Monday Morning in the Big Brother 11 House
BB: Good Morning, Houseguests. It's time to get up for the day.
Wakey Wakey HGs!! It's time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!! You've got a Veto Ceremony to do today! Bring on da noise! Bring on da funk! ;) We'll be here watching and updating!
Around the house...
Jordan and Michele are showering
Lydia and Chima are in the kitchen...
Lydia's preparing quite a breakfast.
She was up prepping it at 5am BBT...
BB: Jeff, Jessie, Natalie, Ronnie, Russell. Good morning, House guests. It's time to get up for the day.
Lydia: They're like, nope!
8:17am BBT - Jeff joins the living as he makes his way into the kitchen for coffee...
8:18am BBT Jordan's out of the shower, sitting in a towel on the bathroom couch, putting make up on. Cam one's getting arty, and he/she gives us a nice shot of Jordan via the bathroom mirror.
As both nominees, including Michele as the PoV winner are first to the showers and getting ready, it looks very much like BB has already given them the get camera ready order - while we had fishies.
Michele's still in the shower.
Jordan's still working on her make up.
Lydia's gorgeous breakfast preparations continue...
Chima's just poured herself something to drink and heads into the bathroom to tell Jordan where her clothes are...
Ronnie passes through the dining area on his way to the bathroom.
8:29am - We have fishies while BB wakes everyone else... In the meantime, look who booked himself a sweet print job! None other than Paker from BB9! He's on the front page of BestBuy.com for Wii Sports Resort as part of this promotion! New Release! Wii Sports Resort, Plus Free Shipping. Valid 7/26-8/1
Lydia's still in the kitchen... She just remarked to someone, "I get to dress in your clothes, right? Ok. Just makin' sure." So.. the plan to dress as eachother today is still on.
Ronnie walks in and asks if the downstairs bathroom is usable. SHe says she doesn't know.
BB Makes another wake up call to Jessie, Natalie and Russell
Russel's up. Michele's blow drying her hair. Russell says the toilet's all stopped up.
Ronnie runs up to the HoH room, knocks, walks in, asks Jessie if he can use his toilet. Hessie doesn't wake up, so Ronnie leaves, still having to go. He makes it half way down the stairs, then comes back in - a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
Ronnie uses the HoH bathroom, then returns to the main bathroom to wash his hands.
Ronnie, Chima, Natalie
Ronnie tells them he just went up to HoH to use the bathroom, and Jessies' still sleeping. Natalie says she's going up there to pee and "wake his ass up."
Ronnie: Well, we've only got like 25 minutes before the meeting's actually supposed to happen.
Chima: Supposedly being the key word.
***You've got 25 minutes to get camera ready, so they can start calling you in for DR sessions in the clothing you'll be wearing for the Veto Ceremony... C'mon kids. Get with the program. ;)
Alone for a few minutes, Ronnie studies the memory wall very intently.
He continues studying as Russell comes into the kitchen to help himself to the breakfast that Lydia has prepared.
Russell heads to the Storage Room, asking Ronnie if he needs anything from in there. Ronnie declines.
In this picture, you can see the changes that have been made to the memory wall. There may be more, but Kevin's and Casey's pictures are the most noticeable...
Russell & Ronnie
Ronnie got up and did a lap around, Hmming all the while. He rejoins Russell at the table, asking if they're still straight. Russell confirms and says, "Gonna be fun today," referring to the upcoming PoV Ceremony.
Chima, Jessie, then Michele
They're dressing like each other. I'm not sure who Jessie's supposed to be, perhaps Natalie? I'm guessing because of the hat.
He whispers to Chima in the bathroom, "It's driving her crazy that I'm wearing this." No doubt referring to Lydia.
Michele asks Chima's approval on her outfit and get it' Chima says she's not in the mood to do the dress-up herself.
Chima's fixing her hair... Michele re-enters...
Michele: Man that feast looks good.
Michele: All the food Lydia made. Mmmm...
