Big Brother 8 Houseguests Give Mike His Walking Papers While Kail, His Former Alliance Partner, Escapes Eviction
CBS details the latest "Big Brother" elimination.

[via press release from CBS]

"BIG BROTHER 8" HOUSEGUESTS GIVE MIKE HIS WALKING PAPERS WHILE KAIL, HIS FORMER ALLIANCE PARTNER, ESCAPES EVICTION

Mike Dutz Is The Third Houseguest To Officially Be Evicted From The BIG BROTHER 8 House

Dustin Erikstrup Becomes the New Head of Household

Mike Dutz was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER 8 House by a vote of 7-2 (Head-of-Household and the two eviction nominees do not vote).

This past Tuesday, Jen won the Power of Veto and took herself off of the chopping block. Kail was left up for eviction and Head of Household Dick Donato then chose Mike Dutz to join her.

During last night's LIVE broadcast, the 26-year-old painting contractor from Three Lakes, Wis., learned his fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER 8, Mike was interviewed by Julie Chen about his experience.

Each Thursday, immediately following the eviction ceremony, the remaining 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 the activities of the other Houseguests. 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 Houseguests has the opportunity to win the Power of Veto which rewards them immunity from eviction if they are currently nominated. If the winner is not up for eviction, they can choose to remove one of the Houseguests who is nominated which then forces the current Head-of-Household to immediately nominate another Houseguest for eviction.

After last night's eviction, the Houseguests competed in a competition called "The Eliminator" to see who would become the next Head of Household. Dustin Erikstrup, won the coveted position.
