AFTER A BIZARRE WEEK INSIDE THE "BIG BROTHER 8" HOUSE, HOUSEGUESTS VOTE UNANIMOUSLY TO GET JEN OFF THE PREMISES
Jen Became the First Houseguest in Big Brother History to Receive a Penalty Vote
Jen Becomes the Seventh Houseguest Evicted From the BIG BROTHER 8 House and the Second Jury Member
Jessica Wins Head Of Household
After Jen's erratic behavior on BIG BROTHER 8 this week, Jen became the seventh Houseguest to be evicted from the BIG BROTHER 8 House by a unanimous vote by her fellow Houseguests (the two nominees do not vote and the Head of Household only votes in the event of a tie). Last night, Jen had one vote against her before any of the votes were cast because when she went off slop earlier in the week and was issued the first penalty vote in Big Brother history for breaking the food restriction rule.
On Tuesday, Daniele Donato won the Power of Veto and took Amber off the chopping block. Jameka was left up for eviction and Daniele nominated Jen to join her. Blindsided and angry that Daniele "backdoored" her, a frustrated Jen destroyed Dick's cigarettes, went off of slop to eat regular food and talked about refusing to go to the sequester house if she was evicted.
During last night's broadcast, Jen, 23, from Beverly Hills, Calif., learned her fate, said her goodbyes and left the house. After leaving the BIG BROTHER 8 house, Jen was interviewed by host Julie Chen about her experience. Jen becomes the second jury member, joining Dustin, who will help select a winner during the BIG BROTHER 8 Finale on Tuesday, Sept. 18.
After last night's eviction, the houseguests competed in a competition called "Dunk Tanks For the Memories," in which Houseguests sat in a dunk tank answering poll questions on former Houseguests. Houseguests who answered incorrectly were dunked and eliminated and the last person to remain dry would become the next Head of Household. Jessica won the coveted position.
