Big Brother 11
is underway, which means it's time for TV episodes that are days behind the actual stuff going on inside the house. Thanks to the 24/7 live feeds, fans following online already know what happens when Jessie enters the house, who he nominated, who the players for the Power of Veto competition are, who won the PoV and whether the PoV was used or not. People who only watch TV just get to see a pregnant Julie Chen use the term ":super wedgie.:
This isn't to say Big Brother 11
doesn't have some intrinsic value on TV. Past seasons have taught us that the editors have a whimsical sense of humor, and they look for ways to put scenes together to make these houseguests look as foolish as possible. And believe me, those editors earn every penny they make.
As soon as Jessie walks into the Big Brother
house, Kevin and Lydia instantly hate him. Jessie's idiotic showboating doesn't help matters. Somehow the steroids have depleted even more brain cells in the past year. Ronnie tries to bond with Jessie while also claiming he's smarter than the meathead. Um, newsflash Ronnie, a papaya is smarter than Jessie.
Lydia can barely muster the words to suck up to Jessie when he claims his dream is to become a WWE wrestler. First, he's too short, and second, the WWE already has a former reality star with Mike Mizanin from The Real World
. Lydia comes back with a Zeus reference that almost certainly goes over Jessie's head. Jessie reveals that being the first Head of Household is bittersweet because everyone hates you. People would hate Jessie anyway.
Ronnie whines about how hard high school was for him, but his "Dork" shirt and crappy faux hawk aren't helping matters. Jordan pretends that she treats everyone equally, which I know is a lie.
Ronnie decides to be the first doucehbag of the game by going up to Jessie's HoH room and selling out his Brainiac teammates to save himself. When he used Revenge of the Nerds
as a metaphor, I was amused, but then he used Star Wars
, and I'm already done with Ronnie as a human being in this game.
People may have called Ronnie a dork in high school based solely on his appearance, but if they got to know him, they'd still think he was a dork.(1) (2) (3) NEXT>>
