TORONTO, May 18, 2017 /CNW/ - The queen was taken out Wednesday night during the dreaded Special Eviction on Big Brother Canada. In a 1 to 0 vote, Ika Wong from Thornhill, Ont. was evicted from the BBCAN Odyssey and sent to the jury house, leaving Kevin Martin, Karen Singbeil and Demetres Giannitsos to battle it out in a final three fight to the finish line. Thursday night, fans can tune-in to find out who will be crowned the winner of Big Brother Canada in the epic two-hour season finale at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Global.

"My headspace was just to follow my gut and take it week by week," said Ika. "I know what it's like to leave this house with regrets, and I told myself I will never leave with any."

After Demetres put Kevin and Karen on the block, the pressure was on for Kevin to win the season's most important Power of Veto in order to stay in the game and make it to the final three. In the POV "The Down Under" challenge, where the houseguests had to align clues and answers in parallel universes, Kevin eclipsed the competition and secured the all-important POV win. With Kevin  now holding the sole eviction vote, Ika pleaded her case, urging him to keep her and prove that he could beat the best in the game. In the end, Ika's pleas fell on deaf ears and Kevin was finally able to launch Ika into the jury house, cementing Demetres, Karen and Kevin's spot in the final three.

Meanwhile, back at the jury house, Dillon took his eviction as an opportunity to "spill the tea" on the finalists with his fellow jury members, giving them something to think about as they head into the finale to crown this season's Big Brother Canada winner.

This Thursday night's episode will determine the fate of Season 5's final three, and Canada will finally find out who takes it all on the Big Brother Canada two-hour season finale at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
