fredj January 23, 2015 Share January 23, 2015 I could see her not wanting CT to know while they were filming this season. Because she clearly wanted this to be her chance to go out there and kick some ass and have fun before going back into treatment. If CT knew, he wouldn't have been able to focus on their performance as a team, and she wouldn't have been able to have the lighthearted fun moments with him that she obviously enjoyed. If Johnny knew not only about her cancer being back, but also why she didn't want anyone else to know, I could see him respecting her wishes and just going out that night and acting like everything was normal, for her sake. On another note, and I feel bad for thinking this, but the edit we've gotten of Knight so far, I can't help thinking "if this is what they've chosen to show us, given the hindsight that he died before the season started airing, what kind of ass must he have been?" I mean, he's just so awful to Jemmye. I don't like her much, but I feel bad for her. She obviously loved the guy at some point and still cared about him, despite their issues. And this show is going to pretty much represent some of her last memories of him. It has to be rough to watch him being such a shit, both to her face and in his talking heads. Also, watching all of the performances from each team, I think that there's a certain advantage in an Exes season to being paired with someone you hooked up with (as opposed to having a real relationship that eventually blew up). Johnny/Nany, Wes/Theresa, and Jordan/Sarah are doing better in part because they're all good competitors, but also, in part, because they're not dealing with the kind of baggage that teams like Johnny/Averey and Knight/Jemmye are dealing with. Like that little exchange between Jonna and Zach, where he said he was confident they'd do well, and she immediately thought he was being sarcastic and dissing her. It has to be hard to perform as a team when you instinctively distrust your partner's motives or just plain old don't want to deal with them. CT and Diem were kind of an exception to that, but, they've also had the benefit of a lot of time having passed between their break up and being paired as exes, and they've clearly gotten to a point where they don't focus on the bad parts of their relationship and breakup and just trust and love each other. Most of these other former couples are clearly not there yet. A lot of cast members said that the only thing jemmye and knight did the entire challenge was fight, that they never got along not even once, even jemmye admit it before knight died. In all I think they are giving the best clean edit to knight, and they are avoiding to show him being more disrespectful to jemmye. If they really don't have a knight/jemmye cool moment, or even knight being a good guy, without showing him drinking, i don't think they have much material to work with. i feel thats the main reason on why they are barely showing him this time around. I think none of the couples that date on real life are interested on at least get along to win the money, they guys seemed annoyed with the girls, specially zach towards jonna, he was the one who dumped her yet seems that he has more hate towards her than jonna to him. 5 Link to comment
