Toronto, Canada – After last week’s unprecedented self-eviction, the #BBCAN8 superheroes took the game to the next level with an early backdoor blindside, sending Prince George’s Micheal Stubley out the door.
“The last few days flipped and flopped. I had people, then I didn’t have people,” said Micheal Stubley. “No one wanted to unite together and get the heads of the snake: Kyle, Chris, and Vanessa. Sadly, the courage wasn’t there and they ended up going with the rest of the house.”
This was a week of epic firsts in the Big Brother Canada house. In an epic comeback from being in Canada’s bottom four, Chris won the season’s first Head of Household competition opting to nominate Hira and Brooke as pawns at the first nomination ceremony. With eyes laser-focused on back-dooring Micheal, Chris’ master plan was set into motion after Hira won the Power of Veto competition. The aftermath was explosive but Chris stuck to his guns, putting Micheal up as the replacement nominee, and ultimately sending him home in a vote of nine to three.
Catch Micheal on Global’s The Morning Show Friday morning at 9 a.m. ET. And then watch Global Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT to see who wins the Head of Household competition. Big Brother Canada’s free live feeds are now streaming at bigbrothercanada.ca.
