August 31, 2009

For those of you that read my posts on Big Brother, you will obviously have noticed my about-face with regards to Natalie. Based only on the first episode, I chose her as my pick to win the game, but it quickly became apparent that she was a follower, and didn’t really have much game play in her. Yes, she’s somewhat athletic, but it has become painfully obvious that being a trophy-winning tae kwon do fighter does not mean you can hang from a toilet seat, run on a greasy walkway with a leaky cup of hot chocolate, or swing around on a giant carousel…longer or faster than your opponents.

As I mentioned recently, Natalie has become one of those reprehensible Reality TV stars that every show needs. I mean, let’s be honest…how boring would Survivor Tocantins have been without Coach Wade? Jessie, Lydia, Chima, and Natalie have been the classless class of Summer 2009 for Big Brother 11. The astounding thing about these types of reality stars is their utter delusions about themselves. Natalie has spent two months in the Big Brother house, and made it to the final 5…without winning anything! But in last week’s marathon hot chocolate globe-filling race, when she gave up, and put it all on Kevin’s shoulder’s, she used her token line in the diary room, “I’m not going to show the rest of the house how strong of a competitor I am.”
There are only five of them left! If her ‘master plan’ is to hide this strength she claims to have in all of these challenges…well then, well done Natalie! Because that is the best job of concealing strength that I’ve ever seen…an untrained eye would just think that you sucked at everything. I can just imagine when she gets voted out, she’s going to turn to them as she’s leaving and say, “Ha! I fooled you all!” And run out and tell Julie how she was clearly the strongest player in the house, but chose to never win a challenge.
