Cirie Fields

In what is being described as the first blindside of the season, Cirie Fields was surprisingly voted out of her Survivor tribe when her fellow alliance member J.T. flipped sides.

Most people seem to think this was both a smart and brave move on JT’s part, but how does the proclaimed “puppet master” feel about being ousted? In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cirie opens up on her feelings on being voted out, on whether the show host Jeff Probst influences voting, and what she would have done differently. Some excepts are below –

I want to start where it all ended for you: Tribal Council. Were you cringing the entire time Probst went on an on about the idiocy of voting off strong players?
Oh my God! Was I?!? I try not to react when Jeff makes his comments because everyone’s watching, everyone’s listening, and I don’t want to influence any vote one way or the other. And I’m trying to not let what he says influence the votes one way or the other — but absolutely! We sit on these little tree stumps. After Tribal was over when I got up I don’t know if you saw that toothpick fall from right under, but I literally was clenching my behind the whole time, like, “Please, Jeff, just move on to something else!” He was going exactly against why I was telling them we should vote out Tom, so yeah, that was a real clencher for me.

Did you know it was J.T. that voted you off?
No, I wasn’t sure who it was. I felt like Rupert, Amanda, and James were pretty much going to stick to the plan, but you never know. I couldn’t tell. I knew Tom was talking to J.T. a lot and I never trusted J.T. I always said to Amanda, “Are you sure about J.T.?” because I could see J.T. playing. So it was hard for me to figure out which one flipped, but I wasn’t really that surprised.

You take a pretty clinical, strategic viewpoint of everything. So how did you feel about how personal James was getting with Stephenie at that Tribal?
Oh, boy. I like both of them and I even said to James after that Tribal was over, “Was it necessary?” I know this game gets your blood boiling and I know everyone is there to try to win, but I think James’ lack of ability to articulate how he feels made him come across more brutal than was necessary. James will be the first to admit he doesn’t do the social thing, and not having experience in the social aspect and being able to speak to people and get your point across without coming off like a brute, I think kind of hurt him.

You’ve had some time now to sit back and replay everything. If you could jump in Mark Burnett’s magic Survivor time machine and go back and change one thing about how you played, what would it be?
I think I would have tried to spend more time with J.T. and make him feel comfortable and convince him that he wouldn’t’ have been my target later on.

TELL US – WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST SURVIVOR EPISODE? DID JT DO THE RIGHT THING BY JOINING FORCES WITH TOM AND COLBY? IS RUSSELL PLAYING SMARTLY?

The Amazing Race kicked off the premier of it’s 16th edition last night, and there to compete for the $1 million grand prize was America’s favorite couple from Big BrotherJordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder.

The duo got off to a great start as they managed to come in first place after the first race to Chile. Though, the winners of the show will not be known for weeks to come, Jeff, 31, and Jordan, 22, open up about their Amazing Race experience in a new interview with PEOPLE.

The best news of all? The couple is still very much together and even credit their time on the Amazing Race for making them “stronger.”

Excerpts from their interview is below -

Were you fans of the Amazing Race before signing on?
Jordan: It’s kind of funny. I’ve been part of two reality shows and I had never watched either one before. I had to YouTube it, just like I did with Big Brother and figure out what everything meant, like ‘detour,’ ‘roadblock’, and all that other stuff.
Jeff: I had watched it a couple of times, but I wasn’t a die-hard fan.

Did your experience together on BB help you, or hurt you?
Jeff: I think it helped us, and played to our strengths. I’m sure that brothers and sisters, or mothers and daughters had issues after a week of being together non-stop. What was a strain on other teams was a positive for us; we didn’t have to worry about being together all of the time, we were already use to it.

Did traveling together put too much strain on you two, or do you think that it actually made you stronger?
Jeff: It was definitely a strain…
Jordan: (interrupting) I think it made us stronger!
Jeff: (laughs) Let me finish. It was definitely a strain on the relationship, but it definitely made us stronger. The fact that we went through the hard times that we did is a testament to our relationship. This show really pushed us to the max, and it was tough, but we’re still a couple, we’re still here, and it show’s a lot that we’re still together.

You two went from being locked in a house for three months with a bunch of lunatics to traversing 5 continents and eight countries in a race against other cutthroat teams. Are you two just gluttons for punishment?
Jeff: (laughs) No, but I look at it as an amazing story, how Jordan and I met, and how things have been working out between us. It’s definitely something to tell the grandkids type of story, and hopefully things keep working out the way they have, because as crazy as it’s been, it’s a serious relationship. I love the way things are and I wouldn’t trade it or change it for anything.

