It was a busy night in the Big Brother Canada house and it all began with Tom sitting pretty, thinking his target would be evicted with a 10-0 vote. He obviously forgot to ‘Expect the Unexpected’ and Canada’s Power of Veto sure threw him for a loop.
Now, I’m not going to complain about Suzette’s angelic editing this week (only showing her one ‘redneck’ comment about Tom and tearful apology, not every other foul word against him) or the influence Canada has, when in Big Brother it’s usually only Production who interferes. So I’ll stick mostly to the facts.
Tom may be an asshole, but he was royally screwed over by Canada tonight. Which, apparently, was the goal. BRAVO CANADA! You succeeded in making Suzette feel loved and Tom feel fucked. Personally, I like Tom 10 times more than Suzette, whose falsely enthusiastic greetings, questions, exclamations and every single word grates on my eardrums through my headphones. Every. Time. She. Speaks.
Anywho, Canada used the Veto on her and she was all of a sudden safe. Toms face when it was announced was priceless, I’ll admit. I laughed so hard at it, it hurt. And it wasn’t a quick one; it was a lingering look of shock. I may watch it multiple times just for the sheer enjoyment.
After winning the Power of Veto, Gary, unsurprisingly, chose to take himself off the block, leaving Jillian in the position of naming a replacement nominee. After debating who to nominate in the first place, and deciding against nominating Danielle (after a heart to heart) she now had the chance for a do-over.
Danielle, having made her loathing for Jillian clear (in DR & out) actually thought she and Jillian were on geed enough terms the she volunteered to play the pawn, In doing that, she made it even more clear she has never ever bothered to watch Big Brother. Later asking about volunteering “Is that bad?”. Really.
So, no surprise Jillian took Danielle up on her offer of playing the pawn, however we all know in Big Brother the pawn is never safe. In fact, it’s usually going to be backdoored. So, Danielle, realizing that she majorly fucked her game started to gather votes. She’s sure she will be safe and Aneal will go home, however the tide has already turned against her.
It’ll be fun to see her face tomorrow as she’s walking up the stairs. It’ll be classic.
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.
