After being nominated for eviction by Marvin Latimer, the second Head of Household, Lori Valenti was evicted last night from the Big Brother 5 house by her fellow houseguests.

On Tuesday, Jase Wirey won the Power of Veto and took Holly King off the block. Marvin then chose to put Karen O’Neil Ganci on the block in Holly’s place. During last night's live broadcast, the yoga instructor from Boston, MA, learned her fate, said her good-byes and left the house. After leaving Big Brother 5, Lori was interviewed by Julie Chen about her experience.

Lori received seven votes for eviction from houseguests Adria Okins, Jennifer Dedmon, Holly King, Jase Wirey, Michael Ellis, Drew Daniel and Scott Long. Will Wikle and Diane Henry voted to evict Karen. Marvin was ineligible to vote as Head of Household unless there was a tie.

After the eviction, the houseguests competed in a competition called “High/Low” to see who would become the next Head of Household. Drew, the 22-year-old recent college graduate from Urbana, OH, won the coveted position.

Each Thursday, the houseguests compete to become Head of Household. The perks of the position include having a luxurious private bedroom stocked with favorite foods and use of the new plasma screen to spy on the other houseguests, but it also includes the responsibility of having to nominate two fellow housemates for eviction. However, one of the nominees can be saved from the chopping block if they or another housemate wins the Power of Veto competition and chooses to save one of the nominees while giving themselves immunity from nomination. If they choose to use the veto, the Head of Household must immediately choose another nominee.

Big Brother 5 is broadcast three nights a week on Tuesdays, (9-10PM ET/PT), Thursdays (8-9PM ET/PT) and Saturdays, (9-10PM ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
