Midseasonreplacements gets an exclusive interview with Braden from Big Brother 11. What does he think of Ronnie? Did he think the speech Chima gave was a surprise? Is Jessie someone he feels should give as well as receive respectfulness in a respectful type manner? And how does he feel about him adding a WHOLE inch to his biceps!!! All that, well almost all that, and more after the jump.
Last night’s BB was shocking for many, many reasons. Chima, who’s basically what a troll doll becomes after college, delivered a speech memorable for having a chunk of it silenced by the censors. Based on context, I figured she had to be repeating some of the slurs that her co-nominee for eviction, Braden, had said during the week. In particular, he called both Lydia and Kevin “beaners,” which besides being bigoted, is not even the correct bigoted term for Kevin. He’s gay, black and Japanese. Just randomly, Brandon could have hit on a slur that was appropriate, and managed to fail anyway.
What I didn’t realize until tipped off by Firecat in our forums that Chima said, in part, “He called you a whore, Julie, yes he did!” (via the twitter of drunkenough, a member of the audience). WELL! No one calls the Chenbot a whore! It was all the more awkward as the Chenbot’s semi-human husband and CBS President was (allegedly) in the studio. The Chenbot stumbled a bit, but recovered. She didn’t mention the outburst during her exit interview with an extremely greasy looking Braden (who, by the way, did not apologize, possibly because he was ordered not to mention it.). I can only imagine she waited until taping ended before the laser beams shot out of her eyes and immolated Braden instantly. Test your lip-reading skills on the clip of Chima’s speech after the jump!
Last episode we left off with the return of Jesse, a walking assemblage of lunch meats and sulking. The other houseguests are all appalled, with the exception of fellow meat slab Russell. Not only is Jesse back to demand respect and dispense his tips for ab definition (hint: it involves working out), he’s HOH which means everybody has to pretend to like him. Good times. For us, I mean. It sucks roid-shriveled balls for everyone in the house.
Summer means so many things: softball games, barbeques, swimming, long walks on warm evenings, the beach. I’m sorry, I meant to say that’s what summer means to LOSERS: twisted ankles, third-degree burns, leeches, west nile virus, and shark attacks. No thanks. Us smart folk know that summer means staying away from the big room with no cable, and hunkering down to watch Big Brother. We’ll be covering with our usual clockwork like precision, including live blogs (Tuesday!). Be sure to check out the fantabulous live feed coverage by honeybunny and plethlaura in our forums (spoilers!).
Midseasonreplacements gets an exclusive interview with Dan. No more censored structured CBS email interviews. 10 minutes on the phone where I can ask about Ollie cumming, Jerry being a hypocrite and Ollie being dumb enough to believe he would keep his deal. I actually came away really liking him, as he seemed to “get” the show and what you have to do to win it more than most. read it all after the jump…
Midseasonreplacements gets another exclusive, and tightly controlled, interview with Jerry. I had hoped they would ask my question calling him out on his double standards regarding double-crossing Brian and then calling Dan a Judas when he did the same to Jerry, but alas it wasn’t asked. Fear not for I will get a phone interview with the winner of Big Brother 10 next week and in order to spice up our talk with Jerry, I interspersed it with some noises that I only assume Jerry was making as he was answering these questions.
Midseasonreplacerments gets another exclusive (and tightly controlled) interview with Keesha. Why does she play with nothing but her emotions? Why didn’t she listen to Renny and GO AFTER MEMPHIS BECAUSE HE IS WALKING AWAY WITH THIS GAME!?!
(pause to catch my breath)
All that and more in our interview…
It’s been a good week to be a BB recapper. First, thanks to B-Side, I get the opportunity to attend last Thursday’s taping of BB. A joy mixed with the sadness of watching Renny go, spiked with the annoyance of b-side’s audience nemesis, Shelly. If that’s not enough, MSaRtist superstah SpecialK, got me tickets to the Tuesday show. Join me as I recap Tuesday’s eviction of Keesha with my account of BB live and in person, because I am too lazy to do two posts.
