If you managed to avoid the season finale spoilers revealed hours before broadcast, it was an exciting finale that kept us surprised on what was going to happen next. Godfrey pulled out two clutch wins to decide the final eviction where he sent Ashleigh out to the Jury and brought Sarah along with him.

Ultimately the Jury preferred Sarah’s strategy to Godfrey’s and overwhelmingly voted her the winner with support for Godfrey only coming from Bruno and Bobby.

Speaking with Shaw Media, Sarah credited her success in part to the season’s big twist and winning a critical follow-on comp.

“I honestly felt like I was going to be out every single week. It turned around when Brittnee used the Have Not super power and I won HOH right after – that’s when I thought that I might have a shot to get to the end. I still can’t believe it though, it’s so surreal!” said Sarah Hanlon.

That was undeniably a turning point in the season as we saw the string of evictions for Kevin, Willow, Bruno, and Zach in quick succession leaving Sarah to fend off comp-throwing Godfrey and frequently comp-challenged Pilar. The landscape of threats rapidly changed and left an opening for Sarah to be taken to the F2 where she secured the Jury votes and $100K prize.

Congrats to Sarah on her big win and kudos to Godfrey on his runner-up achievement and humble attitude toward the Jury’s decision. Now on to Big Brother 17 starting this June on CBS.


  1. Damn right she better thank that twist. She most likely would not have made it to the end. I also didn’t like the fact that they didn’t ask Godfrey more questions or even gave him a chance to explain his game. But they could show 20 minutes of filler bull crap that I don’t care about. He probably could have got a few more votes. All around not a good season, production needs to get it together.

    • I am a huge big brother fan, but this season of BB 3 Canada goes down as having the worst cast ever!.
      I did not enjoy this season at all, didn’t even care to watch the finale.
      The twists are good but not to the point where it the game becomes a game of luck. Kevin and Bruno went out while Brittanee and Sarah stayed in. The show needs twists and excitement but it needs to be done inside the house with not too much help from the outside.
      I felt the cast there year was boring, the diary rooms are a highlight for me and most of personalities fell flat. It was more of a college dorm scene, there needs to me more of an eclectic mix.
      I think that just like this year having an evicted juror; the last of to the three to win the two out three comps should get an extra vote. Also there needs to be a twist that forces the hand of ‘showmances’ like Canada offering a bonus to have an unlikely pairing or group to work together like they with Derrick /Frankie / Donny

        • It’s more entertaining when the houseguests don’t get along so well. This show needs the fireworks of personalities clashing.

    • As some have mentioned in the previous, God’s subtle approach may have gone unnoticed by much of the jury which is probably why jurors felt more compelled to give much of their questions to Sarah.

      • Sarah’s game was much more “in your face” than Godfrey who went for the quieter approach.

        I am surprised though that production doesn’t force a balanced # of questions for each especially considering they had an even count of Jurors.

      • I honestly didn’t feel like Godfrey had much of a game. Sarah has to thank the twist, Godfrey has to thank Britt. He was just floating through and the only reason he made it to the end was because other people took him.
        I would credit him with a good game play if I thought he manipulated them into taking him, but that’s not the case.
        That’s why people asked Sarah more questions, because she just played the game more.

    • I was confused as to why they didn’t have a balance of questions. BBUS always does and that threw me off a lot and made me realize Godfrey didn’t have a chance as he couldn’t explain himself.

    • I agree…not enough questions to Godfrey…didn’t have a chance to explain his strategy…which was not easy to pull off as he did.

      • He got less questions because Bruno was supposed to direct his question at Godfrey, but he wanted to try to stick it to Sarah instead.

  2. Fun little piece of trivia, as far as BB in North America is concerned, Sarah is the first woman to beat a man in the final two. Had Godfrey (Or Brit) won, they would have been the first black champion.

  3. My boy friend whom we have dated for 7 yrs and we were living together and we had started making wedding plans already when he suddenly woke up and said to me last November that he didn’t love me any more and he wasn’t happy with the relationship saying that he didn’t want us to live a miserable life together and that he already rented a new place and wants to move in with a girl he met at work. I begged and pleaded with him but all my efforts failed. I became desperate and searched for a solution that was how i came across the great spell caster, Dr.Amigo, who is the priest of the home of ancient spells.
    Within 48 hrs that he cast reunion revival spell, my boyfriend came back to me.
    The reunion revival spell worked faster than i ever expected because I did not trust him at first. Using this post to encourage women who have experience divorce not to give up on their love and always fight to get their loved ones back and also to give out this great spell casters contact email: You can contact him today i assure everyone 100% solution of his spell work.
