After winning the HOH this week, [Lumber] Jillian had to make her nominations earlier today. Jill talked Talla (having been the second last person left in the HOH Competition) into dropping by promising her safety. She promised the same to many people, including Emmett (duh!) and Tom.
With a genuinely good rapport with the majority of the house her nominations were no doubt a struggle for her. One rule of Big Brother is when you have power one week, act carefully with strategy, and be sure not to screw yourself in the long run. Don’t make enemies. Suzette did with her nominations last week, forcing an alliance between two of the strongest guys in the house and painting a target on her back. We’ll see how that plays out as the weeks go on.
When feeds returned after an excruciatingly long block (I took that time to catch up on some sleep), the outcome was Gary and Aneal on the chopping block.
Both talk a lot, using the social game & both trying to get on everybody’s good side. They’ll have the chance to win Veto to ensure their safety in the game but until that happens, maybe as soon as tonight or tomorrow, they’ll be feeling the pressure.

Well it was certainly an eventful night in the BBC House, starting with the ‘Live’ Eviction show where Kat was voted off.
Of course, by the time we were watching that, the free feeds had already spilled the beans on the liveness of the leaked the already in progress HOH Endurance Lumber Jack & Jill -eventually won by Jillian.
Now let me explain to everybody not quite in the know about some of the magic of Big Brother – perhaps Slice & Insight, though they’re really doing a good job overall.
When a Live Eviction goes down, the magic of BB is the fact that as soon as the show ends on TV, the feeds come back with the immediate aftermath. People wandering the house in shock of a twist/surprise vote/new HOH… Or in the best feeds…… Endurance Competitions.
It’s no secret the most looked forward to feeds of the Big Brother season are the endurance competitions – seeing some house guests drop like flies and witness the steely determination of others. Not to mention the jokes, ribbing, deal making and being able to witness the relationships of the people clearly shift as a winner gets closer.
What happened last night was a missed opportunity not only for the fans who have been looking forward to this for years, but for Slice & Insight as well. They could have (with some scheduling changes & not avoiding ‘Real Live’) made us Canadians proud to watch our houseguests, who we live vicariously through during the seasons, play the game.
Instead, it was a misstep on the part of “Production” & a disappointment to fans across the world who didn’t get to enjoy Big Brother Canada at its fullest.
I, for one, know that better can be done by us, and I am sure that after a few bumps in the road for all of us, Big Brother Canada will succeed in being one hell of an epic ride.
