Canada Holds the Key to Super Have-Not Power with Online Vote at www.BigBrotherCanada.ca
TORONTO, May 7, 2015 /CNW/ - In the most game-changing episode yet this season, Big Brother Canada blew up alliances with the show's first-ever triple eviction. Tonight saw power players and pawns exit as Oakville's Bobby Hlad, Grand Prairie's Kevin Martin, and Lower Sackville's Willow MacDonald all headed out the door in quick succession. The houseguests are only in for more shocking surprises with a new #TwistosTwist giving Canada a heavy handed Have-Not power.
"Triple eviction and Brittnee wins? That's something I can't control in this game," poker player Kevin told Arisa after going from HOH to evictee in one night. "I did everything I think I could…I'm just kind of speechless."
After coming out on top in the Sindy-centric HOH competition, "Ratetribution," Kevin scored a back-to-back HOH win for the "Diaper Alliance." Leading his alliance to believe he was on board to backdoor their target Godfrey, Kevin made his own plans and kept his cards close to his chest putting Bobby and perpetual pawn Brittnee on the block. Kevin went on to win the "Brick Tent Sale" POV competition and much to his alliance's surprise, kept the nominations as-is, laying his cards on the table and exposing Oakville's own Bobby Hlad as his true target.
A unanimous vote sent rock-climbing instructor Bobby out of the house first, and then Big Brother Canada's first-ever triple eviction put the house in a tailspin as the houseguests fought for one of the most important HOH competitions yet. Brittnee reigned supreme going from pawn to queen (again) in "Talk of the Block." After fast and furious deliberations, Queen B painted a target on the Diaper Alliance, nominating Zach, Kevin, and Pilar. Bruno lit up the POV competition and in one of the night's most shocking moves, pulled Zach off of the block.
Floored by this backstabbing wrench in her plan, Brittnee was forced to quickly name a replacement nominee, choosing Willow to take Zach's place. Only one of the three houseguests could be saved, and with a split house, Pilar earned another week of safety while Willow and Kevin join the jury.
Canada holds massive power this week with a #TwistosTwist to unlock the secret power hidden in the Have-Not room. Viewers vote online for two houseguests to be Have-Nots – but the twist is that this is a prize not a punishment. The Have-Nots will compete against each other for the power to change one of the nominations right before next Wednesday's live eviction, with the option to change both of the nominations if they wish.
The drama continues Sunday as the fallout of tonight's shocking triple eviction continues to play out and the newest HOH is named.
