Mama-bonding segment. Lori, Tonya, and Danielle sit around yakking about their kids, and they talk to the camera about how much they love talking about their kids. Based on the people I know who have kids, this is easy for me to believe. Once again, we hear some more talk about Tonya and how superior her body looks for a lady who has five kids. I completely agree, and I completely give her all appropriate credit, but I must also point out that the fake boobs do help a little. Meanwhile, Jason explains that he's bonding with the moms, because he loves the sheer mom-ness of the moms. He finds them refreshingly mom-like. And mom-alicious.
And now, Marcellas's Lament. He explains in the diary room that he is "tormented." What is he tormented about? "Tonya's bad hair color...the lizards...how shiny [he is] because of this L.A. humidity...." He goes on to say that he wants to get rid of Tonya and Lori. In Tonya's case, this is because he's tired of hearing about her kids and her divorce, but he's not hot on her look, either. "I'm hating her outfits, I'm hating those huge phony breasts, and the bad teeth-bleaching..." He has problems with Lori's look, too. "Lori in that denim romper," he despairs. "[It] was bad enough, and then she put that pink, fuzzy tank top under it, and I was like...[beat] 'wow.' Those were courageous choices, but bad ones." He doesn't like her snakeskin bikini, either. Now, the hating of Josh: "It doesn't surprise me that Josh is also a Scorpio, because Josh is making me crazy. I am a Scorpio, too, and we are crazy jockeys for attention." HEY! Shut up. All right, hate me if you will, but I giggled myself silly at that entire sequence. It's about time we had a houseguest with the wisdom to be horrified by the way these people dress. ["I'm saying. Marcellas is a delight." -- Wing Chun]
Josh hates Marcellas right back, but that's not nearly as interesting. He manages to be vaguely offensive in his characterizations without being amusing in the slightest. Get off my TV, you little ratweasel.
Now, Josh is maneuvering with regard to the nominations. He is no longer willing to be nominated alongside Marcellas, because he isn't confident that his alliance will hold together. Yeah, no shit. So he's going from person to person, acting paranoid about what Lisa is going to do. Josh's inability to relax and feign unconcern is only one of the many reasons you can tell that his copy of Evil Doctor Will's Guide To Winning The Whole Shebang has many, many coffee stains on it that obscure key portions of the text. He attempts to talk to Lisa directly about how he thought they had some kind of magical bond during the nest competition, and now he's concerned that she isn't his sweet patootie anymore. Or something like that. You know, Josh, lose the bandanna already. Carolina blue is not your color. Or anyone's color. Lisa is very annoyed by his attempts to operate on her. He bugs Amy. He bugs Chiara. Everyone is sick of the paranoia. Lori tells Lisa and Chiara that she wants him out.
