  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Survivor 36: Ghost Island show recaps

    Previously on Survivor, at the Naviti tribe there was a war between Chris and Dominique and the original Naviti were turning on each other. The Malolo tribe was facing tribal council and the original Naviti were a united front against Jenna, Michael, and Stephanie. At tribal council, the Naviti alliance stayed strong leaving Michael and Jenna fighting to stay alive. 15 are left, who will be voted out tonight? 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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!

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, week 2 of the battles begins. Helping to create some of the greatest battles in Voice history will be, Shawn Mendes, Julia Michaels, Trace Adkins, and Hailee Steinfeld. With the Knock-outs looming, every decision will be impactful, and every steal will be crucial. The battles continue right now! Tonight’s first battle pairing will be from Team Blake, Kaleb Lee vs Pryor Baird. Blake gave them the song Don’t Do Me Like That by Tom Petty. Trace says Pryor has a voice that gets your attention and Blake says Kaleb is a great country vocalist. Blake gives Kaleb notes on phrasing and gives notes to Pryor tips on breath control and scaling back to let it build. Trace says they are doing it like a duet and it’s cool and to go out and do this song like a tribute. Blake says being able to go into rehearsals and see what’s happening is helpful so they can see what’s going on and give them a little edge before the battle. Blake says they really took his notes and they are doing great. Blake says Kaleb and Pryor are blowing his mind because something has built up inside of them and now it’s all coming out. Kaleb and Pryor take the stage to perform Don’t Do Me Like That by Tom Petty and both gentlemen are playing guitars. Kelly says that was real good and they both have such cool tones. Kelly says it was an evenly matched battle. Alicia says that was such fun and they both had a vibrant energy. Alicia would go with Kaleb. Adam says Pryor is a beastly man, but Kaleb has a certain subtleness to what he does. Blake says both Pryor and Kaleb have put music to the side and it’s shocking because of how talented they are. Blake says Kaleb stepped up to it and Pryor came out here and he is for real and he brought again. Blake says this is the suckiest part of this job for him. The winner of the battle is…Pryor. Kaleb tells Blake he’s so grateful and thankful the opportunity. As he starts to walk off, Kelly hits her button. Kaleb is joining Team Kelly. The next battle pairing is from Team Adam, Mia Boostrom vs Genesis Diaz. Adam has given them the song Because of You by Kelly Clarkson. Julia liked Mia’s deep tone which you don’t hear too often. Adam says Genesis can pierce through a band, she has a very strong tone. Adam tells them to sing back and forth because it’s important for him to hear each of them. Julia says they both have really intense, soulful vibratos and that’s very unique. Julia tells them to figure out a way to make it their own and put themselves in it. At rehearsals, Adam says there are always variables that can happen and they both have to do the best they can to get past them and put their best on the stage. Adam says this will come down to confidence and who breaks through on the song. He thinks Kelly will love it. Mia and Genesis take the stage to perform Because of You by Kelly Clarkson. Blake says they are both great singers and hearing them perform that song made him realize how hard that song was. Blake would pick Mia as the winner. Alicia says Mia is more earthy and Mia is a lioness and she thinks the song better suited Mia. Kelly loved hearing the song and she says Genesis is a piston and she’s ready for Pat Benatar. She also felt the song was better suited for Mia and she had some low ends that she would die for. Adam says he loved how almost out of control Genesis was, where Mia has control and excellence when it comes to technical singing. What they both have, he loves and it makes this decision difficult. Adam is thinking hard and says the winner…of this battle…is Mia. Next, we have Team Kelly’s pairing of Justin Kilgore vs Molly Stevens. Kelly gave them the song of Burning House by Cam. Hailee says Molly’s voice was so captivating. It had the ability to make you hold on to every word she sang. Kelly says Justin is an old school country voice she loves, but he’s also go this R&B thing too. Kelly says there are not country males doing what Justin can do with his voice. Kelly tells Molly to not get too introspective, but to look out at the audience or Justin. At rehearsals, Kelly says the winner needs to connect to the song. She wants Justin and Molly to be believable. Kelly advises them not to be too rigid. Kelly says this song is about the body language and owning it while they are performing. Justin and Molly take the stage to sing Burning House by Cam. Alicia says there was a real tenderness between them that was beautiful. Alicia says this is a tough one for her, but she’d probably pick Molly. Adam says he appreciates they made him feel something, it was a nice moment. Adam says he would probably go with Justin, but no one sings like Molly. Blake says he turned his chair for both of them. Blake says Justin’s voice probably fit better with the song and with Molly it’s odd to hear her go soft to hard. He was impressed by that and he would go with Molly. Kelly says their voices are very different, but they are both so emotional. Kelly says Molly has this Melissa Etheridge greatness to her and Justin is an untapped well with something waiting to come out. Kelly is having difficulty choosing the winner, but she goes with…Justin. Our next pairing is Miya Bass vs Drew Cole from Team Adam. Adam has given them the song Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan. Adam says Drew has a voice that can be on the radio now or 40 years ago, he has a timeless voice. Julia says what makes Miya special is her range because it’s really cool she can go from the very bottom of her range to the very top. Adam wants to change the arrangement a little and he says Axl Rose gave his version a lot of pizazz. Julie says for Drew and Miya, it’s going to take them both to make this song as unique as possible. Julie says it’s nice they both have their own identities in the song and this is going to be a tough one for Adam. At rehearsals, Adam says this is a song that’s going to boil down to the performance and the urgency of it. Adam says there has been more growth in this duo than any other. Adam gives some final advice on note selection and control. Drew and Miya take the stage to sing Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door by Bob Dylan. Blake says that didn’t feel like a battle but a Grammy performance. Blake says that was an obvious choice for Drew and Miya was creative with it, but still honored the original. He would probably go with Miya. Kelly says Drew has a voice that has a story teller vibe and the freedom that Miya performs with is amazing. Kelly regrets not turning for Miya in the blinds. Alicia says it was fantastic to see two different interpretations of the same song. Alicia says that song was in Drew’s wheelhouse and Miya made that her own. Alicia says it doesn’t matter what she thinks, all that matters is what Adam thinks. Adam says the two of them encapsulate everything he loves about music. Adam congratulates them on making this a special moment and making him proud. They both did an 11 out of 10 and he’s going to choose as the winner…Drew. Miya thanks Adam it was thanks to him she made it this far and she thanks everyone. Alicia hits her button. Cason says Miya is stunned. Alicia says she was waiting and waiting and here she comes. Alicia can’t wait to explore things that are unexpected. Miya is joining Team Alicia! Time to meet Blake’s battle pairing of Jordan Kirkdorffer vs Wilkes. Blake has given them the song Nobody to Blame by Chris Stapleton. Blake tells Jordan to own the song with his sound and be him. Trace says Wilkes has been doing this awhile and he has a lot of confidence. Blake says this is in Wilkes wheelhouse, but he tells him not to get too comfortable with it. Trace says sometimes it’s the right time for things to happen like Chris Stapleton. Trace says Wilkes is very conversational and that’s something you can’t teach people. He says Jordan has a really good range and control and he thinks this will be the toughest call for Blake because there doesn’t seem to be a clear winner between the two. At rehearsals, Blake says Wilkes is in his wheelhouse, but Jordan has taken extra steps to make this fit in his lane. Blake this is going to be a tough decision and one of the other coaches could steal one of his better artists. Jordan and Wilkes take the stage to perform Nobody to Blame by Chris Stapleton and Wilkes plays the guitar. Kelly says Jordan’s style is so on point and Wilkes has a cool vibe. If she had to pick one, she doesn’t know. Alicia says that was really electric and she loved Jordan’s energy and Wilkes is a little more husky and raw. Alicia would choose Wilkes. Adam tells Jordan that Wilkes is one of his favorites and he’s a huge fan of him, but Jordan is a fantastic singer. Blake says they worked their butts off on that and did a great job. Blake says Jordan took every note that was given to him and he nailed it and he has a great energy. Blake says Wilkes has an energy to him to, just in a different way. They both delivered a perfect performance. Blake says he just has to make a gut decision and the winner of this battle is…Wilkes. Our final battle of the night is from Team Alicia, Britton Buchanan vs Jaclyn Lovey. Alicia has given them the song Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. Alicia gives tips on phrasing and Shawn says Jaclyn did a couple of falsetto breaks and they were nice and she should let them shine. Shawn says she has a beautiful tone. Shawn tells Britton to smile because it will help him calm down. Alicia says Britton can push himself and reach notes he thinks he can’t reach. At rehearsals, Alicia says Jaclyn seems comfortable and she’s owning it and Britton sounds great too and they complement each other because they are different. She’s going to make this decision based on who makes this song their own and who’s ready for the next step. Britton and Jaclyn take the stage to sing Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran. Adam says he blames Blake for not getting a shot at Britton in the blinds, and Jaclyn is a revelation to him. Blake says both of their performances and stage presence is timeless. Kelly thinks Britton is an insane vocalist, but she thinks they are underestimating Jaclyn. Kelly says if she had a steal, she’d be stealing Jaclyn if she were up for grabs. Alicia says she is so proud of them. She says Britton has such a lived in voice and that’s something that is so powerful and she was far better than he was in rehearsal. Alicia says she is a fan of Jaclyn’s voice and she makes people feel there is a sweetness in the world. The winner of this battle…is Britton. Jaclyn thanks Alicia and says she taught her so many things and she’s just thankful for the opportunity. Blake hits his button to steal. Blake says she reminds him of a young Cher. Jaclyn has now joined Team Blake!
