A PLAGUE ON THIS HOUSE!
TORONTO’S MAKI MOTO IS SECOND HOUSEGUEST EVICTED FROM THE BIG BROTHER CANADA HOUSE
Chelsea Bird Wins Head of Household Competition “Truth and Spies”
Watch Big Brother Canada Sunday at 8 P.M. ET/PT on Global to See Which Houseguests Chelsea Nominates for Eviction
Toronto, Canada – In a jaw-dropping house shocker, Toronto’s peaceful poet, Maki “Mac Daddy” Moto, is unceremoniously evicted from the Big Brother Canada house in a rare tie vote broken by Head of Household Dane Rupert. Nominated by Dane earlier in the week, Maki Moto was on the block with Montreal’s Kyra Shenker. Dane’s self-mandated mission to control the power in the house – and backdoor Samantha Picco – was abruptly terminated upon discovering the season’s newest twist: the Head of Household cannot play for the POV. With the new rules in play, comp beast Adam Pike – whose budding showmance with Samantha is starting to reveal itself – secured her safety by choosing not to use the POV, ultimately sending Maki Moto out the door, and rocking a visibly divided and emotional house.
“There’s a lot of fakeness that goes on in the house, so to have freedom from that is quite a beautiful thing,” said Maki Moto. “I feel betrayed by the whole house. It’s all lies.”
With no opportunity to take Maki or Kyra off the block, Dane’s new mission was to eliminate wildcard Kyra. But in a candid conversation during the week, Maki mistakenly told Dane he would nominate him next in retaliation. Clearly upsetting the current Head of Household, when given the opportunity to break the tie during the live eviction, Dane ultimately voted Maki out because he posed a threat to his personal game.
Earlier in the week, the Big Brother Canada agents were put through a rigorous training exercise in preparation for a very serious mission: Thursday’s Head of Household competition “Truth and Spies.” With lines clearly drawn in the house, winning the battle of the duels this week was do or die. It was a tense battle that saw someone from each side of the house – Chelsea and Estefania – make it to the final two. With both contending for control of the house, Chelsea dominated, becoming the first female to win Head of Household this season.
Watch Global’s The Morning Show today at 9 a.m. ET to catch Maki’s first broadcast interview, in addition to an exclusive sit-down with ET Canada at 7:30 p.m. ET on Global.
