They then start discussing their choice. Yanina pulls the strategy card and feels the best plan is eliminating the strongest competitors (SummerChase), especially since she feels Summer is a far superior athlete to herself. A dual humility and strategy win. Ken shockingly claims the highest moral route is to pick the biggest, strongest competitor and kick their ass. He says it’s so the win feels more genuine. He may be confusing his strategy with how you survive your first days in prison.
“Ah Christ, now I have to manipulate this idiot”
They head over to meet with the group and have a chat
because the producers said so to get some perspective. Yanina comes straight to the point and asked if Summer and Chase are actually a couple.
“Depends on what the definition of is is”
Summer is annoyed at being seen as the “competitive couple”. This gets Cockney’s goat and he accuses Summer and Chase of being the only ones talking about who is competitive. He says they are like extreme sports junkies, chest bumping and “knuckling each other” instead of trying to find True Love.
X-treme debating. Chest bump to follow
Summer counters by pointing out that constantly having sex and showering together does not equal true compatibility. MrMarcellusWallace might disagree.
“Hey, I’ve done my share of knuckling”
Verdict? They’re both right! The best solution is really to punish all three with trips around the world together. Has Summer even thought about this “reward”? And how quickly Chase’s inferior corpse would be floating in the Adriatic Sea? Has Cockney? Does he know how heavy suitcases filled with spackle and stripper-pole grease are? Also weed is illegal in Amsterdam now so I don’t even know what he’s looking forward to.
“Please stop filming now”
The next day Ken is in a quandary over The Most Ethical choice. The iceberg duo Summer and Chase are great competitors, but don’t seem worthy as lovers.
“I totally love Chase… staying over there”
Whereas, Cockney seemed to wake up long enough to really seem passionate when defending his right to stay. He even took on Summer! That has got to be love!
That and letting her pretend to be Linda Barrett
Yanina seizes her opportunity to sway him to her original decision by pointing out that underestimating Cockney and Juggs as competitors is a mistake because their compatibility makes them work well together. Oh Yanina, the Graceful Manipulator.
You have become my favorite, good night sweet Tairhead
Cockney and Juggs spend what might be their last few minutes in bed. I am glad to see Cockney point out that he doesn’t really care whether they are sent home because they are having fun and can date in the real world anyway. Thank you! Everyone else has acted like it is an NBC-mandated breakup once you leave the island.
Not naming any names. Mostly because it’s hard to remember
