Veronica brought entertainment,like she always does. Without her on this challenge, we wouldn't have had the fight with Tonya and there would be no Tonya fighting anyone and getting kicked out. She atleast tried to take down the main alliance towards the end, it failed but she alteast tried. So without her story lines, who knows what we would have saw instead? probably nothing better than what she gave us in this challenge. She also creates a lot of discussion on different message boards. So to say she brought NOTHING isn't exactly true..

actually, she usually doesn't fail.
Veronica will be selling some of her prizes won on The Ruins.
Katie will be too.
[QUOTE=gamer73;138878]Veronica will be selling some of her prizes won on The Ruins.[/QUOTE] I'm really starting to dislike her. She deserved that hit from Tonya.
Veronica is the sneakiest, smartest, and meanest challenger ever. I don't like her but I have to give her credit.
I think Veronica was very entertaining on the challenge. I dont think its just her, but Wes, Katie, and Tonya and Veronica really all left back to back to back to back. All the entertainment really revolved around these four (no so much Katie though). That is why i believe most think this challenge has died, its not just Veronica, but everyone worth watching has left. As for Veronica: Veronica was quiet the first two weeks, but Episode 3 she came on the scene with Evan and her not wanting to step up, week four was her v. tonya, weeks 5 and 6 basically revolved around Veronica. She may have been gone a while but she still owns these shows. For me the best moment of the season was when Veronica survived episode five, quite frankly it was EPIC. Anyone who says Veronica brought nothing to this challenge is really just a hater.
I can kind of understand why people say Veronica didn't really do anything on this challenge. She wasn't the star of the show. She didn't intend for any of the stuff that happened concerning her to happen - as in, she didn't really control anything. She didn't change the tide against EK, and she wasn't shown much except for a couple of episodes. But for me, what happened with Tonya (though a mess and sad, some of it came from a place in past challenge history, when challenges were really great, and it's interesting to see the history linked to the present) and the whole vote changing episode added a lot to the challenge. I don't think the challenge has changed drastically because she's not there, though.
I agree with RW... She didn't add a whole lot, but she definitely did add some. She changed the votes to go her way, she got in a fight with tonya (which brought back a time when the challenges meant something) and she's easy on the eyes :)
One of my favorite moments this season is when Veronica was talking to Evan and looked down and said "Hey Susie" in her ***** voice!

Besides get really lucky?
Pretty much. It felt like people more or less just had pity for her and threw her a bone so that they could see her agianst Kelly Ann in the near future.

Regardless of their reasons, she wasn't there much longer anyway.
On BOTSexs1, Emily really campaigned to get Veronica out once she got in the inner circle. If you watch the announcement that Veronica was going home, it was so out of left field for everyone, even the guys were amazed. All because Emily did not like the fact that Veronica had slept with James before her. They were always close in the rankings but the moment Emily got the chance, she dropped the hammer. I remember that I did not particularly like Veronica but lost loads of respect for Emily on that move.
Veronica is a legend on these challenges. If there was a hall of fame she would be in it.I Felt she was her best on Battle of the Sexes 1, The Gauntlet,Challenge 2000, and The Inferno. Decent on Battle o the Seasons,Battle of the Sexes 2, The Inferno 2 and The Ruins. I think she does her best when she is not aroind people she's really comfortable with or people who are her close friends case in point the Inferno in which I thought she did her best in her whole Challenge experience, Rachel or Tina werent there or Yes.
Veronica is someone you love to hate on these challenges.
Veronica is someone who picks fights easily with Tonya,Katie,Emily,Amaya,Ayanna and plenty of more people.

