What have I done today to make me feel proud? I made lentil soup! So healthy! I had about four giant slices of Italian bread with it, though. But not EVERYTHING I've done today is supposed to make me feel proud.
And before I really get started, I have to extend a giant thank you to all of you who have written to me with moth control and prevention techniques! Much like the Losers are determined to continue on the path to wellness once they leave campus and go home, I am determined to beat the bastard moths when I leave my parents' house and head back to my infested apartment. If none of your wonderful techniques work, perhaps I can see if Jillian will come and scream at them for me.
We begin as the contestants return from last week's vote. With Rebecca voted off, Amanda has lost her only ally in the house. Allen notes that the elimination was intense, and we flash back to Rudy being kind of a dick and ranting about trust while Rebecca told him that he was ridiculous. Liz says that a lot of people will say that Rebecca's ouster has to do with her being a real competitor, but in actuality she just fell victim to the oldster alliance. Amanda knows that if she falls below the yellow line she's gone. She's reconceptualizing herself as an individual competitor now that her teammate Rebecca is gone, and would like the opportunity to come full circle from being voted into the house on last year's finale to being a finalist this year. Rudy says that America made a good choice in Amanda. Well thanks, but I'm sure the other one would have been fine, too. The contestants only have one more week on campus. I would say that time has flown, but it's actually felt like an eternity. Danny says he's going to take advantage of the last week on campus because he has a lot of work ahead.
Bob and Jillian meet up with the contestants and aren't surprised that Rebecca is gone. Bob says that she could have won the whole thing. Rudy talks about his vote for Rebecca, and mentions the bullshit fabricated trust issues. Jillian wants him to admit that he voted Rebecca off because she was the biggest threat. Rudy maintains his story, which was nonsensical in the first place. Jillian doesn't think it's a bad decision, but just wants him to be honest about it. Rudy still won't admit it, and says he can win with or without Rebecca there. Bob tells us that there's only going to be one winner, and the contestants have to remember that they're there to get their lives back.
