Big Brother Canada dropped a major bombshell on the houseguests during the premiere episode. It was revealed that there would be no Head of Household competition, and instead, Canada voted all week to keep some of them safe. The four BBCAN8 houseguests with the least votes would be in immediate danger for eviction. The only way to stop their impending eviction would be to win one of two competitions, and then to try to use their social game to remain safe. Facing immediate danger would really help determine who were the villains and heroes of Big Brother Canada 8.
The first competition played out during the episode. The four houseguests in danger: Chris, Nico, Minh-Ly, and Susanne had to use their strength to stay safe. Each houseguest held on to a string holding a car. Chris and Nico were pretty confident in their ability to dominate this competition, but in the end, it came down to Susanne and Minh-Ly. And Minh-Ly took home the victory, guaranteeing her safety and sending Nico, Chris, and Susanne to fight it out in a mental competition.
Tonight, we’ll see who wins the second competition, who goes up on the block, and who becomes the first person evicted from the BBCAN8 game, even before feeds start!
Chris goes to work trying to win allies to save himself if he remains on the block. He works to build relationships, starting with Madeline. Nico is a little annoyed to already be facing adversity. Minh-Ly and Jamar start a flirtmance.
Nico starts to already feel the weight of the Big Brother Canada game.
