The short kid with the tacky necklace and weird hair seemed an easy target: small, weak-looking, and too polite for his own good. His fellow competitors ought to've eaten him alive. Instead, they were voted off, while he stayed. And stayed.
Immunity challenges? He won them. Puzzles? He aced them. He shot up a foot -- and gained the confidence of a king -- before every game. Cheating? Ask those who tried it, once they wake from their comas. Or regain their sight -- or their souls.
In the end, Yugi won. His friends weren't surprised.
They'd always known he was a survivor.
