One player you will never see on Survivor again is three time veteran and two time finalist Amanda Kimmel. Kimmel, who just recently competed on the Heroes VS Villains edition where she got voted out for the first time, said in a recent interview that she will never go on Survivor again. In Amanda's view, "The game has changed and I dont like the diction its going. The new era of play that Russell Hantz has brought to Survivor has ruined it for me. I dont want any part of it." Amanda did go on to say that she loved her Survivor experience and will treasure the memories she has from it.
Analysis: Amanda Kimmel is certainly not a player that anyone is going to miss in my opinion. Although she was a good enough player to make it to two final Tribal Councils, Amanda was more of a coatail rider in her China and Micronesia seasons. She never made that one big move to make the game her own and this was proven in Heroes VS Villains when she gave the idol clue back to Danielle after she briefly impressed me by stealing it from her. All in all she was nice to look at but not a memorable player.
