Cast member leaves Big Brother 9 house

Following the first eviction, another Big Brother 9 houseguest left the house voluntarily Wednesday night, according to live feed reports that constitute spoilers, since what happened in the house has not yet aired on TV.

The houseguest who left is Neil, one of the two gay cast members. As a result, one of the cast members evicted on Wednesday’s show, which was taped earlier, has returned to partner with Neil’s alleged soulmate.

“Joshuah had the choice between Jacob & Sharon. He chose Sharon. Joshuah didn’t even have a chance to say goodbye to Neil,” according to Big Brother Access. A commenter says “Neil & Josh had kissed in the kitchen this evening for the first time and then Neil was gone a short time later without them having the chance to say goodbye.”
