'Big Brother 11' live show: Come back, Chima, all is (mostly) forgiven

Posted on

“Kevin wouldn’t lie, would he?” “No!”

“We’re trying to heal the wound that Jessie created.”

“Operation Bosley and the Two Angels.”

Who said these things on Big Brother 11 tonight, and who got evicted?

Here’s your warning: DON’T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED ON THE LIVE EDITION OF BIG BROTHER 11 TONIGHT!

I’ll limit myself to two topics and leave the definitive treatment of BB to the wise Josh Wolk and his TV Watch.

1. Could you believe how quickly Natalie and Lydia did a 180 on their beloved Jessie, simply by finally getting around to comparing notes on the muscle-man’s behavior with each of them? How quickly adoration turned to hatred?

2. Could you believe that Jeff, Jordan, and Lydia all think Kevin is a game-player who would not tell a lie? The guy is now the only player who’s actually strategizing ruthlessly and with self-interest. In other words, playing the game the way you have to play it. His plan with Lydia and Natalie — the above-mentioned “Operation Bosley and the Two Angels” — seemed to work like a charm.

The result, after the eviction of Lydia, was one of Julie Chen’s best exit interviews. The host could barely contain her surprised glee that Lydia was jabbering to the live audience about now hating Jessie.

Did you watch? Don’t you think they should have voted out the far more devious and game-smart Natalie?

And now that she’s gone, and she’s made her apology, don’t you kinda miss the fireworks Chima provided?

Oh, and be sure to check out this video of the apparent Jedi-master of BB, Jessie. He fooled two gals just long enough to make his exit:
