All right guys tonight was the finale for Canada’s first ever Big Brother! With a highly controversial end let’s look back on how we got to this night.
For the first part of tonight three part HOH it was an endurance challange. Jillian going in figured she had the advantage as the girls are typically better at endurance challenges than the boys. However tonight’s endurance challenge was built for the boys and she was not expecting that. The first challenge was named “No Blood on My Hands”. Players had to balance themselves while holding a poll that held up a bucket of blood. The last player standing secured his/her spot in the last part of the HOH . The difficult part about this challenge was the weight of the blood, which caught all the houseguests off guard. After 1hr 33mins Jillian could not hold onto her bucket an longer and she was eliminated. I was glad she dropped first. She went into the competition way too confident telling Emmett she’ll win the first part and he’ll win the second making sure Gary had no power. At the 4hr mark, Gary dropped his bucket crowning Emmett the winner of the first HOH. Emmett automatically moved on to the final stage and got to sit back while Jillian and Gary duked it out for a spot next to him.
Not surprisingly nothing interesting happened in tonight’s episode. However I’ll try to give you guys the main points and my thoughts going into the finale. Prior to the eviction we saw Talla and Andrew reaching a breaking point. Both being on the block tensions were running high and with alcohol involved sh*t got cray. Nothing too major happened, after all we have been blessed with a polite bunch of houseguests (yawn), but it did raise questions in peoples heads. During the argument Emmett put his hand over Talla implying he was supporting her in the argument. This struck a cord with Jillian as she wanted to stand up for Andrew and wondered where Emmett was coming from. Emmett eventually explained to her that it’s best if the other players think there are holes in their showmance, to secure themselves votes for the jury. Makes no sense to me but whatever floats your boat. We also saw bits from Talla and Gary’s family and their views of how they’ve played the game.
Tonight Big Brother Season 10 Winner and 14 runner up Dan Gheelsing joined the houseguests with one goal in mind, to stir things up! Dan is known for being the first houseguest in Big Brother history to host his own funeral and when all odds were against him, regain control of the house and make it to the end. He is by far one of my favorite players in Big Brother. The houseguests were informed that a mystery player would be joining them via BBMail. This is when Talla’s screaming began. I would have evicted her weeks ago, solely based on her screaming. When Dan finally walked through the door he was greeted by a screaming Talla that then leaped onto him. He literally almost carried her down the stairs while she was still one him. After having a sit down with the houseguests he revealed that his presence was not to be welcomed as he was given the power to evict one houseguest right away. Immediately my heart sank because I’d recently been skimming the live feeds and a couple of them I didn’t see Gary. Luckily it was one of the several jokes Dan would be “misting” the houseguests with during his stay.
After Thursday’s eventful Big Brother Canada episode we picked up at the beginning of the Head of Household competition. Emmett, Andrew, Talla and Gary were battling it out to complete their puzzle first. I thought for sure that Gary would have the advantage but according to him puzzle aren’t his forte. Ultimately Emmett managed to make sense of the puzzle and he completed his making him the new HOH. In other words, Jillian and Emmett have the HOH room to themselves again..
Wow! Tonight’s episode was the best so far, only because I got to see my favorite Big Brother player of all time Janelle Pierzina!! I’ll get to that momentarily but prior to the eviciton ceremony we saw a shaky relationship between Andrew and Talla, Peter tried to explain as many possibly outcomes to the houseguests so that they might save him. Unfortunaltely for him that did not work, by a vote of 2-0 Peter was the next evicted houseguest.
Hmm where to begin, well I’ll dive straight into the Power of Veto competition seeing as how nothing note worthy occurred prior to it. For tonight’s POV competition it was sleep themed Veto and it was sponsored by the Brick and Serta Mattresses. The competition had 3 rounds. The first was a teeth brushing competition where houseguests had to brush Big Brothers teeth clean. The first 3 to complete this part moved onto the puzzle round, from there the first 2 to complete their puzzle went on a hunt to located the Serta Sheep with a red star on its collar. The first houseguest to locate the sheep, climb the mattress staircase to a bed a lay in it was the winning of tonight’s Veto Competition. In addition to Veto the winner was awarded a $10 000 shopping spree to the Brick.
Tonight on Big Brother Canada we picked up after Thursday’s double live eviction. We watched Alec and Topaz walk out the door and a nail biting Head of Household competition kick-started for this weeks HOH.
From the beginning everyone had a different approach for the challenge. Jillian wanted to start from the top and make her way to the bottom and the rest pretty much chose the same method of doing the exact opposite. Ultimately Jillian’s method paid off and she became the new HOH for the 3rd time this season.
As annoying as these weekly twists and power shifts are, they do a great job of keeping the show interesting. Tonight was this seasons 2nd double eviction of the season and sh*t got cray! At the beginning of the episode we got a short recap of the events leading up to last nights first eviction. Alec tried to campaign against Topaz explaining that she was a bigger threat than he was. Yah right! As if anyone would believe that story. Alec is easy on the eyes and has a good heart but that’s the issue, he has a heart. He truly sealed his fate when he went against Topaz during her HOH and voted to keep Andrew. Yes it kept him safe for one week however it got him evicted this week. Here are the votes:
I don’t feel bad because at the end of the day he didn’t walk away empty handed. Alec left the house $10 000 richer and he has a sweet ride to drive back in to Vancouver in. However he won’t be heading back to Vancouver just yet as he will be joining Gary and AJ in the jury house.
