'Big Brother 12': Annie, Monet and Andrew no longer sequestered

bb-12-monet-stunson.jpgThe first three "Big Brother 12" contestants to be evicted -- Annie Whittington, Monet Stunson and Andrew Gordon -- were previously being kept in sequester, but now CBS tells Zap2it they are no longer being sequestered and have returned home.

The reason for the initial sequester and subsequent release is not known. We had speculated that it was because one of the evicted houseguests might be returning to the house, which is something "Big Brother" has done in the past. Unfortunately, if they are doing that, it won't be with Annie, Monet or Andrew. We were really hoping for Annie.

In other news, Rachel has made her nominations (but beware spoilers if you click on the link). The Power of Veto ceremony should be played sometime tomorrow, so we will keep you posted on the winner and whether or not the POV is used. And if you haven't heard (and because it's hilarious), we discovered today that "BB 12's" Matt was previously on another reality show -- "Average Joe: The Joes Strike Back."

"Big Brother" airs Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday nights at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
