Under the shelter, Jon asks the women whether they have a deal for the final three. "You can be honest," he says. They say nothing. "I take that as a yes," he says. He interviews: "It seems fairly obvious that the three of them have formed some kind of a bond, because all three of them have inferiority complexes to that of a man." Oh, come on. That's just insulting. No, no, not the misogynistic bullshit is insulting -- the fact that he thinks the audience is going to bite on the misogynistic bullshit is insulting. There is such a thing as being so over-the-top that you're not even able to inspire genuine anger anymore. I mean, Jon has done some fairly audacious things, but the problem for his planned glory is that he's...not interesting. No matter how much they play him up and he gives himself monikers and makes hand gestures and they declare that he's one of the most riveting blah blah blah ever, I mean...he just doesn't have any style. He isn't witty, or deliciously bad, or anything of that sort. He just comes out and says, "Dude, women suck! I hate chicks! They're inferior to men!" He doesn't have delivery, he doesn't have character, he's just...he's so obviously just saying things to be shocking and to be a Big Famous Villain™ that he's not even fun. He's just kind of an ordinary barroom jackass of the kind you can find anywhere. His routine isn't offensive to me as much as it is incredibly weak and tired. Good villains are people you can't take your eyes off. Richard Hatch. Team Guido. Evil Doctor Will. Jon has nothing to do with those people. Jon is just an obnoxious, insecure prick. Those aren't exactly an endangered species, you know.
