LYDIA IS THE SEVENTH HOUSEGUEST TO BE EVICTED FROM THE "BIG BROTHER" HOUSE
On Tuesday, Jordan nominated Natalie and Lydia for eviction. In last night's LIVE Power-of-Veto competition "Before or After," the Houseguests were asked a series of questions based on events in the House that could be answered by choosing either "Before" or "After." Jordan won and chose not to use it leaving both Natalie and Lydia on the chopping block.
During last night's live broadcast, by a vote of three to one, Lydia, the 24-year-old special effects make-up artist from Torrance, Calif., learned her fate and left the BIG BROTHER House. She will be the second Houseguest to be sequestered in the jury house. After her eviction, she was interviewed by Julie Chen about her experience.
After last night's BIG BROTHER eviction, the Houseguests competed in a joint "Have/Have-Not" and Head-of-Household competition called "Can Do" Houseguests grabbed cans and then dropped them into their individual recycling tubes. On this Sunday's show, the houseguest who either collected twenty-four cans the fastest or had the most cans in their tubes after an hour will be revealed and they will be this week's HOH.