Chima: Don't look at it, Michele. Stay away...
Jordan comes in to do an outfit check with Chima.
Jordan: Does this look cute?
Chima: You look cute!
Jordan: Thanks. Just checkin'
Chima: No no. You never look bad.
Backyard - Couch
Russell, Natalie, Michele
Natalie: Aren't you supposed to stay inside, Michele? Cuz you have the Veto?
Michele: I don't know. They didn't say anything.
Natalie: I think you're supposed to stay inside so you can rehearse you speech.
Ronnie's sitting by himself on the platform where the pool table is...
Casey comes outside. He doesn't join the group on the couch.. Michele hasn't budged. She takes her orders from BB, not Natalie. Chima joins the group on the couch.
Natalie: We're missing one.
Kevin's in the hammock.
Talk of why the lockdown continues... Natalie reiterates that it must be for the Veto Ceremony. Michele says they haven't called me in... and she figures out the most likely reason: "maybe it's for the toilet."
Jessie's chatting pleasantly with Lydia over by the weights bench. She's dressed like a boy today - in Kevin's clothes.. They're flirting..
BB: House guests, the lockdown is over. You are now free to move about the house (and poop).
Michele, Kevin & Lydia
Kevin and Lydia are doing their level best to get Michele on their side, approaching her from the angle of it being unjust that the Athletes are 4, and their using the rest of them as pawns in their game...
Kevin tells Michele he's just looking for a one week commitment from her to put up 2 athletes... Lydia and Kevin tell her their coming after the outcasts, populars and the brains, minus Ronnie, because he's one of them...
He tells her they are 5 strong, but wont mention the names. He and Lydia play to her upset at being put up as a Nominee without ever being given a speech.
Kevin: Them keeping Ronnie tells us they don't give a sh-t about anything but numbers... They don't care who makes it to jury. Fo rme personally, right now is good, because I'm not being targeted...
Lydia: I feel like I'm ok right now, but come next week, I'm srewed. But if I'm gonna go out, I'm gonna be kicking, screaming and fighting. I wanna make a damn power move. I feel like there's a group of people who think they're running everything... I don't think they gave you credit for winning.
Michele: No. Exactly. He said, we let you win. I'm like, oh, how did you do that?
Lydia: Exactly, I think we're all just way underestimated...
Kevin: We already talked to Jeff and Jordan, and I know you have some beef with Jeff, but if one of the 5 of us wins next week, we can change the course of the game... Even when the cliques break up, they're giving us bs that they're gonna vot eone of their people out, but that's bs. They're not even voting Ronnie out.
Kevin, Lydia and Michele - cont'd.
Michele says that her beef with Jeff isn't going to go away. Kevin urges her to think about it.. just for a one week thing, to make the power shift in the house. THen they leave her to get some rest.
Lydia & Kevin
Lydia: (whispers) We have to tell Jeff that whatever beef he has with her, to squash it.
They walk together to the sliding glass door, see that Casey's out there, and head for the Pool Room to lie down.
Kevin: It's like I'm afraid to go outside.
They climb into the full sized bed together...
Lydia: Jordan, in her sleep last night, rolls over and goes 'backdoor Ronnie,' in her sleep.
Kevin: Jeff n Jordan, last night were saying to me, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie, Ronnie...
Pool Room, cont'd.
F 3 & 4
They call her over to whisper that they talked to Michele and approached her about a one week deal.
They tell Jordan not to give Michele any real information, because she's still wavering between sides and she hasn't said which way she wants to go.
They bring up the numbers to Jordan, saying that because Jessie's out of the next HoH comp, they're numbers are actually stronger - 5 to 4 counting Michele.
They use the same speech they gave Michele, about being used as expendable pawns, and being over that.
Lydia: They don't think we're strong enough to win. Russell said to me, I don't care what happens this week, because I'm safe. I wanna put his ass up on the block so he knows what it's like to not feel safe.
Kevin: After you guys are gone, it's me n Lydia, cuz they don't tell us sh-t.
