The first week of Big Brother 11
was filled with excitement. There was
gameplay, alliances, betrayal, backdooring, a racist outburst and
plenty of self-righteous pomposity. How can they possibly expect to
keep this up all season long?
The second week of Big Brother 11
might just hold the key, as its
full-steam ahead on all cylinders. With nerd Ronnie as the Head of
Household, the man who thinks he's the ultimate player now has an even
bigger head, and if you're looking for someone who thinks Ronnie and
his alliance of holier-than-thou imbeciles are great, go somewhere
else. I'm 100 percent on Jeff, Jordan and Laura's side, which means
this is going to be a very bad week for me.
There's something disgustingly ironic for CBS to go from an hour-long tribute to Walter Cronkite straight into an episode of Big Brother
. First we got to see everything that was once right about television and this country, and that's followed by what the state of TV has become.
The remaining houseguests smell something rotten in the state of Braden-mark. Lydia and Chima are quick to boast and brag about how wonderful they are and how righteous they are.
That's quickly followed by Ronnie winning HoH and comparing himself to Darth Vader. He thinks he can safely play both sides by blaming Michele for the switched vote. The problem is that Ronnie is a terrible liar and Laura is 100 percent certain it's him, but because has all the power, no one can call him out on it.
What makes it all worse is that Ronnie thinks he has everyone convinced it was Michele, and Russell is in awe of how brilliant his play is. It's like an insane asylum, where the delusional mental patients all think they're the doctors.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that poor, sweet Michele gets her head chewed off by a super-bitchy Chima, who is as unstable as a one-legged man. She's furious that her clique-mate voted for her to leave, not realizing that other than the artificial cliques that Big Brother created, Chima is of absolutely no value to Michele (or society, for that matter).
Laura tries to spread some goodwill by explaining her theory about Ronnie's constant deception to Chima, Lydia and Kevin about. Apparently it's wrong for Laura to talk about Ronnie behind his back, but he can meet up with his clique of freaks, geeks and jocks to talk smack about Laura.
Ronnie's HoH room features a giant bubble wand and the original cast recording for Legally Blonde: The Musical
. Jeff and Casey respond appropriately, with open-mouthed disgust. I only say that because Ronnie is supposed to be a huge nerd and it should be the Battlestar Galactica
soundtrack so he can listen to Bear McCreary's "All Along with Watchtower.". In reality, the Legally Blonde
soundtrack is awesome and I wish I was listening to it right now.(1) (2) (3) NEXT>>
