Intruder Tom booted out of Big Brother house

BIG Brother viewers gave intruder Tom Mackay the flick tonight.

It was the first chance fans had to evict one of the four intruders who were introduced as the "noisy neighbours" 17 days ago.

The Sydney marketing manager said he enjoyed his relatively brief stint on the reality show.

"I was in the house for a good time and I wanted to hang out with people I liked, and that's what I did," Mackay told host Sonia Kruger.

The 26-year-old said he would be happy to catch up with favourite housemate Ryan Ginns after the show, while he said he didn't get along Skye Wheatley, another viewer favourite, because of her immaturity.

"We're just different people," he said.

"She's heaps smarter than what she puts out.

"She loves the camera though; that's her strategy to play up to the camera."

Before the live eviction Kruger paid the housemates a visit.

As part of the current remote control task, Big Brother froze the housemates with a "pause" command as Kruger taunted them with jokes and even rubbed her feet in Penny's face.

Leo, Ryan, Skye, Penny and Richard face another eviction tomorrow night.
