The French Connection Says “Au Revoir” as Dre and William Disembark the BBCAN Odyssey

The French Connection: Montreal, Quebec’s’s Dre Gwenaelle and William Laprise Desbiens from Trois-Riviere, Quebec were victims of the infamous BBCAN “triple eviction.” An already hectic week in the house lead into the wildest eviction night of the season. The houseguests had barely said their goodbyes to Jackie before news of the triple eviction sent the BBCAN Odyssey into the stratosphere.

“We are in shock right now,” said William with Dre seated next to him.

“We are! I honestly feel like I’m going to be able to go back into the house,” Dre said. “I don’t know how this happened to us.”

Q: Was speaking to each other in French ever strategy? (BOTH)

A: Definitely! We definitely used speaking French as strategy, we could talk about whatever we wanted. (D) Definitely! it was the most perfect thing as we could talk about the game right in front of the house guests, you could look right at them and say “I’m coming after you.” (W)

Q: Did you ever consider NOT using either of your POV’s as Ika “ordered?” (William)

A: At one point it came to my mind, but I told myself, “no, don’t do that…I won this secret power of veto and want to use it.” I also got to use it in secret so there was no reason not to use it. I wanted to put it into play.

Q: Why do you think Ika was so upset with you last night? (Dre)

A: She has no reason to be upset at me, I don’t get it. I don’t know, I don’t understand it, she was the one who did anything. Maybe it was part of her strategy to scare people. Dillon must have snitched out everything to everyone and in the end she (Ika) must have decided to trust Dillon.

Q: Out of the remaining 5 house guests, is there anyone who you wouldn’t vote for to win BBCAN5? (BOTH)

A: Dillon, I didn’t like his game, not at all. (W) There is no one that I wouldn’t want to vote for, but there are some far more deserving than others. Karen to me is not as deserving. (D)

High resolution official images from last night’s episode of Big Brother Canada:


Following Jackie’s eviction, the BBCAN Odyssey was rocked by the news that the evening’s events were far from over with the dreaded triple eviction set for that night. During the HOH competition, one of the house’s biggest targets, Demetres, eagerly took the title and nominated Kevin, Dre, and William for eviction, while simultaneously keeping the house’s second biggest target, his Queen, Ika, safe for another week. The POV competition, “Off the Block,” may have looked like fun and games to the houseguests, but their lives in the house depended on it. Having been evicted in Big Brother Canada’s first ever triple eviction in Season 3, BBCAN vet Kevin was determined not to let history repeat itself and savagely beat out to the competition to win the POV and remove himself from the block. Having to name a replacement, HOH Demetres put Dillon up in Kevin’s place, next to Dre and William.  The house unanimously voted to keep Dillon safe, leaving Dre and William to join Jackie on the road to the Big Brother Canada jury house.

While the BBCAN Odyssey is now three passengers lighter the remaining crew must continue their journey into the unknown, beginning with the next Head of Household competition. Tune in to see who is safe and who is in danger on Monday’s episode of Big Brother Canada at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. And for the next week, fans can go to to watch clips and cast their vote for the moments they want to win in this year’s BBCAN Awards, airing May 15th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
