"BIG BROTHER 8" HOUSEGUESTS GIVE NICK HIS WALKING PAPERS WHILE TWO-TIME NOMINEE KAIL REMAINS IN THE HOUSE

Nick Starcevic Is The Fourth Houseguest To Officially Be Evicted From The BIG BROTHER 8 House   

The New Head of Household Will Be Announced on Sunday, Aug. 5  

            Nick Starcevic, a backdoor nominee for eviction, was evicted last night from the BIG BROTHER 8 House in a vote of 6-2 (Head of Household and the two eviction nominees do not vote). 

          This past Tuesday, Jameka won the Power of Veto and took Jen, who was nominated for eviction for the second time, off of the chopping block.  Kail was left up for eviction and Head of Household Dustin Erikstrup then chose Nick Starcevic to join her. 

          During last night's LIVE broadcast, the 25-year-old former pro football player from Kimball, Minn., learned his fate and left the House.  After leaving BIG BROTHER 8, Nick was interviewed by Julie Chen about his experience. 

          Each Thursday, immediately following the eviction ceremony, the remaining Houseguests compete to become Head of Household.  The perks of the position include a luxurious private bedroom and bathroom, along with a plasma screen spy cam to monitor the activities of the other Houseguests. However, it also includes the responsibility of having to nominate two fellow Houseguests for eviction.  On the weeks when there are veto challenges, one of the Houseguests has the opportunity to win the Power of Veto which rewards them immunity from eviction if they are currently nominated.  If the winner is not up for eviction, they can choose to remove one of the Houseguests who is nominated which then forces the current Head of Household to immediately nominate another Houseguest for eviction. 

            After last night's eviction, the Houseguests competed in a competition called "Time's Up" to see who would become the next Head of Household.  The new Head of Household will be announced on Sunday, Aug. 5 on BIG BROTHER 8.
