Kelley. Talking. She says that coming there was the first time in her life she was ever alone, and she was afraid. She moans on that Keebler Tom took her under his wing and they kissed and she flipped out because Mark kept coming into her head (as opposed to Keebler Tom, who was busy coming on her head) and it felt wrong and she had to keep reminding herself that she was there to try to get fame...I mean, "to be single for a while." She continues on that her third selection was someone to whom she felt more attracted (poor Keebler) and with Ali, she felt that she'd known him for a long time and he treated her like a lady and lied that she was worth everything that she wants and she shouldn't feel less of a person, like she does with Mark. (Man, dudes will say some fucking crazy shit to get laid.) She cries more and more now about an amazing connection and they snuggled and kissed and held hands and she didn't sleep with him, "...but I let him treat me like a lady." (In other words, he went down on her.) She goes on that cunnilingus is extremely important to her and it's something she needs and, really crying now, she says she realized from "these people" that she has dreams and needs and wants and that she doesn't want to put them aside anymore. She says she can't stay in Tampa because there is so much more in this world for her. Crying. Crying. "I have to get out of this relationship," she says. Heeeeee! Mark L. Walberg smirks. Mark throws a Kleenex in her whore lap and gets up. HAAAAAA! Heee. Hoooooo. Hoooooo. Heeeeeeeee. He walks away. She cries. The Music Of The Show Finally Breaking Up A Couple plays as Kelley weeps us into commercials.
Shannon's turn. She slo-mos on out, already having scanned the island for John to try to get to him first, using a snorkel and night-vision goggles, I'm sure. Shannon gives Mark L. Walberg a fake hug and says that she's okay. She puts on her Scary Listening Face as Mark L. Walberg tools that he wanted a chance to talk to her. He goes on to remind her that they talked about control before, and that during a bonfire he told her, in front of all the girls, that he'd been thinking about her when he's not with her. Ew! Whoa. Mark L. Walberg loves Shannon! He blathers on that he always caught her trying to talk to John during poolside meetings. Continuing, he says that he can tell her this, and wanted to tell her alone, not to embarrass her in front of the other girls...Okay, here we go! "I know about the notes," he says. Shannon instantly loses her smile. Hee. He goes on that the notes never got to John, and that maybe Shannon wrote them to try to give herself solace and "bring bearing on what is." Whatever that means. Shannon says that she feels "vulnerable" and that, yes, it's a foreign feeling for her. Mark L. Walberg then opens up to us, without anyone ever asking, that he knows from his own life that vulnerability is a symptom of being scared to death. (Mark L. Walberg is constantly feeling alone and vulnerable and scared to death.) Shannon cries that she doesn't want to be alone. Mark L. Walberg tells Shannon that she doesn't have to be a rock, and she cries. Bleh. Shannon continues that she has a big support system at home, and she doesn't have that here. Mark L. Walberg asks if she's learned anything from that feeling. Shannon nods her head and says she's learned that it's okay and to draw strength from it and that she's not a weak person for feeling this. Uh, yes she is. And crazy. Shannon says she's ready for John.