Jordan: They don't?
Lydia: Nope. Tey're all buddy buddy with Chima now. Last night, i was up there with Jessie, and Natalie came up going, "Me n Chima need to have a team meeting with Jessie now," and they booted me out of the room.
Kevin: It's all about numbers now.
Lydia: Exactly. I mean, come on. Do you really think I like Natalie and Russell?
Talk turns to Ronnie...
Lydia: Ronnie told me, if I'm here next week, and it's down to you n me, throw it to me, so I can put Russell up.
Jordan: Don't believe a word. He told me he'd never put me up, and he tried to backdoor me.
Kevin: You guys just act like normal.. til we win HoH.. then boom.
Talk turns to who would put up who in the event they don't win HoH. Lydia says Chima would put up her and Kevin. Jordan believes Ronnie would put up her and Jeff...
Kevin reiterates to just act normal... The conversation breaks up.
Jessie, Natalie & Chima
Jessie: It'll probably go like "I'm a winner, you're a loser, Casey, move your feet and take a seat."
Natalie starts in about Lydia. Jessie's not in the mood. He quashes it. natalie continues with Chima.
Natalie: What did that bitch want from me at 4 o'clock in the morning.
Chima: She wanted a kiss. You did moon her, and you shower her your...
Backyard - Couch
Jeff & Casey
Casey's telling Jeff how Jessie saw saying he didn't take the opportunity to talk to him when he should've. Casey said, he was sleeping! Jeff can relate..
Jeff: I so wish I could put them on the block.. I'd be like, Natalie, Jessie, you're going up. How come? Well remember that day you walked past me and didn't look at me?
Casey: Whatever dude, If I win, I go home to a hot wife...
Casey makes disparaging remarks about Ronnie's wife.
Jeff: If it's any consolation, if you go home, I'm right behind ya.
The two of them bash Lydia and Kevin for a couple minutes, then Casey reveals that he understands the crux of it...
Casey: They are playin'... They're here another week..
Jeff concedes the point. Casey says let's go inside... Jeff says he's gonna have another smoke.
***I wonder if Casey will leave some smokes for Jeff, if he goes.
Casey only goes in for a moment. He and Jeff continue talking... Jeff is strategizing about the weeks ahead.
Jeff: If I win HoH, everyone's gonna be on my nuts, dude. Nobody's gonna wanna leave before the jury house, so they'll be like, I'll do anything to stay.
Casey: What Jessie told me yesterday, well yeah, we had that agreement, but some things have come to light that have made me change that agreement.. SO people's word is sh-t.
Jeff: Well, yeah. People are gonna break their word for half a mill. With you gone, who else do I have to keep my word to? Jordan? I'll carry her as long as I can. But if I can find a way to get Jessie put up... I can' tdo it, so I have to find someone else to.. That's gonna take some work. Talk about sellin' something. That's the only way to rattle this place.
Casey: You gotta put up them 3.
Jeff: Dude, I gotta hope the HoH is an endurance and not (some random stupid questions).
Casey: Well, they might do endurance because this is a big week... I'll be watchin' somewhere with a cold one, and bangin' my hot wife. These people don't deserve to see pictures of my kid. You got any people down there?
Talk turns to chatter... Casey invites Jeff to come visit... Tells him he'll give him his truck. He can stay with him or get a hotel, up to him.
They come back to game, briefly, then on to bikini models...
Jeff & Michele
Michele's feeling Jeff out to see if she's game for the 5 way, one week alliance Lydia and Kevin proposed earlier... Jeff does a good sales job for himself. Let's see if it works.
After 15 minutes, Casey comes out and joins the two of them... He's extra bitter right now, and driving home the point of Ronnie being the evil in the house, and him, inexplicably, being the one about to go up and out.
Casey: I can understand everyone being quiet now, but I'm curious to see what happens after I'm the one in the chair...
***Keep hope alive, Casey.
Gotta take a little break... I'll be back by 12:30pm BBT with a new top post.
