Brad, whose feelings about all this ganging up on people seem to be decidedly mixed, interviews that he's heard Adam "snap at" Cristina and call her "annoying," and that he thinks it's kind of low and tacky. Brad thinks the issue is just that Cristina is used to being in charge and not used to people telling her what to do. Back at the fire, Cristina says that she wishes they'd just said something to her about the things that were bothering them, but Adam insists that it's just "her personality" -- in other words, he claims didn't tell her until it was time to ambush her at tribal council, because there's nothing she can do about it. In a comment I like even less than this crap from Adam, Jenny jumps in and says, "We accept you for who you are! You can't change it, Cristina." That is...just a horrible thing to do to someone. "I've known you for all of a week, I don't like you, and the things I don't like about you are so fundamental to your being that it's not worth even telling you what they are, so I'm barely going to bother." And then to top it off by claiming the high ground by saying "we accept you for who you are"? That's not accepting people for who they are. That's the opposite of accepting people for who they are. "I know you're bossy, but I can deal with that and still enjoy the good things about you" is accepting people for what they are. "Your flaws are many, and I accept them as permanent" is quite different. As to this whole thing, I mean...whatever, I get that Cristina is "bossy," and I doubt I'd want to hang out with her, but for fuck's sake, you might as well agree to spend a day or two pointing out to her when she's being bossy. It's an act of fairness, being willing to engage people once you've ripped them a new asshole.
