  1. We pick up after the nomination ceremony. Kaela says she nominated Maddy because she’s a strategic threat, but also because she found out Maddy was trying to mastermind a plan to force Kaela to put Derek on the block. Maddy says being nominated only confirms she’s got an uphill battle. She’s not surprised but it’s overwhelming. She can only take it one day at a time. Paras says she feels kind of stupid because she just saved Kaela a day ago and now she’s on the block. She knew she was going to be on the block sooner or later. Kaela tells Paras she just didn’t want to nominate Will a second time. Paras feels betrayed by Maddy. They agree to talk later. Maddy and Kaela are in the WA and they agree to sleep on it and talk tomorrow. Kaela says she was worried Maddy would use veto if she wasn’t on the block. Maddy asks if she’s worried if Will would use it and Kaela hesitates and again they agree to talk later. Will tells Paras she has to gun for that veto. Paras says if Maddy wins then she’s going home. Maddy comes out and Paras says this fight is far from over. Maddy says the three of them had a huge blowout today and she feels terrible. Maddy begins to cry and says she never manipulated Paras. Paras says she was so hurt. Paras gives Maddy a hug. Paras says she has said plenty of things and screwed over plenty of people and she just couldn’t do it to Maddy. Maddy tells us when you’re in the house for so long it’s hard to separate game from the personal relationships you make. Derek and Kaela are talking and they say Maddy cannot win because she’s the best person to leave the house this week. Will reminds of the deal he made with Derek and Kaela and he wants to go and touch base and reassure them. Derek tells Will he feels good with him. Derek reminds Will no one knows they made a deal with him. Kaela says they just need to win veto and her, Derek, Will, and Paras can move on to next week. Derek leaves the room and Kaela says this deal could go further. Will looks at her and Kaela says if she makes final three with Derek she can’t beat him. So she can team up with a fellow East Coaster. She knows she can beat Will. Paras and Will are in the storage room talking and Paras says they cannot make any deals. Will says he told them he wouldn’t use veto and Paras says he’s going to have to. Paras says they have to get Derek out. Paras says she’s not going to promise them anything. Paras tells us no matter what deal he made he HAS to use the veto. Kaela is in the HOH room talking to herself. She says POV tomorrow. How did I not go home? She hopes to see her mom soon with the $100k. She knows she can do it. She keeps telling people Derek can win, but she can win. She’s willing to do whatever it takes. Whatever it takes, she’s going to win. Derek comes in and she says she’s admiring her pics. It’s time for the veto competition. They go outside and there are five giant voodoo dolls in the backyard. Maddy says that’s appropriate because you can be stabbed in the back or the heart at any moment. The voodoo dolls have pins in them that are different colors. They will climb on their voodoo doll and periodically they will be a shown a color and they will have an allotted amount of time to remove a pin of that color. If they fall or don’t get the pin out before time runs out they are eliminated. The last one standing will win the POV. Maddy says for this veto there are multiple pegs with the same color so you have to plan ahead. Derek says it’s so important Will does not win veto. Kaela says being short may be a disadvantage in this comp, but she’s not going to let that get her down. She’s going to get the higher ones now because she knows she won’t be able to get them later. Will tells us his girl Paras is on the block and he’d love to win veto and take her down. But it might not be in his best interest to go against the deal he made with Daela. It’s been almost 23 minutes and it’s time to pull the striped peg. Maddy says that seems to be the one that has been anchoring everyone so it’s about to get a lot harder. Paras is struggling and she took the wrong peg out because she couldn’t reach the correct one. She finally gets the correct one. They now have to pull a blue peg and that’s the only one Paras and Maddy can hang on to. Maddy drops and tells everyone good job and she tells Paras she’s got this. Kaela says Maddy dropping is a great thing. Paras is still standing but she has no pegs to hold onto. They now have to pull an orange peg. Derek is struggling to hold on. Paras is mad at herself because she took the wrong orange one out earlier and now she can’t reach the other one. Paras falls. She says now all she can do is hope Will wins. Derek says he has to pull the orange peg and time is running out and Will is still in the competition and if he wins and uses veto, Derek goes on the block and is headed home.

Adam and Kelly are on their feet for Rayshun during the performance and Alicia and Blake join as he finishes. The crowd is going crazy. Carson turns it over to Adam and the crowd is still screaming. Adam says last week this guy was in the bottom two and tonight he is number one! And that’s the first time in the history of the show that all four coaches were on their feet before he even finished the song. We’re going to continue with Britton Buchanan from Team Alicia.

  4. Arisa tells us it’s time for a triple eviction! We’ll take a look at what went down after the POV ceremony. Ali says she feels so stupid. She put so much effort into saving Johnny last week and she is done with Johnny. Paras tells us with Ali and Kaela on the block it’s tough to say who she wants to go home. Paras says she singlehandedly decides who stays this week and that’s awesome. Ali says she knows she 100% has Olivia because she would never go against her and she’s pretty sure she has Will. Ali goes to talk to Maddy. Ali tells her she knows they haven’t always been on the same page. Maddy tells us she sees the irony in Ali having to grovel to her for her vote. Maddy tells her that Ali has been tossing her name around a lot and now she needs Maddy to help her and that’s hard to commit to. Ali says she doesn’t desperately need Maddy and Maddy agrees and says but she needs people. Ali says well she can do what she wants to do and she won’t pester her about it. Olivia is talking to herself and she says she ate something bad today. Olivia says she wants a private room even though she’s only sharing with Ali. Olivia says she doesn’t want to go to final two with Ali because she’ll just take credit for everything Olivia did. Liv says even though she’s insecure because she hasn’t won anything. Liv wants to call her out for her attitude. Kaela says Will’s vote will be hard to get but she needs to convince him if Ali stays Johnny will team up with her and Olivia and go after Will. Kaela makes her pitch to Will and she says she wants Ali and Johnny gone in the triple eviction. Will says after Kaela went back on her word he doesn’t think he can trust her because he was so close to going home. Kaela says but she can promise him he will not be going home in a triple eviction. Kaela says she was worried she was going home, but Will might be buying what she’s selling. Will goes to talk to Paras and Maddy and tells them their conversation. Paras says Kaela is just pitching that because her back is up against the wall and she doesn’t know if they should trust her. Will tells us he has some thinking to do and then he would have to get Maddy and Paras on board. He leaves and Paras tells Maddy she doesn’t trust Kaela but this might be the move to make. Kaela and Derek are talking and Kaela tells him he can win this. Derek says they can. Kaela says she had a really good talk with Will. Derek says this is our game to lose. This is our house. Kaela says it’s always been their house. The first vote is coming right up but before we get to it Ali and Kaela are working hard to stay and they are pulling all the stops out. Paras and Derek are talking and Paras is saying if she keeps Kaela then Derek needs to have her back. Johnny interrupts and says Derek has been talking about Paras and the other side all week. Derek wants Johnny to leave so he can rebuild some trust and he doesn’t want Johnny to throw him under the bus. Derek calls Johnny out for lying to the entire house and blowing his game up and that’s why he isn’t good with everyone anymore. Derek again asks Johnny to leave so he can finish his conversation with Paras. Johnny says he will leave because he chooses to leave. Johnny tells us if Kaela stays then his HOH was a waste and he’s going to do everything he can to blow up Daela’s game. Kaela is talking to Maddy, Paras, and Will and Johnny is outside listening. Kaela is saying if Ali stays then Johnny is going to work with Ali and Olivia and put up Will, Maddy, and Paras on the block. Johnny interrupts and says it’s a lie and he wants to know if they want a house conversation. Kaela says ok. Johnny goes to grab Olivia and Paras and Derek comes in as well and Johnny is calling Daela are lying through their teeth to keep Kaela safe. Ali tells Kaela not to guarantee anything about what she would do because Kaela doesn’t know what Ali would do. This ensues into a fight with Ali yelling. Kaela says all she can say is next week Johnny and Olivia are gone and Olivia says if you can pull it off. Ali makes a final pitch about everyone trusting their gut on who they can trust moving forward. Arisa greets the houseguests and she’s giving them a moment to plead their case. Kaela says if they think she can keep them one more week or longer please keep her here and she promises them she will Johnny out the door. Ali says HG, desperate attempts on a bed of lies mean nothing. She brings up Kaela telling Will to take the phone call with his son and promising not to put him but then doing it anyway. Ali says it was her and Liv’s vote to keep him safe and actions speak louder than words. Time to vote! Derek votes to evict Alejandra. Olivia votes to evict Kaela. Maddy votes to evict Alejandra. Paras votes to evict Alejandra. Will votes to evict Alejandra. By a vote of 4-1, Alejandra has been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. As Alejandra leaves Olivia says you better hope like heck I don’t win this HOH. Alejandra says as she leaves that Derek and Kaela’s word mean nothing and they will not get her jury vote. Arisa says Ali was the first on the block and then went far and what an explosive exit. Ali says freaking Johnny! Arisa asks about her journey and strategy. Ali says her plan was to come in and find one person to trust and she loved that she worked with Olivia and she’s rooting for her. Time to let the HG know about the triple eviction. Two more will be leaving the house and more details are coming up. Arisa directs them all to go to the backyard! It’s time to find a new HOH! This is called Name that Speech. Arisa is going to ask a question and the HG have to identify who said it. If they are correct they stay in the game. At an eviction ceremony who said they lost 20 pounds but gained 15 new best friends? Ryan was the answer and they are all correct. At a veto ceremony who said they gave them meals filled with love and held them in their arms with big bear hugs. Answer is Andrew they are all correct. At a veto ceremony who said I can assure you we could be blood brothers. Answer is Merron and Derek is the only one who got it right and he is the new HOH. They all need to head back inside right now. Derek wants to talk to Will. Olivia tells Johnny it sucks how the people who play the worst game are always safe. Derek must now nominate 3 of his fellow HG for eviction and 2 will be heading to jury. Derek is nominating Johnny, Olivia, and Maddy. When we come back it will be the fight for the POV. Derek does not play in the POV. They have to find the planks with the name of a previous HOH who also won POV. The first HG to place all their planks, lower their drawbridge, and hit their button will win POV. Kaela won the POV. When we come back we’ll have the POV ceremony that will shape the rest of the season. Time to find out if Kaela will use the POV. Kaela has decided not to use the POV. Maddy says it’s a running joke how grateful she is to be here and she’d love to stay. Olivia gives mad respect and to the floaters she hopes they know what they just did because they are going to get steam rolled. Johnny gives respect and he tells them they need to fight and get dirty. Time to vote! They are voting for the person they want to save! Kaela votes to save Maddy. Paras votes to save Maddy. Will votes to save Maddy With a vote of 3-0, Maddy is safe and staying in the game. Johnny and Olivia have been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. Johnny says it’s a good thing they got rid of them because they would have beaten them in the end! Arisa asks them if they thought they’d be sitting there. Johnny says as soon as he seen Derek won yes. Olivia says she dropped the ball on that HOH. Arisa asks about their approach to the week and Johnny says people already seen him as a threat so he figured he had to go out guns playing. Arisa asks them about the showmance. Arisa says there is a trio who haven’t won anything and a showmance. Johnny says great strategy on their part, huh? Olivia says they think they can win out and it won’t happen. Arisa says Johnny was after the showmance for so long and he put them on the block and they are both still there. Johnny says it’s sickening. He says he wants to respect the game, but it’s so hard. Arisa asks who’s winning the game and Olivia says Derek. Johnny says Kaela over Derek. He says Derek fits the mold of a winner of the game, but Kaela has done more than he has. Arisa congratulates the final five on surviving the triple eviction.
  5. We pick up after the nomination ceremony. Johnny says he just nominated Kaela and Derek and he feels AMAZING! His target is Derek because he put him up last week and he’s stronger in every area. Derek says this was the one thing he and Kaela didn’t want to happen. Kaela says it sucks they are on the block together but she is going to do whatever it takes to stay in the game. Paras says Kaela, you came after me this week? Well now you’re on the block and I’m going to have a fun week. Johnny is talking to Kaela and Derek in the kitchen and they are talking about how it’s not personal it’s part of the game and it’s not fun being on the block. Johnny tells us yeah, it sucks for you guys but I’m having fun. Paras is in the red rose room venting about Kaela and Olivia comes in with Johnny right behind. They thank Johnny and he says he was ready to put them up. Alejandra came in and she says his speeches are so fun. They talk about Johnny saying let the showmance showdown begin. Johnny says he now needs to talk to everyone and make sure they’ll keep his nominations the same. He doesn’t really trust anyone in the house but he has the most trust with Will and he could help him with the other side of the house. Will says he’d rather send Derek home. Will is hoping he gets to play in the veto. Johnny goes into the HOH room and Olivia is in there. Johnny says he trusts Liv more than Ali and he wants to pick her brain. Liv says if she wins the veto she would keep nominations the same. Liv says worse case scenario is Derek wins and takes himself down. Derek and Kaela are in the red rose room and Kaela says since Johnny won HOH none of them have been talking to her. Derek says it doesn’t make sense for Johnny not to take the opportunity to make final five. Kaela doesn’t see Johnny making it to the end unless he wins every HOH and POV he can. Kaela says one of them has to win veto. Johnny is heading into the HOH room and Kaela is in there. She wants to put a bug in Johnny’s ear and let him know where she stands so maybe he’ll save her. Johnny says if Derek wins veto and Kaela says I know I’m going home. Kaela says she has no one in this game, she has Derek but now it’s come to this. Johnny says he’d rather Kaela stay than Derek. Kaela says she is not here to play for someone she is here to play herself. She says she will do whatever it takes to get herself further in the game. She tells us it’s not a great spot but if it comes to her and Derek she is going to pick herself 100% of the time. We have a digital set up for the veto competition. They will be “downloading” some of the iconic moments from this season. In each round, they will be shown a series of images and asked a question. They will have to find the corresponding images to answer the question. The last HG in each round will be eliminated. The last one standing will win the POV and a cash prize of $5,000. Maddy says it’s been 50 days in the house and she hasn’t won anything, but mark her words! Today she is going to get this. Derek says they are in serious trouble and one of them has to come off the block to survive. Johnny says if Kaela wins, it’s not the worst thing, but if Derek wins, that’s no good. The first round they have to bring back photos of competitions that were won by females. Johnny is the first to finish and he is off to the next round. Derek is second. Kaela has one wrong. Kaela says she doesn’t know what she’s missing. She’s having a brain freeze and this is not good. She’s fighting for this veto for herself because her life is on the line. Alejandra locks in and is correct in third. Paras is incorrect also. Maddy locks in and is correct in fifth place. Kaela is finally figured out what she did wrong and she locks in again and she is correct. Paras has been eliminated. They need to bring back photos of competitions that Hamza competed in. Maddy says she is a Big Brother superfan and she has been studying since day one. She says this is an easy question. She is the first to lock in and she is correct. Johnny locks in behind her and is correct. The other three are looking for their last photos. Derek is correct and Ali locks in right behind. Kaela has been eliminated. Kaela says Derek has been her rock, but he can NOT win. As much as it sucks her best chance to stay is sitting next to Derek. Ali is in front of her large computer pretending to type in questions. She says she needs internet access right now. Is her family ok? Is Trump still president? Did Khloe have her baby? They need to bring back photos of HOH competitions that were played on odd numbered days. Alejandra locks in first and is wrong. Maddy locks in and she is correct. Johnny locks in and he is correct. Derek locks in and is incorrect. Ali cannot figure out what she is doing wrong. Derek makes it back and he is correct. Alejandra has been eliminated. For the next round, they need to bring back photos of competitions Erica did NOT compete in. Johnny says Erica was truly this season’s comp beast. Maddy says she is not only killing this competition but she is lapping these guys. Maddy says they thought she wasn’t a threat but here she is and she is taking this one. Johnny and Derek are both looking at the photo field and it’s going to be a tight race for the last spot. Johnny says his mission this week is to get pretty boy out of here. Johnny thinks he has the last photo and Derek is freaking out. Johnny runs back and locks in and he is incorrect. Derek thinks he has it. He runs back and locks in and he is correct. Johnny has been eliminated. Johnny says all he can think is Maddy needs to win her first competition in this very moment. Final round, Maddy vs Derek. They have to bring back photos of a nominee competing in a veto competition. Maddy says this is the easiest one so far. Both HG have two photos this time. Derek says Maddy has been killing this competition. He’s going to grab whatever she grabs and outrun her the rest of the game. It’s down to the last photo and Derek is fighting for his life. It’s all or nothing right now…Maddy get out of the way. Derek grabs a photo and runs back. He locks in and is correct and wins the POV and the $5,000. He says he feels incredible! Derek says Johnny put him on slop and put him on the block next to his girl. See it, believe it, achieve it! Kaela says Derek good for you. But it stinks for her. She is not going to roll over this week. Derek goes to celebrate in the catacombs. He’s pumping himself up and says that’s how you fight Canada! Maddy and Johnny are talking and Maddy apologizes and says this is so bad. Johnny says this wasn’t ideal. He tells us Derek winning POV was a disaster for him. Now he has to either put up one from the trio or one from the duo. This was not good for his game. Kaela say Derek winning was horrible for her game. She says her best case scenario is for one of the trio to go on the block. She’s pitching to Olivia and Alejandra and says she wants the floaters out and she wants Johnny out. She says it would be good for them to keep to her. Ali says Kaela is desperate to save herself and they could help her. If they help her now, then she could be loyal to them later. Alejandra and Olivia are talking in the red rose room and they are thinking about keeping her and Derek in the game. They are trying to figure out who to target to get put up. Ali says if they save them, then they won’t put them up. Ali says it’s almost counterproductive because the reason they kept him was to take the shot at Daela. Ali says Maddy is really good with mental comps because she studies her ass off. Ali says they can’t let Johnny onto the fact they are maybe keeping Kaela until after he’s made the move. But then they have lost him after that. Paras and Maddy are talking about who should be put up between Liv and Ali and they are think he should put up Liv. Paras says they kept him so he could choose a side but he’s still playing both sides. Maddy says she feels good about their relationship with Johnny but he needs to put up Liv as an act of faith. Johnny is talking to Maddy, Will, and Paras and they are feeling each other out. Johnny feels like Liv is in an interesting position and Maddy says she feels safe and Johnny disagrees. Johnny says he might put up Ali and Maddy says why not Liv? Johnny asks what’s the difference. Maddy says there isn’t really and Johnny says he hopes they don’t want him to not be cool with her because they are cool with everyone. Johnny says Maddy thinks she’s some sort of mastermind and it’s annoying. Johnny is going to do what he wants and what’s best for his game. Johnny invited Will to the Hasbro house party and they are playing Operation. Olivia and Johnny are talking and Johnny wants to know what she thinks about a nominee. Liv says maybe Maddy or Paras. Johnny says if he does that he risks them voting out Maddy or Paras and he can’t do that. Johnny says it comes down to her or Ali. Johnny thinks Ali might take it a little better. Liv says if it comes down to her or Ali, she’s going to push for Ali. Johnny thinks Ali would have voted to keep Ali and Liv won’t say anything. She says she’s hesitant to say anything. Alejandra goes to talk to Johnny in the HOH and she says she wants to have a candid conversation. She wants to know if her, Liv, and Johnny are working together in this game and he says yes. Ali wants to know if Johnny is 100% with them until the end. Johnny says his plan is going up in smoke here this week and he’s trying to figure out how to keep that from happening. Ali says she will NOT vote out Maddy. Johnny says if he puts up one of the other three that leaves him and the remaining two along with Daela, Liv, and Ali. Alejandra says she wouldn’t do that. Ali tells us she’s lying through her teeth and she’s hoping Johnny buys it. Johnny says he’ll think about it. Ali leaves and Johnny says he can’t believe she thinks he’s believes that bull crap. Paras is talking to Johnny in the HOH and she wants him to prove they are with him by putting up Liv. Paras says Alejandra is gunning for Johnny hard. Johnny says then why wouldn’t I put her up? Johnny says doesn’t it prove I’m with you if I don’t put one of you up? Paras says she’s paranoid but one thing about her is what you see is what you get. Johnny says what stinks for him is whatever side he chooses will have the numbers this week. It’s time for the veto ceremony. Derek gives Kaela a chance to explain why Derek should use the veto on her. Kaela says while she’d love for him to use it on her, he earned and she will support his decision. Derek has decided to use the POV on himself. He says Kaela is an amazing woman and his best friend in the house and he doesn’t want to see her go. Johnny must now name a replacement nominee. His replacement nominee is Alejandra. Johnny says he chose her because he sees a lot of value in the strategy of her next to Kaela. He also says she’s a social assassin and if anyone can break up Derek and Kaela it’s her. Ali says well she’s on the block but giddy up and let’s go and she’s going to fight. Kaela says it’s not looking good but she’s going to talk herself out of this one. She says it can and will happen. Arisa says this week Big Brother is cleaning house in a BIG way. It's time for their triple eviction.