Sharon asks Ryan about his eye contact with Adam after her eviction, and why he lied to her about keeping her. Ryan stammers that he was fighting for Sharon all week, and just made a last-minute decision. Chelsia then screams at Ryan about why he wants to be with Jen, who called him out as, in Chelsia's colorful phrase, "a hatred person." Ryan says he still loves Jen. "Wrong answer," Chelsia snots. Wow, that is cold. Yes, Jen is an asshole, but Ryan wouldn't have won any points by shit-talking his girlfriend either. Win or lose, Jen's still the one he's going home with. Joshuah asks Adam why he should be rewarded for making other people do his dirty work. Adam insists that he did his best in the final stage of that last HoH competition, and didn't throw it, whatever they might think. Instead of remarking on the content of Adam's speech, Joshuah lectures Adam for screaming at the TV screen, as though he's the only one. Seriously, they're all talking to each other like they're using faulty cell phones on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. James asks Adam why he's a better competitor, and why he thinks he deserves to be in the final two over Sheila. Adam points out that he brought Sheila along too, which doesn't exactly impress his partner.
Natalie's turn: Why didn't Adam keep her? She whines. Adam claims that it was down to the HoH, and says he did what he could. So Natalie turns to Ryan to ask why he didn't keep his word to her. Ryan apologizes and says that it was one of the hardest decisions he had to make. "Thanks for the honesty," Natalie says.
Sheila demands of Adam why he lied and said he would take her to the final two. Instead of letting him answer, she keeps lecturing him about how she helped him too. When he finally gets a chance to talk, Adam again repeats that he did his best in the HoH competition, and wasn't trying to screw Sheila at all. Although he does stop short of claiming that he would have taken her along instead of Ryan in the event he had won, saying that you never know until the time comes. Sheila rather owlishly says that she played a smart game too, so he shouldn't take all the credit. "Smart" meaning "not winning a single competition that wasn't thrown" in this context, I take it. Adam says he really tried to win HoH, and he doesn't care what any of the jurors believe. "Oh, really?" Joshuah snots.
