What he didn’t know was that Heidik was planning for several rounds to have him as his final opponent. This was in part due to three tendencies: being lazy, being captivated by the behinds of other females (in particular Heidik’s wife), and making a series of off-color comments that endeared him to Penny Ramsey but not to others.
Still, Jordan prepared himself well for the finale by planting his supporter Ramsey on the jury, ready to cast a final vote for him. This paid off when was able to answer her jury question without any lapses, while Heidik fumbled.

After graduation, Clay began courses at South Plains College. When he was 20 years old, he married his childhood sweetheart and they moved to Odessa, Texas.
