Chris heads off for a talk with Eliza, where he assures her that the two of them will vote for Twila and force the tie, and then "whatever happens, happens." Eliza grins. Her hickeyette winks in the Vanuatu sunlight. Chris tells Eliza in a voice he hopes sounds good and gloaty that Scout and Twila have no idea what's coming, because he's never let on to them that he has an alliance with her. Eliza interviews that she feels fortunate to be in the final four with "someone that I feel that I can put all my trust into." Namely, Chris. And apparently, the fact that he is lying to Twila and Scout doesn't really bother her. You'd think he would think it was really mean, considering how she's going to act later, wouldn't you? She smiles and preens as she voices over that neither of them will be voting against the other. You'd think she'd get the vibe of herself being all Marcia Brady, "I'm beautiful and noble," brushing her hair in the mirror. And, you know, maybe stop being so snotty before she winds up playing Juliet's mother. But no, we then watch as Eliza chats with Scout and tells her that she should try to get in with Chris and make some kind of a deal, because Twila already is, and Eliza would rather see Scout and Chris in the final two than Twila. So...I guess that's supposed to be some kind of a fake-out where, in Eliza's mind, she's fooling Scout into thinking that Eliza is resigned to her fate? This is getting so tricky. When Eliza "teases" Scout about joining up with her against Twila, Scout "teases" that she's considered it. Is this supposed to be exciting? This is like watching two heads of lettuce play canasta.
There is more fire-sitting as Chris voices over that "there's no loyalty" at this point, and that he is only interested in winning, and seriously, you could so totally take this portion of the show from any season, and it would be interchangeable with any other season. It's like they're not on the show; they're participating in a summer-camp skit in which they all act like they're on the show. Except there's no funny part where the whole thing turns out to be about farting. "Hell with everybody else," Chris says with a shrug. Again, that kind of risk-taking bravado would be so daring if somebody didn't say basically the same thing every season. I'm in it for myself! I'm out to win this game! I didn't come here to play for second! This isn't about friendship! I have to play the game!
