Oh, Jen, you broke our heart. Not because you were eliminated from Top Chef: All-Stars on just the second episode, but because of the way you went out: bitter, rude, disrespectful. Now, Jen, don’t get us wrong, we love your feistiness, your spunk, your proclivity for profanity. There’s very little we enjoy more than a tough broad. And we were delighted that you returned for All-Stars with a renewed determination and confidence, after showing some mental weakness during your first go ’round in Vegas. But Padma Lakshmi is in a Carl’s Jr. commercial, so when you’re in front of the judge’s table you better show her some respect. Be a bitch, just be a classy bitch. Like Jackie O. Or Bea Arthur.
Allllllllllright, alright, the penultimate episode of Survivor: Nicaragua is nearly here, so let’s quickly look back at last week’s show.
First off, Benry proved to us, once and for all, that he’s a douche. Completely against our better judgement, we’ve been developing an affinity for Benry over the last few weeks, mostly because he was aligned with our current favorite Fabio, as well as with Dan, who’s won us over despite being physically incapacitated. Also, compared to the sorry group of players left in stock – Sash, Jane, Holly, Chase – Benry looked great by comparison. The lesser of several evils. However, by so easily agreeing to sell out Fabio for his own advancement (in a move that would have only gotten him one, maybe two Tribal Councils further), Benry proved who he really is. A club promoter. Yes, he was honest about that from the start, so shame on us for even giving him the benefit of the doubt. But, to reiterate: DOUCHE.
Not terribly surprising. You could totally feel the tension between him and Scarlett Johansson here:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Maybe he’ll reconcile with Alanis. That always seemed like a better match to us. They can talk about being Canadian. And about being on Nickelodeon shows as young teenagers. And other topics reflective of a higher level of conversation in general, we’d imagine.
Good luck, Canucks!
UPDATE: US Weekly reports that Reynolds has been “seeking comfort” with an ex. Now who could that be???
