Big Brother 11: PoV #8

Kevin has to make some decisions as head of household
(S11E24) Kevin wanted to win the head of household on Big Brother 11. Sure, the room and the basket of goodies is always fun. But the tough part, especially this late in the game, is making the right nominations and planning ahead for the veto competition. Nakomis (BB5) did it right. She literally invented the backdoor plan -- put two hamsters on the block, but neither of them your real target. Then, if the veto is used to save one, slap up your target with no way to escape. Did Kevin do that? Nope. He put his two targets on the block.

But first ... we found out the secret behind the mystery door. I'm not all that impressed. Apparently Kevin could have saved the money for himself (although that part wasn't too clear) or release it to the houseguests. So he got his hand stuck in a box while the others did their best to gather up and stash $10,000 which fell from the sky.

Thankfully the segment was hilarious, as Kevin tried to get his BFF in the house, Natalie, to rescue him. I'm so pleased he had a spy camera in the room and could tell just how much Natalie cared about him. Heck, if nothing else, release him so he can get some cash, too. But, as for the game-changing powerful twist promised, this fell way flat. Thank you Kevin for making it entertaining.

Then came the veto comp, a new variation on the face-morph idea. This time two hamster faces were mixed with aliens and it was all a huge space theme. Um. Okay. It's still the face-morph. I'll admit I was pretty lost looking at the faces. If I were in the comp, I'd probably time out at a good fifteen minutes. A lot of them I could pick out one face, but got lost on the others. How did you do?

Now comes the time when Kevin's nomination choices of his two targets put him in a tricky situation. One of his targets, Michele, won the power of veto. She's no Marcellas. And, despite Natalie's comment about "what little brain she has," Michele is no dummy. Of course, she'll save herself. Not only that, but she's thinking ahead. She certainly doesn't want to go home when targeted next week. If she can convince Kevin to make the tiebreaker a vote for Jeff to stay, Jeff will target Kevin and Natalie while Michele sails into the final two.

She's also right than Natalie must get got (BB terminology) before the final three. If Natalie makes the final two, she has too many friends on the jury. Anyone up against her will lose ... including her partner in crime, Kevin. Unfortunately, the hamsters often vote on popularity rather than who played the best game. Jordan would be dangerous in the final two, too. She's well-liked by everyone and is basically a nice person.

A Michele/Kevin/Jeff final three would be interesting. Between Jeff and Michele, Kevin would probably be blown aside in the three-part final HoH comp. Michele, although she's really kicked her game in gear, probably couldn't do any better than second place. But Kevin and Jeff could draw some interesting voting. Anyone but Natalie, I beg of all that's good and fair in the world.

To bad Jeff trusted Kevin. To bad he is not a man of his word. not only once but twice Jeff saved his sorry butt. And Natalie doesn't deserve to be there. She doesn't even try. I will stop watching BB if she or Kevin win.

I am so not a Nat fan! If she wins the next comp it may open their eyes to the fact that she could have won all along & played everyone to get to were she is in the game. I do hope Michelle goes to the F2 & wins it all!

I'm definitely going to miss the eye candy but have to agree the hunk made some wrong moves and I will not be shocked to see him leave.

On the other hand, I would LOVE to see Natalie's lying, nasty, mean-spirited butt out of there before the f2. Chomping onto the power players for dear life isn't my idea of playing a good game. And for her to repeatedly state that she's going to win the next comp is a joke.

Anything to wipe that smirk off her face.

From the many & various comments that I've read about this season's BB, many, many viewers are disgusted with Natalie. We know for some players in this game, they lie to get ahead.But Natalie's lying & scheming seems so mean spirited. She fits the category of those folks who will "throw a rock & hide their hands". IMO, Jeff is to blame for her still being in the house. When Jeff was playing a strong game & could have gotten rid of her, he got blinded by his own cockiness & couldn't see the forest for the trees as far as Natalie was concerned. I was shocked that he trusted Kevin & Natalie over Russell. Yes, Russell would have his temper tandrums. But Russell would keep his word. He had proven that to Jeff,when he(Russell) was HOH. He did not put Jeff or Jordan on the block as he said he wouldn't. How could Jeff forget that Natalie was in a strong alliance with Jessie & Chyma? An alliance that was so strongly & openly against the alliance he was in. Well, in Jeff's own words, he "got,got".

i am sooo disappointed 'couse Jeff is going home. I like him and I think he was playing the best game. The only error he did was to "trust" Kevin.

I am sooo sad.

I can't stand Natalie...she is terrible. A person with no skills and no spine. I cannot imagine how she can be a tae-kwon-do champion.

Jordan is a lousy player too.

At this point, as I am sure Jeff is out, I would vote for Michele.

I, too, am tired of Natalie. That girl piggy backs on others and squeals how she's getting closer. If I was in the final 2 with her, I'd point this out. "Hey, Natalie hasn't won squat and everyone else did the hard work." Aargh. Kevin getting his hand stuck was funny. Natalie going back outside to get more cash was funny too. Oh Kevin, you should have thrown Nat under the bus. She's not going to help you. Dump the extra 80 lbs. lol I'm sure Jeff will be voted out. There goes the eye candy.

Kevin should have put up Natalie, I was so sick of her telling everyone and everything how safe she was so why try?? She needed to be taught a lesson, but Kevin turned coward again and chickened out. If he put Natalie up Jeff would be safe, but no- I don't know what kind of game he is playing, but he doesn't make good decisions he makes"safe" ones, he's too afraid to make enemies- But Michelle proved wiley again and she is safe- he should be more worried about her than Natalie, because Natalie does nothing but ride on coat tails and brag how she's gonna win, she's won squat! And if she wins the game on the backs of others I think that makes her the biggest villian in BB history. She's lazy and a liar and getting away with far too much. Kevin will pay the price!
If Jeff goes to the Jury house I hope Jordan gets revenge!! But she's too sweet to, and blessedly not bright enough.
