'Big Brother' houseguests evict Judd Daugherty from the house and crown new Head of Household

Big Brother's houseguests evicted Judd Daugherty and crowned their thirteenth Head of Household during Wednesday night's special eviction broadcast of the CBS reality competition's fifteenth season.
Judd, a 26-year-old property appraiser from Englewood, TN who currently resides in Etowah, TN, was evicted from the Big Brother house via a 2-0 vote after being placed on the chopping block by the season's twelfth Head of Household -- Spencer Clawson, a 31-year-old conductor from Conway, AR.
"[I used] reverse psychology! I want them to go after [Spencer and Andy Herren]," Judd told Big Brother host Julie Chen following his eviction, referring to how he had mentioned he was going to vote for either Spencer or Andy at the end of the game on his way out of the house.
"[GinaMarie Zimmerman], at the beginning, I underestimated her. We all did. She's an awesome game player, she's very loyal. I'd really like to see her win this whole thing. She deserves it, and I wouldn't have said that a few weeks ago... I think they trust her a little bit more than me."
Spencer -- who, for the first time all summer, was afforded the chance to make the nominations rather than be one -- initially nominated GinaMarie, a 32-year-old pageant coordinator from Brooklyn, NY who currently resides in Staten Island, NY, and McCrae Olson, a 23-year-old pizza delivery person from Zimmerman, MN who currently resides in Oak Grove, MN.
When Spencer made his nominations announcement, he told the group McCrae had violated his trust and GinaMarie had previously put him on the block twice and was a fierce competitor.
Behind the scenes, GinaMarie asked Spencer to nominate her to conceal they were working together. Spencer made McCrae think he was on the chopping block just as a pawn so he wouldn't try really hard to win the upcoming Power of Veto competition. Spencer insisted he was targeting GinaMarie instead and wanted McCrae in his Final 4 with Judd and Andy, a 26-year-old professor from Aurora, IL who currently resides in Chicago, IL.
However, Spencer and GinaMarie were actually in a Final 4 "Exterminators" alliance together with Judd and Andy. GinaMarie assisted in keeping McCrae calm by also promising him an empty Final 2 deal. McCrae barely trusted anyone in the house, rightfully so, but at least had hope GinaMarie was telling him the truth.
Spencer warned Judd he'd be his replacement nominee if either GinaMarie or McCrae was to win the PoV. Judd, who only recently re-entered the game after winning a competition amongst the season's evictees, realized he was at the bottom of his alliance's totem pole and flipped out. He assumed Spencer would nominate Andy before himself.
McCrae subsequently won the PoV and took himself off the chopping block.
Spencer was frustrated Judd basically quit the PoV competition halfway through and trusted GinaMarie more, so he followed through with his plan to name Judd the replacement nominee. When Judd heard the news, he announced he was only going to go after McCrae if his houseguests decided to keep him around.
Following Judd's eviction, the remaining houseguests -- minus Spencer, who as the outgoing HoH was deemed ineligible to participate -- competed in the season's thirteenth Head of Household competition.
Dubbed "Before or After," Julie asked the houseguests a series of questions about events that took place this past summer. Their goal was to answer whether an event happened before or after a second event Julie described. They received one point for every correct answer, and the first player to earn seven points would win HoH.
Andy ended up winning the competition, so he secured himself a spot in the Final 3 and will still be allowed to compete in the season's final HoH competition.
Andy will name his nominations during Thursday night's broadcast and one more houseguest will ultimately be evicted.
