Nomination day. Everyone is nervous. Ritual, keys, et cetera. Again, Amy is wearing incredibly dark eye makeup, which makes me think she planned to cry her head off and wanted to make sure her mascara ran appropriately. I'm completely serious. Anyway, her nominees are Chiara and...Roddy. Amy explains that her nominations have nothing to do with revenge. She's lying, of course, but so what? She boo-hoos through the entire thing. It's certainly very self-pitying stuff, for someone who spent all week spitting things like "I want her out" through her teeth. This is pretty much the most full-of-it nomination speech ever, and I've seen nomination speeches from Nicole. And Hardy. And Chiara. And Gerry. Shut up, Amy. Amy tells Roddy he's up for the same reason he put Marcellas up -- he's Kiki's ally. When it's over and Amy toddles off to her room to eat cheese and begin what is going to be a nine-hour process of removing her eye makeup, Chiara gets up and storms out of the house. She throw herself into the hammock. Aw, that's just how I used to react to being upset by something like this. Except I was eight, of course. Kiki voices over that she doesn't believe Amy about "not being revengeful." She begins her endless bitchfest about the unfairness of it all by saying that she had no chance for a strategy, because she didn't know someone was coming back. Of course, she did before she did nominations, but hey -- what's a little truth to a self-pitying phony? The second self-pitying phony in this one paragraph? Kiki cries in the hammock, and Lisa comes to see her. Lisa pretends she came to check on Chiara, but I think she just wanted to watch her crying, because sometimes watching girls you hate cry is really fun. Sad, but true. Lisa offers to sit with her, which she totally doesn't deserve, but Kiki sends her away.
In the HoH room, Amy whines about how hard it all was. Marcellas explains in the DR that Amy is needy and desperate to be liked, apparently believing this will come as some sort of surprise to us. Good grief, Marcellas, Amy couldn't be more obvious on this point unless her forehead was tattooed with "I Am Needy And Desperate To Be Liked." Marcellas, unsurprisingly, loved her nomination speech, since it was the same kind of self-congratulatory and utterly untrue crapola he generally unleashes in similar situations. He compliments Amy on how honest it was. Oh, for God's sake. This is completely flatulent and revolting. Roddy knocks on the door, and Amy literally leaps to her feet and runs across the bed to get the door so he can hug her and tell her he forgives her for nominating him. See? See how they're playing this out again? She's so sorry for sucking so much. He forgives her. Sigh. After he leaves, she tells Marcellas that it's all okay, because if she weren't in the house, Roddy and Chiara would have gone up anyway. So much for wanting to make her own decision.
