Arisa tells us that we are about to drop a stunning shockwave on the HGs, and they have no idea. Tonight is a special surprise eviction and in less than an hour, our final four will become the final three. Who will make it to tomorrow's massive finale? It's time to find out!
Previously on Big Brother Canada, after HoH Kevin won the veto, he shocked the house when he used it to save Ika, then put up Dillon as her replacement. The card shark gambled that a split vote would let him decide Demetres' fate. But when Karen voted Big Country out the door, Kevin's big play became a big bust!
At the HoH competition, with Kevin on the sidelines, Demetres, Ika and Karen squared off in a battle of the X's, and the Greek made history when he nailed his record-setting fifth HoH of the season. With the road pointing toward an epic showdown, the two titans brace for a brawl. With the stage set, Demetres kept his eyes on the prize, and nominated Kevin as his target, and Karen as the pawn.
Tonight, who will survive Big Brother's parallel universe and win the most important PoV of the season? Whose final four pitches will hit home runs with the jury? It's all happening now on Big Brother Canada!
Arisa welcomes us to a special eviction and tells us how things stand now.
Demetres is HoH, and Karen and Kevin are on the block, but tonight's all-important PoV challenge could change absolutely everything. Let's get started and tell the HGs about this special eviction.
Arisa calls the HGs to the living room and they scramble to get seated on the couches. Arisa makes the announcement that in less than an hour one more HGs will be evicted. Tonight is a surprise eviction. Ika says "Oh Lord" and Karen says she is shaking.
We flash back to the nomination ceremony. Demetres tells us he is HoH is week and that's great because it guarantees his spot in the finale. Now he just has to get Ika there with him and it just comes down to one of them winning the veto or else there's a good chance that Ika will go home.
The HGs are in the kitchen. Demetres asks Ika if he said something wrong. Karen and Kevin note that there will be no more nominations. Kevin tells us that he is playing alone in this game. No one is going to take him to Final Three. If he wants to see the finale night, he HAS to win this PoV. It's the most important one this season. If he wins, he can take himself off the block AND decide who goes home.
Demetres and Ika talk in the storage room. Ika is upset that Demetres gave Kevin credit in his nomination speech. Demetres says he was trying to undermine Kevin's "underdog" story.
Demetres and Ika are laying down in the HoH room. Ika tells Demetres that she's glad he made final three. She apologizes for hurting his feelings and being mean. She tells him he played a good game...he won seven competitions. Demetres says he has to think about veto, and after this it will be 8. He can't let Kevin win. They talk about being final two together and walking out together hand in hand.
Kevin sits on his bed in the blue room and talks about the veto competition being his shot to get to the finale. If any of the others win, he's done. This competition is one of the biggest moments of his entire life. If he wins, he is in finale night. It's right there! So much pressure.
Arisa reminds us of the two-hour season finale tomorrow night, starting at 7PM BBT: Eastern. Arisa reminds us of the importance of this veto competition and we return to the house for the PoV competition, where Big Brother has turned the HGs' world upside down.
Kevin reads the card and tells us how the competition "The Down Under" works. The HGs have stumbled into the multiverse where parallel worlds and timelines don't always make sense. They will have a max of 45 minutes to chronologically place clues on the buildings in the upper world (on top of the platform) and place the answers on the corresponding buildings in the world below (on the bottom of the platform, accessed via a ladder). The HGs who can align their two worlds the fastest will win the PoV and be guaranteed a spot in the finale.
Kevin tells us this veto is the most important moment of his BB career, potentially his lift. In one universe he loses and goes home, in the other, he wins and can win this entire game.
In this challenge there are two worlds. We find clues in the upstairs level, and the answers to those clues are on the downstairs level. Kevin reads the clues and tells us his strategy is to first focus in the world up top, find the clues and place them in chronological order before he places them on the buildings.
Kevin tells us he knows there were 6 HGs who were never Have-Nots, so he places the clue on a building in the top level, runs down the ladder, and puts the answer on the building directly below. He says these clues are easy for him. He knows the correct matches, but it's hard to put the answers on the upside-down world below. It's disorienting, and very difficult.
