Finale Week Spoilers

Yes, this is the final week of Big Brother Canada - the finale will air next Thursday, May 2! Big Brother After Dark will no longer air, and the live feeds will be cut on Sunday. However, here are a few spoilers of what went down before the feeds went out:
  • Jillian won HOH...for the fourth time.
  • Talla and Gary were nominated for eviction.
  • Emmett won POV and will be the only one who votes in the eviction.
  • Talla appears to be the target for Emmett.
  • Talla is convinced Jillian and Emmett are taking her to the F3 and that it is Gary who will be eliminated. In the feeds, she was taking to the "dark" moose named Marge. She calls it "Henry", probably because they have never been introduced. Talla confided in Henry/Marge that Emmett eliminated Peter and Andrew for her, and she sees no reason that he won't eliminate Gary for her as well.  Let's just say Talla is delusional. Peter was right when he described Talla as not knowing what game she is playing.
So let's look at the F3...and who would win against whom:

Jillian: It's just like Dan Gheesling said. Jillian is playing for 2nd place. Unless she pulls out some monumental speech at the end which can sway the jury, she has no chance of winning. The jury will vote emotionally and against her because she burned each of them. I hope she is in the F2 because I can't wait for the jury questions, especially from Peter, Topaz and Andrew. And the rest of them for that matter. I also can't wait for Peter to tell her "I told you so" - he reserved that right with her.

Gary: He is certainly the emotional favorite, well loved by Canada and the jury. He would win in an F2 against Jillian, even though he is a "returning player" voted back into the game. He managed to do the impossible - survive eviction and drive a wedge into the East Coast Alliance, getting Jillian and Emmett to evict Andrew. If pitted against Emmett in an F2, it may be close but he would lose.

Emmett: Unless Emmett gets completely blindsided getting into the F2, he's got this in the bag. Or unless he does something stupid and concedes it to Jillian. That is doubtful, he's no fool for love. He told Dan Gheesling he already had a plea speech prepped if he's pitted against Jillian. I want to hear that speech. My best guess is that he had Jillian wrapped around his finger. He let her win the HOHs because he didn't need to win them. He never lied to anyone and he was up front with them.

Big Brother Canada Current Status

Final Standings:

Winner: Jillian

Final Two:

Gary Levy (previously evicted Week 6, returned Week 8)
21 years old from Toronto, Ont
Bartender/Artist/Fashion Stylist Assistant
His plan is to be social and friendly, all while gathering information on his fellow houseguests. he going to blackmail them? Nah, I don't think so. I've never met a bartender/artist/fashion stylist assistant I didn't like.

Jillian MacLaughlin
27 years old from Glasgow, N.S.
Elementary Teacher
This one's only plans are to make friends and plan as she goes. That's so high-school. Oh, right, she's a teacher. How is it she's able to do the show?


Emmett Blois EVICTED Jury Member
24 years old from Gore, Hants Co., N.S.
Dairy Farmer
Umm, a dairy farmer named Emmett? Well, slap me on the head and call me a turnip...will wonders never cease? Oh and here's a good one: he likes to flirt and he's "good at it". Maybe he thinks he's the next Bachelor Canada. And...he likes girls who play hard to get. Oh I bet he does. Mooo.

Talla Rejaei EVICTED Week 10 Jury Member

26 years old from Edmonton, AB
Independent Living Support Worker/Social Work Student
She plans on keeping a low profile because she is a "loud person who stands out". That's her be the exact opposite of herself. Then she says that "strategies don't work". Wait, I'm confused.

Andrew Monaghan EVICTED Week 9 Jury Member
38 years old from Halifax, N.S.
Insurance Sales Trainer
He says he has no strategy - but he'll play a good social game. Social game? Exactly what kind of social game are you planning, Andrew? Kind of hard to do when you're the oldest guy in the house. He better get used to the young-ens calling him "Grandpa".

Peter Brown EVICTED Week 8 Jury Member
26 years old from Surrey, B.C.
Web Content Curator
He plans to be nice to people because "they're really not people, they're characters." Hmm. I think he's been working a little too much by himself in front of the computer. Yep. This isn't an RPG Pete! Or maybe he believes in the Holographic Universe Theory. Can he see the matrix?

Emerald "Topaz" Brady EVICTED Week 7 (2nd in D.E.) Jury Member
27 years old from Scarborough, Ont
"Part-time" Dental Hygienist/"Full-time" Student
She is going to assess others, and then go from there. I think she may be the one who needs to be "assessed"... seems she doesn't know if she's an emerald or a topaz, Dental Hygienist or a student. Is everyone in for a ride on the split personality roller coaster?

Alec Beall EVICTED Week 7 (1st in D.E.) Jury Member
26 years old from Vancouver, B.C.
Social Psychological Research/Doctoral Student
Since he's a brown-noser, he's hoping to find a "dumb person" to form an alliance with. That's what he said, really. He'll have to lie and tell everyone he works at Walmart, otherwise he'll be out quick.

Anuj "AJ" Burman EVICTED Week 6 (Instant Eviction) Jury Member
32 years old from Scarborough, Ont
Director of Business Development
He says he's a talker and he can sell anybody anything, but he'll try not to annoy the other House guests. Who wants to start a betting pool with me on that one?

Suzette Amaya EVICTED Week 5
26 years old from East Vancouver, B.C.
Support Worker/Radio Producer and Host/Motivational Speaker
Wait...what? Why is it that half of these people have multiple job descriptors? Got to wonder if maybe there's some exaggeration going on here. Hey two can play this game. My official title is now Business Administrator/Accounting Supervisor/Artist/Tax Consultant/Nutritionist/Domestic Engineer/Landscaper/Teacher/Blogger. Sadly, I could go on. Well, at least she's going to put some of those skills to good use. She's planning to "do a lot of manipulating, stroking of egos, and riding of coattails." Sounds just about right for a motivational speaker. Oh and she says she's "the ultimate floater". Euuw.

Liza Stinton Evicted Week 4 (2nd in double eviction)
29 years old from Toronto, Ont
Tanning Salon Owner
She's just going to "shut up and listen". Is that what she says to her clientele?

Thomas Plant Evicted Week 4 (1st in double eviction)
24 years old from Edmonton, AB
Here's another one of those multi-job people. And another bartender. And another party animal. Hey, maybe he can hook up with Danielle. And another one who says that basically they have no strategy and they are just going to wing it. Great.

Aneal Joshua Ramkissoon EVICTED Week 3
21 years old from Richmond Hill, Ont
Communications Major
He says he'll try to come across as young and naive. Oh, I don't know if that will work...after all he's 21 years old. Sounds like he's really putting those communication skills to well spent on tuition. Oh and by the way, the topic of his thesis, he says, is....Big Brother.

