Heading into the first live eviction episode of “Celebrity Big Brother 3,” Head of Household Miesha Tate had nominated Mirai Nagasu (her true target) and Carson Kressley (just a pawn). But things quickly change within the ‘BB’ house and it wasn’t long before Todrick Hall got in Miesha’s ear and convinced the MMA fighter that Carson was the real threat to win this game. With the crosshairs now on Carson (unbeknownst to him), the “Queer Eye” O.G. dominated the Veto competition and took himself off the block. Miesha had no choice but to replace Carson with Teddi Mellencamp, who she had guaranteed safety earlier in the week.
Host Julie Chen Moonves had a surprise up her sleeve at the live eviction ceremony. Cynthia Bailey was asked to come to the front of the living room and change the logo of her MON WON hat upside down, to read NOM NOW. The houseguests then passed the hat around, knowing the last person to receive the designer accessory would immediately go on the block and be forced to choose who they replace. Todd Bridges fell victim to the MON WON curse and chose to replace Mirai on the block. With Todd and Teddi as the nominees, Teddi was evicted by a vote of 5-3.

8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘Celebrity Big Brother 3’!” In the third episode, the “Formation” alliance came crashing down as Todrick Hall formed a final two deal with Miesha Tate and turned on his “Drag Race” pal Carson Kressley. With lines drawn in the sand, Carson pulled himself off the block by winning the Veto, forcing Miesha and Todrick to focus on Carson’s closest ally in the game, Teddi Mellencamp. Not even a surprise twist from Julie that forced Todd Bridges onto the block in place of Mirai could save Teddi, who became the first player voted out of the house. Which celebrity will win tonight’s HOH competition? And which two houseguests will they nominate for eviction?
8:10 p.m. – Mirai is excited she survived eviction night and Chris Kattan is a bit shaken up. He ultimately decided that Todd would go on the block and now he’s got an enemy. Carson is hell-bent on targeting Miesha and seems oblivious to the fact that Todrick was really calling all of Miesha’s shots. Now Carson and Cynthia feel like the entire house is against them. Shanna Moakler is concerned that Cynthia is upset with her, but she earned trust points with Chris Kirkpatrick and Miesha. Meanwhile, Todrick is trying to explain himself to Cynthia and promises her safety if he wins HOH. Too late, the trust is broken. Todrick, you’re playing a little too hard a little too fast!
8:22 p.m. – It’s time for the HOH competition! As the outgoing HOH, Miesha is not available to play. In “Rotten Potatoes,” celebrities will have two minutes to roll balls and lock in scores on three “potato-meters.” Each of the three potatoes is a little different and celebrities can spend as much time on each one as they desire, but if they don’t lock in a score they will get a zero. The celebrity with the highest combined score from all three potatoes will be the next HOH. Mirai goes first and sets the bar with a score of 51. Todrick is out with a score of 36. Lamar takes the lead with 61. Chris Kirkpatrick then takes over with a score of 75.
8:35 p.m. – The HOH competition continues with Shanna scoring a 52, Carson scoring 36, Cynthia scoring 46, Todd scoring a 33 and Chris Kattan scoring some abysmal number after failing to lock in the third potato. Chris Kirkpatrick is the new HOH! Todd didn’t even try to win this competition and he’s officially the worst competitor in the house. I was rooting for him to do well in this game, but if he doesn’t care enough to try I’d rather watch people who want to be there duke it out.
8:45 p.m. – Kirkpatrick says he is playing his own game, so if Miesha thinks she has any influence over him, she is sorely mistaken. He is ready to upset a few people with his noms. Later, Kirkpatrick tells Miesha and Todrick that he wants Mirai out of the game. Miesha is quietly mortified by this idea because she just worked so hard to save Mirai for the benefit of their team. Miesha suggests Kirkpatrick go after Carson and Cynthia, which annoys the boy-bander. He pulls Shanna aside and says he doesn’t want Miesha running the house. Kirkpatrick wants to put Mirai on the block next to Todrick. That would cause complete chaos and I’m here for it! Later, Kirkpatrick basically tells Carson and Cynthia that they’re safe.
8:55 p.m. – Carson baked a cake and Chris Kattan gets up nightly to feast on it. He eats from the cake pan so frequently that none of the other houseguests will even touch it. We haven’t seen this much action from Kattan all week! Later, Kirkpatrick asks Lamar and Todd who he should put on the block next to Mirai. They don’t give him a direct answer, but they do pledge their loyalty to vote how he wants them to. Next, Kirkpatrick tells Miesha he’s putting up Mirai. Miesha is still pushing Carson, but Kirkpatrick isn’t interested in evicting Carson. He doesn’t see Carson and Cynthia as this big threat Miesha and Todrick do. She won’t stop pushing him to get rid of Carson and I have a feeling this is going to backfire on her.
8:59 p.m. – It is time for the nomination ceremony. Kirkpatrick has nominated Chris Kattan and Mirai for eviction. He says it’s not personal, but he hasn’t talked game with either of them. Kirkpatrick assures us in the Diary Room that Mirai is his target.
