Matt Surprises the House by Using the Diamond Power of Veto to Save Himself,

Choosing Kathy as His Replacement on the Block

During last night’s live broadcast, Kathy, the 40-year-old Deputy Sheriff from Texarkana, Ark., was blindsided when Matt pulled himself off the block by using the Diamond Power of Veto and chose Kathy as his replacement.  Kathy was evicted by a vote of 5-0.  Following her eviction, she was interviewed by Julie Chen about the experience.

After last night’s BIG BROTHER eviction, the Houseguests competed for Head-of-Household in the “Big Brother Says” competition.  Julie Chen asked the Houseguests questions based on the “Simon Says”-type messages that were played in the house on Wednesday.  Britney answered the most questions correctly and will be the new Head-of-Household.

Lane Elenburg, Decatur, Texas

Ragan Fox, Los Angeles, Calif.

Andrew Gordon, Miami Beach, Fla. – Eliminated July 29
