Russell is indeed Chima's target, and Natalie is pretending to back her while at the same time attempting to raise doubts. She also is still enraged that Michelle voted to eliminate Ronnie.
Entries in Chima (48)
But I honestly couldn't deal with the feeds last night. Chima's cackle was already annoying me even before the CBS broadcast signed off, and when Chima and Natalie chided the house for eliminating the person who helped them study for HOH I just had to turn it off.
Thankfully, there's the Real "wayback machine", so this morning I went back to scan over the night's "highlights". For the most part, it was the Jessie show last night. Did you know that if the questions were in a different order he would have won HOH? Or that the coup d'etat isn't fair because the winner doesn't have to do anything (besides impressing viewers) to win?
When he wasn't trailing Chima and offering his demands...I mean advice...he was in Kevin's face for having the audacity to not vote against his best friend. Yet, a few hours later this very person he was pitching a tent with the very person he wanted out.
I have to hand it to Chima, though. Despite Natalie and Jessie's vigorous assertions that Jordan and Jeff need to be nominated, she is holding her ground against doing that. Russell, Lydia, or Michelle are names that are constantly being mentioned as nominee possibilities.
Like so many nights, though, it's the same conversations over and over and over.
As for the mystery power, Natalie doesn't believe it's possible that either Jeff or Jordan won. Both her and Jessie believe that Kevin won. Lydia, though, does believe that it's Jeff, mainly because if it had been the other half of the house Ronnie would have been saved.
Although Ronnie has been working hard to get that needed extra vote to ensure his safety, nobody seems to be biting. He worked Jordan and Jeff especially early this morning, but they apparently ducked their heads under the covers and started kissing (at least that's what she told the other girls today).
Over the last two days, Natalie has been pushing Jessie to pursue a tricky maneuver that would shock the house. By pretending that poor Ronnie will be the first unanimous elimination, she's pushing for Jordan or Michelle to give him a sympathy vote.
Will she be able to convince either of them? Doubtful. I know if I was either Michelle or Jordan I'd simply ask Natalie to then be his sympathy vote. If Natalie hadn't already attempted to create problems with a rogue vote this ploy may be more successful. I doubt anybody would be willing to take the risk at Ronnie once again surviving.
As I type this, another minor battle has began in multiple rooms of the house. It all began with Russell mad at Michelle for joking that Russell has an "erectile dysfunction" problem, and spread to other "lies" that somehow include Kevin. We all know the only time Kevin even speaks to anybody other than Lydia is when his name is besmirched, so he's pleading his case to King Jessie. Michelle and Chima are hashing things out in the bathroom, and the rest of the crew (Russell, Jeff, Natalie(!),and Jordan are outside.
Jeff is doing his best to be the voice of reason, advising Russell that he shouldn't get so hung up over little lies with people that you're eventually going to be friendly with again the following week. Russell, though, thinks it's bullshit to act like everything's okay with people you don't respect.
(Actually, I think Russell has determined that Michelle may be his match in the brains department, and is masterminding this non-controversy to undermine her supposed growing power.)
There's again talk about a house meeting (bad move!).
Chima is sitting outside with Lydia and Ronnie, complaining about Russell (of course). For somebody who labelled Braden a racist, she's not exactly acting politically correct herself. She said that Russell is no Kayzar, and is "giving his people a bad name". She half-joked that she's going to keep calling Russell a terrorist because America hates Middle-easterners.
She also claimed that after Russell is gone she doesn't care who wins. Yeah, right.
Ever since Michelle won veto, the feeds have been extremely boring. Ronnie has attempted to sway almost everybody in the house, but only Chima appears to be buying into his schtick. Most of the attention has been on Michelle, who definitely isn't paying any attention to him. Just a few minutes ago, Ronnie claimed that he has "added" people to the alliance he earlier claimed he didn't have.
One interesting conversation was held last night, though, as Michelle had a lengthy conversation with Jeff (and eventually Jordan) about teaming up.
