Also, we got this season's first peek into the jury house, where Matt reveals a secret that makes quite an impact on his fellow jury members. So, who was evicted? Let's find out...
Enzo and Ragan, Big Brother 12
On Wednesday's episode of Big Brother 12, the competition got super-serious, even if the houseguests also got a little silly. With their lives on the line, nominees Enzo and Ragan battled it out in this season's most physical veto competition. But because the house gets pretty dull as the numbers dwindle — especially when everyone gets along — Big Brother subjected the houseguests to their final two Pandora's Box punishments, which just made everything a little bit goofy. So what were the punishments? Who won the veto? And how were the nominations affected? Let's find out...
Big Brother 12
If the Brigade alliance continues to hold strong, then Ragan will be leaving the house tonight and the final four houseguests will be Britney, Enzo, Hayden and Lane. But the once-mighty Brigade is beginning to show some cracks.

They also believe that Lane is rich and doesn't need the $500,000 top-prize money. Tonight's vote isn't the most crucial thing. The Head of Household competition that follows is critical. If Britney wins, the Brigade could be history.
