- WHAT I TATTOOED ON MY MASTERCANVAS IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

THAT'S VERY ALLURING,BUT IF YOU LOOK CLOSER,

MATTI, YOU'RE UP NEXT.

MATTI, TELL US ABOUT YOUR PIECE.

BUT THIS IS MY TATTOO, AND...

[cheers and applause]

FOR ME, THIS IS MYINTERPRETATION OF WHAT I FEEL--

THE STRUGGLE THAT ALL OF USHAVE GOING THROUGH--

A DAILY BASIS, YOU KNOW.

I TRIED TO USE A WHOLE LOTOF SYMBOLISM, YOU KNOW,

TO DEPICT AN ANGEL

RISING FROM THE FLAMESOF TEMPTATION.

AND, YOU KNOW,IT JUST SAYS SO MUCH ABOUT ME

IN THIS TATTOO.

- COOL, MAN, WELL DONE.- THANK YOU.

- SCOTT, YOU'RE UP NEXT, MAN.

TELL US ABOUT THIS, SCOTT.

- BEING THAT MY TATTOOIS ON A WOMAN,

I WANTED TO GIVE HER SOMETHINGTHAT SHE COULD RELATE TO:

LOVE AND HEARTACHE.

- THIS IS THE FIRST TIMEYOU AND CHRIS

ARE IN THE SAME ROOM TOGETHER.

- THAT'S WHY I'M NERVOUS.- ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY?

- HONEST...

YEAH, YOU KNOW,AFTER WATCHING THE SEASON,

IT WAS EASY FOR MEWHILE I WAS IN THE HOUSE

TO BE CONVINCED THAT I WASUNDER A PARANOID DELUSION,

BUT HONESTLY,WATCHING THE SEASON,

I DON'T FEEL THAT WAY.

I FEEL LIKE I SUFFERED A BIT OF,YOU KNOW,

BIAS TREATMENT FROM YOU--AT YOUR HAND.

- REALLY?CHRIS, ANY RESPONSE TO THAT?

- WELL, HERE'S THE THING.

I THINK WE MAKE ITTO THIS POINT

WHERE WE'RE AT TODAY

AND YOU HAVE A WHOLE SEGMENTDEDICATED TO YOURSELF.

FROM THE WAY IT'S GONE,YOU'VE MADE AN ENTIRE SEASON

AND NOW YOU'RE BACKFOR A SECOND SEASON,

AND IT WAS ALL THROUGH USPUSHING, AND WE DID PUSH.

[man yells]

NO, BUT LISTEN.

WE DID PUSH TO GET YOU

TO THE FINAL FOURIN THE FIRST SEASON.

AND YOU RESPONDED TO CRITIQUE,

AND THAT HARD TIME,YOU CAME BACK.

SO WE WERE ALWAYS LIKE,"HEY, MAN.

"THIS IS A GUY WHO WANTS IT

"AND EVERY TIMEWE GIVE HIM [bleep],

HE COMES BACK STRONGER."

SO THE MATH WAS THERE.THE FORMULA WAS THERE.

WE JUST KEPT GOING.

YOU KNOW, IT JUST DIDN'TWORK OUT THIS TIME.

- I FELT THAT THE BIASWAS NO MORE EVIDENT

THAN WHEN YOU CALLED ME UP.

YOU TOLD ME I COULD HAVEJUSTIFIABLY GONE HOME.

AND I DIDN'T SEE MY NAMECOME UP IN THE DELIBERATION.

AND I DON'T THINK I COULD HAVEJUSTIFIABLY GONE HOME THAT DAY.

BUT NO ONE ELSEHAD TO GO TO SLEEP THAT NIGHT

THINKING THAT A JUDGEWAS OUT TO GET HIM.

AND I BELIEVE IT PUT A LITTLEBIT OF UNDUE PRESSURE ON ME.

- THIS IS THE GAME, THOUGH.

- [cheers]

- THIS IS THE GAME, BROTHER,AND YOU KNOW IT.

AND YOU CAME BACK, RIGHT?

YOU CAME BACK A SECOND TIME,

AND BABY WENT THROUGHTHE SAME THING, RIGHT?

TATU BABY CAME BACKFOR THE SECOND TIME

AND JUST TOOK A BEATING.

IT'S TOUGH TO COME BACK,

BUT YOU DID, AND YOU KNEWTHE WAY IT WENT,

AND I THINK IT WAS REALLYTRYING TO GET YOU

TO BE BETTER THAN WHAT YOU WEREAND TO BEAT OUT PEOPLE

THAT WEREN'T AS GOOD AS YOU.

WE DIDN'T WANT TO SEE YOUGO HOME BEFORE THAT.

- LET ME PASS THIS TO ASHLEYFOR A MOMENT.

ASHLEY, KYLE SNAPPED AT YOUFOR CRACKING UNDER THE PRESSURE

AND THEN DIDTHE EXACT SAME THING.

DO YOU FEEL REDEEMED?

- KARMA'S A BITCH. I MEAN...

- WOW.