Kevin tells us he has no friends in this house, so he studies whenever possible. His job is to be more prepared than the rest of these "hooligans". Kevin buzzes in and we see he has 8 incorrect. He scrambles to move clues around. Kevin tells us that every second he wastes is one step closer for him being a second-time loser in this game. He buzzes in and has four incorrect...again, and two incorrect. He tells us he doesn't know what's wrong. It all looks perfect. Then it hits him! The triple eviction! He knows it's day 55... he can never forget that. He buzzes in and gets the green light. The irony of the triple eviction costing him that much time. If it means he leaves, he'll be devastated.
Karen is up. She tells us she is dreaming of winning this PoV to be the sole vote to evict Kevin. Robert. Martin. Karen struggles using the ladder back and forth. She tells us that she knows that for her slow and steady hopefully can win the race. She won't win by running up and down those stairs, getting winded and frying her brain out.
On the lower level, Karen is struggling, and even knocks her head on one of the upside-down buildings. In the DR, Karen quotes Ika Wong "Big Brother, you are trying me!"
Karen buzzes in and has 10 incorrect. Karen tells us her brain is just jumbled. She buzzes in and has 6 incorrect. She doesn't understand what she's doing wrong.
Karen tells us that things are not going well in this challenge but she gives herself a pep talk from the DR: she has to hunker down, stay focused and stay in it. She didn't come here to give up. She has to pull up your bootstraps and get at it. She buzzes in again and gets the green light.
Demetres is up. He tells us that he is HoH this week and therefore safe, but he needs to win to keep Ika safe and send Kevin home. Straight up, it's do or die. He has been studying every day all season, waiting for this competition. He knows it's his brain that will help him win this competition and not his body. He buzzes in and has 10 incorrect. He goes back and checks clues and answers. He doesn't know what change to make.
In the DR, he tells us it's so frustrating. It feels like he's been doing this puzzle forever. He needs to snap out of it and pull through!
Demetres continues making changes. He buzzes in and still has 8 incorrect. He reaches the maximum time. Demetres tells us that when BB told him that he hit the max time, he was soooo disappointed in himself. It feels like he got punched in the gut. The fate of Ika's game is now in her hands, and if she doesn't pull out a win, there's a good chance she's going home.
Ika is up. She tells us it all comes down to this veto competition. She moves quickly to put clues in order. Ika tells us that she has not won a single competition all season and it has shook her to her core. She moves to the lower level to place answers and finds it very confusing. She goes back and forth between levels to check.
In the DR she complains that BB is tripping her up! She buzzes in and has 6 incorrect.
Ika tells us this competition is trying her, but all she can do is tell herself that she's got this, she can do it, stay focussed and get it done. She knows her upstairs events are in the right order. Then she realizes the answers for the triple eviction and the ice bath are the wrong order. She fixes it and gets the green light but she feels like time is against her and it's SO frustrating.
Karen reads the results.
The winner of the Power of Veto, with a time of 19 minutes and 15 seconds, is Kevin!!! Kevin drops to his knees in gratitude as Demetres and Ika congratulate him.
Kevin is overwhelmed. He tells us that he has poured his heart and soul into this game, and to come through in the clutch when his life is on the line, he earned his spot at finale night. No one has taken him through the final end of this game. No one has been his friend for the last half-month. They have all wanted him out, and look who has the veto at the Final Four!
Demetres and Ika talk after the veto. Demetres is upset and Ika tells him it's OK. She really sucked at the competition and knew Kevin would do really good. They go to the HoH room and Ika says it's good that he didn't throw the HoH competition to her.
Ika is trying to reassure Demetres that it's OK. He has won seven competitions... he can't win everything. If she had to choose someone to have her back and fight for her, she would choose him every single time. Demetres feels terrible that he didn't win. Ika doesn't want him to beat himself up.
In the storage room, Kevin is in shock. He can't believe he won. It means so much. Karen comes in and congratulates an emotional Kevin.
Arisa reminds us that the jury will have the final say tomorrow night, and that over the past few weeks, the power has slowly shifted from inside the Odyssey to up in the jury house. Dillon joined the jury this week and BB sent a big bombshell with him. We see the jurors having a vets vs. newbies game of bean bag toss.