Danielle Alexander EVICTED Week 2
20 years old from Calgary, AB (originally Ft. MacMurray, AB)
Student/Aspiring Actress
She is a party animal who expects to get her own way, even if she needs to be a bitch. Oh, I have no doubt about that. Why do I feel like she's going to be the season's drama queen? Hold on we go!

Kat Yee  EVICTED Week 1
27 years old from Toronto, Ont
"I'm going to lay low...keep the target off my back...downplay my physical abilities....just be a fly on the wall". I wonder where she tends bar at? The Don Jail?

Big Brother Canada Week 9 Recaps and Spoilers

Spoilers from Live Feeds

  • Emmett has won the week 9 HOH Comp "Brick by Brick"
  • There is a bit of controversy that Talla was cheating in the HOH Comp.
  • Emmett has nominated Gary and Andrew for eviction, reserving Talla as a replacement. Note: IF Talla should win POV and save Andrew, then Emmett's only replacement is Jillian.
  • This week's target: at first, Emmett planned Gary, but has seemingly flipped to Andrew. Emmett appears to be trying to develop an alliance with Gary, and trying to get Gary to separate himself from his previous connection to Talla (as of Friday April 19)
  • The POV Comp is called "The Price of Veto"
  • Dan Gheesling is an overnight guest and has been talking to each of the 5 remaining HGs about strategy
  • Gary won POV and has saved himself. Emmett nominated Talla as replacement.
  • April 24: Gary accidentally got a piece of broken glass in his eye and was brought to the hospital. He returned in the middle of the night.
  • Andrew evicted by a vote of 2-0 
Recap of Episode 24 - Sunday, April 21, 2013

No one is more pissed off than Andrew that Gary has returned. He won't let it go. He paces around the kitchen throwing out comments and complaints. Not a good idea Andrew. He tells us in the DR that the last week was basically a waste of time and they are back to the F5. Not to mention that it was Andrew who got Gary voted out, so all that work was basically shot out the door. Oh well. Deal with it. It's Big Brother. This is what they do. This is the game. Play it.

While Andrew is about to have an aneurism, Gary is in about to go ballistic and corners Emmett in the Haves room. He really wants to talk to Emmett. Emmett tells him to chill out and stay there while he goes to talk to Jillian. Now Emmett can't make a decision without consulting the little lady. Gary is persistent but Emmett explains that nobody wants him there. Emmett says he's okay with it and he doesn't see it entirely as a bad thing.

Eventually, Gary sits down with Jillian and Emmett. Emmett tells Gary that he will nominate him and Andrew. Gary tells a wee fib - Andrew is popular in the jury house. Gary tells another little lie. He would be happy with 2nd place. Jillian is only now starting to think that she may not be popular in the jury house, and that all her lies may come back to bite her in the ass. Gary's third lie is that Jillian is admired among the jury because she got them voted out. "People respect that".

Meanwhile, Marsha the Moose confronts Talla the Imbecile. Talla jumps. Then she screams. Marsha has a mission for Talla. She is to produce a one hour talk show called "Talking With Talla". Talla has to start the show with a monologue. Talla, true to form, asks "What's a monologue?" Wonderful. Talla then has to interview the other four HGs, getting them to reveal a unique fact about themselves, to which Talla must respond "I did not know that!" Emmett put it best in his DR was a talk show with someone who can't even form a complete sentence. Gary, Emmett, Andrew and Jillian must have known it was another reward challenge, otherwise I'm sure they wouldn't have sat there and put up with it. Talla completes the challenge and goes back to see Marsha. Marsha tells her she won the reward. Talla screams. Of course she does. If you don't watch the live feeds, you wouldn't know just how much Talla screams. She will be sitting quietly and then suddenly scream for no reason other than nobody has screamed for a while. Perhaps Marsha's next challenge is for someone to get Talla in a fracking straightjacket, and leave her in it. She may even need one of those Hannibal Lector masks.

Then there's the little matter of who to nominate for eviction. This is hilarious - it's like a little merry-go-round. Emmett tells Andrew that he's going to be nominated, to which Andrew replies, "You're an ass". Andrew is a little pissed that Talla plays the I-don't-want-to-be-on-the-block card. So Andrew runs to Jillian to snitch on Emmett. Jillian downplays it, despite the fact she and Emmett agreed that Andrew is dangerous and has to go this week. Now she is flip-flopping on who their target should be. Apparently Jillian trusts Andrew now. So Jillian goes to Emmett. Emmett rips her a new one because she never considered the possibilities. If Talla was nominated, and Andrew wins POV, the only other person to nominate would be Jillian. Emmett raises his voice, "Do you want to go on the block?" I guess Emmett finally grew a pair. Good for you Emmett. Jillian shuts up....or just shuts Emmett out. She says it's best for her game to keep Andrew. Well last week it was best for her game to get rid of Peter, despite Emmett's objections, so it's time to return the favour, bitch!!! But now she's afraid that Andrew won't trust her and Emmett to go to F3. What? Last week she wanted Talla in F3. This could get interesting. With only 2 people voting, there could be a tie and Emmett would make the final decision. Cool.

At the Nomination Ceremony, Emmett puts Andrew and Gary on the block. 

Recap of Episode 25 - Wednesday, April 24, 2013

A letter is slid under the front door. It's Talla who finds it and reads it to the others. So she can read after all.  Not long after, the doorbell rings and of course the screaming starts. Talla and Jillian race to the door - Talla with just one shoe on, the other still in her hand. Talla gets there first. In comes Dan Gheesling, winner of BBUS 10. Look out Dan! Oh oh, it's too late. Talla literally attacks him. She jumps up on him, gives him a death hold, flails her legs about while dangling from him...all this while constantly screaming in his ear. Poor Dan. He is either wondering if this is some bizarre Canadian custom or if Big Brother has purposely withheld this chick's medication. 

Which reminds me...what the fug is up with the constant screaming from Talla the Imbecile? Got to give the others credit for not picking her up by her scrawny ass and tossing her out the door. Or maybe some immersion therapy where they tie her to a chair and take turns screaming in her ear. That might work. Seriously Talla, seek help. Please.

Anyways, Dan manages to shake Talla off his neck much the same way as a horse gets rid of a pesky fly, and starts to get acquainted with the normal HGs. He stands up and announces he is dressed in black because of a funeral - for one of them. Big Brother has granted him the power of instant eviction and he gets to chose which HG to evict. Everyone is so dumbfounded that they all have the same vacuous look as Talla. Talla just looks like her normal self. Aw, shucks, it's just a joke. Jillian freaks out the most and runs to the storage room for some personal freak out time.

