TORONTO, March 21, 2014 /CNW/ - After three weeks of united voting, the Big Brother Canada houseguests divided in a 6-4 vote against 43-year-old Paul Jackson in Thursday night's eviction episode on Slice.

"I'm too old for this," stated Paul Jackson. "I knew coming in I would have to change up my game depending on the people in the house. The nice guy just didn't work so I switched to the villain and that didn't work either, so I tried to switch back and I guess it was too late. Trying to keep up with these young cats was hard."

The HOH challenge proved too tough a nut for Paul to crack. Ika, who already held the HOH title, won the squirrel-inspired POV challenge making her eviction nominations untouchable. It was a house divided in a tight vote between the Toronto motivational speaker and fellow nominee Heather.

The season of secrets continued when Big Brother revealed that Canada has the power to bring Marsha the Moose back to Big Brother Canada. Fans will vote online to unlock the Fan Meter and launch a secret Marsha Mission. When the meter reaches two million votes, the mischievous moose will make her triumphant return to the show.

Big Brother Canada airs three nights a week on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays at 9pm ET/PT on Slice. The Big Brother Canada Side Show airs Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT. Big Brother Canada After Dark airs seven days a week from 2am - 5am ET/11pm - 2am PT.
