Anyone else disgusted by the continued hypocrisy and trash talk of the Weavers, not to mention the actual throwing of trash?! I thought so. I’ll take Jonathan and Victoria any time over these four deluded, pathetic people.
That said, let’s get down to the clips. We have two sets (Week 7 and Week 8, according to the CBS website) for the two hours of show we got this week.
Go, Wally!: Wally is racing at the track and the girls are explaining to the Godlewski sisters that they almost always call him “Wally” and not “Dad.” Ms. Validation is sort of shocked by this. They all start cheering for Wally though. I hear a few “Go, Dad”s thrown in, but I’m not sure if it’s a Pink Lady being facetious or one of the girls. No matter, it’s amusing when one of the daughters says she wants Wally to stay out there in the sun and get a tan. Heh.
Looking At Butts: The Linz siblings talk about how they’d like to see first place one of these times. They are currently in a good position, so they hope a Pit Stop is coming up soon. One of the boys mentions they are sick of staring at butts. Another starts to make a comment, which I cannot discern, but Megan gets a look of horror on her face as the clip ends. Why do I think the boys constantly evoke that look on Megan’s face? They’re such guys!
LOSE ALREADY: The dysfunctional family paints wagon wheels in this clip. Rolly is stuck with Linda and the two nasty girls are together. Linda snaps at the girls that she and Rolly are going as fast as they can. Then Linda starts telling Rolly what to do to hurry him up. He snaps to it. The daughter with the streaky hair scowls at the camera, then returns to her painting. The other daughter mentions that she hated art class. It is paying off now though, they observe. Sadly, they work well together, so I think they’re going all the way, and it makes me ANGRY. Do you hear me, Phil? ANGRY! You must come appease me. Raise your eyebrow and rip open that shirt or something. Seriously.
LOSE ALREADY, YOU PSYCHOS: You all must go watch this clip. It’s called “Cornered” on the website, and it is of poor D.J. Paolo (wow, never thought I’d use “poor” in that sense with D.J.’s name) being trapped by the Spawn of Satan team.
D.J. presses against the wall, Weavers surrounding him, all chattering about why the Paolos yielded the Weavers. D.J. rightly defends their game plan by explaining they were going to do the first fast forward and the first yield that came about, as it is good game play. Duh. Someone whines “but we were friends.” D.J. rightly retorts that it is a game and not personal. Linda and crew are having none of it however. Repeat that about three or four times, because the Weavers are just that slow. They also whine that because they were friends, they could have been in the final three together.
Once again, D.J. reiterates that yielding isn’t personal. They ask again and he blatantly says they were trying to knock a team out. All four of the Weavers gasp in shock and dissolve into “oh my Gods” and so on. Rolly’s mouth hangs open. Honestly, these morons don’t have a clue about how to play a game. Hypocrital twits. One whines that they told D.J. about a flight. He says they had three hours, so they would have found the flight on their own. Linda turns on a sickeningly fake persuading voice and says “D.J., let’s be friends” to which he replies they can be friendly, but it’s a game. Skunk-haired girl snottily says that they can’t be friends, then, in disbelief.
Linda then whines that they’re friends with everyone else. Poor D.J. tries to nicely explain this one to them. He states that all the other teams know it’s a game. [in other words, psycho bitch, the other teams wouldn’t box him in over a yield]. He also nicely tries to mention that they don’t come out and try to talk like the other teams do. The Weavers again express shock and awe. Linda says something about getting ignored. Then says his mom did something that bugged her, so D.J. rightly reminds Linda that he is his own person, and what his mom does or does not do isn’t him.
In a stunning display of idiocy, as if we hadn’t seen enough already, the Weavers claim the Paolos should have walked over during the yield and explained the strategy. D.J. apparently tried to after the leg, from what he says here, but Linda is having none of it. Apparently, they were supposed to delay themselves DURING the leg and explain it to the Weavers. Yeah, right. GO AWAY.
D.J. decides he’s had enough and leaves. God, that poor guy. Phil, give him $100K just for putting up with that.
We Want Them To Go Away Too: The Paolos chat about the Weavers. This almost seems like it happens after the above, but D.J. is wearing something different, so I have no idea. D.J. tells us that Florida is two-faced, rude and will stab you in the back. He says they are inconsiderate and rude ten times over, even more so than he is. But, he claims (and I believe him), the Weavers are way ruder, not to mention hypocritical. Per D.J., and per what we’ve seen, they’re rude to others, but if you are the slightest bit rude back, they walk away whining about how rude you were. NICE. Plus they are embarrassing out in public, he states, worse than him, which he admits is pretty bad. Heh. His level of frustration peaks and he says if they fell down, he wouldn’t help them. He’s had it with them. He despises them.1 2 3 Next-->
