The "Big Brother: All-Stars" Houseguests Give Nakomis the Boot

[via press release from CBS]



After being nominated for eviction by Head of Household Kaysar Ridha (BB6), Jennifer "Nakomis" Dedmon (BB5) was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS House by a vote of 8-2 by her fellow Houseguests (the two nominees do not vote and the Head of Household only votes in the event of a tie). On Tuesday, Erika won the Power of Veto, but chose to leave the nominations as they stood, leaving Nakomis and Diane Henry (BB5) on the chopping block.

During last night's live broadcast, the 23-year-old hostess from San Antonio, Tex., learned her fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS, Nakomis was interviewed by Julie Chen about her experience.

With Big Brother 6 players dominating the game thus far and retaining power this past week with another Head of Household victory, the anti-BB6 sentiment is growing stronger.

The Houseguests compete each Thursday to become Head of Household. The perks of the position include having a luxurious private bedroom and bathroom, as well as a plasma screen spy cam to monitor other Houseguests' activities. However, it also includes the responsibility of having to nominate two fellow Housemates for eviction. On the weeks when there are veto challenges, one of the nominees can be saved from the chopping block if they or another Housemate wins the Power of Veto competition and chooses to save one of the nominees, while giving themselves immunity from nomination. If they choose to use the veto power, the Head of Household must immediately choose another nominee.

After last night's eviction, the houseguests competed in a competition called "Pay Attention" to see who would become the next Head of Household. James Rhine, the 30-year-old Loss Prevention Manager originally from Miami, Fla. and currently residing in Chicago, Ill., won the coveted position.

BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS follows the relationships and conflicts of players who live together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the houseguests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months, the last remaining houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000. While living together in a confined space won't be anything new to the Houseguests, choosing between any pre-existing relationships and building new alliances could be a challenge.

BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS is broadcast each week on Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Thursdays (8:00-9:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) and Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). The Thursday broadcast, hosted by Julie Chen, will feature the live eviction of one of the houseguests.
