The Gary Lineker Award for Sportsmanship:
Sinead Foley, for taking her betrayal and subsequent death extraordinarily well.

The Lemming Award for the First to Die:

Sinead Foley, for hiding a Hyperfire under her coat for an hour of battle without anyone figuring out exactly what it was.

The Tombstone Award for Psychopathy:
Alex Allen, for nine kills, including all three of her duel opponents.
The Three Hours Early Award for Paranoia:
