Big Brother Houseguests Vote to Evict James, But in a Surprise Twist He Re-Enters the Game
CBS details the latest "Big Brother" elimination.

[via press release from CBS]

BIG BROTHER HOUSEGUESTS VOTE TO EVICT JAMES, BUT IN A SURPRISE TWIST HE RE-ENTERS THE GAME

James Is Out and Then He's Back In

During last night's live broadcast, James Zinkand, 21, who is riding his bicycle around the world and originally from Sarasota, Fla., was evicted by a vote of 5-1. After leaving BIG BROTHER, James was interviewed by Julie Chen about his experience in the House, but then in a surprise twist, the Houseguests who voted to send James packing were given the opportunity to vote him back into the game.

Head of Household Ryan originally nominated Sharon and Chelsia for eviction. When Chelsia won the Power of Veto and took herself off of the block, Ryan was then forced to replace her. In a surprise move, Ryan chose to put James on the chopping block.

During last night's live show, host Julie Chen announced that with a vote of 5-1, James was evicted by his fellow Houseguests. During his interview with Chen, James was told in a surprise twist that he would have a chance to re-enter the House.

Chen then instructed the Houseguests that they would have the opportunity to bring someone back into the House. In an online vote, America had the opportunity to pick from the six previously evicted Houseguests. Those in the House were then faced with the decision to either bring back newly evicted James or the winner of America's vote, who was identified as a "Mystery Houseguest" to make their choice more challenging. In a 5-3 vote, James was allowed to re-enter the House.

After last night's eviction, the Houseguests competed in a game called "Big Brother Disco," in which each Houseguest had to stand on their own swinging disco ball suspended from a giant truss. Once the Houseguests were perched on their disco ball, the balls were raised in the air. The last one to endure and remain on their ball the longest wins Head of Household. The new Head of Household will be announced during Sunday's broadcast.

Adam Jasinski, Delray Beach, Fla. via Cherry Hill, NJ

Alex Coladonato, Staten Island, NY - Evicted 2/27 with Amanda

Allison Nichols , Boston - Evicted on 3/5

Amanda Hansen, Fridley, Minn. - Evicted 2/27 with Alex