  8. We pick up after the POV ceremony. Jesse tells us he had no choice, Hamza swore on his fiances life that he’d save him and he went back on his word. He had to let people know. Hamza says Jesse brought his wife into the game and he thinks he’s so slick. He says keep the game, game and don’t make it personal. Olivia says now that Jesse has made a scene, she can just sit back and let him dig his grave a little deeper. Will and Hamza are talking and Hamza says he’s disrespectful and he was fine with the speech until he made it personal. He says it made it so much easier to vote him out. All Hamza has to do is sit in his HOH room and chill. Maddy asks if Jesse planned that and Jesse asks how she felt about the speech. Maddy doesn’t know if that was smart or if it put a bigger target on his back. Jesse says it might not have been smarter but if they feel more comfortable siding with him over Hamza, then they should do. Jesse says it’s a win win to keep him around. Maddy says she doesn’t know. Merron says as HOH, you get your own bed, an MP3 player, and when someone else wins HOH he wants to see what they have on their MP3 players because that’s how he’s going to judge them. Merron says Hamza has the fire on the music player. Paras tells Derek she doesn’t know about this. Derek says they have the votes, they have him, Kaela, and Paras so that’s three. Derek says Hamza is the one who brought his wife into the game. Paras says she’ll see how it works out. Derek says we know we’ll be here next week, but we want to go as far as we can. We’re playing the game now. Kaela is in the red rose room changing and Derek comes in and says Olivia never talks to him, but she told him today nice sweater. Kaela says Derek is getting emotional over Jesse. Kaela tells him not to ruin his game over Jesse. Kaela is not going to ruin her game if the house chooses to throw Jesse out. Kaela says if Olivia gets HOH next week, they will be up. Kaela says she isn’t here to protect anyone else except for her and Derek. Arisa says Hamza was HOH this week and by the end of the night, the house will send either Jesse or Olivia packing. A few days ago it was Veronica’s birthday and the HG wanted to make a cake and do something special, but it got out of hand. They have yellow balloons and they bring Veronica in blindfolded. She wants to know if Will is going to strip for her and he says Magic Will. Alejandra says hang on everyone, this party is about to get weird. The HG are in the hot tub and they are playing truth or dare. It’s a lot of daring the girls to kiss each other. Upstairs in the WA, Jesse is talking to Olivia and he’s saying he likes a girly girl, the make-up and hair. They start talking about why Jesse is target. Olivia says she’s been trying to keep from getting distracted by Jesse and she is trying to keep herself from toughing him. It’s not personal, it’s just her trying to play the game. Jesse looks frustrated and Olivia says they had chemistry at the start, but she backed off because he can be persuaded so easily. Then Paras wonders in and back out. Jesse and Olivia stare at each other and then Jesse says ok, let’s hit the hot tub. Kaela, Paras, Veronica, and Erica are talking about their make-out session. Kaela says Veronica was her first make out with a girl and Veronica says she’s a great kisser. Kaela says tell that to Derek. Erica says girls are much better kissers than guys. Will, Paras, Kaela, and Maddy are talking and Will tells them Hamza wants Jesse out. Paras says Hamza already put up who wanted to target. Kaela says Hamza doesn’t get a vote. Paras says they aren’t there to play Hamza’s game, Paras doesn’t get why Hamza wants to switch anyway. Arisa says before we get to the vote, let’s see how they handle the task of cleaning a very dirty house. Merron calls everyone to the living room. He reads that it’s time to put their cleaning skills and their dancing skills to the test. When the music plays they must clean and dance. If they complete the task, they will get a tasty reward. Paras says this is pretty cool, but she’s kind of tired of it already. They are complaining about they are exhausted and their heads hurt. The music ends and they said it wasn’t easy but they rocked out. Their reward is to order from Skip the Dishes. The delivery guy rings the doorbell, enters, and reveals their food. The HG thank Big Brother and dig in. Alejandra and Olivia are talking and Ali says she thinks Olivia is ok. Olivia doesn’t want to campaign because she thinks it’s tacky and it seems like begging. She wants to keep her pride. Olivia goes to talk to Maddy and Maddy says she doesn’t know what she’s going to do yet, but it’s cool Olivia did come and talk to her. Hamza and Jesse go to the HOH room and Jesse tells us he’s at a point where he’ll say or do anything to stay in the game. Hamza tells him he has a few who will vote however he wants them to. Jesse says if he stays and wins HOH, he’s willing to put up whoever Hamza wants. Jesse says he knows Hamza wants a big move, but that only last temporarily. Hamza tells Jesse he respects Jesse coming to him. Veronica comes in and Jesse continues his pitch by saying he doesn’t want to be affiliated with big targets in the house. He’d work with them and he thinks they should trust him 100%. Hamza says if we keep you, then you have to put up the showmances. Jesse says done and Hamza says you’re ok with that? Jesse says they are good people, but whatever. They have to go at some point. Veronica says that was the smartest thing he’s ever said. Jesse says he was playing for the wrong team. Jesse is in the red rose room talking to Paras, Maddy, Kaela, and Derek and he’s telling them they are screwed if they vote him out. He tells them there’s a tight four on the other side with Hamza and they are gunning for Derek next. It’s time to check in and get the live vote. Olivia thanks everyone for her being there and she tells the HG she wants to stay and play. Jesse talks to the group he previously talked to and tells them to put the plan in an action and keep him. It’s time to vote! Merron votes to evict Jesse. Derek votes to evict Olivia. Alejandra votes to evict Jesse. Maddy votes to evict Jesse. Paras votes to evict Jesse. Veronica votes to evict Olivia. Kaela votes to evict Jesse. Will votes to evict Jesse. Ryan votes to evict Jesse. Erica votes to evict Jesse. Johnny votes to evict Jesse. With a vote of 9-2 Jesse has been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. Arisa says tough break! She says you went from completely safe to evicted. What happened? Jesse says he spoke all the logic he could to those people, but they didn’t want to hear it. Arisa says Veronica and Derek voted to keep him, but the others didn’t. Why do you think that was? Jesse says he knew Veronica was because she told him she would and he was banking on it. But Kaela and Paras wouldn’t commit. The HG go into the backyard and there are three “displays” set up with three former HG, Ika, Sabrina, and Kevin. The HG are screaming and excited. Derek doesn’t understand why everyone is so excited. There are plaques in front of the “displays” and they are trying to memorize what they are wearing and the “rooms” around them. They only had 5 minutes to look at the displays. It’s time for the HOH comp! What was the name on the envelope that Ika was holding in her hand? The answer was Jon. Everyone was correct. 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. Kevin had the veto around his neck, true or false? Answer is false, everyone is correct. That’s all for tonight! Join us Monday to find out who is the new HOH! And next week is a Double Elimination!
  9. We pick up after the nomination ceremony and Hamza tells us he put up Olivia because the whole house wanted her up. Then he shocked the house by putting Jesse on the block. It’s time to break up the popular kids who had it too easy for too long. He’s tired of them controlling the votes. Jesse is pissed that he’s nominated. He didn’t know until a minute before the ceremony. We see Derek talking to Jesse and Jesse saying it doesn’t make sense to nominate him. Jesse says he had no time to talk to Hamza and this doesn’t make sense. Jesse thought they made an alliance and he doesn’t know what Hamza is doing. On the inside he is freaking out a little. He wants to talk to Hamza and see if he’s the target or if there’s another plan. Hamza tells Jesse if it’s close in a POV he’ll bow out and let him have it. Hamza tells us he’s just telling Jesse what he wants to hear. He doesn’t know who his target is and he wants to see how Jesse handles the pressure. Jesse leaves and Hamza whispers shots fired. Olivia goes and talks to Hamza and says she totally gets his decision and it makes complete sense. She tells him if she wins, then she’s going to take herself off. She asks if Hamza wins veto if he’s going to keep it the same and he says he has a bigger plan. He wants to see how the veto plays out, but he’s not here to do what the house wants. He wishes her luck and if she takes herself off, then it makes his plan easier. Paras is talking to Jesse and she says she’s afraid Hamza would take Olivia off and put Derek next to him. Jesse says Hamza is an idiot. Paras tells us she has been playing both sides, but now that Jesse is on the block she’s kind of freaked out. She says wake up Jesse, you’re a target! Jesse tells Paras about the alliance he made with Hamza along with Derek and Will. Jesse tells Paras he’s good, he’s not worried, everything works out. Paras says Jesse! You should be worried! Derek goes to talk to Hamza and Hamza tells him that move was not meant to be a shot at him. Derek wants to know if Hamza is wins veto if he’s going to take Jesse down and Hamza says yes. Derek says I don’t want to ask you to swear on Caroline and Hamza says I will. Hamza tells us if Derek wants to bring his fiance’s name into the game, then he’ll tell him what he wants to hear. Will peeks in and leaves and they call him in. Hamza tells us he’s telling Derek Jesse is safe, but no one is safe. He’s trying to cause as much chaos and confusion as possible. Will comes in and Hamza says if they’re going to be in an alliance together they have to keep it low key and take jabs at each other. Will says ok and Derek says he feels a lot better. Derek leaves. Will asks Hamza if he was just feeding Derek bull. Hamza says the best case scenario is to leave nominations the same and make up their mind later in the week who they want to get out. It’s time to sit back and eat hummus and watch what happens. Jesse, Derek, and Kaela are talking and Kaela says she thinks Hamza wants to backdoor someone, her or Derek next to Jesse. Derek doesn’t think so. Derek recaps his conversation with Hamza to Jesse and Kaela and Jesse says that doesn’t make sense. Derek says Hamza has never waivered that Olivia was the target and Kaela says it’s a game and you say anything. Alejandra comes in and Jesse says he just doesn’t understand the noms at all and she says she doesn’t either. Jesse says well Big Brother is starting, start your engines. It’s time to pick players for the veto competition. Hamza draws Derek’s name. Olivia draws Ryan. Jesse draws Erica. Hamza chooses Maddy to be the host. Jesse, Hamza, and Derek all go into the catacombs and Jesse says it doesn’t make sense to go after each other. Hamza says if we all suck and don’t win veto, Olivia still goes home. It’s time for the veto competition! We have a garden in the backyard and there are balls frozen in ice. Maddy comes out dressed as a tomato. The HG have to run across a balance beam and some vegetables to “the other guys” freezer and use a tool to chip through the block of ice to free their ball. Once they have their ball they have to run back and throw it to knock down targets in their garden. After they knock down 4 targets, they can search their garden for a key to unlock a larger tool. The first HG to knock down all of their targets wins the power of veto. AND, Wendy’s will also give the winning HG $5,000. They are all over at the freezer chipping away. Olivia says she’s stronger than the average woman and she isn’t make much progress. Erica says the guys are ice cold psychos. Hamza is the first to get a ball free. Hamza throws his ball three times before knocking down his first target. Jesse makes it across and he gets his first target. Hamza and Jesse go back to get another ball and Derek knocks down his first target. Derek tells us Hamza swore Jesse was safe, but he wants to win this to take his boy off the block. Hamza has his second ball. Hamza and Jesse both have their second ball and Olivia is frustrated because she’s still on her first ball. Ryan says Hamza is a mad man as he gets his first ball. Hamza has his third ball. Ryan gets his first target and says someone pass him a bacon cheeseburger already and he will call it a day. Hamza knocks down his third target. Jesse gets his third. Hamza comes back and gets his fourth target and Jesse is right behind. Jesse starts searching for the key in the garden because he thinks the bigger tool will help him take home the win. Hamza has another ball and has knocked down his fifth target and he has two more. Jesse says Hamza is running away with the veto and he needs to find that key. Jesse is still looking for his key and he tells us he needs to take this risk to make up some time. Hamza gets another ball and he knocks it down and he has one target left. Jesse can’t believe it and says searching for that key was a huge waste of time. Jesse says his only choice is to burn through the course and try and catch up. Jesse has a ball and Hamza has his final ball. Olivia is hoping Hamza wins and takes her down and puts a bigger target up next to Jesse. Both Jesse and Hamza miss their targets. They both miss a second time. Hamza hits his last target and he has won the Power of Veto and $5,000. Hamza says he has all the power in the house and King Hamza is going to make this a week to remember. Jesse is super pissed. This is his fifth competition and he hasn’t been able to pull out the win. He doesn’t think anyone has had a worse day. Erica wants to know if he’s more upset about the money or the competition? Jesse says both. He says he’s been crying because he can’t play in comps and he gets to play in two and he doesn’t win either. He says this is brutal! He says Hamza promised to pull him down if he won, but he doesn’t trust him and it sucks that his life in this game is in his hands. Jesse and Derek are talking and Jesse is sure he will stay this week. Jesse says the thing with Hamza is because he’s not kissing his ass Hamza doesn’t like that. Derek is telling Jesse he needs to stay calm. Jesse says he doesn’t want to ask people not to vote him out and Derek says he needs to swallow his pride and talk to people. Hamza says he’s been causing chaos, but