My Question Is This
One lesson of Gregg's speech is the importance of momentum. Some juries arrive with an agreed-upon villain they will blame for their woes or take turns beating up on, and this jury had picked Katie. Once they got going, it was hard for anyone to slow it down, but interestingly, it slowed when Katie took some initiative, which jury targets almost never do. She declined to even deal with Janu, the wilting, melodramatic showgirl-slash-quitter, not one of whose visible ribs was planning to vote for Katie anyway. Katie also had one of her more likable moments in shooting down a hectoring, judgmental Caryn, who tried to escape her position as the jury's boring, uncool aunt by joining in the bullying. Knowing that Caryn couldn't realistically claim to have played any better (or even differently) than she did, Katie saddled up and told Caryn that the reason they were on opposite sides of the fire was that Katie made an alliance and Caryn didn't -- stopping just short of adding, "So suck it." Seriously, just short. By then, Katie wasn't playing for the win; she was playing for getting it over with and getting a few licks in. Katie was obviously a fairly mucked-up character in a few ways. But something about the way Gregg nearly spat the word "pathetic" at her survives as one of the most overt attempts to cause actual distress that any bitter juror has ever produced.
"My question is: [slow clap]."
Out of a season of sourpusses, Alicia was the sourest puss of them all. (Lex was more "delusional," and he will be dealt with separately.) What made Alicia such a funny juror to watch was that from the moment she was voted off, she spent every tribal council trying to stare daggers at everyone with angry little pursed lips, as if she had the option of refusing to vote for anyone and therefore was in a position to make demands.
