Survivor which is in its 20th season will debut a “Heroes vs. Villains” All Star game in its 2 hour premier Thursday, Feb. 11 while the 16th season of “The Amazing Race” will follow three nights later on Sunday, Feb. 14. Great news Big Brother fans, as we reported earlier, both Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd will appear as participants on the next season of The Amazing Race.
CBS also plans to air a special on Feb 4th currently called “Surviving Survivor”. This special will take a look at past contestants and memorable moments on the series.
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?
Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd of Big Brother are officially a couple! The well liked and popular duo of BB11 have been inseparable since the show ended weeks ago. In a new interview with PEOPLE, they confirm their relationship status and discuss life out of the Big Brother house.
“Yes we are!” Jordan Lloyd, 23, tells PEOPLE when asked if she and Jeff, 30, are officially a couple. “We never really talked about it. It just kind of happened.”
“I liked her on the show, that was obvious,” says Jeff, “but after the show ended I liked her even more. I get in trouble when I say that, because Jordan is like, ‘You didn’t like me on the show, and now you like me!?’ but what I mean is that I like her even more now that I see who she is outside of the Big Brother house.”
Jordan has also kept her promise and bought her mom a home with part of her $500,000 earnings from winning the show. “Right after the show,” she says, “I got on the Internet, but I couldn’t find anything, and to make matters worse, my mom was being so picky. But I finally found something, and when my mom looked at it she fell in love with it!”
As for whether or not things have gotten intimate with the couple, or in Jordan’s words, whether or not “booger” is in their immediate future, Jordan says with a laugh, “I think he’s waited long enough.”
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.
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.
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.
