Exiting the House to a Flurry of Fans - Peter Brown is Evicted from the Big Brother Canada House

Canada Puts Gary Levy Back in the House in Third Big Brother Canada Chevrolet Power Shift Vote

Mastermind Dan Gheesling Ready to Enter the House to Surprise the Houseguests with an Unexpected Sleep Over

Next Episode of Big Brother Canada Airs Sunday at 9pm ET/PT on Slice TM

TORONTO, April 19, 2013 /CNW/ - Sending one houseguest to the jury house and seeing another make their unexpected return, Thursday night's episode shocked the house like never before. Exiting the house to a flurry of excited and chanting fans, Vancouver local Peter Brown was evicted from the house while Gary Levy was voted back in, in the third Big Brother Canada Chevrolet Power Shift Vote.

"I knew I had to go out in a memorable way. I'm different than other people - so I did something different. No hard feelings towards Jillian. It's not her fault she's dumb. "The Sheyld" will live on forever," said Peter Brown.

Following her win as Head of Household (HOH), Jillian Maclaughlin nominated Andrew Monaghan and Peter Brown for eviction. Winning the Power of Veto (POV) competition on Wednesday night's episode, Andrew was luckily able to pull himself off of the block, leaving Jillian to nominate a replacement. Talla Rejaei was chosen as the replacement nominee and in a vote of two to zero, Peter was evicted from the house.

In a new Big Brother Canada Chevrolet Power Shift Vote, Canada was given the chance to vote on who to bring back from the jury house. With over 500,000 votes coming in from across the country, Canadians made their voices heard. Reigning in the majority of votes, Gary was granted a second chance and returned inside the Big Brother Canada house.

Thursday night's episode wrapped with the Head of Household (HOH) challenge Brick by Brick. Tune in on Sunday night at 9pm ET/PT on SliceTM to find out will be named the next HOH.

Don't miss next Wednesday's episode when legendary Big Brother icon Dan Gheesling will move in to the Big Brother Canada house for a sleep over with the houseguests.
