JESSICA "Sugar" KIPER
Hometown: Baton Rouge, La.
Current Residence: Los Angeles, Calif.
Previous Finishes: Gabon, 2nd Runner-Up
Our Take: We were never sure for a second if Sugar was coasting and getting lucky in Gabon, or she was playing some sort of brilliant stealth game. It certainly wasn't "heroic." It also wasn't "villainous." It was just a strategy that allowed her to go far further than anybody would have previously guessed. If there's going to be a Parvati-style player who gets completely underestimated and then is suddenly still around at the Top Five, Sugar may be a good candidate. Or else she may just turn out to be an airhead.
