'Big Brother' evicts Kalia Booker, determines final four houseguests

Big Brother evicted Kalia Booker during Wednesday night's broadcast of the thirteenth season's ninth eviction show.
Kalia, a 30-year-old writer from Philadelphia, PA who currently resides in Los Angeles, CA, was evicted from theBig Brother house on Day 68 after she was placed on the chopping block by former twelfth-season houseguest Rachel Reilly, who had been the season's tenth Head of Household.
Rachel, a 27-year-old chemistry graduate student and VIP cocktail waitress from Las Vegas, NV, had nominated Kalia for eviction along with Porsche Briggs, a 23-year-old VIP Cocktail Waitress from Fort Lauderdale, FL who currently resides in Miami Beach, FL.
Adam Poch, a 39-year-old music industry manager from East Brunswick, NJ, then won the subsequent Power of Veto competition but opted to keep Rachel's nominations unchanged -- leading to Kalia's ouster when Rachel used her HoH power to break the 1-1 tie which resulted from the eviction votes of Adam and eleventh-seasonBig Brother winner Jordan Lloyd, a 24-year-old receptionist from Matthews, NC.
Following Kalia's eviction, the remaining houseguests -- minus Rachel, who as the outgoing HoH, was ineligible to compete -- competed in the season's eleventh Head of Household competition.
Dubbed "Big Brother Fortune Teller," the competition required each houseguest to answer whether questions pertaining to fortunes the Big Brother house's fortune teller had revealed about previously eliminated thirteenth-season contestants throughout the night prior were true or false.
After determining whether or not each quote read aloud was accurate, the houseguests would receive one point for each correct answer. The first person to reach the most points out of six questions -- six total possible points -- would be crowned the season's next HoH.
Adam won the competition and became HoH for the first time all season, guaranteeing himself a spot in the final three.
