Turns out Chima Simone didn't pull a knife on anyone, nor did she throw furniture. Heck, she didn't even threaten her housemates with anything worse than the promise of more swearing!
But her sheer insolence was enough to invoke the wrath of Big Brother executive producer Allison Grodner, who on Tuesday's episode was heard requesting Chima's presence in the Diary Room after the incessantly profane 33-year-old chucked her microphone into the backyard Jacuzzi.
Which, as any reality show veteran can tell you, is not for stashing equipment.
"I don't give a s--t! Eat it!" Chima exclaimed when she walked into the yard without the device and was promptly reminded by her pal Natalie Martinez to go get it.
"It was very clear Chima did not want to follow the rules of the game," Grodner's disembodied voice informed the remaining houseguests after she had shown the rowdy contestant who was boss.
"Tonight she made the decision to willfully destroy her microphone—a piece of production equipment. That, you all are aware, is a big violation. For this reason, and because of multiple violations, she needed to be expelled."
So that's why Chima was booted from the barely compelling CBS show, becoming only the third houseguest to be prematurely evicted by producers in 11 seasons. She doesn't get to be a member of the seven-person jury who will choose the eventual winner, either.
We're no experts, but it sure seems as if Chima checked out of the game the second she was nominated for eviction. Of course, she made her ouster all the more welcome by calling housemate Russell Kairouz, who's Lebanese-American, a terrorist last week.
Do you think she staged the whole thing in hopes of being the queen brat from Big Brother 11, or did she just innocently run her mouth off one too many times?
How does the Big Brother 11 cast stack up against the rest of 2009's Summer Reality TV Stars?
