Saturday Morning in the Big Brother 11 House

9:10am BBT Fishies, the Control Room BRB screen...

Wakey, Wakey House guests!! We know you had a very eventful evening, as covered in the previous 2 posts, but it's time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!!

Will there Be a PoV Comp Today??? Will there be a new nomination??? Will Michele get to nominate the HG of her choice?? Will they crown a new HoH?? We'll find out all this and more just as soon as the feeds come back on and the HGs fill us in on what they know!

***If you have no idea what I'm going on about, you really need to read the previous post: Chima's gone. All the aftermath details are there... And the post before that, Technobrains vs Widows for all the pre-2:30am drama that led up to Chima's departure.

9:33am BBT

BB: Michele, please come to the Diary Room.

We see Russell laying in bed in the Pool Room. He thinks the DR may have called her for something related to the PoV comp... Russell gets up and out of bed.

Jeff and Jordan remain in bed. We presume they are sleeping.

9:44am BBT
Russell comes back into the Pool Room and gets back under the covers.

As is his custom, he lies there with eyes wide open... Something has made him very happy... Dare we speculate? ;p


9:48am BBT

Lydia's up and working on her makeup... She stops for a moment to check out the bandage on her knee, then continues with her eyebrows... moves on to a bit of blush, etc...

9:54am BBT

BB: Russell, please go to the Diary Room.

9:57am BBT
Michele & Lydia

Michele: I am zonked. I don't operate well on so little sleep. Did you get any sleep?
Lydia: A little.. I'm emtionally drained.
Michele: At some point, I'd really like to talk with you. It doesn't have to be right now..
Lydia: I was shocked you didn't put me up. Dude, what you did was a huge power move..
Michele: It wasn't something I took pleasure in..
Lydia: I don't hate you... I think Chima just took it really badly..
Michele: I gave her the opportunity to play.
Lydia: I know.. It's not like you tried to backdoor her...

Michele brings up the missing items, and asks her if she was involved... Lydia says no.

Lydia: Natalie would slam drawers, but Chima was taking things, and she didn't tell us where she put anything.
Michele: Taking stuff is not cool.
Lydia: No, it's not. Like, we found Russell's rosary when we were packing her sh-t... We told her, if you leave, you f-ck us.. You f-ck both of us, because now we don't have your vot ein the jury house, and they're gonna give it to America... I'm just surprised they haven't greyed her picture out yet.

Talk turns to the responsibility of being HoH... then to the game in general.. and back to Chima...

In reference to the her nomination speech, Michele says, "I said nice things about her."

10:05am - cont'd

Michele: I think for me, I was like, did I cause that much mental stress?
Lydia: I think that, and the producers stripped her of her power.

Fishies at Lydia's mention of production.

Lydia: I told Chima, if she was really our friend, she would stay here and fight for the Veto.

10:09am BBT
Lydia: C'mon.. Let's get this dog n pony show on the road... I actually woke up and got dressed... They said this one has prizes and stuff...

According to info the HGs say they're getting from the DR, there will be a comp.

Lydia: If I get evicted, I'm not gonna make a big scene. What's the point of that? I'll get up, say goodbye to the people I like... and be out the door. They're gonna make Chima look like such an idiot. Like, does she think they're gonna edit her nicely?
Michele: I dunno..

10:27am BBT
BB: Jeff, please come to the Diary Room

10:32am BBT
Kevin's up and showering...
Michele's up in the HoH bathroom, brushing her teeth..

11am BBT - bit of a lull...

Watch Big Brother 11 24/7

I just really hope that Jessie does not come back into the house.

I couldn't stand the "wake" that the widows had when he left---so, I think I might end up throwing something at my TV or computer if I read that he returns to the house!!!

Natalie & Lydia would be unbearable to tolerate if he returns to the house:(

I think they should have an HOH comp today, then have an overnight veto and stay on track with the Big Brother in One Week plan on Thursday THEN surprise everyone by bringing one of the evicted houseguests back!!! That way the viewers still get the twists and turns they want, and they don't have to shorten the season!

