Jessie is the "Big Brother" HOH

Jessie is the "Big Brother" HOH

Can it be? Can I possibly be liking Head of Household Jessie on “Big Brother 11?”Am I actually rooting for him?

Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes! The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

Last year on “Big Brother,” my main reaction to Jessie was that I wanted to punch him in the mouth a lot. He was arrogant and thought he was a lot smarter than he actually was and mostly just annoyed the ever-living crap out of me.


This year? He is cracking me. His love triangle with Natalie and Lydia is hysterical. He is playing an incredibly smart game; he’s not alientating anyone, he’s taking lots of opinions into account and he seems to have a pretty good bead on all the houseguests. His arrogance this year is much more tongue-in-cheek. I really don’t know what is happening, but I find myself rooting for him.

Last year, I was embarrassed that he is from my home state. This year I’m all, “Iowa, represent!”