- KYLE, I GOT TO SAY, MAN.

YOU SAID IT YOURSELF.

IF YOU COULD KEEP YOUR HEADOUT OF YOUR OWN ASS,

YOU WOULD HAVE WON,AND YOU DIDN'T DO IT.

- IT'S POSSIBLE.

YOU KNOW, IT FELT LIKE YOU GUYS

YOU GUYS GIVE SOME PEOPLE WHAT

SEEMED TO BE PREFERENTIALTREATMENT.

AND OTHERS, YOU KNOW--

- I WOULD LOVE TO DO AN HOURON THIS.

I REALLY WOULD.

I GOT TO WRAP IT UP.

UNFORTUNATELY WE GOT TOWRAP THIS UP.

THANKS FOR BEING HERE, KYLE.

AND PLEASE HAVE A SEATWITH THE GUYS.

GOOD TO SEE YOU, MAN.

[cheers and applause]

WELCOME BACK, GUYS.GOOD TO SEE YOU ALL.

[cheers and applause]

LET'S START OUTWITH A TWEET, SHALL WE?

THIS IS FROM HANNAH,AND IT'S FOR HALO.

"I'M EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED,IN ABSOLUTE SHOCK,

THAT HALO IS NOTIN THE FINAL THREE."

- HALO!- HALO!

- [laughs]- I GOT TO TELL YOU.

I WAS A LITTLE BIT TOO.

ARE YOU SURPRISEDYOU'RE NOT UP THERE?

- YEAH, MAN,I MEAN, EVERYTHING I DID

IN THE COMPETITIONWAS TO WIN.

AND I WANTED TO DO THE BESTI COULD.

ALL THE MOVES I MADEWERE TO WIN.

SO, BUT, AT THE END OF THE DAY,IT'S NOT MY DECISION.

THE JUDGES MADE THEIR DECISION, SO...

- DUDE, COME ON.

YOU THOUGHT YOU SHOULDHAVE BEEN UP THERE

IN THE TOP THREE.

YOU KNOW YOU DID.

YOU CAME IN NICE,

YOU PLAYED THE GAME NICE,AND IT BACKFIRED ON YOU.

- LOOK, DUDE.

- YOU'RE GOOD, HALO.DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT.

- LOOK, I DIDN'T DO ANYTHINGMANIPULATIVE OR NOTHING.

I DIDN'T TEAM UPWITH ANYBODY.

I DIDN'T TALK ABOUT ANYONEBEHIND THEIR BACK.

WHEN I TOOK YOU TO THE BOTTOM,I TOLD YOU TO YOUR FACE.

WHEN I TOLD SCOTT I WAS GONNAGIVE HIM A SKULL,

IT'S TO HIS FACE.

THAT'S HOW I PLAYED THE GAME.

YOU CAN BE A NICE GUYAND STILL PLAY THE GAME.

- NICE GUYDIDN'T GET YOU NOWHERE, DUDE.

- FAIR ENOUGH.FAIR ENOUGH.

NICE JOB, GUYS.

- WHATEVER.

- ANOTHER HOT TOPIC THIS SEASONWAS "PLAYING THE GAME."

BRANDON TWEETED:

"EVERYONE NEEDS TO STOPCOMPLAINING

AND PLAY THE GAME LIKE SCOTT."

MELISSA?

DO YOU HAVEANY THOUGHTS ON THAT?

- WELL, SCOTT WAS DEFINITELYVERY CUTTHROAT

WHERE I FEEL LIKE SAUSAGE PLAYEDWITH A BIT MORE INTEGRITY.

PERSONALLY I DON'T THINKYOU SHOULD HAVE TO

THROW PEOPLE UNDER THE BUSTO WIN.

- SCOTT.

HOW DO YOU RESPOND TO THAT,BUDDY?

- THE REASON I PLAYED THE GAMETHE WAY I DID

IS BECAUSE I WAS SICK AND TIRED

OF EVERYONE TRYING TODISCREDIT ME EVERY TIME I WON.

AND I DIDN'T SEEYOU COMPLAINING

ABOUT MY CUTTHROAT STRATEGY

WHEN I HELPED YOU BEAT JAYIN FACEOFF.

- JAY, ANYTHING?

- YEAH, I'D LIKETO COMMENT ON THAT.

HE HAD TO DO THAT.

THAT'S THE ONLY WAYTO GET ME OUT.

HE KNOWS IF I WAS STANDING UPTHERE ON THE STAGE

WITH HIM RIGHT NOW,

YOU WOULD BE CALLING MY NAMEAS THE WINNER,

BUT INSTEAD HE HAD TO TEAM UPWITH TWO OTHER PEOPLE,

TAKE A CHEAP SHOT TO GET ME OUT.

'CAUSE OTHERWISE, HE KNOWS,NO REFERENCE,

TATTOO FOR TATTOO,I WOULD BEAT HIM EVERY TIME.

AND THAT'S WHY HE DIDWHAT HE DID.

- WOW.

MAYBE SOME DAY WE'LLGET A CHANCE TO SEE THAT, JAY.
