Big Brother announces “huge announcement” Thursday, hopefully to save the game

There was only one thing of real interest on Tuesday night’s episode of Big Brother 11, and it’s not that Michele used the POV to save herself and allow Jessie to backdoor Casey. Instead, it’s something that came during the episode’s final seconds, when the announcer teased Thursday’s episode by promising “a huge announcement will turn the game upside down.”

With only Jordan left representing the popular clique, and with the four-way forced-identification split being a pretty bad idea in the first place, let’s hope that Julie Chen will announce that the cliques are being dissolved, and not announce something ridiculous like an America’s Choice vote to make the houseguests eat pineapple upside down cake all week.
