Big Brother 11 cast yells at each other to “shut the fuck up”

Monday’s trio of verbal and even physical confrontations in the Big Brother 11 house have been condensed into a nearly four-minute video that highlights the way the houseguests are extremely fond of repeating the exact same phrases over and over again. That, or they’re too stupid to say something different.

A lot of it is courtesy of Chima and Russell, who staged and planned their altercation; they say the same things over and over again. Phrases repeat during fights and even in between; as a bonus, there’s footage of Ronnie crying and using the f-word, which would earn sympathy from me if he wasn’t so excruciatingly annoying.

More than any other, the houseguests are fond of a phrase that ironically often describes what we wish they’d do: “Shut the fuck up.” Watch below, and don’t listen to this with the volume up in public unless you’re in a forgiving location. Duh.
