I'm glad someone else saw the Taj "decision" as a no-brainer. They should have taken a page out of Amazon when Matt won a visit from his mom and forfeited that visit so everyone else could spend time with their loved ones instead. As it turned out they still made special arrangements for Matt to spend time with his mom anyway.
If Taj was forced to make that same decision she would have not been able to handle it. My guess is she would have turned to the other five and with pleading eyes ask what do I do? Since the others freely handled over their money to her (an idiotic decision that I will elaborate on later) there's no doubt the other five would have insisted she visit her husband and don't give a second thought about them.
OK...about the money situation. If no one is going to bid against her why in the world do you hand your money over to a millionaire if she could just walk up to Jeff, drop her $20 down on the table, and get the video from home??? Wait to see if someone starts bidding against her THEN hand over your money to her if she needs it. I was surprised when Taj knew no one would bid against her she didn't just return all the money that was given to her and put down her $20 for the video.
About Debbie...I thought about the a Deb/Taj/Erinn alliance for a couple seconds but didn't think that would work. Granted she'd have no problem pulling Erinn in; heck, she'd jump at any opportunity to advance herself without any initiation. But why would Taj go along with it? Taj is pretty solid with Steve and JT. Why walk away from one F3 to go into another F3 AND have Steve and JT possibly on the Jury ticked off at you for flipping? Regardless of any attempt Debbie made, her goose was pretty much cooked. I thought it was cooked in the prior episode as a matter of fact.
