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.
Lisi then accuses Earl of doing "a whole show for the jury" by shaking his head in surprise over what had happened when Yau Man was voted off. Earl explains that he was surprised at the entire turn of events involving the broken deal. Lisi keeps telling him that he could have voted off Cassandra, and Earl is like, "But I didn't." Because he never has said, now or ever, that he had no choice but to vote out Yau Man, so her whole thing she's trying to do is just bullshit. Not that this keeps her from snorting contemptuously at Earl's answer. Earl tells her that voting off Yau Man was the "smart choice." "It's amazing how 'smart' becomes interchanged with lying and manipulating," Lisi says. You know, you could be shut out in a burn-each-other-with-a curling-iron contest and not be as fucking sore of a loser as Lisi.
Stacy is up next. She tells Earl that the difference she sees between him and "Dreamz" is that Earl is more sophisticated. After the game, he'll land on his feet. What about "Dreamz"? Should she maybe give her vote to "Dreamz" because he needs the money more? She wants him to tell her whether she should "base [her] vote on a need basis or not." Earl tells her that a million dollars would change any of their lives. He says that he doesn't feel bad because he has a job, or because he has a car. He says he's worked hard for the things he has -- he had setbacks and hardships growing up as well. He mentions being raised by a single mom around drugs and violence, and he doesn't think you can base it on need when "we all need it." Well, seriously. Nobody's going to be like, "Eh, I don't really need any money," unless they're independently wealthy, which none of these people are. Stacy smiles and sits down. She just wanted him to take that off her mind, and I think he did.
