Big Brother 11: Saturday Afternoon
After the explosion this morning, times and details on the previous post, Natalie went up to tell Jessie about it, and they are currently plotting round 3 of the Saturday Rumble... omg. So early in the season for the 1st blow up?!
Feed 1 -
Russell, Natalie, Chima and Jessie
They're recounting the tale for Jessie... Jessie is most offended by Jeff going nuts on "an 18 year old girl," and planning how he's going to handle it. Another confrontation is forthcoming, but the mood inside right now is light at happy.
Russell: I was like, call me a bitch, call me whatever you want, but why you gotta hate on gay people?
Chima: He was like, when I saw you, I thought you were gonna be all (snap) "no you didn't". I was like, Why? Because I'm black?
Jeff's status in the house has nosedived in nothing flat.
BB is ready for the rumble to happen...
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go inside, and close the sliding class door.
12:40 to 1:15pm BBT
There's a lot of talking going on, mostly about the explosions this morning, but no new blow ups yet. Perhaps when BB re-opens the backyard? Hmmm..
In the meantime, Jeff's blood-pressure looks like it's come back down to normal.
Interesting to note: Jeff and Russell have been in separate corners, so to speak, since lockdown started.
Russell's in the bathroom, chatting with Laura. She just got out of the shower stall - shaving her legs. Russell just got in. Ahem! Camera Op... adjust feed 1 to Russel's shower stall, please.
Casey and Russell
PoV conversation. Casey is making a case for Lydia. Russell is checking in to see if Casey will vote as he wants, if he takes Lydia down.
Casey: She sucks. She's played in 3 comps. She sucks. I think that's your best bet. Yeah, I'll vote Braden out. I'll keep Chima.
Lydia enters the pool room to give Russell his promised massage.
Lydia tells Russell everything he already knows from his later night talk with Jessie & Natalie, and to her credit, there are no inconsistencies.
It's looking good for Lydia... Russell just told her, "If we're gonna do this, we have to be sly about it. We can't hang around too much, which sucks, cause I have more in common with you than any of these people."
Ronnie & Lydia
Ronnie says he's on the brink of tears. Lydia tells him to cry if he needs to... Lots of very low whispering...
Lydia: Later tonight, I'm gonna take you, me and Jordan up to HoH with Jessie and Natalie... I want you guys to hear some stuff, and it has to be all together. I don't want you to go home. I want good people who're gonna play. You play. Did Chima play? No. I want people who're gonna be here, be my ally and play the game! Not throw stuff.
Ronnie: Besides Russell, have you heard anyone say anything bad about me?
Lydia: No. Everyone knows that you're always super happy and you wanna be here...
They have a big hug...
2:35pm BBT Fishies.
Pool Room - cont'd
Casey enters briefly. While he's there, b.s. conversation. He leaves.
Ronnie: The stuff they're gonna say, is it shocking about me, or just shocking?
Lydia: Oh, no. it's nothing about you at all.
Lydia tells Ronnie how she was having a bad day once and said "Ronnie's voice is getting to me," and Chima must've heard and started sh*t."
Lydia: Just play it cool. Act mellow. have a good time. Don't tell anyone else that we're going up there... cuz then people are gonna be like, they're plotting, they're scheming!
Ronnie: That's why I wanted to come talk to you...
Lydia: If I hear something, Ronnie, I'm coming to tell you!
Ronnie: That's why I told you what I told you, because I think there might be a chance.. Chima's gonna sink her own ship.
Jessie & Natalie
**I think it's Natalie hidden under the covers there with Jessie - seems the most logical
Jessie: I talked to him and he agrees it's a good idea to put Braden up... Everybody knows. It's no surprise.
2:47pm BBT Fishies!
Jessie & Michelle
Michelle: Just to be clear.. Braden's the one going, right?
Natalie enters and asks if Michelle's ok with the new plan. She says she's completely fine.
Natalie: Cool. And we have the extra vote now, so there's no need even for a tie breaker.
Michelle out, Lydia in.
Jessie tells her that Russell has decided to take her down.
Natalie: This is hopefully a starting over for all of us.
Jessie: We're taking you off. That has to be the best feeling in the world.
Lydia: There's no guarantees...
Lydia tells them about her conversation with Ronnie and that he's concerned that if Russell used the PoV, he's going up in her place.
Lydia: He's paranoid all the time.
Natalie: So you're cool with who's goin up and all?
Lydia: I don't know who's going up.
Around the feeds, conversation is light at the moment. A few minutes ago, Ronnie was sharing his Jedi training with Jeff, Jordan and Braden. They were all quite impressed. Ronnie's been studying the house quite intently.
Jordan's been in bed for 2 days now... I'm getting the feeling yesterday was due to sadness about the potential of losing Lydia and today is about Jeff... your thoughts?
Chima, Laura, Kevin, Lydia
Laura's putting the theory out there that Ronnie is America's Player. Oh, Lordy. Chima's chiming in too...
Lockdown is over!!!
Casey, Kevin, Laura
They don't notice any real changes...
Casey, meet nicotine. Nicotine, Casey...
Kevin believes the crane has been removed.
Natalie, Chima, Ronnie
Natalie's telling Chima what's going down with the PoV.
Chima's not happy about it, but she's keeping her cool (as she has the entire time she's been on the block, btw) and just wants the guarantee that Lydia will vote to evict Braden.
Natalie coaches Chima to make sure she includes in her speech that she wants to be here...
Jessie & Natalie
Jessie seems quite smitten with Natalie... Unlike the others, he knows her real age. He mentions that 18 would have been a big stopper for him.
The eyes have it. You be the judge.
Kevin, Chima, Jordan, Lydia, Russell
Russell's face looks like he's about to blow again any moment.
Around him the chatter is light, happy and not game related...
Jessie's strutting around the backyard, shirtless.
And.. fishies, while Kevin talks about some rapper.
CUT TO: 5:08pm BBT
Feeds are back. Michelle and Jessie and sharing the double chaise in the backyard tanning and chatting. Giggling can be heard from the couch crew.
Russell & Chima
Chima's stirring it up to keep Lydia on the block and get her out, and it seems to be working with Russell...
