The next day, the black team goes white water rafting. It looks like a lot of fun, especially since no one manages to piss off any indigenous people and get beaten with a club. J.T. says he felt "just like a little kid." When doesn't he? Brendan, on the other hand, has fallen in love with J.T. and interviews that watching him enjoying himself on the challenge was the best part. He calls J.T. a "great soul" and says he's really sincere, and this is kind of how people describe people they think are simple. I wonder how much of this love for J.T. comes the fact that his Southern drawl makes people think he's stupid and friendly. Then there's the picnic, and sure enough, there are brownies. Huge brownies with big white chunks in them that I hope are nuts. J.T. interviews that he thought Brendan wouldn't be much fun to go on a trip with, but he was wrong and had a great time.
Debbie stupidly goes off for a swim, leaving J.T. alone with Brendan. Brendan asks J.T. if anyone from Tempura has approached him for an alliance, and J.T., the kind gentle soul with an honest, open face and fun-loving, pure nature, totally lies his ass off and says no without hesitation. Brendan says he wants to keep J.T. in the game, then interviews that he really does, in fact, want to keep J.T. in the game, to the point that if J.T. won, Brendan would consider it a win for him as well. Either Brendan is a moron, or J.T. is capable of Jedi mind tricks.
It's Day 24 at Forza, which means that Stephen has been at Exile for quite some time. Brendan is tired after having spent the entire night awake trying to figure out a way to keep J.T. in the game. Seriously? It took Douche and Tyson all of three seconds to figure it out for themselves, and they're dumb. Brendan must be super-dumb. And yet, he's a millionaire entrepreneur. This gives me hope. He goes to Sierra to tell her about his plan, beginning by saying he wants to keep J.T. in the game. "Oh, now you're making friends with him," Sierra says. Heh. Brendan says J.T. is "such a good dude" and they had an awesome time on the reward challenge Sierra didn't get to go on. Sierra goes with it, saying that she also loves J.T. even though three seconds ago she was all about getting rid of him. Brendan's plan is to activate the Exile alliance and have J.T. join them to vote out everyone else, including Erinn, which is just plain stupid. Align with Erinn, dumbasses. You should have aligned with her a long time ago, really. Sierra interviews that she "respects" J.T., then tells Brendan that "it would absolutely break my heart to send J.T. home." What? Seriously, she began this scene by saying that J.T. was being voted out and having no problem with that at all. Now she loves him too? How is J.T. able to do this without even being present???
