Big Brother 11: PoV #6, Eviction #7, HoH #8

Will Jordan's nominations remain the same in the BB11 house?
(S11E19) Jordan's abbreviated head of household reign came to an end on tonight's Big Brother 11. Of course, it wasn't quite as abbreviated as Michele's run before her. However, this whole week has been all topsy-turvy in the house. Let's see ... this week was originally scheduled to be the fast forward double eviction week. Instead, Chima went all kinds of bonkers and got the boot from the producers, forcing the comps to go a bit awry, as well as the events of tonight's show.

For all they had to get done on the show tonight, there was a ton of filler material. I mean, we're talking the first 25 minutes. You'd think with a live power of veto competition, a live PoV ceremony, the voting, the new head of household comp ... did we really need so much filler?

Actually, although they could have tightened it up a bit, the filler stuff was very relative. The viewers needed to see Lydia and Natalie bond in their new outcry against Jessie (the man, the myth, the legend). Yes, he was playing the both of them. I'm not a Natalie fan, but at least she didn't do silly bed tricks with him. I'm not so keen on seeing the tents with Lydia, though.

The lie which wasn't a lie
Now, this is classic. Russell really talked with Michele about taking Jeff out and making a final two pact together. Meanwhile, that fact wasn't known by the other side -- Lydia, Natalie, and Kevin. Kevin has been scheming trying to think of an angle he can work to get them to backdoor Russell. What does he decide to do?

Bingo! His lie was that he and Natalie overheard Russell and Michele talking in the splish-splash room about taking down Jeff next week and going for the final two together. I watch the live feeds all the time, but Kevin is nowhere near as priceless in the house as he is in his diary room segments (which we don't see). The guy is a hoot! And, in this case, he was almost on the verge of psychic. His lie is the truth even though it's a lie.

Jeff and Jordan, wake up!
Neither Lydia nor Natalie have ever won any competitions. On that playing field, they're even. But the difference is that, as Jeff said, "Lydia is broken." She really is. If the nominations remain the same, would it be better for them to keep the broken person who won't fight to stay or the scrappy little pit bull who's gnashing at the bit? If it were my game to play, I'd keep the broken one. I could get her out whenever I wanted. The pit bull, you just don't know who trained her. She might just chomp on and not let go.

But this is how it went down:

  • Jordan won the power of veto.
  • Her nominations remained the same -- Lydia and Natalie
  • They voted. Kevin was the only vote for Lydia to stay.
  • The pit bull remains in the game.
  • That could bite Jordan and Jeff on the butt down the road.
  • And, if it does, they deserve it.

Then the power was up for grabs again
The show ended with an extended head of household competition. It's not really an endurance as there is a time limit of an hour for it. But it's enough to run well beyond the end of the show. Since the winner won't be revealed on the show until Sunday night, I ask that folks refrain from spoilers in the comments. I'll be posting a spoilers post specifically for the HoH comp.

If YOU were HoH, who would you want evicted?

Kevin is by far my favorite. He's really funny and can read people, and also has become the best competitior in the house (with Michele as a very close second). I hope he wins the 500 grand. I think backdooring Rusell was a now-or-never thing. Either A. Rusell will figure out about Operation whatever they called it and will be all "confrontational" and Jeff and Jordan will make up with him and be all buddy-buddy again. Or B. Rusell wins this HOH comp and targets them for eviction.

I taped the episode and watched the POV comp several times. I watched Jordan's body language and her facial expressions. It did not look like she cheated. She seemed a bit unsure on some answers and simply seemed to change her mind. And a couple of times, as she started to move, she glanced back as if to reassure herself whether the "up step" was the before or after. A very Jordan-ish thing to do. Go to CBS.com to watch it again.

the weird part about Kevin's lie that was true but still a lie is that Michelle added to the lie LOL

as for Jordan winning the VETO
IF Michelle had been in her socks or bare feet when stepping up to and down to before and after Jordan would have lost as Jordan always stepped up or down after hearing which way Michelle went even Russ mentioned it too Michelle on the live feeds it was so obvious during the VETO comp. that played out on the TV broadcast that Jordumb was cheating with her ears

Jeff should win over Jordan. Not only is she dumber than dirt, but he has been carrying her this whole time. She only won the HoH contest because he let her win it! Plus, she said she is sooo poor that she had to share a room with her mom, then how could she afford not only fake boobs but fake teeth too?! And her voice, don't even get me started on that helium sounding voice! She gives new meaning to the words "dumb blond!"

Should have evicted Natalie. Like you said Lydia is the weak one, they could get rid of her at any time and her strength weakens more every day. Maybe this week they will get rid of Natalie because I still consider her a little more threat than Russel because he knows if it comes down to him and Kevin in the final 2 that Kevin will likely get the majority of the votes. At least that's the way I see it. But really the only ones who can trust anyone are Jeff and Jordan and I'm really rooting for Jordan.
