It's hard to build suspense on Big Brother
any more. The Power
of Veto is the only thing that can change the course of the week, but
since the competition was held over the weekend and the ceremony was
this morning, it's now just a long, boring wait until Thursday when we
all know exactly what's going to happen.
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains PoV ceremony results.
Michele won the PoV, took herself off the block, and Kevin replaced her with Jordan.
Yawn. We all knew this was coming the moment Michele won the PoV. So once again, we're in for a painfully dull time on Big Brother 11
as we march towards the inevitable and unfortunate eviction of Jeff.
Yes, the last decent player in this game is going to be evicted, and all Jeff's elimination accomplishes is ensuring that this season's winner will be among the least deserving in Big Brother
Jordan can't tell time or the difference between a peach and a nectarine, and it was only because Jeff had all the power for the past four weeks that she's still around. She didn't outwit anyone else, it's just that everyone else thinks she's a corn-fed hick who is too stupid to be any serious competition. And they're right.
Natalie keeps talking and acting like she's playing this master plan of appearing weak and keeping blood off her hands, but we haven't seen any proof that this is a real strategy. She's the only HG who has never won HoH or PoV, and she hid behind louder, crazier people the whole game, like Jessie, Ronnie and Chima. I don't think you should be rewarded for doing nothing.
Kevin was more worried about everyone liking him than actually playing the game. He didn't save his BFF Lydia when he had the chance because he was more concerned with staying off the radar than keeping his alliance in the house. That's an awful strategy, and it's even worse when you consider that people didn't come after him because he's a weak, effeminate gay guy who posed no real threat.
Finally, there's Michele, the only person left I could stomach winning. At the very least, she's won HoH once and PoV three times, making her this season's winningest HG. More importantly, she won two of the PoVs when she was nominated, showing that she's a clutch player.
However, all that is tempered with the fact that she's always crying and whining about how sad and alone she is. I truly hope it's an act for sympathy, but I doubt it. Instead, I suspect she's every bit as sad and pathetic as she seems, and the only reason she won those competitions was out of blind, random luck.
I firmly believe reality TV shows should be meritocracies. The people who win should be the ones who truly deserves it and who earned it, the ones who fought hard, struggled and proved they are worthy of being called a champion. Instead, if Jeff is evicted as we all know he will be, the final four of Big Brother 11
will be a nincompoop, a cry baby, and two scaredy cats.
