all four house guests nominate George, and he flips out.
On last night’s live episode of Big Brother, the house guests nominated each other live. All four nominated George, who was dressed as a spaceman, and upon learning that he had four nominations–meaning every other person had voted for him–he basically flipped out, babbling “it’s okay, it’s okay, it’s okay.” Before that, right after George made his nominations, he revealed the cause of his bizarre behavior, saying, “My brain is like toast. I’ve been beat up so damn bad in here.” On Wednesday’s live show, one of the four marked for banishment will be evicted from the house: George, Eddie, Jamie or Curtis. Josh received zero nominations.
