For Immediate Release

TORONTO, April 18, 2023 – Tonight’s first-ever Fatal Feast episode wreaked havoc in the Big Brother Canada Manor with a Chain of Safety eviction that sent Edmonton’s Santina Carlson to jury in a unanimous vote. Second-time HOH Kuzivakwashe “Kuzie” Mujakachi was the first player to save one of her fellow houseguests, and ultimately, it was Santina, Terrell “Ty” McDonald, and Renee Mior who were left to fight for their safety in the “Too Hot to Candle” competition, which Ty won. With only 30 minutes to campaign, nominees Renee and Santina stated their cases, but the houseguests decided it was time to say goodbye to Santina.

“I’m not shocked,” said Santina. “I knew I was a threat in that house, so they got their shot and they took it.”

Tonight’s special eviction episode began with Daniel Clarke stumbling into the library as the lights flickered and books began to fall. Hope Agbolosoo and Anika Mysha quickly found Daniel, and the three of them worked together to solve the clues found in the books. The three then allowed all the other houseguests in the library to help except Renee, Claudia Campbell, and Shanaya Carter. Thinking the clues would lead to a special power, the houseguests discovered that the clues in the books, when pieced together like a puzzle, revealed an invitation to the Feast.

With tensions in the house running high, the houseguests gathered for the dinner and Arisa quickly informed them that the feast this evening would be a fatal one featuring the dreaded Chain of Safety. As HOH, Kuzie chose the first houseguest to add to the Chain of Safety, forcing the others to do the same until Ty, Santina and Renee were the last ones standing. The trio in danger went straight into battle mode, with Ty winning the “Too Hot to Candle” competition with the fastest time, guaranteeing his safety, and leaving Santina and now four-time nominee, Renee, on the block.

Despite some last-minute emotional pleading to keep her, Santina couldn’t sway any votes and was sent out the door to jury in an unanimous vote of 6 to 0.

Watch the drama continue on Global and STACKTV, tomorrow night at 9 p.m. ET/PT to see who becomes the new Head of Household.
