Congratulations, Lex. You are officially the biggest hypocritical dipshit in the history of reality television. You are more hypocritical than Rupert, you are more of a dipshit than Wil, and you are a more pitiful excuse for a competitor than Flo. Do you hear how many things in that speech make absolutely no sense? As Rob said himself right after all that happened, if Lex didn't help Rob as a strategy but instead helped him as a friend, then he would not have expected anything from Rob except personal, friend-to-friend gratitude, which Rob offered him. Rob could just as easily turn around and say the favor was done outside the game as Lex can claim that it was requested outside the game. If Lex expected a game-related payoff, then Lex did it for game-related reasons. It's right there in black and white. A favor that's done "bro to bro" (ack) is not done in exchange for anything. And let's ask Ethan about the stack of greenbacks and the selling out, while we're at it. Who said "it's business"? Who said it's not personal? Who said people just have to understand? Lex, Lex, and Lex, in case you're keeping score at home. The game exposes who you are? Yeah, it does. Either you value your friendships enough to keep them clear of the game, or you end them over the fact that you were denied your shot at the money. You know who sold out the friendship? Lex. Not Rob. Lex. Rob offered a deal, which he broke. Deals have been broken on Survivor since time immemorial, and nobody ever likes it, but it's most certainly part of the game. Lex, on the other hand, tried to cash in the personal relationship by boo-hooing all over Rob in order to get what? To get kept in the game. To get his shot at the money. In short? Get your own ass out of fishnets before you start trying to preach to the whores.
And also, "greenbacks"? Thanks, Mugsy.
Kathy goes next. She says to Rob that when he was done with Marquesas, he expressed a lot of concern about how he would be perceived. She asks him, in light of the way he treated his friends, whether he's concerned about that now. "Yeah," he says simply. "I'm concerned about it." He tells her that, quite honestly, he's still reeling from Lex's little speech there. "Here's the thing, Kat," he says. "Looking back, I'm not one hundred percent sure how I feel about the game anymore. I mean, somewhere along the way, I got caught up with playing people against each other and doing whatever I had to do to get to the end." Eck. I was disappointed that he did this. This came across to me like giving in to a lot of shit he didn't need to give in to. ["I thought he was just pretending to be contrite to win over any jury members who might still be fence-sitting." -- Wing Chun] Rob tells Kathy that, looking back, he sees it "a different way." He assures her that he didn't intentionally come out to ruin friendships, and that he's not malicious, and that he didn't intend to hurt anybody. Kathy turns to Amber and asks whether Amber played Rob as a "patsy." She demands to know whether Amber will be continuing her relationship with Rob if she wins. "And it can't be a gray area," Kathy demands. "It has to be yes or no." So in other words, Amber isn't allowed to say anything other than yes, she will definitely stay with him, or no, she definitely won't. Which is patently ridiculous, and just shows how desperately Kathy is trying to achieve relevance by beating people up just because she can. Amber says that she certainly hopes to continue her relationship with Rob. She admits that it started as strategy, but that she has genuine feelings for him. Again, she mentions the "security" and "support" things.
