Adria breaks tie by booting Will; America’s choice involves CBS soap opera.

Adria breaks tie by booting Will; America’s choice involves CBS soap opera.
Will was voted out of the Big Brother 5 house last night by the HOH who put him up for eviction: Adria. She broke a tie vote by, as Zap2it.com puts it, “flipp[ing] a coin in her head and Will got the wrong side.” Earlier, she was shocked that “stabbing two different people in the back could possibly make her into a target.” Will refused to hug her goodbye and said, “If karma is a boomerang, I’ll see you sooner rather than later.” He’ll be the first member of the jury. Meanwhile, fresh off of shamelessly whoring a fellow Viacom company’s crappy film (Defamer has the details of this “shitergy” and the story of how the houseguest’s true reaction to the film was handled by the always-ethical producers), CBS is now giving the houseguests the prize of a lifetime. The America’s Choice Poll will let us decide which houseguest gets to be on an episode of The Young and the Restless, which coincidentally airs on CBS. The crew at TVGasm is campaigning/begging for America to select Cowboy/Michael. And their rationale is pretty persuasive: “Imagine the wonderful, beautiful magical world of the soap opera; soft lenses, blurry flowers, bad piano music, and this guy…I mean look at his freakin photo.”