The strange thing is, on the Ruins, she seemed to genuinely want to help Tonya. Of course, Tonya still flipped out for all of her past meanness, but still-she (V) seemed like she really changed.
I think Veronica has changed but some people cant let things go. Tonya couldnt let go of Veronica,Tina and Rachel bullying her. What gets me is why didn't she hate Rachel and Tina like the way she did with Veronica. Katie for example had a conflict on The Gauntlet with V and on The Inferno had a fall out, there friends now. Also she keeps her friends and keeps her word. Her friends were and are people like Coral,Rachel,Shane,Tina,Kelly Anne,Darrell,Katie,Syrus,Yes and many more. I remember on my favorite challenge The Inferno how Veronica bascially saved Coral from going into the Inferno over Mallory. She referred back to when Coral lost for her team on The Gauntlet. Though it may have sounded harsh, she didnt want Coral to be picked over Mallory because she was friends with her.
tonya always seemed to block out tina, rachel, and even robin. NEVER did she confront them, never did she really try to fight with them, it was always veronica. she even said one time, im going to hit this thing (or something like that) like its veronica. why did she single her out? and why did she not get crazy with rachel on the island like she did with veronica on the ruins? i honestly think tonya had a jealousy problem with veronica. for veronica to basically be a "motherly" figure to her on the last challenge and for tonya to still attack her is just plain crazy. i think maybe veronica got tired of taking care of her and got tired of tonya being drunk every single night and just was fed up and spoke her mind. plus, it was clear tonya was looking for a fight.
People always said Veronica was the ring leader. People listened to Veronica. They respected her. Tonya blocked out Rachel and Tina because she knew Veronica was the ringleader. I don't think Rachel or Tina would have picked on Tonya if Veronica didn't start it. I happen to like Veronica, but I guessing that is Tonya's perspective.
Veronica was the one who people would look upon too and would answer too. On her first challenges( Challenge 2000.Battle of the Seasons and Battle of the Sexes) she didnt have the kind of power she had on later challenges. Emily was in control and kinda starting on The Gauntlet she had more of a power ranking her hay day came on The Inferno- The Inferno 2, even on Battle of the Sexes 2 people were intimidated by her. In both Infernos she manage to get people to vote someone in an Inferno Example Katie. Since Veronica has been gone she's not used to how the game works and she dosent have her allies Coral,Rachel and Tina there to back her up.
What goes around comes around! Coral has always been a bully or at least had a bully personality on tv, and on her last challenge she was seen hurt because of lack of friends, she realized her strength to manipulate the game or people was no longer there. Veronica, she's always been a bully, at every challenge she has aligned with a ring leader or made herself the ring leader.. she never wants to come across as the underdog, and on her last challenge she wasn't a main player. Veronica has hurt a lot of people.. Ayanna during her season she not only plagiarized her paper but also lied about it, she also stole Pua's shirt.. On other seasons she's made fun of or joined a group of bullies to hurt Julie, Katie, and Tonya.. Sure maybe Katie got over it , she's a party go lucky girl, good for her, Julie I'm sure has moved on, got married and forgot this bs , good for her! Now Tonya, we all know she has issues, and I think agree with Evan and Johnny, these shows are like her family, she's a train wreck, and train wrecks aren't easy to fix.. Veronica is a rational grown woman, Tonya isn't.. If Veronica really wanted to show prof of growth she could have been nice to her as Rachel was to her during the Island.... Anyway, just my thoughts on this subject!
Veronica didn't even start bullying Tonya though. It was Tina who started the whole thing. Tina's been a bully to Tonya and started it back on Battle Of The Sexes 2 over Tina using the phone too much and it was Tina who was the first of the Mean Girls to call Tonya out and bully her. Veronica didn't start the bullying.
But Veronica jumped in, joined in, and apparently said more hurtful things.
Ya because Tonya made herself have those hateful things said to her. She's the one thatwas ******* herself in the room while Rachel, Tina and Veronica were in the room on the Inferno 2. And Tonya was the one putting rocks in her mouth in that melt the ice challenge on Battle Of The Sexes 2. And then to top it off she tried climbing something on the ship on The Ruins and then said, I'm not gonna drink anymore, but yet she ended up getting plastered and acted like a crazy psycho. So Tonya made herself the outcast. I've always supported Team Veronica and I still do to this day. I love u V
