Now we see a conversation in which Joanna comes upon Jenna and some of the other babes chatting. Jenna tells Joanna that the conversation concerns how they get by in this unfamiliar situation instead of their "comfort zone." Joanna responds that her mother always said that this, too, shall pass, and that anything worth doing is going to be difficult. And then she quotes some scripture which basically says -- roughly translated -- as follows: "And God said, 'Looks aren't everything, peach pit.'" "Beauty will fade in time," Joanna goes on, slapping herself with her buff to repel bugs. And Satan. Joanna finishes: "Only your virtue and your character is what's going to last." A gobsmacked Heidi snots in an interview, "I'm really not sure how that quote fit in with anything." Ha! She wouldn't, of course. "Except maybe that she was just trying to pick on the fact that we were cute girls." It's a shame, because Heidi would be so absurdly funny if she weren't so sincere in her eye-rolling indignation, which just makes her...almost too pitiable to really hate. She's got about two good years before the implants sag, and after that, the woman simply isn't going to have anything to say, and she's going to be completely irrelevant.
In an interview of her own, Jenna smirks, "Don't be mad because we have good bodies. It's not our fault. Get over it." And then she snort-laughs at herself. Wow, like she needed a self-snort-laugh to make her more vile. She then voices over, "Me and Heidi are definitely the skinnier of the group, and better-looking, but I think it's definitely a liability. I think that's what we were both worried about." Oh, oy. She goes on to say that the risk that she will be voted off comes from the fact that the other women will be "pissed that [she and Heidi] have good bodies." Jesus. You know, these two women represent what is generally on my least of top three least favorite qualities in other human beings, which is the ability to name a single explanation that negates every criticism to which you might ever be subjected -- in this case, it's the "I am cute; people are jealous" explanation. And you can see how it happens, too -- they take this attitude and therefore act like complete bitches, just like Jenna and Heidi are now. At that point, people do indeed respond badly to them, which they assume is because they're jealous. And as it was explained on Sports Night back in the day, "That's what makes it vicious. And a circle." Let me just fill you in on a little secret, Jenna: there are women whose looks I covet, certainly, but they are never, ever women who look like a stiff wind would blow them over. Have you seen Joanna, with the big guns for arms? Now Joanna, I would like to look like. Joanna could look like a zillion bucks in a party dress, and she could also beat up vampires in an alley, if that were called for. Jenna, however, cluelessly goes on blathering in her interview about how it's so hard to be hot, because other women resent you, and so forth and so on. Not that we've seen even one tiny hint of this from any of the other women. But she's sure it's there. It's lurking. It's the Lurking Jealousy of Cows. Beware!