Dan starts to have one-on-one conversations with each of the HGs:

  • Gary Dan tells Gary that he has a tremendous amount of info from being in the jury house with the other that Talla, Andrew, Jillian and Emmett don't have. He should use it to his advantage. He also makes Gary aware of a way to break up the Jillian/Emmett showmance this week. If Talla wins POV she can save Gary and Jillian would be put up on the block. Well, that would never happen...Talla winning something?
  • Emmett Dan gets Emmett to analyze his competition. Yeah, he pretty much doesn't have any, including Jillian. Apparently Emmett already has his F2 speech to the jury ready, and it will blow Jillian out of consideration.
  • Jillian She tells Dan she has too much blood on her hands. In a F2 situation, she stands the best chance against Talla and the worst with Emmett. Dan basically tells her she is playing for second place. I guess she should have listened to Peter after all. 
  • Andrew Dan tells him he can't sit back and let Jillian and Emmett decide his fate. He needs to make a big
  • Talla We don't get to see Dan's conversation with Talla, probably because the editors couldn't make any intelligible sense out of it. From the live feeds, I can tell you that Talla was worried that she hadn't won any comps or made any moves. Dan tells her others have won under the same situation. He also tried his best to get her to understand that the Jillian/Emmett showmance has to be broken up, but it went over her head. No...she trusts Jillian and Emmett.
Which reminds me of something else. Has anyone else noticed how Talla seems to be getting "dumber and dumber"? It's as if her level of intelligence is dropping on a daily basis. It's a good thing there are only two weeks left because if it went any longer she would end up a vegetable connected to a feeding tube. Do you think there is any possibility that it's all just an act? Maybe she actually has 3 PhDs? Ah, okay, never mind.

The POV Comp is called "The Price of Veto" and Dan gets to host. They will be offered punishments and rewards in exchange for points towards the POV. The first person to buzz in gets the points. They can't see each other and there is no running commentary from Dan, so they don't know who wins what or who is leading. Emmett and Jillian basically throw the comp, so the battle is between Andrew, Gary and Talla.
Gary accepts having to wear a prison uniform for the week; being on slop for the rest of the show; staying awake for 24 hours; and no showers for a week. Andrew accepts a BB haircut from Dan. Talla managed to buzz in first for having the clothes she's wearing cut off; and she won a slop pass which she thought was a punishment, causing her to lose the points she got from cutting up her clothes. Dumbass. It's Gary who wins the POV thank God!!! Andrew is upset. Oh well. (in the live feeds, he thought the comp was rigged because he couldn't believe Gary was that quick on the buzzer)

Dan has his own little competition for the HGs. He gives them tasks in exchange for their own red bandannas. They all get one. As Dan is leaving, he tells the HGs that someone needs to make a big move. Big move as in breaking up that Jillian/Emmett showmance. Of course he doesn't say that to their faces.

At the POV ceremony, Andrew tries to convince Gary to use it to save him. Ain't going to work with Gary. Maybe if it was Talla standing there, she would fall for it. But Gary saves himself, and Emmett nominates Talla as replacement. So unless there is some sort of "big move" or bargaining or some new twist, it looks like Andrew will be joining his buddy AJ in the jury house tonight.

Recap of Episode 26 - Thursday, April 25, 2013

Emmett has come to the realization that there is only one week left in the game. He has kept up his end of the bargain, but now, everyone else is on their own. One thing to note is that we don't hear Emmett depending on Jillian as much as she depends on him. Interesting. He also says if Andrew wants to stay, he should be making a serious deal. But of course, Andrew is way too dependent on Jillian. See where this is going? It's Jillian! Andrew, you're a fool.

This week in Jillian's brain...She wants Andrew to stay, and thinks Talla doesn't deserve to stay. Looks like she didn't get the memo from Dan, just like she didn't get the one from Peter. Talla is the only one you can possibly beat in the F2. The only one.

There is a quick update from the jury house where everyone is happy Gary was sent back into the game. They hope he kicks ass and bitch slaps that lying bitch Jillian.

Andrew goes to Jillian. He's still convinced there is a F3 agreement with Emmett. So why didn't he talk to Emmett as well? Why is he just taking Jillian's word on this? Great, someone else who didn't get that memo from Dan. He should be campaigning vigorously, making a deal with Emmett and not putting all his eggs in one basket. He needs to make a big move and make it now.

Oh well, too late. It's time to vote for eviction. Only Gary and Jillian vote, and it's 2 to 0 in favour of evicting Andrew. He leaves without incident. Arisa asks him why he depended on the East Coast Alliance, and he said he's never played the game before. He also said he trusted Jillian, and fell victim to Jemmett. No really was just Jillian, cos she's a lying bitch.

the HOH comp is a true and false challenge based on pictures that were displayed for the HGs to study. The trivia questions were so, well, trivial that it was ridiculous. Stuff like "how many blue cups...?". It was Gary, Talla and Jillian competing. If they gave an incorrect answer, they were dropped into very cold water. The episode ended with only one question being asked...the ending to the comp, and the new HOH to be shown on Sunday.

Sunday will also be the last day for the live feeds and BB After Dark. There will be a surprise eviction on Wednesday, which will leave us with the final three.

Big Brother Canada Week 8 Recaps and Spoilers

Spoilers from Live Feeds

  • Jillian wins HOH in the "Fly the Coop" comp
  • Live feeds were down most of Saturday, but prior to this, Jillian was undecided on who to nominate, target and/or backdoor.
  • Game talk between Jillian, Emmett, Andrew and Talla made it appear Peter was the target this week BUT this appears to be a rouse. Andrew is the target.
  • Talla and Andrew are Have-Nots
  • Nominations for Eviction are Andrew and Peter.
  • Andrew won POV Comp and saved himself.
  • Jillian Nominated Talla as replacement nominee.
  • Big Brother had Talla and Andrew (as Have-Nots) sit down and watch a video of Emmett and Jillian making out. 
  • Jillian wants Peter out because it's best for her game, while Emmett wants Talla out because it's best for his. This may be a decisive wedge between these two.
  • Peter evicted in a 2-0 vote
  • Gary is back in the house 
Recap of Episode 21 - Sunday April 14 2013: Something's Rotten on the East Coast

Jillian wins the "Fly the Coop" HOH competition, and celebrates by doing her best impression of a chicken screeching when there's a fox in the henhouse. Then she ran around like, well, a chicken with it's head cut off. And everyone is so happy for her, because it's her THIRD time winning HOH.

