The Russell Hantz Memorial Troll of the Week award (the "Trolly"): ?
Honorable mention: ?

trollyEveryone loves that one player who mugs for the cameras, confidently assures the audience of their brilliance (despite evidence to the contrary), and generally treats winning strategic gameplay as if it were a secret stash of toilet paper.


Everyone, that is, except us. We prefer to whine about it.


The Purple Kelly Memorial Invisibility Cloakee Unmasked! award ("ICU!"): ?
Honorable mention: ?

icuThe equal and opposite reaction to the Troll in recent seasons is the necessary editing of less-colorful contestants out of the season entirely, in order to give that one person-who-couldn't-possibly-be-acting more screentime for their droll, entirely unrehearsed confessionals.


Those people who get edited out? We'll try to remember who they are here.


The Colby Donaldson Memorial Challenge Beast award (The "Beasty"): ?
Honorable mention: ?

beastyHere there be people whose only game is winning challenges, until they don't.


They're gone shortly after that.


The CIrie Fields Memorial Smiling Backstabber award ("Slitty"): ?
Honorable mention: ?

slittyAnd finally, the only award that is actually positive, except in seasons where the strategy maven reaches the final two/three and receives zero jury votes.


Which is a lot of them, sadly.
