TORONTO, May 2, 2014 /CNW/ - Wake up, Canada! Adel Elseri is joining the jury after being evicted in 2-0 vote. Adel joins Arlie, Allison, Rachelle, and Canada on the jury with just two spots left to fill.

"You know what, I was the underdog for a long time. [Heather, Jon, Neda and I] built a solid alliance but when it comes down to the very end, you gotta do what you gotta do. It was a good move by my team and I love them and respect them until the end," said Adel.

In one of the closest competitions yet, Jon scored his second HOH win of the season securing his safety and earning the power to shift the house towards the final four. Keeping true to his mainstay Neda, Jon nominated Heather and Sabrina for eviction before battling it out in the POV challenge. Heather fought for her safety and won, using the POV on herself. After Jon hesitantly named Adel as his replacement nominee, Sabrina survived her 6th eviction nomination when Adel was sent packing.

As one of the underdogs this season, the 27-year-old from Edmonton, Alberta lasted longer than most of his fellow houseguests thought he could. Adel, a Muslim whose family moved to Edmonton from the Middle East, practiced patience and reflection by praying to Mecca five times a day in the house, striving to represent his culture, his people, his city, and most importantly, himself.

In another cliff-hanging HOH competition, Jon sat helplessly as Heather, Neda, and Sabrina began the battle for one of the most important wins of the season. The new HOH will be revealed Sunday at 9pm ET setting the stage for a gruelling series of high-stakes competitions leading up to the finale on Thursday, May 8 at 9pm ET on Slice.

The Big Brother Canada Side Show is airing a special finale edition of the show Thursday, May 8 at 8:30pm ET with a series of surprise guests and pre-show hype. With their fate in the hands of six houseguests and one country, the finalists will make their pleas to the jury before the votes are cast for who should win the grand prize. The winner of Big Brother Canada season two takes home $100,000, a $25,000 gift card to The Brick, and a $10,000 trip of a lifetime courtesy of Twistos.