All is not well in the East Coast Alliance. Talla is very upset that Emmett had the nerve to nominate her for eviction beside Topaz. Wah. Why not Peter, wah. Meanwhile, Andrew is sure that he will be on the block next. He goes and has a little talk with Jillian. He asks what was up with Emmett putting Talla up and not Peter. And why didn't Peter use his POV to save Topaz. If Peter had saved Topaz, Andrew would have been nominated as replacement, and either He or Talla would have been eliminated. It would have been the "smart" thing to do. They make fun of Peter, saying "Isn't he supposed to be smart? He's the stupidest smart person"...Then they figure it all out. Maybe Emmett is in with Peter...oooh...perhaps there was a deal!

Oh joy! Another HOH win by Jillian means another HOH room, tailored to her wants. Everyone's ecstatic about it. They all have to muster up the energy to put on their best smiley faces and feign interest, when they are all seething with anger. Well, everyone except Emmett that is. No, he is actually happy because it means yet another week of sex in the big round bed. I hope the CSI team doesn't show up with a black light to check out that room. It would probably glow from floor to ceiling. I wonder if Big Brother considers steam cleaning between HOH winners. It's probably the real reason Talla and Peter haven't won HOH...the thought of it...yuck. Andrew voices his opinion, "Another week of Jillian and Emmett up in the HOH room!" 

Everyone wonders who Jillian will nominate for eviction, try to strategize several moves ahead, and considers their options. Talla doesn't want to be nominated as the "pond". What a fuggin idiot. Jillian and Andrew sit her down and try to explain the game to her. She doesn't do anything, she hasn't won anything so her only value is to be used as a pawn. Meanwhile, Peter tells us his only ally is Emmett, then he tries his best to sway Emmett's mind. He tells Emmett the real threat to him and Jillian is Andrew. Emmett tells us about Peter's value - he can take the heat in getting rid of Andrew. Jillian cries to Emmett that she doesn't know what to do. Ah, the pressure of being HOH...such torment!!!

The Have/Have-Not comp this week is called "Rub-A-Dub-Dub". There are two teams: Andrew and Talla; and Emmett and Peter. One team member has to scrub the other in the tub with a bar of soap, dissolving the soap to expose a key which they must use to open a locked box for the win. Emmett whispers to Peter his strategy - just rubbing the soap on the skin won't work quickly, so he is going to rub the soap on Peter's bathing suit. Very smart. Of course Andrew didn't figure that one out. And Talla...ahhh, yeah it's Talla. This all proved hilarious. The Teammate doing the scrubbing stood behind the one in the tub, and the tub was one of those old fashioned, high sided ones. Sooo, you couldn't see what was happening. In fact, it looked like something else something else was getting rubbed vigorously. Emmett wondered why Andrew was smiling and staring over at them. It may have been enough of a distraction to Andrew (who was trying his best to wear down the soap on Talla's boney knee) for Emmett and Peter to win. Andrew then was suspicious and had to run over and inspect Emmett's soap. But it was a fair win and Talla and Andrew are this week's Have-Nots...

...and Talla goes off again. She doesn't want to be on slop. But wait Talla, there's more. A reward for the Haves. They get one luxury item per day. A punishment for the Have-Nots. Talla and Andrew must do the Have's chores, wake up one hour early every morning, and, get a 10 minute compilation video of Emmett and Jillian making out every morning. Gotta wonder for what purpose. Sounds like some weird Masters and Johnson experiment in human sexuality. Or perhaps they think Andrew is like the ape at that zoo who won't mate with the female. Or maybe Big Brother is trying to interfere with the game play again and do his best to drive a wedge into the East Coast alliance. It works because Talla has a hissy fit. She's not going to do it. Everyone is annoyed at how annoying the annoying girl is getting. Besides, doesn't she know how stupid it is to pull this kind of crap? She'll just make a target of herself. This scenario sounds good to Andrew and Peter. Let Talla play "Stupid Bitch Talla". Hey Stupid Bitch Talla, meet Lying Bitch Jillian. I'm sure you'll be the best of friends.

Sure enough, at the nomination ceremony, Jillian puts Andrew and Peter on the block. The edit they gave Jillian during this sequence was pathetic. They caught Jillian in the worst moments, giving the worst expressions imaginable. It didn't help when Jillian explained her reasons during the ceremony...and especially when she said she didn't nominate Talla because "she is just too cute to nominate". What? Are we hating Jillian yet? I am. I have for a while now. Even Emmett didn't look very pleased. you think that was a little clue? Like she intends to backdoor Talla? We can only hope. Unless Jillian is planning on taking Talla to the finals because that would be an assured win. Maybe even over Emmett? Yes, something's kind of rotten on the East Coast.

...and we have to wait until Thursday for that returning HG!!!

Recap of Episode 22 - Wednesday April 17 2013

Peter tells us that his alliance with Emmett and Jillian remains intact - Andrew thinks he is just a pawn, and Talla thinks she's safe. Emmett tells Jillian again that if Talla wins POV and takes Andrew off the block, then her only choice is to put him up. That argument is just as dumb as Talla. Slim chance of Talla winning anything. All of this leads Andrew to say that maybe Jillian and Emmett aren't as tight as we think. I agree. I think there are gaps there and that both of them would throw the other under the bus to get to the F2.

The POV comp is "Sleep Tight with the POV". It's a four stage competition: clean green paint "plaque" off a giant set of teeth with an oversized brush; put a slide-piece puzzle together; find a Serta Sheep with a red star on it's tag; and finally climb up a pyramid of mattresses and jump into bed. Yeah, it's just one big product placement for Serta and the Brick. The POV winner also gets a $10,000 Brick gift certificate. The HGs are given clear instructions not to talk or help each other. As if that needed to be said. Andrew and Emmett make it through the teethbrushing part by banging the brush on the paint. Emmett turns to Jillian and tells her to hit the brush. She says "What?" and he makes a banging motion. Big Brother chimes in to announce that Emmett is disqualified. Fine. BUT WHY WASN'T JILLIAN? Why didn't they DQ that LBJ (Lying Bitch Jillian) as well? She was cheating too. Emmett has another meltdown. Big time. In the end it's down to Jillian and Andrew, but it's Andrew who wins the POV.

Peter in his DR confession says he finds himself in real danger this week. He has been successful in staying undetected as a target up to now...a target is someone who "doesn't matter" and "I have not mattered my entire life". Now, I am loving Peter as much as I am hating Jillian, the lying bitch or Talla the stupid bitch.

Meanwhile, Emmett is still pissed. Andrew doesn't help the situation by gloating and saying stuff like he wanted to muzzle Emmett when he tried talking to Jillian. Now Emmett is thinking that Andrew doesn't have his back and can't be trusted. Hmmn, what an interesting situation we have developing here.  Jillian walks out of her room and announces, "Oh my, my room is so dirty!" Immediately the puppy dog jumps up to attend to her needs. No, she wasn't requesting sex from Emmett. It was Andrew. He sees it as a chance to go over strategy with Jillian. The room had a bit of garbage  laying around here and there. A bit. Jillian says she is now seeing Emmett as a threat because he has no blood on his hands. They make a deal and promise to take each other to the final two. They shake on it, rather enthusiastically I might add. Very convincing. Then there is a Jillian DR confession...."I lied". Of course you did Jillian. You are, after all the Lying Bitch. So, from now on....everything that Jillian says, we should all assume she means the opposite.

