Big Brother 8: Episode 28, Special Double Eviction Live Thoughts
Big Brother 8: Episode 28, Special Double Eviction Live Thoughts
This is it, the biggest, most important Big Brother episode of the season.  Who will be evicted first, Jessica or Jameka?  How will the contestants react when told that tonight two people will be leaving the house?  Can either of the power alliances stay intact?  Will Dick and Daniele end the night with a stranglehold on the $500,000?  I don't know, but I am visibly excited.  If tonight is like last season's double eviction episode, we'll start off with the first live eviction, have a quick HoH competition, then the veto comp and ceremony, followed by the second live eviction.  Should be a whirlwind.  I'll be here throughout the hour giving up-to-the minute updates on the proceedings.
Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.



I've been staying away from any online spoilers because I'm holding out hope that Dani and Dick stay true to their word and keep Jessica around.  I doubt it'll happen, but one can always hope. 

Yep, it's confirmed.  They're going to compete in a week's worth of events over the next hour.  Good times.

Eric is still at the whim of America in the second eviction vote.  America can phone-in their live votes to choose who America votes.  That is, if Eric isn't on the block, which is a strong possibility. 

Dick and Daniele seem pretty set up on voting Jessica out.  They rationalize it, making themselves feel better.  Dick tells Jameka early in the week that she'll be going home, all with the intention of of offering a deal immediately before tonight's live show. 

Eric keeps reassuring Jess that she'll be safe.  Eric asks Dani straight up if Jess is going home.  Dani says she'll be fine. 

Julie drops the double eviction bomb on the houseguests.  They're stunned. 

Jameka and Jessica make their speeches. Jameka is calm, and Jess is on the verge of tears.

Already time for the live vote. 

Eric's votes to evict Jameka, obviously. 

Dick votes to evict Jessica.  And so does Dani.

Jessica has been voted out of the Big Brother house.  Unfortunate.

Jessica gives everyone their hugs.  She forgoes hugs from Dani and Dick, heads straight for Eric.  She's crying.  Jameka is devastated.  Emotionally, Jameka and Eric need to pull it together for these competitions tonight. 

Jessica says that she and Eric were genuine and she'll leave the door open for a relationship with Eric outside.   Eric's going away message is tearful, and he even uses the phrase “defend your honor”. 

HoH competition comes up after the break.  Man, I want Eric to win this and put up Dick and Daniele.  Him and the Donatos are the only ones competing.  Should be a war.

All right, time for the Head of Household competition.  Eric, Daniele, and Dick.  Everything is on the line.  The game is called “Before and After”.  Julie asks questions that involve two events in the house and the houseguests have to guess which one was before or after.  Julie will ask 8 questions, whoever has the most after eight questions wins.

It's all tied after seven questions.  Aw, man.  Eric choked it out.  Dick wins Head of Household.  I wonder who's going on the block?  I think Dick is going to do Eric a solid and not nominate him.  We'll see. 

Back inside the house, Dick is visibly nervous about the nominations. 

Dick nominates Jameka and Eric.  I wonder who he and Dani want out.  And we go right back tom commercial.  Wow, that was annoyingly quick.

Now, we're at the PoV competition.  They're all wearing helmets and goggles.  The game is called “Niagra Balls,” which is a really bad porn name.  Over 5,000 rubber balls fall down into the backyard and the houseguests have to collect eight green balls to win. 

Everyone is yelling “Ow,” a lot.  Looks lie it hurt.  Things are getting physical.  Zach wins the Power of Veto.  I'm betting he doesn't use it.

Time for the veto ceremony.  Jameka is on the verge of tears, Eric makes a pitch to stay in the house.  Zach doesn't use the veto, and we go straight back to commercials. 

It's time again for a live eviction.  Jameka and Eric make their pleas.  Eric kind of berates Dick and Daniele for betraying him. 

Zach votes to evict Eric. 

Daniele votes to Eric. 

Ouch.  You might as well hand the money to the Donatos.  Eric can now join Eric in the sequester house.    Eric is humble and kind in his eviction, telling everyone that he has no ill will and that it was all understandable. 

Eric admits that being America's Player was very difficult.  Eric echoes Jess's sentiments that their relationship was genuine.

We're not getting another Head of Household tonight, it'll come on Sunday.
