Big Brother 11's Chima Kicked Out of the House
Volatile Big Brother 11 houseguest Chima was kicked off the show Saturday morning.
"Chima has been evicted by the producers from the Big Brother house for violating the rules," read a statement released by CBS. "She will not be part of the show's jury. Her eviction will be addressed on an upcoming broadcast of the show."
Chima became upset Thursday when, after fellow houseguest Jeff used his mystery power of coup d'etat, her nominations for eviction were overruled. CBS even pre-taped Thursday's usually live eviction ceremony after Chima made threats to be unruly if her head-of-household powers were usurped.
Early Saturday, Chima refused to wear her microphone and even threw it into the Jacuzzi, according to a Big Brother fansite that monitors CBS' 24/7 live feed of the house. When told that she would have to pay for the microphone, Chima cursed at the producers and stormed off, according to the site.
Next Thursday's episode was supposed to feature a surprise double eviction, but there is no word yet on how this development will affect this week's eviction cycle or how Chima's removal will impact the jury house, which usually has seven members.
TVGuide.com's calls to Allison Grodner Productions, who produces the show for CBS, were not immediately returned.
Chima has been a wild card all season. During the first live eviction, she made controversial comments about a fellow houseguest that had to be censored by the tape delay. She has also had multiple verbal altercations with Lebanese-American houseguest Russell, whom she repeatedly called a "terrorist."http://www.tvguide.com/News/Big-Brother-Chima-1009002.aspx
