Back in the Boardroom, Trump congratulates Kendra and Tana on being the final two. And...do you feel how weird that is? Kendra and Tana? It's like..."meh" doesn't even begin to describe it. It's Kendra. And Tana. There wasn't a person in the top five in the first season who wouldn't have kicked either one of their asses. Just...unsatisfying. Trump can't help pointing out that just as it happens (like magic!), they've wound up with one Book Smarts and one Street Smarts in the F2. He rattles off their credentials again, and tells them to head up to the suite, and then tomorrow morning, they'll get their big final tasks. They leave.
Kendra and Tana return to the L-Pal together. "Oh my Goooood!" Tana says, and they hug, even though they've kind of never been friends so it doesn't make any sense. Tana, on having made it to the end: "[Cock-a-doodle-doo.]" They find a bottle of chilled champagne and a photo album. As Kendra interviews, it was full of pictures of all their former teammates -- in other words, Burnett has chosen to incorporate an equivalent of the Walk of Dead Survivors into the final stages of this show, and that is not good news, because I hate the Walk of Dead Survivors. Or, as Wing calls it, "Snack Time." Anyway, they open up the photo album. They open it up first to a picture of everyone standing together before they'd even gotten to know each other. And then there is a picture of Todd, and Kendra says, "Ohhh," and Tana says, "Is that Todd?" Because she doesn't remember, because it was one hundred years ago, and Todd was eliminated before man walked upright. "Wow," Tana says, "I don't remember that much." HA! "He was a handsome man," she finally offers, because...what else can you say?
And then, Brian. First in a picture that makes him look like a low-level mob guy, and then during the motel task. "Oh my Goood, he carried that green book around and it didn't do any good!" Tana giggles. "Oh, Verna," they say next. "There she is with her suitcase!" Kendra exclaims. And indeed, there is a shot of poor, nutty Verna, strolling down the street dragging her rolly-case. Not perhaps the moment she'd most like to see remembered, but all right.
"Awwww," Kendra says as they look at a picture of Danny at the Nescafe task. "He was an absolutely disaster as a leader, but he was great on the emceeing," Kendra remarks. We see Kristen. "She's a pretty girl," Kendra says. "Boy, you know what?" Tana says. "You never see her smile, do you? Look at this. You never see a smile." My dislike for Kristen kind of clashes at that moment with my hatred of people who bitch at women for not smiling enough, because shut up. "Look at freakin' Michael!" Tana says. "Big ideas!" Kendra openly mocks. "Tara was so cute in her costume," Tana says as they look at a photo of Tara dressed up to paint in the graffiti task. "Cute in her costume"? Does Tana have anything substantive to say about anyone? Apparently not. And then, Audrey. "Ohhhhh," Kendra says. "She's a pretty girl," Kendra comments -- again. "She is," Tana agrees. We see Audrey in her clown suit. "Sorry I put you in that clown suit, Audrey," Tana says. Did Tana put her in it? Huh. "Look at the rock star!" Kendra says of obnoxious John. And then Erin is at Home Depot in her little apron. Kendra can only say, "Look at her, workin' it." Tana jumps in: "Was this when she had her...heels and her...?" "Yeah," Kendra says. Heh. And then Stephanie, whom they agree is "very photogenic." Tana does a little squee-ing over Angie. "She's a smiler," Kendra says approvingly, and shut up about smiling. God. "Oh, Chris," Kendra says, a little noncommittally. In case, you know, he punches her later. "He was a handsome kid I thought," Tana says flatly. "I liked his personality so much," Kendra says, much to my surprise.
