Wednesday Morning in the Big Brother 11 House
9:07am BBT Wakey, Wakey Houseguests!! It's time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!
9:23am BBT Casey's first up. He's outside having a smoke, while Jessie and Lydia are sleeping together in the Spa Room.
BB: The bedroom lights must remain on during the day...
Jeff's lovely self is on feed 3, in the kitchen, preparing an omelet for breakfast...
Casey & Jeff
They're talking about someone's racial epithets, homophobic comments and general bad behavior.
Casey: And to chase Michele around all day, tellin' her, "Your dumb, Your dumb.. No one's gonna listen to you.." He just went too far.
***I have no idea who he's talking about.
BB calls out all the HGs still in bed by name, telling them to get up. Casey keeps singing... and BB's making a 2nd try with the sleepy house guests... and I'm checking out today's daily deals on ebay. WWSS? ;p
Bathroom - Russell, Michele, Kevin
Backyard - Jeff's on a lounge chair, thinking. Casey's smoking on the couch. They're already talking game... Jeff's pointing out how Jessie's behavior with regard to Ronnie is troubling him. Casey agrees. Talk turns to Michele, and Jeff says he thinks she's another Ronnie, in terms of wandering between the sides and sharing information.
Casey: Well if anyone tells you stuff, you can always assume they're telling other people too.
Talk turns to the next nominees...
Jeff: I'd like to see 2 big guns up there. Can you imagine Jessie? He panics. Did you see him up there last season? Panic! I'm not saying I'd put him up. I just want everyone to see he's human.. just to level the playing field.
Casey: I think were he to go up, he would have the support to stay, and gather votes against you.
Jeff: Like I say, I'm not gonna put him up. I'd just like to see it.
Casey: Maybe a month from now..
Game talk continues. They affirm neither will put the other up. Jeff's growly this morning, and what starts off sounding like friendly dogs having a go at each other for fun, descends into ruffled feathers.
Casey believes he'll have fall out because of his leadership role last night, just like he had fall-out last week for voting to keep Braden. He'd like Jeff to acknowledge that he went out on a limb for Team Jeff, Laura, Jordan...
Casey: Stop bustin' my balls.
Jeff: I'm not bustin' your balls. I'm talkin'.
Casey: Maybe it's your delivery... Have some f'in coffee.
10:07am BBT - calm tones return.
Casey: I think that Natalie/Lydia thing is gonna come to a head too... Whoooo... And Jessie and Russell.. Russell's getting to a point where he's had about enough of playing second fiddle.
Jeff: oh yeah.
Casey: I f'in see it. You don't gotta be a f'in psychologist to f'in see it.
Michele's there, in her bikini, lotioning up. Jeff enters to brush his teeth for the 2nd time today.
Casey's on the elliptical, alone in the backyard, for the moment...
Jeff returns to the backyard, has a seat on the couch, and game talk between he and Casey resumes... Then they move on to exercise plans for the day. Casey thinks it's a good idea to take tomorrow off, so they're not sore or weakened.
Jeff & Casey
Casey's on the elliptical. Jeff's lifting weights.
They're still talking. Casey's beginning to have 2nd thoughts about asking Chima and Michele to throw it, because it's totally unfair to them, and somebody might still put them up.
Casey: I'd rather let them control their own destiny.
Still, Casey's hoping someone else brings it up over the course of the day. He'll be happily relinquishing the leadership role.
Michele comes out. Casey greets her g'mornin' and the game talk ends. Michele applies some more suntan lotion.
Jeff: Maybe when we get on top of the totem pole, we can sleep in a little bit.
Casey: (breathless on the elliptical) Possibly.
Jeff: ♫ pass de duchie 'po de left hand side...
Jeff's taking a quick break from lifting weight to water the garden.
Michele's crossing the yard in her bikini. Sufficiently lathered up in sun protection, she lies down on the chaise...
Casey's still on the elliptical.
Michele goes back inside, and Casey & Jeff resume their discussion, whilst still working out. Jeff gets on the same page with Casey, in that they shouldn't be the ones to bring it up, but it's really not fair of them to ask Michele and Chima to throw the HoH Comp and risk possibly getting put up and out.
***Casey's very good at this. I didn't actually see him talking to Jessie about it, but he's ever so subtly protecting Ronnie with this stance.
Jeff & Michele
Jeff goes inside for a drink...
Michele: I think we should talk.
Jeff: What's up? Now?
They move to the BathRoom.
Michele brings up not throwing HoH. Jeff lets her know that's exactly what they were talking about outside.
Jeff: Ultimately the goal is to get Ronnie out.
Michele: I don't think so.
Jeff: WHy do you think that?
Michele: Because there are people in the house that it's to their advantage to work with him,
Jeff: Well, whoever that is, I don't trust. F-ck. So people want Ronnie now? People are talking saying they want him around still?
Michele: No.. there's not been words, but actions speak louder in the house...
Michele isn't naming names...
Jeff: Why would people want him to stay? To make up more lies about people?
Michele moves to the Living Room...
Jeff goes back outside to resume his workout and talk with Casey...
Jeff & Casey
Jeff tells Casey what Michele just said... and how she wants not to throw HoH... They're both fine with that and fine with her being the one to bring it up.
Casey: She came out here awful quiet. She's moody.
They have their days confused. They think today's cleaning day....
Jeff: (re Michele) Don't say that to me and them clam up. Who said that to you? 'Well no one. I'm just guessin'.' Don't bring me that.
Casey tells him that in his world, teaching, gossiping is looked at as a weakness, so he can appreciate Michele. They both gripe a bit about all the people still sleeping, 2 hours after BB told them to get up.
Casey: Wouldn't it be great, man, if Jordan won the sh-t?
***Anyone else noticing how fit Casey's getting? Really noticeable difference.
Casey: So are you gonna do the cutest message for Jordan today?
Jeff: Uh yeah...
Casey: Am I the only one who lies in bed and thinks about that sh-t?
Jeff: No, I've thought about it.. I just don't know what I'm gonna say yet.
Casey gripes about people leaving a mess, specifically Lydia... then in an attempt to make it go no further, he says he's just venting.
Jeff: No worries, bro. I'm a venter too.
Casey: Hey! That was smart to say let's not be the ones to bring it up...
Jeff: Yeah, she'll say something... I'll be like, yeah, that's a pretty good idea... That's why you're the brains.
Michele & Jeff
Michele suddenly has a pouty bug up her bum... out of nowhere... She's somehow suddenly convinced that she's going up and Jeff's voting her out.
Michele: I tried to talk to you inside, and you blew me off.
*** I'm baffled.
Jeff: I have to be very careful what I say... because i'm in the butt of everything here, because my word here has been so twisted by everyone.. What would make you assume that I would vote you out?
Michele: Numbers wise...
Jeff: Numbers? You're talkin' to the wrong guy about numbers. They told me each week I'd go up. I thought you were my friend in here.
Michele: I am.. but apparently friendships don't mean anything in this house.
Jeff: They do to me. I think there's a lot more people you can yell at about that in here.
Michele brings it back down to earth..
Michele: We're not not friends. We're not enemies. We're just having a conversation is all.
11:26am BBT - Casey returns to the backyard for a smoke. Michele is still there, so Jeff will not likely be sharing the above conversation with Casey until she goes away.... Jeff goes inside to the kitchen for a moment. He returns and makes small talk with Jeff.
Casey: You got any laundry? I'm gonna do some. You wanna put yours in there too?
The lights are on, and Ronnie's still quite asleep.. snoring.
Around the house...
Kevin's up and showering... Michele comes in and says good morning...
Jeff's turn on the elliptical.
Talking about Michele's very mini meltdown a few minutes ago.
Jeff: Dude.. She's.. I dunno.. 2% bipolar?
Jeff: I think everybody is in this house.
Casey: I've been nothin' but nice to her. When other people weren't, I've gone to bat for her.
Casey: She just walks by ya man.. doesn't make eye contact.
Jeff: Whatever man. She's goin' cuckoo.
Casey: Letter go.
He takes a drag... and reflects upon how nothing has changed since Ronnie's being exposed.
Casey: Funny thing is, ain't sh-t resetting... Instead of 6-4, it'll be 6-3.
Jeff: Seriously.. Who cares what your room looks like. Who cares about winning HoH.. as long as you're not on the block.
Jeff's getting more offended about Michele by the moment... saying we were offering her a free pass, but if she doesn't want it, fine, go home. Then back to Ronnie and whoever Michele was referring to...
Jeff: I mean, whoever doesn't want Ronnie out of here is suspicious to me, man.
Casey: They're suspicious and they need to see a psychiatrist.
