DESPITE HIS TIRELESS CAMPAIGNING EFFORTS TO REMAIN IN THE HOUSE, BIG BROTHER HOUSEGUESTS VOTE TO EVICT MATT
Head of Household James Casts the Deciding Vote To Break a 3-3 Tie
Matt Becomes the First Juror to Be Sequestered
After being nominated for eviction by Head of Household James Zinkand and following a week of hard campaigning, Matt McDonald was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER House. Matt was ousted by a vote of 4-3, with Head of Household James' deciding vote breaking the 3-3 tie.
On Tuesday, James won the Power of Veto, and chose to remove Sheila, one of his original nominations, and replace her with Matt. Matt then joined Ryan on the chopping block.
During last night's live broadcast, Matt McDonald, the 23-year-old roofing foreman from Charlestown, Mass. learned his fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER, Matt was interviewed by Julie Chen about his experience. He becomes the first jury member.
After last night's eviction, the Houseguests competed in a game called "On Guard," in which Houseguests squared off in head-to-head "duels" where they were asked questions based on quotes that evicted Houseguests made in the diary room. Houseguests had to answer the question correctly to avoid elimination. Whomever answered the question correctly, selected the next two Houseguests to "duel." The last Houseguest remaining became the new Head of Household. Adam Jasinski, the 29-year-old public relations manager from Delray Beach, Fla. via Cherry Hill, N.J., won the coveted position.
