Nominations In!

No surprises - it's Ronnie and Lydia. Kevin is trying to give Lydia a pep talk, and is angered that Russell is a "typical male" by going after a poor, weak girl instead of an "alpha male". Natalie's key was apparently the last one pulled, and Lydia's also pissed at her reaction.

Nomintions Made - Lydia and Ronnie

After Russel promised Kevin he was safe - Lydia was the logical choice to go up against Ronnie.

Nomination ceremony ended around 6:30pm.

Lydia was touchng up her makeup when the feeds returned and Ronnie ended up meditating it looks like in the green room.

The rest of the house - perhaps save Keven is in a great mood.

Russel seems to have used the overheard conversation from Wednesday night as the excuse. You can use Flashback to go back and see it - roughly 10:30pm 7/29 - cameras 3 & 4.

What a Shocker!

Lydia wants Natalie put up, and doesn't want to be put up as a pawn. She keeps telling Russell that she knows he's going to put her up, but Russell says his real target is Ronnie.

Now This Is the Jessie We Remember!

Ronnie Throws Lydia and Kevin Under the Bus!

Ronnie was patiently waiting for Jeff to leave HOH, and literally sprinted in to talk to Russell. He was immediately asked who he thinks Russell puts up, and doesn't hesitate to say Lydia and Kevin deserve it..and that he doesn't deserve to be put up. "When I was HOH, I really put myself out there by putting (Laura and Jeff) up."

He quickly moved on, though, to bitching about Jeff and Casey, and how they were calling him "fatty" and pushing Ronnie to put him up.

Lots of Friday Updates

Here is what is up in a nutshell.

Russell, as HoH is going to nominate Ronnie and someone else - most likely either Kevin or Lydia using the excuse that have won things. In a meeting today Jeff and Russell talk about a secret alliance.

The "Have Nots" have been given Squid and Squash by America - yum. They won't be eating squid. Natalie doesn't have to eat slop since she has the slop pass but she has said she won't be taking showers this week.

The voting up until 9:20pm last night for the Coup d'Etat has been nixed - so if you voted online before then you need to vote again. The page to vote is here - LINK.

Jessie Discretely Warns Jeff and Russell

Since Russell won HOH last night, Jessie has resorted back to the sleepy, mopey jerk we dealt with all last year. He's also on slop, which Lydia offered to take for him (blech), which just isn't fair!

Jeff and Russell were just up in the HOH talking a little bit of strategy, and Jessie came in to get some blankets. Not real happy with the consensus that Ronnie needs to go, as he walked out the door he babbled "but next week I get to play HOH. I'll be ready".

For all his faults in the first three weeks, Russell really does understand the game or lack of game of everybody in the house.

Final Negotiations - Jeff Drops!

Some BBAD Screencaps


Russell just let Jeff know that he was Casey's lone vote, and that he promised it from the first week. Yet they both want HOH. Jeff says he's too much of a "low man on the pole", but they both have promised to not put up the other.

It sure is a long way from "Technotronics"!

Russell Just Pissed Himself!

Michelle Is Down!

Jeff and Russell are discussing a deal...but right now they're discussing how Michelle's "cooch" was showing.

And Then There Were Three...

Chima Down!!!

She may have hurt herself in her fall, as you could hear Ronnie yell for help right before the cams went to "we'll be right back".

Diploma's Working Again!

A Rare Shot of Jeff

Two cams on Jessie and Natalie, but none on half of the contestants still in the game. Makes no sense to me.

The Final Four!

Now the camera crew hates all boys...which normally I don't mind.

The final four are Chima, Michelle, Jeff, and Russell. I actually give the edge to the ladies, as they're dressed for cold, damp conditions.

Jordan's Out!

Excuse me while I cry.

Gotta Hand It To Chima and Michelle

Russell is my odds on favorite, and the camera crew seems to agree.

Feeds back!

Natalie is also down. Russell is the most vocal, it seems. He wants to swing, get wet, and get beat by the diploma.
The contraption is back to swinging and water is falling. Cams are on Russell, Michele, and Chima.
Oh, and off the feeds go.
And they're back.


Hi everyone!

So the feeds WERE on for a hot minute...then gone.

I saw Ronnie fall. And Kevin and I think Lydia (not sure on that one, was a quick view of what I thought was a girl who looked like her) are down.

If the feeds ever come back for good, I'll REALLY know who's down.

Big Brother - Season 11, Episode 10 Recap

Welcome to a night that CBS has promised will include a “game changing” announcement. Most people are assuming this means that we’ll see the dissolution of the cliques, but for once I’m really hoping the producers truly make an unprecedented move that we’ll all be talking about for day. Yeah, I know - wishful thinking.

Of course, we’re also going to see a live eviction, and a HOH competition that everybody predicts will involve endurance. The HG’s have been on lockdown since early last night, and it’s usually been at this point in the season where they do have such a competition. Again, I’d like to see a little innovation.

