Big Brother 11: A Closer Look at Natalie and Michele

BULLETIN: According to various sources, the HG entered the house last night and had their first HOH comp. The mystery hamster is supposed to be a male from Season 10 who will create drama in the house. Most of the guesses are Brian. I personally (with no insider information) fear it might be Jesse. He was the drama that season!

Continuing on with my slightly more in-depth looks at the new hamsters --

She's tiny; she's feisty. Not only is she a martial arts champion, according to her CBS bio, she's a poker player. Let's see ... tough, strategic game ... she better not be a Wahmber!

Diane Henry (season um ... five? - Drew's buddy) now covers reality television for the CBS affiliate in Los Angeles and interviewed Natalie. It's not embeddable or you know I'd embed it. I'm an embedder. It's better than being an enabler, right?

Poking about the web, we have a similar case to Jeff Schroeder Hamster isn't Jeff Schroeder Smashing Pumpkin. Natalie is NOT the actress who comes up immediately upon Googling her name.

Onto Michele! I know I have someone else in the blog pool, but I'm going to be cheering the local gal on. No, I don't live in CA and haven't since I was six years old. She's born and raised in Iselin (NJ), about a town and a half away from me. Okay, maybe six miles. And she's a neuroscientist. I so want her to do well.

According to her CBS bio, she's one of the three married hamsters. Casey and Ronnie are the other two. Her strategy is to be a bit under the radar, but consistent with winning comps without dominating them. Her interview with Diane Henry is interesting -- she answered a Craiglist ad looking for people with interesting jobs to audition for a reality show. She's a fan of the show. Alas, she thinks she's like a female Eric (BB9) and says she's doofy like him.

Don't anybody tell Joan Rivers that Natalie is a poker player.

Delee said...

Joy n that is a hoot, I would never had thought of that!!!

Laurie said...

Oh please, not Jesse. No, no, no.
We already have a body with no brain, with Russell the Muscle!

PlaidChick said...

NO, NO and NO to BOTH of them... what is AG thinking?

this part of recycling sucks...

Jennasmom said...

I'm with you, PlaidChick! PLEASE don't recycle those old players! Now, Dr. Will might be fun to recycle!

joy n said...

If it is Jesse, hopefully he will be gone quickly. I agree with Laurie, two muscleheads in the house is just too much. They may think he's already had his shot and has to go.

My wv is inglut. How fitting for this post.

Caroline said...

Sadly, I can't imagine it would be Dan coming back since he won. But that would totally make my summer to watch him all over again!

I'm happy about having Natalie in the pool. I'd like to think if she's a poker player she can't be a complete dummy. And I hope that the martial arts part will mean she's not a wiggly, giggly, whiny type of girl.

And I'm excited about Melissa as well. As someone said earlier, maybe she'll be the next Nikomas and come up with some evil mastermind that changes the game.

You're very good at guessing, Jackie. I think a lot of people will be upset by the first HOH.

Wow, I cannot believe that my crazy computer is letting me load your site right now, Jackie! Hope you are well...

I think that when the BB11 season starts and your entries get more content in them, my dial-up connection might freeze me out of here. Anyway, Hi for now, all y'all, and I am still a raving RE:Ality TV addict...

hugs, Grove/Alb.
