Probst asks Bill if he thinks this could go down as the dumbest move ever in the game, since not just one person gave up immunity but eight people gave up immunity. Bill says that it could be, but they won't know until it plays out. But they don't want to go into a merge with someone who can't be trusted. But wouldn't you rather have someone that you could maybe trust than be outnumbered by people from the other tribe? Probst asks Colton when this idea started. Colton says that it started when he heard about Leif's betrayal, and adds that if he doesn't like someone, he doesn't want them around at all. Probst asks who he doesn't like, and Colton says Bill, because he's "obnoxious and loud and a struggling standup comic." Colton says that with such disgust. Also, I feel like "obnoxious and loud" is code for "black." Bill doesn't get what's so bad about being a standup, and Colton tells him to get a real job. Wait, does Colton have a job? I mean, other than being made out of garbage and making ridiculous, offensive, and racist statements?
Bill takes the high road and says that he loves Colton but they come from very different backgrounds. Colton tries to interrupt but Bill asks for time to respond. Bill adds that he's not talking about race, and he's been on his own since he was seventeen, and he's poor because that's part of making it in his business. Probst asks Colton about his background. Colton says he's from a small town in Alabama, and he went to an all-white private school, but he does have African-American people in his life. I'm guessing he wasn't expecting Probst to actually follow up on that by asking, "Who?" Colton giggles and says, "My housekeeper." Ouch. And THEN! Colton makes it worse by claiming that his housekeeper is like part of his family. Probst points out that they do pay her, and I'd like to hear the housekeeper's unvarnished opinions on Colton's family and Colton in particular. Can you imagine cleaning up after Colton? He is totally the type to leave food under his bed in his room for weeks at a time, and old glasses of milk. And dirty underwear. Ugh, Colton is the worst. He claims that his problem with Bill has nothing to do with race; it's because he feels sorry for himself because he's poor. Colton also thinks Bill needs to have a back-up plan for his career. Bill loses it and goes off saying that he's following his dreams and how dare Colton judge him, and Bill doesn't work FOR anyone. Plus, Colton has never worked an honest day in his life, which is true enough. Colton keeps rolling his neck and his eyes and licking his lips and what is his problem? Probst asks if anyone in Colton's life looks down on him for being gay. Colton is sure there are, but the people that he associates with, the rich, educated types, are more open-minded. The problem is with the ones who drive trucks with Rebel flags and live in trailers. I...I can't. I can't even. I just can't parse all of the classist, racist, closed-minded, bigoted parts of that sentence. I can't. I'm glad that Colton has never had to experience homophobia, and I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with his privileged position in his small town. Gah. I do NOT get why they are keeping him.
