CORAKI checkout teller Bradley, model Ryan and Melbourne account manager Benjamin are all up for eviction this week.

The three male contestants were nominated by their fellow Big Brother housemates in tonight's live nomination show.

Benjamin, the oldest Housemate at age 32, received 17 votes, while Bradley and Ryan received 16 votes each.

Viewers must vote to save their favourite of the three guys before Sunday's second live eviction show.

This past Sunday, Charne White was the first of the 14 housemates to be sent home.

Charne White was happy to be the first housemate evicted from the revived reality series.

The cabaret singer and Gold Coast pin-up model reckons she would not have coped well being cooped up in the Big Brother house for much longer.

"It's so slow. I was struggling," she said.

"The first week felt like a month, time just elongated. Now it seems so quick, but at the time it seemed so drawn out."

White was labeled as a bit of an "oddball" by her fellow housemates and the seven male contestants easily guessed her secret - that she has OCD, or obsessive compulsive disorder.

She found cleaning as an outlet to the stress of adjusting to the Big Brother bubble.

"My OCD was quite hard to control," she said.

"Some people might see that as anti-social behavior or 'oddball'. I prefer (the term) unique, but I'm totally fine with that."

This morning, White was still in the Big Brother "machine" doing interviews and meeting fans at Dreamworld.

She said she intended on taking a bit of time off before returning to her job performing at Dracula's cabaret restaurant.

"I'm going to take the rest of this week off and just reconnect with a lot of people," she said.

"Just be around people that are in my genre, the theatre people, who understand me. Some people just don't get me and I really felt that in the house."

Since she works most nights, White said she would go online to stay up to date with the show.

"I don't have a TV as well so it might be a little hard," she laughed.

"I'll keep checking in and seeing how everyone's going, and of course with the evictions I'll be waiting with bated breath to see who comes out."
