FIVE PLAYERS REMAIN AFTER A SURPRISE DOUBLE EVICTION LAST NIGHT ON "BIG BROTHER 10"

Michelle Costa and Ollie Were Both Evicted

BIG BROTHER 10 is down to the final five players now that two of the Houseguests fell victim to last night's live double eviction show. After the Houseguests learned that a second Houseguest would face eviction, the Head of Household competition, nomination ceremony, Veto competition and a second eviction all took place within the one-hour live broadcast. After being nominated for eviction by Head of Household Dan, Michelle was the seventh Houseguest evicted by a vote of 3 to 1. On Sunday, Jerry and Memphis were nominated for eviction. On Tuesday, Memphis won the Power of Veto and chose to remove himself from the block. Dan chose to replace him with a stunned Michelle.

Following the first eviction, the Houseguests competed for Head of Household in a competition called "Big Brother Headlines." Prior to the competition, America had the opportunity to vote online to decide which fictional newspaper headlines best describe the remaining Houseguests. For instance, a sample headline read "Big Brother Houseguest Blows All Their Winnings in Las Vegas." The Houseguests then had to determine how America voted. Keesha had the most correct answers and was named Head of Household. She had to immediately put two people up for eviction and chose Jerry and Ollie. The Houseguests then had to compete for the Power of Veto by searching through bales of hay for two Veto symbols and placing them on a podium. Dan won the Power of Veto and chose not to use it leaving the original nominees on the block. The second live vote for the evening was held and, by a unanimous vote of 3 to 0, Ollie was evicted from the BIG BROTHER 10 house.

Following their evictions, Michelle a 28-year-old real estate agent from Cumberland, R.I., and Ollie, a 27-year-old marketing sales representative from Bloomington, Minn. (suburb of Minneapolis), were interviewed by host Julie Chen about their experience in the house. They join April and Libra as the third and fourth jury members.

The Houseguests:

Angie Swindell, Orlando, Fla. via Virginia Beach, Va. - Evicted on Thursday, July 31

April Dowling, Higley, Ariz. via Arlington, Neb. - Evicted on Thursday, August 21

Brian Hart, San Francisco - Evicted on Wednesday, July 16

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguests will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan and Scott Einziger, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
