Big Brother Canada Season 2 Exit Interview | Allison White

We voted her into the house, she didn't do a whole hell of it, but she's sorry. Neda took her out during the seasons first and only Instant Eviction. Here'es what she had to say!

Are you surprised by the house's decision?

No, I am not surprised at all. I spun a tangled web before I left, after getting rid of Arlie, and put my faith in the promises Adel gave me which were not true. And it came down to me losing HOH so when that happened I wasn’t surprised I was the next target for Neda because she never trusted me and I never trusted her.

How has Canada’s influence impacted the house this year?​

Okay, first of all getting in the house was awesome so Canada changed my game completely, they let it happen, they started my game so that was really cool. When they put Andrew and Sabrina on the block that was a huge power shift and I know a lot of people hated the fact that it wasn’t in their hands, it wasn’t the house’s decision, it was Canada’s decision and that was really cool for the fans, but not so cool for me, because those were two people I was aligned with. It’s cool because it shakes up which people have power and makes sure the people who have power all the time don’t, so I think it’s really cool.

When do you think the competition shifted gears? Was there a definitive moment or was it a process? ​​

It was a process but clearly once Arlie revealed he was working with the Sloppy Seconds and not the First Five that was huge and that was a huge shift in power.  

Why did you connect so well with Andrew? 
Would you choose to align yourself with anyone else if given a second chance?

He was the first person that actually made me feel comfortable in the house. Coming in to that house, the snake pit, and having everybody suspicious of me, he was just the first person to come up to me and have a conversation, it felt really comfortable.  I just went from there, he was a really genuine person. It started for me as a game move but quickly turned to this is my friend, this is a person I can trust, and this is a person I want to spend time with.

If I came in to the house the same way, I wouldn’t do anything different. Circumstantially, I think if I came in to the house the same day everybody else did, I would have aligned myself with Jon because of the Newfoundland connection.  Or the underdog side of the house.  

What was your favourite/worst experience/moment in the house?
Getting voted in to the house was definitely the best moment because it allowed me to play the game and it felt really cool to have Canada behind me. It was also the worst moment because I thought I was going to die from anxiety when it happened and I entered that house.

What did you discover about yourself that you didn't know prior to being on the show? ​

I’m actually not as good of a liar as I thought I was. It was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, too. The trust thing was huge. I trust people easily, so having to constantly question people was hard and I don’t know if that will come outside with me or not.

If you can go back to any moment in the house and change your reaction, which moment would that be and why?

OH MY GOD, I’D KEEP ARLIE! And I would have said 200 in that HOH, instead of 350.

You’re a huge fan of Big Brother. Why do you think Canada voted you in over Scott and Nate?
I have no idea. I was the most relaxed and maybe myself.  I wanted to be me and go on the show to play the game.

Do you have any final thoughts?
I’m sorry for letting Canada down…if I did.

Big Brother Canada Season 2 Exit Interview | Arlie Shaban

Well, Arlie is off to Jury, finally. Wanna hear what he had to say? Read below for an awesome QA with BBCAN2's first Jury Member.

Are you surprised by the house's decision?

I’m not shocked by the house’s decision, I’m more shocked by Jon being the one to do it. I feel like he has a lot harder road now without me in the house, I just thought from a logical game point of view he wouldn’t have been the one to do it this week. I’m not surprised at all by the house, Neda has a lot of sway in the house so I could see her doing this to me I just couldn’t see her tricking Jon in to doing this for me.
How has Canada’s influence impacted the house this year?​

Canada’s influence has greatly impacted the house. It impacted my game a lot too because it had some direction. I’ve always been playing for the fans and I wanted to give the fans what they want so it kind of steered me in a direction I wanted to go in either way, but it also just changed the whole dynamic of the game, Canada having so much influence, Canada having so much say, being HOH, potentially having a seat in jury, it adds a whole new element that’s hard to work in to the game on the fly. My whole game plan was for the fans. If I wanted to go further in this game or if I wanted to have less of a target on myself, I would have just given myself less of a target. I would have gone in to the house 30lbs heavier, I would have just sat in a corner and not talked, and it wouldn’t have been interesting for the fans but it would have been easier to get further with that strategy. I wanted to be exciting, I wanted to do big things, I wanted to sabotage parts of the house – I did that stuff for the fans.
When do you think the competition shifted gears? Was there a definitive moment or was it a process? ​​

It definitely shifted gears when I exposed myself from sabotaging the First Five, when I had my coming out party and let everyone know that’s what I was doing, that’s when the heat really came on for me. If I hadn’t done that, there wouldn’t have been as much heat on me but that’s when I changed gears in the game. My whole game plan was exposed by that because I went in to the house like an unintelligent pushover. That was my strategy for the first half of the game and then as soon as I exposed myself and everyone could see that I wasn’t an unintelligent pushover, I had to step it in to the next gear. I had to change everything about my game, which I expected going in, that I would have to do that, I just never got a shot to start winning my way to the end. That was a strategy. You go in, do something crazy, expose yourself for not being what you said you were going to be and then you win your way to the end and I got blindsided out of the game.
Why did you connect so well with Adel? 
Would you choose to align yourself with anyone else if given a second chance?

