And it just gets better as Corinne is next. She starts with Susie and tells her that if she answers yes, she will get her vote. The question is, "If you win this money, will you use it to have your vocal chords removed?" Susie says no. She then tells Bob that she adores him and that she is worried that he is too one dimensional. She wants to see him NOT be the nice guy and she wants him to be nasty. He says that he did not like some of the things Sugar did in the game and specifically mentions the tribal with the rolling on the floor laughing at Randy playing the fake idol.
To Sugar, Corinne says, "You are an uneducated, unemployed leech on society and the only thing I would vote to give you is a handful of anti-depressants so that no one else has to be subjected to your constant crying anymore. And maybe if you got some then it would seem a little bit more sincere when you are crying about your dead father. (At this point, Sugar grins and flips her off.) You don't deserve the million." Ya know, I really kinda liked Corinne up til now. If you want to slam someone, go right ahead. I love a good tussle as much as the next guy. What I don't like is the bullshit cheap shot at the girl's father. That was low and uncalled for. Corinne, you're not Jerri Manthey. You'll never be Jerri Manthey. You're not gonna parlay this into a Playboy spread or any other reality gigs. You're a lame imitation of the original. And even Jerri had a line she wouldn't cross. You definitely crossed over from villain to obnoxious bitch.
And to calm things down, we hear from Marcus. He tells Susie that he's surprised that as a mother and a teacher that "it's a game" was all it would take for her to shuck off her greatest responsibility to be a positive role model. He starts with Sugar by assuming that her father really passed away. He says they have something in common as they both have lost someone and he wants to know if she will use any of the million to honor her family member. She says that she never even considered winning the million dollars, but that if she does, she will definitely put some to lung cancer, but also to children as that's the cause that's closest to her. To Bob, he wants to know of one example of him choosing to be responsible for his decisions. He says that he never had to do that as everyone else was making good decisions around him and it would have been dumb to go against them.
Next up is Randy. He starts with Susie and says that if someone had told him 39 days ago that she would be sitting there while he was standing where he was; he'd have thought they were crazy. He mentions that she's said a couple times that she felt sorry for him and he'd like her to elaborate on that. She says that with the way he responds to people, she could tell that he was not happy and was actually very sad. She wishes she knew a way to help him. With Sugar, Randy goes on about how she laughed at him when he was voted out. He asks why she would do that when he would be a jury vote. Why would she make him look like a jackass? She says that she didn't need to do that, he did it to himself and that he was always a jerk to everyone. He then asks Bob the same question - did he not want Randy's vote on the jury? Bob says it wasn't a joke and that it was a strategic move on his part. He says he didn't mean to embarrass Randy and that he was appalled and pissed about the way Sugar acted that night.
