Busty Tonya is gone -- but who'll be next?

Busty Tonya is gone — but who’ll be next?

You could practically hear the screams coming from inside the CBS executive suites: How in the name of all that is right with the world (or at least the 18-49 male demographic therein) could those Big Brother bozos vote to evict sweet, silicone-enhanced, peanut-butter-groined Tonya over scrawny, hairy, subtle-as-a-sledgehammer Josh in the third week of the series?

But you know what, as much as I’m not looking forward to witnessing more of Josh’s whiny Machiavellianism For Dummies, I have to admit: the pneumatic hoochie-single-mama from Las Vegas deserved to get the boot. For one thing, her strategy seemed to consist solely of praying that her Baywatch boobs would work as well keeping her afloat in the game as they do in that backyard pool.

And then — just like ”BB3”’s well-deserved first evictee, loony Lori — Tonya thought it wise to spend part of her hot-seat week getting all up in a housemate’s face over diddly-squat (Southern belle-icose Amy may or may not have derided Tonya behind her massive-weight-bearing back). Um, darling, as Marcellas so shrewdly pointed out: When you’re on the block, you might want to try being on your best behavior.

Still, Tonya’s departure was a shocker, and it leaves us with two intriguing questions: 1) Now that their busty comrade is gone, will Lisa and Chiara have to give up their plan to eventually wage gender warfare against the male half of their alliance (Roddy, Josh, Eric)? And, 2) Can Danielle — who joined Roddy, Eric, Amy and Jason in voting Tonya out — continue to go undetected as the house’s most accomplished backbiter? One minute she’s in solidarity with ”BB3”’s Heathers (Lisa, Chiara, Tonya), the next minute she’s cozying up to Marcellas — and all the while she’s got this below-the-radar pact with resident altar boy, Jason.

Meanwhile, the week ahead promises to be a steamy one, now that Roddy gets to take up residence in the Head of Household bedroom. Roddy’s kissy-partner, Chiara, will no doubt be clocking a lot of sleepover time chez HOH, and since the duo have been getting increasingly physical even while sharing a bedroom with a handful of other houseguests, all I can say is: Parents, you may want to keep everyone under 18 away from the internet for the next 7 days.

Other than the CBS censors, the people who should be most afraid of Roddy’s HOH status are sleep-apniatic schoolteacher Gerry and germphobic fashion stylist Marcellas, both of whom have majorly ticked off Roddy’s friend and alliance-mate, Josh. If I had to make a prediction, I’d say: look for Gerry to be packing up his anti-snoring mask and hitting the road next Thursday.
