After being nominated for eviction by Marcellas Reynolds, the second Head of Household, Tonya Paoni was evicted from the BIG BROTHER 3 house based on the votes of her fellow HouseGuests. Tonya received more votes than fellow nominee Josh Feinberg. Danielle Reyes won the Power of Veto and chose to leave the nominations as they stood.

During last night's live broadcast, the retail sales specialist from Las Vegas learned her fate, said her good-byes and left the house. After leaving BIG BROTHER 3, Tonya was interviewed by Julie Chen about her experience.

Tonya received five of the eight votes for eviction from fellow HouseGuests Eric Ouellette, Roddy Mancuso, Amy Crews, Danielle Reyes and Roddy Mancuso. Josh received three votes from Gerald Lancaster, Chiara Berti and Lisa Donahue. As Head of Household, Marcellas was ineligible to vote unless there had been a tie.
