Amazing Race Canada Season 1 Moments

This video of favorite moments reminds me just how great Season 1 really was!  Give it a watch HERE Of course my favorite team was Jet and Dave...and my favorite moment was Episode 6 "Check the Cannons", when they created the fake clue in Levy, Quebec and had the others running through the entire fort late at night.

I am hoping Season 2 will have at least one team to provide us with some humour to break up any overly dramatic racers. From what I have seen, there may be two.

Big Brother Canada Recap of Episode 27 Finale Week HoH and Nominations

They continue on with the Before or After competition for the new Head of Household. Why they couldn't include this at the end of last Thursday's episode is beyond me - all they would have needed was 2 more minutes.

Ah, I see, they have to backtrack and tell us how before Adel's eviction, Neda had to tell him
that he was being evicted. This pisses the hell out of Jon, because they agreed they weren't going to tell Adel. Sneaky Neda did it on purpose because he didn't want to make a bitter jury member out of Adel. She told Jon it was a mistake. Right.

Finally we get back to the issue of the comp results. It all comes down to a tiebreaker. The question is: How many coloured squares were flying around in the Twistos Challenge Blown Away, without going over?

Neda said 800
Sabrina 999
Heather 300

That's right. Sabrina not only wins her very first comp, but guarantees a place in the final 3. Nobody can believe it. They can't stop complaining. Sabrina gets her HoH room. All she can say is "Oh my God!" Sabrina is on slop because that was her punishment for seeing her sister. So there are no treats or booze. Jon complains. More OMG, OMG, OMG. Neda complains and does a pretty good impersonation of Sabrina.

Neda tries to smooth things over with Jon because he knows she has not exactly been truthful and loyal to him. So, she complains and throws it back at him. Wonderful.

Ding dong, the doorbell rings. It's Gary Levy and he's there to get the 4 remaining HGs ready in formal attire for the 2014 BB Canada Awards. I think they got the clothes from Proms R Us. Sabrina is wearing a cream coloured dress that she thinks is gold, and doesn't exactly flatter her figure. Should have stuck with black. Heather is wearing a blue chiffon dress, probably from 1962. Blech. Neda is has some kind of silvery, billowy thing over her boobs and shoulders. Looks like a duvet. Jon actually looks the best in his tux, except for the blue bow tie. Good God.

Best Look goes to naked Arlie.
Best dance goes to Jon and Allison.
Best Dramatic Cry goes to Sabrina. She was actually nominated for all 3 spots.
Best BFF Moment goes to Kenny and Sarah.

Then they watch a montage of the season. Heather cries at everything. Sabrina yells "Oh my God" a lot more.

Sabrina tells Jon is going on the block. Sabrina says she is stuck between a rock and a hard place in picking Neda or Heather to go up next to him. Jon explains it doesn't matter,,,,what matters is who wins Veto. This kind of demeans Sabrina's reign as HoH. She just doesn't get it. The only thing the HoH gets you in the F4 is a guarantee that you get to F3. Who she nominates makes absolutely no difference because the person who wins Veto is the one who has all the power. So the Veto holder can send home whoever they want. There may as well not be a nomination ceremony at all.

They make Sabrina go through the motions anyway. She nominates Jon and Heather. The live feeds are down for the remainder of the season. However, the PoV comp was played yesterday. If you want to know who won and if Neda will go up as a replacement or not, go to my BB Canada 2 Standings post HERE

Wednesday's show should cover the PoV comp, Veto Ceremony and Eviction. The finale is on Thursday and should cover the 3 competitions to determine the final HoH, and this person will vote out the last evicted house guest (who doesn't even get to go to the Jury house for rest). Then of course the jury vote to determine the winner. Don't forget, the vote is for the winner, not to vote out. Just making sure. Don't want to see anybody get Topaz'd.

Big Brother Canada 2 Recap of Episode 26 Week 9 Live Eviction, Plus Side Show

Sabrina tells Jon, Neda and Heather that she can do damage control in the jury house after Adel gets there. Both Jon and Neda are trying to blame the idea to target Adel on each other.

The houseguests get their punishments for seeing their family and friends. Adel's campaign to stay is to make sure Neda and heather know he is going to turn the jury against them. Make them very bitter because, he says nothing can change a bitter jury member. He picks fights with Sabrina, more of a playful, bickering kind of fight. Sabrina counters everything he throws at her. They give Adel's storyline about turning his life around. So you pretty much know where this is headed.

Neda doesn't know what to do without her belongings. Meanwhile Jon doesn't know how to spend 24 hours by himself in the HoH room. Sabrina talks to Heather like she needs to be told what to do, and Heather doesn't appreciate it. She gives her argument why they should keep her over Adel, and how she would be easy to beat in the F2. Sabrina says the same stuff to Neda. More Adel coverage. He has to stay awake for 36 hours and he has a hard time. He thinks he is losing his mind, and falls asleep with his eyes open.

Adel then tries to campaign to stay with Neda and pulls the "we are both from the middle east and our families have had to struggle" line. Neda doesn't buy the cultural connection argument.

Jon is released from his solitary confinement in the HoH room,and tries to campaign for Adel. He doesn't trust Sabrina. Once again, Neda doesn't buy that argument. Both Jon and Neda know they have reached the point where they must separate and start playing for themselves, not each other.

Meanwhile in the jury house, Arlie and Allison are having a great time. Rachelle shows up to tell them the obvious. They should have kept Arlie. She tells them Adel won HoH and has the tape of the nomination ceremony ... you know, the one with all the pointing. Rachelle gets weepy about it again. The three of them agree that Adel is in trouble after this. They have no idea how right they are.

Time for the pre-taped Live Eviction. Adel is dressed in his official Big Brother onesie, because he knows the value of promotion (now available online on the BB Canada site), while Neda covers hers up with a garbage bag dress she fashioned herself. Adel and Sabrina give their pleas to Neda and Heather. Blah, blah, blah. Adel is evicted by a vote of 2 to 0.  When he leaves, he tells them the truth about that Veto power he had. He comes out on stage with his defiled Canadian flag and everyone yells "Wake up Canada". He is still on Jon's side and is convinced Jon will leave. He then yells "Wake up Newfoundland".

The comp for the next HoH is called  Before or After. They have to say which event occured before or after the other. Heather is out after the first question. Sabrina and Neda are tied. We will have to wait until Sunday's show to find out, but you can check by Standings board HERE if you want to find out.

From Side Show:

Peter and Gary give their rundown on what its like to be in the F4. Sabrina has to convince everyone she is dead weight. Heather has to win the next HoH to survive. To win, the house guests have to convince the others they are the baddest in the house, but then convince the evictees they are the greatest.

Rachel Reilly gets a montage because she is a BB superstar, then comes out on stage to compare boobs with Gary. Apparently she loves this season of BB Canada and really loves Kenny, Heather and Sabrina. Go figure. She likes the Twistos Twists and the tasks they have to do. Like Allison and Jon getting drunk without letting anyone else know. She doesn't like floaters and names Adel as this season's floater. They give her time in the Diary room but they didn't let her meet Marsha. Good thing. I think Marsha would have ripped her a new one.

They let Rachel talk to the house guests, but I really don't know what was said because of all the Sabrina screamings. By screamings, I mean screamings. She sounded like 6 people.
