[B]The interaction I thought was strange/interesting last week was when it was down to the final two (Miranda/Brandon) and Nancy O'Dell was asking them both how they felt...and Miranda said (paraphrasing) "I'm so sad. I really like Brandon." It came off as if she was assuming that he was going home! It seemed really arrogant & presumptuous. Perhaps she meant it differently, or perhaps they really DID know ahead of time what the outcome would be & were just trying to make it seem to us as though it was a surprise??? I couldn't tell for sure. I watched a rerun of the show this week & still came away unsure...Nancy O'Dell seemed a bit flustered by Miranda's reaction & Brandon was standing there mouthing "I'm going home"...while Nancy was saying "how do you know that?" and Brandon was pointing to his head & saying "Oh, I know."
I guess I felt that if Miranda WAS presuming it was her staying and Brandon going home, it was presuming alot...because the voting lately on this show has been quite irregular and unpredictable!!! :rolleyes:
By then, I knew who was going home too. They were calling them male - female - male - female. They did it the previous week too. I got the impression that Brandon and Miranda had figured that out the same way I did. I was really freaking out last week with only Buddy and Brandi left and they had started out with Miranda -- think they may have learned from their predictability though and fooled me (pleasantly).
