Happy Top 5 Tuesday everyone! This week, I went with a bit of a weird topic that might not be for everyone. I tried to pick a show that’s been in many countries and has been on for quite a while…… and this show has been on for a long time!! I have to admit that I haven’t watched this show in a while, but I found that they all kind of played out in the same way. Sometimes theres skill involved, sometimes it works with alliances, sometimes it’s winning challenges, and sometimes it’s just plain luck. But I always wondered what would happen if book characters were put on this show…… because clearly I don’t sleep at night and this is the random crap I think of while I should be sleeping! LOL! Here are the 5 characters that I think would win the show Survivor:
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming topics in April – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
HANNA DONNELLY – She would be the girl that everyone underestimates. The pretty face with a shallow heart. They would keep her around because she’s not that much of a threat and could be a useful alliance. That is until it’s time to really compete and she kicks all their asses! By the time they realized that she’s more of a threat than they first thought, it’s too late and she’s won all the immunity challenges!
MIA CORVERE – If you’ve read Nevernight, then you pretty much know why she would win! She seems to have luck on her side when it comes to escaping. And she’s downright terrifying! But she’s also trained to be invisible. Trained to blend in with her surroundings. Much like Hanna, she can make herself seem harmless until absolutely necessary!
FARM BOY/WESLEY/THE DREAD PIRATE ROBERTS – Sorry if this is a spoiler, but at the same time, not sorry! LOL! If you haven’t seen/read this yet – DO IT NOW!! But as you know, the man was called by three names throughout the movie. Anyone who can bend themselves so well to be a totally separate person with a totally different personality…. he can make himself be whoever he wants to others! He’s a sweet talker when he wants to be; all soft and gentle. Then the next minute he’s a smart mouthed man with a sword. Not to mention he was killed and came back to life! Anyone that can go through what he did and still live to love another day, is worthy of the survivor title!
INEJ GHAFA – With a topic like this, you HAD to know that a character from Six of Crows was going to make the list! I think that her generally quiet nature would keep her under the radar. She knows how to watch and listen. She finds a way to get everyone’s little secrets, and I have a feeling that a little game of Survivor would be no different. I imagine her being able to take all that knowledge and blackmail half of the other contestants. I don’t think she would do half bad at the challenges either!
For my 5th and final choice, I decided to switch things up and say who I think would be the FIRST person voted off the island in the “book character game of Survivor”….. and that person is……
HERMIONE GRANGER – OK Hear me out! I have a feeling that her smarts would quickly get her into trouble. She knows everything! She really does! She would be a very handy person to have around if you were actually stranded because she would know how to build a shelter, what to eat, and so on. But she comes off like a know it all and that’s what I think wouldn’t be tolerated for long. Even in the books she wasn’t well liked right off the bat. It took a while for the other kids to realize that she’s an amazing person. But in the game of survivor, I don’t think they would keep her around long enough to find out!

So those are the top 5 (or should I say 4?) characters I think would win survivor. They all seem to have the same traits – being able to change themselves to fit the people and situations around them, strong (mentally and physically), and being the type of person who sits under the radar long enough to sneak up and stab you in the back. These are my types of people! LOL! Who do you think would win the show?
Until next time, happy reading!
