LOS ANGELES (AP) — Natalie Martinez may have told her last lie in the "Big Brother" house.
The only way the scheming 24-year-old from Gilbert, Ariz., will have a shot at the CBS reality show's $500,000 grand prize is if one of the remaining competitors chooses her to battle against for winning bids from the "Big Brother 11" jury, which will include viewer votes as a possible tiebreaker.
After besting Martinez in qualifying bouts last week, Jordan Lloyd, 22, from Matthews, N.C., and Kevin Campbell, 29, from Chula Vista, Calif., will tussle during Tuesday's finale in the last Head of Household competition. The winner will choose his or her opponent.
Martinez has primarily spent the season deceiving her opponents. Her biggest fib was fooling most of the contestants — or houseguests, as they're called on the show — into believing she was an 18-year-old recent high school graduate. But she fumbled last week in a poorly constructed lie about being awarded a visit from her boyfriend inside the house.
The two-hour finale will also feature the jury's interrogation of the final two and a reunion of the 13-member cast — except for Chima Simone, the 33-year-old freelance journalist who was expelled after tossing a microphone into a whirlpool spa. Because Simone won't be part of the jury, viewers have been asked to cast the possibly tie-breaking seventh jury vote.
