Being “popular” in the Big Brother household is not such a good thing.
Atlanta bikini model Laura Crosby, part of the “popular” clique, was ousted Thursday night from “Big Brother 11.” She’s the second person out after Braden, another “popular” person.
Laura only received one vote from Natalie, the tae kwon do champ.
The other eight contestants took her out over Jordan, the less intelligent blonde gal. The Head of Household Ronnie deemed Laura a bigger threat given that Laura is a student of the game.
Laura figured out all the manipulations Ronnie was making and told her fellow popular clique mate Jordan. “She may have said stuff to” Ronnie, she told Julie Chen after she was axed. “Ronnie’s a rat. She knew I was on to him.”
When she realized she was going to be voted out earlier in the week, she decided to out Ronnie as the man manipulating everybody. Chagrined, Ronnie sequestered himself in the Head of Household room, pitying himself but also trying to engender sympathy as Russell mocked him for days.
“I’m so glad he took me down and I’m taking him down with me,” Laura told Julie.
Laura before the game said women don’t tend to like her, though ironically the sympathy vote she got came from a woman.
Russell, in a tape in case she got canned, told her that he enjoyed watching her sun herself but she was a goner because “You are a bright intelligent girl so I don’t want you in the game.”
UPDATED: People interviewed her. She said she had Ronnie’s number from the start (not that it mattered.). She thinks Natalie is the sleeper, likes Michele. The general reaction is Laura pretty split down the middle, eh? Some folks said they came in expecting her to be a dope but she came as reasonably smart and very self aware.
