And finally, we've got Rupert. Well, this should be annoying. And self-righteous. He tells Li'l Russell that being honest and good and true in this game is hard. Being a lying, manipulative asshole is easy. Yes, it is, when you're sociopath who doesn't care about other people's feelings. "You took the easy way out. And if you think you should be proud of how you got here, you're sadly mistaken," he lectures. Oh. Well. I kind of agree with Rupert here. Mostly in that as proud as Li'l Russell is of how he played and got to the end, he really shouldn't be, because it had nothing to do with his own gameplay and everything to do with the fact that everyone else wanted to take him to the end because he's so horrible that anyone could beat him. Rupert then turns to Sandra and says that her answers tonight have made him feel "even worse" about the way he played the game. HUH? Self-awareness from Rupert? It can't be that much, as he's still wearing a stupid tie-dyed tank top, but still. Oh, wait. He says it's not his fault that he aligned with Li'l Russell over Sandra -- he was "swayed by a disgusting human being." Yes, a disgusting human being named "Rupert's self-interest and hypocrisy." He says Sandra tried open the door for the Heroes, but they slammed it in her face over and over again. So he's going to thank her on behalf of all the Heroes on the jury tonight. "You're welcome," Sandra says, tearing up. Maybe some of those tears are guilt because of how, you know, she made him look like an idiot in her speech when she voted him out. Rupert addresses Parvati last, calling her a "very, very strong player" but she aligned herself with "terrible." Like, Rupert doesn't even have a noun for Li'l Russell anymore. Either that, or it was bleeped. Parvati defends herself, saying she didn't have a choice in who to align with -- on Day One, seven people on her tribe wanted to vote her out. Rupert says that, despite her alliance with Li'l Russell, she deserves a vote tonight because she worked hard to get to the end, as evidenced by the fact that he couldn't beat her in immunity challenges. "You deserve to be in the Final Three," he says, if only to imply that Li'l Russell does not.
