Jerri and Bryant meet–over beef jerky and rice.
In a restaurant this morning, with food (rice and beef jerky–seriously) arriving during the interview, Bryant finally got to talk to Jerri. He challenged her a little more than Jane did, but it was basically an uneventful few minutes. Bryant was super-nice (“You’re way too smart…”), and Jerri basically said the same things she’s been saying on every show about her personality and interactions with Kel and Keith. She also responded to rumors: Playboy? “I’m willing to negotiate.” Dating Jeff Probst? “Nothing true about that rumor.”
