Last night on Big Brother 11 the excitement ran high for Team Jeff & Jordan as the game continued to shift in their direction. Following the live Power of Veto, where Jordan doubled down with her wins for the week, the HGs went on to evict Lydia to no one’s surprise. From there the remaining six houseguests battled it out in a mini-endurance competition and a new Head of Household was crowned.
Find out who won and what happened after last night’s HoH competition below.
Big Brother 11 Live Feed Highlights – August 20, 2009:
Ross Mathews and “Inside Dish” are back! This week Ross has newly evicted Big Brother 11 HG Lydia in the hot seat. You know, this is the Lydia that I wish I had seen more of in the game instead of the Lydia she became in the game.
Check out Ross’ interview with Lydia below:
Tonight’s Big Brother 11 Head of Household competition truly turned out to be an endurance battle as the HGs are racing to see who can “recycle” the most soda cans by dropping them into narrow tubes from their elevated platform. The first houseguest to reach 24 cans wins, but if no one reaches that threshold after an hour whoever has the most will be crowned the winner.
You can watch the HoH competition play out right now on the the Live Feeds. Don’t have the Big Brother Feeds yet? No problem, you can sign-up here now with the Free Trial to join the rest of us and watch it all live and uncensored!
Update @ 6:30PM BBT: The live feeds are back and the HGs are already inside having dinner! Well nuts. Let’s see who is revealed as the winner.
Kevin said, “F you, Jeff” kiddingly though, so maybe Jeff got it. Jeff is talking quickly and excitedly with how he was playing so I’m thinking…
Confirmed: Jeff is the new HoH. Michele just asked what snacks he requested, so I’m taking that as confirmation. Kevin lost by 1 can!
I’ll be updating this post here with the PoV, eviction, and HoH comp results. Meanwhile, join us in the chat room as we tear apart tonight’s eviction episode!

HoH Competition – ‘Can Do’ Endurance Comp:
The HGs have 1 hour to to drop 24 soda cans down into tubes about 4 feet below their elevated platform. At the end of one hour, if no one has 24 cans in the small tubes (read: really hard to drop them in) then whoever has the most cans wins.
The HoH comp is over and Jeff has emerged victorious!
Once the live show is over the live feeds turn back on and we’ll see get to see what’s been going on since this afternoon. You can get the 24/7 uncensored feeds with the Free Trial so why are you waiting?!.
Rumor Update: Buzz is building that tonight could be an endurance competition. If it is then be sure you’re signed up and ready so you can watch it all on the live feeds and discuss it in the Big Brother Chat Room with us! We’ll be here until it’s finished.
Speculative Update: Looks like it will be an endurance comp as the HGs are gearing up in athletic clothes. This is interesting because we usually get 2 endurance comps a season with one already done and the second usually being at the Final 3. That means Big Brother is dumping its usual cycle to suddenly introduce a third HoH endurance competition. As such, I would pose this question: During the previous endurance competition, who were the 4 best players (longest lasting) and who were the 3 worst players (shortest lasting)? Oh my, well look at that…
If BB holds an endurance comp tonight one could easily argue production is tilting the comp to Team Jeff/Jordan/Michele/Russell. What do you think?
Tonight on Big Brother 11 we’ll have both the live Power of Veto competition and ceremony followed by our sixth eviction in the BB11 season. After last week’s fiasco featuring the fury of Chima I’m glad to see a return to the usual routine of the live eviction. But there won’t be anything routine about tonight’s show as I mentioned with both the eviction and the PoV events all taking place within one fast hour.
Normally I’d offer up a poll for who you’d vote to evict this week, but without the PoV results the nominations are still wide open and anything can happen. So instead this poll offers up everyone but Jeff, because come on, would Jordan actually nominate him? No way. Vote in the poll below then tell us why.
Will Jeff and Jordan betray Russell and backdoor him as they’ve secretly discussed? Can Natalie’s new deal with Jeff keep her safe? Will Captain Unitard live to fight another day? The only thing I know is that I can’t wait for tonight!
Meanwhile, get your Big Brother 11 live feeds ready so you can watch the house react uncensored to who is evicted and who becomes the new Head of Household. If you don’t have the live feeds yet you can still get the Free Trial discount. That along with your monthly $10 in free mp3s with your subscription and you’re getting a really good deal. Try it for free. Keep it for fun!
Twas the day before the live eviction and all was not calm in the Big Brother 11 house. As the remaining HGs looked down the barrel of the Thursday’s PoV and eviction there were more questions opened than answered. Not knowing who would be up on the block put everyone on edge as anyone could go home.
Through the day the new, unreliable alliance was reaffirmed with Jeff, Jordan, and Natalie, while the more stable and open agreement between Jeff, Jordan, Michele, and Russell was finally resolved. How long will that hold? Hopefully long enough to get through the week.
