Big Brother Wiki

Eric Ouellette was a houseguest on Big Brother 3 (US).

Eric began the game in a strong position, being in a showmance with Lisa Donahue, and becoming a member of the Cartel alliance. However, after his alliance lost power, Eric was targeted for being a leader and a competition threat in the house. Gerry Lancaster nominated him next to Lisa. Despite a strong campaign from his alliance to keep him in the game, Eric and his allies were blindsided when Jason Guy voted with Danielle Reyes against him. Eric was evicted by a vote of 4-3, after Gerry cast the tiebreaker vote to evict him, placing 10th, and becoming the 3rd member of the jury.

Eric had the opportunity to re-enter the game, however, Amy Crews was voted back in by the house instead.
