Big Brother 8 Houseguests Send Carol Packing
CBS details the latest "Big Brother" elimination.

[via press release from CBS]

"BIG BROTHER 8" HOUSEGUESTS SEND CAROL PACKING

Carol Journey Is the First Houseguest to Officially Be Evicted from the BIG BROTHER 8 House

After being nominated for eviction by Kail Harbick, Carol Journey was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER 8 House by a vote of 10-1 by her fellow Houseguests, with everyone voting out Carol except Jen (Head of Household and the two eviction nominees do not vote). On Tuesday, Daniele won the Power of Veto, but chose to leave the nominations as they stood, leaving Carol Journey and Amber Siyavus on the chopping block.

During last night's live broadcast, the 21-year-old student from Lawrence, Kan., learned her fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER 8, Carol was interviewed by Julie Chen about her experience.

Carol was part of the BIG BROTHER 8 enemy twist that will play out throughout the summer and with her eviction, she and her former best friend become the first pair of rivals to be split up this season. Her former best friend, Jessica Hughbanks, remains in the house.

"America's Player," Eric Stein, voted Carol out of the house because viewers voted for him to do so. Each week, the prevailing viewers' vote must be carried out by Stein in order for him to be financially rewarded. Viewers can vote on "America's Player's" next move on CBS.com or via text messaging on a mobile phone.

Each Thursday, the Houseguests compete to become Head of Household. The perks of the position include a luxurious private bedroom and bathroom, along with a plasma screen spy cam to monitor other Houseguests' activities. However, it also includes the responsibility of having to nominate two fellow Houseguests for eviction. On the weeks when there are veto challenges, one of the nominees can be saved from the chopping block if they, or another Houseguest, wins the Power of Veto competition and chooses to save one of the nominees, while giving themselves immunity from nomination. If they choose to use the veto power, the Head of Household must immediately choose another nominee.

After last night's eviction, the houseguests competed in a competition called "Majority Rules" to see who would become the next Head of Household. Jen Johnson, the 23-year-old nanny from Beverly Hills, Calif., won the coveted position.

BIG BROTHER 8 is broadcast each week on Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and the live eviction show, hosted by Julie Chen, on Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM live ET/delayed PT).