he decided to be nice for once and he’s invited the have-nots and a few other friends to Hasbro game night and pizza. Will, Veronica, Merron, Paras, Hamza, Erica, Derek, and Kaela enjoy the pizza and play Hearing Things. Veronica says Will does not make a great partner and Kaela says Derek is good with lips at other things, but not this. Jesse tells us he heard that Hamza has told people that he disrespected him in some kind of way so he wants to talk to Hamza and see if he is still going to use the veto on him. Jesse says he’s just super pissed that he’s sucked in comps and he thinks they have a good crew of strong guys and he hopes they feel the same. Jesse says if you don’t feel that way, just let me know. Hamza says he’s a straight up person and would tell him to his face. Hamza says Jesse is on the block and he’s wondering if he should stay on the block. Hamza says he’s been a big baby and buckled under the stress and he’s failed the test miserably. Hamza talks to Derek and says they don’t want to make waves and piss the house off. Hamza says maybe they should leave things the same. Derek isn’t receptive and says he doesn’t think taking Jesse down would bother the house. Hamza thinks it would and people are lying to Derek. Derek says if Hamza doesn’t take Jesse down it will leave a sour taste in his mouth. Derek tells Hamza if he’s loyal then he needs to stick to his word. Hamza tells us Derek is acting annoying and no one is going to tell him what moves to make. Hamza is talking to Merron and they are discussing Hamza’s talk with Derek. Merron says he is down for getting Jesse out now. He says if Hamza doesn’t take Jesse down or even if he does, Jesse is going to be hunting him regardless. Hamza says it would be a big game move to take him out. Hamza wants to see people’s faces if they make it happen. Hamza and Merron discuss putting Derek up, since Derek is so concerned about Jesse staying. Hamza says he can take Olivia down and put up Derek and see if he still wants Jesse to stay. It’s time for the veto ceremony. Hamza heads to the throne room. He knows he promised Jesse he’d take him off the block, but he’s been pissing him off. He says Olivia hasn’t seemed to be a big threat and maybe he should take her down and put up Derek. Jesse says Hamza promised to take him down and he just hopes he goes through with it. Hamza takes his place at the front and gives Olivia the chance to plead her case first. Olivia says she wouldn’t hate it if he used the veto on her. But he won it fair and square. Jesse congratulates him and he beat them fairly. Jesse says he doesn’t think there’s any debate because Hamza promised to use it on him and he knows Hamza is a man of his word. Hamza has chosen to not use the power of veto. He thinks they are both great competitors, but right now he has to do what’s right for Team Hummus. He starts to complete the meeting but Jesse stops him. Jesse wants to point out a few things that are untrue from Hamza. Jesse says if he won veto he’d use it to pull him off the block because there’s a bigger plan and they promised on personal things and it went to a deeper level and Jesse wouldn’t put his trust in someone who does that. Hamza says this POV ceremony is complete. Jesse says Hamza is all talk and he just started a war. He’s going to do everything in his power this week to stay and take Hamza down. Hamza says Jesse keep running your mouth, but now you made it personal. Hamza says Jesse pack your bags and say goodbye to your buddy Derek.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, the most exciting rounds of battles yet continues. Helping prepare the artists will be some of the biggest names in music: Hailee Steinfeld, Julia Michaels, Trace Adkins, and Shawn Mendes. The challenges will be greater, the training more intense, and the performances some of the greatest our coaches have ever seen. Get ready America, the epic season 14 battles continue right now! Going head to head from Team Kelly is Amber Sauer and Jorge Eduardo. Kelly paired them because they are her two most passionate ones. Kelly has given them the song Starving by Hailee Steinfeld. Hailee says they have a certain chemistry and that’s awesome. Hailee gives staging tips. Kelly says Amber has sass for day and Jorge has a killer voice. Kelly says she has paired two very compelling artists and she’s hoping one just knocks it out of the park and stands out. Amber and Jorge take the stage to perform and the crowd seems to enjoy it. Jorge is playing the guitar. Alicia says she loved their energy and it was cool to see Jorge with the guitar. Alicia would go with Jorge. Adam says they couldn’t be more different. Adam says Amber is a fantastic singer and Jorge playing and singing and doing a duet is so diverse and he thinks he’ll go far in the competition. Adam would go with Jorge. Blake says Amber has an incredible voice and he thought she was having the most fun and he’d go with Amber. Kelly says this was her dumbest move by far. Kelly says Amber rose to the challenge of singing in Spanish and Jorge playing the guitar, and playing well, was impressive. Kelly has chosen the winner as…Jorge. Adam’s first pairing is Davison vs Reid Umstattd. Adam has given them the song Love On the Brain by Rihanna. Adam says they are both amazing and he’s thinking of them like a Blues Brothers or R&B duo. Julie tells them to sing it like they are singing it to someone. Julie says she loved Reid, she was super impressed he could switch from full voice to falsetto, but Davison you could tell he was feeling everything he was singing because of his emotions. During their stage rehearsal, Adam takes their microphone stands and tells them they are too stiff and that they need to sing to the audience. Davison and Reid take the stage to perform for the audience and they get a standing ovation from the crowd and the judges. Blake says Reid dipped into his falsetto and came out of it and it made him go woah! He says Davison was so good and every time he thought Reid was taking it, Davison would come back with a run. Blake says it’s even, but he’d probably go with Davison, but Reid shocked him. Kelly says Davison had some crazy runs and Reid’s intensity was surprising. Kelly says Davison’s runs are like warm biscuits on a Sunday and Reid’s favorite part of that song was so intense and it bites quietly. Kelly could not choose a winner. Alicia says that song totally fit Reid’s vibe and Davison just owned it and flowed with it. Alicia couldn’t pick a winner either. Adam says Reid had incredible confidence and some of that could rub off on Davison and some of Davison’s passion and fire when singing could rub off on Reid. Adam is going to go with the person who surprises him every time he sings, and the winner is…Reid. As the night continued one, the coaches were faced with more tough decisions. We see Team Blake’s pairing of Bransen Ireland vs Jaron Strom performing Head Over Boots by Jon Pardi and Blake says the song was more in Bransen’s zone, but Jaron had the ability to step up to the plate and he appreciates that kind of work ethic. The winner of that battle was Jaron. We then see Team Alicia’s pairing of Johnny Blizz vs Megan Lee singing Versace on the Floor by Bruno Mars and Alicia says Johnny has a phenomenal voice and a huge personality and Johnny was named the winner of the battle. Next is Team Kelly’s pairing of Jamella vs Teana Boston singing Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by The Shirelles. Kelly says she has to realize in the Knock-outs who can hold their ground against the others on her team and the winner is Jamella. Time to check in with Team Alicia and her advisor Shawn Mendes and her first pairing of Jordyn Simone vs Kelsea Johnson. Alicia gave them the song Don’t Let Go by En Vogue. Alicia says these two seem similar until you listen to their voices and see how different they are. Shawn says Jordyn had a confidence, like a full grown woman came out of her which is impressive. As soon as Kelsea started singing, Shawn was like who is this girl? Shawn says Kelsea needs to be a mega star. He thinks they are both so good, they could be the best performance of the night. Alicia changed a few staging things at their stage rehearsal and she says the rehearsal is excellent, but Kelsea’s voice is sore and she could lose her voice. Jordyn and Kelsea take the stage to perform for the audience and the coaches. They get an ovation from the crowd and Adam. Adam says when he hears Kelsea, he hears a lot of Alicia. Jordyn’s power is incredible and he’d probably go with Jordyn, but they are both phenomenal. Blake feels they were evenly matched. Blake says Kelsea has a scratchy, sultry tone and that’s who he’d pick. Kelly says they are both young and for Kelsea to have that tone is insane, and Jordyn’s power is wow. Kelly might go with Kelsea, but they are both rad. Alicia was really impressed with Jordyn’s performance, she felt like she gave it all. Alicia says he knows Kelsea is dealing with what goes with singing long hours, but she handled it with tremendous grace. Alicia is choosing the winner and she selects…Kelsea. Jordyn thanks Alicia for all of her support and Adam hits his button. Kelly hits her button a moment later. Adam says he paved the way. Some lead others follow. Adam says he said decisively before Alicia chose that he’d go with her. Kelly says she only had one steal left and she chooses her for that. Kelly says even if she doesn’t pick her she will steal her later. Adam and Kelly get into a squabble over Jordyn and Carson says it’s time for her to pick her coach. Jordyn picks…Adam. Jordyn joins Team Adam!
  11. Previously, on Big Brother Canada, in a grueling POV challenge, Erica burned the fuel and earned the jewel! Then HOH Ryan pressured Erica to use her veto so he could backdoor Olivia. But when Erica shut the door, Andrew and Hamza were still on the block. With Hamza laying low, Ryan tried one last time to flip the house against him, but his pitch sank like a stone. With the vote looming, the battle of the bedrooms began. With Kaela and Derek in full swing, Olivia got a Paras agreement on a touchy subject…L’Amour. On eviction night, there was one thing the entire house could still agree on, but Andrew didn’t stick around to hear it. Tonight, with the HG “boxed in” who will win the cratest HOH competition of all time? Who will be “singled out” as the next have nots? Will a showmance end up on the block? It’s all happening now on Big Brother Canada! We pick up on day 13 after Andrew’s eviction and Will says what a poor sport. Ryan tells us he’s feeling incredibly guilty about Andrew going home because that wasn’t his plan. His plan to backdoor Olivia backfired and he doesn’t know where he fits in the game. Jesse tells us Andrew just got evicted and he feels fantastic! He’s working with Derek, Kaela, and Paras and he has good relationships with everyone in the house. He’s feeling pretty good. Hamza is feeling good about the vote being unanimous, he made some solid social moves this week, but now it’s time for him to get some power. He wants to win this HOH because he wants people to scramble in this game. He just came off the block and it’s time to turn up the house. We see the start of the HOH competition and Erica is safe for the week. Welcome to the BB Can petting zoo, where you are the precious cargo. Working together and from inside your crate, each team will work together to transfer 8 pieces of each fruit from one end of the yard to the other. One HG will take the fruit halfway and then pass it to their partner through the hole in their crate who will then deposit it at the other end of the yard. The first team to transfer all of their fruit will win and they will decide amongst themselves who will be the new HOH. The pairs competing in this competition are: Hamza and Veronica, Jesse and Alejandra, Olivia and Maddy, Will and Johnny, Paras, and Merron, and Derek and Kaela. Veronica wastes no time getting started. Erica says it’s like bumper cars on steroids. Alejandra really wants to win HOH because she’s been on the block before and it sucks. Paras doesn’t want to win HOH because she’s been working both sides of the house and she doesn’t want to be forced to take a shot at either side. Will barely fits in his box. Kaela says this competition is right up her alley. Kaela says working with Derek is perfect because they are both physically fit and competitive. Ryan announces that in the lead right now are Hamza and Veronica and Kaela and Derek. Hamza wants to win this HOH because he’s tired of people being nice. He wants to pit people against each other. He likes that he’s paired with Veronica because she seems pretty athletic and seems pretty determined to win. Veronica says she’s hell on wheels out there, she’s not losing this one. She’s new to the house but she wants to show people what she’s capable of. Olivia wants to win HOH because the newbies are huge threats and the only way to make sure Veronica or Merron are out the door is if she is in charge. Ryan announces Olivia and Maddy are in last place. Olivia says this comp is ridiculously hard. She can’t see where she’s going and it’s like bumper cars. She doesn’t understand why they have to transfer so many pieces of fruit. Olivia realizes halfway through the competition they aren’t going to win, so they need a new strategy. They decide to block people. Olivia says if they can’t win, then they need to block the newbies to make sure they don’t win. Olivia goes to block Veronica. Veronica tells us she’s putting her blood, sweat, and tears into this competition and nothing and no one is going to stand in her way. Erica and Ryan are discussing how close the competition is. They see Derek and Kaela don’t have many left to transfer. Derek tells Kaela one more red apple and Kaela says all they have to do is get it across the yard and the HOH is theirs. Hamza and Veronica need one more banana. It’s a race back and Hamza and Veronica have won the competition. Ryan congratulates Hamza and Veronica on the win and now they have to decide who gets the HOH. Veronica says she knows Hamza wants to see Carolyn, so she’s giving this one to him. Veronica says this competition was a huge win for her, but it was a selfless thing to do to give the HOH to Hamza and it least it will benefit her game by keeping her safe this week and maybe she can influence his decisions moving forward. Hamza says there are people in this house that feel safe, but this is Big Brother and no one should feel safe. Hamza tells us he just won HOH and he wants to divide the house. He doesn’t like the showmances, and he doesn’t like the floaters. He wants to make everyone feel uncomfortable. He’s sick of tired of everyone going with the house and he’s not afraid to piss anyone off. He’ll hear everyone out, but he’s going to do what’s best