 the show stands on its own even though it's a legacy production. noelle didn't
 want to be held back by fear of changing too much. she was prepared for
 negative backlash, but hopes that if legacy fans give the new show a try, they'll
 recognize the core spirit of the show

Also, two major projects play directly into her strong suits: the 3-course- meal gum that Wonka failed to make safe (gum) and the neverending gobstopper (longevity) 2. She's the most fit to run a business. Violet is competitive, determined, hard working, and willing to take risks. Her father is a small town car salesman and politician, so she could easily pick up knowledge and support 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 or hard work.) 3.

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 treating the Oompa Loompas as disposable, and would therefore be a better boss. 4. Her personality flaw' is the most fitting for the company. In the moralizing Oompa Loompa song, they just say gum is pretty cool, but it's not socially acceptable to chew it all day. The thing is, we already know that she can stop if she wants, because she already did that to win the golden ticket.

Candy, Charlie, and Dad: karik
 evayna
 Violet Beauregarde
 should've won Wonka's
 chocolate factory
 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 immediately. She was
 able to switch to candy bars for the sake of the
 contest, so we know she has personal discipline
 and is goal oriented. Also, two major projects
 play directly into her strong suits: the 3-course-
 meal gum that Wonka failed to make safe (gum)
 and the neverending gobstopper (longevity)
 2. She's the most fit to run a business. Violet
 is competitive, determined, hard working, and
 willing to take risks. Her father is a small town
 car salesman and politician, so she could easily
 pick up knowledge and support 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 or hard work.)
 3. Shes 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 treating
 the Oompa Loompas as disposable, and would
 therefore be a better boss.
 4. Her personality flaw' is the most fitting for
 the company. In the moralizing Oompa Loompa
 song, they just say gum is pretty cool, but it's
 not socially acceptable to chew it all day. The
 thing is, we already know that she can stop if
 she wants, because she already did that to win
 the golden 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 "WRONG! It's
 amazing guml So in the very moments before
 she takes the gum Wonka has mislead her just
 to belittle her. So when he's like I wouldn't do
 that" why should she give a shit what he has to
 say? She's not like Charlie over here who's al
 Sure Gramps, let's stay behind while the tour
 leaves and secretly drink this thing that has been
 explicitly stated to fill you with gas and is too
 powerful for safe consumption, oh and also I
 just saw what happened to Violet so I actually
 KNOW what this stuff can be capable of" Also,
 Violet is not selfish about her experience, 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.
 So Augustus contaminates the chocolate
 river. Charlie sneaks around and contaminates
 the vent walls. Veruca destroys and disrupts
 the workspace. Mike knows exactly what will
