is finished. Results after the jump.

As expected, Russell used the Power of Veto on Lydia and Jesse nominated Braden in her place. I've never quite understood why the POV ceremony takes place so far in advance of eviction night, but there you go.

It's hard to get a handle on which way the votes will go. The Jocks seem to think Chima is safe and Braden is on his way out. Ronnie, for a brain and self-proclaimed huge "Big Brother" fan, is playing quite possibly the stupidest game (save for maybe Brian from last season). Ronnie is flittering around like a gnat, going from group to group and talking out of both sides of his mouth. And that's a fine strategy, but he sucks at it. He's not a good liar, he gets all nervous and fidgety and I think it's only a matter of time before everyone sees what's really going on.

Natalie and Jesse are quickly alientating themselves from everyone else in the house. Natalie is acting a little too big for her britches and Jesse is just annoying all around. I think if another Jock doesn't win HOH this week, one of them is surely on their way out next week.
