For Immediate Release

TORONTO, April 16, 2021 – In true Big Brother Canada fashion, tonight’s episode was the definition of “expect the unexpected”, as in a shocking turn of events, Paradise, Newfoundland’s Tina Thistle was evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. After last week’s double eviction, first-time Head of Household, Jedson Tavernier, nominated the “T & T” duo – Tina and La Salle, Ontario’s Tera Gillen-Petrozzi – for eviction. After dominating the three-part POV competition, Tera took herself off the block, allowing Jedson to move forward with his backdoor plan of getting major threat and fellow Sunsetter Kiefer Collison out of the house. But the radio host campaigned hard to prove to the Sunsetters that he was loyal to the soil and better for their game, ultimately sending Tina to the jury house in a vote of 3 to 1.

“I think the initial plan was probably to keep Kiefer anyways,” said Tina. “I think they looked at my relationship with Kiefer and Tera and me being the middle person, and they figured if they separated that then Kiefer would be more loyal to the boys and Tera then would be, essentially, alone.”

After Monday’s dramatic HOH competition where temperatures and tempers ran hot between Tera and winner Jedson, “The Sauce” alliance, comprised of the unstoppable trio Tychon, Beth and Jedson, targeted the “T & T” duo, knowing they had a strong backdoor option in their back pocket. Nominated alongside her house bestie Tina, “Trick-Shot Tera” pulled out her first POV win and chose to use the veto on herself. Confident that Breydon White was the trio’s main target for the backdoor, Kiefer was stunned to learn that Jedson planned on putting him up as Tera’s replacement, prompting an emotional conversation between himself and his fellow Sunsetters. But things change quickly in the Big Brother Canada house and the radio host was ultimately able to convince both “The Sauce” and Breydon that keeping him safe was best for their games, resulting in Tina’s eviction from the house.

Thursday’s episode concluded with the HOH competition, Trivia Audiobook, where Arisa read excerpts from “The Unauthorized History of BBCAN9” to the remaining houseguests who had to determine which of the evicted houseguests were being quoted. Tera prevailed and won, becoming the next HOH in the BBCAN9 house. However, Tera’s reign could be foiled as Arisa announced that next week is a fake double eviction where two houseguests will be evicted and have to compete head-to-head to win their way back in.