Just after BBAD Chima hid I believe they were Jeff's hates, she wraped them up in a towel and put them in the havenots room in the little box.

To be Chima right now out in the public will not be good, I hear people who don't even watch BB don't like here, think I am going to be a look out here in Las Vegas call it Chima watch. (LoL)

Had to laugh, though, I pulled into the parking lot of my grocery store and in the Wendy's parking lot I noticed 11 Comcast cable/internet/phone vans parked for lunch!!!! LOL, this is their busy month with all the new installations!!!!

Yay I am really loving this new twist that Chima has left behind! I see it playing out in a few ways but it is my hope that team Jeff ( Jeff, Jordan and Michelle!)stays strong and in the house! I hope that this mess is going to force CBS to not have the double evic this week and have Michelle put up a new nom! AKA Lydia! Then Nat would head to her Jessie where by the way there are no cams in the bedrooms hee hee!OMG by the way I am at work when the really good things always happen so I am so so glad it happened when it did! Go Team Jeff! I love it!
Again thanks so much for the great site!

Good Morning Carolyn, Genie and fellow BB addicts

What a night. I'm glad Chima is gone but really confused on how she got to that point. After Jessie left it was all even. Yes your side has two people on the block but both her and Natalie were going to play for POV. She just gave up. I guess getting that attached to Jessie really screwed up their game.

This is individual contest, one person wins. Anyone who forgets that will lose. Dan and Memphis told Keesha she was coming to final three but then it didn't happen. It's sad if you really like someone but it's all part of the game.

Speaking of part of the game. Although I too was disgusted at the childish behavior that too was part of the game. Doing those things to throw Jeff and Russel off theirs is fine. I think it was when she went after the producers with throwing the mic in the hot tube and refusing to wear it is where she made her mistake. Do anything you want to other contestants within the rules and it's fine. Mess with the show itself and then you have trouble.

Even though I don't like what they are doing now I hope that Natalie and Lydia will get back to playing the game. They have just as good a chance as the rest and rolling over and quitting because your down is silly.

Last, don't trust Russel. Anyone.

Good Morning BB Lovers!

I am totally shocked at Chima and really sad for her. I can't even wrap my head around it. I am also surprised that she was not in trouble before she quit. I think it was really unfair that she wasn't penalized for her actions while Jeff was penalized for drinking gatorade. Although, maybe she was and we just don't know. I probably shouldn't speculate. I just wish she would have kept it in perspective that it was a game. On that note, I'd like to take this time to get on my soap box and plead for more tolerance for diversity. There have been a lot of ugly things said by various people in the house, not just Chima and I think we just need a little more love in the world! Have a great weekend everybody, enjoy the ride folks, it's going to be a crazy weekend!!

GOOOOD MORNING all you guys, I usually resist acknowledging all you wonderful commenters for fear of leaving someone out, but today is SUCH a wonderful day!!! I just wanna say HIGH-5's all around & thank goooodness the high-drama tension in the house has lifted.

Thanks-a-million to C & G for soldiering on through the early AM & documenting the post-Chima BS & the Technobrains show.

The POV could get interesting if Kevin wins it.

*sigh* I never thought such a silly situation that screws up the game for all (including the army of the behind-the-scenes staff) would make me so happy.

If they carry on with a double eviction as advertised on TV will that shorten their schedule?

Seems they may be more likely to amend it to only one eviction but still advertise double eviction and not show the TV only's Chima leaving until the eviction show. That probably won't work as they need to do the POV ceremony. Maybe they won't show it the same this week?

We'll know soon enough.

Thanks for the updates all night, it was great to know what was happening as I don't have the feeds!

August 15, 2009 at 10:05 AM  
Blogger kevin said...

Since there was already a double-eviction planned, there needn't be any change in plans for the week. Michele just has to do-over the Nomination Ceremony (she should put up Kevin bc he's the most likely to win POV, of the 3) and America might even get a Jury House vote! THAT WOULD BE GREAT!

actually when Michele said "I said nice things about her," I think she was referring to the Nomination Ceremony.

