Adria evicted, and will be followed out the door by someone else on Saturday.
The Big Brother 5 twin twist is now officially over, as the only remaining twin has been evicted from the house. Adria was booted by a unanimous vote. Drew is the new HOH, and he’ll have to make his decisions rapidly: On Saturday evening’s episode at 9 p.m. ET, we’ll see a veto competition and another eviction. (If you want to know who Drew nominated, go here.) The doubling up allows producers to stay on schedule to end our suffering on schedule, as Jam! Showbiz explains. The finale will air Tuesday, Sept. 21.
+ also: episode “full of bizzaro fights, schemes, and facial expressions” plus “”malfunctioning robots like Julie Chen.”
