Meanwhile, Knight is repeatedly telling Trishelle that he’s just trying to get into Nany’s head because it’s part of the game. Trishelle says she’s never seen such a terrible display of disrespect between men and women, because apparently she’s gotten amnesia between now and the last time she was on one of these things and/or around her fellow former Real Worlders. Knight insists that he’s not an idiot (well…) and that he’s the best manipulator there.
Dude, constantly talking about manipulation is NOT the same thing as actual, effective manipulation. Who trained this fool, Wes?
The next morning, Knight is still defending himself, and Zach half-heartedly backs him up. Jemmye says she’s sick of being held responsible for Knight’s stupidity, and vice versa. Jemmye tells us that the entire incident has reminded her that she did the right thing in breaking up with Knight. Yeah, ya think? Now let’s see if she can stick by that.
Nany has decided that she does want to stay, but she’s had enough of the politics. She is determined not to let anyone break her down to the point that she just gets up and leaves. Just until she has a mental breakdown and has to be removed in a straight jacket, apparently. She says she’ll perform in the challenges and if she gets sent to the ARENA, so be it. If that happens, she intends to come back and kick some ass.
Devyn and Big Easy are arguing because she doesn’t want to admit the age of the oldest man she’s dated. She says she doesn’t want to keep secrets, but she’s hesitant to tell him because she thinks it will turn into a long conversation that she’s not prepared to have yet and/or while on a Challenge. They go back and forth a whole bunch more about walls and guards and being open, and it’s all just getting a bit repetitive at this point.
“Who cares how old he was? His wallet was THIS BIG!”
Devyn is telling Jemmye what happened (Easy asked, she said she didn’t want to talk about it just yet, he accused her of lying) when Knight comes over to throw in his two cents. He says that Big Easy feels like he’s not good enough for her, a sentiment that Knight understands all too well. Devyn continues to win me over by being utterly flabbergasted at the notion that Knight is coherent, intelligent, and helpful.
Knight claims that he’s “a Dr. Phil” with other people’s relationships, but he always fucks up his own…. and now he’s counseling Big Easy. Oh, what fresh hell is this? He assures Easy that Devyn is really into the relationship, and he shouldn’t waste time. He should spend as much time with her as he can, because they never know when it will be over, except that they do because they’ll be up against each other in elimination tomorrow.
Remember a few episodes ago, when Danny and Melinda were trying to fix someone else’s relationship, and you thought you’d seen it all? You ain’t seen nothing yet. We are through the looking glass, here.
