We’re back to the Glass House where Jeff is bawling. He’s not crying over Erica going down the tubes. He’s crying over the fact that the other team voted against equality. Oh Jeff, that’s not the issue here and this isn’t Political House. It’s a silly TV show. What I really like is that he’s crying all of this to a black man. Oh yes. You know those blacks just don’t get all of this reality TV show discrimination. They only had to deal with slavery, the KKK, segregation, fights for civil rights. They just don’t understand your plight here on this reality show where you’re up for a quarter of a million dollar prize.
Saving the world, one reality show at a time.
Andrea’s mad because she was voted for based on her religion and political beliefs. I get that, but at the same time don’t you realize how small that is in comparison to your votes against civil rights for gays? Yes, yes. I am definitely playing both sides of the fence here.
Kevin and Mike are talking about how real they are compared to the others who have jobs like scientist and Playboy model. Yeah, those scientists aren’t normal people. By the way, what the hell is up with Mike’s ‘do?
So faux-hawks are the new combover?
Ashley comes out to tattle on Joy who was talking about how untrustworthy Kevin is. He’s mad now that Joy was attacking his character, which is that he will bone a chick but vote her into Limbo. Kevin goes to Joy to hear it straight from her. He’s really mad, which I find pretty funny. Aren’t you all playing stereotypes anyway? He says he isn’t playing anyone – he’s the only real person in the house. Joy says she’s sorry for attacking his character and he says, “I’m sorry you’re crying.” Nice. That’s like saying, “I’m sorry you feel that way.” It’s such an asshat political “apology”.
Today is the one year anniversary of the death of Gene’s best friend. He’s upset that he’s not home with his friends to remember him. Now we know what his hat means. His friend was 30 years old when he passed. Joy approaches him to find out why Gene is sad. He tells her and they cuddle. It’s all very touching. I’m sure you’re being honest, Gene, but Stephanie already played the dead loved one card. You pulled that out a week too late.
Next up is a recap of the live July Fourth webisode. Stephanie tells the viewers about Robin taking sleeping pills and Joy tells the other team that they only like Robin because she’s easily manipulated. Mike attacks Joy for liking Gene. He says she’s playing him and mentions something about racism. Not sure what he’s trying to say, but it all looks as though Joy doesn’t get the fact that the men attack her because she’s an easy target. She takes everything they say to heart. Of course, that could also be her strategy. God, I’m so confused!
Joy pulls Mike aside. Mike says Joy’s using Gene for racism. I still have no idea what he’s talking about. I guess if I watched the live feeds I’d understand, but that’s more commitment than I’m willing to give. She points out that her child is ¼ black. Well, I’m 1/230498234 black, so I totally understand where you’re coming from. Mike jumps on her for mentioning race and asks her what that has to do with anything. Weren’t you just talking about racism for some unknown reason? I think maybe the confusion in all of this lies in the fact that Mike doesn’t know the difference between “race” and “racism”. I think he thinks they’re interchangeable terms. That would make more sense when you think about it. And here he is telling Joy she’s not smart enough to put words into his mouth. Probably not. It takes a lot more to figure out what an idiot would think rather than what a smart person would think, because you’re not predicting a logical mind.
Seriously. When is someone going to have a frank conversation with Mike about his hair and popped collar?
