Noura's still crazy.
Elaine's still awesome.
I have a newfound respect for Jamal and Jack, and a newfound respect for the editors for featuring that moment in the episode.
I really like how these votes are never set in stone. It’s the perfect element of surprise this season needed.
Those Vokais got knocked off their high horses pretty hard.
So I just finished watching the episode (I'm scoring this week's fantasy league as of typing so...), and Aaron is just an annoying tryhard! Elaine presented him what could 100% save the old Lairo from extinction, yet there he was still thinking about voting her out. He can't think of the future if they're at a numbers stalemate. They have to be in a great position first before getting there. He almost lost that chance to gain numbers because of his itchiness for a big move, and an unnecessary one at that!
About Jack and Jamal: It's nice they're bringing forth social consciousness to the forefront without making me cringe (Remember Varner outing Zeke, Phillip vs Steve (aka Rice Wars)?. That level of humanity is something the series showed less and less over the years in favor of idol hunts and BIGMOVEZ.
I lost a lot of respect for Lauren for saying Elaine "is not smart to have an idol." I giggled that after Elaine owned her, she had the audacity to look vexed. You don't underestimate anyone, EVER.
Likely to Win
Very Small Chance
Noura is knocking my head off with the thought of taking about Jamal and Jack
I knew Rob and Sandra would like Elaine
How did the **** did Elaine get the vote block
Nice blindside,but I wish it wasn't Jason
I'm super glad that Elaine is still here, even though I lost the third member of my draft. Also, Jason's diss at Aaron is AWESOME. Even though Jason is now out of the game, him warning Vokai about Aaron can be key to his downfall.
I found the Jamal and Jack moment kind of pointless, Jack didn't even bring up the race card, Jamal brought it up himself.
The Jamal and Jack moment was not pointless, especially in a time in our society where people often refuse to see anyone else's point of view. It was very educational about social dynamics between two people with different lived experiences and negotiating those experiences in a way so that they can still continue their friendship with a new shared understanding.
I assume you're a straight white guy to not see the point, Tubbzywubbzy.
I find it weird that NuVokai didn't even suspect Elaine taking the advantage when she took a considerable amount of time not helping out at the challenge.
I feel like when you're in a challenge often times you're so focused on the task at hand. This challenge in particular with everyone looking down (as opposed to a puzzle or something) gave Elaine a lot of time, but it was still a risky situation because once the cage moves on you're not heading back.
I got permission to share this with you all, it's some further insight into the Jack and Jamal scene. Please enjoy reading!
