I guess it was a foregone conclusion, but am I the only one that wanted to see it played out? Of course,
Did anyone ever think he wouldn’t? Would they have shown the whole family-man tear-jerker montage if it had gone the other way?
I was disappointed in Julie. A lot of the Waffle House Goodwill she had built up was tossed into the bin with tonight’s episode, a disturbing foreshadowing of which was shown last week. Does she really not realize how well she did in this show? And does she have any idea how petty and childish she came off in the finale? I have to wonder what the editors are trying to show us. They made her the heoric underdog all through the show, only to completely trash her image in the finale. Of course, there’s the old “can’t show what wasn’t there” reply to the complaint of manipulative editing of reality shows, but did she really spin 180° at the last minute? Color me confused.
Now Josh has been a buffoon from the start and didn’t fail to screw up in his usual manner, even to the point where Rock gave him a verbal bitch-slap when Ramsey questioned him at the end. But his edit was consistent from start to finish. And Jen’s pathetic “he liked meeeeeeeeeeee” confessional was really embarrasing to watch.
Hopefully, Rock will do well and stop referring to himself in the 3rd person. The right person won, I guess, but I don’t feel very good about it. Of course, I wouldn’t have felt good about any other outcome either, so there ya go.
