Jenna comes to Alicia again, because Alicia's pouting so persistently, and tries to make her feel better. Alicia is incredibly snappy and rude, considering that whatever her flaws, Jenna does seem to be legitimately trying to be helpful. Alicia interviews that she doesn't want anybody trying to make her feel better, and goes on specifically to slam Jenna as "the last person that [Alicia] would go to for consoling." Really? After Shii Ann? After Rupert? Whatever. Your bitchery, and welcome to it, Alicia.
Jenna and Rupert take a walk and discuss the upcoming reward. She suggests that he pick an order of people and present choices to them in the order that he picks them. He grumps that he almost wishes he hadn't won that challenge. He interviews that this was what got him last time -- he "let a pecking order be known," and then he was next to go. There's some truth to that, which is surprising, since it's Rupert saying it. Jenna encourages him to take a good meal for himself, and not get all martyr about it. Of course, being a martyr is Rupert's favorite thing aside from psychotic coconut chopping, so that is asking quite a lot of him. Jenna interviews -- yes, arrogantly, but also correctly -- that Rupert is not a good strategic thinker and frequently "needs some coaching." They chat more about giving Shii Ann the rice (heh), and then Rupert interviews that the game is "geared to create hard feelings." Apparently, this is something he has noticed only recently. I think he holds the record, considering that it has taken him one and three-quarters seasons to notice the conceit of the show. Soon, he will be rubbing his eyes, talking about how deceit and trickery seem to be part of the game with these people.
