Are Big Brother Fans Unrealistic In Their Expectations of The Houseguests After The Show?

So, Big Brother 11 has been over for about a month or so and the houseguests have been home, doing their own thing. They’ve been out and about, doing interviews, getting on Facebook/Twitter/Myspace and even making their own blogs. And the fans have been gobbling it up, every bit they can get.

I (Ahrean) can admit, I eat that up as well. I love it. I grab every nugget I can get and read it because I genuinely love hearing all I can. You almost feel like you are a part of their lives because they were a part of yours all summer long. However, as a fan, you have be realistic as well. And this sucks to say, but the houseguests most likely DON’T know you as individuals. They do care, in the sense that without the fans there wouldn’t have been  a show and without the show they wouldn’t have gotten the exposure they have now. BUT that doesn’t mean you get to place unrealistic expectations on them either.

Case in point. Jeff and Jordan.

Big Brother 11 – It Was The Summer of JeJo!!

Summer lovin’, had us a blast……..summer lovin’, happened so fast! Big Brother 11 is officially over and WOW, what a summer it was!  We had tears, laughter, fights galore, and an expulsion!

But one thing’s for sure, it was the summer of JeJo! Or, if you prefer, Jordeff. :) Jeff has to be, by far, one of the most popular houseguests ever to come on Big Brother, as is evidenced by his CDT win AND tonight’s America’s Choice Favorite Houseguest win. Jordan also shared her modem of popularity, as she won the America’s Choice Jury  Vote, which gave her the 5-2 win.

Jeff and Jordan weren’t your stereotypical showmance either. A showmance, by it’s very definition, is two people flirting and such in the Big Brother house, using each other to further themselves in the game while having no real romantic interest in each other. Jeff and Jordan, we truly believe, did have interest in each other and weren’t using each other. They truly cared for one another. Now that may not translate outside of the house but they had each other, in the game and outside the game as well…..in the human moments.

Natalie Cheats Again — Does She Get Away With It?

Last night was Part 1 of the 3 part final HOH competition. It started immeditaly after Michele Noonan’s eviction. The competition was called “Log Jam” and the concept was for the contestants to hang onto a key that was strung up over them, while walking on a log that spun.

They also had wind, leaves, rain, “snow” and even ice thrown at them; whilst production had fun making the log spin in different directions, at different paces and even stopping/starting it suddenly.

Now here’s the thing. At the start of the competition Julie Chen stated that the contestants had to have at least one hand HOLDING the key at all times, or they’d be disqualified. At various points during the competition, Natalie was observed shaking and flexing one hand, hanging on with the other BUT, if you take a look at the two pictures shown below, you’ll see that she was hanging onto the ROPE and NOT the key itself. It appears as though her pinky or glove was touching the key, BUT noone can tell us that this constitutes her actually hanging onto the key.

If America Gets a Vote At The End, Then America Should Get To Ask The Final Two A Question!

Thanks to our very own member YoYo for bringing this up in today’s lfu’s (post #17)! There are going to be six members of the Big Brother 11 jury, and thusly there’s a strong chance for a tie in the end voting, for the winner of Big Brother 11. This is due to Chima’s expulsion from the Big Brother house (thanks Chima! Your one accomplishment in the game, well wait, two. #1 – You’re no longer there and #2 – Because you’re not there, we get to cast your vote.).

So, since we, America, get to cast a vote too, in case of a tie presumably it made us wonder (after YoYo brought it up)……shouldn’t we get the full privileges of being a jury member? And that privilege?

How Natalie Will Lose Big Brother 11

Natalie Martinez, probably the most hated houseguest in Big Brother’s 11 season history, will not win Big Brother 11. America cheers!

How, you say, when she’s played such a brilliant manipulative, lying, scheming game, only really requiring her to win one competition so far? You say some might see that as true skill, something that should be honored with the 500K, even if she is destestable.