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, the top 12 perform for your votes. Voting is now open on all methods. We’re going to kick things off with Team Adam’s passionate rocker, Rayshun LaMarr. Rayshun has chosen to sing the song When Love Takes Over by David Guetta featuring Kelly Rowland. Adam says this song embodies his spirit. Adam advises him to aim flat because 9 times out of 10 he’ll end up hitting the notes spot on. Alicia says there is something about Rayshun that is so electric. Adam says Rayshun continues to amp it up more every time he performs which is not only a key to success in life, but on the show as well. Adam believes Rayshun is the front runner because he is the best performer in the group. Next is Team Kelly’s country singer, Kaleb Lee. Kaleb is going to sing Amazed by Lonestar. He says this song reminds him how awesome his wife is. If he’s had a bad day, then she makes him feel better. Kelly suggests maybe just starting the song with him and his guitar. Blake says that performance was amazing. Kelly says she is such a fan of him and she loves the texture of his voice. Kelly says she knows he got a little tripped up because of his emotions, but that’s ok because people like that. Next is Team Alicia’s Boston artist, Jackie Foster. Jackie is going to perform Toxic by Britney Spears. She is doing an arrangement her band has used which puts a rock spin on the pop tune. Alicia says Jackie is between P!nk and No Doubt. Kelly says Jackie came out and was so sexy and cool and a little punk and rock and roll, but still in the pop vein. Alicia says she was so excited about this song and she got to show people who she really is as an artist. She says this was killer and she nailed it. We’re going to continue now with Team Blake’s country artist Spensha Baker, with a song by one of her favorite singers of all time. She is going to sing Down on My Knees by Trisha Yearwood. Blake tells her it is so important to stay on top of the beat. Adam says it’s very rare for a singer to have it all, but Spensha has it. Blake says she’s one of his favorites he’s ever worked with and he can see every week her growth. Blake says Spensha is doing exactly what she is meant to do by singing country. We’re going to continue with the Indiana soul singer, Christiana Danielle. Christiana is going to sing Say Something by A Great Big World. Alicia says this moment is going to set her apart. Kelly says Christiana’s low tones are so magical and she doesn’t know any other singer that has that. Alicia says Christiana keeps showing them the different dimensions to her and she doesn’t feel like there is another person in the world that sounds like she does. We’re going to continue with back to back performances. Here is Kelly’s soul singer D.R. King. He is going to perform White Flag by Dido. Kelly says he has crazy range but he’s also got the ability to bring it down and keep it cool, calm, and collected. Kelly wants him to build throughout the song. Blake says there are so many different sounds to D.R.’s voice and he has so many layers of what he’s capable of doing. Kelly says he’s such an amazing vocalist and she wants to hear the record he’s going to make. She says he is so different than anyone else. We’re going to continue with Team Adam’s powerhouse, Sharane Callister. Sharane has chosen to sing In My Blood by Shawn Mendes. Adam says she brings people in with her emotion and she shows artistry. Alicia says she is really rooting for Sharane, and she’s excited for her. Adam says Sharane has the ability to make people understand she is telling the truth. The only thing he cares about that she has in spades is the ability to bring them along on the journey. Next is Team Blake’s blues rocker, Pryor Baird. Pryor has decided to perform Pickin’ Wildflowers by Keith Anderson. Blake says this is a recognizable song to the country fan base that he needs to nail all the lyrics. Kelly says every time Pryor sings it reminds her of Texas bars. Blake says Pryor is to a song what a bulldozer is to trees. Blake says every time Pryor gets on stage he delivers a different version of the song he is performing and it’s magic. Next is the youngest artist in the competition, Brynn Cartelli. Brynn is going to sing Up to the Mountain by Patty Griffin. Kelly says Brynn can just tell a story with her tone and that’s highly rare and impressive in a 15-year old. Alicia says she feels like Brynn is from another planet, another era, and another time. Kelly says Brynn has the craziest, most eclectic taste in music for a 15-year old and she is amazing. We’re going to continue with the country singer Adam saved, Jackie Verna. Jackie has chosen the song I’m With You by Avril Lavigne. Adam tells Jackie to make sure she hits the notes but she can stretch them out as she wants. Blake says he loves how direct Jackie is and she sings with purpose and she’s a great singer. Adam says her voice is so amazing, but tonight he could see the improvement so much. Next, we have Team Alicia’s North Carolina folk rocker, Brittan Buchanan. Britton has chosen to sing Small Town by John Mellencamp. Alicia says this song has never been done on the show before and he’s so talented. Kelly says Britton’s an amazing vocalist and he’s so cool. Alicia says he doesn’t need this stage and he doesn’t need anyone else because his destiny is to be here. Alicia says they’ve watched him bloom and she’s excited to see him continue on. The final artist from Team Blake is Kyla Jade. Kyla has chosen to perform One Night Only by Jennifer Hudson. Blake says her talent is undeniable and there is no question she is a front runner. Blake says Kyla, welcome to the front of the stage. He says no more insecurities about her taking her moment. Blake says let’s start mowing them down! It’s exciting and it’s her time.
  8. We pick up after the POV ceremony. Ryan says Derek doesn’t use the veto…surprise! So he’s on the block for the fourth straight time but this time he doesn’t think he’ll need Canada’s vote. Johnny says he’s a bigger target than Ryan, but he will not go out without a fight. Derek and Kaela talk and they are counting votes. Derek tells Kaela that Ali and Liv are trying to keep Johnny and not telling them. Kaela thinks they have Maddy, Paras, and Will. Ryan goes in to talk to Johnny and says let the smear campaign again. Ryan says he doesn’t play that way and Johnny says he doesn’t either. Johnny says he’s telling Ryan he isn’t going to play dirty, but he’s in a tough spot. He started the game with the sad puppy dog routine but his life is on the line and he’s going full bulldog on these people. Will is talking to Paras and he is telling her he’s thinking of sending Johnny home. He thinks this might be the only chance to get him home. Will tells us after last week he might as well take the shot. Will says they have to get rid of Johnny. Johnny says being on the block sucks, he feels like he has the plague because no one wants to be around him. He goes to talk to Liv and Ali and asks what they think the odds are and Ali says 50/50. Liv says she thinks it’s tied but Derek is not going to keep him. Ali says keeping Johnny would be great for them because he would help take a shot at Daela when the time comes. Ali tells Johnny that Paras might be closer to Ryan than she’s letting on, but if Johnny can get Will then maybe he can get Paras. Paras and Ryan are playing pool and chatting. Ryan is telling Paras that pool is a lot like Big Brother. He says you are only ever in control of one ball at a time. And sometimes when you swing wildly sometimes good things happen and sometimes bad things happen. Paras asks if stripes are an alliance and solids are an alliance and Ryan says and you have to take the other team out. Liv tells us she doesn’t want to be seen around the house campaigning for Johnny because someone like Paras will shut down and think you’re pushing your agenda too hard. Liv is talking to Paras and mentions Ryan has escaped the block three times and if he does it again he could make it to the end and win. Liv leaves and Paras mumbles this game is so funny, but she’s not keeping Johnny. Big Brother has finally revealed what is in the crypt in the catacombs. Will is the one who discovered it and things came to a screeching halt. We see Will going into the catacombs and the crypt top flashing. He says he’s really puzzled. He says is this like Harry Potter or what? He hears something inside the crypt and he’s trying to figure out what it’s saying. He finally slides the top off. Inside is a mummified moose. The moose says Will doesn’t look happy to see him, was he waiting for a secret power? He doesn’t have a power but he does have a secret mission. He has one hour to get the entire house to screech and kiss a cod and if he succeeds the house will get a kitchen party. If he fails, then the entire house will be on slop. At the same time, the HG are getting instructions that Will is getting a secret mission and it is their job to make sure he fails. Will first talks Derek into doing it but the others are not cooperating. Ali says their strategy is to delay and stall until Will goes nuts. Kaela says it’s hilarious to watch Will suffer and maybe they should give him a break. Johnny, Maddy, and Kaela all participated. Olivia helps out too. Ali and Ryan are the last two Will has to get to participate. Ali finally comes down and she participates. Their entire plan hinges on Ryan holding out. There is 2 minutes left and Ryan says he has this because he’s going to enjoy making Will suffer. Will is very persistent. Will is taking everything upstairs since Ryan won’t come down. Ryan finally refused to do it and Will says he did not complete the mission and he feels like he let everyone down. Will goes and talks to the moose and the moose asks what happened and Will says big red wouldn’t cooperate. The moose says he failed and now the whole house will be punished. Will is going to break the news to everyone. Will tells them they are on slop for the rest of the season and they could have had a house party. Johnny asks why Will didn’t try harder. Ali is upset and says she’s self-evicting because she can’t do slop. Ali is yelling at Will and they tell him they had a secret mission too. They get the kitchen party and the HG are dancing and eating. Ali says even Ryan had some dad moves. Arisa tells us Ryan still thinks he’s pretty safe but Johnny is still trying to rise from the ashes. Derek and Ryan are talking and Derek doesn’t think Johnny has a chance of getting the votes he needs. Ali says right now the house is leaning towards keeping Ryan, but she needs to keep Johnny focused and have him talk to Will and get his vote. Maddy comes in and asks if they are chatting and Johnny says they were and Maddy leaves. Ali says come on Johnny, I need you to pull this out. Johnny goes to talk to Will and says Ryan will never be Will’s ally and Will says he doesn’t care about Ryan. Johnny says if he goes then Kaela and Derek have the power to stay with Will and their side or they can go with Liv and Ali. Will wants to have a chat with Ali. Ali tells Will that Daela is making her and Liv feel quite comfortable. Ali says Will needs to think about what’s best for his game. Will needs to see where Paras’ head is at. Johnny says he doesn’t have anyone in the game, he has Paras but that could go bad too. Will pitches to Paras about keeping Johnny. He says without Johnny they have no shot of getting rid of Daela and he doesn’t trust Kaela at all. Paras agrees. Ali joins Paras and Will and they are discussing their options. Ali says as long as Johnny is in the game he will always be a bigger target than them, but if Ryan stays he goes on the backburner. Paras feels like Ryan is a number for them though. Will says it’s up to Paras and she should just let him know. Ryan comes in to talk to Paras and Will and he does a little shimmy. Will wants to know where Ryan’s head is at and what he will do if he wins HOH. Ryan swears he will not go after Will and Will asks if Ryan has a deal with Daela and Ryan says no. Ryan says Daela has told him they want Johnny to go home, but they haven’t offered a deal. Ryan says they both have kids and he is not going to knife him because they have kids. Ryan says it’s been white room vs red room for awhile and they need to get out there and win HOH and put two of them up. Paras says she believes Ryan after he leaves. Arisa greets the HG. She says so far 7 HG have been evicted and she has a little surprise…they aren’t totally done with them just yet. Rozina says hello and she misses them and she is proud of them. Have they been missing her cooking. Andrew advises them to change their socks a bit more. Jesse says life outside the house is pretty good and he’s going to Coachella this weekend. Veronica tells them to be nice to each other…on second thought be mean. Hamza wants to see someone stir it up a little bit. Merron says BB legends are made in that house. Erica says they are all doing great and she can’t wait to see them on the other side. Arisa then tells them jury starts tonight and the HG evicted will be the first member. Johnny says it’s not every day you get to live your dream, but please know he wants to stay and play and he loves all of them…most of the time. Ryan says he’s played with honesty and integrity and he thinks Canada backed him up on that a week ago. If he does get evicted tonight, they need to own their game, stand by their game because that’s the only way they are getting his vote. It’s time to vote! Alejandra votes to evict Ryan. Olivia votes to evict Ryan. Will votes to evict Ryan. Paras votes to evict Ryan. Maddy votes to evict Ryan. Kaela votes to evict Ryan. By a unanimous vote of 6-0, Ryan has been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. Ryan hugs the suit of armor as he leaves and tells everyone to own their lies. Arisa greets Ryan and asks where did he fall apart after being on the block four times? Ryan says he fell apart weeks ago and no one trusted him. Arisa asks what he has to say Canada? Ryan thanks them so much for saving him, it was an incredible experience and he’s glad he gets to help pick the winner and he’s sorry for only making it another week. It’s time to find a new HOH! Each HG will climb their rope to the top of their candy and try to stay on as long as they can. Last one on their candy wins HOH. All HG look solid and their candy squirts liquid at them. Arisa tells us next week, not one, not two, but three HG will be evicted…it’s time for the triple eviction!

She is one that people underestimated, but there is no one in the competition right now that can carry long, pristine notes like her. The next artist is Drew Cole performing Wild Horses by The Rolling Stones. Adam loves that he performed that. Adam says that was so, so good it was unbelievable. Next we have Mia Boostrom and she is singing Either Way by Chris Stapleton. Adam says it’s really crazy that it was just the two of them the whole time.

  10. We pick up after the nomination ceremony. Derek says he nominated Johnny and Ryan and they may seem like “safe choices” but him and Kaela have alliances on both sides and they really were his only options. Johnny says he blew up his game with lying about the vote and he’s in serious danger. Ryan says he’s on the block again…surprise! But he put him on the block Johnny, who is a huge target, and he might be able to pull this off this week. Johnny and Derek talk and Derek says only Johnny and Ryan’s names came up and he has no hard feelings with Johnny and if Johnny pulls himself off the block then they can just play the game. Johnny jokes that Derek should just throw him the POV. Johnny knows he has to buckle up and get in the game. Ryan talks to Alejandra and she tells him he needs to fight like hell. Ryan tells us Ali and Olivia have made it clear they want to work with him and considering this is his fourth nomination, he’ll take any help he can get. He tells Ali that Johnny told him not to trust Ali. Johnny tells us he realizes he needs Olivia and Ali on his side if he has a chance to stay in the game. He talks to Olivia and he says he doesn’t know if Liv and Ali are working with Daela and Liv says they aren’t working together but they’ve been in power two weeks and her and Ali haven’t been on the block. Johnny says he just thought their bond was so solid. Johnny then talks to Ali. Ali tells him truth be told he needs to figure out for himself if it’s loyalty or game. Johnny says he realized Daela’s only other alternative for the block was them. Ali says she doesn’t know if she necessarily believes that. She tells him that several people told her that Erica and Johnny had doubts in her. It’s time to pick players for the POV! Johnny tells us that clearly he is alone in the house. Derek draws Maddy. Johnny draws Paras and she is very excited. Ryan draws Olivia. The host for the veto competition will be Alejandra. Maddy was hoping to play in the veto competition. Derek says he and Kaela are in a really good spot in the house right now. He has an alliance with Olivia and Ali and one with Maddy and Paras. Johnny is in the red rose room and he’s talking to himself. He really wants revenge. It’s time for the veto competition and it’s a medieval set up. They will be firing at a target, the HG closest to the center wins a buy to the final. Johnny is the closest in round 1 and he moves on automatically to the final round. Now that they are ranked, everyone else will fire cannonballs at their opponent’s army and will go against the next ranked HG. Olivia and Paras are the fifth and sixth ranked players. Olivia and Paras are both struggling. Olivia knocks down her first target and then Paras knocks down one. Paras gets her second then Olivia gets one and they both have one target each. Olivia hits her target and is moving on to the next round. Paras has been eliminated. Derek is now going to battle against Olivia. Derek needs to make it to the final round against Johnny and win POV and keep his nominations the same. Derek knocks down his first target. Derek says Johnny is his target and what’s helping him is he’s picturing Johnny’s face on each target. Derek knocks down his last two targets and he moves on. Ryan and Derek will now face off against each other. Ryan says first order of business…a medieval stare down. Derek quickly knocks down his first two targets. He says the disadvantage is he has to play in so many rounds, but the advantage is he gets better. Ryan is disappointed he can’t compete against Johnny, but go Derek. Maddy will now go against Derek. Maddy gets her first target. Derek gets his first and then Maddy gets her second. Derek gets another target and they each have one target left. Maddy says he’s not even paying attention because she doesn’t need to win. Derek gets the last target. Final round is Derek vs. Johnny and the winner wins the POV. Johnny says there is no way Derek is beating him two comps in a row. Derek says Johnny has been a target since Day one and it’s the perfect time to take him out. Johnny has the lead then Derek takes the lead. Derek needs one more target and Johnny needs two. Johnny says Derek is ahead and he needs to pick up his pace and win this veto. Johnny connects and they both have one target remaining. Derek has barely missed the target twice. Johnny is also coming very close. Derek hits the last target and has won the POV! Derek says he has all the power in the house. This is his kingdom and they will all bow to him. Johnny says he is feeling absolute defeat and he loves this game so much. Ryan tells Johnny he really is sorry he lost. He says he was very conflicted. Ryan is commiserating with Johnny and says it’s not over. He tells Johnny to convince Derek to use the veto and put someone else up. Johnny says he won’t use the veto on me. Ryan says it’s bus chucking time. Derek is talking to Kaela in the HOH and he says he’s just glad he doesn’t have to do a replacement nominee and their alliances are fine. Kaela says he’s so hot. Johnny knows he needs to talk to Ali and Liv and get them to turn against Daela. Johnny is curious if he has a chance. He feels like with Erica out of the house there is a consensus it should be him. But he feels like they could use someone like him who could be loyal. Johnny tells them he knows Daela is also working with the other side and Ali says she knows that. She says it sucks to think of him leaving. Ali tells Johnny to give them the evening to absorb everything and she will talk to Liv later. Johnny thinks they trust him and he knows they can blow his game up. Johnny just has to trust them. Johnny leaves and Liv and Ali talk. Ali wonders if that was genuine or if they are being played. Liv doesn’t think they have Ryan, that he’s just trying to be good with everyone. Liv says to pull this off, they’d have to throw Daela hard under the bus. It’s game night and Derek has invited Kaela, Johnny, and Ali to play Jenga. We see Liv laying on a bed and she tells us she’s moping around and she’s in a horrible mood. She says she misses her family and she’s not an emotional person but this game is taking a toll on her. Paras and Olivia are talking and Paras asks if she could see one person from home who would it be. Olivia starts crying and she just misses her dad. She says this is a lot more mentally straining than she thought it would be. Paras agrees. Ali goes in while Johnny is laying down and wants to talk to him. Ali tells him she and Liv feel good with Daela but she knows they can take a shot at any time. Ali says getting rid of Johnny will appease them, but she knows it loses a number for them. She wants to Johnny to bait Daela and tell them he thought him and Erica had something solid with Ali and Liv, but if he stays he will help them take Liv and Ali. Ali wants to see what happens and where they stand. Liv comes in and says Johnny has nothing to lose by doing that. Ryan is downstairs talking to Kaela and he says they are where they are and he tells her he doesn’t hate sitting next to Johnny. Ryan tells us Johnny is a very attractive target and if it were someone else sitting next to him he could be leaving. Ryan asks Kaela if she could vote to keep him and she says he’s not looking that bad to her right now. Johnny goes to talk to Kaela and Derek. He pitches getting rid of Ryan for them and he’d be appreciative of that. Johnny says keeping threats in could be good. Derek says Johnny is a very good player, but he’s also an emotional guy. Johnny says if he stayed he’d leave the emotions outside. He says he does want to play smart. Johnny says if they can find a way that he could be beneficial to their game, please keep him in mind. Johnny thinks he might have convinced Kaela and Derek to keep him and he didn’t even have to use Ali and Liv’s plan, he did it Johnny’s way. Derek pitches keeping Johnny because he likes him as a person better and Kaela says she doesn’t like Ryan at all. Derek says it could be a huge risk but it could be fun. It’s time for veto ceremony. Derek heads to the throne room and he says the nominations he made were the best decisions at the time. He says Johnny made a pretty good point, keeping him could help them out a lot. If he uses the veto, then he risks exposing his alliances. He has no clue what to do. Derek heads to the living room. Ryan says as a golfer he knows it’s one great shot that makes a round and he had to make 16 shots to win that necklace. He hopes not to be on the block, but he expects to be. Johnny says right now he’s alone stranded in a desert and the rest of the vultures can swoop down on him, but he has the power to save him. His choice. Derek has chosen NOT to use the power of veto. He says they continue to get deeper and deeper into the game and they have both proven they can win under pressure. If any of the other HG want to win the game, they need one of them to leave. Let the campaigning begin. Johnny tells us it’s looking like it’s the end of the road but he refuses to believe it. From the ashes, the phoenix will rise. Ryan says Derek doesn’t use the veto, shock. Here he is for the fourth time but he thinks Johnny is an attractive target and the other HG might take him out.

