TORONTO, March 31, 2017 /CNW/ - Following the departure of her Season 4 ally Dallas, second chance houseguest Cassandra Shahinfar was unable to scheme her way out of the line of fire this week in the Big Brother Canada house. Head of Household Neda Kalantar used her time in the Captain's Quarters to plant seeds of doubt against her ultimate target: notoriously clever and conniving Cassandra. When it was time to reveal her choices, Neda unsurprisingly nominated Cassandra, along with new houseguest Jackie McCurrach as a pawn. After William Laprise Desbiens won the Power of Veto and chose to not use it, despite pressure from Cassandra, her fate was sealed. While she worked every angle to the very end, Cassandra was evicted in a unanimous vote of 11-0.
"There is a clear line that's been drawn in the house and everyone just wants to follow whoever is in power," said Cassandra. "No one in the house was willing to take a risk for me. I just didn't have the loyalty this season that I had last season."
Meanwhile cracks began to show in the powerful "The Six" alliance, made up of veterans Neda, Ika, Sindy, Bruno and Kevin and "newbie" Demetres. When Ika threw some passive aggressive shade over Neda's nomination choices, Neda sought comfort from Bruno and Kevin. Meanwhile, Cassandra strategically isolated herself from the rest of the house in hopes of luring any undecided houseguests her way to secure new alliances. But after weeks of making and breaking alliances with the whole house, Cass was unable to secure any votes in her favour and became the third evicted houseguest of the season.
After the eviction was complete, Arisa announced a new and stunning "Shockwave." In a series first, the BBCAN Odyssey found a wrinkle in time, resulting in the upcoming week being played entirely in reverse. The house was rocked by the news that each of them would have to immediately nominate two fellow houseguests for eviction. To find out who the houseguests will choose as their nominees, tune into Big Brother Canada on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
