New feelings have emerged three days after the tragedy that occurred on Survivor this past week. Considering I hold grudges like it’s my job this is insane…
This is really long like I’m sorry I had to put it somewhere and I know I’ve talked about this so much but this is it I swear!!
Seeing those adorable videos of Shirin and Hali and Joe and Jenn singing in the car made me realize that hey, if /Joe/ doesn’t even hold it against Jenn then lol why should I?
That being said, I’m still pissed. I mean, Joe got voted off and that fucking sucks. Jenn doesn’t want to be there because she has “nothing out here but despair” and she definitely doesn’t deserve to be there over Joe. But now that I’ve had time to think about it, I can understand not wanting to take that last step and /officially/ quit the game. I still think it would have been a much more admirable thing to do than to let your friend who loves the game as much as he does get the boot, but I can understand.
Jenn did everything she could to be voted off (granted this is why she’s already quit in my mind and why it was so hard to hear her say she wouldn’t walk because “that’s quitting”). She tried so hard to win immunity for Joe, she begged for votes, she made her case to go home. She didn’t go the extra mile and quit for her friend but it’s not her obligation to quit so someone else can stay no matter how much he deserves to be there or how rude I thought it was not to.
I still think she should have fallen on her sword. I still think it was disgusting and really inconsiderate of her to say “this is so exciting” during tribal council right before the last vote was read. But I’ve made peace with the fact that, even though she’s miserable out there, she still wasn’t willing to quit flat out…despite the fact that it would have been a miracle to have her quit the first time Joe didn’t have immunity (man that would’ve been fabulous.)
So, yeah. It is still just awful to me that she didn’t save him with a final sacrifice and I’m heartbroken that Joe left and didn’t make it to his family visit and didn’t continue to dominate the game. But hey, that’s Survivor.
