THE EVICTION Julie announces to the gathered HouseGuests that for the first time in BIG BROTHER 3, there is a tie in the eviction voting. As HoH, the tiebreaker vote falls to Gerry. Gerry reiterates his strategy of looking at the nomination/eviction like a chess move, and states that he loves both Eric and Lisa. That said, Gerry votes to evict Eric. The rest of the group reacts with silence as Eric hugs Lisa and moves to the door. Everyone follows, and Eric leaves after exchanging quiet goodbyes with the other HouseGuests.
As he makes his way to the studio for a chat with Julie Chen, the inside of the House is completely quiet. Eric settles in and tells Julie that he's ""not happy"" about the outcome. Of the other HouseGuests, Eric says he's only disappointed in Gerry, not just for voting him out, but for trying to be all things to all people. He says he doesn't regret anything in the House, including his romance with Lisa, even though it ""didn't help me as much as it should have.""