Bruno, Neda, and Sindy sit together and Bruno tells us that time in the jury has been great, and they went from three to 6 with the triple last week. They have a lot of info and a lot of thinking to do. Neda says she can't wait to see who is coming through the doors next. Bruno is hoping it will be Ika or Demetres, but suspects it will be Dillon.
We see the car carrying Dillon to the jury house zoom by.
In the house, the HGs are sitting all together in the living room . Neda just wants it to be someone who is chill .... no fights... fun.
They speculate as Dillon comes in saying "The Champ is here!" Neda tells us they all had a weird gut feeling it would be Dillon but they were hoping they were hoping they were wrong. Dillon gives them the recap.... they are all shocked that Kevin won veto and used it on Ika.
Bruno tells us he thinks Kevin wanted Demetres to leave and thought the house would get rid of Ika instead of Demetres, so replacing her with Dillon on the block would guarantee a big player getting out of the house. Neda says that's probably where Kevin was coming from, but it wasn't the right move.
Dillon reveals that he has a note from Big Brother. He tells them that members of the jury have the power to choose this season's BBCAN winner. To help them with their decision, BB has sent them a very special message from the Odyssey. We see a clip of Arisa talking to the HGs and letting them know they can speak directly to the members of the jury. They will each record a 60-second message that will be shown at the jury house. This is the HGs' chance to tell them anything they want and really give them something to think about. This message will be on top of the plea the final two will deliver on finale night.
The jurors discuss the message. Neda is stoke that the HGs will get this chance to explain their game. Bruno thinks it's a game-changer. They will get insight into what the HGs are seeing and understand their moves better.
Demetres begins with "Beloved members of the jury" and goes on to say he won't lie...when he walked into the game he didn't know what he was doing, but he quickly realized he had to use his ability to win competitions to navigate his way through this game. We flip to Karen saying hi and telling the jury she wanted to be the first HoH and thanks to Sindy for helping her do that. Being HoH allowed her to talk to everyone and determine who she could work with and who she couldn't.
Kevin's pitch begins with saying since they all left he has been by himself in this game. The only reason he is still there is because he won the PoV during the triple. He's alone, isolated and targeting. Ika begins with saying she knows she has had a couple things with people but if they look at her game everything she has done has been logical and strategic and she has taken the emotions out of it.
Demetres tells the jury that he knows that a lot of them he's been controlled all this time, but he has made every decision for himself and a lot of those big moves landed big players in the jury house.
Karen tells them that she wanted a power couple ...she found them. Day 1 Ika, and Day two Demetres. Boom. The jury members might think that the couple dragged her along, but spoiler alert! They are there because of Karen. She could have taken Ika out as 8th, and Demetres out as 5th.
Demetres points out that his stats speak for themselves. He's won four HoHs, two PoVs, he's been on the block four times, and after every single time on the block, he won the following HoH and put his enemies on the block.
Kevin tells the jury "guys, I want this more than anything I've wanted in my entire life and I'm working so hard for it.
Ika concludes, telling the jury she hopes they respect her as a player, and not hold any hard feelings toward her because the goal is to crown the best player in this game. Demetres concludes that he thinks he should crowned the BB5 Canada champ. Karen says "that's my game. Thanks guys!" and Kevin says "See you on finale night!"
The jurors discuss whether any of the messages change their opinions. Bruno is skeptical that Demetres is not a lapdog. Dillon and Jackie were expecting a lot more from Kevin. Neda is impressed by Karen's speech and Bruno is interested to hear more. They want to crown the best player for their season.
We see the reaction to the news of the surprise eviction. Ika tells us that Kevin won the veto, and he's obviously going to use it on himself, so he will vote out either Ika or Karen. She tells us that Kevin is obsessed with not looking like he's a bad player. He wants to be a great player who is respected. If there is any chance of him keeping her safe, she has to play on his ego.
Ika tells Kevin she can't leave without trying. Her pitch to him is that a Final Three with Kevin, Ika, Demetres, they are all deserving people who deserve to win. A Final Two of Kevin and Karen is not a good Final Two.