The red phone rings and everyone except Talla runs for it. But the lying bitch gets there first. The reward is called "Freeze/Unfreeze". The HGs must freeze when Big Brother announces and cannot move until they hear "unfreeze". Hey, Big Brother, you can really mess with the HGs with this one. Like pouring ice cubes down Emmett's pants or tickling the shit out of Talla. What do they do? First they send in a Sumo wrestler who makes his sumo=type threatening stances to Andrew, lays down next to Emmett and eats some food. Big deal. Then they send in 5 cheerleaders who prance around, give each HG a cheer and get a rise out of each of the guys. So to speak. Poor Andrew. First, Big Brother makes him watch a Jillian and Emmett almost-porn every morning, now he's getting turned on by these bimbos. When BB announces unfreeze, Talla jumps up with joy and screams. For some reason, she thinks the cheerleaders are like the best thing EVER!!! Oh, wow! We briefly hear her say "I should be a cheerleader". Well, she wasn't kidding. In the live feeds, she repeatedly practiced her own cheers. Much to the annoyance of everyone else. Is she fuggin crazy? Does she not realize she's already on thin ice? Does she think she can win for being the most nauseating person on the face of the Earth?

Then the final freeze. Andrew's brother Peter comes in to taunt him with videos of his nieces. Andrew's face leaks. How sweet. Not really. But he stays frozen in place, and everybody wins a video call from their family. This actually makes some of them nervous, like Peter, who hopes his family won't give away his true personality or secrets. He's been portraying himself differently inside the house. If I was Jillian, I wouldn't want to be hearing from my Mom. She must be very proud of her little girl. First, she's copulating with Emmett every 5 minutes - on national TV no less. Then she's become a lying bitch. Wow. I wonder if she realizes that people are Googling terms like "Jillian Emmett sex", looking for images and videos?

Andrew saves himself at the POV ceremony. Nothing unexpected there. Jillian nominates Talla as replacement and tells her, "You're a victim of circumstances". It's more like she's a victim of the Lying Bitch. Well, another victim.

Recap of Episode 23 Thursday April 18 2018

Talla is still whining and Jillian's still lying. Andrew is complaining, Emmett is pussy whipped and Peter is in full a state of perpetual depression. Such is life in the Big Brother Canada House. Lovely.

Peter has a sit down with Talla hoping to put words in her mouth that he can use against her. He then goes to Jillian and tells her that Talla is hoping to go to the F2 with Andrew. This was his downfall. Up until this point, Jillian was planning on voting Talla out. Of course, the stupid one runs to Jillian about Peter. So Peter tries to get it in Jillian's head that if she keeps Talla her odds of winning are 1 in 3, whereas keeping him is 50-50.

Emmett gives Peter the bad news that he is going home, and that it will be a unanimous vote. Emmett will vote with Andrew to evict Peter. Why? Well in Emmett's own words, "Jillian says a split vote is disrespectful". Ah...what? Disrespectful to Peter or to you, Jillian? "Jillian says". Huh. Hey Emmett, guess what Jillian is really saying with that? It's disrespectful to her because if it was a tied vote, the onus is on her to vote Peter out and having another jury member pissed at her. She doesn't give a shit about your game. It's time to wise up Emmett...that pussy's got a whip.

For some stupid reason, we have to be subjected to an assortment of BBUS stars and their opinions: Rachel, Hayden, Janelle and Ian. Completely meaningless dribble like Hayden saying the only way to stay safe is to win. Okay, thank you. Bah-bye now. Moving on...

It's time for the eviction vote. Talla babbles something for her plea. peter stands up and gives the Shield X sign. Andrew the Asshole goes in. He says, "I don't know what this "X" means, but I vote to evict Peter". Not only is he an asshole, he's totally clueless. Emmett the Spineless goes in, and votes to evict Peter. The audience is very upset. Before Arisa finishes reading the results, he stands up, grabs his bag and leaves. The good news is that he gets a standing ovation from the audience. Arisa asks his opinion on who will win the game. Emmett should win because he is the only one left in there who understands the game. Everyone else is useless. Talla doesn't know what game she is playing. Andrew is still in the game only due to luck. Jillian thinks winning HOH is winning the game. 

They cut to the Jury House. It's nestled somewhere deep in cottage country. AJ is living the good life there, but the Pawn Star is lonely. Gary makes his grand entrance wearing a pair of rather extreme, one butt cheek peek-a-boo pants, yelling "Alec is a Motherfucker!!!" Then Alec comes in and shakes AJ, exclaiming he never should have voted for him. The 3 guys are living the good life when Topaz comes in to ruin Alec's life. She blames Peter for it (not saving her with the veto) but good old Gary defends Peter. Gary seems to have a great handle on the gameplay.

It's time for Arisa to announce who the returning jury member is. AJ, Gary, Alec and Topaz make their superstar entrances. Gosh golly gee, these 4 all get along so famously. Even Alec and Topaz are still carrying on with their "friendship with benefits" thing. But, it's Gary that Canada has voted back into the house. Fuck yeah! Get in there Gary and bitch-slap that Jillian for us! He makes his entrance and everyone is so excited to see him. But you just know, their sense of security just went out the door with Peter.

The HOH comp is called Brick by Brick. Jillian sits offside, unable to compete and nervous as hell. Emmett, Andrew, Talla and Gary must assemble a puzzle of 19 colour pieces. They must keep the coloured side facing them, and not turn the pieces over. Meaning they are not to peek at what the finished puzzle picture is. Funny thing is...Talla, ever so slightly gives each piece just a little peek. There should be a disqualification, but probably won't. As usual, we won't find out officially who wins until Sunday, but already from live feeds, it looks like Emmett has won the week 9 HOH. Lets hope he grows a new spine.

Recap of Episode 18 - Sunday April 7 2013: Lies! All Lies!!!

The Iceberg Alley HOH Competition continues...
As the platform inches forward, the HG'a are sprayed with ice cold water. Emmett takes his hands off the railing; Alec, Peter and Talla drop their feet into the water. It's down to Jillian and Topaz. Topaz is clearly in a better shape. Jillian is determined to beat Topaz because the "East Coast Alliance" is targeting Topaz this week. So Jillian and Topaz strike a deal. Topaz & Alec and Jillian & Emmett will be safe this week. So Topaz steps off as a sign of good faith. Jillian promised. A deal is a deal...