    Tonight, Team Blake and Team Alicia will perform for the final two spots on their teams. Voting will be open for about 30 minutes for each team. Spensha Baker from Team Blake is first and she sings Smoke Break by Carrie Underwood. Kelly says the fact Spensha can sing a Carrie song like that and nail it is amazing. Kelly says she will be a force in country music, she’s a big fan. Blake says it’s hard to not have favorites along the way and Spensha is one of his favorites. He thinks her performance tonight is the lane she needs to be in, it was high energy and she had a big voice. Wilkes takes the stage next and he performs Don’t Speak by No Doubt. His mic stand falls as he’s finishing his song and he kneels to get it and finishes his song. Adam says he deserves to get voted through because that was the illest improvisation he’s ever seen in his entire life. Alicia says he’s special, he has something he doesn’t try to do it he just does it. Alicia says his range is ridiculous and she really thinks he deserves to be here. Blake says these guys chose the songs they are doing and what a great song choice. He says the mic drop, Wilkes is just a pro. Pryor Baird is next and he performs 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton. He has all four judges on his feet. Adam says he’s always been a huge fan of his and he’s amazing. Blake says he agrees. He thinks Pryor deserves to be on the show and it’s hard to believe he won’t get through. He doesn’t know where he gets the range from, but it’s unbelievable. Austin Giorgio has chosen to sing Love Yourself by Justin Bieber. Alicia says he has such a light inside of him. Every time he comes on stage he’s enjoying what he’s doing and it shows that he loves this. She loves that he has his own style. Blake says Austin also has earned his place moving forward because there is no one else like him, not only on the show but out there. He says that’s something exciting for him as a coach and as a fan of the show. All of the results will be revealed tomorrow night. The final artist from Team Blake is Gary Edwards and he is singing America, the Beautiful. He also has an ovation from all of the judges. Kelly says his runs are insane and so is his range.

Voting is closed for Team Blake and voting is now open for Team Alicia! Terrence Cunningham has chosen the song Ain’t Nobody by Rufus and Chaka Khan. Adam says wow. He says that was another planet. He doesn’t know if people truly understands what he does, but he is what the show should epitomize. Alicia says she’s going to take this opportunity to explain to America why they should vote for Terrence. She says he’s so special. He arranges all his own music and creates it how he hears it. He marches to his own drum and his own beat. Alicia says that was amazing! Christiana Danielle sings Take Me To Church by Hozier. Kelly says she might be the greatest person on this show. She loves her team, but if she’s looking at everyone else’s team Christiana is the one to beat. She is so good and so ridiculous. Alicia says Christiana is a special soul. She has this energy that is so pure and her voice is a one of a kind voice. You will not hear another Christiana anywhere you go. She is amazing. The next artist to perform is Jackie Foster and she’s singing Alone by Heart. All four judges are on their feet. Alicia says Jackie has a very clear sense of who she is and that’s very rare. She effortless goes to these places and she is so unique and powerful. Alicia says it so hard what she just did. Kelsea Johnson takes the stage and performs Need You Bad by Jazmine Sullivan. Alicia says she loved it, she’s in her essence and her center. She is a one of one and she has her own space kind of like Lauryn Hill. She is a unique voice and she’s carving out her own space. Voting will close for Team Alicia at the end of the show. If you want to vote, now is the time. The last artist to perform is Johnny Bliss and he has chosen the song One and Only by Adele. Alicia says Johnny has the most beautiful energy and everyone has seen how versatile he is. There is not one style of music he cannot conquer.

  13. Previously, on Big Brother Canada, Kaela outlasted and outfoxed everyone and won her first HOH of the season. From minute one it was game on for the pint-sized punisher. Her play spread paranoia and descension throughout the house and when the blitz was over she tossed Will on the block as her pawn and Ryan as her target. At the veto competition, with the odds stacked against him, the beard beasted out. But in the final showdown with Johnny, Ryan fell just short. With Johnny’s desires to use the veto threatening Kaela’s noms, Kaela laid a trap for Johnny to see if he would flinch. And if he crossed her she’d backdoor his bestie. Johnny decided to back off and Erica dodged a bullet leaving Will and Ryan locked to the block. Or were they? Tonight, will Canada drop the ultimate bomb shell and save Will or Ryan from the block? And who is next on Kaela’s hit list? And who will become the new HOH? We pick up after the veto ceremony. Will says he’s still on the block but he’s not worried about it. He trusts Johnny and the rest of the houseguests. Kaela is going to be so satisfied if Ryan is the one walking out the door this week. Olivia doesn’t care who goes home, but she doesn’t want to see Will gone because he’s the last good looking guy this season. Ryan is talking to Paras in the white rose room and he thinks he’ll be alone a lot. Ryan says he only has one shot to take next week and if they don’t get Kaela when she is HOH, then she will likely win. Ryan says Derek has never beaten him in anything and he knows Paras is in a worst case scenario, but he’d like to stay. Ryan says at the end of the day Will is a big friendly target and if she’s sitting next to Will who goes home? Paras says me. Ryan says and if you’re next to me, I go home. Ryan says the longer Will stays in the game the deeper the relationships get. Earlier this week our friends at Wendy’s challenged the HG to get a little “fresh” with each other. The HG will be divided into two teams of four and they will be cutting vegetables for 100 salads. The winners will received dinner from Wendy’s and videos from their loved ones. Olivia has found a secret message and she has to complete three secret missions in order to win videos for the entire house. She must take a shower, take a nap, and eat a salad. It’s a secret and no one can know. She read the message upstairs saying she needed to get a hair elastic. Will, Derek, and Erica are on a team with Olivia. Olivia says she’s over it and she wants to take a shower. She heads upstairs and Erica is like is she serious? Olivia says she’s too tired. Will asks if she’s really going to take a shower. Olivia takes her shower and then lays down in the WA on the couch. Paras is the judge and she goes to check on Olivia and Olivia says she just wants to sleep. Olivia goes to eat her salad and gets a plate. Will tells us he wants the videos from home and she just needs to chop some vegetables. Will, Derek, and Erica think they are done and Paras has to check everything and approve it. Alejandra is upset. She feels getting her video was ripped away from her. Ryan is on the stairs with his head down. Olivia then has everyone gather in the living room and she informs them about the secret mission. Olivia tells them what she had to do and she says since she was successful everyone gets dinner from Wendy’s and videos from home. Alejandra gets her video first, then Erica, then Johnny, then Kaela, then Liv, then Ryan, then Will, then Maddy, Paras, and finally Derek. Maddy and Johnny are in tears and everyone is emotional. Ryan is talking to the cameras and he says it’s looking grim. He thought there would be someone older than him in the house and there was, it was Rozie and she was voted out because of it. He will be competitive the longer he stays in the game and he loves Canada. And anything he can do for Canada he is going to do and anything they can do for him will be so appreciated. Olivia, Alejandra, Derek, and Kaela are in the HOH room talking about Erica. They think it’s odd Erica doesn’t want to talk game with them and they think she is closer to Johnny than them. Kaela says it’s very clear that Johnny is not with us. Derek has noticed Johnny and Erica are the last two to come out of the bedrooms. Derek doesn’t think Erica would put them up yet, but he thinks Johnny would take a shot. Will is moving into the other room and Paras says loyalty speaks volumes in the house. If Will moves in with Johnny and aligns with him, then she would have no problem voting him out. Ryan says he feels like there’s still a lot of game for them to play. Now he just needs to convince people to keep in the game instead of the tall guy who everyone likes. He starts making his rounds to the HG. Ryan says he has no trouble in the outside world putting his boots on, picking up the toolbox, and going to work and being in the house is no different. Ryan says he feels like he deserves to be in the game more than Will does because he’s had to fight in the game since week 2 and has won an HOH and pulled himself off the block and Will is getting his first taste of it this week. Ryan makes his pitch to Johnny and he says he’s been the guy who’s floated along and no one really wants to work with him and maybe now is the time. Johnny says he wishes he’d use veto save Will and then maybe they could both be safe. Will interrupts their discussion. The plot is about to thicken and it’s time to let the HG know Canada has decided to use a little power. She greets the HG and says she has huge news that will rock the house and put them all on edge. She fills them in about the vote. Arisa says they decided to vote and the voted in a huge way and they decided to save one of tonight’s nominees. The HG Canada voted to save this week is…Ryan! Ryan thanks Canada. Kaela now has to decide who will be the replacement nominee. She cannot nominate Derek because he won immunity for the week and Johnny can’t be nominated because he is the POV holder. We see the last minute meetings. Kaela has asked Erica if she’d vote Will out and she wants him to stay. Kaela talks to Ali and wants to put up Erica and vote her out and Ali thinks it’s hasty. It’s time to decide. Kaela has named Erica as the replacement nominee. Will doesn’t know where to start but please keep him, he doesn’t want to go home. He respects their decision but he doesn’t want to go home. Erica says she can’t say she doesn’t see the irony in the backdoor. Please keep her, it’s hard to campaign against her boy Will. It’s time to vote. Johnny votes to evict Will. Alejandra votes to evict Erica. Olivia votes to evict Erica. Ryan votes to evict Will. Paras votes to evict Erica. Derek votes to evict Erica. Maddy votes to evict Erica. By a vote of 5-2, Erica has been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. Erica is irritated and she says screw both Kaela and Derek. Kaela says she was told she was Erica’s number one target. Erica says cute. Kaela says she respects Erica and Erica says she doesn’t care. Kaela and Johnny get into an argument as Erica is leaving. Kaela says Johnny wanted Will to stay and Johnny says he did. Johnny says emotions are running high and it sucks it happened this way. Arisa says that was an emotional exit, do you feel betrayed. Erica understands why Kaela had to do it, she can’t play as well as Erica can. Erica says she’s not great socially and she can’t win a comp to save her life. She won a comp by pushing a button. Arisa says you won comps you didn’t even want to win, do you think that created a bigger target? Erica says yeah but she wanted to play hard. Arisa asks how she thinks Johnny will do without her? Erica says she’s nervous for him because besides her he won most of the comps. Arisa asks how she thinks Ryan will do? Erica is worried about Ryan too. She doesn’t know if he can come back but he knows the game better than anyone. Arisa asks who’s going to win? Erica says Johnny! It’s time for the HOH competition! The competition is called before or after. Arisa will read events that happened and they have to decide if the first event happened before or after the next event. On the first question, Will is incorrect and eliminated. Did HG untangle themselves in a POV competition before or after the guys tangled the girls hair in a task? The answer is before and they are all correct. We’ll find out Monday who won this HOH and one more thing, jury starts next week.
  14. Previously on Big Brother Canada, at a buttoned-up HoH comp, the houseguests were hardpressed to keep pressing. And when Big Brother tempted Will with a call from home, Kaela sweetened the deal, "Take the phone call and you're safe and I'm HoH." The toast of the coast spoke to his son and the smooth operator [Kaela] dialed up her first HoH win of the season. With the two power duos riding high, and Ryan feeling low, Kaela pulled the strings and Ryan spilled the beans. Fueled by fresh intel, Kaela went to work raising hell. The pint-size puppetmaster reveled in the ruckus; but after the fireworks and Maddy's waterworks, Paras worked her magic. Then, at the nomination ceremony, the girl with the pearls put up Will as the pawn and Ryan as her target. Tonight, in a trippy veto comp, who will win Big Brother's passport to safety? Where there's a Will, is there a way-- off the block? Or has Ryan punched a one-way ticket out the door? Buckle your seatbelts, it's time for take-off on Big Brother Canada. We pick up after the nomination ceremony and Kaela says she just called out Ryan in the ceremony and as HOH she’s going to continue to stir the post. She doesn’t care who she has to lie to, what stories she has to make up, or how she makes people feel. She loves playing off people’s emotions. Emotional players are easy to manipulate and there are a lot of emotional players in there. Ryan says with this being his third straight nomination it confirms what he’s already known for awhile…no one has his back. He knows this time it’s worse than any before. He’s going to have to get in there and win the veto or do a lot of scrambling to stay in the house this week. Will says he thinks Kaela is a dirty liar. She said in her speech that Ryan was a manipulator and liar and he thinks Kaela is the exact same. She stabbed him in the back and used him as a pawn and thinks everything is ok? He’s going after her and he wants her blood on his hands. Paras can’t believe she saved Maddy and got Ryan on the block. Paras pulls Maddy to the side and says she needs to act sad and cry and blame everything on Ryan. Maddy says me? Cry on command? No problem. And she smiles for the camera. Maddy leaves and Paras celebrates and can’t believe she did that. Ryan wants to talk to Kaela and he says despite telling people all day that he wouldn’t go up but he needs to reinforce his version of events and remind her that it wasn’t him that set everyone against her. He tells her that her speech was harsh and it’s not true. He says the idea that he manipulated everyone is a little strong and Kaela says she does feel strong about that. Ryan says he’s been on the outside looking in and just doing what everyone has told him to do. Kaela says she’s just going off the information she was given. Ryan says she was given false information. Kaela wants to know who he is claiming the ring leader was and Ryan says it was Maddy and Johnny was the second person he was supposed to and then Paras and Will. Kaela tells him she was told Ryan convinced Johnny and then he went to Maddy. Ryan says that’s not true and they’ve been telling him all along Daela. Kaela asks all four of them and Ryan confirms. Ryan says if they all four sat down and told her he was the ring leader, they all lied to her. Kaela says at this point she doesn’t know who’s lying and who is not. Will and Maddy are downstairs and Maddy says she didn’t know that was going to happen. Will says at least she is safe and she says so are you. Will says he’s on the block, you’re never safe on the block. Will says Ryan is cuddling up to her right now right? Maddy confirms and Will says Ryan isn’t beating him in that veto competition. Will wants Maddy to go up and interrupt their conversation and thank Kaela for saving her. Maddy goes into the HOH and says she’d like to have a conversation when Kaela has a chance. Ryan stands up to leave and Kaela says just to confirm all four of them and Ryan again confirms. Ryan goes to ask Will to chat with him in the white rose room. Will says how was that for TV and Ryan says he’d rather have not been called a manipulative liar on in front of the entire country, but it is what it is. Will says no one saw that coming and now he has a huge target on his back as a pawn and Ryan says no he doesn’t, not this week. Ryan asks Will if his name came out of his mouth today and Will asks if she told him it did. Will says he’ll swear Ryan never slipped out of his mouth. Ryan says she told him that all four of them, Maddy, Paras, Johnny, and Will told her he was the ring leader behind trying to get them out. Will asks Ryan if he takes his word for it and Ryan says he takes his over most. Ryan says this is his third straight nomination and Will tells him to fight for his life tomorrow. Ryan doesn’t know that he wants to play. He lives in an honest world and this game, he has everyone lying to his face. Kaela and Derek are downstairs with Erica, Maddy, Alejandra, Johnny, and Paras and she tells them Ryan threw Maddy, Paras, Johnny, and Will under the bus. Kaela tells Maddy that Ryan was very adamant she was the ring leader. Maddy says she’s furious. Maddy tells us well, yeah, I was the ring leader, but Ryan is a grown man and if he thinks he can go up and blame it all on her with no implications on himself, he’s wrong. Maddy says she needs to put out this fire quickly and what better way to do that than with big crocodile tears. Maddy goes to talk to Ryan and asks to talk with him alone. She starts to cry and says how dare he and that she stuck up for him. Ryan says Maddy told him he needed to shift his target and she says then why did you Kaela and Derek’s name before that? He says he didn’t and says he shifted to Ali and Olivia. Maddy says Ryan says he didn’t want to go after Ali and Liv, he wanted to go after Kaela and Derek. Ryan says what do you mean I’m throwing you under the bus? She says because you said I was the ring leader. Maddy says I don’t believe you, this is heartbreaking. Maddy tells Ryan he sewered the people who voted to keep him last week. The HG head out to the veto competition and it’s Air Transat. Erica, Johnny, and Derek are joining Kaela, Ryan, and Will to play for the veto. Olivia is hosting and is dressed as a stewardess. Will says of all the airports he’s been in Canada, she’s the hottest customs officer he’s seen yet. Houseguests: Grab your passports and get ready for an adventure as you’ll be jetsetting through three of Air Transat’s 26 fabulous European destinations. The winner will win the POV, but that’s not all. The winner will also receive a trip for two to London, England. Kaela would love to go to London and she’d probably take Derek. First stop, the city of love, Paris, France. Each of them will transfer one champagne glass at a time to their tray and lap around their table to pick up their next glass. Once they have all 21 of their glass they must stack them in a pyramid shape. If at any point you drop one glass, you must start all over. The first four HG to successfully stack their glasses will continue on to the next destination. Ryan says this competition is stacked against him. Erica and Johnny have 7 comp wins between them. Kaela is a professional server. This isn’t looking good. There’s no way he survives an eviction vote, this is do or die. Johnny says this is about staying calm, cool, and collected and keeping that laser focus going. Johnny is down and has to start over. Erica also has to start over. Derek is starting over as well. Then Will. Will says it’s ten times harder than it looks. Kaela says she’s been a server for several years and she’s won server of the year, there is no way she has this. Kaela doesn’t think Ryan has the upper hand in this one and she doesn’t think he’ll do well at all. Ryan is the first to start on his pyramid. He takes his time as he’s shaking and he’s the first to move on. He says he beat Kaela at her own game. Sorry, not sorry, mon Cherie. Will drops again and let’s out a scream of frustration. Will says he needs to win this veto because if Ryan wins someone else will be next to him and he’ll be the next to go. Johnny says Will and Ryan can’t win this veto because he’s pretty sure he was on Kaela’s radar. Erica begins working on her pyramid. She finishes and moves on. Johnny begins his pyramid. Kaela says the longer she does this her arm hurts. Johnny finishes his pyramid and moves on. Who will get the last spot, Kaela, Derek, or Will? Will drops again and lets out another scream of frustration. Kaela starts working on her pyramid. Derek is starting his pyramid and Will drops again. Derek says he and Kaela are working and he thinks he’ll let her win because she’s his HOH and