TORONTO, April 25, 2014 /CNW/ - "The Gremlins" alliance went from two to one in tonight's episode of Big Brother Canada as Rachelle Diamond was evicted in a 3-0 vote and sent to the jury house to join Arlie and Allison.

"I saw it coming. They told me that I was going home because I was the bigger threat," said Rachelle Diamond. "Sabrina is my best friend in the house and it was very hard to campaign against her. I didn't expect to go in to this house and make a best friend."

After Adel won HOH and nominated Rachelle and Sabrina (#TheGremlins) for eviction, the houseguests saddled up for a STAMPede POV challenge where Neda won. This POV earned Neda a secret strategy session in the War Room with season one winner Jillian MacLaughlin and her beau, fan-favourite Emmett Blois. Neda chose not to use the POV and the house unanimously voted out the 20-year-old from Edmonton, Alberta.

With five houseguests left, each competition matters more than ever as this episode's cliff-hanger HOH competition paves the way for the strongest alliance to claim their spot in the finale airing Thursday, May 8 at 9pm ET on Slice.

On next week's Big Brother Canada Side Show, #BBUS winner, alumni, and mastermind, Rachel Reilly, joins the panel to dish on this season's twists. Rachel will share her predictions on who can claim this year's grand prize of $100,000, a $25,000 gift card to The Brick, and a $10,000 trip of a lifetime courtesy of Twistos.
