Probst gives up on Jud and moves on to Chase, reminding us that he was only one vote away from winning before knocking him for being "wishy-washy" for most of the game. Chase's excuse is that all the lying and backstabbing necessary to be well in this game drove him crazy and he figures that's not such a bad thing since it means he's a good person. Who probably shouldn't have been on this show in the first place, then. Probst asks if he and Brenda had anything romantic going on during the show. Chase says they flirted in the beginning, but were just "good friends" and still are. He adds that he would never hook up with a girl on this show because his mom would see it. THANK YOU, Chase! I never understand why people on reality shows hook up with each other and never seem to care that their family can see it. Keep it in your pants until the show is over and then do it privately. It's not that difficult.
Probst asks Sash about his relationship with Brenda, which, as we all know, was not romantic. By the way, what's the deal with Sash, Chase, Jud, and Ben not shaving before going on TV? Did they take all the razors out of the dressing rooms for fear that Naonka or Jane would try to kill someone with them, or that Jud was just too high to be trusted with one? Unless you're House, please don't go on TV with a half-beard. Thank you. Probst asks Sash why he didn't try to save Brenda by giving her the immunity idol. I love how the immunity idol was pretty much useless this season. I hope we never see it again. Sash and Brenda explain that right before Brenda was voted out, Sash found out that she was plotting to vote him out, thanks to Naonka the tattletale. Brenda didn't deny it when Sash asked her, so he decided it was not a good idea to keep her around. Probst asks Brenda why, if she knew she wasn't getting the idol, did she still do nothing to try to stay in the game. Brenda, who looks amazing, by the way, doesn't really have much of an answer for that, saying that she was "still hoping" for the idol even though she knew it wouldn't happen. And she figured there was no point trying to appeal to people who wanted her out since the beginning of the game. With that, Probst changes the subject back to himself and how he told Sash, during the casting process, that he would be the first person voted out. Why is Probst involved with the casting process at all? You can either be a producer or a host, but not both, Probst. Ridiculous. Plus, he clearly sucks at it, since he was wrong about Sash and probably had a hand in casting such terribleness as Naonka and the other Kelly. Probst apologizes to Sash, who says that when Probst told him he'd be the first person gone, he said he'd see him on Day 39, and he was right.
