Celebrity Big Brother’s Jonathan Bennett was the first CBB evictee in a shocking blindside. Jonathan Bennett sat on the chopping block along with Kandi Burruss and Joey Lawrence. It was a tough blow to the actor who had worked so hard in the early days of the game and was a fan of the show.
Celebrity Big Brother: Houseguests Send Jonathan Bennett Packing
Jonathan Bennett’s time in the Celebrity Big Brother house was cut short on Friday night’s live eviction. In a vote of 6-1-0 Jonathan was evicted from the house in an almost unanimous vote. Kandi was the recipient of the other vote cast by Dina Lohan. Dina would not betray Jonathan because of his relationship with her family, especially her daughter Lindsay Lohan.
His eviction was unfortunate because Ryan Lochte never nominated him. His ending up on the other side of the CBB front doors was due to him losing in the two-person HoH competition to the Olympic Gold Medalist.

Julie Chen Moonves Tells Jonathan Bennett Exactly Where He Went Wrong
It was bad enough that Jonathan Bennett ended up on the Celebrity Big Brother chopping block on the first day in. But what really sealed his fate was the lack of disclosure to the ladies. Julie Chen Moonves told Jonathan that his devotion to Dina Lohan was the reason behind his eviction. His alliance members – other than Ryan Lochte – rallying against him.
Jonathan didn’t tell Tamar Braxton, Lolo Jones, Natalie Eva Marie and Kandi Burruss critical info. Things like the change of target from Dina to Tom Green. Lolo Jones was especially ticked off to the point where she flipped off the Ryan and Jonathan’s pictures on the memory wall.
As he exited the Celebrity Big Brother house, Jonathan had nothing bad to say about any of his housemates. Although, he did hint that he might be a bitter juror.

Tamar Braxton Shocks CBB Fans By Keeping Rival Kandi Burruss
In a move that surprised Celebrity Big Brother viewers, Tamar Braxton voted out Jonathan Bennett. Most assumed she would target Kandi Burruss because she has been complaining about the real housewife all week. The two have plenty of history outside of the house and have been feuding inside of it. She even tried campaigning to her alliance members to get rid of her.
Everyone else decided to go for Jonathan, so Tamar following suit was a sign of loyalty. Tamar could have just thrown a vote at Kandi and called it a day. This was a demonstration of self-control because we all know she and Kandi have it in for each other.