for his game. Veronica says even though Hamza is HOH, she propelled him to that win. She showed the other HG what she’s capable of and she’s a force to be reckoned with. She talks to herself and says this is her house and they are all scared of her. Alejandra is mumbling to herself that Hamza might be best case scenario for her, but not with Veronica in his ear. Alejandra is extremely relieved it’s Hamza and not Veronica as HOH. She says it’s going to be a tough week and it’s time to go play nice. Paras says she’s working both sides of the house. She has the “real deal’, and then she has the white room. And in the white room she feels closest with Will and Maddy. Will and Maddy and Paras are talking and Will says Hamza is ready to flip the house upside down. Paras realizes the white room is targeting Olivia. Paras is planting seeds of doubt about Olivia and Will says the white room is about to bounce back and rule the game. Erica and Olivia talking and Erica is saying Hamza is so unpredictable. Olivia tells us Hamza winning is not ideal because she doesn’t know where his head at. He’s a wildcard. Erica says it seems Hamza has gotten closer with Jesse and Derek since they all went to the catacombs. Erica says she doesn’t think Hamza would go for Merron because they are buddies, but that’s who she would like to see gone and Olivia agrees. Olivia tells Erica she doesn’t think she’s on Hamza’s radar and Erica agrees. Olivia tells us she knows nothing about Hamza’s game and that means she could be a potential target. Erica says she’ll talk crap about Olivia saying she’s a horrible competitor and isn’t great socially and if Hamza targets her it’s a waste of a week. Erica will encourage ‘big moves’. Who wants to see Hamza’s HOH room? He has pictures of his parents and his fiancé. He says seeing the picture of Carolyn just made his day so much better. They got the game Hearing Things. Veronica says it’s fun and Ryan agrees. Hamza settles in to watch his video. It’s from Carolyn and she says: Hamz in the cam! She points out her shirt which says Team Hummus. She misses him like crazy, these days feel like years and it has definitely made it even more clear to her how much she loves him and how important he is to her and how excited she is to spend the rest of her life with him. She can’t wait until the day she sees him so she can run and give him the biggest hug and tell him don’t let go. Have fun and she can’t wait to see him. Everyone claps and say how much they love her. Hamza is emotional and tells us this is the hardest thing he’s ever been through. Being so far away from her for this long, she’s his life and he’s a lucky guy. Merron says his first real week of Big Brother has begun and he wants to talk to Hamza. He’s asking if Olivia is the target or if they are getting a showmance out. Merron wants to know Olivia is the back-up plan or the showmance? Hamza says the showmance is the back-up plan. Merron wants to know why Olivia is a threat. Hamza says Olivia is a marathon runner she’s just lingering and getting good with everyone. Plus, she’s napping all the time saying she wants alone time, but she’s really analyzing everything. Hamza says she’s a law student so she’s not dumb and she’s the type of player who can fly under the radar and slide into the end. Merron says but those type of players don’t get any love in the end, so anyone up against her, she’s going to lose. Merron doesn’t feel like Olivia is a threat and people are making her seem more mischevious than she is. Hamza says at the end of the week she’ll be up against Derek or Kaela and we can decide who we want to get out. Merron says that’s a nice feeling and Hamza is the one person he 100% trusts and they agree to have each other’s backs. Welcome, from the BB Can house, it’s Will You Showmance? Please welcome your host, Hamza. We have a newlywed style game set up. This is Will You Showmance, the game that shows you how well you know your partner, whether you’re in a showmance, bromance, or nomance. As HOH, Big Brother asked Hamza to choose four couples to compete and the four couples he chose are: Erica and Merron, Paras and Jesse, Kaela and Derek, and finally Veronica and Will. He’ll ask one member of each team a question and their partner will try and guess the answer. If they get it right they will earn a point. The two teams with the most points will be haves for the week. The two teams with the fewest points will be have-nots for the week. Get ready to play Will You Showmance? First question-If you were taking your partner on a first date outside the Big Brother Canada house, do you think they’d rather go for a romantic dinner or BB Can and Chill? Merron guesses romantic dinner and he is correct. Jesse guesses romantic dinner and he’s correct. Derek guesses BB Can and Chill and he’s wrong. Will guesses BB Can and Chill and he is correct. Erica and Merron, Jesse and Paras, and Will and Veronica all have 1 point. Derek and Kaela have 0. Second question-What did your partner think you would say is their best physical feature? Merron says Erica has very beautiful eyes and he is correct. Jesse guesses Paras’ eyes and he is correct. Derek says they’ve all seen the Kaela twerk so he has to go with “dat booty” and he is correct. Will says her beautiful ass and he is wrong, she said breasts. Merron and Erica and Jesse and Paras each have 2 points. Derek and Kaela and Veronica and Will have 1 point. Will is getting frustrated because he was a have-not the first week and he doesn’t want to do it again. Third question-Does your partner think you’ll be remembered as a comp beast, a strategic mastermind, or a floater? Veronica guesses comp beast and she is correct. Kaela guesses comp beast and she is incorrect, he said mastermind. Paras guesses floater and she is correct. Erica guesses comp beast and she is correct. Merron and Erica and Jesse and Paras have 3 points. Veronica and Will have 2 points, and Derek and Kaela have 1 point. Fourth question-What emoji did your partner say best describes you? Veronica makes a face and sticks her tongue out and she is correct. Kaela guesses the heart eyed emoji and she is incorrect, he said laughing face. Paras guesses a smiley face and she is incorrect, he said weird/funny face. Erica guesses two girls holding hands and she is incorrect, he said cool smiley face with sunglasses. Merron and Erica, Jesse and Paras, and Veronica and Will each have 3 points, and Derek and Kaela have 1 point. Fifth question-Your partner was asked if they’d be willing to be handcuffed to you for an extra point. And if both of you answer yes, then you have to do it for the rest of the night. What do you think they answered? Erica guesses heck yes and she is correct. Paras guesses yes and she is correct. Veronica says yes absolutely and she is correct. Kaela and Derek are too far behind to catch up. They will be have-nots for the week. All the remaining teams are in a three-way tie for first. Final question-Did your partner think you’d be more embarrassed by coming in last in an endurance competition or have your parents see you fool around with someone on the live feeds? Veronica guesses if she came last in an endurance competition and she is correct. Paras guesses her parents seeing her fool around on live feeds and she is correct. Erica guesses her parents seeing her fool around and she is incorrect. Merron and Erica are have-nots for the week. Erica is not happy about being a have-not two weeks in a row. Hamza hands out the handcuffs to the teams. Veronica and Will seem to be good natured about it, Erica and Merron are less than thrilled because they lost, and Paras is excited and Jesse looks less than thrilled. Veronica wants to chat with Hamza. She tells us she’s a big part of the reason Hamza is HOH this week because she was a driving force in that competition so she feels she should have 50% of the say this week. Veronica tells Hamza everyone is down to send Olivia home if that’s where his head is still at, but she also wanted to know what Hamza thinks about putting Alejandra on the block with her. Hamza wants to know why Veronica doesn’t like Ali so much and she says because all she does is play both sides and she’s sketchy about her. Veronica just wants Ali on the block. Hamza says he’s here to cause some chaos so he has to decide if those the best options. Hamza says him and Derek kind of bonded last week so he selects Derek for the Wendy’s meal. Derek says he was on slop last week and he’s going to be on it again this week, so he’s ecstatic to be eating Wendy’s because he knows it’s going to be his last delicious meal for awhile. Derek tells Hamza it sucks being on slop, but it will be better this week because he’ll have Kaela to cuddle with in the catacombs. Hamza says he’s liking his time with Derek right now and he’s thinking Derek could be someone he could work with in the future. Derek tosses out him and Jesse with Hamza and Will as an alliance. Derek is floating Olivia and Ali’s names to Hamza because they were working together, but they’ve been sketchy since. Veronica and Will are taking a bath together and they are squirting bubbles on each other. Veronica says she’s in her happy place when she’s in a bubble bath. They are laughing and having a good time and Hamza comes in and tells them to be quiet and not make a noise because Olivia is coming in next. Olivia says she’ll keep it short and sweet but she feels like they are both straight shooters. Olivia says she hasn’t really talked game with anyone except for basic strategy. Olivia says she has talked and she was thinking the consensus was to get the newbies out. Hamza says he doesn’t want another unanimous vote. Olivia wants to know if she’s going up she’d like to know so she can mentally prepare for it. Hamza says he doesn’t have just one target, he has a bunch of targets in mind, but he’s going to make his own decision. Veronica and Will heard the entire conversation and they high five each other. Jesse and Paras are talking to Hamza and Jesse asks if everyone is talking his ear off. Jesse says why is it I never talk to the HOH? Hamza says Paras wanted to talk to him and she says but he’s here, indicating Jesse. Hamza suggests Jesse could go to the restroom and Jesse says he’s pretty sure they are on the same page. Paras asks Hamza if his mind is already made up. Paras tells Jesse to go to the restroom because she can’t talk with him there. He heads off and she says she only needs two minutes. She whispers to Hamza that she’s down with taking a shot at the other room if that’s what he wants. She just didn’t know how the votes would go and she didn’t want to say anything in front of Jesse. Hamza says they are taking a shot. They high five and hug. Hamza says I promise we’re taking a shot at the other room. Paras also tosses out Olivia and Ali’s names and Hamza asks if she has anyone else in mind. Paras says she thinks Jesse and Derek and Kaela would work with them, but if he has to take a shot she understands. Jesse and Paras switch places and Jesse says he doesn’t talk game a lot, just let him know what he’s thinking and he’ll vote that way. Hamza wants to know what Jesse is thinking though and he responds Ali, Liv, and Ryan are the names getting tossed around the house. Jesse says targeting anyone other than those three would be a mistake because Hamza is in a good place. Jesse thinks they are all in a good place moving forward for another four or five weeks. Paras returns. Alejandra tells us Olivia is her right hand in the house and the person she trusts the most. She needs to talk to Hamza and make sure Olivia isn’t on his radar. Alejandra tells Hamza he can trust her in the game, not just this week but moving forward. Hamza tells Ali that her name has been mentioned a lot. Alejandra says she is tight with Olivia and if he needs an extra number she could be it because her and Olivia think alike. Hamza says he’ll consider it. Alejandra asks if he knows who he’s putting up and he says he has an idea and she’ll see. She asks if it’s people from the red room and he says yeah. People from the red room until now have been feeling pretty safe and it’s time to shake things up. Olivia is in the red room talking while Jesse is listening and laying on a bed. She’s recapping her conversation with Hamza and she says Hamza said he knew who his target was, but he didn’t know who he was putting up. She thinks Hamza is coming for them and she says they have the numbers but she couldn’t tell Hamza that without giving away that there were a bunch of them working together. Jesse says Hamza is the kind of guy who just goes against the house. Jesse wants to know if Hamza would put one of them up and she doesn’t think so. Jesse says he talked to Hamza for maybe five minutes. Hamza tells us he was on the block last week and people were ready to get rid of him, so everyone in the house should feel unsafe. Hamza says the last two weeks have been unanimous votes. This week he’s going to get out who he wants to get out. Hamza is considering nominating Ryan because he put him on the block last week, made him a have-not, and sent Andrew home. He’s considering nominating Olivia because she’s a smart player, she knows what she’s doing, and she’ll float by until the end. She has to go. He’s considering nominating Alejandra because she’s a flippy floppy player. One day she’s against you and the next she’s with you. She has no loyalty and that’s what is most important to him. He’s considering nominating Jesse because he’s a physical threat and he’s got a good social game. He’s smarter than people perceive. Aside from that, putting him on the block will split the house in half. A line is going to get drawn in the sand. He’s going to out the person that he wants out. It’s time for the nomination ceremony! Hamza has nominated Olivia and Jesse. As Jesse takes his seat he says “Jokes!”. Hamza says he chose to nominate Olivia because she’s smart and strategic and it’s week 3 and he doesn’t know where her allegiances lie. Hamza says he nominated Jesse because he’s a physical and social player and at this point in the game, he doesn’t know where his head is at. Sometimes in this game, you just have to trust the process. Jesse gets up and says it doesn’t make any sense man but he goes to give Hamza a hug. Jesse tells us Hamza just nominated him for eviction and he is shocked! He thought they were on good terms. What the hell?!? Now he has to go out and try his hardest to win the veto so he can take himself off the block this week. Olivia tells us she didn’t think she’d be on the block this early, but she did see this coming. She feels like her back is sort of against the wall at this point and she really feels like she has to go out and win this POV. Who will win the Power of Veto? Will Jesse or Olivia fight their way off the block? Find out Wednesday!