he doesn’t want to end up in the dog house. Kaela finishes her pyramid and is the final HG to move on to the next destination. Will is frustrated and says if Ryan wins veto and takes himself off, then Will is in trouble. Welcome to London! Ryan, Erica, Johnny, and Kaela, must maneuver their stick through a maze that represents London’s underground subway system. The first two HG to succeed will then move on to the final destination. Kaela says Ryan is her number one target and if he stays he’s definitely targeting her so she needs to make it to the next round. Erica says she’d love to go on a trip to London with her girlfriend so she’s going for it. Johnny makes quick work of the puzzle and is the first to move on. Ryan completes his puzzle and moves on with Johnny. Ryan says there is a new comp beast in town! Cheerio Kaela, you’ve been eliminated! Welcome to Rome, the final stage of this competition. It’s Johnny vs Ryan for the POV! Here you two will race to put together a veto symbol. First, you must smash the clay pots to uncover your puzzle pieces. Once you collect all twenty of your pieces, you can begin your puzzle. Be careful! If you smash a clay pot with black sand you will receive a time penalty! The first person to complete their puzzle will win the POV, as well as the trip to London! Ryan says he WILL win the veto, he WILL earn his freedom, and he WILL have his vengeance. Johnny recaps what they are doing and Ryan says this is Big Brother’s house and he’s trying to treat it with respect, but tell him he can smash something?!? Johnny breaks a pot and it has black sand and he has a time penalty. He says this is valuable time he’s losing and if Ryan takes himself off the block he could be Kaela’s next target. Ryan breaks a pot with black sand just as Johnny’s penalty is over. Johnny breaks a pot and he has a time penalty again and Ryan goes back and he gets a penalty back to back. Ryan says he cannot lose to Johnny because there is no way he’d use the veto on him. Johnny has all 20 of his pieces and is starting his puzzle. Ryan is not far behind. Johnny is frustrated and he says he needs to use his brain. Ryan is mumbling that he has to focus and figure out the pieces. Johnny says something isn’t right and he’s rearranging things. Johnny thinks he has it and he does. Ryan is devastated and kneels at his puzzle podium. Johnny tells us sorry Ryan, but he had to keep himself safe this week. Will tells Ryan good try. Ryan says close isn’t good enough. It means he failed his family and that’s a pretty heavy burden to carry. Alejandra goes to comfort him and Ryan says he needs time. Ryan says six years of waiting, six years of anticipation and he’s going home without even coming close. Kaela and Derek are in the storage room talking and she says she was thinking that if Johnny didn’t win that then he was going to be Ryan’s replacement nominee. Derek says he was thinking the same thing and Kaela says they were both literally fighting for their lives there. Derek says this is good because Ryan goes home and Johnny is even more of a target. Ryan, Will, Johnny, and Erica are outside and they tell Ryan good try. Johnny says Ryan doubled his time on that puzzle and Erica says Ryan caught up hugely in that puzzle. Ryan says nice try doesn’t mean squat, nice try means go home. Erica says at least you made it past the first round. Ryan says it doesn’t matter and Erica says you don’t think it matters? Ryan says it doesn’t matter if you get close if you don’t win. Today was win or go home and he is going home. Erica says there could be a secret veto out there. Canada votes are out there. Ryan says no one is using it on me, I’m toxic. Will tells us he just lost the veto and he’s on the block and he needs to talk to Johnny and see if he’ll use the veto on him. Johnny says he doesn’t want Will out of the game because he trusts him. Johnny tells Will he can’t ruin his entire game if Ryan is going home anyway. Johnny tells us he really likes Will and he could be a huge asset in the game to him. Alejandra is in the WA with Olivia and she asks her to dance. Olivia is waiting for her hair to dry. Alejandra says they escaped the block again this week and they are sitting pretty so they can be a couple of ding dongs without a care in the world. Alejandra says her and Olivia are from two very different worlds, but she’s exactly what Ali needs in the house to balance herself. Kaela invited Derek, Ryan, and Will to play monopoly on their game night. Kaela fleeces Will out of a property and Ryan tells Will why it was a horrible deal. Ryan says he can’t stop talking strategy. Ryan says Monopoly is like Big Brother and you have to work with people’s personalities. Ryan says Kaela believes she’s a manipulator, and Will is too trusting, and Derek….is just Derek. Johnny and Erica are in the red rose room talking and Erica says she thinks Johnny narrowly escaped a backdoor this week. Erica says this game looks so much easier without Daela. Johnny agrees but doesn’t know if the veto should be used. He says it’s a power he has in a game where he hasn’t enacted any power. Erica says Johnny could present facts to Kaela. Johnny says they could tell her Will is nervous. Johnny tells us saving Will could be good for his game, but he has to convince Kaela it’s also good for her game. Johnny goes to talk to Kaela. Johnny begins floating the idea of maybe saving Will. He asks Kaela if she thinks people want her and Derek out so bad they might be willing to keep Ryan around. Kaela thinks he has crossed too many people. Johnny tells her he had a conversation with Will and he’s bummed and feeling not safe. Kaela tells us she doesn’t know why Johnny is messing with her nominations? If everyone is on board to get Ryan out, there is no need to change anything. Kaela tells us Johnny thinks he can outsmart her, but watch her outsmart him. Kaela discusses putting Maddy up and then Ali. Johnny isn’t saying any names and Kaela wants to know what Johnny’s heart wants him to do. Johnny says his gut wants him to save Will. Kaela says no one wants to be on the block. Kaela says Johnny is starting to annoy her so she’s going to drag his name around and put a huge target on his back. Kaela tells Ali that Johnny mentioned her as a replacement nominee. Kaela says he wants to save Will to get Will on his side. Kaela says Johnny said he wants to save Will because Will feels like he has no one and everyone is in pairs and Johnny could be a pair with Will. Kaela then says Johnny told her she could throw Ali up and made it sound like if Ryan didn’t go home, she could still get out someone she wanted to instead of an accident. Kaela then tells Ali Johnny called her sketchy. Kaela tells us Johnny didn’t really call Ali sketchy. Kaela says Johnny didn’t mention anything about Erica though. She asks Ali if she thinks Johnny has Erica more than they do and Ali says 100%. He’s in her ear and Kaela says he scares her. Ali says Johnny has go next week. Kaela says if Johnny uses that veto, maybe she’ll take a shot at Erica. Johnny heads to the throne room. He’s earned the right to pull down Ryan or Will or keep the nominees the same. This is his third veto and he would love to make a power move. Time is ticking in this game and the power move would be to save Will, but it could destroy his game. As for Ryan, everyone wants him out so to keep in the game and throw a bomb in everyone’s face would be hilarious. But whatever he decides will be for the big picture. He’s not playing week to week, he’s playing for the finals and if this week can help build his position for that, then he will go for it. It’s time for the POV Ceremony! Ryan speaks first and says in competition one mans victory is another man’s defeat. He won and Ryan didn’t and his game was on the line. His game is still on the line. Help him Johnny Mulder, he’s his only hope. Will says congratulations. He says if he doesn’t use the veto on him he’s going to come after him next week and send his ass out the door. All jokes aside, he trusts the decision he will make and all the HG to keep Big Willie safe and send Big Red out the door. Johnny has decided…not to use the POV. He realizes he has an opportunity to reach out a hand and bring one of them out of the darkness into safety. But when one hand pulls, another hand pushes and he doesn’t believe the benefits outweigh the risks. He feels like they are both great people and he wishes them the best of luck in their fight this week. Ryan’s head is down and he says this is going to be the toughest battle he’s faced yet if he wants to stay. Will is well liked and he is not. Will says even though everyone is telling him he’s safe and he’s a pawn, you still never feel 100% on the block. Especially when there are so many shady people in the house. Now that you know who’s up for eviction, Canada can save someone from eviction or keep the nominees as is. If they decide not to use it, then they will get one more chance to use it next week.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, the final Knock-Outs will be fought and the most difficult decisions will lead to second chances. But with two other steals left in play besides Kelly’s save and steal, anything can happen. The biggest night of Knock-Outs starts now! We start with Team Alicia and her advisor Chris Blue. Alicia has paired Britton Buchanan and Dallas Caroline. Britton is going to sing New York State of Mind by Billy Joel. Chris says Britton has a nice bluesy, soulful, out of this world swag. Britton tells Alicia he performs this in his shows and he plays piano so Alicia encourages him to play while he performs. Dallas is going to sing Bless the Broken Road by Rascal Flatts. Chris gives Dallas a few tips on the last couple of lines. Chris says vocally he thinks Dallas has a lot, but she’s young and there’s a lot more exploring she’s got to do. But Britton has something nice he’s working with. Alicia says the winner of the Knock-Out will be the one that wows them the most. Britton performs first at the keyboard. Adam says he loved that to Alicia at the end. Dallas is up next to perform. Adam says he couldn’t get Britton, but at least he wasn’t on Blake’s team. Adam says Dallas broke his heart also. He sees the progress in both of them, but he’d have to go with Britton. Blake says there is something pure about Dallas’s tone and he thinks she did a great job. Blake says every time Britton gets on stage he has a style that’s undeniable. Blake says if he had to choose he’d have to give it to his girl, Dallas. Kelly says Britton is almost like a really soulful crooner, he has an almost old school rat pack type thing. Kelly says Britton is a story teller and if she could just reign in that pitch when she’s pitchy, she thinks she could be really cool and represent something almost Dolly like. Alicia says Dallas did a beautiful job of listening to her tips. Alicia says Britton wanted to try something new and get more confident and he did that. She is proud of both of them. The winner of this knock-out is…Britton. We’re going to check-in with Team Kelly and her advisor, Cassadee Pope. Kelly has put D.R. King with Tish Haynes Keys. D.R. has chosen the song (I Know) I’m Losing You by Rod Stewart. Cassadee says he’s a beast. Kelly gives tips on breath control. Tish steps up and she has chosen to sing Lady Marmalade by LaBelle. Cassadee says being able to come back to The Voice is eye opening because they inspired her to get better because these two are so good. Kelly says she is 100% sure one of them will get stolen if she doesn’t pick them. D.R. steps up first to perform. Tish is up in the background while D.R. performs and is dancing and clapping. Kelly is on her feet as he finishes and Blake says what in the world? Tish steps up to perform next. All the judges are on their feet when Tish finishes and crowd loved it. Alicia says first of all…this is crazy! She is speechless. She loves D.R. He took that song to a whole other space, he has a magnificient voice. And then Tish! She had sass and flow and it was amazing, she loved it. Adam says D.R. took that Rod Stewart and he did a version that was different and in any other situation that would have been the illest thing he’s heard in his life, but then Tish comes along and ruins it. Adam says he loves Tish and he misses her. He thinks they are both beyond phenomenal and Kelly can’t go wrong. Blake says this is world class talent. He says D.R. every time he is on the stage he knows it will be exciting, but there’s Tish who comes in and it’s crazy. Kelly says they both equally killed it and she would dream of having a performance like that. The winner of this Knock-Out is…D.R. King. Kelly immediately hits her save button and Adam hits his button to steal. Carson says Tish is in a tough spot. Kelly says Tish was trying to show something different that she hasn’t been trying to do yet and she wants to be right there with her. Adam says Tish is one of the most fun, positive human beings and she really truly does have it all and he wants to push her to change it up. Carson says ok Tish, who’s your new coach. Tish says she loves Adam so much. Tish says she thinks she wants to take this to the top with her new coach. Tish remains on Team Kelly. Time to take a look at Team Blake and his advisor, Chloe Kohanski. Blake has paired Dylan Hartigan vs Wilkes. Dylan is going to sing You Are the Best Thing by Ray Lamontagne. Blake advises Dylan to project the entire performance and let it fly. Chloe tells him to be direct with the eyes. Wilkes is going to sing The Climb by Miley Cyrus. Chloe says Wilkes was soaring through those notes, he gave her chills and he’s making his own moment with that song. Blake says he likes to understand every lyric someone is singing so he advises him to make sure he does that. Blake says this is going to be a difficult decision for him. Dylan is up first to perform. The crowd seemed to enjoy the performance and Kelly gets on her feet and says he was showing his range. Wilkes is set to perform next. Adam, Kelly, and Alicia are on their feet. Kelly says she thought he was already there. When she saw the song she thought that was awesome. Kelly says she loves Dylan and he showed his range. Kelly would go with Dylan because he was on her team. Alicia says Dylan is super dynamic and he has energy about him where he wants to bring everyone along. And Wilkes he dialed it all the way back and then the music takes over him. Adam says Dylan gets noticed more and more every time he sings. And Wilkes is so crazy with his range and his tone. Adam would go with Wilkes, but Dylan is great. Blake says he thought they both did everything they could do. He says Dylan had a lot of personality and Wilkes, they are sure if he’s conscious between songs. The winner of this Knock-Out is Wilkes. Dylan thanks Blake for giving him another shot. Kelly looks at Blake and says she has so many guys. Blake says it’s tough but she has time. As Dylan is walking off Kelly hits her button. Kelly says she couldn’t let him go home. She says it’s turning out to be a guys club on Team KC. Now we’ll check in with Team Adam and his advisor, Jordan Smith. Adam has paired Gary Edwards vs Rayshun Lamarr. Gary is going to sing Many Rivers to Cross by Jimmy Cliff. Adam says this is an ambitious song to sing. Jordan tells Gary this is his first chance to show what he wants to be as an artist. Jordan says the important thing for Gary is not to worry about the technical aspects of the song and just have a moment on stage. Rayshun has chosen the song Fallin’ by Alicia Keys. Jordan says it’s a bit of a risk to sing an Alicia Keys song in front of Alicia, but that’s good for him. Adam says Rayshun’s voice just crackles and sizzles, it’s so good. Jordan just advises Rayshun to just go for it. Gary steps up first to perform. As he finishes Alicia cheers and Adam says church. Kelly says no pressure! Rayshun steps up to perform. Adam gets on his feet as Rayshun is performing and as he’s finishing all the judges are on their feet and Alicia looks impressed. Kelly says Rayshun is ballsy is heck. Kelly says his vocal was insane. Kelly says Gary’s low tones were like butter and she’d go with Gary. Blake says Rayshun was so full of energy, so full of passion, he’s full of it. And Gary sang the hell out of that song. Alicia thinks Gary did such a beautiful job, his tone is so pure. Alicia says Rayshun hit those notes! Adam says how funny is that? Alicia was wondering if you could hit those notes and you could! He’s glad Rayshun went for that and he has that fire. Adam says Gary came out today and that was a transformation because that was not happening in rehearsal. Carson says Adam, who is the winner of this Knock-Out and Adam says good question. Adam says the winner of this knock out is…Rayshun. Gary says this is musically the toughest thing he’s ever done. Adam says good things are going to happen to him because he’s a good person. Blake hits his button to steal and Gary looks stunned. Blake says he was excited to be able to use his steal for Gary. Gary has joined Team Blake. Next we have Team Kelly and she’s telling Cassadee about her next pairing and says they are totally different. Kelly has paired Alexa Cappelli vs Jorge Eduardo. Alexa has decided to sing Goodbye Yellow Brick Road by Elton John. Cassadee says it’s a big task to sing an Elton John song. For her to feel confident enough and strong enough to take that on is very telling. Kelly says she’s bold and super talented. Jorge has decided to sing Adorn by Miguel. Kelly says she didn’t know Jorge could sing like he sang today. Jorge says he isn’t sure about the falsetto at the end and Kelly says don’t you dare lose that and Cassadee says that was sick. Kelly says Jorge really went for some big stuff. She says the winner will come down to who can handle the pressure. Alexa steps up to perform first. Kelly gives an ovation as she finishes. Jorge is up to perform. Blake laughs and says that wasn’t fair because Jorge pointed at Kelly. Alicia says Jorge came out and was completely in his zone. She says Alexa has a really powerful voice and she made it feel effortless and she continued to surprise. She thinks Alexa took it. Adam says that was a good song for Jorge. Adam says Alexa is someone he has been noticing and she has potential and everything it takes to be an incredible singer. Blake says it’s undeniable when Jorge is on stage and he hears the reaction from the crowd. Blake says Alexa has an unusual sounding voice and it’s powerful and maybe she didn’t navigate the melody as well as she could have, but she’s one of the best singers in the competition. Kelly says she loves Jorge. She says even when he switched it up he’s still cool. Kelly says that was a crazy hard melody which was bold. The winner of this Knock-Out…keeps shocking her…is Alexa. As the night went on, Adam advanced Reid Umstattd, who sang Let Him Fly by Dixie Chicks, to the live playoffs, losing Jordyn Simone. Adam says he had to go with Reid because he has a connection with what he was singing. It’s time for our final pairing of the Knock-Outs from Team Alicia, Kelsea Johnson vs Sharane Calister. Kelsea is going to sing Rise Up by Andra Day. Chris advises Kelsea to not sing to him, but to talk to him. Kelsea says she’s a little nervous because she’s trying to make everyone proud. Chris tells her not to put that pressure on herself, Alicia picked her and she has nothing else to prove. Sharane has chosen the song All I Could Do Was Cry by Etta James. Chris says Sharane is a beast for sure. He can just sense through that song she’s gone through a lot, but he thinks there is more to her. Alicia says it’s scary to open up all of those feelings and Sharane says she needs to open up to the audience. Alicia says this Knock-Out is going to come down to whoever is ready to shed it all. Kelsea steps up to perform first. Alicia and Kelly both give an ovation for Kelsea. Sharane is ready to perform next. Sharane also gets an ovation from Alicia and Kelly. Adam says Sharane was so connected emotionally with what’s going on there is no turning back and she was great. Adam says Kelsea the only difference between close to perfect and perfect for her is belief. He doesn’t know if there’s a better in this knock-out, there are just two amazings. Kelly says with Kelsea she gets a little raspy and she shouldn’t get in her head about that because she still nailed it. And Sharane is one of the most emotional singers on the show and she has some kind of intensity. Blake says Sharane has those pops, like w-t-f. Blake says Kelsea has a voice like Chloe’s and Chloe figured out that’s what people like. Alicia says Kelly brought up something interesting and she sometimes there’s a wall between Sharane and the audience. Alicia says Kelsea has been in her head a lot and she sees so much in her and being able to break through. The winner of this Knock-Out is…Kelsea. Carson reminds the coaches Sharane is available to steal and Adam slaps his button. He says Sharane belongs on his team and he truly believes that. He believes he hasn’t the seen the best of her which is scary. Sharane has joined Team Adam. Next week, The Voice goes live and the power shifts to America!
