"Big Brother 11" Spoilers: Michele Wins PoV, HoH Kevin Replaces Her With Jordan

Late last night the "Big Brother" houseguests competed in the annual Morph-O-Matic PoV competition. Each contestant had to identify two evicted houseguest's faces that were morphed together. Michele was able to complete the challenge the fastest and won PoV & a 55" LCD TV and Blu-Ray player. Unsurprisingly, she removed herself from the block and HoH Kevin replaced her with Jordan. Now Jeff & Jordan sit next to each other on the block, and one of them will be going home on Thursday. I'll report on the eviction and the new HoH right after the live show airs on the east coast!

Luke Eliminates Heather and Kristian on Tonight's "More to Love"

"More to Love" just ended and Luke said goodbye to Kristian and fan favorite Heather. The episode began with a two on one date where Luke took Kristian and Mandy salsa dancing. Mandy continued to have a hard time dealing with Luke dating multiple women. Later, Luke gave Malissa a one on one date which had the pair taking a helicopter ride to a vineyard. Luke and Malissa continued to form a connection, which unsurprisingly made the other girls jealous. The next day Luke took Tali, Heather and Anna to the beach where Tali & Anna's relationship with Luke grew, but Heather's waned. At the elimination Kristian told Luke she loved him and Tali expressed concern about her and Luke's connection. In the end, Luke decided to eliminate Kristian and Heather which probably shocked the fans as much as the women themselves.

Now only four girls remain. Has Luke kept the right four? Why do you think he got rid of Heather? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

Lauren & Mel B Eliminated on "More to Love"

On yesterday's "More to Love" Luke Conley picked his "sexy 6" and sent home Lauren and Mel B. The episode began with the remaining eight women judging each other on whether they would be a good wife or a bad wife. Heather got the most good votes, while Mel B got the most bad votes. Both women were then awarded one on one dates with Luke. First up was Mel's date, where Luke took her to a Moroccan restaurant. Then it was time for Heather's date, where they went to a medieval castle. There, Luke asked her about children and Heather didn't really have any answers. Finally, it was time for the group date. Luke took six women to a spa and got some private time with Malissa A, Tali, Mandy and Anna. Later that night, at the elimination ceremony Luke said goodbye to Lauren and Mel B.

Now only six women remain. Who do you think Luke should pick? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!

The "Big Brother" house is now a little quieter because late Friday night Chima Simone was expelled from the game.

Since one of Michele's nominees was gone, it was time for a new HoH! The competition was miniature golf and the houseguests could earn prizes too. Natalie got a phone call from home, Russell got a spa treatment, Jeff got a Hawaiian vacation, Kevin got $5,000, Lydia got the red unitard and Jordan got the best prize of all - HoH! Today was the nomination ceremony and unsurprisingly Jordan nominated Lydia and Natalie. The PoV and eviction will both be live on Thursday so anything can still happen!

Paula Abdul Leaves "American Idol"

"American Idol"s ninth season auditions have just started, but one judge will be noticeably absent from the show. Paula Abdul has decided to leave the show after months of salary disputes. Reportedly, Paula was asking for a raise from her $3.5 million a year to $10 million a year, the same as Ryan Seacrest's new salary. FOX only offered her $5 million a year "take it or leave it". With Kara signed on to stay, "Idol" will fill Paula's spot with rotating guest judges like Katy Perry, Mary J. Blige, Shania Twain and Victoria Beckham. A new permanent judge may be added after the audition rounds. One thing's for sure, although the show will go on "Idol" will not be the same without Paula.

"Big Brother 11" Spoilers: Ronnie Evicted, New HoH Chima Nominates Russell & Lydia

On Thursday's live "Big Brother" eviction show Ronnie became the fourth person voted out of the house. It was a 4-3 vote with Jeff, Jordan, Michele & Kevin voting out Ronnie and Jessie, Natalie & Chima voting out Lydia. After the eviction the houseguests competed in a True/False HoH competition which Chima won. The next day Chima nominated Russell and Lydia for eviction, hoping Russell would be the one to go. On Saturday Kevin won the egg themed PoV comp, but decided not to use the power, leaving Chima's nominees intact. However, Jeff still has the Coup d'Etat and he will most likely use it and take down Russell & Lydia. We'll find out very soon!

"Big Brother 11" Spoilers: Michele Wins Veto

On Saturday the "Big Brother" houseguests competed in the Veto competition and for the second week in a row Michele won. In the contestant selection Kevin, Jessie and Michele were picked to play with Russell, Ronnie and Lydia. In the competition it came down to Russell and Michele, with Michele taking the prize. Later in the day Michele approached Jeff about forming an alliance and Jeff seemed receptive. Today during the Veto meeting, Michele didn't use her power thus leaving Ronnie and Lydia on the block. Most likely Jeff, Jordan, Kevin and Michele will vote to evict Ronnie on Thursday, sending him home. But nothing's final until Julie makes it official on eviction night!
