BB11 Daily Recap September 3, 2009
As is typical for Thursdays, it was been a very quiet day in the BB house, with no substantial game talk.
Nothing happened in the house today that goes against the consensus of most feed watchers that Jeff will be evicted tonight. Jeff was nervous, but kept himself in check most of the day by playing solitaire and taking out his frustrations on the cards. Just before 2:00 pm BBT, Jeff was alone with Jordan in the GR, and he let his temper go, but it was for a very short time, and he brought himself back under control pretty quickly. Jeff also told Jordan a little after noon that he was “kinda excited” about going home.
Note: Overall, there was very little talk, or even contact between Jeff and Jordan today. Most of the day, Jeff spent alone playing solitaire.
9:00 am BBT….It’s a normally quiet morning in the BB house…About 9:50, Nat gets up and warms up her microwavable heating pad for her stomach, then goes back to bed.
10:00 am BBT….The official BB wake-up call comes a little after 10:00 am…The HGs don’t get up immediately—although the lights are on in the SS room, the RR stays dark…Around 10:15, Michele walks through the kitchen, possibly to get new batteries for the day...Jeff is up and rolls his luggage from the SS room to the storage room, then gets himself some breakfast…Soon after, we see Jordan up in the SS room, wearing her pinkish/peach hoodie, zipping up her suitcase. The lights in the RR are still out…Michele is still in bed, but awake, and watching quietly.
Around 10:25, Jordan is in the kitchen getting some juice. She passes by Jeff, but doesn’t say anything…Nat comes in and heads for the microwave to heat up her heating pad…Jeff/Jordan go back to bed. Jordan is sitting up, playing with her hair, and drinking juice….Nat heads to HOH…Nat rings for Kevin to answer the door. No answer. There is still no answer as BB calls for Kevin to get up and change his batteries…In the SS room M/J/J are awake, but lying down and thinking. At some point, Jeff/Michelle appear to fall asleep…Kevin still doesn’t answer his door as Nat knocks… Nat finally gives up, and lies on the sofa outside HOH, with her blanket over herself…In the SS room, nothing is happening, but Jordan looks sad.
About 10:40, Kevin finally pops out of the HOH room and Nat demands that they go back into the HOH….However, Nat will not have Kevin to herself, because it appears that the usual Thurs. morning HOH lockdown has begun…Kevin goes downstairs for a minute to get juice, and Nat makes herself comfy in the HOH bed, using a lot of the blankets….Jordan walks by Kevin in the kitchen but doesn’t speak to him…Michele and Jeff go straight up to the HOH room, and Michele lies on the floor with her blankets…Jordan goes to the HOH WC and grabs a bunch of TP to blow her noise. Kevin is in bed listening to his CD.
As is typical for Thursdays, the HOH lockdown is very quiet…Jordan is resting in the big round chair and Jeff sits on the floor next to her playing solitaire. It appears that Kevin may be staring at Jeff.
11:00 am BB….The HOH lockdown continues…Jeff gives up solitaire and lies down on the floor under his blanket. Jordan asks Jeff if he wants to join her on the round chair, and Jeff says, “No thanks, Jordan.”…But about 11:25, Jordan goes to lie down on the floor next to Jeff.
The HOH lockdown ends at about 11:50…All the HGs, including Kevin, leave the HOH, although Nat apparently briefly says something to Kevin, but we don’t know what….Jordan/Jeff make themselves something to eat. Kevin is bringing his clothes from the HOH room to the RR.
About noon, Kevin goes into the storage room and gets out the vacuum cleaner. But, he doesn’t do much vacuuming—at first, only the decorative rug in front of the sofa in the LR and the rug that is in front of the HOH pictures, and he vacuums very slowly…Nat has gone back to bed….J/J are in the kitchen. Jeff is fixing what appears to be ground meat. There is no talk between Jeff/Jordan—not mad or sad, just “hangin.”…Then, as Jeff cooks, Kevin slowly vacuums the kitchen area behind the counter and around the stove.
As Jeff is cooking, Jeff/Jordan finally talk. (I’m assuming Kevin has left, but it’s not clear from the Updates.)…Jeff tells Jordan (who is doing dishes) that is “kinda excited” about going home. Jordan tells Jeff that he’ll be stress-free. Jordan says that she doesn’t want to be in the jury house with “them” and goes through the list of names of people in the jury house that she doesn’t want to be around. (Ed note: The updates don’t list the names, so I don’t know who she mentioned.)…J/J also comment that the jury house is big. Jeff says it won’t be so bad, that they’ll have movies to watch. And they can look forward to bashing the next person that comes in…Jordan starts to speculate on what Russel will say but Jeff interrupts her.... "yeh he'll... " then she interrupts Jeff. Basically they’re saying nothing, apparently just reading each other's mind as to how Russell will react and how they in turn should react to him….At 12:26 Jeff is called to the DR.
Jordan goes to take a shower…Michele is already in the WC applying make-up. Michele is wearing a red halter dress. As part of her make-up routine, Michele shaved her upper lip….Jeff isn’t in the DR for very long, and is back at the table alone eating by 12:40…Two of the feeds show Nat still sleeping…Michele joins Jeff at the table eating something, but there is no conversation between them, and when Jeff finishes eating, and washing his dishes, he leaves the kitchen….Jeff goes to the SS room and plays solitaire. Michele comes in and asks Jeff, “Are you winning today?” (meaning at solitaire), but Jeff says in a resigned way, “No, it’s not a winning day for me.”…Jordan is in the WC, out of the shower, and applying make-up. She’s wearing a red T-shirt, and cami pants.