Well, me and Adel just clicked from day one. There’s something about Adel, as you can all tell, that he just clicks with a lot of different people. He has a great personality and a great vibe to him and me and him just clicked extra strong and it wasn’t to do with game, even though it helps the game to have personal connections with people, it wasn’t fake on my end like it was for me with most other people. With Adel, it was just natural. We have the same sense of humour, we kind of feed off of each other, and we just had a lot in common especially with how our minds worked so I just look at him like a brother.
In all honesty, I would have just aligned myself with Neda. I didn’t realize her game plan until a couple week in to the house and there was already so much separation between us, she already had Jon so close so I knew it was almost impossible to get in with her. I always knew that I was going to get her out before she had the chance to get me out and the fact that she got me out and the way she did it, hats off to her. I would have aligned myself with her if I could have.

What was your favourite/worst experience/moment in the house?

My best moment was getting my mission from Marsha, successfully completing i , and getting the reward that came with it. All three of those things combined in to one would be my best moment in the house. It was just a dream of mine to get a secret mission in the Big Brother house and ever since Big Brother Canada came around I just dreamed to get one from Marsha and the fact that I got one – especially a tough one that made me portray myself that way in the house – passing that and getting a sweet reward on slop was the best.
The worst moment was definitely when Jon back-doored me. That POV ceremony hit  me like a ton of brick, I felt it in the air. That was just the worst moment ever, I didn’t think Jon would do it in a million years because I didn’t think it would help his game.
What did you discover about yourself that you didn't know prior to being on the show? ​

 I don’t know if I discovered anything. I honestly think that I was prepared for every aspect of the show. A lot of people went in there and were surprised by different things the show was doing to them physically and mentally. I went in, I was prepared for it, and nothing surprised me so I don’t feel like I learned anything about myself. Maybe that I have good control over my mind and how I react to situations.

If you can go back to any moment in the house and change your reaction, which moment would that be and why?
I would change how I reacted to slop the second time around. I was still looking at it as a joke and I was letting it affect my body physically because I didn’t think I was in trouble in the game. I would have just consumed more slop so I could have competed better in the Veto that took me out of the game.

You’re a huge fan of Big Brother. How did you prepare to compete on the show?​

I went on the internet and researched every strategy by the great Big Brother players. I prepared physically a lot by working out,
going for runs, taking ice baths, going tanning because I didn’t want to be the whitest guy on the show. I also started doing brain teasers and puzzles to get my mind working different ways. I was just prepared for every aspect of it. I was just studying everything could possibly get my hands on.
Do you have any final thoughts?

I feel like my biggest downfall in the game was feeling comfortable. You should never feel comfortable in the game, and I knew that going in. If you feel comfortable, that’s probably the time something bad is going to happen, but I guess that’s what feeling comfortable is. That, and for any future players, don’t take slop as a joke, you never know when you’re going to compete. Eat more slop.

Big Brother Canada Season 2 Exit Interview | Sarah Miller

Today I was fortunate enough to have a chance to talk with Sarah, 6th Evicted houseguest of Big Brother Canada Season 2.

Mumsie was definitely a fan favourite, she was entertaining to watch, and Kenny's closest ally in the house. Personally I'm extremely disappointed to see either of the go, the house will be far less entertaining without you.

On the upside, I'm glad Sarah got out before Jury so she can spend time with her kids, and I'm glad, for her sake, that Kenny left behind her to be a solid support system. It's important to have, and these two will absolutely help each other get through this outside of the game.

Heyyyyy Mumsie! Awww I'm so sad!

Ahhhh! I LOVE that you called me that! I am too!

What would you say had the largest impact on your demise in the game? Flipping on the girls to evict Paul, or Canada winning HoH and targeting the First5?

Ummm, I think it was a combination of those 2, but mostly the fact that I wouldn't turn on Kenny when Jon and Arlie made it clear that they were going after him.

Explain to me a little bit more about what was going through your mind as you heard / watched Ika in that backyard, and listened in on her while she destroyed peoples letters from home. You seemed to be the only person, at the time, who understood her decision, and also the person who wanted it the most.

Yeah I wanted that so bad, when I saw that that letter was my little sisters letter, I just... I would have given ANYTHING to get my hands on that letter, I really needed that push from home, but you know at the same time, I'm able to think logically, and the fact that in Ika's position, it just didn't make sense. The way she went through each person, and took her time trying to figure out, "is this REALLY gonna make a difference?" and in the end, the answer's no. It really wouldn't have made a difference. It might have made a nice impact on the house, but she still would have been out the door.

Do you think at this point that Arlie really has a chance to win the game, or do you think that the rest of the house is smart enough to take him out sooner rather than later, and he's just sort of a smokescreen for them right now?

I hope that he is smart enough to worm himself out of this situation, and I believe with everything I'm hearing that he is. So I truly believe that he has a great chance of making it to the end.

Well if it helps, your little sister has been on Twitter, she's been a huge support for you, and she's awesome, so there's that.

