Advantages: good tv
Disadvantages: manipulative and cynical
So Ron is gone... The only questions is, what took him so long? It was always clear what a self-centred bully he was, which raises the question of 1) Why he wanted to go on the island in the first place, and 2) Why he was chosen to go to Taransay.
The first question might always remain a mystery, since he clearly never had any desire to live in a community, adapt, tolerate or do anything that he didn't want to do (his comment about why he wouldn't help with planting potatoes says it all - 'why bother with all that work when you can buy a bag from Sainsbury's?'). The answer to the second question may well be far more sinister. It was clear from the very beginning during the selection process that Ron was not going to be willing to put himself out in any way, or do anything which he personally didn't fancy doing. So why on earth was he chosen if not in the hope that his attitude would inject some of the much needed tension that all TV docusoaps thrive on? Wouldn't it have been boring if everyone had liked each other and got on swimmingly. Call me cynical, but I really can't see any other reason why that man was there...
