    Potential to Develop

    August 23, 2014 by Ttowen

    Okay, so I have been reading a lot of comments, both on and off site, that have dealt with whether or not certain characters have any development potential. I have seen excuses from writers that speak of the same topic; attempting to reason their overuse and abuse of "The Big Four: Duncan, Gwen, Courtney, and Heather" by saying that other characters: Noah, Staci, Zeke, B, Dawn, Trent, Tyler, Eva, Katie, Sadie, and other contestants have no possible storyline or potential to develop. This is a blog to call them out on that horrifically lazy excuse; they are writers, it is their job to come up with story. My reasoning is as follows:

    Honestly I never really saw Zeke as being sexist. TBH I always figured it to be the opposite.

    I'm a little sick of the 13 episode seasons. I know that a lot of people are going to say how I am "wrong" and 13 episodes is better than 24, but please do listen to my entire post before reading. No flaming please.

    IMO, two of the best seasons have been longer (TDI and TDWT) I absolutely love TDI for the story, characters, etc. TDWT to me was what TDA should have been: A way to develop the minor contestants from Season 1, while still continuing the relationships of the main characters. I love the amount of development Cody recieved, as well as the screen time for Noah and Tyler. My only wish is that Zeke had been given some actual development as opposed to being tur…
