Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple of days. I’ve been concentrating on recovering from the C-section and frankly haven’t even thought about going online. It’ll probably be another two weeks before I’m able to take the stairs to the computer room. (Editor’s note: I can see about moving the old computer down to our room temporarily.)
I didn’t watch Tuesday’s eppy of AI2, but based on what I did see, I knew Josh would be going home. I thought Trenyce, Clay and Kimberly were great. From the clips of Rooo-ben, I thought he was just okay, but that America would never kick him out — especially since it was so obvious that Josh would finally be let go.
For that reason, I had picked Josh, Trenyce and Kimberly for the bottom three. Then they announced they were only pulling the bottom two, and I presumed Kimberly would be safe.
So imagine my shock (and everyone elses) when the almight Rooo-ben was tagged instead of Josh. They look on Simon’s face was priceless. And Josh knew he caught a break.
My mom made a good comment though. They didn’t announce how many people voted. Last week it was over 21 million. If they didn’t announce numbers, I can only think that they had less than 21 million, which they wouldn’t want to advertise.
Anyway, my mom’s thought was this: we don’t know the spread of the votes. If 20 million voted, Trenyce may have only gotten 3 million. Rooo-ben may have gotten 3.1 million. What if Josh is only save by .01 votes? He gets 3.11 million votes and voila — he’s safe. Maybe Rooo-ben’s people presumed he was safe and didn’t vote? Either way, that’s likely why Josh was spared.
So Trenyce goes home (which is fine — she would have gone in the next two weeks anyway.) She was incredibly gracious about it, which is awesome, since she was so obviously gyped.
So that’s it. Rooo-ben isn’t invincible. That’s good to know. Now I think Clay will win.
