And Then There Were Two!! Zach Is Voted Out of the Big Brother House by Dick, Leaving Two Houseguests at the Mercy of the Jury for the Grand Prize
CBS details the latest "Big Brother" elimination.

[via press release from CBS]


LOS ANGELES - After hanging tough for many weeks, Zach, was voted out by Dick after losing to him in the final leg of the three-part Head of Household competition. The 30-year-old graphic designer from Burbank, Calif., was booted out by Dick live on Thursday, Sept. 13.

Now, Dick and his daughter Daniele are the final two houseguests, one of whom will receive the grand prize of $500,000 on the BIG BROTHER 8 live finale to be broadcast on Tuesday, Sept. 18 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

In the first of a three-part Head of Household competition, Zach, Daniele and Dick competed in the "Bunny Hop" endurance competition in which each Houseguest had to stand on a pedestal holding onto a dangling key while jumping over a bar that continuously rotated in a circle. The Houseguest who held onto their key the longest won Part One of the HOH competition and would face off against the winner of Part 2. Zach won the first competition on Tuesday night's show. On last night's live show Dick won the second part of the HOH competition, "Chain of Command," in which he and Daniele competed against each other to complete a puzzle underwater in the fastest time. In the final leg of the HOH competition, Dick and Zach competed in "Last Word," in which they had to answer questions that were asked to Jury House members. The person who answered the most questions correctly would win. Dick emerged victorious and immediately evicted Zach live on the air.

Following Zach's eviction, he was interviewed by host Julie Chen about his experience in the house.

Zach joins Dustin, Jen, Amber, Jessica, Eric and Jameka on the jury who will decide the grand prize winner of $500,000 on the live finale broadcast.
