This week’s nominations for Big Brother Canada are in and considering the incredible drama that’s been going on over the past few days these results are going to surprise some folks who only watch the broadcast shows. Of course I’m talking about the HoH competition where some rule-bending was identified, addressed, and corrected in the house yesterday. That made a huge impact on these nominations.
The two nominees had a chance to compete in this week’s Power of Veto ceremony for a chance to be removed from the block and swapped out for a renom of another HG. If nothing changes then one of these two nominations will be evicted at the next Thursday’s episode.
Read on to find out who is on the chopping block this week.
Craziness. After all the chaos of “Pollengate” (tell me if that -gate thing doesn’t convey to Canadian audiences) Slice came out and did the right thing. They said they were listening to their audience and they were going to investigate the situation. Kudos. Major kudos to Slice because after years of sketchy things going on in the BBUS game I can’t recall a competition redo or imagine them admitting something like this.
So now, after the Feeds were down all day and tonight’s After Dark was cancelled we actually have an update. Yes, the Feeds are back, and yes, the situation was addressed. If you want to know what happened then continue on, but if you’d rather avoid these Big Brother Canada spoilers then turn back now and wait for Sunday’s episode.
Update 2: BBCA has addressed the situation. Get the update and latest news here.
Last night on Big Brother Canada Emmett was crowned the new HoH after winning the “Bee’s Knees” competition, but claims from viewers that Emmett may have cheated during the game.
The issue at hand goes to instructions given to the HGs that they were not allowed to carry any of the game balls in their hands but rather had to tuck them inside holsters for transport back to their respective stations. Twitter viewers lead an outcry that Emmett did not adhere to those rules and the above picture featuring Emmett holding a ball as he runs back certainly supports their concernts.
During the broadcast we did hear Arisa have to remind several HGs (Talla & Jillian) that hands were off-limits, but those reminders appeared to have been ignored.
The Edmonton Journal reports on the situation:
Last night on Big Brother Canada the latest eviction was held along with a whirlwind “Power Shift” twist and a new Head of Household. Things definitely didn’t end up like we were expecting, but that’s all part of the fun, right?
In case you missed it, episode 8 is available here for your geography-restrictions free viewing pleasure.
There is a LOT going on tonight on Big Brother Canada as we’re about to find out what’s going on with this “Power Shift” twist, which HGs become the final noms, who gets evicted, and which HG becomes the next Head of Household.
I’ll be live blogging all the results as they happen during tonight’s show. Before we get to any of the fun stuff we’re treated to the flashbacks of Suzette’s meltdown, Tom & Gary’s deal, and Tom’s eventual PoV win before using it and changing up his noms. Come on, Big Brother, let’s get to the good stuff already!
In the build up to tonight’s “live” content we’re seeing a lot of Tom targeting Andrew for elimination. Why? Well, um, because, um, because Tom wants him gone. The other guys aren’t thrilled, but they aren’t HoH this week and given this crazy twist Tom just might get his chance to make that happen. Great. We’re going to keep AJ and lose Andrew, arent’ we? Well done, Big Brother Canada production.
Finally the host is revealing to the HGs the details of “Power Shift” and immediately goes to the results of who will be saved by Canada.
