Someone asks whether the women would have picked the same Men on Ice in a social setting. Guess what Sissie's answer is. No, really, guess! "I would have still picked Tim," says Cecile. "Which Tim, that Tim?" says Rebekah, as she points to Old Tim, and they both go, "Timmy!" which I now realize isn't meant to be dismissive but was actually a South Park reference. Anyone confused by how smiley and friendly Cecile and Rebekah are being to Old Tim? Confused that she says she'd pick Old Tim again? I hope I'm not the only one completely confused. I hope I'm not the only one who wanted to grab Cecile and ask her if she's losing her mind. Did we skip an episode? Doesn't she hate his guts? Doesn't Rebekah hate him too for hurting Cecile? Yet here the two of them are, being all friendly, yelling "Timmy!" like they're really tight with the guy, who just sits there, motionless. New Tim, though -- who doesn't know when the fuck to quit -- says, "Did he ask to drink out of your shoe?" which is quickly slammed by Cecile: "No, he's not psycho!" Ouch. That's gotta hurt. Everyone explodes into laughter, as New Tim says, "Well-read we are, Cecile." Another fine comeback from New Tim. I don't think anything could possibly be more cutting to a marriage reality show contestant than to be told she's not well-read. I imagine Cecile will be off the bathroom for another three-hour crying-and-swearing jag after that well-timed barb, Tim!
Troy asks the women some dumb question about what kind of dumb Alaskan date the women would take the men on, giving Rebekah the chance to be her regular annoying fake "real" self, as she explains they'd eat moose that she herself hunted by a fire made with wood that she herself "caught," and everyone busts on her for the "caught the wood" comment. Terry asks why some of the women kept the same Man on Ice all the way through (this would be Karen, Sissie, and Andrea) instead of trying to meet as many of the men as possible. God, I hope Andrea doesn't answer, because of three of them, she's clearly the most deluded -- oh, shit, there she goes. She explains that she decided to do something she's never done: "I'm going to allow myself to see something through to the end." I really don't know what to say about Andrea. I don't. I think she desperately wants to see herself as a strong woman who, with her partner Kristian, can work through any obstacle to a loving relationship. Someone, for the love of god, PLEASE clue her in to the fact that Kristian is the obstacle to love in this case. She blah blahs about having to make tough decisions when it came to Kristian and her because, she says, he was uncertain about any kind of future for them. Good god almighty. Since I speak Guy a whole lot better than I understand Girl, let me explain, Andrea. If a guy actually comes out and tells you he doesn't think you have a future together, it means he doesn't want a future with you, but he's willing to have sex with you for as long as you let him, which will be until you figure out you won't change his mind.
