Chima’s “behavior that led up to the expulsion” will be on Big Brother tonight

Previewing tonight’s episode of Big Brother 11 on The Early Show Monday morning, Julie Chen said that we’ll see why she was expelled, although Chima insists she quit.

“You will see why, basically, our back was up against the wall and we had to expel her from the game. You will see her behavior that led up to the expulsion; then, you can decide,” Julie said.

That explains why I’m completely a fan of the other alliance. I just wish the producers would bring April back into the house so she could calls us “pieces of shit” again.
