While Tuesday slipped away in Big Brother 11 without a sign of the Power of Veto competition the house was abuzz with strategy and full-on game playing. New alliances were formed while another broke apart. In the end a plan was formed for Jeff and Jordan with one HG firmly in focus for eviction with another waiting in the wings. Find out who below with the highlights from Tuesday.
The current speculation, both inside and out, is that we’ll see the PoV comp and ceremony live on Thursday night before the live eviction. Since the double eviction plan was squashed with Chima’s expulsion the show will have the extra time it needs to host all these events. Should be an awesome show on Thursday!
Update: CBS just confirmed that the Power of Veto competition and ceremony, along with the live eviction and follow-on HoH competition will all be played out live on Thursday’s show. Wow!
Big Brother 11 Live Feed Highlights – August 18, 2009:
10:30 AM BBT – Michele tells Russell about Jeff hanging out with Kevin, Natalie, and Lydia last night and how she heard her name. She is seriously stressed on this and Russell tries to calm her fears.
10:50 AM BBT – Russell tells Michele that he’ll put his foot down if Jeff sways from their 4-person alliance and tries to bring Natalie, Kevin, or Lydia in instead. Both Russell and Michele agree that they won’t vote for Jeff to win in the end either way.
12:30 PM BBT – Natalie is back from her prize of a phone call home to her dad. Her dad warns her that her boyfriend is watching the live feeds. He also says something about the boyfriend telling her parents he got her an engagement ring. Seriously? I would have been getting her a cardboard box for her stuff!
1:30 PM BBT – Natalie and Lydia are confident that everyone has already decided how they’ll vote on Thursday and aren’t campaigning.
2:30 PM BBT – Michele and Russell freaking out together and want to win the PoV to insure their safety from the potentially changing plans of Jeff and Jordan.
5:00 PM BBT – Michele is upset and crying because she’s sure Jeff and Jordan are going to betray her. Jeff reassures her their good, the three of them, but he’s not sure on Russell anymore. They end with a hug and Michele improves her mood.
7:45 PM BBT – Jeff tells Jordan they need a group meeting with Russell and Michele to confirm their status and what’s going on with Russell betraying them (this was the lie from Natalie and Kevin). Jordan says that if Kevin wins the PoV and saves one of the girls then they’ll put up Russell instead of Michele.
9:15 PM BBT – Jeff and Jordan talking game and again are nervous that Russell will betray them. Jordan confirms her plan to nominate Russell if Kevin wins and uses the PoV. She points out it’ll likely be a tie vote then and she’ll have to decide to evict Russell or the remaining girl. Jeff thinks that if Lydia is evicted then Kevin would join their side.
12:00 AM BBT – Michele tells Jordan that Russell is afraid to go up against Jordan in the Final 2 because everyone likes her. Michele is busily planting seeds of doubt.
2:15 AM BBT – Jeff, Jordan, and Natalie talking game. Natalie wants Kevin nominated because he’s won $10,000 but has never been nominated. Jeff and Jordan agree they want Natalie to stay over Michele or Russell now. Natalie says she’ll agree to nominate Lydia next week if they agree to keep her around.
2:40 AM BBT – Jordan says they really need to evict Russell this week.
3:30 AM BBT – Jeff and Jordan agree that if Lydia goes on Thursday then they can have Kevin, Natalie, and Michele on their side against Russell. But if they have the chance to evict Russell this week they should take it. Otherwise Lydia will be evicted this week.
There were a ton of new deals and plans put together yesterday in the house. The HGs in the most danger will be Russell and Lydia this week.
One scenario neither Jeff nor Jordan discussed was if Lydia or Natalie win and use the PoV. Would they stick to the Russell eviction plan or go after Kevin? I still think Kevin is greatly underestimated in this game and poses a big threat. Who do you think Jordan should be targeting this week if the PoV comes into play?