1:00 pm BBT….About 1:20, Michele and Jordan are in the kitchen, talking about the upcoming HOH comp, with Michele saying, “Our fate will be decided soon.”….Then they talk about make-up and pimples..Jordan says the thought of walking out the door with an audience there makes her nervous, but it is also more exciting than if there was no audience. Michele talks about how it will be weird to have fans…In the SS room, Jeff is swearing at his cards….Michele says her clothes aren’t as loose as they were before, apparently implying that she’s regained some of the weight she lost in the house…Michele compliments Jordan on her eyes…They also talk about how they forget that they are on a TV show with cameras 24/7—that they’ve gotten used to the ritual and mics….Meanwhile, in the background, Jeff mumbles in frustration at another loss at solitaire.
Talk returns to comps…Jordan tells Michele she has been studying in her head over and over…Both M/J think it will be another “step up/step down” competition. Michele says that if the comp has steps or something, be quiet, and take your shoes off…Jordan agrees and says she could hear Michele on the steps (in the HOH that Jordan won). Michele says she was wearing clunky shoes…But, Jordan says she wasn’t paying attention to Michele, and was in the “zone.” Jordan says she likes it better when she is focuses, and gets “psyched out” if she looks around. Jordan says that “True or false” questions always get her because (BB) twists words around…Both Michele and Jordan agree that they just want to get the HOH and POV comps over with….After washing her dishes, Jordan leaves the room. Michele stands up and looks around, as if she is trying to figure out what to do with herself.
Jordan comes into the SS to check on Jeff. Jeff asks Jordan what she’s doing and she says, “Nothing.” Jeff tells her to prepare for the HOH comp. There isn’t any other major conversation between them…One one feed we see Kevin asleep in the RR…It appears that Nat may be in the RR, too, but it isn’t clear whether she is asleep, because it sounds like Jordan just said something, probably to Nat. (The RR cameras are on Kevin, and don’t include Nat.)…Jordan goes into the bathroom, and comes back and hands Jeff something saying, “Take this with you, it will give you something to do.” Michele, who is lying on her bed, laughs. We don’t see what Jordan handed Jeff, but it sounds like it might be some of her tooth whitening stuff, since Jeff responds that now his teeth will be nice and white…Jordan sits on her bed..Jeff is still frustrated because he keeps losing at solitaire.
In the RR, Kevin appears to be waking up from his nap…Nat is messing with blankets on one of the beds—can’t see whether it is her bed or someone else’s…Then Nat whispers to Kevin (who is half-asleep and doesn’t even make a facial expression to respond to her…A little later, we see Nat sitting on her bed, messing with a deck of cards….Nat/Kevin get up and go to the kitchen….Jordan has moved to the Green Room, where she is lying alone….It looks like Kevin is making pancakes. Nat stands next to Kevin, elbow to elbow. Nat then says she doesn’t like pancakes. Kevin is surprised, and says, “Really?”
As it approaches 2:00 pm, Jeff has gotten frustrated with solitaire, and joins Jordan in the Green Room…Jordan says she is wearing a pinkish coral dress or should they both wear black? Jeff replies, “Nobody is dying, that’s for sure!”…Jordan lies there quietly, with her eyes open…Jeff sits by her feet, leaning over her with his hands on her calves, just looking at her….Jordan sits up and fusses with her hair, and comments on using Jeff’s hairspray.
Jeff, who has been pretty cool until now (except for yelling at his cards), repeatedly tells Jordan to “Go for it,” and calls all the others “mother f*ckers and scumbags.” Among other things, Jeff says that when he gets to the jury house, he will tell the mother*ckers not to even look at him……Jordan just listens, and doesn’t respond….After some more name calling, and being PO’d, Jeff says he needs to get in the shower…Jordan follows him out, puts her hoody on, comes back to the green room for a piece of paper that fell on the floor (Ed. Note: Jordan’s letter from home is my guess.)….Jordan puts the piece of paper on the shelf in the WC, then heads toward the kitchen….On her way to the kitchen, she stops behind a wall in the LR. Jeff, passing her, asks what she is doing, and Jordan says, “Nuthin.” (Ed note: Spying on Nat/Kev?...The feeds switch to the SS where Jeff is getting clothes from his dresser, and we see Michelle in bed.
2:00 pm BB…A little after 2:00, Jeff/Jordan are both in the WC….Jeff asks Jordan, “What did they say?” (Ed note: It’s not clear if Jordan asked the DR a question or if Jordan talked to Kev/Nat.)…Jeff is shaving….Jordan is still in the WC, but out of view. At one point, Jeff asks Jordan if his neckline is straight….Jeff/Jordan continue to chit chat….Nat/Kev are sitting at the kitchen counter eating.
At 2:11, the feeds go to trivia, and remain on trivia as the 3:00 hour begins. Usually, this trivia lasts until the live show begins, although sometimes the feeds come back for a short time before the live show. However, normally this short period of live feeds is just the HGs getting ready, etc. and doesn’t include substantial strategy talk, etc.
