Big Brother 11: Chima Lost Her Mind

Wow, y'all! This has been a crazy couple of day in the Big Brother 11 house. I think we all knew that something fierce would happen once Jeff used the Coup d'Etat, and it did. Chima, Natalie and Lydia reverted to childhood and caused havoc in the house. And as of right now Chima is no longer there.

Story Updated at end of article 1:30 BBT

Last night Team Chima were total brats. The were furious that all their campaigning to Michele about nominations were for naught. They tried everything they could to get Russell nominated. They constantly reminded Michele of her promise the week before of safety to Chima and Natalie. They kept repeating to her all of the things they said that Russell said and did to her. Natalie generously offered her allegiance to Michele ... wasn't that nice? When all was said and done, though, Michele nominated Chima and Natalie with her stated target being Chima.

Well, Ms. Chima lost her freaking mind. She was openly defiant to Big Brother. I heard a number of 'Chima, please put on your microphone' announcements and saw her flip them the bird. Kevin got her microphone for her and she tossed the whole thing into the hot tub. She refused to get a replacement one and her little dog Kevin went and fetched a new one for her. She made repeated remarks about production, which sent us feed watchers to fish over and over again. She repeated her threats to leave and her and her little groupies talked about having production over a barrel if they all left.

They dumped all of Jeff's clothes out a drawer, they took Russell's rosary that his grandmother sent him and they hid it. Oh, and get this, Ms. Chima commented that he's not even a catholic, he's a Muslim extremist. They threatened to put red m&m's into Michele's food (Michele is allergic to red dye 40), and also threatened to go into the HoH room to mess with her stuff. They had the rule book with them so they could make sure that the chaos they caused was not against the rules. All of the Michele stuff was, which is probably why they were only threats. I know the feeds cut to fish after the m&m remark.

After an extended period of fish, we came back to Kevin sitting outside on the couches with Michele telling her that he was fed up with his wimmin (yes, I know that's spelled incorrectly). He was complaining to her and then the feeds were cut once again. And they stayed off this time. Feedwatchers speculated on the cause of this feed blackout. Most of us agreed that it had something to do with the brats, and we'd thought that Allison Grodner must have been called in, but after that ...

When the feeds came back on an hour and a half plus later, Chima was gone. Her picture on the memory wall was still in color, but she was gone. Natalie said something about her not even packing, then fish. What the heck happened? Did she leave or was she asked to leave? Will we ever find out? What will the creative editors at CBS choose to show us on Sunday ...or Tuesday? Remember Sunday's show only goes up to the nomination ceremony, so they may not tell us anything then.

What will this do to the Big Brother 11 schedule? Power of Veto competition is supposed to be today, but there's only one nominee. There's supposed to be a Fast Forward double eviction this Thursday, is that still on? What about the jury? Will they be a person down, or will the viewers get one of their fondest wishes and get to be that seventh vote? What are your thoughts on any or all of this? Hold on to your seats and stay tuned, I'm sure that there will be more to come.

Update: CBS Statement Regarding Chima "Chima has been evicted by the producers from the Big Brother house for violating the rules. She will not be part of the show's jury. Her eviction will be addressed on an upcoming broadcast of the show."
