Jeff Schroeder’s fake Facebook wall summarizes Big Brother 11 flawlessly

This season of Big Brother may not be the best ever, but it has generated some fantastic satire. First there was cartoon Julie Chen’s interview with producer Allison Grodner, and now a satirical mock-up of Jeff Schroeder’s Facebook wall posted on Survivor Sucks.

It’s rich with material, from the friending/unfriending of Jeff and other houseguests to the ads (“World renowned sports entertainer Jessie Godderz will obsolete your current workout plan!”) Executive producer Allison Grodner also makes appearances, with her fake status indicating she’s booted Chima, which results in a hysterical exchange. Even his relationship status is funny. The whole thing is fantastic, so bravo to its creator.
