Today’s wake up call came at 9:30 a.m. and none of the early birds were awake yet. Lydia and Jessie had gotten to bed last, as usual, at 4:00 a.m.
First thing, Jessie and Chima talk about Jessie thinks Russell was lying yesterday about what he overheard because Lydia’s story matched Ronnie’s. Jessie has been helping Jordan work out and he tells Chima he is going to get Jordan sore today so she cannot compete in the HOH Competition, which they all believe will be an endurance challenge.
Natalie joins Chima and Jessie at 10:30 a.m. and tells them Casey is trying to rally votes. Natalie says it makes sense for Lydia and Kevin to vote to keep Casey because he is in their clique.
Everyone shortly falls back to sleep except Lydia, Casey and Jeff, who are all out in the backyard. There is absolutely nothing going on and Jeff ends up crawling into bed with Jordan to snuggle while she sleeps. The only interesting thing that happened was Casey went in to stare at Ronnie sleeping.
Jeff gets back up a few minutes later and Russell gets up. It is noon and almost everyone is sleeping. Russell, Casey and Jeff play a game of baseball. Russell hits a ball completely out of the backyard and Casey throws a ball at the wall. They switch to playing catch and Russell accidentally hits Lydia in the head and she gets mad and throws a fit. When Jessie gets called to the Diary Room, he accidentally locks himself out of the HOH room.
Jessie got his HOH Camera and they all pose for photos. For a photo, Russell jumps in the pool and Producers yell at him. He just got a concussion for diving in the pool the other day.
The afternoon conversation is all about how popular they think they will be after the show, how people at home are taking care of things for them and what their plans are after the show.
While people are inside eating, Russell confronts Ronnie outside. Russell says he heard that Ronnie told people he could control him. Ronnie swears on the Bible that he never said that. Russell warns him about swearing like that because he is Catholic. Russell said he thinks Ronnie is turning on them and that would be dumb because Jessie saved him. Ronnie swears to God that his loyalties are the same. Russell starts questioning him as to why he is talking to Lydia and Kevin. Ronnie explains it is because Lydia and Kevin talk about life and not the game. This is odd because all Ronnie knows how to do is talk game.
Ronnie runs inside to tattle on Russell to Jessie and Chima. Jessie is annoyed with Russell and Chima apologizes to Ronnie. Ronnie then leaves, saying he is mad at Michele and wants to talk to her.
Russell goes in for some damage control, takes Natalie with him and tells her and Jessie how he questioned Ronnie about his conversation with Lydia and Kevin last night and how Ronnie swore on the Bible. Jessie wishes people would not swear on the Bible. Jessie said he just hopes Russell or Natalie wins HOH. They trash talk Lydia and Kevin, but Jessie says Kevin is a bigger threat than Lydia and he should go first. Russell says if he wins HOH, he will put Ronnie and Lydia up, knowing Ronnie will go home.
When Russell leaves, Jessie tells Natalie that whoever goes up next to Ronnie needs to go home. They call Michele into the room to tell her that Kevin was saying things about her last night, but they do not believe him and just wanted to keep her in the loop of information.
At 4:55 p.m., everyone is called inside for a lockdown. Russell must have had this arranged earlier when he asked to go into the Diary Room this morning, because right after everyone is called inside, Russell gets called to the Diary Room and comes out wearing a banana suit. He only gets to wear it for a few minutes, then gets called back in to take it off.
While they are all stuck in the house, they start talking about airport and flight experiences. Jordan tells a story about how she met an eighty-year-old man on a flight and he told her about being at Pearl Harbor and his travels and she really enjoyed the conversation. Jordan keeps telling stories about her experiences and gets interrupted by the others. When she was trying to talk about how she was bumped into at an airport, Jessie said he hates it when two women are walking towards him and he is expected to move out of the way because he is a man. When Jordan is explaining how she tried to ask for help and said “Mame,” Kevin interrupted her and said it is rude to use that term, you should always say “Miss,” otherwise you are saying the person is old. Jordan was talking about an airport in Atlanta and in the south, “Mame” is the acceptable term.
The conversation covers varied topics, such as: parenting, spanking and sexuality. Chima is in another room dropping names because she worked at the Sky Bar and now works at the Beverly Willshire Hotel. Then almost everyone is together and the topics include: drugs they have tried, bald heads, craigslist, how they paid for college, spell check, computers and cassette tapes.
Chima complains that the people in the house talk about sex too much and that gets Michele telling everyone how she pleasures herself daily and is not allowed to use her parent’s computer because she used to look at porn.
Lydia tries to cook, but asks Jeff for help, which brings several people out into the kitchen area. At around 9:20 p.m., the camera zooms in to the memory wall and there is a key hole in the middle of the BB11 Logo.
Ronnie and Kevin are in the HOH talking about what the HOH Competition might be. Everyone thinks it will be an endurance challenge of some sort, but they think there may be questions. Ronnie thinks America likes the cliques twist. Kevin mentions that he made it to the final for Survivor, but ended up getting on this show.
Casey was called to the Diary Room where they told him he has to wear the banana suit while he is talking in bed. When he is in bed sleeping, he can take it off.
Russell and Chima go to the HOH room after Ronnie and Kevin leave. Russell tells Chima that Lydia wants her out. He told Chima that he went off on Jeff during the first week just to see where everyone in the house stood.
Casey has been looking for his red suitcase for over an hour. Producers told him they put it in the Storage Room, but it is not in there, and now nobody can find it.
Funny note: After midnight, Jeff said “Who’s on first?” Casey said “What’s on second?” Jordan said “I don’t get it.” She thinks it is about sex.
At one in the morning, Jessie and Natalie are having their usual pillow fight and Jessie hits her leg with his hand hard enough to make her cry. He runs to get her an ice pack. Then Jessie and Lydia talk and he is upset with Natalie for making such a big deal about the slap he gave her.
Producers tell everyone they have to go to bed just before 2:00 a.m. Jessie, Lydia and Natalie are all in the HOH bed together and Lydia is throwing Kevin under the bus. She tells them he wants to align with Jeff, Jordan and Michele to get the Athletes out. Natalie said she thought Lydia was part of the plan, but Lydia insists it was all Kevin. Everyone else is in bed asleep, but these three keep talking. Jessie gets out of the bed and lets the girls talk themselves to sleep. He climbs back in bed at 5:00 a.m. and the girls are finally asleep, so he is very careful not to wake them up.
