More On Morons
Next, Jeff asks Christa about non-dead Granny Fairplay, and whether she thinks it's possible to go too far with lying. She says that she only wishes she had thought of it -- hey, no hard feelings! Well, of course. That's the way things go. When you lose, you rewrite the script so that you didn't get screwed, even though you did. You don't mind at all! You're not the least bit bitter! It's just what you would have done! Jeff asks Lill how she feels about it, and she does the same song and dance, despite pointing out that her mother just died. I'm telling you, they're all completely full of it. They're saying it's fine, because if they admit that they think he sucks, then they're admitting that they were beaten as opposed to all participating in some kind of mutual square dance in which it only looked like some people got the better of other people. I don't believe for a minute that this is actually all right with any of these people. It's what they always do: they fake being happy and fine, and then they bitch for the next ten years in their passive-aggressive manner over whatever they think they did to lose the million. That, by the way, is what I'm looking forward to the most about the All-Star edition -- a whole bunch of people who have done nothing for years but relive the moment in which they blew a million dollars, all returning determined not to make the same mistake again. Now that? Is some dramatic tension.
Jeff asks Shawn about his feelings about Jon, pointing out that the two of them almost had a fist fight. Jeff asks Shawn what kept him from hitting Jon, and Shawn says probably just the fact that he was voted off before he got around to it. Heh. Shawn goes on to say, in a way he hopes is subtle, that he thinks everyone wanted to beat Jon's skull in, so he wasn't alone, but none of them actually did it, because it's just not done. Jeff points out that there are really only two big rules in the game after all -- no hitting, and no "conspir[ing] to share the money." Therefore, was Jon hoping that Shawn might hit him and get bounced? Sure, Jon says. That would have been nifty. He also hoped maybe Rupert would hit him! Har, har! Isn't he funny? Sigh. Whatever. Isn't it over yet?