  16. Coming up in the next hour if Ryan or Merron will be saved. And they have another bombshell to drop and Canada will be involved. Arisa says Merron the pawn has turned into Merron the target and new targets fall into the crosshairs. We pick up after the POV ceremony and Johnny hugs both nominees. Ryan says he’s still on the block next to Merron which has been death to those who have been there before. But he just needs to lay low. Erica says there are 8 votes this week and if there is a tie she will have to vote and she hopes it doesn’t come to that. Merron says he’s on the block next to Ryan who is too smart for his own good and he has to secure some key votes. Paras tells us so far the house has been unanimous in votes, but this week is different and you have to decide which side of the house you are on. Merron is talking to Kaela and telling her that Ryan is confident he is safe and Merron is going home. Kaela tells him Ryan is trying to get Merron to freak out and put a target on his back. Merron says he doesn’t freak out. Kaela says she is voting to keep Merron because she doesn’t trust Ryan. Kaela advises Merron to throw Ryan under the bus because people are saying he doesn’t talk game. Alejandra, Paras, and Olivia are talking and Ali is pitching voting Ryan out and Olivia is focusing on her leg muscles. Talk returns to who they should vote out and Ali says she needs Ryan out because he’s not good for any of their games and he’s cocky and arrogant, they just need to get him out. Ryan is sitting upstairs on a bench and Erica comes out of the HOH room and invites him in. Ryan says he needs to make sure he has Erica’s vote, even if he has to throw Kaela under the bus. Ryan says he thinks Erica wants Daela out and if she thinks Merron is working with them maybe she’ll vote him out. Ryan tells us he thinks he has Will, Paras, Maddy, and Johnny, as well as Erica if needed to vote for him to stay. Ryan wants to throw his apple away in her garbage and Erica asks him not to. Erica says this decision this week is not so cut and dry. She says keeping Ryan might be good because he’s an open book and his targets are not her. She says keeping Merron might be good because he’s proven not to be good at comps. Erica is talking to Johnny and Will about her thoughts on if Merron is working with Kaela and Derek and she doesn’t think Kaela would recruit Merron because she’s too smart to align herself with someone who can’t win a competition. As she’s talking, Merron, Kaela, and Derek sneak up to the HOH and come in to do a step routine. Erica says Merron is sleeping with the enemy right now. Arisa reminds Canada they can vote for which game to put in the HOH room each week. The HG love their game nights. Arisa then turns to the nominees and says we’ll check out their campaigns to stay. Kaela, Olivia, and Alejandra are talking in the red rose room. They are talking about what they would do if they were outside of the house. Olivia says hang out with family, watch a movie, and go to her favorite restaurant…and find a guy to sleep with. They look at Kaela and she says maybe in jury. Kaela says Derek hasn’t even French kissed her yet. Ryan and Paras are talking in the white rose room and they are talking about her home life and family and how she grew up. Her family moved from Iran and they were permanent residents of Canada for three years and then they became Canadian citizens. She loves the people in Canada, the open mindedness, and how people are so kind. Paras says coming from a religious background and conservative family but having liberal ideas it’s hard to find a balance. She wonders what her family is thinking watching her in the BB house because it’s important to her to make the two most important people in her life proud. Erica and Johnny are talking in the storage room and they are discussing who Maddy and Will are voting for and if they’d vote the other way. Erica says up to this point she’s been trying to keep the peace between the power duos of Daela and Ali and Olivia, but she’s going to have start burning bridges soon and keeping Ryan will light some fires. Erica tells Johnny if the vote is four-four she will be voting to keep Ryan. Merron is stressing about this vote and he has to talk to Erica because if there is a tie, she will be the tie-breaker vote. Erica tells Merron she wants to be honest with him. With Ryan she knows where his target is aimed, but with Merron she has absolutely no idea. Merron pitches working with Erica if she keeps him in the house. Merron tells Erica how confident Ryan is and Erica says she doesn’t understand how someone so smart can be so dumb. Erica says she hates that at this point it feels like it’s out of her control. Ryan and Merron are in the red rose room and Merron says he’s doing a bad job of campaigning. Ryan says it will either happen or it won’t. Merron wants to know why Ryan is still talking to him and acting like they are friends and it pisses him off that Ryan feels so safe. Ryan and Merron talk about how they aren’t at each other’s throats. Ryan leaves and Merron talks to himself and says Ryan is all talk and he’s too obvious. Merron says he’s walking around the house so confident. Merron says he is at Ryan’s throat, he just doesn’t want him to know that. This season started with 8 independent, opinionated strong women. Now there are 6 left and it’s clear they are running the show. Johnny says he loves women, they run the world. Olivia says the women are stronger than the men in the house. Hamza has said Paras has some game. They say Kaela is smart and Alejandra is so strong. Erica says Maddy has proven to be a strong woman and Ryan talks about Olivia being dangerous, he thinks she’s the smartest. It’s time to head back inside to see who wants it more, Merron or Ryan. Erica and Kaela are talking and Kaela says she loves have Erica for a friend, but they don’t see eye to this week. She needs to make Erica see that Ryan is not good for her game. Kaela says Ryan will be a threat in comps that require intelligence, where Merron won’t. Kaela says it’s starting to feel like there are fractures in the alliance and she needs to rally everyone and get them on the same page…her page. Kaela, Olivia, and Alejandra all talk about getting rid of Ryan and Kaela says Ryan has a better chance at making an alliance than Merron. Alejandra says Ryan needs to go. Paras tells Ali that Ryan heard her say they can’t trust that b*tch and she needs to get to the bottom of it. She talks to Ali and Ali says it didn’t happen, that it’s false. Ali says Ryan talks to much and he needs to get his butt out of the door. Ali goes to Erica and Will and says she’s going to call out Ryan and she wants them to have her back. Johnny, Will, Erica, Maddy, and Ali are in the white rose room and Paras comes in with Ryan and Ali confronts him. Ryan says he knows he heard her say and she wants to know who she said it about. Ryan says well he doesn’t think she’d call a man a b*tch, so by process of elimination it had to be Paras. Ali says she didn’t say that and Ryan made an assumption. Ryan says she’s been trying to get him out all week and Ali says so you’re making an assumption of an assumption? Ryan says he believes what he heard and Ali says she’s done walks out. Ryan asks the rest of the room if they are ok and things are uncomfortable. As we go to commercial, Arisa tells us she’s going to make another announcement that involves Canada keeping someone safe. It’s time to head inside for a few surprises and eviction votes. Arisa goes over what the winner of Big Brother Canada will win. She says she knows who stressful and long the weeks seem and she let’s them know they are proud of her. Arisa but they still manage to have fun and she shows them various clips of them goofing around. Arisa says the time for fun and games is over for now. Ryan gets to speak first and he thanks his wife and son and he can’t wait to see them and his boss. He’s lost 28 pounds and gained 15 new best friends and he can’t wait to have them as HG in his own home. Whatever the results of the vote today he’s enjoyed his experience. Merron gives shout outs to those at home. He says people want to know who his targets are and this is their chance to figure it out. If they vote for him to stay, then they will have his 100% loyalty. It’s time to vote. Derek votes to evict Ryan. Kaela votes to evict Ryan. Johnny votes to evict Merron. Maddy votes to evict Merron. Paras votes to evict Merron. Alejandra votes to evict Ryan. Will votes to evict Merron. Olivia votes to evict Merron. By a vote of 5-3 Merron has been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. As Merron leaves he tells them he and Veronica were voted in by Canada and they just got rid of Canada’s boy. Arisa says Canada voted him but why couldn’t he win a comp? Merron says it pains him so much, he apologizes for letting them down. He feels so blessed to be there and so grateful. Arisa says people were strategizing all around him, why did it take him so long to talk game, where’s his killer instinct? Merron says it must have been missing. He didn’t want to go too aggressive and he just didn’t trust anyone. Derek is going to miss his energy and Olivia says he’s a great guy and this gam just wasn’t for him. Alejandra says she tried to save him but it wasn’t enough and she will be seeking revenge. Ryan says it sucked they were on the block together and any campaigning he had to do was strictly game. Erica says on a personal level it sucks he had to go, but she can’t win a game of chess with a board full of pawns. Kaela says he was one of her best friends in the house and it’s going to suck without him. It’s time to find a new HOH. It’s called buttoned up. They will reach up and push the button above them and keep it held. When they let go, they are out of the competition. There is also a temptation and the first HG to hit their button for the temptation will win it, but they will be eliminated from the competition. There will be no have-nots this week, but for every 5 minutes they are in the competition, they will be on slop for 1 hour. Paras switches her arms already. All HG look strong to start and Ryan asks if anyone has any good stories. Paras says her arm is already falling asleep. Arisa tells Canada that they will have the opportunity to save one HG next week. After Wednesday’s show they will be able to vote to save a nominee or leave the nominees the same. If they leave them the same, they will get ONE more chance to save a nominee the following week.
  17. We pick up after the nomination ceremony. Erica says she chose to nominate Ryan because he’s not popular with most of the HG and she’s trying to switch gears from making big moves to smaller moves. She nominated Merron because he’s bee a great pawn and those types of people get taken to the end and she can’t have that. Merron says this is his third time on the block and he feels nothing but frustration at this point and he has no one to blame but himself. Ryan says back to back nominations and he feels a little more comfortable this time. He thinks Erica has his back and wants Merron to go home, but you can never fully trust anyone in this house. Erica and Ryan talk and she tells him he’s a pawn and Ryan says Merron might be trying to pawn it to the end. Ryan’s only concern is if Merron wins veto and he thinks if Merron comes down she has to make a big move or he will go home against almost anyone. Olivia and Alejandra are talking and they are discussing pulling Merron in. Olivia tells us her and Ali have become a power due and they will stop at nothing to win this game. Ali is concerned about Ryan’s relationship with Erica and he might be loyal to her, but Merron will be a number for Olivia and Ali because he has no one. Merron is in the red rose room talking to himself. He says Erica has been having the best Big Brother experience and he’s having the worst. He’s hitting his head lightly against the wall and saying he needs to win the veto over and over. He says he needs to win the veto because he doesn’t think anyone will pull him off the block. Paras comes in and tries to pump Merron up. Merron says it really makes him angry that Erica put him up again. He wants to get off the block and do some crazy crap. Paras says he’s a really nice guy and if she’s nice to him and gives him attention and he stays he might want to work with her. She’s pumping him up and saying he can do it and Canada’s rooting for him. It’s time to pick players for the POV competition! Erica draws Alejandra. Merron draws Maddy. Ryan draws Johnny. Erica chooses the host as Paras. Ryan and Merron talk and Ryan says he doesn’t want to be nasty to each other and Merron agrees but says it’s still him vs Ryan. Ryan isn’t sure what kind of comp it will be and he’s working on shaking Merron’s confidence. He says he’s ready to win and Maddy will be motivated to win because she’s 0 for 9. Ryan says Erica might want to win it so she can do something like she did with Veronica. Ryan tells us Merron is a confident kid, but there’s some self-doubt and he’s going to keep poking at it. Ryan says he’s a nice guy, but at this point it’s him or Merron and he needs to shake him. It’s time for the veto competition and Alejandra is up first. They’re playing a game called Skip the Dishes and they have to scroll through ten orders on a tablet and deliver the food. If someone answers they are correct. But if someone answers and they don’t deliver the correct order, then they will have to try again. If no one answers they are incorrect and will have to try again. However, some of the orders have important information missing so they may have to scroll through the orders to get more information. The winner will win veto and $5,000. Alejandra goes first and she seemed to do pretty well. Maddy is next and she begins by scrolling through the orders and seems to be off to a slow start. Maddy goes to make her first delivery of a pizza, but doesn’t take it out of the bag and it gets handed back. She tries again and is still wrong. She finally realizes she has to take the pizza out of the bag. She completes her deliveries. Johnny is up next and he says he uses Skip the Dishes all the time at the home. He seems to be off to a good start and he says he’s not worried about time right now, he just wants to get everything right. He wants to win to protect his people and have some control. He finishes. Erica is up next and she wants to win because she put up her nominations for a reason and she doesn’t want them to change. She seemed to do well. Merron is up next. Merron feels like he will be faster than most of the people in the competition. He seems to get off a good start but then tries to make a delivery to the wrong address. He then switches the item thinking that’s what is wrong and he is wrong. He decides to skip it and go back. He does well with all of the rest of his deliveries and goes back to the one he skipped. He’s still trying to figure out what’s wrong with the order. He’s getting frustrated and says he doesn’t know what he’s missing and they highlight the worst “Use the Door Knocker”, which will help him with the address that is missing. Merron is still looking at the screen of the tablet and finally realizes his mistake. He’s frustrated and runs to make his delivery and buzzes in to stop his time. He is frustrated and is talking to himself asking why he rushed. He says he’s never been more disappointed himself. Ryan is up and he’s ready to take this one. Ryan says when he was younger he had a paper route and that experience will help with this. He says he wouldn’t have been able to do this two weeks ago and he’s dropped about 20 pounds since he’s been in the house and this is the competition where his exercise will pay off. He finishes and says he’s proud of his time because he ran every step. Paras is ready to reveal the times. The HG with the worst time of 11:23 is Maddy. Merron came in fifth and Ryan came in fourth. The winner with a time of 5:44 is Johnny. He has won the POV and a $5,000 gift card from Skip the Dishes. Merron says having the POV slipping through his fingers sucks. He doesn’t want Canada to feel like he is letting them down. He’s in the white rose room talking to himself and he says at least he wasn’t last. He’s done beating himself down, he’s over it. It is what it is. Olivia tells Johnny she wishes she could have watched him do that competition that fast. She tells Johnny she can’t understand why Erica wants Merron out over Ryan. Olivia wants to convince Johnny to use the veto on Merron to ensure Ryan goes home, but she’s trying to be subtle about it. Olivia can see that Johnny’s gears are turning and thinking about it and that’s exactly what she wanted. Erica has invited Merron, Alejandra, and Kaela to play Speak Out with her in the HOH room. Kaela says the three hardest letters to say are the B’s, R’s, and T’s. Ali says when Kaela can’t pronounce the word her eyes get really big. Erica says this game is comedy gold. Kaela and Ali won. Erica says that game was so fun. Ryan, Will, and Maddy are all outside talking and they are talking about how long they’ve been there already. Maddy says it’s the halfway point of the game. Will says it just makes you realize how close you are to winning and how that money could change your life. Will and Alejandra are talking about what they would do with the money in the HOH room while Will is listening to music. Ali wants to help her parents and pay off their debt and hers, but if she doesn’t get it, she’d like to see Will get it for Parker. She tells Will he’s a good dad. Johnny and Merron are in the white rose room talking. Merron would love for Johnny to use the veto on him. Johnny tells us Merron gets some points for asking him directly, and that’s what he wanted to hear. Merron says Johnny can trust him and he’s not gunning for him. Merron says if he stays this week he’d love to work with him. Johnny tells us Merron is saying Johnny can trust him, but Big Brother says 101 is you can’t trust anyone. Johnny says he needs to make sure if he uses the veto it’s the right time. He doesn’t want to jeopardize his game if he uses it. He wants to gauge the temperature of the house before making a decision. If he wants to use it, then he has to get Olivia and Alejandra on board because he realizes they are a voting block and will back him. Olivia says at least Johnny is thinking about using it, which is great for her and Ali because it means they are on the same page. Will comes in with Olivia and Alejandra and Johnny wants to know if they should take a shot at Daela. Will says if that’s what he wants to do. Johnny says they are on board, but he needs to talk to Ryan and see where his head is at. Ryan wants Johnny to use it on him and take out a big target. Johnny says Ryan is only worried about saving himself, but he has to worry about Erica because she might put up the wrong replacement. Johnny says he’s talked to everyone in the house, but now he has to talk to Erica because she’s the most important because she is the one who has to name the nominee. Johnny asks Erica if she would take a shot at Daela. Erica says she feels like they are on an island by themselves. Johnny questions that. Erica says she’d probably put up Maddy because she’s not as workable as some of the other people. But then Erica says Daela is smarter than they are letting on, Kaela is definitely smarter than people think. Johnny wants to use the veto but he needs to make sure it lands on Daela and not one of his allies. Johnny heads to the throne room to decide if he’s going to use his veto. He could use the veto and roll the dice and see if Erica puts up a bigger target, but he’s not sure she will and he’s not sure what to do. It’s time for the veto ceremony. Ryan says in a game where people’s word doesn’t necessarily mean they are truthful, but he thinks he’s proven to certain people that he is loyal and he thinks that might be important for Johnny. Merron says he understands Johnny may be concerned if he uses veto on him he will get blood on his hands, but they can be blood brothers and work together moving forward and if not he respects his decision. Johnny has chosen…not to use the power of veto. While he’d love to be the hero and swoop down and save one of them, he has to do what’s best for his game and he thinks this is the best decision for him right now. Merron says this puts him directly in the danger zone. That veto was his last hope to give him safety and he has no choice but to dig deep to stay in this game. Ryan says Johnny chose to leave him on the block so he has to go into full scramble mode to stay in the game. Johnny says he wanted to use veto, but the timing just wasn’t right to make a big move. But Evil Johnny is lurking inside of him waiting for the right time to come out.

