Big Brother Canada Surprise Eviction Sends Talla Rejaei to the Jury House

Final Three Houseguests Gary Levy, Emmett Blois and Jillian MacLaughlin Will Battle it out for the Grand Prize

Two-Hour Season Finale Airs Tonight at 9pm ET/10pm PT on Slice TM

TORONTO, May 2, 2013 /CNW/ - Only one episode away from the grand finale, Edmonton local Talla Rejaei was evicted from the Big Brother Canada house in a surprise eviction on Wednesday night's episode. After joining her fellow jurors at the jury house, Talla will return for the season finale where she will sit among the seven who will name the winner of Big Brother Canada. The Big Brother Canada two-hour season finale airs tonight at 9pm ET/10pm PT on SliceTM.

"I'm shocked. I did not see that coming. I didn't want to believe it when Emmett had told me that he was going to save Gary. I obviously didn't agree with his decision," said Talla Rejaei. "I didn't have to win any competitions to get this far. I made it really close to the end without winning any."

After winning her fourth Head of Household (HOH) competition of the season and guaranteeing herself a spot in the final three, Jillian MacLaughlin nominated Talla and Gary Levy for eviction. Dominating the Power of Veto (POV) competition Safe from Eviction, Emmett Blois was granted the power to pull someone off the block. Choosing not to save either nominee, Talla and Gary were given the chance to plead their case. Holding all of the power as the only member of the house to cast a vote, Emmett chose to evict Talla.

After 10 exhilarating weeks, tonight, fans will finally find out will be named the first ever winner of Big Brother Canada. Will it be Gary, Emmett or Jillian? Tune in to the two-hour season finale tonight at 9pm ET/10pm PT on SliceTM to find out who will walk away with $100,000, a brand new Chevrolet Trax and a $25,000 gift card to The Brick.
