Wtf anon. I'm pretty sure every team has a captain of some sort for Gishwhes. And I've seen a lot of teams with applications. Kaleofthelord isn't The only one. And I'm sure just like Taylor and her team the other teams that win are more happy about being able to meet their teammates than about meeting misha. I know I would be were I to win Gishwhes.
Between the general tone of the anons message and their word choice (all the ‘whoops I said it’ BS), I would bet that anon is either very young or very immature, and does not know much about GISHWHES. Even if people DO do gishwhes for the sole reason of meeting Misha, that’s no reason to judge them. Everyone does it for their own reasons.
I wonder if that anon knows that ALL the runner-ups AND the winning team HAD TEAM CAPTAINSin GISHWHES 2012. So obviously, the runner-ups AND the winning team were totally doing something wrong.
My team did GISHWHES for crazy fun. Meeting Misha was an added bonus, but my team got along so well we became a family. We’d rather meet each other rather than meet Misha by the end of the hunt. Our team captain was chosen because she was the one held the team together and be on track. It wasn’t based on authority or power, every person on the team was equal. There’s such a thing as being equal friends and a leader.
sorry for the rant
