"Janu," Jeff asks, "why keep you?" Janu thinks for a minute. "No reason," she says. "They can get rid of me." Steph actually wiggles in her seat and sighs, so uncomfortable is she with this developing suckfest. "There's no reason they should keep you?" Jeff asks Janu. "No, because I have to be honest. I had a really rocky road, so if I was them, God, I'd be sick of myself already." Steph's eyes go buggy with disbelief. "You almost seem like you want to go home," Jeff says to Janu, which is actually rather an understatement, since she's now said twice in a row that the team should get rid of her. "It doesn't matter, Jeff. Whatever happens, happens," she says. "I'm completely satisfied." Jeff moves up only a fairly small step by saying, "Is there a part of you that wants to say, 'Yes, vote me out'?" "Yes, absolutely," Janu says. "But I don't know what they'll do."
Jeff turns to Ian. "Why keep somebody who's saying, 'I want out of this game; I'm not going back to camp'?" Ian is the first to literally raise the issue of quitting, saying, "If you feel like you don't want to continue in this game -- if you feel like, you know, you want to set your torch down -- then you have the power to do that. You have the ability and the power to set your torch down at any time. And there's nobody keeping you here."
Now, Jeff moves to Stephenie, pointing out that "if looks could kill, Janu would be on the ground." Heh. Steph says that it's not anything she has against Janu, but that it makes her crazy to hear somebody say she doesn't care if she's here or not. Steph tears up talking about how she's desperate to stay, and would do anything to stay, and here's Janu who doesn't want to stay, and it appears that she's going to. Janu tells Steph to understand that Janu has "already received what [she] needed to receive from this whole experience." Steph is not comforted. Me neither. Steph says that's fine, if Janu doesn't care, but Steph still cares. "Someone asks me to vote them out?" Steph says. "See ya. Because you don't deserve to be here." "So you feel you're in the hot seat tonight," Jeff says. "I know I am," Steph says, now quite in tears. She tells Jeff that it's driving her crazy that somebody who wants to go home really badly is going to stay, and that Steph herself is going to go home for being too much of a bad-ass. Tom looks at the ground, because he does not like the way that sounds. He is supposed to be pro-bad-ass, and this is sort of interfering with that construct.
