A BOMBSHELL LEAVES THE HOUSE IN PIECES AS ERICA IS EVICTED ON BIG BROTHER CANADA
Canada Votes Massively and Saves Ryan from Eviction
Watch the Head of Household Competition on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global
Toronto, Canada – Canada has saved Ryan Ballantine and the Big Brother Canada house is turned upside down after Erica Hill from Pickering, ON was sent home in his stead. After a week in absolute hell, Ryan was the clear target in this week’s BBCAN house. Under the cold, merciless thumb of Head of Household Kaela, the season’s most ruthless HOH to-date, Ryan spent a week being painted into the villain he never wanted to be. But to the house’s shock, Ryan’s alliance was with the almighty Canada, who saved him from eviction in a 24-hour online vote leading into Thursday night’s show. After Arisa dropped the beastly bombshell on the house, Kaela, the pint-sized punisher, aimed her fire at Erica. Then, in a vote of five to two, Erica was sent packing, leaving both Will and Ryan in the house thanking their lucky stars.
“Honestly, I understand why Kaela had to [nominate me] because she can’t play the game as well as I can,” said Erica to host Arisa Cox. “I just wanted to go in the house and have fun and whenever I came out, I just wanted to feel proud of the game I played.”
The week started with Ryan on the block next to pawn-of-the-week Will. Ryan’s destiny looked grim after he narrowly lost the Power of Veto win to Johnny who, much to Ryan’s devastation, decided not to mess with Kaela’s nominations. Unbeknownst to Ryan, Canada was working hard on the outside to vindicate him, and ultimately took him off the block, forcing Kaela to immediately name his replacement. After winning the POV in week two, Erica quickly established herself as a comp beast in the house. With a target on her back, she knew early on that winning competitions was her only way to stay safe. But this week, Erica’s immunity powder blew up in her face as she was back-doored and sent home.
After Erica’s eviction, the houseguests had to collect themselves to go straight into a trivia-based HOH competition called “Before or After.” To find out who won HOH, tune into Big Brother Canada on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
