Toronto, Canada – After 62 days in the house, BBCAN elite super-fan Maddy Poplett was evicted following a week of desperate plotting and soulless scheming. The Ottawa, ON, resident spent the last five years studying and planning for her inevitable Big Brother Canada experience, and until last night, she hid her love for the game from her fellow houseguests. But all the cramming and strategizing couldn’t keep her safe from Daela’s wrath and after turning on her own alliance to stay safe, her plans backfired. In a vote of two to zero, Maddy was sent to Jury House.

“I had a tough week in there,” said Maddy to host Arisa Cox. “This house really takes your ‘self’ away from you so I really struggled with that these past few days.”

Last week’s triple eviction left the house in a panic with two distinct alliances fighting for power. Even the two-headed comp beast, Daela, showed signs of cracking, with HOH Kaela toying with the possibility of getting rid of Derek, and inviting fellow East Coaster Will into a final-two Maritime alliance. Kaela put Maddy and Paras on the block, beat out her own showmance to take the POV win, secured her nominations and ensured that Will would be kept safe too.

With only two eligible houseguests voting, the HOH would be needed to break a tie. Former allies Maddy and Paras worked hard this week, pitching and campaigning to Derek, Will and Kaela to save their game, but in the end Maddy’s luck had run out.

Meanwhile, at Jury House, Ryan’s blissful week of solitude quickly came to an end as the victims of the triple eviction came parading in one by one. The destiny of the winner is now in their hands.

With only four houseguests remaining, tune in on Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global to see who will win the next HOH and secure their spot in Thursday’s two-hour season finale. And next Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET/PT, catch the special eviction, and find out who advances to BBCAN6’s final three!
