CBS 'Big Brother' double eviction best in 18-49


CBS Wins Thursday. CHEAT TWEET: Daniele & Jeff sent packing during whirlwind double eviction on Big Brother. 6 players remain!

During last night’s first LIVE eviction on BIG BROTHER, the Houseguests voted to evict Daniele Donato, the 25-year-old college student from Huntington Beach, Calif., by a vote of 3-2. Daniele will join Brendon in the Jury House.

Following the eviction ceremony, the Houseguests competed in a LIVE “Before or After” Head of Household competition where they had to answer questions regarding the chronology of events in the BIG BROTHER house. Kalia won the HOH contest and immediately nominated Rachel and Jeff for eviction.

The Houseguests then competed in a LIVE “Clowning Around” Power of Veto competition where they had to compete to find clown shoes in a bin filled with colored balls. Porsche located both shoes first, winning the POV, and chose to keep the nominations the same.
During the second LIVE eviction on BIG BROTHER, Kalia broke the tie vote to evict Jeff Schroeder, the 33-year-old advertising salesman from Norridge, Ill., by a final vote of 3 – 2. Jeff will also move into the Jury House. The next HOH competition and winner will be revealed during BIG BROTHER on Sunday, August 28 at 8:00 PM ET/PT.