...It took about 5 minutes for Jillian to break that deal. Yeah, she intends to put up Alec and Peter. This was all after her alliance members - Emmett, Andrew and Talla had a little talk with her. I guess they did the math and figured out if Alec and Topaz are safe, then Andrew or Talla would have to be one of the nominees. Sure, it's okay to break a promise is a game. I hope Andrew and Talla remember those words. The question is why was Jillian such a dumbass to make that deal with Topaz to include their guys, especially when Topaz really doesn't have that great of an alliance with Alec. She only needed to include Topaz.

Jillian and Topaz have a little talk. Jillian is careful not to mention Alec's name. I don't think Topaz is stupid. Did she really think she was fooling Topaz?

There's no food in the house. Just slop. Oh oh. That can't be good. The red phone rings and Peter breaks a record to answer it. He is told the phone will keep ringing for the next five hours and the HGs must each take their turns answering it. No matter what, they must answer yes to their challenge. If they don't complete the challenges as described, they will all be Have-Nots for the week - complete it, and they will all be Haves.

  • Jillian had to lick peanut butter off Alec's chest.
  • Andrew had to wear a French Maid's outfit.
  • Talla had to wax Andrew's legs.
  • Emmett had to answer the phone 5 more times. Each time he had to drink a glass of milk. Sounded easy for a guy who loves milk. He threw up after the 5th glass went down.
  • Peter had to eat a large salad - he has an aversion to salad. But he did it.
  • Alec had to take a 5 minute bath in fish guts.
Some challenges were easy, some were hard. But they are all Haves for the week.

Then it's time for the Nomination ceremony. Jillian has talked to everyone except Peter. They talk and she basically tells him that Alec was "hot and cold" with her - and threatened her. Oh dear. Poor Jillian. Then she tells Peter that Talla is the target. Too many lies. Not good. Especially when she accuses Alec of lying to everyone.

...So she nominates Peter and Alec. Alec regrets voting off AJ and not Andrew when he had the chance. Peter realizes it's time to win a challenge. Topaz says Jillian's word is bullshit. Finally the truth! And here's another truth...has Jillian told too many lies to win? Possibly.

Recap of Episode 19 - Wednesday April 10, 2013: Shields Up

After a conversation with Peter, we see Jillian in the Diary Room telling us she thinks she can "work with Peter in the future". I would translate this to mean she believes she can manipulate him, and get away with a couple of more lies. Huh! I guess she doesn't know Peter as well as we do. Gotta give Peter credit - he has kept his strategy under wraps very well. I'm kind of pulling for him.

Jillian, Alec and Peter draw Talla, Topaz and Andrew for the POV comp. Which leaves Emmett to be the host by default. He's pissed. He goes off to the storage room where he sounds off to Peter. He feels like the "fifth tit on a cow". Oh, there it is. There's the little farm-boy. You wouldn't hear that coming from a city guy, would you? Can you imagine that coming from Gary, for instance? Nope. Only a farmer would know that there are only 4 teets on a cow.

Emmett hosts the POV comp, dressed as a troll. The HGs must build a bridge made of planks, each having an event that happened in the house. The planks must be placed on the bridge in chronological order. Everyone has trouble with this. But then again, you never know who is throwing the game for their own agenda. Usually. But this time, Alec throws it...he asks himself if he really wants to win it. So, he just quits. Even though he had the best time. Everyone is dumbfounded. Peter wins POV, and Alec turns to him and flashes him "The Shield" sign.

Afterwards, Topaz goes to talk to Jillian. Awkward. Well for Jillian anyways. She knows she is going to put Topaz up as replacement. So she does her best to sugar coat the nomination to Topaz. So now it's Topaz and Alec who are on the block. The two people that Jillian promised would be safe this week. Funny how that happened. Later, Jillian, Emmett, Andrew and Talla are talking in the living room. Jillian is making fun of Topaz. Bitch. The thing is, Topaz is in the kitchen cleaning. Within earshot. As in Topaz can hear every word....and it's not as if they're whispering. It's almost as if Jillian was intentionally loud about it. Bitch. Bitch, bitch, bitch! Topaz describes her perfectly when she tells us that Jillian pretends to be Miss Sweet and Perfect, when she is really a two-faced bitch. From now on, her name is LBJ, for Lying Bitch Jillian. Because she lies and she's a bitch.

Andrew, Emmett and Peter walk out to the hot tub area and notice a new decor item. It's another mounted moose head on the wall. Now Peter is the only one of these three who have met Marsha, so he knows enough to stick around after the other two walk away. Sure enough, the new moose talks to Peter. This one is called Marge. She asks Peter for a cigarette and a shot of whiskey. Marge wants Peter to "fuck with the HGs". He has to make them think Big Brother is putting Tom back into the game. Peter has to replace the B&W picture of Tom with a colour one; put an extra chair at the dining room table; and put Tom's stuffed monkey under Jillian's pillow in the HOH room. Marsha asks Peter if there is another moose in his life, then exclaims "He's cheating on me".

Talla and Topaz notice Tom's picture and immediately start screaming. Then they run. Then they scream and run, then run and scream. Then a lot of screaming. Peter tells us that Andrew was about to "self-evict" himself from the house, because he was that upset. Jillian finds the monkey and thinks Big Brother is playing a game - like an Easter egg hunt, where they have to find stuff about Tom. Then Emmett notices the extra chair. Peter is convinced they are all stupid. The HGs are called into the living room. They are all on edge, expecting Tom to walk through the door. Funny. Peter breaks the news to them, and tells them they have won 5 luxury food items.

Alec talks to Emmett, trying to convince him that Topaz is the bigger threat. Well, she's a threat alright. But Jillian and Emmett aren't exactly playing smart. If they targeted Topaz, they would just have one pissed-off jury member. If Alec is voted off, there are going to be 3 pissed jury members. Plus, you can play Alec and Peter off against Talla and Andrew.

The POV ceremony: Peter saves himself as expected.

Recap of Episode 20 - Thursday April 11, 2013: Double Eviction

Emmett tells us there is only one person he trusts, and that's the Lying Bitch Jillian...LBJ for short. Why? Why are you trusting her, Emmett? Do you really think that if it comes down to you in the final, she won't throw you under the bus too? Maybe love really is blind.

Peter goes to talk to Jillian about targeting Topaz instead of Alec. Once again Jillian finds herself in an awkward situation. She doesn't want to have to break any more promises to people. No shit. But I think it's a little late for that. Like, way late. So late, in fact, that she is going to have to "Richard Hatch" her plea to jury members in the final. She doesn't lie to him. No. Instead she tells him if he can get another vote switched to Topaz to create a tied vote, then she'll get on board and eliminate Topaz. Sneaky. And manipulative. So Now she's not just a lying bitch, she's a sneaky, lying bitch. Poor Emmett.

