Tuesday Afternoon in the Big Brother 11 House
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! :) If you missed the morning post, make sure to check it out, so you'll be up to speed with what's going on between Russell and Michele.
It's 12:20pm BBT.
- Michele's sweeping up.
- Russell's working out on the elliptical, as he has been for a while now.
- Kevin's moving about... we follow him into the Haves Room, where he finds...
Lydia's just recently put her uni on, but she's still in bed and growly... and.. scratch that, the uni's off again. Now she's sporting a cami that matches her fuschia hair perfectly... and lol, now she's getting the uni back on. Per her request, Kevin comes to help zip her up. She says she's gonna go work out... and dons her superhero cape.. and the goggles... and Lydia and Kevin head outside.
Kevin begins doing light bicep curls in the mirror... making squinchy face with every lift. He does a few, then heads over to the bench to do dips for his triceps... then back to the mirror for more curls.
Russell's still on the elliptical.
Natalie & Lydia
Natalie just had her phone call. She's very happy... She got cut off a little faster than she would've liked, but she feels like she was able to say everything sh wanted, and it was just great to hear his voice. She's sniffling, talking about how amazing it was...
Kevin enters. Natalie continues describing the call. She's been worried about her dad being alone... She tells them that her dad and brother have been watching the show together, and that her boyfriend's been watching the live feeds.. and that they're watching and supporting her...
She asked about her sister, and her dad said she's watching and supporting her. Dad also told her that his work situation has improved. Dad ressured her that she's making good decisions... and she told him that everything she's done has been strategic... (referring to Jessie)
She told him that it's been a really tought week for her... and that to hear from him, it's exactly what she needed. He said, I know it's been a rough week...
"It just.. it was really good.. He told me that he totally supports me... He wants me to stay here. he wants me to fight... So, I'm excited and happy... Oh, and he said that, Jason told me to tell you he has a twistie for you when you get out... "
The twistie refers to what her boyfriend's parents gave eachother instead of rings when they first got together... Natalie told her dad to tell him she accepts, but she'll want a princess cut diamond to follow it.
Lydia and Kevin are being supportive listeners. Lydia interjects that she better not see Jessie at their wedding.
Natalie: Aaah. :) Thank you, Big Brother... I'm totally... ahh :)
Cams 3 & 4
Lydia & Michele
Michele and Lydia have a very tense apology... Lydia accepts Michele's apology for calling her a c-nt, but that word doesn't sit well with her at all, and it's still quite tense...
BRB Control Room Screen
Russell, Lydia, Kevin and Natalie
Natalie's telling Russell about her phone call. He's drenched from his hour on the elliptical and smiling ear to ear at her joy over the call.
Kevin heads out to the elliptical. Natalie follows...
Natalie: When I say I'm totally alone in the house, I don't want you to take thathe wrong way... I'm just playing that up to them.
Kevin: Well, don't overplay itll
Natalie: no, exactly..
Natalie's on cloud nine.
Around the house...
- Jeff's up and in the downstairs bathroom.
- Kevin's on the elliptical.
- Lydia's cooking.
- Natalie's at the pool table, racking them up.
- Michele heads up to the HoH Room to talk with Jordan.
Jordan's just recently up. She still hasn't gotten her period. Michele tells her that sometimes when you're stressed out, it skips.
Natalie and Kevin are wondering what's up with the PoV... Per the previous post, we have our own theories...
Michele & Jordan
Michele asks if she can use the bathtub to shave. Jordan says she doesn't need to ask. Jordan steps on the scale, says 140, and groans. Michele tells her about the paranoia she was feeling yesterday, and that it even invaded her dreams... she mentions the yellow shirts everyone was wearing again, then sets to shaving her legs.
Jordan heads downstairs to the backyard to ask Natalie about her phone call. Natalie retells the tale... We learn that her boyfriend stays up all night watching the feeds.
Everyone, no matter their feelings for Natalie, has been checking in to hear about her phone call, and perhaps feel their own families love vicariously through her...
Jordan goes in to the kitchen and tells Jeff how happy Natalie is, and how happy she is for Natalie. They're both fixing food.. and telling each other how well they each slept last night... together. It's a good sign.
They're wondering about the PoV comp too...
Lydia & Natalie are on the couch. Kevin's on the elliptical. Russell's working out, but he's feeling really sore from the massage last night.
***Someone should've told him to drink a lot of fluids last night.
Lydia's pissed that whoever woke them this morning didn't play music. Natalie's happy about it.
Lydia: Dude, your boyfriend's seen everything...
Natalie: I'm ok with that...
Lydia: But you've made reference to Jessie's package.
Kevin: Yes you have...
Natalie: It was totally visible...
Lydia: Dude, you're totally gonna get engaged when you get outta here.
