And then there's Erik. Li'l Russell says nothing about Erik as a person, only how Galu getting rid of him helped Li'l Russell. Brett says Erik was a "fierce competitor." "Almost ... psycho?" Mick adds. Very respectful, Mick. At least Erik had a personality. Erik says he was betrayed by his tribe but then vindicated when they were voted out one-by-one. Also, they put in the shot of him getting clotheslined by the clothesline. That's not nice, editors. And then, random Kelly, who makes a series of confused expressions in her montage as she voiceovers that in this game, the men seem to always be terrified of the women, and that's why she was taken out. Ha ha! If they had targeted a guy instead, Brett wouldn't be there to win all those immunity challenges and possibly screw Foa Foa over in the end. Brett says Laura was "such a strong competitor" and she reminds us that despite her incredibly advanced age of 39, she's the hottest shit in town. She says she's "re-stereotyping the grandma" as she reminds us that she is one. Seriously, Laura? Being a 39-year-old grandma is not necessarily something to be proud of. Oh, and speaking of grandmas, mine is reading this right now! Hi, Grandma!
John is next. Li'l Russell laughs at him for thinking he was telling the truth. Meanwhile, Mick, Brett and Natalie do not then think to themselves that they might want to doubt if Li'l Russell told them the truth. John says that he was in a tribe full of "idiots who can't process things properly" so it's not his fault he lost. Okay,
asshole. Sorry, Grandma! I mean "jerk." Dave Ball is next, and they insist on calling him by his stupid nickname. Natalie says he was "hilarious." Dave Ball says he knows he isn't the easiest person to get along with and has accepted that he will be "misunderstood" because of that. John might have thought that Dave Ball and the rest of Galu were idiots, but Dave Ball is obviously the most self-aware and possibly intelligent of the bunch. Too bad that didn't translate into success in this game or even trying for it. Then it's time for Monica, who Li'l Russell says was "the fakest person here." "Well ... " Natalie trails off as Brett says that Monica "wanted to go out fighting." Monica says her competitors in challenges were "well-apped," so apparently she thought she was playing this game against iPhones? Weird. But then she realized she had inner strength or something, and that's worth a million dollars to her. Except I'm sure she'd rather have the million dollars.
