Jordan confronts Russell on Big Brother 11
(S11E20) After the recent excitement in the Big Brother 11 house, I'm spoiled. I want every episode to be a Chima meltdown. I want the producer's voice to come over the intercoms of the house and yell at bad hamsters. I want brouhahas and perhaps even fisticuffs. No, I don't anyone to get hurt -- I just want my excitement fix from the episodes. What did I get tonight?

Big Brother 11: Head of Household spoilers

Big Brother 11 is living up to the hype latelyShh ... don't tell anyone, but I have some Big Brother 11 spoilers for you. Are we alone? You see, CBS would rather the results of the head of household competition remain a secret until they get around to airing it on Sunday night.

But you know it's all over. Heck, they only had an hour time limit -- long enough so they couldn't do it in its entirety on the Thursday live show. But it's all over now. It only looked like it could last an eternity. Admit it. You like to peek ahead to the end of a novel, and you really want to know who's the latest head of household. Read on for extreme spoilers!

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.

Kevin and Michele in the HOH room.

(S11E18) If you're a Big Brother aficionado, this single episode is bound to be one of the biggest classics of the series. I'm talking absolutely brimming with moments which will be referred to for years to come. Remember the classic Dustin face upon eviction? This is better than that. Evel Dick dumping ice tea on Jen? Child's play, I say! For once, the television-show-only viewers get a taste of what the live-feed-watchers have seen this season. It's not pretty. It's actually a rather depressing look at humanity. But it's entertainment.

Michele listens to Chima in the BB11 house

(S11E17) I think Michele's eyes are glazing over and she's put herself into a coma state as she listens to Chima rant on about Russell in the head of household room. You see, Chima isn't over her loss of power to Jeff's use of the coup d'etat in the Big Brother 11 eviction this past week. How dare Jeff change her nominations! How dare America screw her over by voting to give Jeff the power! How dare they evict Jessie (the man, the myth, the legend) instead of her choice of Russell, the terrorist. Mind you, those are her words ... not mine.

Big Brother 11: Breaking spoilers from inside the house

Big Brother 11 is really Drama City!Admit it. You don't want to wait until Sunday night ... or maybe even Tuesday night to hear about the big drama going on in the Big Brother 11 house. Sure, the real happenings in the house are usually a few days ahead of the actual airing of the shows.

Yes, the nominations have already happened. But that's not even the major news of the day. I'm talking huge. I'm talking BB history annals big. I'm talking drama, I'm talking excitement. But, unless you want to know major spoilers, be warned that show-changing news is beyond the jump.

Jeff holds the mystery power on tonight's Big Brother 11

(S11E16) Ah, it's the big night for the Big Brother 11 hamsters! While Chima has nominated Russell and Lydia for eviction, Jeff holds the power of coup d'etat. With that power, he can overthrow Chima's nominations and choose replacements. Tonight's show isn't only controversial for the houseguests, it's caused a brouhaha for the fans.

CBS should realize in this day of blogs, tweets, and more ... you have the audience arrive several hours early and word gets out. Although taped early with the live feeds blocked, I knew the outcome before it aired. Why did they tape it ahead of time this week? Did Jeff use his magical unicorn powers? Read on.

Lydia has been nominated for eviction from the Big Brother house
(S11E15) On Sunday we saw Lydia and Russell nominated for eviction from the Big Brother 11 house. I'm a bit torn between the two. You see, if Lydia goes, great looks like this one above will be over. She's all but summoning the ghost of a twisted tattooed Lucille Ball. Lydia has intriguing good looks, but she's also a chameleon running the gamut in appearance from Betty Boop to punk rocker. She's not my favorite hamster in the house, but I enjoy seeing what look she'll come up with next. On the other hand, Russell never does much with either his hair or his make-up.

Chima is queen of the house on Big Brother 11

(S11E14) Well, the power was up for grabs in the Big Brother 11 house on Thursday, and Chima not only snagged it, but she's relishing it. I have a feeling she's not going to be happy relinquishing it when the time comes. She's Queen Bee! She's the woman with power! A woman should win this game! Unite, gals! Burn your bras; join the revolution. But will she go as far as losing Jessie as an ally? Read on.

Russell cleans up nicely on Big Brother 11

(S11E13) After watching a man in a banana suit get evicted last week on Big Brother 11, it was a welcome sight to see Russell neatly dressed in a sport coat. But then there's Lydia. No, she wore neither a banana suit nor a sport coat. It wasn't what she was wearing at all. It was her face. For reasons known only to herself, she painted a black make-up stripe across her eyes. It was sort of raccoonish, quasi-Lone Ranger. It was just a tad odd, but Lydia isn't your normal gal next door anyway.

Russell is the head of household this week in the Big Brother 11 house

(S11E12) This week in the Big Brother 11 house, it's all about fractioning the factions. As is typical, it's already a house divided. So, for fun ... let's divide it twice more! Oh, heck. Go for thrice-divided. Even with a scorecard, it's hard to tell who's on first. Therefore, I think we need advanced mathematical equations. The show is often about lying and backstabbing, but it's generally a bit more predictable than this. This time we're talking crossing party lines.

Jeff goes for the win in the HoH comp on Big Brother

(S11E11) When we last left our Big Brother 11 hamsters, they were vying for head of household in a twisted graduation-themed masochistic amusement ride scenario. Why graduation? Well, it's the end of the cliques, and they're all solo players in the game. Folks like Natalie are feeling very vulnerable. After all, what game has that girl got other than being Jessie's pit bull? Jeff has his worries, too. While being a part of the athlete clique, he never really was a part of the group. We're finally into some strategy other than the bullies with a head-start advantage ruling the game. Good.

Jeff during the HOH endurance compYou know you want to know. When last night's Big Brother 11 show ended, all of the houseguests were on a giant carousel getting whapped with a foam rubber diploma and getting rained upon. The television show won't show the winner until Sunday night.

Does that mean that they'll be swinging about until Sunday night? Nope! It's always over within hours and it's well over as I write this up for you. If you're the kind of person who enjoys a sneak peak at the end of the novel you're reading ... you need to read beyond the jump. If you don't like extreme spoilers, stay right on the main page of TV Squad.

Jessie nears the end of his HOH reign on Big Brother 11

(S11E10) Regrets, he may have a few, but there's no way he won't brag of his second head of household reign in the Big Brother 11 house. Julie Chen, the beloved ChenBot, might regret saying lines like "it's the banana's final appeal." That was about Casey, a man in a banana suit for the week, nominated for eviction. As much of a groaner as Julie's line was, this show certainly had a few more interesting ones.

Casey in a cheap banana suit on Big Brother

(S11E09) I understand that we're in troubling economic times. I realize that budget cuts are affecting many companies. But really, Big Brother. We are talking the national television level here. Are there cutbacks in the creativity arena? The idea of a banana costume unrelated to anything specific is in and of itself a bit odd. But, such a cheap unisex half-costume takes the step to badly bizarre. I mean, it gives Casey yellow man-boobs. I don't blame him for being an angry banana man.
