Even After Six Seasons, the Double Eviction Still Leaves Houseguests Steaming from its Blistering Burn

Find Out Who Rises from the Ashes to Take the Next Head of Household Competition on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global

Toronto, Canada – The Big Brother Canada household was hit with twice the pandemonium this week as a double eviction blazed through the gates of hell. Eviction night began with the houseguests deciding to send home gate crasher and angel-turned-devil Veronica Doherty (Ottawa, ON) in a vote of nine to one. After Veronica’s departure, things got heated in the house when Arisa dropped the double eviction bombshell that, in an instant, made everyone a target. Thunder Bay, ON’s Hamza Hatoum’s dramatic backdoor eviction was the fallout of Arisa’s shocking news and marked the shattering end to a turbulent week of lies, deceit, and all-out war.

After chalking up her first Head of Household win, comp beast Erica settled on two safe nominations in always sunshiny Merron, her pawn, and BBCAN mega-fan Maddie, her target. With a looming double eviction and a heartbroken Maddie weighing on the household, Erica knew she had to make a big game move when she reeled in the POV victory. Still spinning from last week’s rogue eviction vote cast in secret by Veronica, the house wasted no time urging Erica to save the mourning Maddie and instead, clip the double-dealing wings on Veronica’s back.

“Everyone in that house is playing summer camp right now and I just wanted to break that up,” said Veronica to Big Brother Canada host, Arisa Cox. “Whatever. They can have fun playing kumbaya in there while I go home to be with my family.”

After Veronica’s eviction, the houseguests started to settle in to their post-eviction damage control when Arisa shocked them with news from the dark side. In seconds, another eviction was in play and the houseguests launched into a wickedly intense HOH competition that tested their wits and speed. Olivia took the title and nominated perpetual block warmer, Merron, and BBCAN “troll” Ryan for eviction. The “Big Brother Pinball” POV competition was then in full tilt with Ryan and Merron gaming hard for the win, but it was Ryan who scored massive redemption with his winning strike and proudly took himself off the block. Not letting a backdoor opportunity pass her by, Olivia named Hamza the replacement nominee and in a vote of eight to one, fan-favourite Hamza was sent packing in a blaze of glory.

“This has been an experience of a lifetime,” Hamza shared with Arisa after walking out of the house to a standing ovation from the studio audience. “Thank you to the fans for your humbling support. It means so much.”

Thursday night’s episode ended with the household in mourning, and with emotions now raw and sharp, every houseguest is now poised to unleash their inner devil. To see who takes the HOH victory next, tune in to Big Brother Canada on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
