For Immediate Release
TORONTO, April 23, 2021 – It was the ultimate fake out of the season in tonight’s jam-packed episode, as major threat Jedson Tavernier was eliminated in a unanimous vote of 3 to 0 under the reign of HOH Tera Gillen-Petrozzi. But when the houseguests found out it was a double eviction, the tables quickly turned and Tera followed out the door. With the remaining houseguests elated to know they had made final four, they were stunned to learn that tonight’s double eviction was fake and one of the evictees would be returning to the Big Brother Canada house following a head-to-head battle which airs Monday at 9 p.m. ET.
After last week’s emotional nomination ceremony, which saw HOH Tera nominate power couple Jedson and Beth Bieda for eviction, Jedson went on to win the Veto in a nail-biting POV competition. With the #1 target likely to take himself off the block, Kiefer Collison devised a plan for the rest of the house to convince Jedson that if he used the Veto on Beth, he’d be kept safe sitting on the block with Breydon White. With his head in the clouds, Jedson conceded and used the Veto on a noticeably shocked Beth. Keeping her word, HOH Tera nominated Breydon as the replacement, but Jedson was completely blindsided by his allies and was the week’s first evicted houseguest.
Immediately following Jedson’s eviction, Arisa rocked the house by announcing a second double eviction of the season. In the Head of Household competition, “Say What Now?” Tychon Carter-Newman proved to know his dates best, winning HOH and instantly nominating Tera and Beth for eviction. With all five remaining houseguests eligible to play in the POV competition, it was Breydon who captured his first POV win of the season. Forced to make a quick decision, he chose not to use the Veto, which unexpectedly sent Tera packing in a unanimous vote of 2 to 0.
But before the night was over, Arisa informed the remaining houseguests that tonight’s double eviction was fake and that Jedson and Tera will compete against each other in a competition called “Heads Will Roll,” where one of them will win their way back into the house and the other will head to the Jury house.
