Lydia cozies up to Russell, and the jock throws Natalie under the bus, claiming Natalie was the one who wanted Lydia to be nominated. Lydia is a terrible actress who can barely stomach being around someone as dumb as Russell, but he thinks he's super smooth and he's manipulating her.
Luckily for her, the jocks are all idiots who can be easily tricked into thinking that taking Lydia off and putting up Braden is a "bomb ass" move. It's shameful how smart Jessie, Russell and Natalie think they are.
Russell explains the plan to Ronnie and asks him not to say anything. So Ronnie, being a weasel and house gossiper, tells Jeff and Jordan about the plan, and they go tell Braden. Russell confronts Ronnie about whether he told Braden, and Ronnie denies it with the most unbelievable denial ever. Sorry, but even a dumb meathead jock can see through that crappy acting job.
It's now official - Ronnie is the absolute worst player in Big Brother history. Playing both sides is a tricky needle to thread, and as smart as he thinks he is and as great a persuasive speaker he believes he is, Ronnie is just too socially inept to pull it off.
By virtue of the fact that they've had almost no screentime thus far, I'd say Jordan, Casey, Kevin and Michele are playing the smartest game. For that matter, so was Braden until the idiots running the asylum read too much into his Zen-like state of nothingness.PoV Ceremony:
Lydia's blatant manipulation paid off, and she tricked the jocks into believing Braden is a huge threat. Russell takes Lydia off the block which, as I asked you to remember from the PoV competition, is what Russell considered the worst possible scenario. Jessie replaces her with Braden, who is very nonchalant and relaxed about the whole thing. Wait, did they forget to show us the luxury competition where Braden won a bag of pot?
So who goes home, Chima or Braden? And who will be the next HoH? Find out Thursday at 8pm on CBS.<<PREVIOUS (1) (2) (3)
