The first week of Celebrity Big Brother Season 2 has ended with not one, but two houseguests saying goodbye. And only one was prepared for it.

Ryan and Jonathan's alliance — which included Kandi Burruss, Tamar Braxton, Lolo Jones and Natalie Eva Marie — had all agreed that Anthony Scaramucci and Dina Lohan for the block.

Since they weren't informed of this swap beforehand, the women in Jonathan's alliance began to distrust him.

And yet, Jonathan had another chance to save himself: The Mooch left the house in the first major twist of the season. He was actually a mole and not a real houseguest. His removal from the block led to Ryan putting up Kandi along with another Veto comp, which Kato Kaelin won and awarded to Tom Green. Ryan then put up Joey Lawrence as a pawn. His hope was that Kandi would be evicted, but in the end she only received one vote (from Dina) and Jonathan became the first officially evicted houseguest of Celebrity Big Brother Season 2.

TV Guide spoke with Jonathan, who is still reeling from the twists and turns of this week, to learn what he thought of the Scaramucci twist and if he regrets saving Dina.
