Kelly, whoever that is, steps up and addresses Natalie first. She says she and Natalie were very similar players, but while Kelly believes she grew strong and overcame stereotypes about her, Natalie never relied on herself and always needed help from someone else. Kelly does not add that this approach took Natalie to the Final Three while Kelly has been out of the game for a long time, so I will. Natalie says that while she wasn't the strongest player physically, she thinks she improved as the game progressed and she definitely did things on her own. Li'l Russell is the next focus of Kelly's random wrath. She asks him if the way he played this game by lying, cheating and stealing is the same way he acts in the real world. Of course, he says it isn't and that he is worried that his children will think he's really like this when they see the show. Hey, didn't he lie that he was a victim of Hurricane Katrina for no reason? And then laugh about it? What will his kids think about that? I hope they burn his socks and say "I learned it by watching you!" He says that while "lie, cheat and cheat" describes him in the game, "honor, integrity and loyalty," describes him outside of it. Does anyone really believe this? Especially if he truly is a successful business owner. Kelly says she has a hard time believing that, but hasn't she had, like, four questions already? Can't someone make her sit down? This is the most she's spoken in the entire season. Also, her dreadlocks are stupid.
Monica is next. She says that while Li'l Russell obviously played the game hard, she never saw any "passion" from Mick or Natalie and wants to see some fight from them tonight. She asks Mick why he deserves the money and Natalie and Li'l Russell do not. He says Natalie doesn't deserve it because she didn't do anything except align with Li'l Russell and let him bring her to the end. Whereas Mick did what, exactly? Oh, that's right -- he aligned with Li'l Russell and let him bring him to the end. Mick says that Li'l Russell doesn't deserve the money because "he was willing to lie to people, pit people against each other, mislead anybody," and basically played the game while everyone else sat around scratching his ass and letting himself by played. Also, Mick says, Li'l Russell has a big ego. So he doesn't think Li'l Russell's "behavior" or "character" deserve a million dollars. Li'l Russell is given a chance to rebut Mick's points and, after a brief argument with Mick that ends, of course, with Mick giving up and being quiet, Li'l Russell says that Mick was complicit in everything Li'l Russell did in the game and approved of all the moves he made that he is now saying don't deserve to win. He says that both Mick and Natalie gave him high-fives and congratulated him every time someone else went home. Mick denies this, but come on. It's true! And a good point from Li'l Russell. On the other hand, while Mick was sincere in his congratulations of Li'l Russell, I have a feeling that Natalie said most of that stuff just to feed into Li'l Russell's tremendous ego and stay firmly on his good side to further herself in the game. Monica pats herself on the back for stirring shit up one last time and sits down.
