Big Brother Houseguests Send Alex and Amanda Packing!
CBS details the latest "Big Brother" elimination.

[via press release from CBS]

"BIG BROTHER" HOUSEGUESTS SEND ALEX AND AMANDA PACKING!

Amanda Hansen and Alex Coladonato are the Third Matched Pair of Houseguests to Officially Be Evicted From the "Big Brother" House

After being nominated for eviction by Chelsia Hart and James Zinkand, Alex Coladonato and Amanda Hansen were evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER House.

Alex and Amanda were ousted by a unanimous vote of 3-0 by their fellow Houseguests (each couple had one vote and Heads of Household and the eviction nominees do not vote). On Tuesday, Joshuah and Sharon won the Power of Veto, but chose to leave the nominations as they stood, leaving Alex and partner Amanda, along with Matt and Natalie on the chopping block.

During last night's live broadcast, Alex Coladonato, the 24-year-old DJ company owner from Staten Island, N.Y. and his "Big Brother" match, Amanda Hansen, the 23-year-old paralegal from Fridley, Minn., learned their fate and left the House. After leaving BIG BROTHER, Alex and Amanda 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 Housemates 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 for eviction.

After last night's eviction, the Houseguests competed in a game called "Words of Love," in which Houseguests were quizzed on which love quotes posted around the house belong to which author. If a Houseguest buzzed in and answered incorrectly they were eliminated from the game. If a Houseguest was correct, they were able to choose another Houseguest to be bumped from the competition. The last Houseguest standing would, along with their partner, become the next Heads of Household. Sharon Obermueller, the 23-year-old realtor from Olathe, Kan. and her partner Joshuah Welch, the 25-year-old Advertising Media Buyer from Dallas, Tex., won the coveted position.

BIG BROTHER is broadcast three nights weekly, 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 is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
