Big Brother 11′s Jeff and Jordan Confirmed To Be A Team Competing On The Amazing Race 16!

Okay, so Jeff from Big Brother 11 is known to be a semi-regular Tweeter, so suspicions arose amongst his followers earlier this week when he hadn’t sent a tweet since 11/22. Then sightings of him and Jordan, wearing identical blue in NC, being filmed by a crew in an unmarked van started swirling about, plus a suspicious visit to the CBS lot the last time they were in L.A. with no reason given for it (i.e. some BB thing, etc, which obviously would’ve been announced).

Then just today Season 16 of the Amazing Race kicked off with filming in L.A. and you guessed it, internet spoilers started a’flowin, including team sightings at LAX and one of those teams was Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd from Big Brother 11! Fans have clamored for them to be on TAR and their popularity with viewers this summer is undisputable. Check in with our TAR 16 forum here for all the latest news, gossip and spoilers!

But first, ;), how about a picture of them at LAX? (Check our forum for more!)

Precious: based on the novel Push by Sapphire

[singlepic id=173 w=240 h=320 float=left]In one word: wow.

The critics of this movie are all shining about Mo’Nique as the evil, selfish, lazy mother to Clareece (Precious) Jones; as well they should.

Mo’Nique is unrecognizable as the abusive mother of Precious, played by newcomer Gabourey Sidibe. You can barely associate her with the sassy/sexy/humorious comedienne that we’re all used to.

You want to throw her ignorant mother down a few flights of stairs after she just got done being chased around in a fish tank by a hungry, angry great white shark!  Yes, Mo’Nique makes you hate her. But it’s Mary, Precious’ mother, who you want to see burn on a stake while medievil prayers are chanted to save her soul. Mary’s very ignorance of life and need to “stay on the welfare” will have you saying “Oh no!” all throughout the film. When she plays nice for a visiting social worker, it’s quite humorous.

Star Trek on DVD

[singlepic id=172 w=240 h=320 float=left]Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana & John Cho. They are only a part of the group that make 2009’s Star Trek a wonderful success. Everyone played their parts so well that, even though a couple of characters were obvious, you KNEW who the rest of them were.

Chris Pine is great as James T. Kirk: he has the flirtatiousness, arrogance and egotistical charm that William Shatner gave the character so many years ago.

Zachary Quinto is a perfect Spock:  he brings the seriousness, intelligence & stern need for duty that Leonard Nimoy brought to Spock’s character in the 60’s.

Zoe Saldana plays a very young, upbeat Uhura. Sexy, smart & energetic sides of Uhura that we rarely saw in Nichelle Nichols are portrayed as a playful, but serious Zoe as the communications specialist.

There’s nothing that’s cheesy about this movie; you don’t roll your eyes in your head at any lines and no uncomfortable moments with sexy scenes.  The humor is there, but only in the right moments.

I was grateful enough to see this movie at an IMAX theater, so it was no surprise that I’d invest in the DVD…even if buying it for my mother was a good excuse.
