Big Brother 6[]

On Day 12, it was revealed to the House that all housemates would face the public vote as a result of one housemate breaking the rules regarding the discussion of nominations; this housemate was Vanessa. On Day 15, Vanessa survived the public vote and Lesley was evicted from the House. Big Brother told the housemates that the nominations on Day 46 were optional. However, this was a lie. As always, nominations were compulsory; and those that did not nominate would face the public vote. As Vanessa did not nominate, she faced the public vote. On Day 50, it was revealed to the House that Vanessa and Makosi had received the most public votes after receiving 26% and 47% of the vote respectively. The housemates were then told to decide which of the two should be evicted from the House. Vanessa was evicted from the House on Day 50 after receiving 6 of the 7 votes against her.
