Big Brother: 'Til Death Do You Part Houseguests Send Parker and Jen Out the Door
CBS details the latest "Big Brother" elimination.

[via press release from CBS]

"BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART" HOUSEGUESTS SEND PARKER AND JEN OUT THE DOOR

Parker Somerville and Jen Diturno are the Second Matched Pair of Houseguests to Officially Be Evicted From the "Big Brother" House

After being nominated for eviction by Alex Coladonato and Amanda Hansen, the first couple to hold Head of Household this season, Parker Somerville and Jen Diturno were evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART House.

Parker and Jen were ousted by a vote of 3-1 by their fellow Houseguests, with every couple voting them out except Natalie and Matt (each couple had one vote and Heads of Household and the eviction nominees do not vote). On Tuesday, Matt and Natalie won the Power of Veto, but chose to leave the nominations as they stood, leaving Parker and partner Jen, along with Jen's real life boyfriend, Ryan Quicksall and his Big Brother partner Allison Nichols on the chopping block.

During last night's live broadcast, Parker Somerville, the 26-year-old paparazzo from Northridge, Calif., and his "Big Brother" match, Jen Diturno, the 26-year-old bartender from Columbus, Ohio, learned their fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART, Parker and Jen were interviewed by Julie Chen about their experience.

The Houseguests compete each Wednesday to become Heads 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 fellow Houseguests for eviction. On the weeks when there are veto challenges, one of the nominated couples can be saved from the chopping block if they, or another pair, wins the Power of Veto. If they choose to use the veto power, the Heads of Household must immediately nominate another couple.

After last night's eviction, the Houseguests competed in a game called "Big Brother Democracy," in which couples were presented with six questions and had to pick the answer they thought the majority of the house would select in order to accumulate points. The couple with the most points would become the next Heads of Household. Chelsia Hart, the 21-year-old college student from Cedar Falls, Iowa and her partner James Zinkand, the 21-year-old riding his bicycle around the world and originally from Sarasota, Fla., won the coveted position.

BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART is broadcast three nights weekly, on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and Sundays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT). Julie Chen serves as host. The live weekly eviction broadcasts air on Wednesdays.

BIG BROTHER: 'TIL DEATH DO YOU PART is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
