'Big Brother 11' Recap: Star Wars - Episode I: The Russell Menace
'Big Brother 11' Recap: Star Wars - Episode I: The Russell Menace
A not-so-long time ago in a Big Brother house far, far away...

Welcome to an all Star Wars-themed recap of Big Brother 11!  Darth Ronnie joined the Dark Side (aka Jessie, Russell, Natalie, Lydia, Kevin and Chima) while turning his back on the Force (Jeff, Jordan, Laura, Casey and Michele).  Therefore, I'm going geek and doing a special Star Wars recap.  However, write not like Yoda I will, or aching your head will be.

Before getting into it, let me introduce the cast:

The Force:
Jeff Solo: The hero and leader of the Force
Casey-bacca: His trusty sidekick and comic relief
Queen Jordan-dala: The beautiful female leader
Princess Laura: The strong, independent woman
Michele Windu: The brains of the operation who still has a connection to Ronnie

The Dark Side:
Darth Ronnie: Formerly Ronakin Skywalker, he has turned against the Force and now fights for the Dark Side
Emperor Russell-tine: The insidious manipulator who tricks Darth Ronnie into joining his side
Jessie the Hut: The large disgusting useless object in the house
Grand Moff Kevin: A mindless pilot who goes along for the ride
Lydia Calrissian: The one who first betrayed her friends and sold out Braden to the Dark Side
Natalie Fett: The loyal servant who brings things to Jessie
General Chima-us: The evil, bitchy droid leader


After the nomination ceremony, Darth Ronnie's true motives are revealed.  Princess Laura is furious and upset because she was the only one smart enough to defeat Darth Ronnie.  Jeff Solo acts as though his nomination is no big deal, but Darth Ronnie isn't done playing around.

He tells Jeff Solo and Princess Laura that he has a master plan to use the Power of Veto to turn the tables back to their side.  The force is strong with you, young Padawan.

But Emperor Russell-tine still has a few tricks up his sleeve.  He cozies up to the Force and wants to stop talking about the game, so when he goes inside, he explodes on Lydia for talking about the game.  Is this a real crack in his armor and alliance, or is he trying to find support from the Force since he knows he already has the Dark Side?

Lydia Calrissian is still upset over the Emperor's outburst, so like always, she wants to betray her friends and backdoor him.  Oh Lydia, don't you know that aligning yourself with Darth Ronnie never ends well.
