Untrustworthy James Back-Doored Out of the Big Brother House

[via press release from CBS]


James Rhine Is the 9th Person Evicted From the "Big Brother 6" House

LOS ANGELES -- It's been 60 days in the BIG BROTHER 6 house and the resident shape-shifter and "Veto King" has finally met his demise. James Rhine, the 29-year-old Loss Prevention Manager from Atlanta, Ga., was evicted last night from the Big Brother house and will join fellow evictees Jennifer and Rachel on the Big Brother jury. James was evicted from the house by a unanimous vote.

Immediately following his eviction, James was interviewed by host Julie Chen about his controversial experience in the house.

With the "Sovereign" alliance (Howie and Janelle) all but dismantled and cracks starting to widen within the "Friendship" alliance (Maggie, April, Ivette and Beau), the enemy within was starting to emerge and the houseguests began to strategize over what to do with James.

Following April's victory in the Head of Household competition last Thursday, she nominated Janelle and Howie for eviction and set the plan in motion to backdoor James. April then went on to win the Power of Veto. Although James made modest attempts to remain in the game, the houseguests started to see through his sneaky tactics, and after a week of anticipation, April made good on her promise by taking Janelle off the block and replacing her with James, ensuring the end of the road for James.

After the eviction, the houseguests competed in a competition called "Playing It Straight" to see who would become the next Head of Household. Howie, the 34-year-old meteorology student, originally from Chicago, Ill. and currently living in Boca Raton, Fla., won the coveted position.

Following the HOH competition, Julie announced that it is a double eviction week and Howie immediately nominated Ivette and Beau. The second eviction of the week will be broadcast on Saturday, September 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and that person will be become the fourth member of the BIG BROTHER 6 jury.

Only one pair remains in the house (Ivette and Beau). In order to win the biggest cash prize in Big Brother history, it is up to them to keep their pairing intact and end up the last two people in the house. The final winner will collect $1,000,000 and the second place finisher will win $250,000. If the twosome does not make it to the final two, the winner will receive $500,000.

For more information about the aftermath of James' eviction log on to www.cbs.com and watch him live on "Housecalls: The Big Brother Talk Show" with Marcellas and Gretchen on Friday (1:00 PM ET/10:00 AM PT).

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.
