Last night’s extreme editing job by Big Brother 11 to present just slivers of Chima’s accusations at Russell for being a terrorist truly reinforced the need to keep watching the live feeds and see what’s actually happening in the house.
Big Brother fans who only watch the broadcast episodes would have missed Chima’s attacks on Russell’s Lebanese heritage as the start of her “terrorist” comments and her follow-on references to him as Osama. While I was disappointed in Grodner’s editing decisions, I was not surprised.
With that out of the way, let’s look back over what happened Tuesday throughout the Big Brother 11 house.

Big Brother 11 Live Feed Highlights – August 11, 2009:
12:00 PM BBT – Chima and Jessie conspiring to blame things around the house on Russell. They’re hoping to upset Lydia at Russell in case she is saved by the CDT and might consider voting to evict Russell.
1:30 PM BBT – Jessie becoming worried that Lydia has the power as she’s becoming more reclusive in the game as though she doesn’t need anyone to help her this week. Jessie’s plan is to be overly nice to Jeff and Lydia just to cover his bases in the hopes they’ll not Coup him.
2:30 PM BBT – Jessie and Natalie are in be-nice mode with Jeff and chatting him up on things about his life, etc. Will it work?? I don’t think so!
3:00 PM BBT – Jessie goes to the kitchen and tries to offer to make Lydia a shake. No response. He then offers a potato. No takers again. Too little too late? Lydia admits she is mad at Jessie and continues to sit in silence with her hood down and toying with the Play-Doh.
3:30 PM BBT – Nothing to do with game-play, but Jordan is trying to help cut Jeff’s hair and I’m thinking she’s not such a pro at this. Just something funny to go back and watch. Lydia steps in and corrects the situation.
4:15 PM BBT – Natalie realizing (or at least admitting) she’s in real danger of going up thanks to the Coup D’Etat power, especially if Lydia has it (she doesn’t). Natalie and Jessie are sharing in their worries.
8:30 PM BBT – Natalie is detailing out her eviction plans. First up she wants Russell out on Thursday. Next she will have Jeff and Jordan nominated together so they will at least have one remain on the block. After that she wants Michele gone and finally Lydia. Hmm, Natalie should try and win something now that she knows what to do with it…
10:00 PM BBT – The HGs play “table topics” where they pick up a card and pose the questions around the room to start conversations. Mostly silly talk, but fun to listen in on.
12:00 PM BBT – Talk turns to who to keep. Jeff says he wants to keep Russell, but Michele disagrees because she says he betrayed her earlier. All agree that if Jessie gets HoH he’ll be targeting Jeff/Jordan/Michele.
Well look at that, Chima got through the day without stereotyping or making broad strokes of random claims against people. She’s getting better!
It was an otherwise calm day in the house with little game talk. Jessie turned on the charm and Natalie tuned in to her pending danger. Will they be able to befriend Jeff enough to remain safe this week? We’ll know very soon!