Of course this doesn't happen. She knew it wouldn't. Alec is evicted by a vote of 3 to 1. When Alec talks to Arisa, he tells her he threw the POV comp to help Peter. He knew the situation was his fault, when he voted out AJ instead of Andrew.

The 2nd HOH comp is called "Plead Your Case". The HGs had to answer True or False to quoted pleas from HGs on the chopping block. It comes down to a tiebreaker between Andrew and Emmett who have to guess how long the Iceberg Alley Comp lasted. Emmett wins. He immediately nominates Talla and Topaz. Why? Well Talla annoys him and Topaz has a lot of endurance. Talla somehow takes it as a compliment. It's her first time on the block and she's kind of excited about it.

The POV Challenge is called "You've got Mail". Since there are only 6 left, they are all competing.  They have to run across the yard and dive into Styrofoam flakes and find 2 letters, then deposit them one at a time back at the starting line. Peter finds one. Then Topaz. Peter finds his second one and wins. No one else gets their first. At the POV ceremony, he is still panting. He doesn't use it. The vote is cast and Topaz is eliminated by a 3-0 vote. Peter voted Topaz to avenge Liza. Whatever. Probably just an excuse. Does he really think Liza gives a crap about him?

The HOH comp for week 8 is called "Fly the Coop". The HG's are wearing chicken heads. It's a good thing Emmett can't play, he would win for sure. They have to put eggs in cups - each egg has the name of the first 8 evicted House Guest. The catch? The eggs are on the other side of a chicken wire screen, so they are only able to use their fingertips. Do you get the feeling that Big Brother is running out of ideas for the competitions? 

The episode ends before the comp is finished, but Arisa tells us about the next Chevrolet Power Shift. Yep, it looks like the "Tom is returning" moose challenge was really a foreshadowing of an evicted jury member getting reinserted back into the game. And since it's basically a popularity vote, I am really looking forward to seeing Gary again. Let's hope he knocks that lying bitch Jillian on her butt!!!

Big Brother Canada Recap of Week 6

Spoilers from Live Feeds

  • Andrew won POV and did not use it.
  • Gary was evicted unanimously 
Recap of Episode 15 - Sunday March 31, 2013

Tonight's episode was all about the Chevrolet Power Shift Instant Eviction and the ensuing ramifications in the house. Just another producer-driven method of creating drama and exposing alliances - and they even managed to have it sponsored by Chevrolet.

We start off with Arisa in the intro giving us a glimpse literally behind the scenes of the house -  to remind us that this really is a stage set. It was quite interesting to see, because I have to say that the house was very nicely done. Anyway, the new HOH, Topaz, is called to the HOH room - a request that leaves everyone dumbfounded. Once she is there, all the other HGs are told to gather in the living room. Peter seems to be the only one who suspects something big is about to go down, and he's keeping his mouth shut. Topaz is told that this is an instant nomination and she has 5 minutes to nominate two HGs. So what does she do? She considers her talking to herself:

...Talla - everyone wants her out.
...AJ - to be a pawn again
...Andrew - as the target, but if he wins veto, a stronger player can be substituted.

Oh wonderful....because the TV came on in the living room when Topaz went into the HOH room. At first the HGs thought it was by accident, then they all shut up when it dawned on them what was going down. Gary goes into a lockdown mode, probably afraid that Topaz will say something about their alliance or her fauxmance with Alec. Talla starts to go ballistic, but Peter gives her a "shush". Not just for her benefit. Peter is weighing the opportunities in his head...I swear he is always thinking 5 moves ahead of the game.

Topaz nominates AJ and Andrew. Then Arisa lets her know the others watched and listened to her the whole time. She must feel like crap. And just as she thought things couldn't get worse...things get worse. Arisa announces it is also an Instant Eviction. Topaz probably believes that both her alliances will side with her and vote Andrew out. Wrong. Only Gary and Talla vote for Andrew. Alec votes for AJ, wondering how he will get himself out of this one. It's 4 to 2 for AJ, and poor AJ gets booted. Gotta say, AJ took it very well in his exit interview with Arisa. We will miss his comic relief. But AJ is the first member of the jury, and revenge is a dish that is best served cold.

Meanwhile, Topaz is screwed. She tries to recover by saying she doesn't remember what she said. Plus, she still doesn't know if they heard everything or not. Peter pulls Emmett aside and they talk in whispers. He explains how screwed Topaz is. What a dummy for talking out loud to herself and not recognizing how strange the situation was this is Big Brother, after all and nothing is ever that innocent. She is out of power now plus she has alienated Andrew and Talla. Peter is in Big Brother Heaven and loving every minute of it.

Topaz runs to Alec about his vote - why he didn't vote for Andrew after overhearing who her target was. Alec plays dumb. Topaz plays dumb. Then they accuse each other of a lack of trust for what's best for their faux-mance. Alec heads off to play the jilted lover. It's become a sympathy grab, and he's trying to make Topaz out to be the bad guy in it. Andrew goes to talk to him and he is buying the act. How convenient for Alec. Andrew now believes that he has Alec's support because of the vote - that Alec stuck his neck out on that one just to save him.

Topaz's reign as HOH was short - no luxuries or theme room. It's time to move on.  The HOH Competition is called "Diary Room Confessions". It's just as it's name suggests. The HGs have to guess which eliminated HG said what in their DR confession. It comes down to a tie breaker between Andrew and Talla. This is twice in a row where Talla gets to the end in these quizes. Is she maybe not as dumb as she's been acting? Nah.They had to guess, without going over, the number of yellow balls used as pollen in the Bees Knees competition. Andrew is afraid that Talla might do the Price-Is-Right-Underbid, and guess 4. So he puts in a good bid, and wins it. Looks like he'll be getting some revenge on Topaz. 

But wait a second. Along with his win, he has to name four HGs as this week's Have-Nots. Choose wisely, Andrew. He starts. Umm....Emmett. That's one. Peter pipes in. He points to Topaz and says, "What about her?" Topaz is two. Then Gary is three, just because he hasn't been on slop yet. Peter volunteers as the forth. This is when Gary goes ballistic.

