Big Brother 11 Episode 28 was pretty much just filler. We found out that Kevin won the first part of the HOH competition and then Jordan won the second part of the HOH competition. Tonight we will find out who actually wins the final HOH, and from there the Big Brother 11 winner will be revealed.
Natalie just hopes Kevin sticks to his deal, but she tells him she thinks he’s going to take Jordan.
Kevin and Jordan both tell each other that they’re going to take each other, but she doesn’t think he’s going to pick her either. However, her actual plan is to take Natalie because she hasn’t won anything either.
Jordan tells Natalie that Kevin’s playing both sides. They both give their word that, if Kevin kicks either of them out, they’ll give the other one their vote. Natalie then warns Kevin that some people will vote personally, and she will be one of those people. If true, Natalie could quite easily tilt the jury to a tie, thereby putting it in America’s hands.
Jordan thinks she’s all growed up now that she’s spent this summer away from home (under the close watchful eye of Big Brother and 60 cameras).
Now it’s Michele’s turn to make her way to the jury house. Jeff’s shirtless as usual, and Russell’s facial hair continues to get more unfortunate (and Jessie is apparently trying to take after him). Jeff mostly just doesn’t want to see Jordan walk through that door. Russell hopes Michele is safe, since he became really close with her when he called her insane and suggested medication. The jury continues to bash Natalie, although it’s still not entirely clear why they’ve flipped on her, except that they probably didn’t like her in the first place (granted, there are a lot of sore losers in that house as well). Oh, and by the way, Natalie’s not really 18. Yeah, that’s what Michele thought. Oh, we believe you.
Now the jurors get together to debate the merits of the final three. Jessie never talked to Jordan. Jeff never talked to Kevin. So both of them should be able to make an informed decision. Lydia respects people who win. Guess what. You’re sitting next to those people. People who are stupid enough to win a lot in this house get voted out as threats. Jeff would like Lydia to get in her spaceship and leave. Jessie thinks that Kevin and Natalie outplayed Jordan. Jeff’s argument is that nobody ever voted Jordan out (because nobody ever viewed her as a threat). Russell views Jordan’s best move as attaching herself to Jeff. Other than that, she didn’t really do anything. Jeff refuses to say anything negative about Jordan; Lydia refuses to say anything negative about Kevin. Their votes are already made up. Russell thinks Natalie accidentally stumbled into her strategy of losing everything. Michele says Kevin was always working. Jeff apparently still thinks he should have won the game himself because he got a power handed to him by America.
It’s time for the third part of the final HOH competition, typically a guessing game about what jury members have said. Kevin and Jordan will compete for the power to decide their own fate.
Jessie said the best thing about being in the house was “The ladies. Oh yeah.” I don’t know. Not really a lot of hot girls to go around this season.
Kevin gets a point.
Lydia said the moment in the house that irritated her the most was “when Jeff got the coup d’etat.”
Jordan gets a point to tie it at 1-1.
Russell said if he could go back in time, he would change “How much I told Michele.”
Jordan is correct to take the lead 2-1.
Jeff said the fatal error he made in the house was “not winning my last POV.”
Kevin gets a point to tie it at 2.
With two fewer jury members, we’re already down to the final question. Michele said the houseguest who needs a reality check the most is Jessie.
Both are correct. Still tied.
Including tiebreaker votes, how many total votes to evict have been cast so far this season? A math question, sorta. And Jordan comes closest? That was. Uh. Unexpected. Jordan wins the final HOH.
Now Jordan has a choice to make. Does she take Natalie or Kevin to the final two with her? Jordan says that no matter what she’ll come in second place. She has chosen to evict Kevin.
So that leaves us with Natalie against Jordan. The jury has a tough choice here. It’s going to be tough to justify a vote for either of them. Between the two, I’d have to go with Natalie. She actually made a strategic effort, whereas Jordan mostly seemed to be along for the ride with Jeff.
As a group, the jury has come up with three questions each for Natalie and Jordan. Kevin will also be able to pick his own question since he had no involvement in that process.
Russell asks Jordan what her strategy was before and during the game. She wanted to lay low and not trust anyone. Then she found out she really couldn’t trust anybody, so she just decided to be herself (goofy, funny, and clueless).
Lydia asks Natalie who her biggest threat was, and what role she played in the eviction. Her answer is Lydia, who served as a potential wedge between her and Jessie.
Jeff asks Jordan what her best move was other than aligning with him. Getting rid of Kevin.
Michele asks why it was critical that she tell the jury Natalie’s engaged. Natalie’s answer: more than half the jury are her friends. Yeah, wait until you get out and find out what backstabbers they’ve been.
Jessie asks Jordan why she deserves to beat Natalie. Because she proved she could do it herself by winning the final hOH.
Russell asks Jordan why she deserves to win. Her strategy and allies worked hand in hand to ensure she stayed in the game without winning competitions.
Kevin gets to ask his own question. He asks Jordan what she did better than Natalie. Jordan pretty much just rambles.
Braden, Casey, Laura, and Ronnie return to discuss their thoughts about the season. As for Chima, she will be forgotten forever more, despite being one of the key catalysts to this season’s ratings boost.
Ronnie bows down to Natalie for her lying. She did a lot better being a rat than he did. Yeah, Natalie’s really 24, not 18. To which Kevin yells that he knew it, which he indeed did question on night one. Ronnie says that he’s bitter that he was the odd man out with Natalie.
Casey considers Jeff to have made the biggest mistake, getting rid of Russell and believing Kevin and Natalie’s lie. I don’t know. It wasn’t a complete lie (because it had some truth to it, even though it was made up), and if Jeff got rid of Kevin instead, Russell would have been stupid not to target Jeff the next week.
Braden calls Jessie the man, as if he needs an ego boost.
Julie takes the opportunity to let people stage an attack on Chima. Nobody will defend Chima’s actions, as planned.
Ronnie apologizes for calling Michele the worst person he’s ever met in his life.
Where does the Jeff and Jordan relationship go from here? I don’t know that it necessarily even started in the first place, but Jeff would like to see what happens on the outside. Jordan agrees.
By a vote of 5-2, the Big Brother 11 winner is Jordan Lloyd. I gotta go with worst winner ever award here, possibly runner up to season 8. Certainly a likeable girl, but it takes a hell of a bitter jury to award the game to someone who didn’t do anything.
The last prize to award tonight is obviously going to Jeff. He’s the winner of America’s Choice favorite jury member for $25,000.
Following this season’s success, it has been confirmed that there will be a Big Brother 12.
