that he looks and sounds Seth Rogen, but even with that, he's just a tired and boring character.

32- Izzy

Okay folks, get the hate mail ready. No, I'm serious, get your fingers on the keyboard or your envelope or your message in a bottle, I don't like Izzy. No, I'm not going to say that she's worse than the other people below her, but I placed her here for several reasons.

One, her nicknames in Action. This really annoyed me as much as it did for the other campers. I know that it would be in character for her, but still, I rolled my eyes every time she deliberately refused to respond to her actual name. I was actually kind of glad when it went away after that season.

Two, the part in World Tour where she became smart. Now I'm not annoyed by the fact that she's smart, but the mental block made no sense. I actually thought that part of her stereotype "the insane one" is being smart enough to potentially take over the world. The mental block really made no sense and cheapened the experience for me. In fact, you would think that the military would have taken her a long time ago and therefore a character like her wouldn't have belong on a show like this. So that really bugged me that she was really just nuts almost the whole time instead of having some benefit (like being really smart).

You can call me unfair for making these statements, but I stated in my preamble that I wouldn't let screentime ruin a character. I never said anything about what the writers actually did within episodes. And I personally think that they really had a good character go over their heads on this one.

31- Owen

Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Although I will give the man credit for making hilarious innuendos in Island, this character did virtually nothing aside from literally eating the show's runtime. I think he was the only winner of this show who was carried all the way through. It didn't get any better in the following two seasons.

He is yet another sign that shows that the universe picks favorites. It is very obvious that the writers love him and want to exploit him until he was nothing left. It would take a long time, however, as 296 pounds is a lot. (insert flame for poor attempt at a fat joke). 

In fact, this guy is now a criminal for being an accomplice in mass murder, and yet the writers continue to shine him in a good light.

But the reason why he isn't any lower on this list is because he was really funny in Island and did bring some good comedy to the table.

30- LeShawna

Similar to Eva, I have no idea what to think of this character. To be honest, I'm not even sure what the writers were thinking when they made this character. This ghetto girl really seemed out of place on a show for kids/teens and the only "funny" phrases you could in this place is "you crazy, girl" and "what you say". But even with that, there was only so much they could do with this character. 

But at the same time she's not terrible, she does have redeeming factors (such as a sense of family). Also, she can be funny to watch at times. Overall, though, I'm not changed by this character and I don't think she really added anything to the show in general. This seemed like a far-reaching stereotype for the first generation.

29- Dakota

Yeah I know, I'm a cold heartless jerk for hating this girl that clearly isn't nothing like Heather or Courtney, but that's not why she's down here. She's also not down here because she became a Dakotazoid. 

To tell you the truth, this character just isn't interesting. I mean yeah she hooks up with Sam over electronics (I will admit, I haven't seen a relationship start with such a connection), but Sam isn't great and the buildup seemed all but forced. I practically forgot that they even had something until the premeire of All Stars, and even then, it was just a little moment.

I didn't really care for her until she became a Dakotazoid, but if you have to jump the shark to such a degree just to make me care about a character that "CLEARLY" isn't an illicit love child of Heather and Courtney, then the writers have really failed their jobs when it comes to storytelling. 

So yeah; forgettable and tired. Listen, I hope the writers come to their senses and turn you back into a human, but that won't make me like you.
