'Big Brother 11' Live Feed Update: Public Effigies
Being on a TV show, the HGs are worried about how good they look to the viewers.  Some of us definitely have our favorites this season, but there's one special thing that binds them all together - paranoia.  With five left in the Big Brother house, there's so much more the spotlight can accommodate.

There's very little left to do for the hamsters.  They could all turn into zombies and we wouldn't even notice.  It's all small talk for now, and the topic for the day is how they'll be portrayed on television.

The conversation starts off with the guys talking about how this season is the most "hooked up" with prizes.  They got plenty of extra cash and one of them even got a trip to Hawaii, so they're certainly grateful.  Still, they can't help but wonder if it's all because they manage to pull in ratings.  Hmm, anyone care to disagree?

I think one of the main reasons why this season seems like such a big deal is the simple fact that the show's Big Brother.  The personalities of the houseguests are sort of a side dish to the whole phenomena.  Every year the viewers hope that the new installment tops the previous, but this time it's somewhat of a disappointment.  Hey, even Jeff thinks so.

When Michele asks if they're really getting the attention of viewers, he says he just can't see why.  He doesn't understand "why people want to watch me bitch all day."  Some of us might share the same sentiments, though that doesn't change how voyeuristic the masses have become.  There's a limited amount of privacy in technology, and soon that little speck will be wiped out.

Anyway, I should stop digressing.  Michele tells them that she thinks the season would be "awesome" if she wasn't there.  Wow, she's really riding that self-pity wagon.  Jeff seems to have the right idea, as he claims putting a "bunch of whiny bitches" in a house "will just take care of itself."  Well, we all know that's the point of the show.

Michele also comments about all the drama and the fights, saying how entertaining they must be to see.  Later that day, Jordan and Jeff talk about how their family might view them as they've witnessed their behavior on the live feeds too.

Jordan thinks her mom might be getting excited about Jeff.  "I know she'd say something," she says.  "She will not like Russell."  Jordo also believes that her dad wants to "jump through that TV and choke him."  Maybe Jeff can do that for his possibly future dad-in-law?

The ex-Wizard's mistress later discusses how Chima's family must feel about the Shotgun.  They then talk about how acting like an a-hole all the time will definitely show on television.  Then again, they didn't see Russell's calm exit from the house.

"The show is blowing my mom's mind," Jeff says.  He knows how she wouldn't like all the lying, and isn't too anxious about how he'll be portrayed.

"I'm kinda scared what my mom thinks," admits Jordan.  She might be played as the "dumb one" but she hopes she's seen as someone who's "laid-back kinda fun."  Still, Jeff assures her that she isn't that stupid (but she can't even tell time!) and certainly no bitch.  That's probably because it takes brains to be really good at that.