    Tonight, get ready for battles like you’ve never seen before. For the first time ever, you’ll see the artists pairings revealed and our coaches will take the training further than ever before. Joining the action will be some of the hottest names across music: Shawn Mendes, Julia Michaels, Hailee Steinfeld, and Trace Adkins. Expectations will be high, leading to some of the best battles we’ve ever seen. Decisions will be tougher. The steals will be bigger. The most exciting round of battles yet starts right now! Let’s meet the first artist from Team Alicia as he learns which artist he’ll be battling, Jamai. He goes to find out who he has been paired with and he sees on screen Sharane Calister. Shawn Mendes is Team Alicia’s advisor. Alicia gave Jamai and Sharane the song Mercy by Shawn Mendes. Shawn says Sharane is talented, she had such control and she was just flawless. Jamai had sheer strength, especially in the higher octave. Alicia gives Sharane tips on tempo and Shawn advises Jamai to get emotionally invested in his verse. We then see Alicia at the stage rehearsal with Sharane and Jamai. Alicia gets to see their outfits, how they interact with each other, and they also have vocal coaches and choreographers. Alicia thinks this battle is going to steal the show because there is so much power in it and so much energy. Jamai and Sharane have just taken the stage to perform Mercy by Shawn Mendes and the crowd seemed to enjoy it. It’s time to see what the coaches have to say. Adam is feeling Jamai’s trench. Adam says there were moments with Jamai where he was like wow and Sharane has a fullness in her voice that fills the room. Adam says it’s a dead heat. Blake says Sharane doesn’t even need a microphone and they are both incredible vocally and he doesn’t know what Alicia is going to do. Maybe he’d go with Jamai. Kelly says they really complemented each other and they could also both be forces. Kelly gravitates more toward Sharane. Alicia has the final words. She is supremely proud of that performance and she thinks Shawn will be blown away. Alicia says Jamai is a shocker for her and Sharane’s performance was wow. Alicia is ready to pick her winner. She selects the winner…Sharane. Now it’s time to look at Team Kelly and her advisor, Hailee Steinfeld. They away Team Kelly’s first pairing, Brynn Cartelli vs Dylan Hartigan. Kelly has given them the song …Ready for It? by Taylor Swift. Hailee says Brynn is the real deal, you can just feel her presence and energy. Dylan has the swagger and she loves it. Kelly gives Dylan tips on styling on notes. Kelly advises Brynn on stance to ensure her vocals don’t seem strained. Kelly gets a look at Brynn and Dylan’s stage rehearsal. She thinks Dylan came in more solid than he did in rehearsals. Kelly says these two did their homework, they are nailing it and she thinks either can take this battle. Brynn and Dylan have taken the stage and performed …Ready for It? by Taylor Swift. The crowd is pumped up from that performance. Alicia says that voice inside of Brynn is crazy and Dylan has all kinds of swag. Adam says Brynn is a star and Dylan’s energy is so infectious. Adam would go with Brynn. Blake says Dylan is like one of the dude’s from Grease. Blake thinks Dylan is a really good singer and Brynn doesn’t sound like anyone else and she has a lot of power and energy and she’s a star. Kelly says Dylan does have a really solid voice and there’s this old soul, really cool vibe about Brynn. The winner of the battle is…Brynn. Carson reminds the coaches that Dylan is available to steal. He thanks Kelly for working with him and it’s been a pleasure. Dylan heads off stage and Blake hits his button. Dylan will be joining Team Blake. Let’s take a look at Team Blake and his advisor, Trace Adkins. They are waiting for Blake’s first pairing of Jesslee vs Kyla Jade. Blake has given them the song One Last Time by Ariana Grande. Blake tells Kyla that she’s not background anymore and Trace tells her to hit the song full voice. Trace says Jesslee is just powerful. Jesslee and Kyla step on stage to perform One Last Time by Ariana Grande. Kelly gets out of her seat to dance as they perform. Kelly says she loved that. Kelly loves that Kyla makes it look effortless. Adam says he was thinking the same thing. Kelly says Jesslee is amazing, she is phenomenal. Kelly is a fan of Kyla. Alicia says that was a beautiful testament what Jesslee just did and she did an incredible job. Alicia says Kyla needs to work on not closing down her greatness and she did a beautiful job. Blake says says Jesslee had a grip on the song and that’s what Kyla needed to figure out for herself. He says they were both incredible. The winner of this battle is…Kyla. For Team Adam, he brought in advisor Julia Michaels. Adam chose to pair Rayshun Lamarr and Tish Haynes Keys. Adam is giving them the song Sweet Thing by Rufus and Chaka Khan. Adam says the harmonies in this song are crazy. Adam advises Rayshun not to try and outdo Tish, just be himself. Adam says this will be one of the best battles. Julie says they are both incredible. Adam is heading to Tish and Rayshun’s stage rehearsal. Adam advises them to keep the magic. He also tells them to keep the energy and original intent of it. Adam says this is the dumbest and smartest decision he’s ever made because they are going to blow everyone away. Rayshun and Tish are now stage performing Sweet Thing by Rufus and Chaka Khan. Adam stands through most of the performance. Adam says that moment that just happened couldn’t have happened if they both weren’t together. Kelly says their range is in the stratosphere. If she had to pick, then she’d pick Tish, but she’d love them both on her team. Blake says it was equal and Tish is such a phenomenon but Rayshun stepped up. Alicia says this sucks. She says Rayshun’s voice is really special and fresh. Alicia says there was a moment in the earlier parts that was tender for Tish. Adam says this song was in Tish’s range but Rayshun really stepped up and showed who he was. Adam is choosing the winner as…Rayshun. Tish is up for grabs and she thanks Adam for turning for her, and Kelly, and she thanks Adam for the advice. Kelly hits her button and steals Tish. Tish is now on Team Kelly. Next we have Shana Halligan and Christiana Danielle from Team Alicia. Alicia has given them the song Use Somebody by Kings of Leon. Alicia gives the band some tips and then advises Shana and Christiana on arrangement tips. Shawn says Christiana has an incredible tone and he couldn’t look away from her. Shawn says Shana has one of the most unique voices he’s ever heard in his life. Alicia is now with them at the stage rehearsal for Shana and Christiana. Alicia says Christiana added more of herself and Shana continues to bend and change the melody. Alicia says this is going to be a really hard choice. Shana and Christiana take the stage and perform Use Somebody by Kings of Leon. Alicia gets on her feet as they finish. Adam says there’s something about Christiana that draws him in to what she does. Adam says Shana is a very unique singer. Adam would pick Christiana. Kelly says you don’t get those types of performances at award shows. Kelly says Shana is mythological and Christiana is Nefertiti-like. Blake says that performance was very equal and they were different in their approach. Blake would pick Shana because she cast a spell on him. Alicia loves this version of that song and she loved they could deconstruct it and take it to another place. She loves the battle rounds because you can be creative. Alicia picks as her winner…Christiana. Let’s meet Kelly’s final pairing of the night, Jackie Foster vs D.R. King. Kelly has given them the song Sign of the Times by Harry Styles. Hailee says they were absolutely incredible and when they had their solo parts they made it their own. Kelly gives them both tips on building the song and notes. Hailee says what they did with this song is absolutely amazing. Kelly is with Jackie and D.R. at their stage rehearsal. Kelly says D.R. has incredible range and Jackie took her by surprise. Kelly says they are nailing the harmonies. She says it’s a toss-up because they are both so talented. Jackie and D.R. take the stage and perform Sign of the Times by Harry Styles. Kelly is on her feet very quickly. The crowd and all four coaches are on their feet. Alicia says that was her favorite battle today. Alicia says D.R. is a total stunner and Jackie has a gorgeous roundness to her voice. Adam says that was a special, special thing and they are both just that good. Adam says he couldn’t take his eyes off Jackie, and no disrespect to D.R., but Jackie was a revelation. Blake says there’s so much pressure in these battles and the confidence they have goes a long way. Blake agrees with Adam that Jackie is the discovery for him. Kelly says she loves both of them. Kelly says when D.R. hits those notes it’s effortless. But then Jackie comes in and Kelly says she’s so screwed. Kelly chooses the winner as…D.R. King. Jackie is available to steal and Adam hits his button, with Blake and Alicia right behind. It’s a triple steal. Adam says he thinks they can win this thing and it’s a definitive moment for this season. Adam knows how to win this show with her. Alicia says she didn’t compete with D.R., she stood on her own and Alicia turned in the blinds for her too and this is a chance for her to make it right. Blake says he loves Jackie and it was about this point in the show when a little girl named Chloe last year took a chance and picked him and they won the show. Jackie now gets to pick her new coach. She says this is such a hard decision and she picks…Adam. Jackie now joins Team Adam.
  13. Previously on Big Brother Canada, after Andrew’s aggressive assault failed to flip the house, Big Brother sent out one HG then brought in two more! No one bought the Gate Crashers story, least of all Olivia. At the HoH competition, the HG hit the bar, and the bar hit back. In the end, Ryan was toasted the new HoH. Thinking his bearded buddy had his back, Andrew wasn’t ready for the news. Feeling cornered, the Grizzly Bear got steamed, which made him an easy target. Then, Lone Wolf Hamza joined the hunt when he volunteered for the block. And for Ryan, the hunt was over. At the nom ceremony, Ryan followed the script and put up Andrew and Hamza for eviction. Tonight, is Big Red’s power play all that it’s quacked up to be? Who will raid Big Brother’s tomb for the most valuable jewel of all? Is Big Brother’s Back Door open for business? It’s all happening now on Big Brother Canada! We pick up with Ryan’s nominations of Andrew and Hamza. Ryan tells us he nominated the two people he’s closest to because the house is against them., but that’s what the house wanted. Ryan says he has to think long term and the only way to get the HG behind him is to go with what they want. He says don’t worry, Canada, he has a plan so neither of these guys home. Hamza says he nominated himself because he wanted to make sure he could play in the veto. That way he can play in the veto, win, and keep himself in the house. Andrew says he knew he was going to be nominated but at the end of the day he doesn’t want to go home. Andrew says he is humbled, but annoyed and he thinks this is a weak move by Ryan. He thought they were loyal to each other but obviously, he was wrong. Andrew is talking to Alejandra and she tells us if he’s looking for sympathy, he won’t get it from her. He put her in that position last week. Andrew says he has to talk to Ryan because he’s his boy. Andrew tells Ryan that Canada is going say Ryan put his buddy up. Ryan says there’s still veto and Andrew says what if he doesn’t win. Ryan says let’s see what happens, but he’s trying to put something in place, but he can’t do it without Andrew or Hamza pulling themselves off. Andrew tells Hamza that Ryan says he has a plan and he has to trust the beard. Hamza says putting them both up is risky. He’s confident he’ll win Veto. Andrew says he’s comfortable, having a good time. He compares himself to Shaq and gets no reaction (or recognition from Hamza). He tells Canada he learned his lesson and is going to be calm and play it cool. Time to pick the POV players! Johnny (Ryan), Erica (Hamza), and Jesse (Andrew) have been chosen and they will join Hamza, Andrew, and Ryan. Ali will be hosting the POV competition. Ryan grossly reveals he hasn’t showered because he’s been too busy chatting. Ryan says since the three chosen to play in veto stand in the way of his plan so he has to ask them to throw the comp. Ryan has to go to each one of them and convince them to throw the competition. He thinks he’s convinced Johnny to throw the comp, now he has to do the same with Erica. He thinks she believed his claim that she would get a target on her back if perceived as a comp threat. When Ryan talks to Jesse, Jesse doesn’t seem like he’s on board and he’s immediately suspicious of why Ryan wants him to throw it. The three Veto players start to think there’s a backdoor plan in play. Ryan comes in and says, “Hey Kid…” He talks to everyone in the red rose bedroom and tells them it’s better to throw the comp and let one of them pull themselves off because the other will go home. Ryan says “Dad says” he’s seen every season on of Big Brother and the backdoor does not work. They laugh at him after he leaves. Ryan then goes to Andrew and tells him that whatever he hears, he needs to know Ryan has his back. Ryan says if something goes wrong, then just know whoever sits next to Andrew will be the one going home. It’s the veto competition! It’s a Tomb Raider themed comp. It’s time for the HG to channel their inner Lara Croft. They will start with their hands tied and they’ll have to free themselves. They will then use a bow and arrow to get their first puzzle piece. Then they’ll have to search through the jungle for the rest of their puzzle pieces. They will then assemble their puzzle and memorize the code on the puzzle to unlock the Tomb of the Mother of Death. The winner will also get an advanced screening of the movie before it hits theaters and $5000!. Hamza says it’s time to put up or shut up. Andrew says it’s up to him to save himself. Ryan says they had a plan to throw it, but $5,000 is a lot of money so the plan is out the window. They all start freeing themselves and they get moving. Johnny is the first to get free and Andrew is the last to free himself. Erica is motivated to win and is the first to knock off her first puzzle piece and now she’s off to find the rest. Jesse is the second to knock off his puzzle piece and quickly finds his first puzzle piece from the jungle. Hamza, Andrew, and Ryan all knock their pieces off. Johnny is still struggling with his bow and arrow. Johnny finally gets his piece off and everyone is searching the jungle for their puzzle pieces. The rules say you can only bring one piece back at a time. Erica is trying to find as many pieces as she can so she doesn’t have to expend a lot of energy going back and forth plus searching. Andrew and Ryan are breathing heavy and Ryan says he does not work out like this. Andrew is exhausted. Ryan says he can barely stand and he can barely breathe. He has no chance of winning. In order for him to backdoor Olivia, he needs Hamza or Andrew to win and pull themselves off the