Julie opens the show by announcing tonight is “graduation”, and the cliques are over. They’ve all sort of figured that out anyway, so it won’t be as big of a shock to them as CBS hopes. Wait, the power lies in our hands? Uh oh, this should be interesting.

Here we go with the footage from the rest of this week, and we start with the reaction to the nomination of Casey to replace Michelle. Both Casey and Jeff are pissed that Ronnie wasn’t nominated, and babble what you would expect about “Teflon Ron“ Ronnie is getting a bit too excited as he brags about how he survived another week.. Jessie says he put Casey on the block because he’s a bigger threat and is coming after him. Um, ok Oh, I must say I still love that footage of Jordan complaining about Ronnie staring at her.

After the ceremony, Casey heads outside and Jordan apologizes. “It’s all good, man - season of the dork”. Jordan then complains about the smiling looks she was getting from Ronnie. “I just wanted so bad to tell him off”, she says in the diary room. “The only reason you are still here is because you are Jessie’s bitch”. God, I love this girl.

Casey adds that Ronnie got him by using the “Ronnie jedi mind trick”. “They got rid of Laura because she wasn’t a sheep. Same for me…people have short memories in here.” Jeff then comes out, and says “they’re all off in a corner somewhere” when Casey asks if they’re celebrating. They then bitch about the “zinger”, which really wasn’t nothing more than a silly one-liner - “move your feet, you gotta new seat”. Really, it was Jessie attempting to be clever…and I mean attempting. Jeff goes on, though, about hiding behind your sunglasses.

Time for something to disgust everybody. We see Lydia wandering up to the HOH in the middle of the night, and crawling into bed with him. “I like to watch Jessie sleep”, she says in the diary room. “Sometimes he moves, and he smiles…or his face has different expressions on them. Maybe Jessie’s dreaming about baby unicorns (yeah, right). Maybe he’s dreaming about, I don’t know, riding his motorcycle. But it would be nice if he was thinking about me.” Please gag me now. “Because he’s asleep, I could snoop. I could play practical jokes on him.” (Or you could use your mouth or hands on him, as you have done countless times.) “I really hope Jessie never makes me mad, because I could pretty much do whatever I wanted. Maybe while he‘s sleeping I could get revenge.” A nice edit then shows her leaving without having any inter…uh, action with him.

Thankfully, we move back on to gameplay. Jordan is looking fine as usual while sunbathing, and she says in the diary room that she’s not going to do any campaigning because Casey’s honesty will “get himself in a little bit of trouble…I’m the greatest pawn ever.”

Yet Casey does attempt to gain some momentum. Kevin is outside with him, and he talks about how it must suck to do whatever Jessie wants him to do. Kevin doesn’t really respond, “I’m just amazed that there’s no outrage over Jessie having some sort of deal.” Kevin perks up a bit, and asks if he has the votes, adding that Chima is his “weakest link in the chain”. Casey doesn’t agree. “Lydia is in love with Jessie. He could be laying in bed with another bitch, and she’ll make him breakfast”. Kevin claims that she would indeed vote for him ‘if you have the numbers”. Casey adds that if he stayed, he could go after them without Kevin getting any of the heat. We all know that Kevin loves anybody but himself to do the dirty work.

Casey now begins working on Russell, who asks if he’s talked to “your boy” since being put up. Casey informs him that he’s number four on that team. “I’m number two.” Casey puts up a convincing argument that Jessie would never put up Natalie before him, and probably also Ronnie. “You don’t need those dudes. I think you, me and Jeff could do some damage.” Russell says that Casey is giving him some good points, and that “it’s a huge gamble that could pay off”. Yeah, sure.

Wow, that’s all of the previous day’s footage we’ll see tonight? Interesting. We come back from commercials to Julie talking about Jeff and Jordan’s “relationship”. What about Lydia and Jessie? Or Natalie and Jessie?

You know what’s seen here - lots of footage of Jordan and Jeff looking adorable. We then head to Jordan’s hick town to watch her family view “footage” of her on the show. There’s no real need to go through what’s said here, but Jordan’s mom does seem to like Jeff.

Then we move on to Jeff’s hometown, and they all laugh at the “technotronics” line. Dad says he’s acting just like he does at home, and his mom laughs at how he’s never been good at spelling. After some more adorable footage, both families say they like the two of them together. Both mothers are a bit over the top, hoping that they do “make babies”.

After this package is over, we move on to Julie’s interview with the house. Of course, she immediately goes to the “200 pound banana in the room”. Casey jokes that the banana suit “makes it easy to choose what to wear, and it shows off my tan”. She moves on to Ronnie, and how last week it looked like the house was against him. She wants to know if he’s surprised he wasn’t nominated, and he babbles the standard line about “actions showing people‘s true colors”. Julie presses for some names, and he just goes on about how “they know who they are”. God, please make it stop.

