Big Brother 11: PoV #9, Eviction #10, HoH #11 (start)

Kevin needs to win the power of veto
(S11E27) Yep, we're nearing the end of Big Brother 11 as the final four gets chopped down to the final three. It's not the final three (or four) I would have imagined at the beginning of the season, but rarely does my first impression hold out. As the very pregnant Julie Chen mentioned at the top of the show, there is one representative from each original clique left in the game. I also wouldn't have predicted that she'd last the season. But she proved me wrong.

Touted as a "live" show, most of the show was indeed taped. The veto competition was over in reality a few days ago. The only real live bits of the show were the veto meeting itself, the eviction, and the start of the three-part head of household competition. Of course, those were all jammed together at the end. In the meantime, we saw filler, wheeling, dealing, and scheming.

I feel compelled to mention the music played every time we saw Jordan in the veto comp. Now, I like Jordan and she isn't as dumb as they've been portraying her on the show. She actually has a lot of lucid moments and good insight into people. Well, except for that trusting and liking Natalie, that is. In the comp, she was literally pulling total blanks and the music accompanying it actual had me snickering at her. Now I feel so mean.

So the game was really between Kevin and Michele. She had a decent strategy to start, but that fell through when her bottom square was wrong and she lost her concentration. Both Michele and Kevin needed the win to remain in the game. Had Michele won, Jordan would have remained loyal to her and voted out Kevin. If Kevin won, his ally Natalie has demanded he vote out Michele. Who do I really want out? Natalie. But, since she's HoH, that's just a silly dream.

Kevin won. Despite his wavering in the diary room segments, he's just a slave under the zombie leadership of Natalie. She talks like a zombie, she walks like a duck ... and she seems to have mind control over Kevin. It would behoove Kevin to plan to get rid of Natalie. If he's in the final two with her, the jury vote will go her way. Foolish boy. He must want to settle for second place.

At least Michele got to wear her devil horns and get in a few knocks at Natalie. She knew the chances of Kevin disobeying his fearless leader were slim to none. At this point, there was little to lose as all was lost the moment she lost the power of veto comp.

I've been watching both the show and the live feeds all season and I'm still not getting the vitriol towards Michele by Natalie. Michele hasn't played a dirty game. At times, she's been a very confusing and unpredictable player. But she wasn't ever a bully like Natalie or Russell, nor did she gloat like Jessie. I felt sad for her as she said that she never fit in back in school days and didn't really fit in with the other hamsters in the house.

The show left us with the start of the final head of household competition. Remember, the first part is always endurance. The winner of the first part sits out the second part as the two losers compete. Then the winner of the second part competes with the winner of the first part in the third part which will be aired live on Thursday. So we were left with the houseguests on a rolling log hanging onto their keys for dear life.

Once again, I ask that no spoilers are posted in comments -- they will be removed. Shortly, a head of household spoilers post will be up here on TV Squad. I'd rather hear your thoughts about the remaining three hamsters. Does Natalie really have any fans?

Did Kevin secure his second place finish by evicting Michele?
Yes, Natalie will win first137 (23.1%)
Yes, Jordan will win first217 (36.7%)
No, Kevin will win the half-million238 (40.2%)

I have never hated a player as much as Natalie. She a liar, mean (probably in real life),back stabber, and personally offensive in all her mannerisms. The fact that she lied about her age (good ploy) will come back to haunt her if she makes it to the final two. I rooting for Kevin and Jordan - and either one of them winning would be fine with me!!! Love this show. and Russell, Jeff and Jessie.

Jackie, Nat blames Michelle for not going with the all-girls alliance during the week Chima was HOH, in an effort to get Russell out. That hate got amped up after the "wizard" power reveal rendered Chima's nominations useless. Although Michelle couldn't have helped in that instance, Chima/Nat blamed Michelle for not committing to their alliance (and, really she didn't commit to any alliance in the season, leading to her downfall). After that, and the whole coup d'etat, Michelle was the scapegoat for everything that had gone down that week.

Natalie does not deserve to win - too bad that Jeff believed her lies. She didn't play the game until the end when she told Jeff her lie. She was just like a "puppy" following Jesse around. Never expected her of all the players to be where she is, but I believe it's because of her big lie to Jeff.

The thought of Natalie winning sickens me. This nasty 24 year old with no redeeming values who had the audacity to bring up her "Christianity" on the feeds needs to avoid lightning at all costs.

Still hoping Karma finds her sorry butt.

Did you notice what Michelle did in the POV competition? (My wife was the one who caught this.) When she layed out her blocks in order, then put them on the stack all at once, *she put them on backwards*. That is why nearly everything was red. She had Jessie/Russell on the very top, when it was supposed to be the very bottom. I'd love to see a screencap to see if she would have actually gotten them all right, if she had put them on in the right order.

My dislike of Natalie is almost obsessive. I am so hoping that she doesn't make it to f2...I think she may win and that's just scary.