    Tonight, it takes a champion to make a champion. Chloe Kohanski, Chris Blue, Jordan Smith, and Cassadee Pope will help the teams create some of the most memorable knock-out performances of the season. Leaving one coach looking to save an artist, while our other coaches hope to steal. The biggest round of Knock-Outs yet continues…right now! Let’s look at Team Kelly’s first pairing of the night, Brynn Cartelli and Jamella. Brynn is going to sing Here Comes Goodbye by Rascal Flatts. Cassadee says she was completely blown away by Brynn, she put her heart and soul into the lyrics. Kelly says every time Brynn opens her mouth she is floored. Cassadee says Brynn’s tone is great but advises her to work on the last goodbye. Jamella has chosen the song Girl Crush by Little Big Town. Cassadee says the song choice is really bold and what Jamella did with it is really special. Kelly tells Jamella to make sure there are big notes in there because she’s trying to get to the next level in the competition. Kelly says this is going to be really tough, maybe she’ll use her save on this one. Brynn is up first. Adam and Alicia look impressed and Kelly gives a standing ovation as Brynn finishes. Brynn steps up to perform. Jamella also gets an ovation from Kelly Clarkson. Alicia says Jamella really has a style about her, a flow and a vibe that’s really cool. Alicia says Brynn continues to impress and she has a maturity beyond her years. They both did a beautiful job. Adam says for Brynn to be as good as she is at her age is remarkable. Adam says Jamella, it’s a tough one, he’d have to go with Brynn, but they are both awesome, amazing, and they both did a great job. Blake says interesting song choices. Blake says Jamella took that song and put her spin on it which is notable and Brynn, the vibrato in her voice is one of the favorite things he’s heard this season, it’s awesome. Kelly says Jamella really does bring more and more of her A game and she has such an emotional connection to the songs that you can’t teach people. Kelly says Brynn, she was so excited by the song choice and it was insane. She says they both did a great job. The winner of this Knock-Out is…Brynn. Let’s check-in with Team Blake’s next pairing, Jaron Strom and Pryor Baird. Jaron is going to perform the song Grenade by Bruno Mars. Chloe says Jaron has stage charisma and movement and he knows exactly what he wants to do as an artist. Blake gives tips on his notes. Pryor is going to sing Will It Go Round in Circles by Billy Preston. Blake is glad he chose this song because it shows where he wants to go at an artist. Chloe gives Pryor advice on how to have a moment and pull the audience in. Blake says the winner of this battle is going to come down to whoever owns the stage and puts their best foot forward, and gets the audience going. Pryor is up first with his guitar. Kelly and Alicia look at each other and nod their heads. As Pryor finishes, Kelly says the audience is going to start throwing bras or something. Jaron steps up next and the crowd seemed to enjoy his performances. Kelly says she loves Pryor’s tone and Jaron has a growl, and she digs him as well. Alicia says she was just impressed that Pryor’s range was that diverse and it’s cool to embody that energy, and with Jaron maybe he was too concerned with getting the crowd brought in than the delivering the song. Adam says they are both talented, but he’d probably go with Pryor because he’s more ready. Blake says Jaron likes to move around on stage and sometimes it feels like he’s trying to release some nervous energy. Blake says he knows it’s hard for Pryor not to start at the top of his range and him working on that, it really paid off this time. Blake says he hates this part of his job, but the winner is…Pryor. We’re ready for Team Alicia’s first pairing of the night, Christiana Danielle and Terrence Cunningham. Christiana is going to sing Elastic Heart by Sia. Alicia says this is a cool song for her because it’s her first time not singing worship music. Chris says he felt like chocolate under a hot lamp, she has a way of sucking you in to every single word. Terrence is going to perform Tell Me Something Good by Rufus and Chaka Khan. Alicia says Terrence has this mysterious, ethereal style and he needs to continue to show them who he is and evolve. Chris tells him when he was there he realized the nice guy had to go and Alicia pushed him. Chris says this Knock-Out is going to be a crazy fight and he can’t wait to watch it. Christiana takes the stage first. Christiana is excited as she finishes and the crowd seemed to appreciate the performance. Terrence is up next and he’s behind the keyboard. As Terrence performs, Kelly gets out of her seat and says oh, my, God. Adam says so much to talk about, holy crap. Adam says Christiana was great since the blind auditions, but there’s still more and she’s going to be fantastic. Adam says he can’t believe what was going on with Terrence’s upper register and this decision is terrible and he’s glad he doesn’t have to make it. Kelly says it was the perfect song, the style, how Terrence did it. It moved her. Kelly says Christiana is insane and the intensity in her eyes is so captivating and she thinks they are both equally talented. Blake says he’s a fan of Christiana’s and he thinks it was more of a challenge for her in the first verse and Terrence is pretty good. Alicia says Christiana is so special and this song was done to express a part of her story and that’s what artist’s do. Alicia then says Terrence sang that in the original Chaka Khan key and that was wonderful. She says they are both magnificent and the winner is…Terrence. Christiana is available to steal and Alicia immediately hits her button to Save her and says there is no winner here. Kelly then hits her button to steal. Kelly says Alicia didn’t pick you! Carson says she can stay loyal and stay with Alicia or switch teams now to Kelly. Kelly says she’s loved her in the blinds and she thinks she’s incredible. Kelly says she grew up in church too and she thinks it would be fun to experience new songs with her. Adam goes and slaps his button to steal as well. Blake stands up to watch and says this is about to get good. Adam says he had to press so she knew that she was incredibly talented and she deserves all three of them to be fighting for her. Alicia says it would be devastating for her to lose Christiana and asks her to please stay. Carson says she can go back home or try a new team. Christiana says she picks…Alicia. Christiana remains on Team Alicia.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, for the first time ever, our coaches will call on four Voice champions to help their teams prepare for the most crucial and competitive Knock-Outs yet. Kelly Clarkson brought back Cassadee Pope, Adam Levine has Jordan Smith, Alicia Keys has Chris Blue, and Blake Shelton brought in his latest champion, Chloe Kohanski. Our advisors know the importance of choosing the right song, they know what it takes to face their own teammate, and how a second chance can change everything. In a new twist to the Knock-Outs we’ve added the Save which gives each coach one chance to keep a deserving artist on their team. But with the steals in play, the artist can go with a different coach. America get ready for the Knock-outs. Let’s check in with Team Blake and his advisor, Chloe Kohanski. Blake paired Jaclyn Lovey and Kyla Jade because they are both equally powerful in their own ways. Kyla has chosen the song You Don’t Own Me by Lesley Gore. Chloe says Kyla is a tiger of a woman. Everything she did was so intentional and there is such a large presence in her voice. Blake says she needs to figure out what she’s going to do with the ending. Jaclyn has chosen the song Put Your Records On by Corrine Bailey Rae. Blake says she’s really afraid to let it fly and it’s keeping her in a box almost. Blake says she has to be believe she’s a great singer. Chloe says she has a beautiful voice, it’s jazzy, yet modern. Blake says this Knock-Out round will come down to whoever has the most confidence and Kyla has to step into the role of being front and center and Jaclyn has to shake her nerves off. Jaclyn takes the stage first and Kelly says she likes her. Adam says it’s amazing and Alicia agrees. Kyla steps up to perform and Kelly notes Kyla has her hands on her hips. They get an ovation from all four judges. Adam says there has be no stranger pairing in the history of the Voice. Adam says Jaclyn is the sweetest most beautiful and Kyla was incredible. Kelly says she loves that song that Kyla performed and she’ll be singing in her shower tonight. Kelly says Jaclyn has a great head voice. Alicia loved how Jaclyn just performed and Kyla says they just all died. Carson turns to Blake and Blake says the song Jaclyn chose allowed him to learn something about her and her voice is so good. Blake says he feels like Kyla is beginning to own the stage. Carson asks for the winner. Blake says he appreciates them both and the winner of this Knock-Out is…Kyla. Jaclyn thanks Blake and she’s appreciative of working with two incredible coaches. Blake says Kyla won because she made them feel something. Time to look at Team Kelly and her advisor, Cassadee Pope. Kelly has paired Justin Kilgore with Kaleb Lee because they are her two country people and she’s thinking of strategy. Justin is going to sing Shameless by Billy Joel in the style of Garth Brooks. Cassadee says there is this awesomeness to his voice that is kind of scratchy, but when he’s singing in his high register she felt he was struggling. Cassadee says she felt he was captivating but was pushing and he just needs confidence. Kaleb Lee has decided to perform Free by Zac Brown Band. Cassadee says those big notes were so tasteful and Kelly says she wants one more money spot. Cassadee says this Knock-Out will be really tough and she hopes Justin settles his nerves and Kaleb is a true artist. She says there is a lane for both of them in country music and she’ll bring them on tour if they want. Kaleb takes the stage first to perform with his guitar. Adam says he likes it. Blake looks at Kelly and says wow. Justin then steps up to perform. Alicia says Justin showed more of his range and Kaleb continues to show he’s a force to be reckoned with. Adam says they are choosing their own songs so they are putting themselves out there. Adam says he was trying to figure out who Justin was and Kaleb is the real deal, there is something purely country about him. Blake says he’s going to come to Justin’s defense because he did the Garth Brooks version of that song and it’s kind of an intense. Blake says at the same time he was lost somewhere in the middle of both versions and he thinks nerves got to him. Blake says his biggest regret this season was letting him go, especially now after seeing him perform like that. Kelly says she is a fan of Justin’s voice and he’s been working on his nerves and he was less nervous this time. Kelly says she looked at Blake and he’s stupid for letting Kaleb go. Kelly says based on the Knock-Out performance, the winner is…Kaleb. Kelly apologizes and Justin says he had an incredible experience and he’s honored just to have been picked for her team. Let’s check out Team Adam and his advisor, Jordan Smith. Adam has paired Jackie Foster and Mia Boostrom and he thinks this will be his toughest decision. Jackie has chosen the song Bring Me To Life by Evanescence. Adam says the quiet parts of the song are the hard parts and Jordan says he thinks it’s going to be important for her not to give away all the power of her voice the entire song. Jordan would like to see her show he has two sides to her voice, the tender and beautiful and the belting and powerful side. Mia has decided to sing Wade in the Water by Eva Cassidy. Jordan says Mia brought out the soul of someone much older than she is. Adam says Mia was a one-chair turn and the other coaches are not going to believe they slept on this one. Adam advises her to go big at the end and Jordan tells her to commit to everything she is doing. Jackie steps up first to perform. The judges seemed to enjoy her performance. Mia steps up to sing next. Adam is on his feet before Mia finishes. Blake tells them great job. Blake says Jackie is as good as it gets and Mia is the surprise and that performance was brilliant and he’d go with Mia. Kelly says Jackie has this crazy range and Mia is a dark horse for her and she doesn’t think Adam can go long, but she’d go with Jackie. Alicia says Jackie’s voice got stronger and strong and the places she can go with her voice is very fresh and Mia, it was exciting to hear a warm passionate voice. Alicia would pick Jackie. Adam says Mia was going to be the big surprise and Jackie did an incredible job with that song and he truly believes this is a tie because they are both talented enough to be in the finale. The winner of this Knock-Out is…Mia. Kelly immediately hits her button to steal Jackie and Adam hits his save button. Kelly says Jackie should come back home to her team. Blake then hits his button to steal. Adam says they are just messing with him and Jackie told him she thought he could help her with rock and roll music. Kelly knew one of them was going to get stolen and Adam is a great coach, but home is nice. Blake says Adam was faced with which one of the two was he unwilling to walk away and risk the other and that’s what happened. Blake says out of the three coaches that pushed their button, he is the only one that hasn’t kicked her out of the house and he’s the guy that wants to take her to the live shows. Alicia then hits her button. Adam is shaking his head and tells her not to make the wrong decision. Alicia says she didn’t want to be left out because this is so exciting. Alicia says when Blake used the line he never kicked her out, well she didn’t either and she turned for her in the blinds and she tried to steal at the battles. Carson says this is an incredible moment for Jackie and who does she choose as her coach. Jackie hesitates…the coach that she picks…is Alicia! Jackie has joined Team Alicia. Let’s meet Blake’s next Knock-Out pairing, Austin Giorgio and Spensha Baker. He paired them because they both are very specific in knowing what they want to do. Austin has opted to sing Almost Like Being in Love by Nat King Cole. Chloe says his voice is so rich and smooth, like caramel. Chloe advises him to not sing the song like anyone else, it’s his song. Chloe says he has an incredible gift and embodies the spirit of the people he looks up to and that’s so cool. Spensha is going to perform Broken Halos by Chris Stapleton. Blake thinks this is a great song choice for Spensha. Blake says she’s quick to fall off of notes and advises her to hold out a bit longer. Chloe says it has to be a wave of a dynamic and the last one should be at a 10. Chloe says both Spensha and Austin are unique and you never know what can happen in a pairing like this. Austin performs first. He plays to the crowd and they love it. Blake looks at Kelly after Austin finishes and says what am I going to do here? Spensha steps up to perform next. Kelly says that was so good, that soulful vibe and that country thing, she can’t wait to buy Spensha’s album. Kelly says she loves Austin’s confidence. Alicia appreciates how Austin uses the stage and talks to the audience, and Spensha getting emotional is very telling how she feels about this moment in her life. She’d go with Spensha. Adam says Austin is so pure in his intention, but he’d like to see a bad boy side, something to make them wonder what he’s up to. Adam says there is so much undiscovered in Spensha and with Blake as her coach it’s an explosive combination. Blake says we’re down to the best of the best and this is a tough one for him. Blake says Austin has a passion for entertaining and Spensha has a connection with a song. Blake says stylistically he is a fan of both of them, but the winner of this Knock-Out is…Spensha. Carson gives Austin a chance to speak to his coach and Austin thanks Blake for his time and consideration and he’s really like what people say behind closed doors. Blake says he’s one of a kind and he’s not letting him go and hits his Save button. Carson says Austin, your coach just used his one and only save on him and Austin thanks him so much. It’s time for our first look at Team Alicia and her advisor, Chris Blue. Alicia has paired Johnny Bliss and Miya Bass because they both have big voices and big personalities. Johnny has decided to sing Alive by Sia. Chris says Johnny had this nice soft texture to his voice and he immediately became drawn in to his story. Chris tells Johnny he should be so lost in the song, in the story, he should be barely breathing. Miya has selected the song Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran. Chris says when she hits the line I’m on my way, she needs to go there. Chris says Miya attacks the stage with love and joy and she may come out on top. Chris says Johnny needs to remind himself of why he’s there and what he’s been through. Johnny takes the stage to perform first. The coaches seemed to enjoy the performance. Miya takes the stage to perform. Adam says Johnny Bliss has a dynamic voice and he’s amazing. Adam says the song might have presented Miya some problems but he’s always rooting for her. Blake says Johnny stayed on point, especially with that song. Blake would like to see Johnny get back to the fun stuff. Blake agrees with Adam about Miya and he’d give this one to Johnny. Kelly says she wishes Miya would have gone somewhere different because of her voice and it’s potential. Kelly says Johnny was cool and she liked him doing something serious. Alicia says Miya’s runs are beautiful and this song put her in another space and Johnny poured everything into that performance and it was so emotional. The winner of this Knock-Out is…Johnny Bliss. We go back to Team Adam and his advisor Jordan for the pairing of Drew Cole and Jackie Verna. Adam says they are very different, but this is a battle for who has the most potential going forward. Drew is going to sing Slow Hands by Niall Horan. Adam says he has a beautiful old school feeling to his voice combined with modern ideas. Jordan says the Knock-Outs are a really important week and you have to have a certain swag with this song. Jordan loves his voice but he has to find moments where he really shines. Jackie is going to perform American Honey by Lady Antebellum. Adam says Jackie’s voice is unknown potential. Jordan advises her to make sure the lower notes are really supported. Jordan says Jackie has the sweetest voice and it’s important for her to stay in the story and pull the audience in with her. Adam says Jackie gets more confident every day. Drew steps up first with his guitar to sing first. Jackie performs next. Blake says it’s good to see artists get on the stage and realize what this moment is and this is pretty evenly matched. Blake says Drew has things about his style that makes him think Adam might be leaning towards him, but Jackie is a country artist and Adam has a weird fetish about beating him with a country artist. Kelly says Drew has a really cool voice and Jackie has a quality that is pure and angelic and she has a huge voice. Alicia thinks Drew’s voice is really special and Jackie has a pure tone and at the end she got really powerful too, which is cool. Adam says he loves them both very much and they both made great strides. The winner of this Knock-Out is…Jackie. Drew is available to save or steal and Adam hits his save. Blake hits his steal button. Blake says Drew is an incredible vocalist and musician and a true artist. Blake says this is the second time he has hit button for Drew and he has never turned his back on him. Adam says he’s pushed his button twice, and if they want to have a button pushing contest, it’s a dead tie. Adam says he’s one of his favorites on his team. Carson says it’s up to Drew…who does he pick as his coach. Drew says he’s been conflicted with this decision before…this is crazy…but he’s a loyal man…he picks Adam…again!
  20. We come back and everyone is still outside with Merron and Olivia talking. We go inside and Ryan does remove himself from the block. Olivia names Hamza as the replacement nominee. It’s time for speeches. Merron says he won’t campaign against him. Hamza says the same. If they want to keep him, then keep him. If they want to get rid of him through the backdoor fair game. It’s time to vote. Maddy votes to evict Hamza. Johnny votes to evict Hamza. Erica votes to evict Merron. Kaela votes to evict Hamza. Derek votes to evict Hamza. Will votes to evict Hamza. Paras votes to evict Hamza. Ali votes to evict Hamza. Ryan votes to evict Hamza. By a vote of 8-1, Hamza has been evicted. As Hamza leaves he stops and says everyone, shout out Caroline. Everyone does. Arisa says Hamza was incredible to watch and he made some special connections and his vote came from Erica, she was devastated. Hamza says Erica is an amazing person and Merron is one of the most amazing people he’s ever met. Arisa asks who his pick to win is and he says Erica or Merron.
  21. We pick up after the veto ceremony. Maddy tells us she is safe and for one of the first times in her whole life, she is speechless. Veronica is totally pissed off. Erica made it seem like she was a phony and a liar. There is only one thing she can do and that’s go to war and rally as many troops as she can. Erica says that was an A+ backdoor and she feels like the baddest B in the house and she just reminded them. Merron is dumbstruck he and Veronica are on the block together. Veronica tells Will and Merron if you take a shot at me, you better not miss. She came here to play. Olivia and Alejandra are talking and they are glad they weren’t the ones to have to do it. Alejandra tells us the best thing is she and Olivia orchestrated the whole thing and the best thing is she’s wanted Veronica out since she stepped foot in the house. Maddy tells us this is her game and Veronica lost. Erica and Hamza are talking and Hamza says that was great. He says he has Erica until the end and all they have to do is get one more big target out and they can sail to the end. Hamza says he has mad respect for Erica. He’s so happy. He tells Erica she gave him a shot of adrenaline. Paras goes in to talk to Veronica and Veronica says she has mixed emotions. Paras tells her she has to campaign hard. Veronica says she’s going to and if she stays she’s going to wreak havoc in the house and if she stays she’s gunning for Erica. Johnny comes in and says he’s counted the votes and he doesn’t know how she’ll do it. Veronica it just starts with you or Will and if she stays come Thursday she’s starting a war. Former Big Brother Canada player, Cassandra stopped by the house this week for a makeover. Let’s take a look at their “hair raising” good time! She goes around and wakes everyone up. Merron thought he was dreaming. Cassandra tells them it’s makeover day and the guys will be giving the girls an 80s makeover. The winning team will receive a $2000 cash prize and a years worth of L’Oreals. Cassandra sends the ladies upstairs. After they leave, Cassandra informs the guys there is a twist…they have to do the WORST makeover for the win. Erica did not participate because she’s the HOH. They do a catwalk with all of the ladies. Cassandra then informed the ladies of the twist and she chooses the winners as Veronica and Johnny and they also win a dinner for two. Erica is their waitress and shows them into the red rose room. Johnny gives a toast to Veronica. Hamza tells us it’s been awhile since Erica put Veronica on the block and things are getting boring. He says it’s time for your boy to create some chaos. Hamza is encouraging Veronica to call people out at a house meeting and she can leave with her head high. She says it’s a good idea, she’s pumped. Hamza tells us he’s here to stir the pot and everyone should get their popcorn ready. Veronica calls everyone to the living room and she says she has nothing to lose and she’s pretty angry right now. There’s a lot of people being fake to her and telling her things she wants to hear. Veronica says if you want me out of the house then stop being fake and tell me. She says if you choose to keep me she’ll have their back and she’s the only one with something to give. She says use her as a shield in the house and stop acting like they are at summer camp. Veronica says they have a girl on the block who can be in their corner and they need to keep her in the house. Paras says that was really intense and she might have to keep Veronica around because she’s a huge target and she can hide behind her. Paras makes a pitch to Maddy and Maddy doesn’t seem on board. Paras says Veronica would not come for her and Maddy before some of the others. Maddy says Veronica could be a tool to go after Erica and that could be useful for her game. Paras tells Maddy they really have to think this one out. It’s time to head into the living room. Merron gets to speak first and he says he’s not ready to see his family yet and he’s humbled to be sitting next to such a strong woman and he loves Veronica and everyone. Veronica says she loves Will and she wouldn’t be surprised if she walked out the door because everyone is sheep and she’s the big bad wolf and she’d hunt them all down and probably win. If they have to get her out then so be it, but she’ll be the one sitting at home saying baaaaaaa witches. It’s time to vote. Derek votes to evict Veronica. Olivia votes to evict Veronica. Will votes to evict Merron. Hamza votes to evict Veronica. Kaela votes to evict Veronica. Paras votes to evict Veronica. Ryan votes to evict Veronica. Maddy votes to evict Veronica Alejandra votes to evict Veronica. Johnny votes to evict Veronica. By a vote of 9-1 Veronica has been evicted from the BB Canada house. Arisa says tough break. She says a week ago she was in a very different position and does she regret that rogue vote? Veronica says absolutely not. She says everyone is thinking they are at summer camp and she wanted to take a risk. Arisa says she did not go down with a fight. Arisa says let’s drop another bomb shell on the remaining HG. It’s time for a double eviction! The HG are in the backyard and it’s time to find a new HOH. Arisa explains two at a time the HG will face-off at the podiums and answer questions about their time in the house. It’s an elimination game and they get to choose two to go head to head. The answer will be 1, 2, or 3. The last person standing will be the new HOH. Earlier, they drew for the first two spots and Olivia and Ali are up first. How many male HG competed in the fisherman’s wharf. Olivia answered 2 and is correct. Olivia chooses Ryan and Merron. How many times has the POV been used this season. Ryan answers 1 and he is correct. Ryan selects Olivia and Maddy. How many former HG visited the HG on day 26. The answer is one and Maddy answered wrong. Olivia chooses Paras and Hamza. How many pairs of HG wore handcuffs after the have-not competition? Paras is correct and she selects Ryan and Johnny. How many votes were cast to evict Olivia at the time of Jesse’s eviction. Ryan is correct and he selects Olivia and Paras. How many of the exhibits at the BB Can museum featured a former female HG? Olivia is correct and she selects Ryan and Kaela. How many evictees have been male? Ryan is correct with 2 and he selects Olivia and Derek. How many times has the POV been won by the reigning HOH? Olivia won and she selects Ryan and Will because they are the last two left. How many HG did NOT compete in handle with care? The answer is 2 and Ryan is up against Olivia for the final round. How many POV competitions have been won by a female? Ryan rings in with 1 and the answer is 2 and Olivia is the new HOH. Arisa tells them all to head back inside and there are quick meetings between Olivia and the others. Hamza is upstairs praying. Arisa calls them all back to the living room and Olivia must now nominate two house mates for eviction. Olivia nominates Merron and Ryan. It’s time for an arcade POV. They have to knock down targets and the first to knock down all five will win the POV. It’s a pinball style game. Paras, Alejandra, and Hamza were all drawn to play. Ryan is the first to knock them down and he wins POV. Arisa thinks Ryan will use that POV, but who will the replacement nominee be? We’ll find out in a few moments.