Julie moves on to Lydia, and her tensions with Natalie. As the camera moves to a bug-eyed Jessie, she asks if their fight was really over beds. Lydia plays dumb, which she’s great at doing. “It was about beds. It wasn’t about anything else.” Oh please. Julie doesn’t buy it, and moves to Natalie. “There was more brewing”, she adds, but refuses to bite when Julie keeps going. “I plead the fifth”, Lydia finally says. We end the segment with footage of Michelle falling into the mud pit…with little comment but a thank you from Michelle.

Oh great, here’s Jessie in the HOH room. Her first question is about Lydia and Natalie, and Jessie claims that they’re relationships are all “platonic”. Oh God. He then denies they’re fighting over him. She keeps going, asking if these relationships are real. Jesus, Julie, stop it. And one more question - are they playing him? Julie, please. Some of us have yet to eat tonight. He does admit it’s a possibility. “Everybody’s in here for a reason - to win a half million dollars”.

It just won’t stop. Julie’s final question is which of these women he’d like to be stranded on a desert island. “I’m going to have to plead the fifth.” My god, even Julie says his answer is lame, but again carries on.

Thankfully, this segment is finally over, and it’s time for the final statements. Jordan goes first, and is just adorable as she says she doesn’t have anything to say except she hates going against one of her best friends in the house.

Casey then stands up and apologizes to letting people down. “The reason I’m in this position is because two house guests stabbed me in the back - Ronnie, the manipulative dorkapotamus with the God complex, (and) Jessie, the self-absorbed smedium-wearing egomaniac with the personality and IQ, oddly enough, of a banana. Both of these guys stabbed me in the back, and they’ll do the same to the rest of y’all. It’s funny that you (Ronnie) talk about actions..after what you did to me.” Go Casey!!!

So the voting begins, and it’s as expected. Jeff goes in first and votes to evict Casey, as does Ronnie (ugh) and Natalie. After commercials, we see Chima vote to evict Casey, but Russell votes to evict Jordan!!! Michelle, though, votes to evict Casey, as does a mustachioed Lydia (ugh) and Kevin.

When the house receives the news, Casey tells everybody to “knock them dead” as he hugs everybody. “Your word is mud”, he says as he walks out, and Natalie gives him some lip back. This goes back and forth a bit, and he asks her if she’s “his pitbull. Go make him a sandwich.” Oh man, I love this!!!

After he walks out, Lydia hugs Natalie as she babbles more about Casey not living up to his word. She’s also pissed about the stray vote. Um, Natalie, you did the same last week. There’s lots of bleeping going on during these couple of minutes.

Julie starts the interview by saying he went out “guns blazing”. “I had to”, he responds. “You can only take so much. People are on you, and it’s hard to take some of that stuff for weeks at a time.” Julie points out that Jessie was turning red, and he says that he should. “He doesn’t impress me in very many ways. He didn’t win the first HOH, and the one he won I think was luck.”

Julie then asks about his gameplay, and how he got played by Ronnie in the first week and that this week everybody would be “down with the plan”. He admits he made a mistake in “being too trusting”. When Julie points out signs that Ronnie was becoming pals with everybody again, Casey says his big mistake was in trusting Jessie.

We end, as usual, with the goodbye messages. Russell claims that he tried to come up with the votes, while Ronnie is gloating (as usual). Ugh. Jordan tells him how awesome he is, and then Natalie babbles how she really is 24, not 18, and with a college degree…and that’s why he’s sitting out there while she’s still in the house. Um, no. This goes on like it normally does, and gets less interesting as the segment drags on. Julie thanks him for his honesty, and after informing Casey that the cliques are done we’re done with Casey. “And that’s not all.”

Julie informs the house guests that they need to gather in the living room, and Natalie babbles “no more cliques”. See, I told you it was no surprise. Julie goes through with the dramatic speech anyway, and continues on about how one of them will soon be granted a “mystery power” which can be used in the next two weeks. Yeah, yeah, yeah, this could change the course of the game, and only the person who has it will know they have it. Please don’t let it be Ronnie!

She can’t tell the house guests who will have that power, as it will be a vote by America. Winning HOH and veto is supposedly more important this week than ever, as it’s the only way to guarantee safety. She then tells a stunned group to head outside.

Julie then explains to us that the mystery power is the “coup d-etat”, and the winner of that power will have the ability over the next two live evictions to overthrow the HOH by replacing one or both of the nominees. This could be interesting!!! I may even vote…for silly little Jordan!!!

And here we go with the new HOH, and sure enough it’s an endurance competition. It’s the hanging on a swing comp that we’ve seen in previous seasons. There are also six envelopes to entice people to drop out early; with one containing $5000.

A giant diploma is entered, though, that they crash into as they’re swinging around. Yeah, this won’t take long.

We get one final look at the house, and Chima says she’s dizzy. Sure enough, they introduce “rain”, which I’m sure pisses off Natalie since she didn’t get to use her trash bag costume. And that concludes this week’s live eviction episode!!!
