Tumblr User Lays Out Very Compelling Argument For Why Violet Should've Won Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

Paramount Pictures

Theorizing and analyzing popular culture is the second most important reason for the internet to exist.

And that analysis covers a very broad range of subjects.


Like who should have won at the end of the 1971 film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The movie is based on Roald Dahl's 1964 book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Tumblr user Evayna lays out her reasonings why Violet Beauregarde, not Charlie, should have won Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

Evayna starts by acknowledging she hasn't seen the movie in a while, but is willing to back up her claim.

Out of all the children, Violet is the most competitive and knowledgeable about candy.

Is that not what is made by Willy Wonka?

That competitive nature combined with her father's business acumen means Violet is the most likely to run the business successfully.

Who wants all those Oompa Loompa's to lose their jobs?

She portrays a degree of sympathy for the Oompa Loompas.

Workers' rights?

She is obsessed with candy.

Passion for the job?

The reason she is eliminated is an understandable mistake.

Although the case could be made for entrapment for almost all of the eliminated contestants.

Finally, Evayna wraps up her theory and brings it all together.

It's beginning to look like Willy Wonka missed out big time.

The theory is well crafted.

Many agreed with the matter of fact assessment.









But others cannot understand why one would think it.

They have a different take on the true purpose of the contest: find a good kid, not a good person to take over the business.








And it seems Evayna forgot about the true test in the movie.


All in all, it's a fun idea to toy with. Violet is a determined go-getter with a penchant for candy.

She really seems on paper to be a great successor to Wonka. What that outcome might look like, we'll have to leave to fan-fiction.
