In the episode, the twins faced off for a bonus spot in the house. After nearly five hours, Alexis made the ultimate sacrifice, giving up the challenge so her sister could stay.

“I have something good to come home to,” Alex said. “It was good for Char and I to spend this time together. It definitely brought us together as sisters and it has always been the best experience. I hope Charlotte wins more than anything.

Mitch won another challenge victory, naming Charlotte H, Gabe and Ari, but Ari was saved from the vote due to a technical foul. Charlotte was eventually sent to pack her bags.

“Everyone’s crazy,” says Charlotte. “People take it way too seriously and I laugh at them like, ‘Oh my God, get a day job.’ I really don’t care. I was running out of clothes and there is no dry cleaning service.

As Charlotte left the house, Gabe had his own news, telling Big Brother he wished to leave.

“I’m struggling mentally, emotionally and physically here at Big Brother,” Gabe said. “I have a hard time finding my voice in this house. There are a lot of loud personalities and I feel like I get smaller when they speak. I’m not well, I had better go.
