I think its funny how many people are digging up the clip from BOTS2  saying "this is the real ayanna" where she was failed as a team leader and they lost, which led to her iconic elimination speech. Huh? All of this is real Ayanna. Like Oldschooler said-She is multifaceted, which seems too complex for some people to understand. You can enjoy watching someone on TV without agreeing with their every decision. do I think she was unnecessarily rough on Sophia? In my opinion, yes. But none of this was surprising to me. I'm just taking it for what it is-good television.

She is highly competitive, she is emotional, she is compassionate, she is kind, she is funny, and a bit dramatic. She is everything a reality tv contestant should be. We are blessed by her presence!

"I honor people's unique ways of being annoying." LMAO.

I think she said being and knowing lol but that sounds funnier.

Ayanna 'explains' her side on the Mike Lewis podcast. Her explanation starts around the 14:30 mark and she was still going at the 20:00 mark. Ayanna loves talking in circles and she was vague in some spots, stating she couldn't say too much because she signed a contract. I understand her perspective, but still don't think she's considering the other side. Like Jonna said in the episode, Ayanna and Sophia are just different people and IMO, their personalities don't mesh well anymore.

I understand that Ayanna and Sophia have two different personalities. As much as it upsets me to see them no longer on good terms, I wish them both the utmost luck in the future endeavors and appreciate both of them.

I can't wait to see what else Ayanna does this season.

She refuses to even say your faves name.

Whew Mr Lewis has more patience than me.

She said Jonna's name but not Sophia so I guess her and J don't have real beef! I noticed they don't follow each other and Jonna tends to follow every cast member she interacts with. She tends to gets along with everyone. Maybe they just never spoke

I love Ayanna for being tv gold but she is exhausting outside of an edited show.  I just know her kids are sitting like this whenever they're in trouble

LMAO Ayanna's a queen. I want more of her

Katie & Casey spilled in their confessionals about her attitude last episode... even tho it's good TV

i love ayanna lol. i can see she can't be everyone's cup of tea but she legit might be one of the most unique cast members we've had in a while

I like her as a TV character

Am I the only one that doesn't think Ayanna really considered Sophia a friend?   Or at least not to the level that Sophia did...

Was there even a clip of Ayanna talking about Sophia like they were friends?

Ayanna is good for the show but I agree that she needs her life to be edited lol.  She rambles with the best of them

Ayana played the game right.  Emotional Sophia is not cut out for this game

I'm going to make a case for Ayanna because I think people are more reacting to the harsh way she delivered her "gift" than anything because she was ice cold about it. lol.

I'm looking at it from a game perspective. Somebody had to go in her place. Ayanna in her confessional gave two reasons and I think they had validity. Sophia was already mad at her. And Sophia even says in the EW interview that the braid fight wasn't the first one they got into, so that is to Ayanna's point about the inconsistency. The people bashing Ayanna should consider that maybe she didn't trust Sophia. Maybe she could get emotional again and hold it against her in a vote.

She's good tv. How cold she was towards Sophia had me kind of shook lol

No I agree. It seemed like they haven't spoken to each other since Sexes 2. Like just because they were cool 17 years ago doesn't mean they are automatically friends.

I mean the fact that she took the power and nobody on the green team objected was such a boss move. Like they could have said no we aren't doing that and just voted but instead just stood there and let it happen. Lol

I agree. Having someone in the game that could make your game harder isn't good strategy, so overall it's not a terrible move. I do think her execution of it itself might make her game more difficult in the political game though, but she expressed that she came in very naïve about the political/social side (and still shows moments of naïveté (lol) in the podcasts). 

i might actually finally watch semester at sea just cuz of ayanna lol (but also it looks like the other cast members are good in that season)
