Each week after every eviction, host Julie Chen will answer a few of EW’s burning questions about the latest episode of Big Brother.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I was positively riveted watching Christine’s husband and family talk about how uncomfortable they were watching her cuddle and flirt with Cody. What do you make of the whole Christine-Cody situation, and does her husband have a right to be upset?

JULIE CHEN: Christine’s husband has every right to be upset. In fact, he wasn’t upset enough. All I know is if I ever did what Christine did then I would be coming home to no husband at all!!! Then again Christine is a free spirit and he knew who he married in the first place.  

EW: America soundly rejected Team America’s self-appointed mission to put on a play. Let’s be honest — how lame was that, Julie?

CHEN: That was no play! And Derrick even called it “that Broadway thing?!?!” Wha?!?!?  There were no story lines, no dialogue, no interaction between any of them. That was a string of imitations of one another. Funny ones. But NOT a play! Fail!!!

EW: You showed some videos from loved ones back home to the contestants. Why decide to give them that little morsel of communication?

CHEN: Seeing human emotion from each houseguest is always good TV. It’s also a nice little reminder for each one as to why they are there. They are doing it to better the lives of those they love.

EW: It’s pretty much impossible not to love Donny. Where does he rank among some of the most popular Big Brother players ever?

CHEN: He has by far the highest likeability rating we’ve ever had on this show!  And it doesn’t surprise me one bit. I dare you to find one person out there who doesn’t like him. He is awesome. The real deal.

Julie Chen hosts as the houseguests battle it out.