Ika tells us that she has to convince Kevin that it's a weak move to take Karen to the Final Three. He has to fight against Ika and Demetres at the end to prove what a great player he is. Ika presses her point with Kevin and he seems to consider it.
Kevin tells us that Ika deserves to be here. He truly thinks she is one of the best. Her ability to manoeuvre and socialize week by week... she has been in some terrible situations but has found a way to survive. He respects Ika's game more than anyone else in here. Ika points out that she can't beat him in a competition and repeats that she Demetres and Kevin are all deserving.
They hug it out and Kevin says he loves and respect her so much. Ika says she respects him too. After Ika leaves, Kevin says to himself that out of everyone here, she deserves it more than him.
Demetres tells Ika that he doesn't want to be in the house without her. They talk about being a good team.
Ika tells us that Demetres has been so strong for her this entire game. He has been her emotional support and every time she needed him, he was there. She tells Demetres to make sure he gets to the end. His job isn't done.
Ika tells us that right now she needs to be strong for him. If she does leave, she needs him to know that he is so close to the end and he can win this. She wants to give him that extra boost to get him there.
Arisa calls the Final Four HGs to the living room and the gather. Arisa asks them if the special eviction news has sunk in yet.
"It's time to get down to business. Kevin, with the PoV, holds all the power tonight." He stands and announces that he will use the veto to save himself. Since Demetres is HoH, Ika is up for eviction. Kevin has the sole vote. Karen and Ika each plead their case.
Karen stands and addresses Kevin directly. "Kevin Martin, I've made no secrets that I have gunned for you continuously, so I can't be anything other than real and say I wanted to walk amongst the giants not lie with ants and wanted four strong people at the end. As fate would have it, Kevin Martin, you hold my fate now.
Ika stands and faces Kevin saying that the last time she told him to shove something up his butt, he saved her, so.... she's joking, she isn't going to say that. She asks him if she has considered his legacy on this season. She suggests that his legacy will be that he was too scared to fight amongst the best, so he took the easy way out. In order to BE the best, he has to BEAT the best.
Kevin stands to cast the sole vote. Kevin tells Ika she is the baddest bitch to ever step foot in this house. She is one of the best players ever. For those reasons, he has to evict Ika.
Ika says it's OK and she still respects him.
Arisa makes the official statement and Ika says a tearful goodbye to Demetres. She says goodbye saying they are all great players and she will vote for the best person who deserves to win this game. She adds an extra assurance to Kevin that she respects him. She says goodbye to Karen as Ika goes up the stairs, and goes through the door. Demetres is very emotional and goes upstairs to the HoH room to cry.
Arisa welcomes Ika out onto the stage. Ika says "Arisa darling" and Arisa says they both know that a queen deserves a crown. Arisa tells Ika she began the season already a legend, and she is now considered one of the best Big Brother players ever. Ika is surprised.
Arisa asks about Ika's headspace coming in. Ika says she wanted to follow her gut and just take things week by week. She knows what it's like to leave the house with regrets, and she didn't want to do that.
Arisa wants to talk about Demetres. Ika tells her that it's like having your best friend who you know will never never stab you in the back. Arisa says it seemed like a true authentic relationship, and Ika agrees. Arisa asks if there is a chance or is that the end of the fairy tale. Ika says that she would not say it's the end, but she says she has to keep her personal life personal.
Arisa asks Ika about three people left. Ika says that Karen has saved her and Demetres a lot and has played the best game she can play.
She says she respects Kevin. He's a good player, but she doesn't think he's better than her or Demetres. She respects his hustle and his game, he's come a long way, and he deserves to be there. To win the game, Demetres will have to win the final HoH because Kevin will not take him. Ika thinks Demetres has worked hard and deserves to win. He's a great guy and she hopes he wins the game. Arisa thanks Ika and sends her off to jury.
Ika leaves the empty studio, saying goodbye to Arisa. Arisa says what a night, what a season, and it all comes to an end tomorrow. Either Demetres, Kevin, or Karen will win over the jury and win it all! Be here at 7PM Eastern for the two-hour finale which will feature all 16 HGs and a ton of other surprises. Remember... someone is always watching!
