Remember when Trey barely had a personality for his entire season? And hey, remember when Robb actually DID have a personality? I never thought I’d say it, but I miss those days. Trey says he’s not good at keeping his mouth shut, and he’s not going to kiss Frank and Zach’s asses. They eventually get frustrated and leave. Marie has had it up to here with Trey and his inability to put on his poker face and do what he needs to do not to get put into an elimination round.
She may be a rookie, but she’s clearly a veteran on the viewer side.
TJ gathers everyone for the announcement, and of course Frank is elected to speak. St. Thomas and Fresh Meat are the two teams who had meetings with the All-Powerful, so naturally they are the two who are worried as we go to commercial. Just once I’d like to see the editors completely throw us off and find out that Brooklyn got thrown in, either with no explanation whatsoever or with an explanation after the fact.
… Of course, we all know that’s not what happened. It will be Fresh Meat (which Cara Marie seems to think was inevitable) going up against Austin in an endurance ARENA.
Da club. Sarah is excited for a night out without drama, alliances, etc. What is she, new here?
NO. NO, SHE IS NOT. She is the vettiest vet on this entire season, I think. She’s probably spent more time on these things than everyone else combined.
However, the drama doesn’t seem to involve her. Laura and Trey are flirting, or something, whatever. Zach and Jonna are happy to continue their flirtation. When Jonna asks what she should do, and Zach says “be with me,” she responds like so:
“I’m thinking chartreuse curtains, and Balsam and Cedar candles for the oak end tables. Tomorrow we’ll discuss our grandchildren’s names. Come prepared with a list.”
Meanwhile, Knight is trying to re-woo Jemmye, or something. She’s adamant that he doesn’t deserve a second chance and they’ll get back together over her dead body. It makes me nervous when she says things like that, because sometimes she looks a little Lohan-esque.
For some reason, Melinda has appointed herself relationship counselor for these two. Apparently they remind her of her relationship with Danny, as if that is something that should be repeated. Knight says he would marry Jemmye today, which pisses Jemmye off and melts Melinda’s heart because, again, that worked out so well with her and Danny?
This is like if Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Bynes decided to open a driving school together.
Back at the house, Knight makes the valid point (while Jemmye is nowhere to be found) that if she’s really done with him, she shouldn’t be calling him at 3 in the morning to tell him how much she misses him. Oh, did I mention that Danny is now counseling Knight through this situation? Apparently Melinda was smart enough to just straight up dump him. Danny tells us that he doesn’t want to hear Knight complain since he’s “been on this thing with a girlfriend, a fiance, a wife, and a divorcee. You think YOU’VE got problems?” … and now Danny is talking strategy and encouraging Knight to focus on the game.
This is like watching Charlie Sheen try to run a halfway house.
