  We're going to do things a little differently today... THE STORY TO COME! Either Haleigh or Sam is going away courtesy of HOH Kaycee, but that's not the only play, because tonight is the annual DOUBLE EVICTION episode! Who makes it all the way to the Final Five? Let's find out!

Kaycee is already expecting that this week is a DEW, so she's making plans to trim Sam and JC with Tyler, Angela, and Brett. Angela offers to fall on the sword during a Veto, but Brett pulls Tyler to talk jury building. Tyler doesn't think he can beat Brett with THAT jury, so he gots to go.

Cue the "Big Brother House, this is Julie, you are live on CBS, please do not swear" as she confirms Kaycee's notion - it's a DOUBLE EVICTION and it starts... RIGHT NOW!

LIVE EVICTION #12: The vote to evict this week is 3. Neither Haleigh nor Sam will be eligible to vote, and HOH Kaycee will only vote to break a tie. And again, the decision is unanimous.
- EVICTED: Haleigh Broucher (4-0)

While Julie roasts Haleigh outside, the remaining houseguests will watch some short video clips of previous competitions. Pay close attention, because your knowledge of these clips could bring you a step closer to being HOH.

HOH COMPETITION #13: Buffering. Remember those videos you watched? You're about to watch them again, HOWEVER they will be stopped by a circle of death, and you'll have to remember what happens next. If you are right, you get a point. Houseguests with the most points wins HOH.
- WINNER: Tyler

NOMINATION CEREMONY #13: Tyler is given only a few minutes to strategize, and remembering the Level 6 pecking order...
- MARKED FOR EVICTION: JC Mounduix, Sam Bledsoe

VETO COMPETITION #13: Block and Roll. Place your colored blocks o a board so that when they roll a ball through the course, it lands in the pocket at the end. First one to do so wins the power of Veto.
- What you may or may not have seen: Tyler asking Brett to throw the Veto competition.
- WINNER: Angela

VETO MEETING #13: Angela plans to take JC off to the point where she and Tyler already have a speech planned to backdoor Brett. "I call this move being one step ahead."
- MARKED FOR EVICTION: "I call this being two steps ahead. Brett, take a seat."

LIVE EVICTION #13: The vote to evict is now 2, with Sam and Brett ineligible. Again, the decision is unanimous.
- EVICTED: Brett Robinson

  Lori took down an impressive champ yesterday. She defends today against...

Shawn Moore
regional human resources manage
Lauren Stripling
New York City
teaching artist

JEOPARDY! ROUND: At 35, Same First & Last Letter, Bad Folks in Books, I Got a Fever, The Only Prescription, More Cowbell.

Kyle starts with $200 More Cowbell. At the TV timeout, Shawn has $3400 to $2200 for Kyle. Lauren has $1600.

Kyle finds the Daily Double under $600 I Got a Fever. He wagers $2000 on this: Random House defines this "fever" as "greed and excitement caused by" it & dates the term to the 1840s. "What is money fever?" No, it was gold fever, dropping him to $3000. He ends up with $3200. With Shawn on $4400 to Lauren's $3800, it was the champ's board to start...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: Ancient Bro-Mans, Principles, Novel Actors, Contractions, Arts & Culture, Place Holders.

.. with $400 Arts & Culture, where Shawn finds the first Daily Double under $1600. He wagers the level on this: he had nothing to do with the title, but Aaron Copland said, "I've begun to see the..." mountains "... myself..." on hearing this piece. "What are the Rockies?" Sorry, it was "Appalachian Spring", dropping him to $4000. Kyle finds the other under $1200 Contractions. He goes for $4000 to tie Shawn on this: a 2015 book says for over 200 years, this word "has been knocking at the door of standard English" but is still shunned. "What is 'ain't'?" GOT IT for the tie on $13,600! He ends in the lead wtih $16,800 to $12,000 for Shawn. Lauren is score-adjusted to $6600, so she's still in with a chance.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Before They Were President": on October 4, 1940, for the premiere of what's been called his most famous movie role, Ronald Reagan was in this city. Correct response: what is South Bend?

If you remember his famous "Win one for the Gipper" in "Knute Rockne: All American", you know the Notre Dame connection. No one did, but Kyle adds another $9599, giving him a two-day total of $38,000!

Keri Buck (Pensacola, FL) has $10,000 and 1 lifeline to start this episode.  She uses the 50:50 at $20,000, then sees this...

Works of art are arranged chronologically, rather than geographically, at the magnificent, newly-opened branch of the Louvre in what city?
A: Abu Dhabi
B: Tokyo
C: Madrid
D: Dubai

Keri thinks it may have to do with the city wanting its museums to arrange chronologically.  She says that C is the only European city of the four.  In the end, she's not sure enough about this, so she walks with $20,000!  The answer is A.

Sam Stubblefield (Wilmington, DE) is up next.  He sweeps the first 5, then asks the audience at $10,000 and calls on his Plus One, Robin, at $20,000.  He then uses the 50:50 to help him secure $50,000!  That will do it for today; Sam goes for $100,000 (and possibly more) tomorrow!

In the nightcap, Megan Turner (Kansas City, MO), with $7,000 and 2 lifelines to start, brings in her Plus One, Greg, at $20,000.  Then, at $30,000, she hopes that 80% of the grains in Jack Daniel's original whiskey recipe is rye, but it's actually corn.  That sends her home with $5,000.

Shane Cunningham (Cookeville, TN) gets to $5,000 with help from the audience, then uses the 50:50 at $20,000.  The episode ends there, so Shane will keep going tomorrow.