If Michele gets to put another person up she should throw Russel up there. He is still a huge threat and no one should trust him. This would be another big move on her part. The vote could even come down to a tie with Jeff and Jordan voting to evict Nat and Kevin and Lydia voting Russel. Now that Chima is gone Russel is the biggest threat and a wild card still. I know they just formed an alliance again but things change and they have so work it.

Good afternoon all,

I wonder if Chima is truly gone, I question because her is still full color vs gray.

If a twist would be her coming back, I don't think I would have the stomach for the rest of the season.

I feel CBS has damaged their image by allowing this type of behavior to continue and not punish people who vandalize/steal others belongings.

The season would not be shortened if they just do 1 eviction---Chima leaving would be the same as the
2nd eviction that was planned.

BB11 has already had twists and turns with the drama of the last few days--NO JESSIE PLEASE!!!

The other HGs that got evicted have been able to watch BB11 and therefore, would have an unfair edge over the present HGs.

I'm so happy Chima is out of the house. She actually thought that other houseguest were going to let her walk right through the game and not question her motives.

Lydia was right when she said Chima totally screwed them, meaning her, Natalie and to some extent Kevin.

Chima was the typical spoiled BRAT and when she couldn't get her way, she quit. She's a quitter, plain and simple.

Jeff and Jordan didn't act like children when Braden, Laura and Casey were evicted.

I don't think that they will bring Jesse back, because it still doesn't solve the problem of a 6 person jury. As far as the season getting short changed, they were going to do a double eviction anyway. So they have got Chima gone, and now one more.

Do we have confirmation yet that Chima is 100% out of the game? We know she is gone, and we know that she is not in the house. But does CBS/AGP still have her sequestered somewhere? Did Lydia and Nat pack her stuff because production told them to or because they just took it upon themselves to do it? Her pic isn't grey yet... maybe they are letting her see a psychologist and having a little talk with her and they are going to bring her back in before the veto comp...

Ya know none of this is shocking to me. In this day & age people have decided that rules are made for others & not themselves. You see it everyday in the judical system down to just everyday lives. Chima is apparently one of those who think that rules apply to everyone but her. If she did damage CBS property she should be made to pay for it. Chima can use this as a learning expereince or it can be used against her & will hurt HER in the long run. I hope she gets help for her very deep seated & justifed anger. When you are that angry it affects everything & everyone in your life.

Now.....do you think they will just have the one eviction this week?? Kinda hope so cause I always felt bad for the 1st HoH on double eviction week. Also what are they going to do about the jury votes?? Some seem to think they'll let America be that vote....hummmm!

Blogger Stephen Ritchie said...

Everyone saying nothing has changed and a double eviction can still happen per usual... I completely 100% absolutely disagree.

My (and many others) FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE thing about the end game of Big Brother is the houseguests being completely shocked by Big Brother in a week. No time to talk strategy about who to put up, no time to shake off a nomination blow before the POV comp... no time to strategize before a renom... Chima leaving and just playing another "normal" week STILL doesn't allow for the Big Brother Express Week to do its damage on the havoc and give some GREAT stuff for us viewers to watch.

They need to go straight to a new HOH, new noms, and veto comp all today, or mixture of today and tomorrow, and then have a normal eviction on Thurs AND STILL DO THE BIG BROTHER WEEK IN AN HOUR. Then one of the 3 (at that point) evicted houseguests should get brought back into the house the following week. That is the only way I foresee AGP making a 100% recovery on this one.

I hope they just do away with the double eviction. That way the game still plays out in the right time frame.

They can have America as the seventh vote. The only way it will make any difference in the final outcome is if it's a tie.

If N,L & K got 'screwed' because of what Chima did, it just shows how selfish she was. I can't have any sympathy for Chima because the emotional stress of this game is the same for everyone. No one was as foul mouthed and abusive to the other HGs as her.

If the situation had been flipped, and Jordan had lost Jeff, Natalie would have sat there with a smirk on her face loving every minute of it. And if Jordan and Michelle had messed up Natalie and Jesse's things, Natalie would have threatened to shank a bitch. I feel nothing for her.

