And then it's 9:55. Sami enters, probably thinking that this is actually NOT in her contract and she could be off shooting some scenes with Deidre Hall at this moment. She has attorney Jeff Friedman with her, and asks each contestant to come into the living room, one at a time, and explain his or her decision. As Jeff understands it, the contestants are deciding to leave because they don't want to be controlled by producers on the show or told what to do at certain times. He points out that when you come on a competitive reality show, this is what you have to expect. Jeremy tells Jeff that he knows that, but this is a matter of right and wrong. In his heart, he feels that this is wrong. What a bunch of bitches, for real. Jeff then is a total boss as he says, "In terms of, you know, you saying that it's unfair, you got the series rules before you started on the show. It did say that all the eliminated contestants would be invited back to participate in a challenge, and that whoever won that challenge would earn a spot in the finals. And so, because that was upfront for everybody... it seems unfair to us to say to everyone who's at home, who signed those series rules along with you before the show started, sorry. Then they're going to say it's unfair." Boom! Jeremy argues that this twist was not presented as a definite, and Jeff in turn gets out the contract and points out that indeed, it was presented as a definite. He reads it aloud, and Jeremy OBVIOUSLY feels like a dumb-ass. As he should!
We then see Jeff and Sami go through this same process with everyone else. Conda starts to say, "Had I known about the twist..." and Sami is like, "Duh, why do you think it's called a twist." Kim, who has the most giant bags under her eyes, whines that she's not afraid of competing against anybody, but wanted to compete against the people who deserve it. CONDA deserves it? Bitch, please. As Sami talks to Buddy and Mark, you can tell that she's kind of pissed. She points out that they've had access to opportunities that millions of people would like to have, and in exchange they have to fucking be on a reality TV show. And now they are not keeping their end of the bargain. Mark says he can't make the trade-off anymore, even though there are only two weeks left. We head to commercials, and I am left to reflect on the fact that I am siding with The Man, on a show that I think probably does horrible and unhealthy things to people. I was even super excited when a lawyer schooled people about the details of their contract! But, whatever. Stop whining! Maybe if you complain on principle about the fact that this show regularly puts you in a room full of donuts and encourages you to gorge yourself for modest gain, then okay. But this run-of-the-mill twist? How many times can I say, "Bitch, please."
