Big Brother (US): THE EVICTION
Julie announces to the gathered HouseGuests that for the first time in BIG BROTHER 3, there is a tie in the eviction voting. As HoH, the tiebreaker vote falls to Gerry. Gerry reiterates his strategy of looking at the nomination/eviction like a chess move, and states that he loves both Eric and Lisa. That said, Gerry votes to evict Eric. The rest of the group reacts with silence as Eric hugs Lisa and moves to the door. Everyone follows, and Eric leaves after exchanging quiet goodbyes with the other HouseGuests.
As he makes his way to the studio for a chat with Julie Chen, the inside of the House is completely quiet. Eric settles in and tells Julie that he's "not happy" about the outcome. Of the other HouseGuests, Eric says he's only disappointed in Gerry, not just for voting him out, but for trying to be all things to all people. He says he doesn't regret anything in the House, including his romance with Lisa, even though it "didn't help me as much as it should have."
HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD
To crown a new House power, the HouseGuests compete in a game called "Gutterball," a type of bowling. The HouseGuest who rolls their ball down a lane and comes closest to the edge without going into the gutter is the new HoH. To complicate matters, bumpers lie along the lane to deflect their balls. Roddy rolls first, but his ball goes too long, eliminating him. Jason goes next, and his ball hits a bumper and stops about a third of the way down the lane, putting him in the early lead. Marcellas is next, but like Roddy, rolls his ball too long. Josh strategically soft-tosses his ball, bringing it to a stop halfway down the lane, eliminating Jason and putting Josh in control. Chiara rolls next, and her ball stops inches from the end, a roll that will be tough to beat. With Chiara in the lead, Danielle and Lisa both roll their balls too long, giving Chiara the HoH title.
THE BIG TWIST
Just as a new power structure is introduced to the House, a new development is on the horizon. One of the four evicted HouseGuests, Lori, Tonya, Amy or Eric, will be reentering the BIG BROTHER House. The first three evictees have been whisked away to secluded locations and have no idea what has happened in the House since their eviction. Lori has been in Cancun, Mexico since her eviction, checking out the ruins and waiting for her chance to return, which she says she will do with "pride and dignity." Tonya has gone to the Caribbean, working on her tan and planning to make a "sexy" return to the House. Amy is in Ixtapa, Mexico, which she calls Margaritaville, and thinks about Marcellas's reaction if he saw her come back in through the door. Eric too, will be secluded and deprived of information regarding events in the House.
