I'm kind of hoping that whichever group takes her to the final 3, because no one on the jury would vote for her, she reveals that she's been wishy-washy and dim on purpose so that she gets to the finals and then comes up with a good speech. Because it would be a good strategy. I'm actually shocked girlfriend is still in it. She was supposed to be out about 21 days ago, but she has hung on to the bitter end.
She was a target of sorts from the get-go, being lumped with the "older women" by the Kim-Sabrian-Chelsea-Alicia(!)-Kat group. And Alicia objected to her from the beginning, accusing her of things Christina never did, simply putting her Alicia-spin on things.
Christina has swallowed a lot
of abuse and humiliation and remained civil and self-controlled throughout. I don't think it's stupidity or naivite at all. She is empathic (concerned about Colton, when he certainly didn't deserve it from her), and she pays attention. I don't think she has any illusions at all about how she is regarded. When she was walking with Tarzan and he said something about Alicia regarding her as a friend - a very faint reaction twitched on her face. (I'd have loved
to see a confessional from her after that
Professionally, she is a career counselor
- which means she has to listen to others very careful and not
reveal her personal reactions to things.
She's been called a cock-roach to her face, she see the whole post-merge tribe dump on her, and all she has said is that yes, it hurts to be on the receiving end of that kind of disregard. But
... she doesn't go around making vendettas of it, with the result that she's still there
and people still talk to her, and she is a pawn in their plans
, meaning she has some
value in the game. Look at all the discussions that were going on -- if Chelsea isn't careful, she could be out, because Kim is not
set on a specific plan.
