Someone is going to be voted out later. One of the contestants feels that she's going to be the one sent home and really sad about it. She tries to convince another contestant to vote out another contestant in order to save herself

A: Matt has a bright future. I'm sure he's going to become a great designer. This is all I have.(If I lose) I'm going to go home to my family, make minimum wage like I've always been.

My question is, is 'if I lose" implied in her speech? Is this style common?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Someone is going to be voted out later. One of the contestants feels that she's going to be the one sent home and really sad about it. She tries to convince another contestant to vote out another contestant in order to save herself

A: Matt has a bright future. I'm sure he's going to become a great designer. This is all I have.(If I lose) I'm going to go home to my family, make minimum wage like I've always been like I always have.

My question is, is 'if I lose" implied in her speech? It sems to be, yes. Usually the context, facial expressions, etc. will make this clear. You might also argue that she thinks that she is going to lose, rather than just that it is a possibility.

Is this style common? Yes.

Best wishes, Clive

Perhaps she thinks it's implied. Still, unclear speaking.
