TORONTO, May 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Newfoundland screamed loud and proud tonight as 23-year-old Jon Pardy became the season two winner of Big Brother Canada. He won over the country and his fellow houseguests with his physicality and social savvy, earning Canada's coveted jury vote.
"It's so surreal for me. If you had told me I was going to be here from day one, I would have told you that you are nuts," said Pardy. "Being able to do this for my province and my boys is the best feeling ever. I never thought in a million years I'd be on a reality show!"
The final three, made up of Jon, Neda (Vancouver, BC), and Sabrina (Montréal, QC), competed in a gruelling and gripping three-part HOH competition that decided the final two. Jon won the first leg and Neda took the second, robbing Sabrina of the final HOH. The power-couple competed together the entire game before going head-to-head in a trivial pursuit. Jon had jaws dropping when he made the power move of the season, taking Sabrina to the final two and putting Neda in the final jury seat.
Jon goes home to Clarenville, NL with $100,000, a $25,000 gift card to The Brick, and a $10,000 trip of a lifetime courtesy of Twistos and, as runner-up, Sabrina walks away with $20,000. The season of secrets put the houseguests through a myriad of #TwistosTwists engaging viewers more than ever before.