Jeff calls both tribes in and Naviti gets the first look at the new Malolo tribe. Naviti has been on a winning streak and Malolo on a losing streak, let’s see what happens now. Everyone drop your buffs, we are switching tribes. Jeff asks Michael how he feels right now and he says from a game point of view it’s his saving grace. He says maybe it’s a bright light at the end of the tunnel for him and Jenna. Jeff asks James what’s happening right now from a game point of view. James says they’ve survived this first phase of the game and it’s a race to the merge and beyond and based on what happens today could be critical in everyone’s game play. Jeff hands out the new buffs. They open their buffs and they discover there is a third color. They are switching from two tribes to three tribes. Orange and Purple are still in play, but now there is a green tribe. The tribes head to their new mats and introductions are going around. Dom says Chris was still after him so getting away from him is such a relief and the ball is in his court and he can decide which way the game goes now. Jeff says what a flip flop! There are now three original Naviti and two original Malolo on all three tribes. Jeff says Bradley at this point it’s really tough to rely on purple or orange because now there’s been enough inter-connecting between people that you don’t really know where anybody stands. Bradley says yeah, do the original divisions stand or are there new things happening? He looks forward to finding out and seeing where everything stands. Jeff asks Donathon if this is good for him or bad or neutral? Donathon laughs and says he doesn’t know. He’s never met two of them before and he looks forward to seeing what they are all about. He just doesn’t know what’s going to happen. Jeff says one of the things that comes with a new tribe is a new beach Sebastian? Sebastian says yeah, you have to start over but they have some strength on their team and he doesn’t think it will be a problem. Jeff says here’s the facts: Turning points are where the strong players shine and the weak players fade. Regardless how you’re feeling right now, your odds of getting to the end with only 15 people left are better now than they were when the game started. Brand new start to Survivor Ghost Island. The game has changed again. The green tribe reaches their new team flag and they are called Yanuya. The green tribe is Sebastian, Chris, Jenna, Wendell, and Laurel. They have fishing gear, rice, and a pot. They talk about they have skills in every category. Jenna says it’s a bit of a shock knowing they are going to start from scratch, but she’s ready to be on a tribe where she can win a reward. Wendell hands a shell to Sebastian and he gives him a hug and thanks him. Sebastian says he collects reminders and Wendell brought it back with him and he loves him for that. Sebastian says he wasn’t very close with Wendell because Wendell was working with Dom and Sebastian was working with Chris, but he has been that buddy who was never his buddy. Chris goes up to Wendell and says he’s glad to be off that island and Wendell was just next to the wrong person. Wendell says he was so ready to drop his buff because he was tired of managing two dominant egos. He was disappointed to be separated from Dom, but he was excited to be with Chris because of his winning track record, but he doesn’t look forward to Chris bragging about himself. Sebastian is talking Laurel and says she used to be a volleyball player? She says yeah, she used to be and Sebastian says he has played sand box on the beach and Chris says he’s played volleyball too. Chris talks about playing in a few places and his team won a tournament in Chicago. Chris tells us when you have an athletic and charismatic guy like him, it’s exhausting. Some people can chill and sit around and let the game evolve where he is thinking ahead and developing bonds because he has an X on his back since day 1. Chris and Laurel are talking and Chris says he looks at himself as an entrepreneur. Even though he’s not investing in a million things right now, he sees himself investing in him. Laurel tells him she could see him being a motivational speaker. Laurel tells us she’s having a hard time biting her tongue around Chris. He’s a guy that likes to hear himself talk but she’s trying to find a way to fit in and get along with them. Chris says he models and he hasn’t told anyone except Livi. Chris says he hasn’t told anyone because people think models are self-absorbed and dumb, things that might not be “beneficiary” to him in a tribe setting. He doesn’t tell people, but he’s singed in Chicago, Miami, and New York. Laurel says it’s nice to have him because he’s such a competitor, but the tribe is starting to get rubbed the wrong way by him. Jenna and Laurel are talking about it getting old. Laurel says they are ok with Chris just digging his own grave and as long as they win great. But if they do lose, Laurel thinks Chris will be in a world of trouble. We’re at Malolo with Michael, James, Desiree, Angela, and Kellyn. Michael says he is happy with this five and James says he thinks they have a mix of all different skill sets. Desiree says switching up the tribes again is crazy. But it’s all good. At their old tribe the Naviti were sticking together and voting Malolo out one by one, and now it’s her, Ang, and Kellyn still have the numbers. The only question mark is Angela because she’s been on the same tribe with James for a while now. Angela lays out the battle between Chris and Dominique and James supports her and they basically give the struggle on the old tribe between the two sides. Kellyn says it turns out Dom and Chris couldn’t just take a deep breath and get along for a few votes and keep Naviti strong and instead they tried to vote out Angela. Kellyn gets a feeling in the pit of her stomach this could be trouble. Angela tells what happened after the vote and how mad she was. Michael says he thought it was just him and James and they were going to be in trouble, but now he finds out Angela got stabbed in the back by her own tribe and she’s angry. Michael says this is huge, there are cracks in the Naviti group and maybe him and James can work with her. Michael and James talk and he says he was in the hot seat. James asks what he thinks about Kellyn and Desiree and Michael says they are unbreakable and you will not believe how tight the five are. James says not only is he back on the bottom and he’s not that close with Michael, but he thinks they are still on the same page because they are the only two Malolo. James says they saved her that tribal council when Morgan got voted out and hopefully she’ll feel indebted to them, but they’ll have their work cut out for them. At the Naviti camp, we have Donathon, Dominic, Bradley, Livi, and Chelsea. Bradley says coming back to the Naviti beach is like going to a resort after living in a slum. Bradley from a game standpoint Dom is a good ally and Chelsea has been voting with him so old Naviti has the advantage, but there are a lot of unknowns coming in. Chelsea is getting emotional because she says it feels like home. Chelsea talks about being drained after losing four challenges in a row. Dom says he’s having a moment of relief because he doesn’t have Chris on his tail now. He says he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders. Dom says he doesn’t have to play defense anymore and he feels like he’s in control because there are three original Naviti and he feels safe with them but they could play him. Dom says no more training wheels out here, time to get dirty. Dom says Livi is a devil in an angel’s body and he knows what game she is playing. Dom says she has to go almost as bad as Chris has to go. Dom talks to Bradley about Livi. Dom calls her Parvati 2.0. Bradley says Dom warned him that Livi is dangerous, so if they go to tribal she is the better option to get rid of. Bradley says they have Chelsea. Bradley feels like he’s better than he thought he was, or at least as good as he thought because he’s fantastic and playing an A+ game. Immunity is back up for grabs! We now have two idols for the two tribes safe from the vote. For today’s challenge, one person will be your caller and the rest of the tribe will be blindfolded. Using only verbal commands, the caller will lead the blindfolded pairs to retrieve three bags of puzzle pieces. Once you have all three bags, the caller will then lead one pair of blindfolded tribe members to solve the puzzle. The first two tribes to get their puzzle finished will win immunity. Callers will be: Desiree for Malolo, Wendell for Yanuya, and Dom for Naviti. All tribes are on their way. Wendell has guided Laurel and her partner to the first bag and they start working on it. Kellyn is working on her first bag as well. Desiree is screaming at Michael and. Kellyn has released the first bag and Donathon and Chelsea are working on the wrong bag. Chelsea and Michael are fighting over the bag and Michael gets it because it’s their bag. Dom is yelling directions to Donathon and Chelsea. Naviti still does not have a bag, Malolo has two bags, and Yanuya have one bag. Malolo are in the lead and they have all three bags. Desiree is leading them to the puzzle tables. Naviti is working on their third bag. Malolo has a huge lead and they are at the puzzle table. Yanuya has all three bags and Wendell leads their tribe out. Chelsea and Donathon are on their way back and Chelsea hits a post hard. Dom is now leading Naviti to the puzzle tables. When they get to the puzzle tables Wendell has forgotten a bag at the start and has to run all the way back to get it. Dom is guiding his tribe to start their puzzle. Jeff notes that Malolo has made no progress on their puzzle. Wendell is quickly making up time as he has their puzzle started. Desiree who couldn’t get the puzzle done on day one is now leading the puzzle on day 13. Yanuya is back in it and they are in the lead. Naviti is competing against Malolo now. Malolo has gotten some momentum. Jeff says it has come down to communication. Wendell has Yanuya close to winning the challenge and they have it. It’s down to Naviti and Malolo. Naviti is getting closer and so is Malolo as both are down to two pieces. Desiree is yelling frantically and Dom is yelling as well and they think they have it. Naviti has the puzzle and they win immunity. Malolo has lost and is going back to tribal council. Michael says that challenge was a complete and utter failure and he’s going to his fifth of six tribal councils. He says this season is about erasing curses, not creating new ones. At the Malolo camp it’s a somber mood and Desiree apologizes. Kellyn is emotional and Angela shakes her head. Desiree says the challenge today is the worst moment of her life. She feels like she failed and she feels like the biggest loser. Kellyn talks to Angela and Desiree about voting out James. Desiree says it’s either James or her. Desiree says because of her one of them is going home, but she’s still a player in this game. Desiree says no one has a connection to James and even though she feels like it should be her, James is going home. James and Michael are talking and James says Desiree choked. Michael agrees that it wasn’t Kellyn, it was all Des. James needs to talk to Angela. James says they are in a tough spot, but sometimes you’re dealt a bad hand and you have to make it work. James talks to Angela and she says it seems maybe Malolo is cursed. James tells us they moved to South Korea when he was 2 and when he turned 16 he chose to come back to the U.S. and he had to adapt to a new life, a new language, and learn how to connect with people and that prepared him for this moment. Angela tells James that Kellyn and Desiree do have a close relationship and she’s probably on the bottom. She says look what happened last time. James says if she works with him he promises she will not be on the bottom of anything. Angela says she does trust James and this game is all about relationships. She talks about her military experience and her personal struggles and being alone. She was raised to focus on everyone else’s happiness and now she’s focused on her. She asks if he and Michael are on the same line and James says yes. Angela says they definitely have to move forward with strength. Angela would like to stay loyal to Naviti, but she has to look out for her first and decide what will get her further in the game. Angela and Kellyn are talking and Kellyn says when they were together with the old Naviti on the Malolo tribe they stuck together and there was no question about it. Angela says what are your thoughts now and Kellyn says she’s hoping she wants to work with her. Kellyn thought Angela would be willing to work with her and Desiree and that makes her super nervous. She could see Angela wanting to save James and come after her or Desiree. Kellyn says they have been together the whole time and she knows her and Des will vote together and she’d love Angela to work with them. Kellyn feels more uncomfortable going into this tribal than she has the whole game. Kellyn tells us she has never 100% trusted Angela because she’s all over the place and she doesn’t know if Angela understands what’s going on in her own head. Someone like that is just dangerous. She prays to God this works out and tonight will tell her if Naviti has finally broken down, if it’s about orange and purple or if everything has turned brown. Time for tribal council. Jeff says we all know the headline, Malolo may be one of the worst tribes in terms of challenge performance. They may never win a survivor challenge as a tribe. He asks Desiree how it feels inside when you’re down and going to tribal after tribal after tribal. Desiree says when things aren’t great you get an opportunity to reflect who you are and she feels like today was her responsibility. She says what makes a winner is how you get back up after you fall. Jeff says James felt responsibility for a loss and he got votes and he felt he deserved them. Is it fair to vote someone out for blowing an immunity challenge? James says that’s tough because he was given a second chance and it depends what people prioritize their vote on. Jeff asks Kellyn the ability to win has to go through their head when making these decisions, because if you don’t win then you won’t make the merge. Kellyn says it just feels awful and it’s coming into all of their minds and she thinks they all want to win. Jeff asks Angela where she weighs in on this because no one wants to criticize someone who is giving their best. Angela says absolutely, and if you have that strength great. But if you step up to the plate you can’t strike out because they are expecting you to hit a home run. Jeff says Desiree, it can’t feel good to hear that. Desiree says it doesn’t feel good, but if they are thinking ahead and the future and strength is not something they want to go up against in individual challenges. Jeff tells James Desiree is throwing it right back to the group and saying maybe you need strength, but it’s a long game and there are a lot of layers to it. What do you read into that? James says Desiree has a point, but they feel like they are so close to the merge and they know how to get there. Jeff notes that Michael is nodding and says does he think they should just get to the merge and then decide who to vote out for strength? Michael says of course, you have to have the big picture in mind but if you don’t get close then what’s the point anyway? He wants to win and he knows everyone here wants to win and to get to the merge you have to keep the tribe strong. Kellyn cuts in and says the other part of this, which is crazy they made it this far into tribal council and it hasn’t come up is there are three original Naviti members and two original Malolo members. You start to play the game in your head and you look at the math and it’s not lost on her that long term relationships are just as important as brute strength. Jeff asks James how concerned is he that old tribal alliances are what flips the vote tonight? James says it looks dangerous for him and Michael, but when it comes to those old tribe lines, which are random anyway, you can’t be so myopic. You have to look at different types of bonds with different people. James says crossing the aisles to the other side is pretty critical he thinks. Jeff says Angela, that’s really interesting what James said that the tribes were random and they don’t bleed Naviti or Malolo, it’s just a buff, it opens up when and how you can make a relationship that could last. It doesn’t have to be day one. Angela says absolutely. Her being on Naviti was just a chance and every one of her original tribe voted against her. Malolo didn’t directly save her, but indirectly that’s the reason she is sitting here today. Jeff says curious. Just a question for all of you with a quick answer. In life typically, do you lead with your head or your heart? Angela answers head. Michael says heart. Desiree says head. James says head. Kellyn says to her, her gut is the perfect mix of her head and her heart. When you find and follow what your gut is telling you, it’s because you let your head speak a little bit and your heart speak a little bit. Find where that settles in and make your decision from there. Jeff says 36 seasons into Survivor and he’s still being taught how the game is played by the players and he loves it. It’s time to vote! Jeff will tally the votes. If anyone has a hidden immunity idol now is the time to play it. No one moves. Time to read the votes. First vote: James. Desire. One vote each. James. Sixth person voted out of Ghost Island…James. That’s enough. James is stunned and looks down at Angela. He looks back and says great blindside and it’s been a true pleasure playing with them and best of luck. Well, your head, your heart, and ultimately your gut led you to vote out one of the strongest members of this tribe. Time will tell if you made the right call. Next time on Survivor: There's fire at Malolo. We see Desiree say they should burn the Malolo flag because it's bad juju and Michael says he could be the next to go but there could be light at the end of the tunnel. And fury at Naviti. We see Bradley say the test for him is to not be a total jerk and then we see Dom saying he's a nasty son of a gun. Donathon says the fire in his body was raging!
  23. We pick up after the nomination ceremony and Erica says she just put up Merron and Maddy and says it was hard and Merron is not her target this week, but Maddy is. Veronica thought she might get put up, but she’s not and her plan worked and she stirred the pot! Merron is pumped and ready to fight for veto. Maddy is emotional and she is ready to fight and pull herself off the block. Maddy is upstairs crying and Johnny comes in and comforts her. Maddy says when she gets upset she gets emotional, but if it’s seen as a weakness that works too. Olivia comes in and says it’s overwhelming until you play in the POV and then it gets better. Maddy says let them think I’m weak and not threatening and they’ll forget how passionate she is about the game. Ali gives Maddy a hug and they go to the WA to talk. Ali is telling Maddy she still has the POV so not to give up. Paras comes in to talk. Maddy says obviously she has work to do with the house. Maddy says she’s crying on the outside, but on the inside she’s thinking there is no way she is going home week 4. Johnny is in the red rose room and Merron comes in and asks what’s wrong. Johnny says he gets this is the game, but he feels bad. Merron says he thinks this is moment because he wants to win a comp and scream and cheer. Merron says this is the Big Brother experience. Johnny says Merron’s perspective is probably the best mind frame to be in. Merron says regardless of what happens he will not let his head hang low. Johnny says you could not have two more different people on the block. You have Merron who is Mr. Sunshine and Maddy who is staining his clothes with her tears. It’s so emotional and he just can’t take it anymore. It’s time to pick players for the veto competition! Erica picks first and draws Olivia. Merron draws Alejandra and Maddy draws Ryan. Erica also selects Will to be the host of the veto competition. Alejandra is talking to Olivia. If she wins POV, then she wants to use it. She’d talk to Erica first. Ali says there are much bigger targets than Maddy and Merron. Olivia says Veronica is a threat in the game and she could go after anyone and she knows V was the rogue vote against her. Ali tells Olivia that she’s been passionate about getting Veronica out since she stepped foot in the house. It’s time for the POV competition and the HG head out to the backyard to a fishing themed competition. To start, each 6 players will have their own docks and there is “fishing line” around a series of posts. When the go is given they will be attached to one end of the fishing line and will have to wind their through the course. The first three HG to untangle their fishing line will move on to the next part. Erica doesn’t think she needs to win this because she’s won too many comps already. Maddy is going to win this veto to show how much of a fighter she is and how much she deserves to be there. Ryan seems to be getting dizzy and he says these vetoes are hell, just leave his chip in the bag. He’s not a comp beast, he’s a couch beast. They get squirted with water periodically through the comp. Erica says there is just something inside her where she can’t throw a comp. Erica is at her second post and Maddy is not far behind. Olivia is the first to complete and rings her bell and she is the first to move on to round two. Erica is number 2 and there is one spot left. Maddy and Alejandra are neck and neck. Maddy says that third spot is her and Ali needs to back off. Maddy finishes and makes it through to the final round. For Round 2 they each have a big reel in the middle of the platforms and they have to jump over to reel in their fish. The first to reel in the fish will win the POV. Olivia is tired and wants to know if she can take a break. Erica seems to have a good form. Maddy is also struggling. Erica says this competition is harder than it looks and it’s even harder to throw against these lame competitors. Erica is taking deep breaths and she stops to fix her ponytail. Maddy says Erica looks like she’s about to be sick and she feels bad for her…not. Maddy is struggling but she wants the veto and the other HG are encouraging all three girls to keep going. Erica finally reels in her fish and she has won the POV! She says she won the POV which means she has complete control and she also has people to talk to. Maddy says am I happy for Erica? No. But am I happy for her? Of course! Maddy wants to talk Erica into using the POV on her. Maddy and Erica are talking in the WA and Erica says Maddy went so much harder than Merron. Erica says Maddy should be so proud of herself. Merron, Hamza, and Ryan are talking about whether or not Erica will use the POV. They don’t think she’ll use it and Hamza says if she does, then she has to take out a big target. Merron says he’ll be shocked if Erica uses it and Hamza says that’s a gamers move. Alejandra, Olivia, Veronica, and Erica are talking about music in the HOH. Veronica leaves and Olivia immediate pitches taking down Maddy and putting up Veronica. They are worried about who Veronica would go after in a D/E situation. Erica says she doesn’t like to BD someone, but she understands that’s the game. Erica says she wants to make sure she has the votes because if she takes the shot and Veronica stays she will come after her. Ali says this is one of those times where people look back and say they should have taken the shot. Merron comes in and Olivia asks for another couple of minutes and he says he just wanted the MP3 player. Johnny is talking to Alejandra about how he’s been playing such a nice game, but he’s ready to just let go and bring chaos into the house. Ali is laughing. Erica has her Wendy’s meal and she invites Will to join her. Erica says he’s been missing his son a little bit and maybe this will remind him of home. Erica goes to get the food and while they eat they talk about Will’s son. Will says it’s hard, but you have to remember why you’re here. Erica says it was great to connect with Will on a friendship level. Olivia goes and wants to talk to Veronica. Ali says her and Olivia are trying to talk Erica into backdooring Veronica, but they don’t want her to get suspicious. Olivia wants to know if there is any way to maybe work with her. Veronica tells them it’s best to vote the way Hamza wants and she feels like she owes Hamza her loyalty. She tells them it’s a good way to build trust. Ali says Veronica is buying everything they are selling right now. Veronica leaves and Olivia says she thinks we’re dumb. Ali looks at the camera and says we’re not stupid. Ryan goes in to talk to Erica. Erica says even though she tried to throw the veto competition, she won and now everyone is trying to influence her decision. Ryan says if it were him, he’d try to backdoor someone. We see a series of HG knocking on the door to talk to Erica and she says BB should have just put a revolving door on the HOH room. Erica is talking to Maddy. Maddy says she turned on the waterworks, she showed up at the comp, and she’s not done yet. She thinks Erica needs to play to her ego and she needs to pitch that if she doesn’t use veto on her it’s a weak move and a waste of her HOH. Maddy tells Erica she has to consider whether she’ll get a chance to win another HOH and if not, they will be further in the game and people may be less forthcoming with information. Will talks to Erica and she says she can’t see herself using it, but it’s not the ceremony yet. Erica and Hamza are talking and she says people are throwing everything at her. Erica says she doesn’t want to grow the target on her back anymore. Hamza says but if you use it, go out swinging because that will get you more respect. Hamza says there could a double coming up, and people will take a shot at her. Erica says they should, she’s a comp beast. Erica says today is the veto ceremony and she really has no clue what she’s going to do. She says if she takes Maddy or Merron off the block it could put more blood on her hands and she’s not sure she wants to do that. She doesn’t think Merron will hold a grudge if she leaves him on the block, but if she saves Maddy that could be a number on her side. She says everyone wants her to make the move, but is it best for her game or theirs? It’s time for the veto ceremony! Merron would love for her to use the veto on him because he has a lot more game to play, especially since he came in a week later than everyone else. Maddy says she is standing out not due to a lack of a relationship, but a game relationship. Using the veto on her will help with that relationship that has grown over the week. Erica has decided…to use the POV on Maddy. She says she played with a lot of heart and proved she deserved to be here. Now Erica has to name a replacement nominee and her replacement nominee is…Veronica. Erica chose her because last week she chose to play a shady game and she doesn’t respect that. Erica says Veronica thinks she’s running the house and she’s here to remind Veronica that she does not. Veronica says she is shocked and her game is on now more than ever. Veronica says Erica should have thought about it a little longer because she just started a war. Erica says she debated to make the move, but playing it safe just isn’t her style. Find out Thursday who will be evicted!
