America’s Choice will be revealed tonight

Tonight, the most anticipated episode of Big Brother ever will air, as an evicted houseguest re-enters the house as a result of viewer voting.

Will it be Kaysar, who flipped the game with his cerebral game play? Will it be Cappy, who flipped out and whose eviction caused Ivette to completely flip out? Or will it be Michael, who we barely remember?

Also tonight, we’ll find out if the houseguests have decided to evict Sarah or Ivette, who was placed on the block after James saved himself for the fifth time. It’ll be an action-packed hour; hopefully Julie Chen is recharging now to prepare.
