It's a chaotic night of Big Brother, as we've finally arrived at this season's double eviction. On paper, everything should be fairly straightforward. The Cookout is in control, Claire should go home first, and, barring Alyssa winning the live HOH, she'll be the next to go home. Of course, anything can happen when you're playing HOH and Veto all in the same night, so let's get to the rundown of what happened.
