Sarah's Monkey's official "Fly Theory" thread
What is the "fly theory"? SM claimed way back on the original ASS that the fly represented "death/disaster" and getting hit by one was significant enough to eliminate a player from contention. Mariano Man picked up on this theory last season and disproved Panurge's storyline thread by using the "fly theory" to eliminate Cochran. When Edgic had reduced the prospective winner field down to 2 players (Sophie/Coach) MM used the fly theory to correctly pick Sophie as the winner, because the fly had hit and thus eliminated Coach (as well as Ozzy, Cochran, Rick and Brandon). The fly has hit a handful of players over the years and none have ever gone on to win the game. *ONLY exception to this rule is Ethan Zohn, however, this happened on S3 and the official "fly theory" did not begin until it hit Rob Mariano on ASS. Since then, it has been used as a kiss of death and in recent seasons has been taking out victims in much larger numbers. By now the fly is a successful Survivor serial killer and we must be on the look out for new victims. S24 had its first last week - RIP Kat Edorrsen. Who's Next??