Awwww! I LOVE HER!

That's all the time we had this morning for the Mumsie with the Onesie, but I will do everything in my power to get these two on BBCanadaInsider LIVE! together for an awesome 1 hour fan QA. Stay tuned for details on that!

Big Brother Canada Season 2 Exit Interview | Kenny Brain

First of all.. *Clears Throat*... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WHYYYYYYY?! I'm so upset at this whole thing! 
Kenny was my absolute favourite player in that house, no question, regardless of other people's opinions. Did he say things he shouldn't have said? Welcome to Big Brother. I don't know about you, but I'm here for the entertainment, and two solid sources of entertainment went home last night. I'm not okay with that. #FearTheBeard.
Kenny was an insperation to a lot of people, and personally I just think he's a great guy. I can't wait to meet him, and just chill. I couldn't be more upset that he left, and left before Jury nonetheless. 
Either way, here is my brief eviction interview with Kenny Brain:


- Hahahaha, that's AWESOME!! Hey Treasure!

First of all I am in MOURNING Still! I'm having a hard time with this.

- Imagine how I feel! Haha

Coming out to the house, you told everyone exactly what your strategy was as well, to be able to flirt with the females. Do you think this could have worked more in your favour had you left the strategy part out, and just said maybe, you were too nervous to tell them based on how they may react?

Actually, no. I feel like at that point it had no bearing whatsoever, I know the lines were so clearly drawn in the sand at this point, and the sides were clearly visible, so that factor of me, and my life and my game, held no bearing whatsoever in the game. So that's why it was the opportune moment to tell everybody about it, without it effecting my game.

So if anything, I think being completely open and honest with them, sort of took away the bitterness of them coming up against me, and I felt that COULD possibly help me, but lying in the same breath as me being honest, I feel wouldn't have.

Now in the moment between both of the evictions, Allison came up to you in the storage room and said; "You have to win. They're going to backdoor you. They have a way to stop you from playing in Veto, do you hear me? Do not tell the girls, they need to know that I'm with the other side for now. I have you, okay?" How did you feel when she said that? Was that something you expected to hear from her, or did you think she was fully on the other side?

Honestly, no. I never, ever thought that Allison was fully on the other side, I feel like she was doing what she had to do to stay in the game, and that was flipping to the other side. I hold no grudges whatsoever, it was a smart move on her part.

I feel like her telling me about all this, was her plea to PLEASE do your best to stay in this game, cause I wanna work with you! And if that was a little off the mark, it was probably just her buttering me up for me potentially being in the Jury, so I'd have a nice taste in my mouth for Allison if I was gonna be there in Jury, for voting for her. But in the moment I just felt gratitude towards her, honestly, because I know my biggest ally in the game was just voted out, you know, obviously I wasn't taking it very well (laughs) so it was nice to kind of have an outreach from Allison.

Now I don't know if you know this, but what she was referring to is Adel's power. He had the power to remove anyone randomly selected from playing in the PoV competition, and replace them with anyone else (Kenny: "WOW!), so there was really no way for you to NOT get backdoored. Knowing that, how do you feel about the situation now?

Ha! Well, actually... I'm just finding this out right now.. Sooo.... um... yeah (laughs). Well now I feel a little bit better, because I thought the pick was my only saving grace, and the fact that when I never got picked, I was like; "Are you KIDDING me?!" It was my only hope. I knew I was going home when I never got picked, but now I kind of feel a little bit better, so thanks for that! (laughs)

HAHA! Well, I'm glad I could make you feel a little bit better!

Meeee too, actually! (Laughs)

That's all the time I had for today. If you wanna listen to a podcast version of this interview, one will be up later today. I wish both Kenny & Sarah all the best, and big shout out to his friends and family this year who have been awesome support for Kenny, and a lot of fun to chat with!

How Adel's Not So Secret Power Works

There seems to be a lot of confusion online as to how Adel's Veto Card works, so I'm gonna break it down for you with some lovely help from Arisa Cox, she's my boo.

Adel won this power when Canada voted him as being the most buzzworthy HG. Since then, it's never been 100% clear how it works.

How Adel's Power Works:
  • Adel is able to use his Power to switch out a player in the PoV competition.
  • He is NOT allowed to remove a Nominee or the HoH. He can only switch out one of the 3 randomly selected players.
  • For example. If Kenny is chosen to play in the PoV competition, and the plan is to backdoor him, Adel could swap him out with another person who he knows won't help Kenny, and thus prevent him from winning the PoV and saving himself
  • Adel does NOT have to be the replacement player. Adel could take Kenny out of the game, and replace him with Jon, Neda, Arlie, whoever. It does NOT have to be himself.
  • It's only good until final 6, at which point there's no one left to switch out. Everyone plays.

Hopefully this clears things up a little bit. Basically to dumb it down. He can use it to remove a randomly selected player in the PoV competition, and replace them with anyone else who isn't playing in that competition.  He only has a limited amount of time to use it. It is not good all season.

The image I used in this article is not my own. I googled it, and it was originally posted by Big Brother Network. They are awesome, please feel free to check them out.
