But we are done with Alex, and now it's Lisi's turn. Oh, Lisi. She does manage to make it to the front of the jury without falling down. Ha ha! Anyway. Lisi immediately goes here: "Eenie meenie miney mo, catch a liar by the toe." Oh, Lisi. I don't think for one minute that she knows just how much she shouldn't do this, but it's the risk you take when you decide to be a bitch. Weirdly, when Lisi finally settles, she comes to Cassandra and says she wants to see her water shoes. Cassandra lifts her foot up, and Lisi pronounces them "the worst-looking water shoes [she's] ever seen." Lisi says that this means Cassandra was "completely unprepared." Thus spake the quitter, who wanted to curl up in a hole after about a day and a half without fresh fruit and a coffee machine. Lisi asks Cassandra if she'd agree, and Cassandra says no: "It's Day 39, and I'm still here, and my shoes are still here..." By this point, Lisi is dramatically rolling her head around in frustrated disgust. The theme of this tribal council is "My question is HOW DARE YOU ANSWER MY QUESTION!" Cassandra says she doesn't "see the relevance in the question." Earl looks at Lisi like she's nuts. Lisi says she raised the issue of the shoes because she thinks Cassandra was in over her head, so how could she have made it 39 days? "Greed!" she says, all sarcastically revelatory. Lisi wants to know whether Cassandra would agree that "greed really fueled everything." Cassandra takes the wrong approach, insisting that she came to learn things about herself and whatnot, which...oh, Cassandra, don't do that. Ultimately, Lisi presses Cassandra to admit that yes, part of what caused her to go so far in the game was wanting to win. The money! She is a terrible money-wanting money-wanter! I hope Cassandra can live with herself.
And then, what is arguably the ugliest thing I've ever seen a juror do happens. Worse than Lex, worse than...worse than anybody, really. Because it's intended to humiliate, not based on the game, but based on things outside the game. Lisi looks at "Dreamz" and says, "I want to know how many zeroes are in a million." See what she's doing? This guy beat her, so she wants to put him up on national television and humiliate him for being uneducated. She wants everyone watching to laugh at him for not knowing how many zeroes are in a million. "Dreamz" says, "Six, enough to keep a person's life running, and enough to help a lot of people." And Lisi smirks with glee. Okay, this just got awesome, because Lisi clearly doesn't know how many zeroes are in a million, and she thinks he got it wrong. So she looks over at the jury, but she doesn't get any encouragement, and Alex has kind of a cautioning look on his face, so she just patronizingly says, "Good." Caught herself just in time. "Dreamz" is certainly smart enough to catch the snap here on what she's doing, so he asks her, "What, do you think I'm stupid? Let me ask you..." Lisi cuts him off, saying, "This is part of my game." Is it really, Lisi? Trying to take a formerly homeless kid and grind his face in the dirt over the fact that you suspected he didn't have as much school as you did? Really? That's your game? Your game is to reach back into somebody's unfortunate childhood to find a club to beat him with, just because he embarrassed you? You'll have to excuse me if I suspect that isn't your game; that's just you.
