TORONTO, May 5, 2017 /CNW/ - Big Brother Canada's lethal triple eviction struck down three players in one fell swoop, taking out Jackie McCurrach of Port Coquitlam, B.C., followed by the French Connection: Montreal, Quebec's's Dre Gwenaelle and William Laprise Desbiens from Trois-Riviere, Quebec. An already hectic week in the house lead into the wildest eviction night of the season. The houseguests had barely said their goodbyes to Jackie before news of the triple eviction sent the BBCAN Odyssey into the stratosphere.
"We are in shock right now," said William with Dre seated next to him.
"We are! I honestly feel like I'm going to be able to go back into the house," Dre said. "I don't know how this happened to us."
After holding the dubious title of most times on the chopping block during the season, Jackie was finally sent to the Big Brother Canada jury house after being evicted by a vote of 5 to 1. Initially nominated as a replacement after Demetres won the Power of Veto, Jackie couldn't match Ika's powers of persuasion.
Following Jackie's eviction, the BBCAN Odyssey was rocked by the news that the evening's events were far from over with the dreaded triple eviction set for that night. During the HOH competition, one of the house's biggest targets, Demetres, eagerly took the title and nominated Kevin, Dre, and William for eviction, while simultaneously keeping the house's second biggest target, his Queen, Ika, safe for another week. The POV competition, "Off the Block," may have looked like fun and games to the houseguests, but their lives in the house depended on it. Having been evicted in Big Brother Canada's first ever triple eviction in Season 3, BBCAN vet Kevin was determined not to let history repeat itself and savagely beat out to the competition to win the POV and remove himself from the block. Having to name a replacement, HOH Demetres put Dillon up in Kevin's place, next to Dre and William. The house unanimously voted to keep Dillon safe, leaving Dre and William to join Jackie on the road to the Big Brother Canada jury house.
While the BBCAN Odyssey is now three passengers lighter the remaining crew must continue their journey into the unknown, beginning with the next Head of Household competition. Tune in to see who is safe and who is in danger on Monday's episode of Big Brother Canada at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
