‘Big Brother Canada’ review: Is this ‘instant eviction’ the worst twist ever?

Big Brother CanadaAll weekend long, “Big Brother Canada” has relentlessly hyped up this episode as one of the most surprising of the season. Granted, it’s also a little bit easier to do this when you remember that the live feeds have been down all weekend, and save for some information that we learned during a feed leak, everything has been under wraps.

So was this worth the wait? Honestly, not so much. Topaz made the “instant” decision to nominate AJ and Andrew, but the way in which it happened has us honestly pretty angry as a fan. Not only did the show make Topaz make a decision on the nominees right away, but they blocked her from talking to the other houseguests; to make matters worse, they then aired out her dirty laundry for everyone to hear. How is this even an HoH? It’s more like getting screwed over, and you shouldn’t have to worry about that if you’re in a position of power.

Somehow, it got even worse from here, AJ and Andrew did not even get to play in the Veto Competition. This may be the worst twist in the history of the show: AJ went out without even having a shot just for the sake of a shocking twist. That’s not Big Brother. That’s the producers playing puppeteer, which we have been concerned about at times already. The big “shocker” was Alec going against Topaz, and there will be plenty of awkwardness later as a result.

Anyhow, we’ll add some more details as to the rest of the episode a little later. Andrew is the new Head of Household, and he put Topaz (go figure) and Gary on the block.

What did you think about this episode, and are you bummed out to see AJ leave the show like this? If you want to read some more about our concerns over all the twists this season, you can do so over here.
