Today’s big event is the POV competition and the prizes and penalties involved.
After Lydia and Jessie had sex, they finally fell asleep around 5:40 a.m. They have a little trouble sleeping and then have to wake up just before 9:00 a.m. (See my article More Sex in the BB11 House – Lydia & Jessie).
When Lydia gets downstairs, she says she dreamed she was having sex last night and Chima said “I like that dream.” Jessie does not want to get up yet, but Producers tell him his light has to stay on during the day.
Casey is telling Jeff and Kevin what Producers told him last night when he shaved off his goatee. As they are characters on television, if they have significant facial hair, they have to get permission before they are allowed to shave it off. It probably wreaks havoc with their editing when they decide not to show things that happened in the house until a future episode.
Twenty minutes after their wake up call, Producers are yelling at Russell to get up out of bed.
Casey asked Jordan if she knew what time Lydia came downstairs to go to sleep last night, since Jordan did not have the answer, she asked Lydia. Lydia told her she slept a little bit upstairs and a little bit downstairs.
Russell gets yelled at again five minutes later for staying in bed. He finally gets up a few minutes later.
Natalie and Jessie are upstairs in the HOH talking and Natalie is trying to tell Jessie what to do. She keeps telling him they are Co-HOH and she should have some say and benefits. Jessie reminds her that HE is HOH. Jessie had been telling her that he wants Ronnie to host the POV Competition, but Natalie wants to host it.
Jessie is called to the Diary Room at 10:10 a.m., so they are probably about to pick players for the Competition.
After players are picked, it takes awhile to figure out who is playing. The first thing we learn is that Natalie got her wish and she is hosting. The players are: Jessie, Jordan, Michele, Casey, Jeff and Chima.
Because everyone thinks it does not matter who wins the POV Competition, Jeff tells Casey and Russell that he is taking prizes that are offered. Elsewhere, Jessie is telling Natalie that they only have a one in six chance of getting their way and winning the POV.
Everyone waits around as they call everyone in to the Diary Room to get interview footage before the Competition. The POV Competition finally begins at 1:20 p.m. and lasts three hours. Michele won and everyone is being called back into the Diary Room for their post competition interview footage.
Michele tells Jessie she will protect him next week. They won a margarita party for the house, Jessie won $2500.00 and Chima is stuck wearing the red unitard this season. There was a lot of mud involved and Jeff wonders how they will get it all out of the backyard. Casey is relegated to wearing a yellow suit he calls “The Banana Suit.”
When Ronnie comes out of the Diary Room he tells everyone that the Have Nots are not allowed to participate in the margarita party. Everyone is concerned how Chima will react because it is on her birthday.
Lydia and Jessie go upstairs and get in bed together. Natalie follows them up a minute later and plops down on the bed opposite Jessie and ignore Lydia. Jeff comes upstairs soon afterward and all four of them fall asleep.
Ronnie has gotten yelled at twice today for sleeping in the living room, so he goes into the Have Not room by himself and reads his Bible.
The next several hours is all random chit chat and lots of sleeping.
When Kevin and Lydia get together to talk just before 8:00 p.m., they have noticed how the Diary Room sessions are trying to stir things up between Lydia and Natalie. Lydia says she is sick of hearing Natalie’s voice.
Lots of random talking until the subject of abortion comes up. Chima says if she found out her baby had down syndrome, she would abort it. Natalie has a sister with downs syndrome. They talk about multiple births and how sometimes you have to get rid of a few, so the other survive. Jessie is getting uncomfortable with the conversation and gets up to leave. He tells Jeff he does not want to be a part of this conversation and Jeff agrees. Jessie says it is going down a bad road.
Michele made a nice dinner for everyone, even though she is a Have Not this week. They all eat just before 11:00 p.m.
Casey is beginning to suspect something is up and tells Kevin they need to get rid of an athlete. He keeps walking around in his banana suit making comments about how Ronnie has to go.
Michele eavesdrops in on Lydia and Jessie’s conversation. Jessie was just telling her how Kevin told him and Natalie that they are becoming a target because of their closeness.
Chima and Russell continue to get close with Chima sitting on Russell’s lap outside during the wee hours of the morning.
Lydia and Jordan talk themselves to sleep just before 5:00 a.m. while Natalie, Jessie, Chima and Kevin sit outside the HOH talking. Casey is getting annoyed with his banana suit and stands in the bathroom staring at himself in it. Everyone finally goes to bed at 6:15 a.m. Lydia sneaks upstairs and gets in bed with Jessie at 7:30 a.m.
