Entries in Lydia (40)
Besides Lydia, Chima, and Russell, the players are Jeff (chosen by Russell, much to Jessie's chagrin), Kevin, and Natalie. Michelle is also bummed that she's not playing, as she feels she'll go up if either of the nominees are taken down. It appears that it's one of those contests where each player goes out on his own to play, and then the winning time is determined after everybody plays.
After the players were chosen, Natalie had a little whisper with Russell telling him that he shouldn't worry as he's not going home. I wonder what "Scamper" has planned.
Lydia is not being shown on the feeds at all (diary room?), while Russell is trying to act like it's not bothering him...outside of a crack about being nominated "by my own team".
Russell is now up in the HOH "congratulating" his teammates (Chima, Natalie, and Jessie), and tells Chima not to feel bad. "I don't feel bad at all."
Apparently, the house had a visitor earlier today. When the cams came back on, Lydia was talking about how awesome it was to meet an "icon", and compared this person to Paul McCartney, Prince, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, etc.
Who did it turn out to be? Jeremy Piven.
Nothing against the star of Entourage, but he's no icon. Then again, we do live in an era where any female "singer" with a single moniker is labeled a "diva".
So Piven has a new movie, The Goods:Live Hard, Sell Hard, coming out next week and Big Brother is another promotional stop. Look for this footage to be aired Sunday night.
