I don't get all the Candice love out there. I can see where the fact that she's been a victim of racism makes people root for her in life, but I don't see how that translates into deserving to get further in or win the game. I guess some might think that she's been unfairly sent packing in the same way Judd has (as a victim of as smear campaign around being MVP) but I don't think she can blame her fate solely on Amanda, Aaryn and GM's comments. I think she can only blame herself - she played a poor game. She was smart enough to spot MC before most and had other insights, but she didn't know how to use them, and she stuck herself to Howie rather than build relationships with others and be part of the game when she had many chances (Helen and Elissa for example). I'm not sure she even wanted to be there - she was a recruit not a fan, so might have come in thinking this was an easy summer job and her ticket to fame, and those are the last people I want to actually win this thing.
