For Immediate Release
TORONTO, April 9, 2021 – It’s game over for spice and everything nice as the dreaded double eviction sends Hamilton’s Victoria “Spicy V” Woghiren and Toronto’s Rohan “Roh Show” Kapoor packing from the Big Brother Canada house. Spicy V’s fate was sealed when Head of Household Beth Bieda put her backdoor plan into motion, making Victoria the night’s first evictee and jury member. After Victoria’s departure, Arisa shocked the remaining houseguests with news of the double eviction, turning their plans for this week upside down. Rohan Kapoor was the next casualty of the night and the second houseguest to join the jury house.
Earlier this week, Head of Household Beth Bieda devised a plan with her Sunsetters alliance to backdoor one of the season’s biggest threats, Spicy V. To set her plan in motion, Beth nominated Tera ‘Mama T’ Gillen-Petrozzi and Rohan “Roh Show” Kapoor as pawns, hoping one of them would win the Veto and pull themselves off the block. After a grilling POV competition, Rohan, the Veto King, won a Weber barbecue and his third consecutive Veto, which he used on himself. With Beth’s plan underway, Victoria went up on the block as the replacement nominee, leading her to campaign hard and wreak havoc on the house. But by playing the middle of the house, Spicy V had the numbers stacked against her and Beth was able to successfully complete the first backdoor eviction of the season.
“I got a little lazy, I started cutting corners and not tying my loose ends and I got caught. I don’t think there’s anything else I could have done,” said Victoria. “I’m so happy I made it to jury, you know I’m a superfan. All good here!”
Immediately following Victoria’s eviction, Arisa informed the houseguests of the double eviction. The remaining houseguests put their memories to the test in the “Before or After” Head of Household trivia competition. Kiefer Collison prevailed and instantly nominated Rohan and Breydon White without batting an eye. With their BBCAN lives on the line, the nominees fought hard in the fast-paced Stone-Cold Veto competition, but it was Tychon Carter-Newman who was able to maneuver his way to victory, choosing not to use the Power of Veto, sending Rohan to the jury house in a unanimous vote.
“I was just put in a tough position from the start,” said Rohan. “I tried to do as much as I could. I lost a couple of my really close allies and I was put in a position where I had to win a couple of Vetos to save my game and that’s what I did for as long as I could.”
Every Thursday directly following the houseguest’s eviction, watch “After the Eviction” LIVE exclusively on TikTok – an extension of Arisa’s in-show interviews.
