Sonic Sindy Backdoors Neda Kalantar in Part 2 of the Double Eviction

Vancouver, British Columbia’s Neda Kalantar’s dramatic eviction was the fallout of Arisa’s shocking news, and marked the shattering end to a very shifty week. Ika and Neda’s festering frien-emy relationship came to a head with each trying to convince fellow alliance member, Sindy, to put the other one on the block as her replacement nominee. The backdoor scenario left Neda reeling and in attempt to save her life in the house, she exposed her alliance with Ika to get the target off her own back. Unable to keep Sindy in her corner, and with her nomination immunity now defunct, Neda was named the replacement nominee and in a vote of 7 to 1, she became the first member of Big Brother Canada’s Season 5 jury.

Q.If you had the choice to accept or deny the “until jury safety,” what would you have chosen?

A. I would have felt like such a jerk to deny a power that Canada voted to give to me, but…deny, deny, deny! I wouldn’t have wanted that target on my back, it was such a huge target and it gave everyone an exact time frame of when to target me. I think I could have made it to this point of making jury on my own without the power which ended up being a huge detriment. I totally would have denied the power.

Q.4/6 evicted are returnees. Why couldn’t the vets work together, to weed out the new players first?

A. In a perfect world, that might happen, but the 8 vets they put together were a crazy group of personalities and it was a matter of knowing the vets game and not knowing the newbies game. In the end we all wanted to target the biggest threats, the biggest targets, which were each other.

Q.Would you describe your gameplay this time as more Ravenclaw or Slytherin, and why?

A. Slytherin obviously! The first time in season 2 was a mix of Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff, but this time I was full on Slytherin.

Toronto, Canada –This week Big Brother Canada took the drama into the stratosphere, shocking the houseguests with a double eviction. Eviction night began with the houseguests deciding to send Toronto, Ontario’s Emily Hawkin home, in a vote of 8 to 1. After Emily’s departure, the BBCAN Odyssey hit some major turbulence as host Arisa Cox announced to the houseguests that their night was far from over and they were about to embark on the season’s first double eviction.

When William won last week’s Head of Household competition, it was his mission to make a dent in the powerful alliance that had been ruling the house, taking out his allies each week. Working with his “French Connection” alliance-mate Dre Gwenaelle to select nominees, they settled on putting big time boxer, Dillon Carman and his showmance partner Emily on the block together – again. Ultimately, Emily paid the price, and was evicted from the BBCAN Odyssey.

“Dillon is going to be crying all the time now that I’m out of the house,” said Emily Hawkin. “He’s such a cool dude and I really hope that he can win, but if he doesn’t, I hope that Bruno does.”

After Emily’s eviction, the BBCAN Odyssey went into warp-speed as another HOH competition immediately began. Sindy succeeded (with an “S”) to take the title and nominated Dillon and Jackie for eviction. The “Wired for Veto” POV competition was a tight race to the finish, but Jackie was the first to buzz in, seizing the power. Jackie chose to use the POV on herself, leaving Sindy to choose a replacement nominee. Following the POV, a tense confrontation exploded between two of “The Six’s” alliance members.

“I lasted an hour without my immunity,” said Neda Kalantar after her eviction. “Ika is so backstabbing and I tried to tell my alliance about her but I just couldn’t get through to them. The houseguests voted the wrong person out.”

With the Odyssey two passengers lighter, and Jury House filling new vacancies, this week’s Head of Household competition will be one to watch. Find out who takes the title on Monday’s episode of Big Brother Canada at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
