Eviction Night: Chima vs. Braden
Last time, Russell won the all-important
Power of Veto and used it to save Lydia. Then fellow athlete Jessie
decided to put Braden on the block against pawn Chima. Now as eviction
looms, is the pawn truly safe?
Out in the front yard are Julie and a few
of her friends. It's Day 11 in the house, and already the athletes are
turning on each other, the brains aren't getting along, and an offbeat
has manipulated her way off the block.
We flashback to the veto, as Braden,
thanks to "today's events" is put on the block... and Ronnie dodging a
bullet. The best player since Will Kirby, and he's not on the block. He
calls it "gravy". Russell wants to cut off the head of the opposing
alliance of Jeff, Jordan, and Braden. Seems like Lydia is going to have
to owe Russell a big one. Jordan says that someone's starting stuff in
the house. Braden thinks it's Russell and Natalie. No one guesses
Braden had better start talking to
Meanwhile, Chima is feeling insecure as a
pawn, though she says that she'll lay low for a whole.
Lydia thinks about Jordan's actions, as
she wonders why no one cried for her when she was put up. Two possibles:
she forgot to or she wasn't your friend to begin with.
Russell is not convinced that he has
every vote that he needs to get Braden out of the house. He needs to
poke the bear with a pokey-stick. Braden goes after Lydia for "selling
him out" and goes after Kevin... because he's there. He calls Lydia a
bitch and a skank. Then things degenerate.
Jordan and Lydia go at it. Jordan claims
that she hasn't gone after her. Lydia just says that she is aligned with
Braden and that's all that matters. Jordan doesn't want people to feel
like she can be walked over. She was crying because she was a teammate.
Kevin says that if Jordan starts to kick it with Braden, it means that
she agrees with everything he stands for. Not cool.
Jeff goes inside to protect Jordan
from... herself, it looks like. Jeff says he defends Kevin, while Lydia
defends herself. Jeff charges Lydia that he sold him out. Lydia says
that she's done with this.
Meanwhile, Jordan starts to hatch a plan
to get Ronnie, Michele, and Casey to flip to the popular side. They go
with Ronnie to give up Chima. Ronnie thinks it's a good idea, but he's
always going to do what is best for himself in the game. Jordan
thinks it's working. She's going to Casey now. Casey ends up being a
swing, going to do what's best for him.
Going live to the living room, Russell
and Jeff address the veto competition. Russell doesn't expect a postcard
or regret anything that he did. Jeff says that if he doesn't have
anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Jordan and Lydia talk
about what set them all. Jordan just chalks it up to being angry. But
they're fine now.
Talking to HOH Jessie... He thinks that
the target's a little bit bigger than last summer when he played the
game the first time. A lot of deals get made the first week. Jessie says
that Russell is the brains of the group.
Now it's time for the first LIVE VOTE of
the summer. As a reminder, the nominees cannot vote, and Jessie only
votes in the case of a tie. Last words?
Braden: "I think each and every one of
you guys are incredible people. We made the best first week in Big
Brother History. I've made mistakes and I've made apologies, and we can
all respect that. Keep me around and I want to prove myself."
Chima: "It amazes me how short of our
memory spans are, because my opponent called two of my good friends
(audio deleted). So a vote for Braden is a vote for a bigot, and anyone
who aligns himself with a racist and a misogynist deserves to go home."
And now, the vote... The vote to evict is
Natalie: "I gladly vote to evict BRADEN."
Casey: "I vote to evict CHIMA's melodramatic behind."
Ronnie: "I'm going to hell. I vote to evict BRADEN."
And the vote is tied. The decision rests
with the HOH, Jessie. "BRADEN... I vote to evict you."
And Braden Bacha is the first player to
be evicted from Big Brother 11. He calls this the craziest house that he
could ever imagine. He is not surprised to be sitting where he is. Who
does he think sold him out? "Possibly could've been Ronnie, Michele, or
Casey." It was Ronnie. He's all about playing the game. One word to
describe the Big Brother experience... "Discombobulated."
