|In a unanimous 10-0 vote, Graig Merritt became the fourth person evicted from Big Brother Canada. Graig joins Risha, Sindy, and Naeha in sequester as they wait for the final houseguest to complete the First Five – the group of houseguests who will compete for a chance to re-enter the house.
“Leaving the house is very emotional. Looking back on how I played the game, I think I competed too much. In the Big Brother house you have to shut down the competition at times but I went full throttle from start to finish,” said Graig in a post-eviction interview. On his reaction to Arisa’s news that he could return to the house, he stated, “Arisa’s news was overwhelming. When she first said it, I wasn’t sure if I wanted back in the house, but after collecting my thoughts I definitely want to get back in there and compete.”
Brittnee’s reign as HOH sent two members of the Chop Shop alliance on the block in the end. Brittnee’s master plan played out seamlessly, first nominating Bobby and Kevin, both pawns in her master plan, and set up the roost that Johnny was her real target, when in reality she had set her sights on Graig. With Graig’s false sense of security solidified, Johnny pulled out a POV win, took Kevin off the block, and Brittnee named Graig Merritt as the replacement nominee.
Moments after Graig’s eviction, the houseguests began airing out dirty laundry in a new HOH competition fighting for the coveted house power, with an additional $5,000 prize. In Sunday’s nomination episode viewers will see who wins HOH and which houseguests they’ll put on the chopping block. Arisa also announced the next #TwistosTwist, giving Canada the chance to vote on next week’s POV at www.BigBrotherCanada.ca. The special Power of Veto will play out one of two ways, depending on how Canada votes, and will see the houseguests either play a “forced veto”, leaving them with no option but to replace a nominee, or a double veto where both nominees will need to be replaced.
Big Brother Canada airs Mondays at 8pm ET/PT, Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT and Sundays at 7pm ET/PT on Global. (Add 5 hours for the UK time).
