Jesse finally steps in and says that all of this mess is getting to him, and he's tired of all the bickering about who to save. Marci jumps in to say that people haven't been bickering, they've been trying to prepare a plan. Jesse says that what people have been doing is making him feel guilty. That is absolutely true. He gets kind of heated as he says that if there's something he can do to keep Arthur there, then he'll do it, and if there's something he can do to keep someone else there who he thinks needs to be there more than him, he'll do it. However, he says that as far as he's concerned, not everybody there needs to be there more than him, regardless of what their age is. Just because he's an old man doesn't mean they can throw him out to pasture, he says, which is again totally right on. He's got issues that he has to deal with, and they're being overlooked, and he resents that.
Jesse then gets heated enough to curse, and Olivia leaves the room. She tells us that Jesse doesn't even know the beginnings of her problems, and to make judgments like that on other people is very sad. Who is making judgments on whom here? I am firmly team Jesse on this one. The moment that you insinuate to someone that they should sacrifice themselves on this show is the moment in which you should shut your piehole. Also, like ten minutes ago everyone wanted to vote Arthur off anyway, and now they're going on about their efforts to keep him there. I want season seven's Helen to come on and remind everyone how she wouldn't sacrifice herself for her daughter and then she won the whole fucking show, and bought herself an awesome and tasteful facelift that you couldn't even afford with the at-home prize. In retrospect, I commend Helen for having balls bigger than those on the football field. Deni seems to read Jesse's statement as saying that he deserves to be there more than the others, which I don't think is the point at all. Frankly, I think they're trying to tell him that he deserves to be there less than the younger people on the team, which is insulting. I also can't believe that the younger people are just totally like, "Yes, all of the old farts should throw the weigh in to ensure that we stay," like it's a great idea and they're just entitled to it. Eat some celery and then get your ass on the treadmill! Have a little faith in yourselves! All of these people are getting on my damn nerves, I'll have you know.