block. Hamza is struggling too, he says this comp is no joke. Andrew is barely moving and says he can’t do this he rolls over the hill on the other side of the wall and he’s breathing heavy. He doesn’t know how he’s going to make it through. He’s going back over and falls hard and is struggling. Ryan asks if he’s ok and Andrew is just moaning. Pulling himself up from the ditch leaves him too tired to search for puzzle pieces. People are still cheering Andrew on and tell him to keep fighting. He says he’s trying his best, but this is not the competition for him. Ryan says since Andrew is out, he needs Hamza to pull out the win. Hamza is starting to work on his puzzle. Erica now has all her pieces and is working on her puzzle. Hamza says he sees that Erica is in the lead and there is no way she’s taking it from him. It’s time to kick it into a higher gear so he can win and take himself off the block. Jesse and Johnny are also working on their puzzles. Erica has her puzzle together and she’s memorizing symbols so she can input them into the lock. She leaps over the wall but doesn’t get it on the first try. Hamza sees Erica’s mistake but he’s still working on his puzzle. Erica takes a second look and runs back and this time she is successful. Erica wins POV! And $5000! Tomb Raider is about a female powerhouse and that’s her in the game right now. Hamza says she beasted and feasted but this sucks. The HG go inside in the living room and they see a message from two of the actors from Tomb Raider and everyone congratulates Erica. Ryan says he needed Andrew or Hamza to win the veto, but they didn’t do it. He blames BB for offering the $5k. Hamza says he was two pieces away. Ryan says Erica winning ruined everything he set in motion and it’s going to take awhile to get over it. [Not as long as it will take for Andrew. – Morty] Veronica is rapping and Merron is providing the beat for Will, Hamza, and Andrew. Ryan comes in and joins in as well. Veronica says she loves to rap. Will joins in for a couple verses and everyone is laughing. The HG come downstairs and there are snacks and balloons and a huge twister mat on the floor. Jesse says twister is one of those games that brings HG together…literally. Kaela says she is enjoying watching Derek, all she could do was stare. Will says twister is like Big Brother, you always have to be aware and you can’t let your guard down. One by one the HG fall until Paras is the winner of twister and she says it was fun to step away from the game for a moment and get closer to Jesse. Paras and Jesse are in the red rose room and they are having a pillow fight. Paras says Jesse is not the type of guy she typically goes for. Jesse says she’s cute and they jive well, but he doesn’t think a public showmance is good for his game. Paras says she doesn’t know what to think yet. She knows what she came here for. Neither wants a showmance and yet they cannot help flirting with each other. Ryan tells Hamza if it wasn’t for that $5,000, everyone would have thrown it. Or at least that’s what everyone was telling him. Ryan tells Hamza some people lied to his face. He’s still going to try and make it happen and have Erica pull him down.. Hamza says those chances are slim. Erica and Hamza are talking and Erica is reassuring Hamza they have the numbers. Hamza tells her he thinks they need Andrew in the game and she disagrees. She knows she can bounce ideas off him and that he’s super cool and not bothered by anything. She thinks they will be fine without Andrew and if she thinks Hamza is the target she will let him know. Hamza says he’s happy Erica won, but he would be happier if he won himself. Ryan talks to Erica and asks if she’d pull someone down if she knew the replacement nominee would go home. Erica says it depends on who. Ryan throws out Maddy and says he thinks people would vote her out. Erica doesn’t believe people would vote out Maddy over Andrew. Ryan says he thinks because of the conversations he’s having, they would. She could remove an actual power player. Ryan asks if she would make that move and she says she’d think about it. Erica talks to Andrew and she says she’s proud of him. Andrew says it’s all love and Erica says she’s just been trying to keep emotions out of the game and just stay in her head. Andrew says he understands but he wouldn’t be him if he didn’t say he’d be thrilled if she pulled him off the block. Erica can see he’s a genuine and honest person, but she has to do what’s best for her personal game. Andrew says whatever happens, he’d just love to stay another week. It’s time for the veto ceremony. Erica is in the throne room and she’s reviewing her options. Erica knows the house wants Hamza and Andrew nominated and she’s not sure she wants to ruffle feathers yet. Ryan wants Erica to use the veto and if she doesn’t he’s screwed. Erica is now in front of the HG and she gives them an opportunity to tell her why she should use veto. Andrew has a little poem and says he’s given her meals filled with love and held her in his arms with big bear hugs and he’d love for her to put the Veto in his hands. Hamza congratulates her for winning the Veto and asks her to save him because there’s still more episodes of Hamz in the Cams to come. Erica has decided not to use the power of veto. Erica says their game play has landed them in the position they are in. She says she has decided to respect Ryan’s nominations and the overall consensus of the house. Andrew feels betrayed and like a sucker and it’s looking pretty rough. Hamza feels pretty safe on the block against Andrew and it’s going to be a unanimous vote and Hamza is going to stay in the house. Ryan says he’s screwed. He tried his best but has a lot of work to do to recover but. he’s like a duck in water, calm on top, and furious underneath.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, it’s the biggest night of the season yet as the coaches complete their teams with some of the best voices they’ve ever heard. Adam needs 2 more artists to fill his team, while Alicia, Kelly, and Blake have one spot each. Who will get the final spots and the opportunity to work with our super star coaches in the upcoming battles? Let’s find out! Our first artist of the night is Genesis Diaz from Miami, FL. Her parents were both in a band in Cuba when they were children. They gave up music for their children. Genesis is going to perform Praying by Kesha. The audience seems to love the performance but the judges are listening closely. Adam hits his button at the end with Blake immediately behind. Adam says he was the spark and Blake came smoldering after and Genesis should remember that when she’s picking her coach. Adam says he thinks Genesis is tremendous. Blake says he has one spot left on his team and he would love to have her complete team Blake. Adam says as he listened he came up with all of these ideas for her and he’d love to be her coach. Kelly asks Genesis who she picks as her coach? Genesis says she’s going to have to pick…Adam. The next artist is Sharane Calister from Des Moines, IA. She grew up on gospel music and sang with her twin sister in the choir. She was placed in foster care at age 10 and she was adopted, but she was separated from her twin. She sings Make it Rain by Ed Sheeran. Alicia hits her button. Alicia tells Kelly to push her button and Kelly gets in at the last second. Kelly says she turned around because it’s disrespectful not to turn around for some like Sharane. Kelly says she’s just weary of not getting picked over Alicia. Kelly says she can tell she’s a fan of Alicia. Alicia says that was so powerful and her voice was perfection. Alicia says whatever her journey has been has led her to share that performance. Kelly says her type of story is what makes great artists. Blake says who do you pick as your coach, Sharane? Sharane says she loves Kelly, but she has to go with Alicia. Team Alicia is now full. Next, we have Dallas Caroline from Santa Rosa, CA. She was named after a country song. She was able to play CMA fest last summer and that was a dream come true for her. She’s going to sing Always On My Mind by Willie Nelson. Kelly hits her button fairly quickly. Adam hits his button a little over halfway through. Blake is the last to turn. Adam says he doesn’t know how it looks for him, but Dallas is so great and the core of who she is as a singer is there and he’s going to fight for her because she’s awesome. Kelly says they each only have one more spot on their team and that speaks to her talent that they all turned. Kelly says she has a quality that is missing in country music. Blake says when he sees someone young like Dallas performing Always On My Mind, it’s a sacred country song and he can go wow, that’s the next Leann Rimes. That’s why he wants to be her coach on the show. Alicia asks who she picks as her coach. Dallas thanks them all and says this is crazy. She picks…Blake. Blake’s team is now full! The next artist to take the stage is Allen Pride Bowser from Philadelphia, PA. His grandmother got him a keyboard and that was his outlet. He got into an altercation at 17 and he was sent to a disciplinary high school and ended up getting straight A’s and graduated early. He takes the stage What You Won’t Do For Love by Bobby Caldwell. Kelly is listening and she tells Blake she wants him to go high. He does not get a chair turn. Adam thanks Allen and he finds himself married to that song and it’s not fair. Adam says he’s fantastic. Kelly says she loved his voice but she was waiting for the next level or a little more variety and she thinks he’s a great singer. Next, we have Jackie Verna from West Chester, PA. She’s a country pop artist. She had a car accident before she went off to a college and she was unable to go. She’s always loved music and it was the drive that kept her going while she was recovering. She struggled with self-image because of the damage caused by the accident. She steps up and sings Peter Pan by Kelsea Ballerini. Adam hits his button. Kelly is sitting still listening. Adam is excited and runs around and dances. He gives Jackie a hug and returns to his seat. Adam says she is the best country singer he’s heard. Alicia says it was so good and so beautiful. Adam has never been more excited about a 1-chair turn in his life. Kelly says she was freaking out and she only has one spot left. Team Adam is full! Our final artist of the blind auditions is Amber Sauer from Paradise, CA. She was from a very small country town in California and so she moved to Los Angeles when she could and booked her first gig within two weeks of moving. This is her first chance to step out as a solo artist and prove she is good enough. She takes the stage to perform Shape of You by Ed Sheeran. Kelly listens for quite awhile and hits her button towards the end of the performance. Kelly says she is so happy that no one could turn their chairs for Amber. Alicia says that was crazy. Kelly says she can pretty high, but that performance was pretty high. Kelly says she would have fought like hell for Amber. Blake wants to see the people who are cheering her on and they all come out. Team Kelly is full!
  15. Previously, on Big Brother Canada, with Andrew and his posse safe in heaven, a hellacious HOH competition left Johnny fired up by the win and the losers feeling the heat. When the campaigning began, Johnny turned on the waterworks. Then Johnny dried his crocodile tears and put up Alejandra and Rozina, but lone wolf Hamza howled at the idea. At the POV competition, every inch counted. In the end, Johnny wormed his way to the win, then locked down his nominations. On the first eviction night of the season, a unanimous vote sent Rozina packing. Then Big Brother dropped a second bombshell…with a catch. Tonight, will the gate crashers get their story straight or will it go up in flames? Who will make a splash as the next HOH? Can the have nots handle their tomb with a view? It’s all happening now on Big Brother Canada! We pick up after Rozina’s eviction and Alejandra says she is sad to see her go, but she’s so glad it wasn’t her. Jesse says the vote made the house look united, but it’s a totally different story. Jesse tells us Andrew was relentless on eviction day trying to flip the house to save Rozina and that rubbed people the wrong way. We see Andrew going to different groups and trying to sway them to evict Alejandra. We then see Arisa explaining the rules to the gate crashers and them entering the house. Olivia says what they heck? They just got rid of one person and now Big Brother is adding two more. Merron and Veronica are telling them they were in the audience and they were randomly selected to enter the house. They were made-up over a break before entering. Olivia is immediately skeptical. Veronica is explaining there was a super fan draw and they thought it was for front row, but it was a twist. Olivia says if they were in the audience then they seen the first eviction, but they said they don’t know who was evicted. There is speculation they are lying because their bios were out a week before the show was started and so the new people should know at least who was there. Jesse tells Derek he doesn’t believe their story and they are holding something back. He is going to try and get to Merron before Andrew does and bunk with him so he can keep an eye on him. Merron tells us he can’t believe he’s in the Big Brother Canada house, but he doesn’t think people are buying their story. Merron and Veronica are talking in the red rose room and Merron tells her their story was awful. Veronica says it will be horrible if they get called out. Merron says when they were asked if they seen everyone’s bios he knew it was a wrap. Erica comes into the red rose room so Merron leaves to put stuff in the WA and Andrew is in there and he tells Merron he’s got his back and he will not send any votes his way. Andrew says if he hears anything he’ll pass it to Merron and vice versa. Andrew tells him to play dumb and say less. Andrew tells us he’s at the bottom but he’s going to come through and make something happen. It’s time for the HOH competition! Welcome the BB Canada Cocktail Lounge! Earlier, Big Brother had us all fill out a survey based off our first impressions of each other. The results will be the basis of tonight’s HOH competition. This competition is called Right in the Kisser and here’s how it works: Johnny will ask a question and the first to buzz in will bring their martini glass to him. Johnny will pour them a drink and the HG will answer by throwing their drink right in the kisser of the HG they think is the answer. If correct, they will choose a HG to be “cutoff”, eliminating them from the competition. If incorrect, they will be “cutoff”. The last person remaining in the competition will be the new HOH. Merron and Veronica will not be playing and they are safe for the week. Question #1-Who did the house decide smells the worst? Andrew buzzes in and answers Ryan. The correct answer is Ryan and Andrew is correct and he chooses to cutoff Olivia. Question #2-Who did the house decide is only here for a showmance? Erica buzzed in first and she answers Derek. The correct answer is Derek and Erica eliminates Andrew. Question #3-Who did the house decide is most likely to cry when nominated? Maddy buzzes in and answers herself.

