Rupert & Laura: Grizzly Eyes
Catch that whiff of patchouli in the air? It must mean that the tie-dyed hirsute fellow and his wife are up next. Meet Rupert and his wife, Laura. Grizzly (Rupert) is one of those players that you either love or hate. In the beginning, I loved him. By the end of Heroes v. Villains I wanted to strangle him with his tank top. He went from jovial and good-natured to entitled and bossy. In an effort to achieve tribal harmony, he'd demand team building exercises and empowerment conferences. Ain't nobody got time for that!
Let's see what incarnation of Grizzly we'll get this time. Please to enjoy:
I am conflicted. I want to roll my eyes and shake my head like a dissatisfied curmudgeon, but I find myself drawn to Grizzly's crazy wide eyes. They are terrifying and intriguing all at the same time. On the one hand, I think the childlike platitudes are an act, but, on the other hand, I can envision motivational quips scrawled in crayon on the walls of his house. What a conundrum indeed! And, you know what? Kudos to them for getting in shape. Perhaps along with his new physique, we'll get a new Grizzly game philosophy - one not rooted in togetherness. Only time will tell.
So, what do you think about Grizzly and Laura? Will Grizzly be kinder and gentler or will he pull his Tony Robbins act again? Comment it out bitches and have a great day!
