Anyway, trying to answer the criticisms that have been made of her all season, Jen goes on to rattle off a list of her "accomplishments," and it turns out to be one of those situations where you're really better off not naming your accomplishments if they don't sound very good. She claims that she came up with the name for the "Metamorphor" in the first task. Which...is fine, but takes about three seconds. She then claims that she "helped create the ice cream flavor" -- that would be the ice cream flavor that we saw Maria propose, so what do you suppose a weaselly phrase like "helped create" means, exactly? Because she could have been a taster, for all the meaning that has. She brings up the QVC task -- pretty much her one true accomplishment, in which it's hard to dispute she did well. But again, that's presentation, and I don't think there's anyone who disputes that Jen is a very smooth public speaker, or even that she's infinitely better at that particular function than Kelly is. If I were picking a PR representative, I'd totally go with Jen, assuming she didn't have to manage anyone. Anyway, she also says that she washed and groomed dogs, which would be better if Kelly hadn't done exactly the same thing in exactly the same task, making it hard to make that a "pro" for yourself. Jen calls all of these things "quiet leadership." Huh. I think I'll have to call bullshit on the act of yelling "Metamorphor!" being referred to as "quiet leadership." Hip to public opinion of her and the one thing for which she earned most of her early goodwill, Jen brings up "defending a scapegoat on [her] team," and again, I was certainly glad she did that, at least somewhat, although my sense is that that was about how much she couldn't stand Elizabeth more than it was about trying to help Stacie. She refers to her own "strong integrity" in doing "these things," so I guess she's giving herself integrity points for the Red Velvet. Interesting.
