Image Credit: Cliff Lipson/CBSI tried to keep it classy with that headline. It was either that or [BIG, FAT SPOILER ALERT, WEST COASTERS. THIS IS YOUR OFFICIAL WARNING.] “Ding-Dong! The Witch Is Dead.” I figured that’d be a bit much. And don’t blame me for the witch comparison; that was Brendon’s doing. I’m just running with it. P.S. – Thank you, Brendon.

Back to the point: Rachel’s gone, and I’m not sure what to feel. Shall we celebrate with some tequilllaaaa? Or cry (without actually producing tears, of course)? She was a good competitor and interesting enough to watch, but my tolerance for annoying people on television was reaching its limit. A person can only take so much strain three nights a week before they get hauled away by burly men in white.

Speaking of being committed, who knows what Rachel’s absence will do to poor, emotional Brendon. I kind of expected to see him have a Falling Down-style meltdown before the HOH competition. It didn’t happen. *finger snap*

While I work on this week’s TV Watch, sound off below on our fallen houseguest. Will you miss Rachel? Did the house get rid of the right person? Are you a little worried Britney won’t have someone new to make fun of? Oh, I forgot Brendon is still there. Well, she’s good for at least one more week. Whew! And did you believe for even a second that Brendon’s outbursts would keep Rachel safe?

Be sure to check back in the morning for the full recap (UPDATE: Click over for the detailed Big Brother eviction recap now) and Julie Chen’s blog. Oh, we also have a special treat: An exit interview! Submit queries below. This is going to be good…

What ever did you do to deserve all this bounty? I don’t know, but you can try following me on Twitter (@EWSandraG). I hear it’s good karma. Also good karma: Not spoiling HOH for others. Those who want to be spoiled can look here.