  24. Previously, on Big Brother Canada: The King of Chaos dropped the hammer when he nominated Olivia and Jesse. Then at a farm-tastic PoV Hamza bagged a win and kept the power to himself. But when Jesse called out the King, the hammer nailed a target to the stud's back. With the house falling in line, the writing was on the wall, but Derek couldn't read it, so Kaela spelled it out for him. While Olivia, the serial (cereal) floater, just drifted along, Jesse played every card he could to stay in the house. Then, in the dying moments before the vote, Jesse named and shamed the enemy. As expected, Derek backed his buddy, and in a shocker, so did Veronica. But in a nine to two tally, Jesse was jettisoned. Tonight, who will make history as the next HoH? And can the fallen angel [Veronica] keep her vote a secret? And who will end up on the block? It's time to raise a little hell, on Big Brother Canada! We pick up after the eviction with everyone wondering where the second vote to keep Jesse came from. The girls' huddle and Veronica acts shocked and demands to know who cast the vote that is causing everyone else to look shady. In the DR, Veronica tells us her plan to shake things up is working just as she hoped. It's time to crown a new Head of Household. Tonight's competition is called, "Night at the BBCAN Museum." Earlier, the HGs got to walk through the BB Hall of Fame Museum where they got to see three former BBCAN HG legends reenacting iconic moments from past seasons of BBCAN. The current HGs had just minutes to memorize details from the museum reenactment displays. Arisa: "You will now be tested on how much you remember from these exhibits. The answer to each question will be either 'A' or 'B'. If you answer incorrectly you will be eliminated from the competition. The last HG standing will become the new HoH." First question: "What was the name on the envelope that Ika was holding in her hand?" A for Neta, B for Jon. The answer was Jon Pardy. Everyone was correct. Next question: In Sabrina's display, which hand did she have pointed up in the air? The answer was right. Merron and Will were wrong and they are eliminated. Next question: True or False, Kevin had the veto around his neck in his exhibit? The answer is false, everyone is correct. Next question: True or False, the title of Sabrina's exhibit was "Sabrina Delivers Good TV" Kaela, Veronica, Johnny, and Olivia were wrong and eliminated. From the DR, Paras tells us she knows all the answers but it's too early in the game for her to start looking like a threat, so she's going to throw this HoH. Next question: On the table behind Ika, how many envelopes did not have stamps on them? A for two, or B for three? Paras picks B, the answer is A. We now have Erica, Maddy, and Alejandra remaining in the competition. Next question: How many times did we hear the clip of Sabrina saying, "You want good TV?" A = 3, B = 4. The correct answer was B, but everyone answered A, so everyone remains in the contest. Next question: How many times did the word "triple" appear on Kevin's plaque? A for 2, B for 3? The correct answer is B, three times. Maddy got it wrong and was eliminated. Erica, Ali, and Derek are all still in the competition in a three-way tie. In the tie-breaker question, the players have chalkboards. The answer will be a number, and the contestant that comes closest without going over will be the winner. The tiebreaker question: "At the end of the competition, 'Handle With Care,' was how many pieces of fruit were successfully passed across the backyard to the other side in total? The correct answer was 206. Erica guessed 150, Derek: 420, Ali: 243. Erica is the new HoH. From the DR, Erica tells us it is now time to get down to business, "Tonight has just proven there are some major trust issues in the house, and now that I'm HoH I need to figure out exactly who I can trust, and what kind of move I plan on making in this game." In the red room, the girls assure Derek that he has nothing to worry about, that Erica has bigger targets to go after. They assume that Ryan will be going on the block. Meanwhile, in the white room, Merron and William try to figure out what Erica's agenda might be. From the DR, Merron tells us that on a personal level, he and Erica get along very well, "but from a game perspective, I'm not very sure where her head's at." The girls, including Erica, talk about how certain they are that Veronica was the hinky vote. They tell Erica they'll support whatever decision she makes regarding the nominations. Hamza asks Ryan if he thinks the hinky vote was cast be the same person he's thinking of. Kaela says Ryan thinks it was her, and Ryan says he thinks it was Kaela too, "I can tell you why I feel like you and Derek feel isolated from the house and that you are targets. So, by sitting in a room and telling everybody you're not going to vote for Jesse, it makes everyone else distrust one and other, which may take the focus off you." Ryan asks if Kaela thinks he was the hinky vote and she replies, "Part of me does, just because you're the one saying it's someone else." Ryan says he understands the point of a rogue vote, but it wasn't his. Kaela adds again the rogue vote wasn’t hers and Ryan says he’d rather it be Kaela for a strategic reason than think someone else is lying to everyone’s face. Kaela says someone else is lying. Upstairs, Veronica goes into the WA and she tells us her rogue vote is doing exactly what she wanted it to do: make everyone question everyone else. She then does a little dance meant to show she stirred the pot. She says the house is completely flipped upside down right now and she’s loving every minute of it. Paras tells us everyone doesn’t know who the second vote was and the house is a mess because everyone is freaking out. Will is talking to Paras and he’s questioning her and he’s not sure if he can trust her. Paras says she thinks someone did it to stir the pot. Veronica comes into the SR where Will and Paras are and Paras asks for a minute. Will and Paras are bickering about her loyalty and it turns into an argument over Paras talking loudly. Paras says she doesn’t like Will questioning her loyalty and her character. Paras goes up to the red rose room where Veronica is laying down and Paras is venting to Veronica about Will questioning her. Alejandra comes in and asks what’s going on and Veronica says everyone is just freaking out over the vote. Paras says Will is not someone she cares enough about to allow him to talk to her like that. Who wants to see Erica’s HOH room? She has pictures of her girlfriend and her family. She gets a stuffed elephant from her girlfriend, Shea and she starts to get emotional. They got Catchphrase from Hasbro. Erica sits down for her video: It’s her girlfriend, Shea and she says “Hi Babe! Congratulations on your HOH win! I am so proud of you, you deserve this so much. I watch you every day on the live feeds morning to night, at work, at the gym, it’s pretty much on 24/7. I miss you so much and life is not the same without you. It honestly kind of sucks. For now, enjoy your week as an HOH! I love you to the moon and back, forever and always. I cannot wait to see you! I’ll talk to you very, very soon. I love you babe! Erica says seeing the video is so overwhelming. It’s all the more motivation she needs, but obviously it’s hard to see someone you love so much that you just want to be with all of the time. Maddy says every week with the family videos, it’s great to see someone’s family member in front of them. But it’s impossible to forget they haven’t seen their own families. Maddy is downstairs crying and Olivia goes to comfort Maddy. Maddy says it’s not about her though, it’s about Erica and her win. Olivia says she understands it’s hard not to get frustrated though. They talk about who their family videos might be from if they got HOH. Will and Paras are outside talking and Will apologizes for being a jerk. Paras says she understands. She just doesn’t want Will to question her loyalty. Will says if Paras were up against Maddy or Veronica, he’d take her down. Will says no one has ever brought Paras’s name up to him, but Maddy’s name has been brought up to him. Will says she always walks in on people’s conversations and she’s getting herself in trouble. Paras says Maddy is making herself a target and that worries her a lot because she’s tight with Maddy and Will. Erica and Merron are talking in the HOH room. Merron is trying to figure out where Erica’s head is at because a lot of people are uncertain what she’s going to do. Erica says there are a few people she doesn’t know about, but with Merron, she is obsessed with him as a person, but they never talk game. That worries her a little bit and she’s basing her decision on people who she doesn’t know where they stand. And she tells him his name on the short list. She says there is one person she really wants on the block and the other person will be there to fill a chair. Erica tells us she is considering using Merron as a pawn because he doesn’t pose a threat to anyone and he doesn’t have many close relationships so it won’t make waves in the house. She’d love for him to win veto and there might be a bigger move in the works. Merron tells us Erica is considering putting him on the block and he thinks it’s a weak move because he’s not gunning for her and she knows that. Erica got to invite some friends to play Catchphrase and there is fruit to snack on. She invited Maddy, Ryan, Alejandra, Olivia, and Johnny. Erica says Ali is carrying the team, she’s really good at the game. Paras, Will, and Maddy are in the white rose room and Paras is looking forward to a relaxed week. Maddy says her relationship is blossoming, but she knows there are better relationships in the house. Maddy is concerned because she’s not sure if their relationship is enough to keep her off the block. Erica and Hamza are talking and Erica says they could beast through the house. Hamza says he has her until the end and she says the same. Erica tells us she is close with Hamza and he’s someone she feels like she can trust to discuss nominations with. Hamza is trying to convince Erica to put him on the block to stack the veto and Erica isn’t going for it. Erica wants to keep as many straight shooters as she can because she wants someone who will come at her from the front and not the back. Erica does not want to risk Hamza going home because the HG are too fickle. Erica pitches putting up Maddy and Hamza says that’s a waste of an HOH. Erica asks who else besides that and then she asks how he feels about Veronica. Hamza says she’s a bit of a wild card and that’s a great game move, but she’s a strong player so if Erica is going to take a shot then she has to win. Hamza tells her if she takes out Veronica that’s a huge target. Veronica wants to talk to Erica and reassure her she can trust her. Veronica thinks it would be a great move for them to work together. They discuss the rogue vote and Erica tells Veronica that Jesse told her V would vote for him. Veronica is still denying it and says what would be the point of me doing that? Veronica says she’s stronger and faster than a lot of other people in the house and if they stick together they could run the house. Veronica says she is willing to put herself on the line in comps to keep Erica safe. Erica tells us she is 100% convinced the rogue vote is Veronica and she’s been lying to everyone’s face. Alejandra and Erica and Erica is telling Alejandra she’s convinced the rogue vote is Veronica. Erica tells Ali that she is getting Veronica to think she believes her to get more information because she wants to see how far V will go with a lie. Ali says she is dangerous. Erica tells us it’s clear to her that Veronica not only poses a huge threat to her game, but the gave of the entire house. But what’s not so clear is if she should be the one to take her out of the game. Erica tells Ali if she takes that shot and it doesn’t land then she screws her own game. Ali says it would be sick if Erica gets Veronica out this week. Maddy tells us Erica being HOH this week makes her nervous because they don’t have a strong game connection and they both know that. Maddy wants to get in her ear before nominations. Erica tells Maddy she feels like she’s going to put her up and there’s nothing wrong with what they have, it’s just not where others are. Maddy says she’s disappointed this is the result because she feels like things could get better. Maddy tells Erica she doesn’t have to pit them against each other and she never wanted strong women to be against strong women. Maddy thinks her and Erica on the same team would be a shock to everyone and she doesn’t think it’s ideal for either of them for Maddy to go home. Erica appreciates that and she is listening. Maddy says she hopes she doesn’t see her name on the screen, but if it is it draws a line and she doesn’t want that. Maddy says if she sees her name on the screen, Erica has no idea how vengeful she can be and if she crosses that line there is no forgiveness for her. Erica heads to the throne room and she says now that she’s HOH it’s time to start putting plans in motion, not just for this week but for weeks to come. Now she has to decide if she wants to make big and rash moves, or something safer that still benefits her. She’s considering Merron as a nomination because they got a late start in forming a relationship and they have no game relationship at all. She’s considering Maddy because she’s playing a game she doesn’t understand or respect and she doesn’t want to play with people like that. She’s considering nominating Hamza because he’s interested in being on the block and that could be good for her if they pull out the veto win and secure control for the week. She’s considering nominating Veronica because she’s sure she’s lying about last week’s vote and she can’t work with dishonest people and she could be dangerous to her game. This is the first time she’s had to get her hands dirty in the game and she wants to make sure it’s worth something. It’s time for the nomination ceremony. Erica has nominated Merron and Maddy. Erica chose to nominate Merron because even though their personal relationship has begun to develop, their game relationship hasn’t. Erica has chosen to nominate Maddy because she is an extremely social player and that coupled with their own lack of game chats has left her wondering where her head is at. She respects them both as people and players and she expects them to kick butt in the POV. Merron says he’s pumped to be on the block. It’s part of the Big Brother experience and he’s ready to go out and win the POV and take his fate into his own hands. Maddy says Erica did exactly what she would have done in her position. She respects the move, but she won’t forget the move either.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, the final battles will be fought. The toughest decisions will be made. And one last artist will be stolen. Before the artists take the stage, they’ll get coaching from some of the best in the business. They will create some of the best battles of the season. The biggest and most exciting round of the battles yet…concludes tonight! Let’s meet Adam’s first battle pairing of the night, Stephanie Skipper vs Jackie Verna. Adam has given them the song These Dreams by Heart. Julie loves Jackie’s twang she had in her voice, and Stephanie when she hit the high notes it was almost like Celine Dion. At their stage rehearsal, Adam notes how hard Stephanie and Jackie worked. He’s pretty blown away and he says it’s cool to see people grow in front of your eyes. Stephanie and Jackie take the stage to perform These Dreams by Heart. Blake congratulates them and he felt like that song didn’t fit in either of their wheelhouses, but because of that they each got to take a moment to showcase what they can do. Blake says it was even, but if he had to choose he’d go with Jackie. Kelly says she felt like the both captured country via Heart. Kelly says she’d probably pick Stephanie, but she thinks both singers are pretty fantastic. Alicia says she loves that song and Stephanie has more of an awareness of who she is and Jackie has raw, untapped talent that’s ready to evolve. Adam says this song was a huge challenge and they both did a fantastic job. Adam says the growth he seen in Jackie was astounding, but they are both incredible singers and that was an amazing duet. Adam says sometimes this boils down to a feeling and the winner of this battle is…Jackie. It’s time to meet our next artist’s, Livia Faith vs Terrence Cunningham. Alicia has given them the song Stars by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Alicia asks Terrence how he feels about playing the song. Shawn says the second Terrence’s hands touched the piano his vocals opened up because he felt calmer. Shawn says the creativity level with those two is through the roof and there is going to be a beautiful connection to happen on stage. Alicia says Livia and Terrence really worked on this piece and it’s really a beautiful moment. She says she’s in a reverie right now and this is going to be a really hard choice for her. It’s going to be about what gives her the chills. Livia and Terrence take the stage to perform Stars by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. Adam says Terrence is a ridiculous musician and an incredible singer and Livia came out and surprised everyone because she held her own. Adam says she’s a diamond in the rough. Kelly says Livia has a story teller kind of voice and she thinks Terrence was so respectful during the performance and they did a good job together as a team. Blake says he didn’t even feel like he was at the Voice. They worked so hard on creating a moment together, it was hard to separate the two of them. Alicia says they are both complete individuals. She says Livia revealed herself in that battle and was really impressive. Alicia says Terrence draws people in in a quiet way that’s really powerful. Alicia has to decide the winner and she says it’s the most difficult battle to choose from. The winner of this battle is…Terrence. As the night went on, the battles continued to impress our coaches. We see Angel Bonilla vs Gary Edwards from Team Adam who sang When You Believe by Whitney Houston and Adam says Gary went above and beyond and he’s the winner of the battle. Next, we see Austin Giorgio vs Brett Hunter from Team Blake and they perform Me and Mrs. Jones by Billy Paul. Blake thanked them both working so hard and it came down to which one of these two could move forward and not let the pressure get to them. The winner of this battle is Austin. From Team Kelly, Alexa Capelli WAS paired with Hannah Goebel, but unfortunately Hannah Goebel had to leave for personal reasons so Alexa performed the song Pray by Sam Smith solo. The final battle pairing of the season from Team Blake is Dallas Caroline vs Spensha Baker. Blake has given them the song I Could Use a Love Song by Maren Morris. Blake says Dallas is a very accurate vocalist. Trace says of all the performances he saw, Spensha was his favorite. Trace says some of the things Spensha did at the end made him smile. Trace tells them on the verses to maybe be a touch behind the beat. #VOICE Dallas and Spensha take the stage and sing I Could Use a Love Song by Maren Morris. Kelly says Dallas is a tiny little package with a huge voice and all she needs is confidence and Spensha has an undeniable, huge presence. Kelly would go with Spensha if she had to pick. Alicia says she could sense nerve from Dallas, but she did her thing and Spensha has unlimited abilities and that was so special. Alicia might go with Dallas. Adam says Dallas an untapped potential and that’s hard to not want to discover. Adam says Spensha has a chameleon aspect which is really special and they are both fantastic. Blake says Dallas is a great singer and she stepped up to the plate. Blake says Spensha has the opportunity to blow the minds of Nashville and turn the country music industry on it’s ear. Blake says there isn’t a clear winner. Blake has to choose a winner and the winner is…Spensha. Carson reminds them Dallas is available to steal and before Dallas gets a chance to talk to Blake, Alicia hits her button. Alicia says she sees something special in her and she can help her explore what she wants to say. Dallas has joined Team Alicia! Next week, the Knock-out rounds are about to change the game because each coach can now keep one artist from leaving their team with…The Save!