And that's an understatement. He starts whimpering. He starts pouting. We hear stuff like "Have you seen my size?" and "How am I supposed to do it" and something about "fading away". This is still at the HOH comp set. We get the commentary from Emmett. It's the best one-liner of the night...someone has to fill AJ's shoes. Emmett says, "He (Gary) starts bawling like we're in a grocery store and he can't have Froot Loops!!!". Yet, it was so true. Gary runs inside, locks himself in the bathroom stall, screams and cries. He's unconsolable. Several HGs run to comfort him. "I just don't know how to do it with my body type". I think it was Emmett who says, "Well, you always say you want to lose some weight, so now's your chance". Gary cries, "Now you're calling me fat!!!". Oh dear God. He throws himself down on the floor and now he's wailing. And wailing. And wailing. And although I know that the sound techs kind of amplified the wails, I am still kind of looking at the screen and left asking myself, "were we just treated to an on-air audition for The Birdcage?"

Andrew shows off his HOH room. Vampire themed. Letter from his twin brother. All boring. But it isn't long before Gary is knocking at the door for a little conversation concerning Andrew's choices for nomination. Of course, it will be Topaz, because she had the balls to target him in that B.S. of an Instant Eviction fiasco. Of course she's the target. Then he tells Gary he will be the pawn, so that he will save himself and not Topaz with a POV. He then goes on to say if he or Gary should win POV, Gary would be saved and the real target with be put up - someone with power. Gary is confused. Wasn't Topaz the target? Andrew is flip-flopping on this. Gary says he expected more from Andrew. He expected Andrew to be stronger and really shake things up. Oh. But wait...

Yeah here it is. Andrew. In the Diary room. Psst...the real target? Gary.

Recap of Episode 16 Wednesday, April 3 2013

With only 8 HGs remaining, nerves are tender and tempers are flaring. Just what you would expect by trapping people inside a house for over a month and having their every move recorded. Something's got to break somewhere. 

With the Quatro now history, Emmett realizes he must ally with more than just Jillian. He needs numbers to fight off The Shield. Andrew is happy to oblige. Together they dream up the "East Coast Final 3". But they still need at least one more. Hmmn. Who can they get to help them? Perhaps if they start to show Talla they will protect her, they can have her. Meanwhile Peter is thinking the same thing. He is pretty sure that Talla is in the "pocket of the Shield". So it looks like Talla will be a key player in the next couple of weeks.

Andrew reflects on the loss of his bestie, AJ. He is out for revenge. He's so lonely without AJ that he has dinner with his picture. Talla notices, so Andrew points the picture toward her and says, "He's not listening, he's looking at your boobs".

The Power of Veto Comp is called "Build a Demon". The players are Andrew, Gary, Topaz, Alec, Peter and Talla. Jillian is the host - she's dressed a la tramp-vamp. Of course the comp is inspired by The Evil Dead, which just happens to be premiering this Friday. The players are blindfolded and tethered to a rope. They must search for body parts in a mucky pit of despair and then build a demon. Not as simple as it sounds, especially when the ropes get tangled. As Jillian yells out the play-by-play, she reflects on the competition being just like teaching - except for her slutty clothes and the body parts. What a great teacher she must be. Although Gary gives it a good try, it's Andrew who wins the large lucite V necklace. Now he's stoked. He's very happy because everyone is kissing his ass. Now he's a physical threat and a mental threat. He's just a threat, and I am sure everyone has noticed.

Along with winning the POV, Andrew wins a special advance screening of The Evil Dead and chooses Jillian and Talla to watch it with him. Talla spends the entire time screaming her ass off. So annoying. She needed a good bitch-slapping.

Once again, we hear Emmett and Andrew reflecting on this East Coast alliance. They consider Talla. Emmett thinks they can win her over if they show her they can provide protection. Right on cue, and very conveniently, we see Gary really going off on poor Talla. And of course Emmett steps in to comfort her. 

More drama. Talla is still scared from the movie. Give me a break. Anyway, Alec decides to scare her by grabbing her leg. This makes Talla want to sllep with someone, even though she is in a room full of people. Makes perfect sense. So she jumps in bed with Alec. Makes perfect sense. And who walks in and sees this? Why Topaz of course. And even though Topaz claims to be over Alec, she goes off on Talla. Oh but don't worry, they patch things up. At least they pretend to.

The POV ceremony is no big surprise...Andrew does not use it. Topaz hopes for a miracle to keep both her and Gary in the house. Something tells me there will be no last minute reprieve.

Recap of Episode 17 - Thursday April 4 2013: All That Glitters

Looks like Talla is the centre of the Big Brother universe. All the HGs seem to revolve around her. Alliances will depend on it. So what does little Miss Popularity do under all this pressure? Why she gets herself wasted. Yeah there was another reward from Canada that involves booze. Have you ever noticed that when booze comes into the house, Talla is on it right away. This was perhaps the worst yet. She was all over Topaz...with kisses and even a lapdance. Holy crap. Then she tries to get in the hot tub, she falls in...right onto Andrew. Then she peed on him. Lovely. And didn't Emmett say just last night that he was going to make Talla feel protected in order to gain trust in an alliance? Well move over big guy, cos this time it's Peter to the rescue. perhaps you should have been paying attention Emmett. Anyway, Peter carried her first to the bathroom and then to the bedroom...fully aware of the advantages to helping her.

But wait a minute, there will soon be another free agent in the house. I hate to say it, but Gary is pretty much a goner. I wouldn't be overlooking Topaz just yet. This whole East Coast thing is by no means a Final Three. Got to remember that Andrew put up Topaz to avenge AJ. Now Topaz may be looking for a little revenge of her own when Gary is evicted. Alec sees this opportunity to make amends with Topaz. And it seems to work. For now. And everyone seems to agree the next HOH comp will be the most important one yet.

Ah....Family Time. We get to hear from Alec and Peter's Moms. Yeah they're great guys. And smart. And funny. Then there is the families of Emmett and Jillian. How sweet. Both families are practically doing up the guest list and planning menus for the wedding. Boring.

Unfortunately the eviction went down just as planned, and Gary was evicted 5-0. The big surprise was that he took it so well. I was kind of expecting another melt down. He protested being put on slop more than getting the boot. The best part was when he exited the house to the overwhelming cheers from the audience. Arisa told him that everyone feels like they know him...and his alter egos. We will miss you Gary Glitter!!! But I would love to know what advice he gave to Topaz....what side she should ally herself with.

The HOH Comp is called Iceberg Alley. it's an endurance challenge. They are standing on a ledge with just a handrail to stabilize themselves. Emmett of course opted out of wearing a shirt. Bad move. There is a pool of what looks like cold water in front of them. The iceberg jerks and Talla screams. Of course. Is it just me or are her screams really annoying. I am getting kind of tired of that whole act. Then cold rain and wind starts up to add a bit of difficulty to the challenge, and make Talla scream some more. But this won't end tonight, and we will have to wait until Sunday to see who wins. I will post any info derived from the live feeds if and when they come back up. Oh and one more week is another double eviction. So hold on it may be a bumpy ride.
