Okay, this page is a mess - not just through the examples, but every single international version is mashed up with the other ones. We need to seperate it so it makes sense, and then I think the actual entries need cleaning up. Anybody willing to help with that, or at the very least do it?

- The Bad Guy Wins: Will Kirby in US Season 2, Maggie Ausburn in US Season 6, Mike "Boogie" Malin in US Season 7 (All Stars) and "Evil" Dick Donato in US Season 8, Adam Jasinski in US Season 9 (he used his prize money to start a drug ring).

If they were portrayed as the villain, or at the very least Anti-Villain, during the show's airing, then keep it there. If not, remove it.

I would suggest that the Elimination Houdini is not subjective in reference to the Australian entry: "Camilla from Season 6 in Australia- she was up for eviction ten out of thirteen possible times. She survived all of them and ended up taking second." Statistically, she was an Elimination Houdini. Is there a better trope to decscribe this phenomenon?

IMO, I think that's a really good example of what an "Elimination Houdini" really is. There's a pretty good chance they can be eliminated, yet they seem to escape it because they're up against someone the public doesn't like more or who's a bigger threat. What's subjective is that they seem to imply that the Elimination Houdini is bad at the game or has no talent.

I don't get why EH is a YMMV trope. If you're up for eviction a lot and manage to stay, that's a fact, how is it subjective?
