Tumblr User Shares Brilliant Theory For Why Violet Should've Won Wonka's Chocolate Factory

Until now, our favorite hot button theory about Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory has been that Grandpa Joe is the true villain of the film and the Roald Dahl book it's based on. This Tumblr thread from user evayna changes all of that. In the film, the impoverished Charlie ends up winning the f*cked up competition, thus inheriting Wonka's fortune and position as the world's most deranged and masochistic candy maker. Evayna believes that this honor should have been bestowed to the gum-chewing Violet Beauregarde, and she's got some solid evidence to back this theory up. We're 100% sold.

    Text - Have I watched the movie in the last decade or more? No. Do I have iron clad evidence to support my argument? Yes. 1. She's the most knowledgeable about candy. She's committed to it, and knows her stuff. When Wonka holds up a little yellow piece across the room, she recognizes it im- mediately. She was able to switch to candy bars for the sake of the contest, so we know she has personal discipline and is goal ori- ented. Also, two major projects play directly into her strong suits: the 3-

    Text - from him. (Veruca's dad is also a business man, and in a compatible market (nuts), but it's made very clear that Veruca has no respect or knowledge of business practices hard work.) 3. She's the most sympathetic to the Oompa Loompas. She critiques Veruca when Veruca demands to buy one. More importantly, Wonka has been testing the 3-course-meal gum that 'always goes wrong' on Oompa Loompas while he presumably just watches. Violet is ready to put herself on the front line, instead of treati

    Text - already did that to win the goldern ticket. And yeah, she is defensive about the perceived impoliteness of her hobby (like when her mother tries to shame her about her habit during a televised interview) but the obsession with candy and neglect of social norms is EXACTLY what Wonka is all about. This is on brand. 5. Her misstep in the factory is reasonable. Wonka shows everyone a candy he's very proud of. Violet is like "oh sick, that's gum, my special interest." Wonka is then pulls a "WR

    Text - powerful for safe consumption, oh and also I just saw what happened to Violet so I ac- tually KNOW what this stuff can be capable of" Also, Violet is not selfish about her expe- rience, she tells everyone what she's tasting and feeling, and everyone is eager to hear it. Taking a personal risk to share knowledge with everyone. Violet is Prometheus: fact Augustus contaminates the chocolate river. Charlie sneaks around and contami- nates the vent walls. Veruca destroys and disrupts the works
