Big Brother 11: Eviction #9, HoH #10

(S11E25) It's the end of the line for the two lovebirds of the Big Brother 11 season, Jordan and Jeff. With both of them sitting in the nomination chairs tonight, it's inevitable that one will go home. Kevin and Natalie hold the power in the house, and lone wolf Michele is but a lone vote. Kevin doesn't vote unless there's a tie.
The recaps had us seeing Jordan nominated in Michele's place first in color, then in black and white. I'm still not getting why they waste time doing that on the live shows. But, of course, they don't ask me. The local CBS affiliate (WCBS 2 out of Manhattan) also doesn't confer with me before putting the "live" eviction show after the Jets pre-season game. At least the Jets won.
Okay, enough grousing from me for now. That will last until I get on the topic of Natalie. I just can't help myself when it comes to saying evil things about her and pointing out each and every flaw, actual and perceived. Something about her just bugs me to no end.
Jeff and Michele were scrambling for ideas to keep Jeff in the house. That would mean Jordan would leave. But I think that Jordan would leave gracefully and be happy for her Jeffy if he has the chance to stay. Michele and Jeff even came up with the idea of throwing the HoH to Natalie, thus guaranteeing her a spot in the final three.
But it was not to be. Natalie's vow to reap "vindiction" (her word, not mine) is just too strong. She holds a grudge against Jeff for both the Jessie and Chima exits. So, she votes to evict Jeff while Michele votes to evict Jordan. Then it's up to Kevin. Jeff had delivered a few blows during his plea to stay and had called Kevin a backstabber. What's a boy to do? Vote to evict Jeff, for sure. Even if Jeff hadn't insulted him, Kevin would have voted him out.
To throw salt on my wounds tonight (my eye candy is gone), Natalie went and won head of household! Ack! The girl couldn't win anything all season and she wins this one? It was a bizarre fact or fiction comp which actually boiled down to a guessing game about what houseguests did after their eviction. She won. I'm floored. I'm disgusted.
You see, I've felt all along that if Natalie makes it into the final two, she has all of her buddies there. They often don't vote for the person who played the game best; they vote for their friends. But, the jury segment tonight shows that her age lie might turn out to cost her votes. Friends don't like being lied to. Now, had Natalie not told anyone she's actually 24, fine. But she told Jessie. He told both Russell and Lydia. Neither of them is too happy about it.
As Lydia said, "Our foundation was built on lies." I personally preferred Kevin's line -- "Natalie's name has 'lie' in it!" Whether the age lie will make a difference in the votes, I don't know. I do know I don't want that little open-mouthed food chomping, lying, punkette, pit bull, win no comps, take no showers, bug-fearing, annoying, chess-cheating so-and-so to win this season. She's been outright annoying all season on the show and the live feeds. At this point, you don't know how much I want a Michele win. How about you?
