twin Natalie leaves the house; did Julie Chen screw up the HOH competition?

twin Natalie leaves the house; did Julie Chen screw up the HOH competition?
The twins are no longer together in the Big Brother 5 house, as Natalie was voted out of the house by a 4 to 1 vote. After Nakomis nominated both twins, Adria won the veto power, and then proved her commitment to her sister Natalie by saving herself. Also during last night’s episode, the HOH competition left Marvin in charge this week. However, TVGasm reports that incompetent host Julie Chen may have screwed up the HOH competition. Julie said that “The first person to sink a put, and whose ball goes all the way to the bottom of the tube, wins the round.” As TVGasm points out, and proves with video, “In the second round Marvin sunk his put 1st, but Karen’s ball made it ‘all the way to the bottom of the tube’ first.” In other news, Marvin won the America’s Choice poll, and he’ll be on The Young and the Restless on Monday.
