[via press release from CBS]

AFTER BEING BLINDSIDED BY JEFF WHO CHOSE TO USE THE COUP D'ETAT POWER, JESSIE WAS PUT ON THE BLOCK AGAINST ONE OF HIS BIGGEST ALLIES, AND IS THE FIFTH HOUSEGUEST TO BE EVICTED FROM THE "BIG BROTHER" HOUSE

Jessie Was Evicted Last Night from the BIG BROTHER House by a Vote of 3 to 2

On Sunday, Chima nominated Russell and Lydia for eviction. On Tuesday, Kevin won the Power-of-Veto and chose not to use it leaving both Russell and Lydia on the chopping block.

Jeff held the Coup d'Etat power and decided to use it during last night's eviction ceremony. He chose to remove both Lydia and Russell from the block and replace them with Jessie and Natalie.

During last night's live broadcast, Jessie, the 23-year-old professional bodybuilder from Tampa, Fla., learned his fate and left the BIG BROTHER House. He will be the first Houseguest to be sequestered in the jury house. After his eviction, he was interviewed by Julie Chen about his experience.

After last night's BIG BROTHER eviction, the Houseguests competed for Head-of-Household in a competition called "Hit the Road." The backyard was dressed to look like a highway with street lights. The first two players were selected by random draw, they stood at a podium, each outfitted with three buttons - HOH, HHN and VETO. Every question posed could be answered by using one of these buttons. When a player answered incorrectly, they were eliminated from the game and the next player stepped up to the podium. Michele answered the most questions correctly and became the new Head-of-Household.

The Houseguests:

Braden Bacha, Santa Monica, Calif. - Evicted on Thursday, July 16

Casey Turner, St. Petersburg, Fla. - Evicted on Thursday, July 30

Chima Simone, West Hollywood, Calif.

Jeff Schroeder, Norridge, Ill.

Jessie Godderz, Tampa, Fla. - Evicted on Thursday, Aug. 13

Jordan Lloyd, Matthews, N.C.

Laura Crosby, Atlanta, Ga. - Evicted on Thursday, July 23

Lydia Tavera, Torrance, Calif.

Michele Noonan, Pasadena, Calif. via Iselin, N.J.

Natalie Martinez, Gilbert, Ariz. via Chino, Calif.

Ronnie Talbott, Belpre, Ohio via Vienna, W.Va. - Evicted on Thursday, Aug. 6

Russell Kairouz, Walnut Creek, Calif.

The 11th season of BIG BROTHER is broadcast three nights weekly, 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, Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT).

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguests will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan and Scott Einziger, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
