This season’s Big Brotherwas full of lots of drama- just the way we like it! The three contestants left to duke it out for the finale were Jordan Lloyd, Kevin Campbell and Natalie Martinez. Jordan and Kevin faced off in the final head of household competition. Surprisingly, Jordan won the competition and voted Kevin out, leaving her and Natalie as the final two.
The fate of Jordan and Natalie rested with the jury members comprising of Jessie, Lydia, Russell, Jeff, Michelle, Kevin and the viewers. The jury members asked a bunch of question that enabled them to make a decision.
The jury members voted and Jordan received the most votes from the show’s seven-member jury, which included viewer votes as the possibly tie-breaking seventh pick for the first time.
Jordan was served the $500,000 grand prize on “Big Brother 11.” The goofy 22-year-old waitress from Matthews, N.C., defeated Natalie, the conniving 24-year-old recent college graduate from Gilbert, Ariz., by 5 to 2 votes. Jeff Schroeder was chosen as the viewer’s favorite houseguest winning $25,000.
NataLIE has primarily spent the season deceiving other house guest. Her biggest lie was fooling most of the house guests into believing she was an 18-year-old recent high school grad.
The two-hour finale also featured the reunion of the 13-member cast — except for Chima Simone, the 33-year-old freelance journalist who was expelled after tossing a microphone into a whirlpool spa.
Jordan and Jeff were definitely our favorites on this season.
The first houseguest evicted from Big Brother 11, California surfer BradenBacha is speaking out on his time in the house, as well as his confrontation of Lydia, who he felt had betrayed him. In this new interview with People, Braden shows no remorse for the racial slurs he made in the house, even managing to get some digs in towards Kevin and Lydia again.
You’re the first one out, which is exactly what you would call on honor. Were you surprised?
I’m not going to be pissed off about something I can’t do anything about. I’d rather be the first one out than the third or fourth one out. The sky’s the limit for me. It’s summertime and it’s my mom’s birthday next week. I have things to look forward to.
What was your downfall?
It’s called sabotage. Lydia and I were getting along great and she went behind my back to save her own ass. She went and told lies to Jessie and told the whole Jock crew that I was out to take them out and kill them.
Do you regret calling Lydia names?
Absolutely not. She’s gross-looking and she does weird things and she hangs out with old men and she’s tattooed from head-to-toe and I think she’s disgusting. I have no respect for her.
Kevin ran up to defend Lydia and you threw water on him. Do you regret that?
No. He’s flamboyantly gay and you can’t punch a gay guy, let alone push him. I just wanted him to get out of my face. It was like saying, “Shoo, button.”
If they accepted your apology, why did Chima get up in the eviction pleas and call you a “bigot,” a “racist” and a “misogynist?”
She’s completely bipolar. She goes up and down all day long … She looks at you like she wants to kill you. She’s completely nuts.
Now that you know it was Ronnie who sold you out in the end, what are your feelings on the newest HOH?
People are going to realize that he totally blew the whole game for us. We had the whole strategy figured out and he blew it. He blew half the house’s plans, and people are going to get that it was Ronnie’s fault. And eventually they’ll go after him.
Above is the official Big Brother 11 Cast photo including the final cast member, Jessie Godderz from BB10. The premier of this new season was a big disappointment for me and many others from what I have been reading all week.
Big Brother had a chance to bring back a favorite former houseguest of ours, and for same strange reason, this ended up being Jessie. Not that we hate Jessie, it’s simply that we can easily name 20 former HGs that we would have preferred over Jessie. I know I was really hoping it would have been either Brian or Jessica.
Jessie was a disappointment, plus it seems the other former HGs did not stand a chance. I mean was another clique other than the “Athletes” really suppose to win that very physical competition? Didn’t think so either.
Below are some spoilers of what is to come tomorrow, including the 2 nominees and VETO winner –
We have some major Big Brother 11 spoilers for you. You should stop reading now if you do not want to know any details about what is to come during the premier tomorrow!
First things first, the cliques have been formed. The rumors are true and this year’s cast has been divided into cliques based on high school stereotypes. The cliques are below -
Populars – Braden, Jordan, Laura
Athletes - Russell, Jeff, Natalie
Brains - Ronnie, Chima, Michele
Offbeats - Lydia, Kevin, Casey
Interesting. Even though we were teased that the “13th houseguest” would be revealed yesterday, CBS did not come through. They have yet to reveal the last/final houseguest but they did release this tidbit of information -
The first HOH will be a former HG. Each clique is assigned one. The HG don’t know who they’re getting. Who are they? One of them had a showmance. Another was almost an All Star.”
What we do know is that it seems all but certain that Brian from BB10 will be one of the former Houseguests returning. Others rumored to be coming back include Eric from BB8, Jessica from BB8, Sheila from BB9, and Jessie from BB10.
A poster from the realitybbq.com forum was able to get a sneak peek at the Houseguests first night in the house. Below is a summary of what is to come -
“As with every first night of Big Brother it was a love fest. Ronnie couldn’t hide his excitement.
During the “Getting to know you” in the living room, Laura and Braden sat in the “you got screwed chairs”. Casey comes off as another Boogie, fedora and all.
Jeff wore the Chicago city flag on his shirt. He definitely has an accent
Michele downplayed her personal info.
Jordan is the new Jessica and everyone will love her.*
Watch out for Russell. He’s very chill and smart.*
Lydia and Laura were the first to talk game.* It was very brief and they said it’s hard to team up when they don’t know what cliques they’ll be in. Then Jeff and Russell joined them up stairs to play chess.
When Casey was called into the DR the rest of the HG made fun of him a little. Braden rapped as well as a white surfer from the OC can.
BB decided to divided the HG into their cliques after all. They found out when they entered the Back Yard for the HOH Comp
The first comp was endurance.
The Athletes seemed to have the best grip on the game over all. Not just the physical aspect but also the mental. They’re there to play.
At 11:30 the house had an HOH. You first met him in BB10 and he is sure to add a lot of drama to not only the house but to his clique as well.”
Above is a video briefly introducing us to this year’s Big Brother houseguests. CBS has only revealed 12 of the 13 houseguests to us, promising the final houseguest will be a familiar face.
The blogmosphere has been speculating that they think it will either be Jessica from BB8, Sheila from BB9, or Brian from BB10. Most of the evidence seems to be pointing at it being Brian. CBS will reveal the final houseguest to us on July 7th. The show itself will premier on July 9th.
I admit I was a little worried this cast would be boring after seeing their photos, but I must say that video has me excited once again. They seem to be a very dynamic bunch, looking forward to Thursday.
More personal and random photos of some of the cast below -
CBS has finally unveiled the all new cast of Big Brother 11! I blogged a while ago that Big Brother was pretty much my favorite reality show, so please excuse me if I’m slightlymoderately very excited!!!
The new twist this season is the houseguests will be grouped into cliques — popular, athletes, brainiacs and off-beats — just like in high school. Also as you can see from the above pic, they have only shown us 12 of the 13 houseguests. They will be revealing the last houseguest on July 7th. The houseguests will supposedly have to decide what cliques they are in once they get into the house. They will then play in those teams, before playing individually.
Rumors are flying that Sheila from Big Brother 9 will be the final houseguest, reason being she stated on her blog that she will be gone for 3 months. I am hoping this rumor is false as she was definitely not a favorite of mine during her season.
The show is set to premier next Thursday, July 9 at 8 pm/ET. The cast looks interesting so let’s hope this will be a season to remember. More pictures and info on the cast is below -
