You guys are so easily fooled.
I can't believe how many of you thought Jim was a sweetheart for helping Marcella out this week. Duhhh...did you not see the first part of the show when he said he was going to trounce on her this task with no problem whatsoever? Do you remember at the beginning of this series when he said that he wasn't here to make friends, but to use every underhanded trick in the book to make it to the end?
Don't you think it's ironic that he went from a major BIG MOUTH for the first few episodes and now is hanging back in the shadows more? That's because he could hardly keep shooting his mouth off after losing so many tasks without looking like an even bigger fool. That doesn't mean he isn't just as conniving and underhanded as he was at the start, he's just decided to lay low and control things in a more snakely manner.
He was using Marcella to help get rid of who he perceives is the greater threat to him....i.e. Amanda and Ryan, because he's really confident he can beat Marcella later on. His actions had absolutely nothing to do with friendship or kindness.
What fools these mortals be. :down
