IT'S PAYBACK TIME IN THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE!

Big Brother House Guests Boot Out Jennifer Vasquez As Payback For Evicting Americas' Choice Winner Kaysar Ridha!

LOS ANGELES -- It was payback time on Saturday night in the Big Brother 6 house as Jennifer Vasquez, the 27-year-old arena football league dancer from Plano, Texas, was sent packing only two days after she led the charge to evict America's Choice winner Kaysar Ridha last Thursday. By a vote of 5 to 1, with only her partner, April Lewis, voting to keep her in the house, Jennifer was the sixth person evicted from the house. She is the first member of the Big Brother 6 jury.

After her eviction, Jennifer was interviewed by host Julie Chen and explained that as Head of Household she was a martyr who sacrificed herself for her team: "Being HOH you have a huge target on your back the next week. Even if you do end up evicting the person that you wanted gone, their group is going to go after you."

As the house war continues between the "Friendship" (Maggie, Ivette, Beau and April) and the "Sovereign Three" (Howie, Rachel and Janelle) alliances, Janelle admitted that her move to evict Jennifer was purely personal for evicting Kaysar.

Although she was HOH for only two days, Janelle was able to take full control of the house by also winning the power of veto competition. In a shocking move, Janelle removed Maggie from the chopping block and replaced her with Ivette, knowing that Beau (Ivette's partner) and James would not vote against Ivette, therefore ensuring Jennifer's departure out of the house.

Following Jennifer's eviction, houseguests participated in the Head of Household competition, which Beau won, shifting the power once again in the house. Beau will nominate two people for eviction on Tuesday's broadcast.

As part of the twist that is playing throughout the summer broadcasts, each of the 14 houseguests who originally entered the house believed they were the only one playing the game with a secret partner (friends, co-workers and significant others). As of today, the only remaining pairs in the house are Beau and Ivette and Howie and Rachel. In order to win the biggest cash prize in Big Brother history, it is up to the partners to keep their pairing intact and end up the last two people in the house, as the winner will collect $1,000,000 with the second place finisher winning $250,000. If a twosome does not make it to the final two, the winner will win $500,000.

BIG BROTHER 6 is broadcast each week on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) and Saturdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). The Thursday broadcast, hosted by Julie Chen, features the live eviction of one of the houseguests.
