10 BECOMES 9 AS ONE HALF OF THE YOUNG BLOOD DUO IS SLASHED FROM THE BIG BROTHER CANADA HOUSE
Port Moody’s Kiera Wallace Evicted After Kyra Shenker Chooses Not to Use the Blood Veto
Watch an All-New Week of Big Brother Canada to See Who Wins HOH and Who Will Become the Season’s First Jury Member
Toronto, Canada – After a week of mystery and paranoia, all revealed itself in Thursday night’s live eviction episode leaving Kyra Shenker with ultimate control of the house. Gifted earlier in the week with the bloodiest power in the history of Big Brother Canada: the Blood Veto, Kyra had the ability to overturn the house’s vote – which had Kiera out the door in a vote of five to one. Choosing to stay true to their word, Kyra did not use the Blood Veto terminating Kiera Wallace’s covert spy mission in the Big Brother Canada house.
“I was thinking that if I were to fight for the Blood Veto, Mark wouldn’t give it up to me anyways, so I would spend a lot of time arguing back and forth creating a bigger target on my back than there already was.” said Kiera Wallace. “So, I figured the best option for me was to give it [the Blood Veto] up to Kyra and build up a relationship in that time and hopefully they would use it on me if they had the opportunity.”
This week’s Head of Household competition came down to a three-way tie-breaker between Samantha Picco, Dane Rupert, and Estefania Hoyos. In the end, Samantha came out victorious sending Mark Drelich and Kiera “Kiki” Wallace up on the block. After Arisa dropped a major bombshell on the house about a secret room, the houseguests discovered that a secret veto was awaiting its future. Without knowing what powers the Blood Veto held, the house was tasked with unanimously choosing a single houseguest to receive it. With alliances taking turns left and right, the agents decided that Kyra Shenker – who vowed not to use whatever power it held – would be the (un)lucky recipient. And like a pitbull with a bone, Kyra immediately went from underdog to overlord, ultimately choosing not to use the Blood Veto’s power which sent Kiera back home to British Columbia forcing her to narrowly miss the jury house – which begins next week.
