I am happy to be joining the Big Brother Network’s Diary Room blog! I am grateful for the opportunity.

In my first posting, I’m going to go over a couple of different things that are going on at the Big Brother house, and some of the interesting dynamics that have been seen lately.

Jeff and the Coup D’Etat

In the Big Brother Network Chat, and on other forums and discussion boards, there has been a lot of talk about whether or not Jeff will actually use his Coup D’Etat power, which allows him to essentially switch the nominees at the last minute. If you watched Big Brother on Sunday, August 9th, you already know that Jeff has confirmed he will use it. As we all know, things change rapidly in the house, so I suppose there’s always the outside chance that he will not use it after all.

Logically and strategically, Jeff should use the Coup D’Etat to put up Jessie and Natalie. Again, I am aware that a lot of people are saying that it would not be wise for Jeff to use the power because of the backlash that will occur. I’ll touch on that a little more later. So why is it his best move to put up Jessie and Natalie? This is the best course of action because, for starters, this ensures that one of them goes home. Also, Chima has even said it in the past: If either Jessie or Natalie goes home, in effect, their alliance will be over. And most importantly, by doing this, he is taking Russell off the block. This means that with the Russell and Chima feud, it’s likely that Jeff will not be the target after all. The target will still be Russell or Chima, depending who wins HOH. I think the focus will not be on Jeff for using the power at any point, because you know that by the time Russell or Chima get voted out, there’s going to be another feud. Jeff and Jordan are staying out of that. It’s to their advantage that everyone else in the house is playing emotionally.

Chima’s Behavior

Chima has already said that she is going to blow a gasket if someone takes her power away (uses the Coup D’Etat). She has been talking about using some less-than-desirable tactics to get Russell out of the house if her nominations are overthrown. Just the other day, she said that she was going to spit in Russell’s face in hopes that he hits her so he gets tossed out. She went even further by saying that if he hits her and gets evicted, she is going to press charges against him once she gets out of the house.

In the past, Chima criticized Braden for being racist. On Sunday, August 9th, she and Russell had another huge blowout, where she continuously yelled “terrorist” at Russell (this stems from Russell’s Lebanese heritage). She later joked about this with Jessie and Natalie. Jessie even chimed in and called Russell “Osama.”

For as much as Chima claims to have class and be an intellectual, she is certainly not playing the part. Name-calling in racist fashion is completely classless and is definitely not, in any way, intelligent.

Chima has been spending all of her time in her HOH room, requesting that others come to her. I hope Princess Chima enjoys her HOH room for the week, because that’s all she’s getting out of the deal. I don’t think she’ll be around too much longer, either.

Until next time…
