And now, Caryn. She asks Tom what she was to him. Pawn? Friend? Tom reminds her that she never was promised that she was in any alliance with Tom. He says he just told her they could "look out for each other's backs." And she returns to all her stuff about whether it was "legitimate and genuine," and blah blah, and then Tom tells her that he won't answer -- she should find the answer "in [her] heart." Barf. Now, Caryn moves on to Katie. She says she's going to say what she "observe[d]" about Katie: "You were phony and cruel to everyone except Tom and Ian. Aside from that, I also observed, laziest person at camp, mean, bad at challenges, unkind, and betrayed me. Give me one reason I should vote for you." I love that Caryn called Katie out for being bad at challenges. Caryn was probably the only person more lame than Katie at challenges. If Katie needed someone to whoop at log-rolling in order to save her life, I think Caryn is exactly whom she would call. I think, incidentally, that it's during Caryn's question that Katie realizes that she has absolutely no shot at the money whatsoever, and she just moves on to getting through the rest of this as painlessly as possible. She says that she's sorry Caryn thinks she's unkind, and she's sorry Caryn is obviously judging on a personal level. Caryn gets all, "The question was, Katie, these are the things I observed." Which wasn't the question. The question was "Give me one reason I should vote for you." And what Katie is saying is that if you think she sucks as a person and you're voting on a personal level, there's probably no reason to vote for Katie, because the reasons she could give you to vote for her are game-based. I also love that Caryn tries to dis Katie for being "carried" by an alliance, as if that isn't exactly what Caryn tried to do. I mean, honestly. Caryn basically tried to displace Katie in Katie's alliance, and now she's trying to get snitty? Whatever. Katie tells Caryn that there's no shame in alliances. And with the growing boldness of the condemned, Katie says, "That's why you're sitting over there, because you didn't make one." Spot-on, of course. Caryn has no smart-ass comeback for this, so she sarcastically says, "I got it, Katie," which is her way of pretending she's just holding back her brilliant rejoinder.