Lydia is now trying to act like a civilized, reasonable person. She brings up the fact that the name of the game is to expect the unexpected. And she said if she got sent home she wouldn't scream at people and throw a fit. Of course not, she would only do that for Jesse. She said Chima will not get a good edit. I think she needs to worry more about her own edit. She went right along with everything Chima and Nat were doing and saying for nothing other than because Jesse was gone-cut me a break. He never had any real alliance with her. And she treated people like crap who have always been kind to her. Since Chima is gone now and Nat or Kevin will probably be next, I think the other HGs should just flat out ignore her. Don't speak to her, don't eat with her. If they did that for 24 hours I bet she would beg for their forgiveness.

I do like Kevin. But he is on the wrong team this week. I find it admirable that he was willing to stick by Lydia even when times were tough. But he never had any trouble telling Lydia when she was wrong or when he thought she was making a mistake. Granted, he did not take part in the name calling and vandalism since Thursday. But he still felt some sense of obligation to stick with his team. He should have made a stand. An eye roll doesn't count as standing up for what's right. At some point, he should have said, "You 3 beyotches are crazy and you are wrong and I'm outta here. And FYI, I am NOT one of the girls." It couldn't have ruined his chances of going further in the game any more than they have been ruined by sticking with his team.

I don't think Russell and Michelle are perfect. And yes, even Jeff and Jordan have made their own catty comments out of anger, boredom or self defense. But the 3 bitter betties have sunk to the lowest depths this season. The fact that Michelle is willing to talk to any of them shows who the better person is because it would be hard for me to even be civil.

I really question BB for putting Chima on the show in the first place. She has been through way to much before even coming into the house.

That being said, I think her plan backfired on her and she couldn't handle it.

I am not a Chima fan, but she was going down hill fast,..and I hope she is ok.

Honestly, I wasn't paying much mind to the door slamming, messin' with peeps' property, and washing machine commandeering. I thought it was just obnoxious tactics from the ED School of BB game-play (heh) but now I'm starting to get concerned by the whole Red Dye in Michelle's drink.

(I think Chima's whole episode is a whole 'nother matter which I've spoken about in previous comments.)

I really hope that AGP is curbing that messing with peoples' allergies. It's really concerning me to hear Lydia even suggest it. It's sooo dangerous.

Based on a tip from a fellow BB fan, I just found the following, at CBS' Big Brother website:

"An exotic beauty, Chima is truly as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside."

As if that isn't enough of a huge irony, how about this next part, which immediately follows the above sentence:

"Educated and independent, this freelance journalist is currently single and looking for a man who is tall, considerate and has a great sense of humor."

Humor, as in being able to laugh at all the verbal abuse he will receive if he dares to disagree with Chima?

Can't wait for Sunday's show, to see how Julie has been instructed to report AGP's spin on this latest debacle.

Any info on how choosing (America's Vote or otherwise) an "uninformed" replacement for the jury house would work. Kinda like trying to find an "uninformed" juror on a nationally televised, months old murder case, huh?

I am wondering if this is a combination of Chima being pulled and her quitting. In the past when someone has wanted to leave they have been made to wait 24 hours to give them time to change their minds(which they always have). That didn't happen here obviously.

I wonder how long it will be before BB includes Chima leaving in the show. Probably not Sunday but it would seem like they would have to announce it by Tuesday.

I don't understand why everyone thinks no one can be brought into the house? While I realize that no one evicted BEFORE Jessie could be brought back, what is to stop them from being cruel and waiting for the final 4 eviction, and then bringing someone back for ANOTHER final 4? It wouldn't be THAT far off from a realistic option...

Also, I realize they won't do it to remedy the jury situation (its quite obvious America is going to get a vote...) but it will still help them stay on schedule for what they had planned without having to compromise certain twists that the viewers look forward to in the end game.

What does everyone think?

In a normal double eviction, one of M's nominees would go home, there would be a new HOH selected, and then one of the new HOH's nominees would go home. If they let M nominate a replacement for Chema, she gets to send home two people. The other houseguests never get the chance to be the HOH who sends the second person home.

