RUSSELL BECOMES THE EIGHTH HOUSEGUEST TO BE EVICTED FROM THE "BIG BROTHER" HOUSE
Russell Was Evicted Last Night from the BIG BROTHER House by a Unanimous Vote
After being nominated for eviction by Head-of-Household Jeff, Russell was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER House by a 3-0 vote.
On Sunday, Jeff nominated Natalie and Kevin for eviction. On Tuesday, Jeff won the Power-of-Veto and chose to remove Kevin from the block. After vetoing one of his own nominations, Jeff was forced to select another Houseguest to put in his place and decided to backdoor Russell by putting him on the block.
During last night's live broadcast, Russell, the 24-year-old mixed martial arts fighter from Walnut Creek, Calif. learned his fate and left the BIG BROTHER House. He will be the third 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 in the latest Head-of-Household competition called "The S'More The Merrier." The Houseguests each stood in their own lanes, transferring cupfuls of hot chocolate from a reservoir to their individual tanks until the marshmallow inside the tank floated up high enough for them to grab. The first one to grab the marshmallow from their tank will be named this week's HOH, which will be revealed in Sunday's episode.
