I've got to say, while Christmas still sucks ( the person, not the holiday. That I still like !) , Day pretty much screwed that up herself. She's playing the game & she wants to be good at it, but she really isn't. Now, Christmas probably would have never changed the noms anyway, but her conversation with Day just cemented in her mind why she shouldn't do it.
Ian-- yeah, he probably was feeling bad, I doubt if he's faking. But, man, he sure is sliding by this season ! He's a former winner of the game and he's not really aligned with anyone. Everyone is underestimating him, imo. Which is a good way to get far-- then he has to start winning comps. Wait, he did that the last time ! Wow. Nicole is sliding too, but she has people on her side. I hope she's out before Final 4.