Natalie says she's marry Jason in a heartbeat... Lydia says it would be so cool if he proposed at the finale.
Kevin: If I make it to the final 2, I want it to be the first gay proposal on live tv.
Talk between Natalie & Lydia turns to Michele... Lydia tells her about the "apology." Natalie says "she knows better than to even try to apologize to me. That would be unleashing the pit bull."
Lydia keeps going on about Michele calling her a c-nt behind her back... Not so, she said it directly to Lydia the day of Jordan's HoH win.
Natalie & Lydia are sharing their Live Show speech plans... Natalie plans to crucify Michele with a speech attacking her on her claims of dedicating her life to Christian values.
Jeff comes outside to eat.
Natalie and Lydia are talking a little good natured smack to each other about who's going to win PoV. Natalie says she's going to win, and adds that after speking to her dad today, she can't go home this week.
Natalie shares her phone call story with Jeff...
Kevin & Michele
Kevin asks her how the blogging and tweeting was... Michele tells him the tweeting was relly cool, and that she got a lot of questions about her sleeptalking... "Like I would write something, and they'd all.."
***Fishies. Is she lying to him, or did someone in production just get fired for changing the settings on the twitter account so the HoH was actually able to see incoming tweets?
***btw, apologies for no pics on this post. My cable went out at 11:45am BBT, and this whole post has been being typed at Starbucks. I was about to leave and go home a few minutes ago (got a call that the outage is over), but then the sky opened up - major storm.. so here i sit... let's see if i can make the sniping tool work and add some color to this post.
There we go! :)
Kevin is making an uber fruit salad.
2:10 PM BBT
- Jeff puts on sunscreen and lies on the floaty in the pool.
- Lydia & Natalie are playing cards on the patio couches.
- Kevin makes a fruit salad and joins the girls.
- Michele is eating outside on the sofa as far as possible from the above.
- Jordan is lying in the pool then moves to the hammock.
- Russell is unknown...
- Jeff and Jordan are talking about how well they slept last night. Jeff says that Jordan was cupping his bum in her sleep. (**LOL! Who could blame her.)
2: 20 PM BBT
Russell & Michele
Michele is turbo whispering that Jeff must have told Lydia that she called her a c*nt because Lydia called her out on it.
Michele: He may be trying to make Lydia mad so she will go after you.
Russell: He's trying to get one of us out.
Michele: The stuff I told to Chima, they probably told to him and he's mad at me.
Russell: Let's play it cool. I'm trying to be white on rice around him today.
Michele: We need to POV and not use it because they might be trying to backdoor us.
Russell: I'm not surprised.Jeff is trying to play the game now. Maybe he isn’t set on the F4 deal.
Michele goes outside to get her laundry and Lydia is giving her the death stare.
Jeff and Jordan are sunning. No talk there. Kevin has decided to follow in Jordan's tradition...
Russell and Michele have joined Jeff in the pool. Lydia begins bashing Michele to Natalie calling her a d*mba**.
Russell gets out of the pool to lie down. Michele and Jeff speculate on the POV. Lydia goes inside to cook some food. Natalie joins her and they speculate about the POV and an upcoming Double Eviction. (**DE has been preempted by Chima's departure.)
3:00 PM BBT
Kevin, Natalie & Lydia
Kevin tells them that Jeff doesn't have a F2 deal with Jordan, but they all think he has an F2 with Michele. They say that Michele has an F2 deal with all three of them. Kevin thinks that their plan will work because both Michele and Russell are shady. Natalie wants to feed on Russell's paranoia and get him to break. Kevin tells them to cool it because they will start to wonder why they are pushing for Russell to leave.
Kevin: Have you noticed every time they want to talk to us about LML they call Jeff or Jordan into DR?
Natalie: I was the mastermind behind the LML and you (Kevin) were the executioner. Lydia spews more Michele hate. Kevin tells her to tone it down.
Jeff passes through to DR and they change the subject.
3:22 PM BBT
Jeff and Jordan
Jeff is showing Jordan a card trick and they are having a great time.
Michele joins them and the atmosphere sobers up a bit. Michele breaks the silence by saying that every time she gets bored, she cleans. She says that the downstairs bathroom is filthy. The conversation is stilted with a lot of silences.
3:46 PM BBT
Around the House
Jeff is playing solitaire and Jordan is popping pimples...
Kevin, Natalie and Lydia are napping.
Michele and Russell are in there.
Genie is taking a break! See you all for the Tuesday Show Viewing Party! :)
3:50 PM BBT
BBVoice: House guests. This is a Lock down. Please go outside and close the sliding glass door.
4 minutes later, the lock down is over. Hmm. Okay, now I'm really outtie :)
