Frogsrule: He's An Idiot: Alicia holds court on how "she" (bwah!) figured out that Tarzan was trying to play her against Kim and vice versa. He wasn't going to fool her! She saw through him!
This cracked me up. I wonder if Alicia is self-aware enough to cringe when she sees some of her talking heads? Yeah, probably not.
Frogsrule: How Is That Fair? You knew this was coming. After saying that she didn't think she would get chosen for this reward because she (Alicia) has been on two back-to-back rewards, she then gripes. And. Gripes. And gripes some more about the fact that Kim got to go on three back-to-back rewards. Wait a minute Alicia, if Chelsea had picked you, YOU would have been the person who went on three back-to-back rewards, no?
Alicia *insists* that she's not angry that Chelsea took Kim. She's only angry (she says) because Chelsea took Kim after her pre-Sabrina-pick about choosing her because it was the fair thing to do.
In Alicia's defense (??!!! o_O !!!), the clip seems to indicate she has no problem with not being chosen, it's just the way Chelsea went about it that upset Alicia. Specifically, she felt it was unfair for Cat to be targeted for choosing the "wrong" people in her reward challenge but Chelsea did the exact same thing with impunity.
In fact, based on this clip and the other clip where Alicia admits to feeling like a "wicked stepsister" for targeting Cat -- especially after hearing her cry post-elimination -- I think Alicia feels guilty. Of course, she conveniently forgets SHE was the one who switched things up and targeted Cat. Or maybe that was more of Kim's magic that was just edited out?? I can totally picture Kim planting the idea in Alicia's head ("Can you believe how Cat DOMINATED that challenge? Wow!") and Alicia then deciding it was all her idea! LOL.
As you mentioned, Alicia also stated that she didn't expect to be taken since she's had two rewards but Chelsea said she was going to choose someone "fair." Sabrina was a "fair" choice according to Alicia, but Kim was not fair. I wonder if Chelsea had chosen Christina instead of Kim, whether that would have been "fair" in Alicia's book. However, who knows? Alicia seems to be holding a LOT of resentment towards Chelsea about Cat's blindside. Or maybe it's just jealousy because on some level she intuits that Chelsea and Kim are besties? (Although according to Alicia's talking heads, it's all her and Kim! LOL!) To quote someone upthread, I feel all kinds of dirty defending Alicia. Ick!
Sabrina is the biggest remaining threat to win and Kim needs to boot her before FTC.
fnftw: I agree that Sabrina is a threat, though when you judge two people who have both been strategic and worked together in the game, you usually go with the stronger one, which is why I think Kim can take Sabrina in the final vote. However, when you judge two people on different criteria, one who's been strategic and the other a goat, and you happen to hate the smart strategic one, you might vote for the goat just to not vote for the player you hate.
I'm not sure it's a question of Kim "taking" Sabrina to the finals. Someone upthread mentioned that Sabrina admitted to being the leader of their tribe initially, then deliberately
taking a back seat so Kim could be the face of deception with the target on her back. I think it's equally possible she's been throwing challenges -- she went out waaaaaay too easily on this last one. First? Meh. I could be wrong but think we're going to see Sabrina turn up the heat in these final challenges and kick some serious ass. For that reason alone, perhaps it was a mistake to take Sabrina on the reward and give her the change to replenish her strength. Hopefully Kim is ready for that, and prevails (then votes Sabrina off). Because much as I like Sabrina, there's an extremely good chance she can sway the jury if she gets to the final three, and based on overall game play I'm pulling for Kim.
