'Big Brother' recap: Miesha Tate wins HoH again and nominates Carson Kressley and Cynthia Bailey for eviction

Big Brother featured former UFC champion Miesha Tate winning Head of Household for the second time this season and then nominating Carson Kressley and Cynthia Bailey for eviction during Wednesday night's Season 3 episode on CBS.
Miesha put Carson, a designer and former Queer Eye star eye star, on the chopping block next to his closest ally, Cynthia, model and former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, heading into the next Power of Veto competition with Carson being her real target.
"Carson, I think you are just such a lovely human being, and I've really enjoyed getting to know you in here. Regardless of what happens, I hope we can continue our friendship outside of this house," Miesha announced at the Nomination Ceremony.
"Cynthia, I think you are just a beautiful and strong woman, and I've really enjoyed getting to know you. Unfortunately, our game just hasn't aligned so far inside these walls, but I hope that it will on the outside."
Going back to Mirai Nagasu's ouster on Day 13 of Celebrity Big Brother 3, Mirai's good pal, comedian Chris Kattan, addressed the cast over Mirai's unanimous vote, complaining about how Mirai should have stayed because the Olympic medalist really wanted to compete.
However, former N'SYNC member Chris Kirkpatrick said everyone wants to play -- except for Chris Kattan, apparently -- and former Miss USA Shanna Moakler agreed Mirai was "a fierce competitor" who would've taken everybody out one by one.
When the next HoH competition commenced, Chris Kirkpatrick was unable to participate as the outgoing HoH.
The competition required the participating celebrities to strip down into their swimsuits and take a dip in the hot tub. However, there was a catch: the houseguests had to keep three buttons pressed at once while undressing.
If a button was not pressed, the game clock would run 10 times faster. If two buttons were not pressed, the clock would run 30 times faster. If a person let all three buttons go, the clock would run 60 times faster than normal. That meant every second of real time counted as a whole minute on a celebrity's game clock.
Once in his or her bathing suit, the celebrity must jump into the hot tub and press a button on a buoy to lock in his or her time. The houseguest to complete the competition in the fastest time would become the new Head of Household.
Miesha ended up winning the HoH competition with a fast time of five minutes and 50 seconds. Todrick finished in a close second place with a time of six minutes and 54 seconds.
Cynthia, on the other hand, landed in last place with a slow time of 70 minutes and 46 seconds.
Cynthia hoped Miesha would honor Chris Kattan's request to leave the house so she could stay and continue competing at least another week.
"Our last ditch effort is to get out Chris Kattan this week and then either me, you, Cynthia or Carson wins the HoH this week," Chris Kirkpatrick told Shanna. "We have a shot."
Miesha, however, wasn't gunning for Chris Kattan because she said he wasn't a threat to her.
Todrick told Miesha that he wanted to target Chris Kirkpatrick in fear the former boyband member would gun for him again at the next opportunity, but Miesha wanted to clip Carson's wing, still believing he would run away with this game if not taken out early enough.
