Big Brother's Joe Dishes on His Ex and a "Brilliant Twist"

Joe Barber II, Big Brother

Last Thursday, bubbly 23-year-old Joe Barber II was the second houseguest sent packing, by a nearly unanimous (9 to 1) vote. The former receptionist, who's now looking for a job, pulls no punches about "stirring the pot" and seeking closure with his ex, Dustin.

TVGuide.com: You seemed to know that you'd be evicted.
Carol Journey: I made it very clear that I wanted to go home, that it wasn't necessarily my cup of tea. I'm excited to go home. I'm... pretty thrilled, actually.
