More On Morons
Just to rub a little salt in any wound he may have been able to inflict on Lill with that little flight of fancy, Jeff asks the jury that would have been, in a Lill-Jon final, for a show of hands as to who would have voted for Lill in such a circumstance. Sandra raises her hand, as do Rupert, Christa, and Darrah. In fact, Rupert and Christa both mutter, "In a minute." That would be four votes, meaning that in theory, Lill gave up the million dollars by taking Sandra instead of Jon. Now, it's true that it's easy to say in retrospect, having seen the show, what you would do. Still, I think that, probably, those four people would in fact have voted that way, albeit while holding their noses a little. So I think Lill did probably unwittingly sacrifice the money.
And you know what else is interesting? That show of hands means that Tijuana is claiming she voted for Lill against Sandra but would have voted for Jon against Lill. Ew. What? Does that mean she would have voted for Jon against Sandra? I guess if she were going by maneuvering skill, that might hold, but...jeez, YUCK. The other people claiming they'd have voted for Jon in the fictional Lill-Jon scenario are Burton and Ryan-O...not surprising. Neither of those guys would ever own that they got beat by a middle-aged lady. In light of all these revelations, Jeff essentially asks Lill whether she feels stupid at all, and she shrugs it off, as is her only option. "I went the way my heart was," she says. "That's just Lill," she says, referring to herself in the third person, as she is wont to do, because that's a great way to endear yourself to people, provided they voted for Bob Dole. "That's not inside the game," she says, as lukewarm applause for her generosity of spirit begins. Some -- but not all -- of her tribemates applaud for her. Hey, what's it to them? They didn't lose a million bucks. Rupert leans forward and pats Lill on the back. Oh, what a relief. Thanks, Daddy!