TELL US: DID YOU WATCH THE PREMIER? HOW FAR DO YOU THINK JEFF & JORDAN WILL GO?

amazing-race-16-cast

CBS has finally unveiled the identities of the 11 teams that will be competing of the 16th season of the Amazing Race. And as previously reported, Big Brother’s Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will indeed be on the show as a team.

The new season is set to premier on Sunday, February 14 at 8PM ET/PT. Another surprising cast member is 20-year-old Caite Upton, the former Miss South Carolina Teen USA who made headlines and became infamous when she gave a such as nonsensical answer during the interview portion of the 2007 Miss Teen USA pageant.

As always, the members of each team already have a pre-existing relationship of some kind. For this season, five of the teams are couples who are married or dating, while four teams feature family members and two are friends or co-workers.

This season’s cast features the usual assortment of models, actresses and model/actresses, it however also features several contestants with more unusual occupations — including a baseball coach, a bull rider, a cowboy, two (soon-to-be former, apparently) undercover detectives, and a 71-year-old personal trainer.

40,000 miles were covered during this season, including visits to five continents and eight countries. The race which began with public transportation to LAX airport (a first for Amazing Race), consisted of the teams flying to Chile, where they encountered “one of the most daunting Roadblocks in the history of the series,” according to CBS. Sounds fun!

Big Brothers Jordan Lloyd, Jeff Schroeder The Amazing Race'

Great news Big Brother fans! Several reports reveal that Jeff Schroeder and Big Brother 11 winner, Jordan Lloyd, will both be appearing on the next season of The Amazing Race.

Witnesses spotted both Jeff and Jordan at the Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday with numerous other teams. Big Brother fan, Danielle Varey, was able to snap a picture of the couple at LAX and posted it to her Twitter account . As you can see, they’re dressed in the familiar Amazing Race uniform of color-coordinated shirts, sweats and backpacks. The photo is below.

Another confirmation is the fact that Jeff has yet to update his twitter account since the 22nd of November. We also reported back in October that both Jeff & Jordan confirmed they were officially a couple. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out on the new season of the Amazing Race.

CBS is not commenting on this story. The network says it will announce the full cast for the new season next year, closer to the show’s airdate.

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED TO SEE JEFF & JORDAN ON THE AMAZING RACE?

This season’s Big Brother was 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.

Big_Brother_Jeff_Schroeder

Jeff Schroeder is speaking out on his recent departure from Big Brother 11 in a new interview with People.  The  30 year old advertising salesman from Chicago, who also happens to be one of the dreamiest most liked houseguests in Big Brother history, answers the questions BB fans have been wondering about, such as why did he put his trust in Natalie and Kevin?

Jeff also talks about his future with houseguest Jordan.  Excerpts from his interview are below -

What happened to the kiss you promised to give Jordan?
There were a lot of emotions running through my head. Jordan was the first person that I grabbed and if she would have come with me to the door, I definitely would have [kissed her]. I didn’t leave the way that I wanted to. I wish I would have kissed Jordan and I wish I would have said more encouraging words to both Jordan and Michele.

Do you think you made the wrong choice by going after Russell and siding with Kevin and Natalie?
Everyone is confused about me “switching” sides from Russell to Kevin. There were no sides. It was me and Jordan in the end. I wanted to split Michele and Russell up because there was something cooking between them two, and I wanted to get the strongest player that was left in the house. I wouldn’t change anything that I did. I made the decisions and I put it all on my shoulders but if I had won the POV, I personally think that I would have won the game.

America gave you the coup d’etat, which you used to flip the game on its head. How shocked were you when they revealed it to you?
It was actually overwhelming and I don’t think I did a good enough job in thanking America for that because I was actually speechless. I was wishing for something the entire game and I felt like my back was to the wall and this was a gift from above. It was the best feeling in the world to know hat someone outside the game was on my side.

Who do you think has played the best game so far?
Hats off to Michele. She comes through in the clutch, she has big wins and proves herself time and time again. To this day I cannot figure her out, which is probably a really good quality to have in this game. The difference between Michele and Kevin is Michele bends the truth and Kevin is a straight out someone that cannot be trusted.

Is there a future for you and Jordan outside the BB house?
It’s hard to have a relationship on that show, in that house. I definitely want to maintain a close friendship with Jordan outside of the house and if something evolves from there, great. If it doesn’t, I don’t want to jeopardize the friendship that we have.

Who is going on your Hawaiian vacation with you?
Hawaii is still a question mark for me. Let’s just say that Jordan is on a very short list.
