"BIG BROTHER 8" HOUSEGUESTS BOOT MANIPULATIVE JOE
Joe Barber II Is the Second Houseguest to Officially Be Evicted from the BIG BROTHER 8 House
After being nominated for eviction by Head of Household Jen Johnson, Joe Barber II was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER 8 house by a vote of 9-1 by his fellow Houseguests, with everyone except Kail voting for Joe to go home (the Head of Household and the two nominees do not vote). On Tuesday, Daniele won the Power of Veto for the second week in a row and took herself off of the chopping block. Dick was left up for eviction and Jen nominated Joe to replace Daniele.
During last night's live broadcast, 23-year-old Joe Barber II from Chicago, learned his fate and left the house. After leaving BIG BROTHER 8, Joe was interviewed by Julie Chen about his experience.
Joe was part of the BIG BROTHER 8 enemy twist that will play out throughout the summer and with his eviction, he and his ex-lover, Dustin Erikstrup, were split up.
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. In 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 "Getting Schooled" to see who would become the next Head of Household. Dick, the 44-year-old Bar Manager from Los Angeles, won the coveted position in a tiebreaker.
