Thoughts on Chima's Rant
Immediately prior to the Have - Have Not Comp, Chima let forth another racist tirade against Russell, calling him a Muslim extremist terrorist, but he wasn't present for it. This is covered in the previous post. A few minutes after the words had left her mouth, and the feeling I'd personally been punched in the chest subsided, I began to understand where all the animosity is coming from...
Chima, and to a lesser extent Natalie and Lydia, have been doing everything they can to bait both Jeff and Russell into altercations they hope will result in the men being ejected from the game, since the end of the not so live show yesterday... Much to their chargrin, neither Jeff nor Russell is giving them the satisfaction of reciprocating with so much as a raised voice. Jeff and Russell are barely acknowledging them at all.
Chima and Natalie have stated that their intent is to get both Jeff & Russell disqualified from the game, and the harder they try, and the less the men respond, the worse the attacks become...
With Nominations also pending this afternoon or early evening, and Chima and Natalie most likely heading for the block, I can only imagine what will happen next.
Incidentally, Chima and Natalie have also promised that if they lose the comp, they will still take hot showers. Chima took it a step further, saying she would eat and eat and eat... until they were forced to give her a penalty nom.
On a happier note... Jeff, Jordan and Michele are all quite happy and getting along quite swimmingly... and while guarded in her actual trust of him, Michele and Russell have mended their fences.
Michele has also offered up her HoH room to Jeff and Jordan, should they want to spend a night alone together in privacy.