The correct answer is Paras and Jesse is eliminated. Question #5-Who did the house decide would have the least amount of people to attend their funeral? Paras buzzes in and answers herself. The correct answer is Olivia and Paras is eliminated. So far, 5 HG have been eliminated and they are Olivia, Andrew, Maddy, Jesse, and Paras. Remaining in the competition is Erica, Kaela, Derek, Ryan, Alejandra, William, and Hamza. Question #6-Who is the house most surprised to see cast this season? Kaela buzzes in, apologizes, and breaks her glass as she answers Hamza. The correct answer is Hamza. Kaela is correct and she chooses to eliminate Hamza. Question #7-Who did the house decide is the dumbest HG? No one wants to ring in but Derek buzzes in and answers William. The correct answer is Paras and Derek is eliminated.

Question #9-Who did the house decide would have the least people at their birthday party? Erica buzzes in and answers Ryan. The correct answer is Hamza. Erica is eliminated. Question #10-Who did the house decide would cause the most drama this season? Alejandra buzzes in and she answers Andrew. The correct answer is Erica and Alejandra has been eliminated. Ryan and William are the last two HG remaining and one of them will be the next HOH. It’s time for the final question. Who did the house decide was least deserving of the grand prize? William buzzes in and answers Hamza. The correct answer is…Olivia. William is eliminated and Ryan is the new HOH! Paras and Alejandra are talking and Paras tells Alejandra her feelings are a little hurt. Alejandra tells us Paras has been struggling a little with her confidence and she’s glad Paras is opening up. We see Paras go into the white rose room and she celebrates that people thinks she is dumb and easy to manipulate. Paras says it’s part of her strategy to play dumb. Hamza asks Ryan if he’s ready for the whole house to kiss his butt. Ryan says he’s ready and he’s going to play everything by ear. Hamza says next week will be a physical competition so he needs to plan for that. Erica comes in and wants to speak to Andrew after eliminating him from the HOH competition. Erica tells him everyone beforehand wanted Andrew out first. Andrew wants to know who said it and Erica said everyone, the entire house. Andrew says Erica jumped ship on him and she says it was just numbers. Erica says it doesn’t change how she feels about him as a person. Erica and Olivia are sitting on the couch downstairs talking about what a weird day it’s been and Andrew comes down. Olivia asks what’s up and Erica asks if he’s just going to follow her around the house now and Andrew says maybe. Things are tense and Olivia changes the subject and says the house is pretty messy. Andrew tells us he’s shooting daggers at her and she’s uncomfortable but she shouldn’t have done that to him. Andrew is bringing up she was the one of the first people he put in heaven the first week and saved and fed her. She asks how she’s supposed to stand beside him when he’s saying questionable things like trying to flip the house week one. She says those are things she can’t associate herself with. Andrew says we’ll figure it out, but don’t be surprised when the time comes. Everyone is hanging out in the living room and Alejandra is dancing and singing it feels good to be off the slop. Ryan comes out and says who wants to see my HOH room? He has a picture of his wife and son and he got a shirt his son made for him with his Ryan’s face on it. Ryan picks up a card and reads: HG, Canada will vote each week and choose a Hasbro game for you to play. The first game choice went to Big Brother and he chose Twister. Ryan sits down to watch his video. His son, Carter, comes and says Hey Dad! If you’re seeing this you won HOH! Congratulations! So far you are doing great and now he has something to tell him about himself. Their hockey team is doing very well. They have two tournaments left and he is going to practice very hard. I love you! Bye for now! Several HG have tears in their eyes and Ryan is emotional. He says he’s so proud every day to be Carter’s dad. Alejandra and Jesse are talking and she asks if he feels good with Ryan. Jesse doesn’t know who he’s targeting but he wonders if Ryan will go with Andrew. Alejandra thinks he does. Alejandra tells us Ryan winning HOH makes her nervous because she doesn’t know where his head is. Alejandra and Jesse are talking about how smart Ryan is. Alejandra thinks Ryan has been laying low and no one should underestimate him. It’s a new day and Andrew says he went to bed mad but he got up and put on his dad’s sweater and it’s time to go to work. It’s time for hug city. Andrew pulls Erica to the side first and apologizes. He says with the questions from the competition and then Erica taking him out it made him lash out and snap at her. They hug. Next, Andrew goes to Olivia. He didn’t mean to get mad at her, she was a victim of circumstance. But he messed up and it’s time to go to work. He apologizes to her and Olivia says it’s all good, apology accepted. And we have another hug. Andrew is giving out hugs today and hugs Maddy and William. Everyone is in the living room and Merron and Veronica are standing in front of everyone. Merron says HG, it’s time to name the first four have-nots of the season. Veronica reads: Ryan since you’re the HOH this week, it is your responsibility to decide who will be eating slop and sleeping in the most hellish have not room ever! Merron and Veronica will be haves for the week. Ryan stands and says he already decided if he had to choose it was only going to be heaven people because he didn’t want to put anyone on slop for back to back weeks. Ryan says Andrew saved him from slop last week so he can’t put him on it. The four HG he chooses are Jesse, Derek, Hamza, and Erica. That’s the decision for the week. Merron says have-nots, it’s time to enter Big Brother’s catacombs. They are all grossed out. Hamza says it’s his first time in the have-not room and he’s already shaking in his pants. There’s skulls everywhere, a tomb, nowhere to sleep, and funky water that smells bad. Erica climbs onto the tomb and says she can sleep on that. Ryan and Erica are talking in the HOH and Ryan is glad he gets time alone with her. Ryan gets to share a meal from Wendy’s so he wants to sit down with Erica and see what she’s all about. Erica says Ryan has knowledge she doesn’t and she finds that very valuable. Erica tells us she could potentially see herself working with him. Ryan chose Erica for two reasons, he made her a have not and they might be able to build connections to use down the line. Ryan orders Wendy’s through an order thing and their order is ready in the pantry. Ryan goes down to get it. There is a Wendy’s window with an employee handing out the food. Erica is annoyed she’s on slop this week, but she’s excited to have one last meal. She thanks Ryan. Kaela and Derek are laying down in bed in the red rose room and they are basically playing twenty questions to get to know each other. Kaela says they’ve been spending a lot of time together. They seem to be on the same page game wise and they are having a great time together. Derek says Kaela is super cute. Kaela says she is definitely a little smitten. Merron and Veronica are talking and Merron says people think they have like some weird power or something. Merron tells us he doesn’t think him or Veronica are in the clear but being safe gives them some time to figure things out. Veronica says they have to win HOH next week. Merron says whether he likes or not Veronica is with him because no one understands where he is like she does. Veronica says even though it puts them in a bad spot, they are the ones stirring the pot. Ryan is talking to Paras and asks if she thinks it’s red room vs white room. Ryan wants to put up who the house wants because that’s going to gain him trust. He needs to gather as much information as he can before nominations. Paras says Liv is very smart and she’s afraid of her because she plays a good game and she’s quiet and listens and she’s smarter than she lets on. Ryan says he’s concerned about her physically. Paras also tosses out Erica. Ryan says he thinks Liv is the most dangerous. Andrew is talking to Hamza about who Ryan is meeting with. Hamza says you realize he hasn’t talked to us at all. Andrew says he’s distancing himself from us, which is smart for his game, and the writing is on the wall. Hamza says Ryan will never get in with the others and they have the numbers, but someone like Ryan doesn’t want to go against the house. Hamza tells us no one wants to play the game and if he hears one more time they want to do what the house wants he’s going to lose his mind. Andrew is going to try and go eavesdrop on some conversations. Hamza tells us he knows Ryan is putting up Andrew this week and he doesn’t trust anyone in the house. If he doesn’t get put up next to Andrew, then he knows he’s being backdoored, and no one is going to backdoor him. He decides to nominate himself to guarantee he can play in the veto competition. He tells Ryan he wants to be put up. Ryan says asking to be nominated is asking to be evicted. Why anyone would willing do that is crazy to him. Hamza says he wants to go up because he wants to make sure he can play veto. Hamza tells us he knows it was a risky move, but he’s a smart guy and he doesn’t want to be backdoored. It's time for nominations. Ryan heads to the throne room. Ryan says this week is tough. Does he take a shot or play it safe? He has to play it right. He says no matter who you fire at early in the game, you have to deal with the repercussions of that. He says the house wants Andrew up but he has to decide what’s best for his game. He says the house doesn’t trust Hamza and the guy asked him to put him on the block. Ryan says Erica is in the mix for a nomination because she has a lot of friends in the house and he’s not certain where she stands. Ryan says as a marathon runner and a law school student, Olivia is a threat and could be dangerous. Ryan has locked in his nominations. Everyone gathers in the living room for nominations. Ryan has nominated Andrew and Hamza. Ryan nominated Andrew because of the events last week and it was a house consensus to put him up. Ryan nominated Hamza because he asked to be nominated. They both get to play in veto and good luck. Hamza says he’s playing the game with a bunch of sheep so he decided to nominate himself so he can play in veto. He says the only way they are going to get him out of the house is to backdoor him. Andrew says seeing his face burning in hell was not what he wanted to see. He’s going to work super hard for the POV and he’s ready for action. Hibernation is over and Canada is about to see the grizzly bear! Who will win the Power of Veto? Will Andrew or Hamza fight their way off the block? Find out Wednesday!

