The 'Big Brother 11' HGs = 'Winnie the Pooh' Characters
The 'Big Brother 11' HGs = 'Winnie the Pooh' Characters

Back when Darth Ronnie was terrorizing the Big Brother 11 house and leading the Dark Side, I compared all the HGs to specific Star Wars characters.  At the time I thought the alliances and basic characters were spot on and fit perfectly.

Now, with only six HGs remaining, I have a new theory.  The Big Brother house isn't a galaxy far, far away.  It's the Hundred Acre Wood.

Yes, like a man with a key on his umbrella, I was struck by a flash of genius when I put it all together and saw that the final six HGs for Big Brother 11 are all exactly like famous characters from A.A. Milne's children's classic, Winnie the Pooh.

Kevin = Piglet
This was the very first one that popped into my head.  Kevin is a hopelessly needy and whiny character who is so desperate to be loved that he'll do whatever it takes, even not using the PoV on his BFF.  He's also quite feminine with his voice and mannerisms, a la Piglet.

The turning point came when Kevin was so worried about lying to Jeff regarding Russell's betrayal, but he summoned the courage and after he did it, he was ecstatic and so giddy.  It was a very Piglet thing to do.

Russell = Tigger
Obviously Jessie would make a much better Tigger, but since he's no longer in the house, Russell will have to do.  Much like his cocky cartoon counterpart, Russell bounces all around the house from one alliance to another.  He's also loud and in your face, and he's not afraid to suggest that being aligned with Russell is a wonderful thing because he's so fantastic.

Michele = Owl
Having a Ph.D. alone is enough to make her Owl, but it gets even more interesting when you see that, despite her perceived intellect, she seems to alienate everyone around her and many evicted HGs think she's crazy, or stupid or the worst person in the world.  Sorry Owl, but I would not take advice from you on this game.

Natalie = Eeyore
Just two short weeks ago, Natalie wasn't even close to being Eeyore.  But after Ronnie, Jessie, Chima and Lydia all got the boot, Natalie has nothing and no one.  The world is so unfair to her, and she's just a sad lonely person who can barely muster the energy to fight in the house anymore.  Sounds just like Eeyore to me.

Jordan = Winnie the Pooh
To start with, Jordan is an adorable and delightful person who is extremely likeable, just like Pooh Bear.  She's also a rather simple person who doesn't like to get bogged down in details or specifics.  She just wants to live her life and have fun.  In addition, I could easily imagine a scenario in which Jordan gets her head stuck in a honey pot.

Jeff = Christopher Robin
The Big Brother house is full of odd cartoon characters, but Jeff is not one of them.  He's a clean-cut, all-American everyman who is taking an adventure into this magical land and doing his best not to rile any of the strange creates he encounters.  If you listen closely, when Jordan says something stupid like her inability to read a clock, you can almost hear Jeff mutter to himself "Silly old Jordan."

So now who will win Big Brother 11?  Will Christopher Robin graduate or get expelled?  Will Eeyore finally find some happiness?  Will Piglet find courage, will Tigger find common sense and will Owl get a clue?  Or will the tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff win it all?
