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.
Leaving Sunday’s nominations the events in the house were pretty monotonous. Alec was ofcourse upset that he was on the block against his fellow alliance member of The Shield Peter, and Topaz was calling Jillian’s word in the game complete bullsh*t. When it came time to pick players for the Veto competition the house knew this would be the competition that sealed Alec’s fate. The best possible scenario would be all of the East Coasters Alliance being chosen to play, making it basically the entire house against Peter and Alec. Here are the players:
Last night on Big Brother Canada we picked up where we left off on Sunday. This weeks Head of Household competition was an endurance challenge. The last houseguest standing on Big Brother’s iceberg was the winner. Houseguests were hit with a barrage of wind and ice cold water in addition to standing in an incredibly awkward situation. Surprisingly, Alec was the first to jump off after 1hr and 20mins had elapsed. Shortly after was Peter and Emmett not far behind with a DQ’d for talking his hand off the bar. The guys tend to have a harder time with these types of challenges as they are holding onto more weight than the girls. I for sure thought Talla had this competition wrapped up but she couldn’t take it anymore after 2hr and 12mins of enduring the cold. Around the 3hr mark Alec and the rest of the guys were sitting humbled by the fact that the girls completely dominated this challenge. They could see that both Topaz and Jillian had no intention of jumping down, knowing this was the most important HOH of the season so far. After the rest of the players went into the house Jillian and Topaz made a deal to keep each other showmances safe. Topaz wouldn’t put up Emmett or Jillian, and Jillian wouldn’t put up Topaz or Alec. Moments after the deal was made, Topaz jumped off, crowning Jillian the new Head of Household.
Big Brother Canada lost one its strongest, funniest most entertaining houseguests last night. The events leading up to his eviction gave us at home false hope but then again that is Big Brother. That’s right guys, our very own Gary was voted out of the Big Brother house. It was tough to see him go, he grew on me. He was a strong player and showed amazing sportsmanship when leaving. He will have great a great influence on who wins it all in the jury.
As for the rest of the show it was cute. We got to see some of the houseguests family and how they feel of their son/daughter/brother/sister’s behaviour throughout the game so far. Jillian’s family loves Emmett and vice versa. We got to see where the Shield alliance sprouted from and Peter’s mother reveals she can count the things he likes to eat on one hand. It makes sense but to be honest I couldn’t care less. He’s a floater, and while to some that may be an acceptable game play to me I don’t think he’s doing much to earn him spot. He’s definitely taking a page out of Dan’s book, runner up for Big Brother 14. However Dan used a mental game that saved him from the chopping block countless times. Peter is a boring, weak competitor whose voice is worst than nails on a chalk bored. Harsh but I want him gone next week.
Tonight’s episode of Big Brother Canada was an emotional rollercoaster, it started off where we left off on Sunday with Gary crying. Gary and his best friend Topaz were put up on the block by Andrew and the thought of either of them leaving had both Topaz and Gary very upset. Topaz’s HOH was not right, Big Brother Canada is trying too hard to stir the pot. She was HOH for 10 mins, all of which was in the complete view of the entire house, resulting in her being named public enemy #1. Before the Power of Veto competition nothing interesting happened so let’s get to it. Here are the players for the veto competition.
Tonight’s episode of Big Brother Canada was an hour, jam packed with juicy drama, we began with Arisa informing us at home that tonight was a Power Shift Instant Eviction. Immediately after Suzette’s eviction Topaz was called up to the HOH room. Topaz was locked away from the other houseguests and Arisa informed her she had 5 minutes to name 2 houseguests for eviction. She had to make the decision without the input of any other houseguest including her showmance partner Alec. While Topaz was making her decision up in the HOH room the houseguests were called into the living room to watch as Topaz weighed out her options, out loud. The entire house heard who she was planning to nominate and who she planned to keep around for her personal own game. Talla and Andrew’s name came up in a not so positive way. Ultimately she nominated AJ and Andrew for nomination and houseguests wasted no time in casting their votes. Here are the votes:
From the beginning of the episode it was clear that Suzette’s time in the Big Brother house was fading. She had accepted the fact that she was leaving, and started to see it as a blessing in disguise because she would be able to see her kids who, for the past couple weeks, she couldn’t stop talking about. After the Veto Ceremony Emmett tried to go further into detail explaining what he meant at during his speech. He wanted her to leave on a good not and for the other houseguests to actually want to talk to her.
In appears there is trouble in paradise with Alec and Topaz’s showmance on the rocks for a part of this episode. It’s no secret Topaz likes to nap. Big Brother even went as far as set an alarm for her when she needs to go to the diary room or complete a task. However the alarm rings throughout the entire house and it’s beginning to annoy her fellow houseguests. Whilst in the HOH room Topaz was sleeping listening to music the Big Brother alarm sounded. It played for so long Big Brother actually confiscated Alec’s iPod so she couldn’t use it to ignore Big Brother. This upset Alec to a point where he approach the remaining members of the Quatro Alliance and stated Topaz needs to go within the coming weeks. He expected an apology and a warm hug but instead Topaz didn’t see where he was coming from and brushed it off.
Tonight’s episode, like most of the episodes started off on a dull note. It’s seems that with each passing episode my attention grows weaker. Nevertheless the houseguests seem to be having a good time and I am impressed in the way the majority of them have been competing. The whole throwing competition strategy is out the window and the real competitors are beginning to shine. Skipping right into the POV competition here are the players:
