Orthodox Jew voted off ‘Big Brother’


NEW YORK (JTA) — The first Orthodox Jew to appear as a contestant on the reality show "Big Brother" has been sent packing.

Andrew Gordon, a Miami podiatrist, was voted off the CBS show in which contestants live in a house and each week oust other contestants based on their feelings toward each other. The winner receives a pot of cash.

The kipah-wearing Gordon, 39, observed the Sabbath and kept kosher.

"Big Brother" is in its 12th season.