So, what if they let the houseguest think that M gets to replace Chema, and then tell them on the live show that it doesn't count, and go straight into another HOH challenge?

I was reading the additions to the post and noticed the conversation between J&J where Jordan said Chima is beautiful. Jeff said he couldn't see her that way because of the ugliness on the inside.

That is exactly how I feel about Natalie. I have read several comments about her being a beautiful girl. If I saw her somewhere and did not know anything about her, I would probably think she was a cute girl. But after watching her on BB, I find nothing attractive about her.

I don't see a smile, I see a smirk. I don't see a gaze, I see a glare. I don't hear intelligence when she speaks, I hear spite and ignorance. And I don't see a young lady when she shuffles around the house, I see a thug and a bully. I just can't see any beauty.

Oh Happy Day Dishers!

I was so disgusted by Chima last night, and the producers seemingly not doing anything about her blatant disregard for the terms of her contract to be on the show (i.e. wearing a mic and not destroying property) that I actually went to bed before BBAD was even over. I didnt even want to see her explode anymore. It was just gross.

You can imagine how happy I was this afternoon when I came here and saw that she is gone from the game! This is a wonderful turn of events and I am anxious to see where things go from here. At least I can watch again now that that woman (I'm trying desperately not to break the rules here and not bashing her or calling her names I would like to).

So I'll be going out to the movies and dinner later and feel good knowing I can watch the feeds and BBAD with a smile on my face again!

The TV onlies don't know who is nominated, so if they are thinking only of them (saying the heck with the live feed viewers) here's what I think they'll do:

Have another nomination ceremony after explaining at the beginning of the Sunday show that Chima had to leave due to "an unfortunate turn of events" or some bs like that. Tell Michelle she can nominate any two people she wants (since the circumstances are different now, she may want to nom two different people) and hold the nom ceremony that is shown Sunday night.

Then have the POV comp, etc, and take it from there with no double eviction Thursday (they don't even have to mention it again).

That's what I would do....

One of the comments (not sure who, sorry) brought up a great point: I can only imagine that the trama Chima experience made her feel powerless and out of control of what happens to her.... I can agree that when APG used the wizard twist on her it gave her the same feelings!! I think it was bad luck and timing that it happened on her HOH! I agree with everyone that I hope she finds someone to talk to about her issues!!!

She will have her family and friends like Marcellas who has been through it before and she'll be fine.

She survived real life trauma. This game will fade from memory pretty quickly in comparison I think.

I just have to give my 2 cents worth. I am glad Chima is gone. I think she should have been gone sooner or at least had some kind of penalty. This woman has so much hatred inside her. I know she had a traumatic experience that none of us could even imagine, but when you sign up for a game, you need to remember you are playing a game and not make it personal.

I think Michelle should be able to make a replacement nominee, then they play for the Veto, then Thursday Natalie will go home(wishfull thinking) and the game will continue. CBS needs to skip the Fast Forward.

But as well all know, expect the unexpected. All I want to say is please DO NOT bring Jessie back in this house. He has already had 2 chances..

Chima believed she wouldn't win and was doing it for exposure.Sad what it exposed of her.

I have been less than kind in regard to Chima. I do believe that she is intelligent and based only on physical appearance she is beautiful.

I also believe she may have some emotional issues because of what happened in her past and that would influence the way she feels about men.

However, she walked into the house with a sense of entitlement. She liked to use her intelligence to make others feel small. She showed right from the beginning that she could be very vindictive when she did not get her own way. And her racist comments, foul temper and trying to 'bait' Russell into hitting her started before she was HOH.

I don't think her feeling that she had no power because of the twist is what sent her over the edge. The vandalism seemed just another act from a spiteful spoiled girl. Maybe the twist is what sent her packing but I don't think it was because of emotional trauma. She had made the house miserable for a lot of people for 2 weeks and when Jeff used the power she realized she was going to be stuck in the house with those same people.

I also don't think the twist had anything to do with the way she treated production. Chima, Jessse and Natalie have been rude and disrespectful to production since the day they walked in that house.
