Former Mean Girls star Jonathan Bennett became the first celebrity to be evicted from season two of Celebrity Big Brother on Friday night as he lost out to both Joey Lawrence and Kandi Burruss in a 6-1 vote.
Before we get to the eviction, we have one supposed ‘big twist’ to get to surrounding Anthony Scaramucci’s departure. Big Brother claims The Mooch was never a houseguest to begin with, and that this twist was planned from the start. But I have a tough time believing that since host Julie Chen Moonves usually tells fans of all upcoming twists beforehand; it just smells like Mooch wanted out so production did their best to accommodate him and scrambled to find a way to explain it.
Ryan puts Kandi up in The Mooch’s place and we head to the second Power of Veto competition that is all about Anthony. The celebs had to decide how many true headlines were in a pile of giant “newspapers”. Kato won it but this just screamed “last minute competition.” He decided to take Tom off the block and replaced him with Joey.
It was finally time for the live vote and eviction. Everyone, but Dina, voted to evict Jonathan, so the movie star was sent packing on a 6-1 vote.
Following his eviction, Jonathan left the house and spoke with Julie about his time and what went wrong.
“Getting an Olympic gold medalist to team up with was a big mistake,” Jonathan said of his partnership with Ryan.
However, Julie reminded him he had three chances to save himself and he stuck his neck out for Dina Lohan.
“It was way harder,” he said of his experience. “I couldn’t tell you how hard it is to be in there. It is the best and craziest experience you’ll ever have.”