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Tonight, the final week of the blind auditions begins. Coach Kelly Clarkson, who has been a force to be reckoned with in her debut season needs 3 artists. Adam needs 6, and Alicia and Blake also each need 3 artists. And before the night is over, Kelly will use the final block. The biggest season of The Voice yet begins right now! Let’s meet the first artist of the night, Stephanie Skipper from Nashville, TN. She had a band with her husband and they started to tour, but her husband was offered a job in town. She thought they were going to do it together, but she’s going to pick it back up as a solo artist. Stephanie steps on stage and performs Piece by Piece by Kelly Clarkson. Kelly immediately gets emotional. All the coaches are looking at each other. Kelly seems like she wants to hit her button and Alicia tells her to just do it. Adam hits his button at the end and Blake says he’ll go too. Stephanie is a 2-chair turn. Kelly says she’s so sad and she’s mad she didn’t turn for Stephanie. Kelly says it was cool she picked that song. Adam says one of his favorite things about her is she brought his attention to the song. Blake says he thinks every song Kelly writes is extra personal, and that song has a little extra dose in it and he applauds her for coming out and laying out a passionate performance that connected to all of them, especially Kelly. Adam says he’s excited to work with Stephanie technically. Alicia asks who she picks as her coach. Stephanie says this is really hard, it’s a tough decision, but she picks…Adam. As Stephanie celebrates, let’s meet the next artist of the night. Tish Haynes Keys is next and she is from St. Louis, MO. Her father was a pastor, and her mother was a gospel singer. She has chosen the song Chain of Fools by Aretha Franklin. Kelly seems immediate impressed. Adam hits his button and Kelly hits right behind. Tish is a 2-chair turn. Kelly is excited, and on her feet and she wants to know what is wrong with Alicia and Blake because Tish just killed Aretha Franklin. Kelly goes up to give her a hug. Blake says he’s being strategic because his team is almost full. Kelly says her team is almost full and didn’t care. Kelly says if Tish were on her team she’d just let her fly and if she don’t win the show she can tour with Kelly anytime. Alicia says the only reason she didn’t turn is because she has other soulful voices on her team and she didn’t want to put her in the position where that would be a hindrance for her. Adam says he pushed his button because it would be disrespectful to the art of singing to not push it for her voice, which is the reason of the show. Adam says he’d love to have her on his team. Alicia asks who Tish picks as her coach. Tish says she’s watched Kelly since she started and she means so much to her musical career, but she wants to grow and be different and she picks…Adam. Our next artist is Branson Ireland from Fairview, TN. He works on weekends at an Apple store and he pursues music through the week. He appreciative of his wife for her support and allowing him to follow his dreams. He sings Tulsa Time by Don Williams. Kelly is singing along in her chair. Adam says he likes it and Kelly says he’s good. Blake hits his button and Adam follows. Branson is a 2-chair turn. Adam says Branson sang a song that clearly said he’s not going to be on Adam’s team, but if by some chance he has a bigger scheme and shock the world, then he’d go with Adam. Alicia says Adam is trying to say Adam recognized the power and brilliance in Branson’s voice before Blake. Kelly says Blake does work with artists after the show, but Branson also wouldn’t have much competition on Adam’s team. Blake says Kelly is right but if he picks Blake, then he’ll have to work harder and it will make him a better singer. Adam says he does not take this lightly. Alicia asks Branson who he picks as his coach. Carson tells Branson’s wife if he picks Adam that will be the craziest moment ever. Carson picks team Blake. Adam and Blake are both off to a strong start, while Alicia and Kelly continue to be selective with their final few spots. We see Teddy Chipouras sing Ophelia by The Lumineers and Kelly says she didn’t turn because she’s looking for something super specific. Then Arlo Montenegro performs Attention by Charlie Puth and Alicia says some of the lower notes were a little tricky. Next up is Daniel Garcia and he sings Perfect by Ed Sheeran and Kelly he was brave to come out and bare it all. Next we have Teana Boston from Stockton, CA. Her genre is R&B and Alicia Keys is one of her biggest motivations when she was younger. She takes the stage to perform Unfaithful by Rihanna. The coaches are all looking at each other. Kelly seems to want to hit her button and she finally does. Teana is a 1-chair turn. Kelly says it wasn’t until the very end when she was in her head voice and it was gorgeous. Alicia says it was super beautiful and that was a hard song to sing. Adam says Kelly did an amazing job of picking her because she’s going to be one of the ones to watch in the competition. Blake says they are all going to regret not hitting their button. Up next, we have Miya Bass from Jamaica Queens, NY. Both her parents work for the NYPD, her sister works as a police offer, and she also worked in law enforcement, but turned down being an officer because she wants to sing. She sings Issues by Julia Michaels. Adam hits his button. Miya is a 1-chair turn. Blake congratulates Miya. Adam says if she was a cop and pulled him over with that hair, he’d be like he wasn’t messing with that lady. Alicia says she didn’t turn because there’s a few things she’s looking for but she’s on team Adam. Adam says when he turned she got in her head a little and that’s a good thing because it may have deterred the others from turning. Livia Faith is next and she is from Stanton, KY. She has always wanted to sing. Her mother is her best friend. Her audition song is Dream a Little Dream of Me by Ella Fitzgerald. Alicia says it’s sweet. Kelly hits her button and Blake hits right after. Alicia seems to be enjoying the performance. Alicia finally hits her button at the end. Livia is a 3-chair turn. Kelly says she would love to have Livia on her team and she’s different from everybody else. Kelly would like to see her voice on a contemporary song but with a twist. Alicia asks if Livia plays any instruments and she answers she plays the ukulele. Alicia says she likes oldies and classics and twist them and she thinks together can come up with a few new songs and take over The Voice. Blake says he knew he was going to hit his button when she started singing. Blake thinks with the right coach they can take songs and twist them and make them different with the sound of her voice. Alicia says she thought of the song Earth Angel for Livia and she starts to sing it. Kelly sings along with Alicia. Adam sings Livia, who do you pick as your coach? Livia hesitates and says oh man…she has to pick…Alicia. The next artist is Jordan Kirkdorffer from Nashville, TN. He has an accounting job and he loves spread sheets. He’s from a small town in Indiana, a small farming community, and he liked singing to the pigs. He moved to Nashville after high school. He sings In Case You Don’t Know by Brett Young. The coaches are listening closely. Adam hits his button and Blake hits towards the end. Adam says just tell me, do I have a chance? Adam says Jordan’s performance was multi-faceted. His performance was beautiful and it touched him. Blake says he could hear that Jordan was different and special. Adam says he did hit his button before Blake. Kelly says Jordan will stand out on Adam’s team. Alicia says at the end of the day you get this incredible opportunity, Jordan who do you pick as your coach. Jordan thanks them both but he picks…Blake. Carson travelled to west Los Angeles to meet the next artist, Shana Halligan from Los Angeles, CA. Her dad was one of the founding members of Blood, Sweat, and Tears. She started a band when she was 30 and when it ended she was very depressed. She says she hopes the coaches like her voice because it’s unique. Shana steps up on stage and performs Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) by Nancy Sinatra. The coaches are listening very carefully. Alicia finally slaps her button. Shana is a 1-chair turn. Alicia felt there was something unique about Shana’s voice and she was very excited to experience that. Adam says she is so different and she’s so happy for her. Blake says she looks like a goddess. The next artist is Gary Edwards from Lewisville, TX. He’s a choir director with young children. His grandmother was very instrumental in his music when he was young. He’s an also an IT assistant and he sings with two cover bands. He’s going to sing What’s Going On by Marvin Gaye. Adam hits his button. Blake hits his button before the song ends. Adam thanks Gary for singing that song and it was like he was singing them to sleep. Adam wants to meet his grandmother. Blake says his voice is soft and flows and then sometimes it punches you in the face. Alicia says his voice is so superb. Kelly says he has a beautiful voice hands down. Adam says there’s something about him that transcends everything. Kelly asks Gary who he picks as his coach. Gary picks…Adam. The next artist is Mercedes Ferreira-Dias from Miami, FL. She was driven to singing since she was a child. She takes influence from Latin artists. She performs All I Ask by Adele. All the coaches are listening closely. Blake has his head tilted to the side. Kelly seems impressed. Kelly says she’s good. None of the coaches hit their button and Kelly immediately regrets not hitting her button. Adam says Kelly was closer than he was to hitting his button and he tells Mercedes to come back again. Kelly says she was so close and Blake says physically. Kelly says that might be the dumbest thing she’s ever done. She says she was looking for something specific and maybe that’s why she hesitated. The final artist of the night is Hannah Goebel from Omaha, NE but she now lives in Nashville. She had a learning disability in school but music helped her focus. Hannah is going to sing If I Ain’t Got You by Alicia Keys. Kelly immediately looks at Alicia. Kelly hits her button and blocks Alicia, and Adam hits his right behind. Blake hits his button. Alicia hits her button at the end and sees she’s blocked. The audience boos. Adam says Kelly crushed Hannah’s dreams today and Kelly says she had no chance unless she blocked Alicia. Kelly thinks she could be a really great coach for Hannah and since she used her only block on her she’d be the best choice for her. Blake says doesn’t it make you feel special that your dream was to work with Alicia Keys and she crushed your dream by blocking her. Blake says he loves Hannah, but he would love to be her coach. Adam says he covers that song all the time and if you get an artist to turn for you singing their song, that’s special. Kelly reminds her she used her only block. Alicia asks Hannah who she chooses as her coach. Hannah smiles and she picks…Kelly.
  17. Last night, 14 HG entered Big Brother Canada’s version of Heaven and Hell. Right away, they were rocked by the massive impact of the first bombshell. Tonight, not only will one person be evicted, but we’ll find out which two gate crashers got voted in. Previously, on Big Brother Canada, when 14 hopeful HG entered the house they thought they entered heaven. But when Big Brother charmed a chalice, all hell broke loose. With the power to put half the house in heaven and half in hell, Andrew gave seven lucky HG immunity for the week and then sent the rest straight to hell to face the fire of the first HOH competition. Alejandra was the first to burn out. One by one the rest saw their hope go up in flames except Johnny who held on for the win. Tonight, who will Johnny nominate for eviction? Will anyone worm their way off the block? Which two gate crashers will you vote into the house: angels or devils? It all happens now on Big Brother Canada. In just moments, one HG will begin their Big Brother afterlife. After that will be a huge reveal. We’ll find out which two gate crashers Canada voted into the house. Let’s see what happened after the HOH competition. We begin with seeing the end of the HOH competition and Johnny winning. Paras feels awful because Johnny wouldn’t take her deal. Hamza doesn’t care who Johnny nominates because he’s safe and he doesn’t care about anyone in hell. Johnny and Alejandra are talking about Andrew laughing during the HOH competition. Alejandra knows she’s an easy target since she fell first so she’s hoping to sway Johnny. Alejandra throws Paras’ name out as a potential nominee and also tells Johnny Rozina wanted a girl to win. We see the HG sleeping and Johnny is pacing and thinking who he’s going to nominate. Johnny says there is an angel and devil fighting in his mind. The angel is saying he’s really a nice guy and he doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. The devil is saying no, they are there to win $100,000. Day 2 dawns and all the HG are in the living room chatting and getting to know each other. Johnny comes out and it’s time to see the HOH room. He loves seeing his pictures. He then says he needs to nominate the two people who will get the least amount of blood on his hands. He wants to make people think he’s incapable of making this decision and he wants them to feel sorry for him. He’s using the sad puppy strategy to not make himself a target and people won’t see him as a threat. Johnny meets with Rozina and he tells her he will probably nominate her and she wants to know why. He says because the other girls told her Rozina wanted a girl to win. Rozina says the other girls were cheering for Paras as well and she tells him the other girls called him weak. Rozina pleads with Johnny to reconsider his decision and maybe target one of the other girls. It’s time to find out who’s in danger tonight. Johnny goes in to sit on the throne and lock in his nominations. He then goes to the living room to face the HG and reveal his nominations. His first nomination is Rozina and his second nominee is Alejandra. He nominated Rozina because he thinks she was cheering against him in the first HOH and he nominated Alejandra because she was the first to fall. He wishes them both the best in the veto competition. Alejandra says this week couldn’t be off to a worse start and Rozina can’t believe she’s nominated because she was cheering for a girl. Alejandra goes to lay down and she tells herself to stay focused. Paras comes in and says she doesn’t think she’s the target. Hamza says Johnny nominated Rozina, and wow what a great game move to nominate the oldest person in the house. He’s on Rozina’s side because she’ll be a vote for him, she’s a good cook, and she can’t do anything in competitions. Kaela is attracted to Derek and she likes Paras and Jesse. Kaela, Derek, Jesse, and Paras form an alliance. They think they will have the most influence in the whole house. They name their alliance the “Real Deal”. Paras says they should not tell anyone about their alliance because it puts them all in jeopardy. Kaela hopes the alliance is the ‘real deal’ because her and Paras could still be replacement nominees, but it’s nice to have two allies in heaven. It’s time for the veto competition! Kaela is in a butterfly costume and Derek says she’s the sexiest butterfly he’s ever seen. Competing in this competition will be Johnny, Alejandra, Rozina, Jesse, Olivia, and Hamza. They are all in inch word costumes. On go, they will slide down their leaf and grab an egg and then nudge it inch by inch to the other end. At the 5 inch mark they can no longer use their hands to push the egg where they’ll try and land it in one of the five holes. Each HG also has one golden egg and the first HG to land their golden egg will freeze the other HG for 30 seconds. The first HG to land all five eggs will win veto. Alejandra lands her first egg. Alejandra lands a second egg. Hamza has his first egg. Hamza scores a second egg. Rozina looks exhausted. Johnny lands his first egg. Hamza has his golden egg and is going to attempt to land it. Hamza misses the golden egg and Alejandra lands her third egg. Alejandra misses on her golden egg. Johnny gets his golden egg and he scores. Everyone else is frozen and only Johnny can play. Johnny scores an egg. Johnny has 4 eggs and is in first place and everyone can continue again. Hamza gets his third egg. Alejandra just misses her fourth egg and Johnny scores his fifth egg. Johnny has won the POV! We go straight into the veto ceremony where Johnny decides he will not use the power of veto. Hamza can’t believe they are going to vote out the oldest person and he talks to a few people to try and sway them to keep Rozina. Hamza says Alejandra could be a threat in future competitions. Hamza says he came to play and he’s going to try and dictate every single vote this season and if it backfires and ruins his game, then so be it. It’s time for the first eviction vote of season 6. Arisa gives Alejandra 30 seconds to plead their case. Alejandra apologizes for the dress and she appreciates all the HG and she’s not ready to go home and she’s here to compete. Rozina is next and she tells the HG she loves them and she wants them to keep her in the game because she’s a great cook and she’s weak. She’s not a strong player but she can be the vote they need to move themselves forward in the game. It’s time for the vote. Johnny will not be voting. The magic number for eviction is 6 and there is no talking or communicating in any way during the vote. Will-Rozina Erica-Rozina Ryan-Rozina Paras-Rozina Jesse-Rozina Hamza-Rozina Maddy-Rozina Derek-Rozina Kaela-Rozina Olivia-Rozina Andrew-Rozina By a unanimous vote, Rozina has been evicted from the Big Brother Canada house. Rozina joins Arisa on stage. Arisa tells Rozina she was trending across Canada and people have strong feelings about her. Arisa says Rozina, you made a compelling argument, why didn’t they listen? Rozina says it’s because they are youngsters. Arisa asks about her relationship with Hamza and Rozina says they were close and everyone is playing scared and if she were in there she’d make big moves. Coming up, we’ll find out which two gate crashers Canada voted into the house. