Kaysar returns to the Big Brother 6 house after Sarah’s eviction

The Big Brother 6 door opened to let Sarah out, and then opened again to let Kaysar back in the house. Sarah was evicted by a vote of 6 to 1.

Kaysar, who was clearly the online fan favorite, received an incredible 82 percent of the America’s Choice vote, conspiracy theories be damned. Julie told us that “the response was overwhelming. More than five million votes were cast.” If my math is right, and it rarely is, that means that more than 4.1 million votes alone were for Kaysar. Holy crap.

Michael received the fewest number of votes, and thus wasted a lot of time in sequester. Eric hugged Kaysar and then went home; earlier, he was surprised to learn that Kaysar was voted off the week after Eric left.

When the show ended, the houseguests were in the middle of an endurance HOH competition that had overly complicated rules, but basically consisted of them holding down buttons while locked in a greenhouse. The HOH will be announced on Saturday’s episode; as of midnight ET, they were all still competing.
