Willard goes out and talks to Coby about figuring he's probably going, and about whether Coby could fit into his shorts -- presumably wondering if he should leave them behind. Coby doesn't even try to deny it, because this is Willard's "goodbye, cruel world" moment, and it would be wrong to deny it to him. Willard tells Coby that he had his good and bad moments, and had fun, and seasons in the sun, and so forth. Coby complains to Willard that it's sad that Willard is going before Katie, who's "so worthless." Worthless people are such a draaaag. Willard says that the game is about personalities, and that he has "almost no ability to schmooze." Right. In other words, people who get along with each other are phonies, which is one of my favorite philosophies. It's basically the old-man version of the ever-annoying "I'm just keepin' it real!" defense that's been chapping me for many seasons of many shows.
Coby interviews that tonight will indeed see the booting of Willard. And again, he says that there's nothing he can do to change that, given that he doesn't "have the numbers." He says that at this point, attempts to change the outcome would only make things worse for Coby himself. "It's a popularity contest," he reasons. "If I act like a bitch, nobody's going to like me. I'm not going to stick around." Coby and Willard share another warm moment in which Willard refers to himself as a "curmudgeon." Yep. He is most definitely keeping it real. Coby returns in his interview to the topic of how much he doesn't like Katie. "She doesn't do anything, and she's stiiiiill here," he whines nasally. Yeah, she's not like Coby, who...does a lot, I'm sure, not that we've ever seen very much of it. He claims that he will be very upset if Katie gets farther in the game than he does, which is the kind of comment that always makes me instantly hope that she gets farther in the game than he does. Especially since he promises to "puke, puke, puke."
In a sequence I do not enjoy because it involves two people who are dully self-satisfied, Gregg asks Coby whether he knows about the vote and is "cool with that." Coby tries for "bitter ironic laughter" or something as he looks away and then looks back. That was...obnoxious. Gregg asks Coby if he wants to take a walk, and Coby agrees. They wander off, and when they finally stop to talk, Gregg tells Coby, basically, that he and Anonymous Jen are aware that they're stuck in a five-person alliance in which they're a minority. In other words, Ian, Tom, and Katie will ultimately stick together, in all likelihood. Thus, Anonymous Jen and Gregg have a plan to switch, once they're rid of everyone else, and make a new four-person alliance with Coby and Janu, in order to boot Tom, Ian, and Katie. This, of course, delights Coby to no end, because he doesn't like Ian, Tom, or Katie, and because it's his first glimmer of hope at not being ultimately crushed under the wheels of that five-person alliance.
