Friday Morning in the Big Brother 11 House
As planned last night, Kevin has woken up in time to make sure he gets what could be his last hot shower for the week, pending the outcome of today's Have/Have Not Comp.
Whoever works Perv Cam seems to not be very interested in Kevin, because all we're getting is a longshot.
At the moment, Kev's the only HG awake, and BB hasn't sounded the alarm quite yet.
It's worthwhile to mention that at 7:30am, Kevin & Lydia had both woken up to use the bathroom, and they had a quick talk about making sure to get upstairs to speak to Chima today... It was Kevin doing the urging - lest they get put up simply for not doing it, and Lydia saying, "Chima knows I wanna talk to her."
BB: Good Morning, Houseguests. It's time to get up for the day.
BRB on all Feeds.
Wakey wakey, houseguests!! It's time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!! You've got a Have/Have Not Comp and Nominations today! Hurry on upstairs and start kissing some tush... if you think it'll help.
Jeff, Lydia, Jordan, Kevin and Michele
Michele's showering. Jordan's flossing. Jeff's brushing his teeth.
Michele: Ya know what we're gonna do this morning? We're gonna rock a Have/Have Not competition.
Jordan: My boobs hurt this morning. Do your boobs ever hurt.
Michele: Mine hurt all the time... especially when I sleep on my stomach.
Jordan: Oh, i can't sleep on my stomach anymore.. feels like I'm sleeping on floats when I do.
9:52amMichele finishes in the shower... Natalie comes in to go to the bathroom... Lydia hops into the shower.. Michele and Lydia have a little whisper.
Jordan: I smell like some B-O!
She's next up for the shower.
Chima & Natalie
Natalie climbs back under the covers of the HoH bed, where she slept, and gives Chima the 411 on everyone downstairs... Chima wonders if she'll have to host the Comp.
BB does the fresh batteries announcement, followed by a more stern "It's time to get up for the day!"
Michele & Lydia
Lydia's still in the shower stall... Michele's dressed for tanning, just in case the comp involves getting wet or staying outside in the heat forever... Jordan and Jeff are in the kitchen area, and Jordan's talking with Michele who's still in the bathroom.
We get the BRB screen for a moment and return to...
Jordan: They're not wasting any time today.
***Sounds like BB wants them all camera ready quickly.
Lydia's out of the shower and calls out to Jordan that it's her turn. Jordan says ok, but she appears a lot more interested in continuing to eat her breakfast now...
Michele and Jordan
Jordan's in the shower now, and suddenly perv cam comes to life, be it ever so briefly. Who knew? ;p
Lydia & Kevin
Lydia's preparing breakfast...
Kevin's washing dishes...
Carolyn's fighting the overwhelming urge to strangle her neighbor's noisy workers.
Kevin: It's so weird that the competition's so early! I guess it's because they have to do nominations too.
Lydia, Jordan and ____
Lydia brings her food to the bathroom couch to eat.
Natalie & Kevin
Natalie informs Kevin that Jessie feels much better about him, now that they've talked.
Natalie: Wah Wah Wah Wah Wah...
Kevin: Mmm.. Really? That's good. They said we should just wear normal clothes (for the comp).
Nat leaves. Kevin sits at the counter to have some breakfast. Michele passes through...
Kevin: How'd you sleep?
Michele: Surprisingly good.
Kevin: Now that Ronnie's gone...
Michele heads up the circular staircase to HoH...
10:28am BBT - BRB on all 4
Feeds are back, briefly, and we see Jessie fixing himself something to eat and Lydia getting make up on.. then back to the BRB...
***The BRB screen is definitely my away screen of choice.. Love that we get to see the control room monitors, with live action still on them!
Feeds are back...
Cam 3 - They just showed a very quick look at the back yard where the comp is being set up!!! I'm on 1, so I couldn't cap it, but I saw it on one of the smaller screens along the bottom.
On Cam 1, We're in the bathroom with Lydia and Kevin... Someone's in the shower, and I'm not positive, but I think it might be Jeff...
Could just be wishful thinking on my part...
Damn, I see feet.. girly.. cam pans up... it's Natalie.
Here's the Comp Sneak Peek!!! Thank you Jamison & Marci!!
Cam 3 & 4
Jessie & Michele
Jessie's feeding. Michele's eating her bagel. Chatter about phone bills and how some people take the easy way out and screw people... His grandmother was taken advantage of by someone regarding long distance calls, years ago. Lots of polite mm hmms from Michele.
Michele's getting annoyed that her clothes don't fit anymore...
Jessie: Yeah, pretty soon, you'll be able to fit into like Natalie and Chima's clothes.
Russell has joined Michele & Jessie.
***I can't believe I hadn't noticed him missing til he appeared.
Russell had a bad dream about being late for a comp and losing points because of it...
It's good to be the wizard...
Psst!! The Ross Mathews interview with Ronnie is up! Here's the link. Enjoy! :)
Lydia & Kevin
Lydia: Who do you want to go home this week?
Kevin: Well, obviously I think Russell. Russell's trying very hard to stay this week...
Lydia: I wonder if Chima realizes it...
Kevin: My concern is he'll do the same thing as Ronnie.. oh, look how funny I am.. look how nice I am...
Lydia: Well, he only has a couple days... You're closer to her... Please talk to her.
Kevin: Well, when Russell and Jessie were HoH, I sucked it up and went to them... I said, look, I know we have nothing in common, but let's just move past that...
Lydia: Maybe it's a competition to win to choose!
Michele & Chima
Chima: I'm going over in my head what to do... Do you think if I put Russell up I'll have the votes.
Michele: Everyone's all worried...
Chima: Really? Abou tme or the mystery power?
Michele: Both... I think you've always felt a little more safe because of your alliances, but the rest of the house.. I mean, it's up to you, obviously, if I'm not on the nomination block I can vote, and I wanna protect you in this game... And if I'm not, I will vote how you want me to vote. And if Jessie and Natalie are on your side, they should too.
Chima: I don't know.
Michele: It's such a rough decision... Do you wanna break up duos?
Chima: Jeff and Jordan are the least of my concerns. My main concern is Russell. DO I put him up and try to get him out? My fear is that if I put him up and he takes himself off, then he'll come after me.. My thing with him is just that he's causing problems in the house... The problems we've had are all Russell related... I need to talk to Lydia too... They had their tiff too.. but since then, they've been like this (close).
11:17am BBT - Natalie knocks and enters...
Chima: I'm discussing with Michele my possibhle plans to put Russell up. Do you think he thinks he's going up?
Natalie: He thinks there's a chance.. What he told me yesterday was that you and he had a conversation... "kind of like a relationship talk, and we made up.. but I got gypped on the make up sex."
Chima: I don't know what to do with him... Lydia and I discussed this in the very beginning of the game.. Girls to the end, and somehow it became like my mantra to everyone else..
Natalie: Lydia's up there with him in his bed right now, by the way.
Chima: Well then it looks like I have my nominations..
Natalie: And she lectured me about talking to him the other day, and I was like F you, I'll talk to whoever I want.. I guess I'm a hypocrite a little bit with that with Jessie...
Chima: (laughs) A little bit...
Natalie: Supposably (sic) it was supposed to be Brains and Athletes, and the 1st chance you had to ruin that, you did it (getting rid of Ronnie). Up until yesterday, ROnnie being here was good for you...
Michele: Ronnie.. I don't know how much you saw of how much he was trying to undermine me, almost form the beginning.. It never made any sense to me... and I gave him many, many strikes.. Anyhow.. Enough with the Ronnie thing
Chima: If I leave you off the block, can you promise me 100% that next week you will leave both myself and Natalie off the block.
Michele: Yes. I can promise you both that.
Chima: Here's my thing.. I really do want a woman to win. I feel like I can say that to both of you and it'll go no further... With Lydia...
Michele: Do you know what she was doing last night? She was cuddling up with Jeff.
Chima: With Jeff?!
***It's in the flashback - and so was michele..
Chima: I'm seriously considering her and Russell, but I'd prefer if that stay in this room.
Michele: It will... Jordan's really nervous you're putting her up.
Chima: I must say though, I don't like the fact that Jeff and Jordan aren't making the effort to even talk to me.
Michele: I don't know what that's about... He did that the 1st week too.
Chima: That's right... That is his MO.
Natalie: I have a question.. Yesterday, you said to Julie, the house is divided, what did you mean by that?
Michele: The votes..
Chima: Ok.. this is what's gonna happen if I put Lydia and Russell up. Automatically, I'm the bitch who's jealous of them..
Natalie: Know what you can say about that? Tell her, "I got put up the 1st week for saying I wanna go home. You've said it several times now..."
Michele: I think we've all said it by this point..
Chima considers it...
Michele: The problem is.. Russell's a really strong PoV player. He could easily take himself off. Who do you put in his place to insre Lydia goes home?
Chima: I don't know.. Jordan may have to be Super Pawn again...
Natalie: He's only won one Veto...
Chima: I don't know.. He's a bully...
Michele: Arrogant man.
Natalie: When it comes down to it, are you gonna vote the way she wants...
Chima: We've already spoken about that...
Chima: Russell will try to get in your head...
Michele: I can guarantee you my vote.. no matter which one you want out, Russell or Lydia. All Russell really has is that intimidation factor, and you've already seen how bad it can get. Any further and he'd get thrown out of the house.
Natalie: I've never trusted Russell... ever.
Michele: He's a frikkin lone wolf. I don't think he's on anyone's side.
Chima: You do know he told Ronnie that he regretted his decision and that he woulda put you up...
They agree he's threatened by women.
Michele: I think we can agree getting him out of the house would benefit you, me, Natalie...
They recall that Russell was an angel until as soon as the PoV was done...
Michele: Natalie, my hesitance towards anyone was all about Ronnie... Now that he's gone, it's a new game. The lines divided was just about the vote.
Talk turns to Jessie... Natalie says she's loyal to him, and if he was on the block next to anyone but Chima, he'd have her vote.
Natalie's being very open to Michele right now. I'm curious to hear her words once Michele is no longer present.
11:39am BBT - Natalie leaves the room.
Chima: I am choosing, besides all evidence to the contrary, to trust you. When I say evidence, I'm referring to Russell.
Talk turns to Russell's calling Michele out...
Chima: In the course of my discussion with him last night, there were too many inconsistencies.. And I've told him things in confidence and he repeats them.
Michele: He's not helping you. He's not helping me. I'd rather help you.
Chima: Yeah.. I don't trust him.. and it sucks, because I really thought he was a good friend... I don't trust him...
Chima: I never told him I wasn't putting him up... and he thinks it was a relationship talk? I did think he was cute.. We did have a lot of playful banter.. definitely some flirtation... but no feelings there.
Michele: It's like me, when I say something flirty..
Chima: Exactly.. and it went back and forth... But if you just tell a man, you have a nice shirt on, he thinks you want him.
Chima tells Michele that's it. She's putting Russell up this week. She also confirms to Michele that there is no backdoor plan with her name on it. It's a straightforward nomination. She wants him up and out, and she's willing to take her chances on him not winning the PoV.
Brief BRB break, then we return to Chima and Michele talking about Braden and Laura, and saying it was dumb to send both of them home, as they were non-threats... especially Braden.
Chima: I liked him. yeah, he said what he said, but he was so fun loving and different... The threat is Russell. He has been since day one... and I think I'm the one who has to do it. If I wind up in the jury house, and I have to vot efor him, I'll kill myself.
Michele: I think that's what he's hoping, is that people will take him to the final 2, thinking he can't win it.
Chima: What I want is 2 women in the final 2, and 2 women who've played the game right.
Michele compliments Chima on her eloquence.
Michele: What people ask when you get there is often, what was your biggest strategic move, and this week is yours... Getting Russell out.
They talk about how charming he'll be with the ladies... and how even they are susceptible.. till they smack themselves out of it.
Talk circles back to Lydia's behavior... Michele's egging it on... mmm...
***it's a game. it's a game. it's a game.
This conversation is ongoing... and it's very good. I recommend strongly that you check it out on flashback, beginning at 11:14am BBT on Camera 1.
***It's 11:59am BBT... Morning is Ov-ah! I'm going to open a new top post in 15 minutes... Gotta stretch the fingers and get off the tush for a few!
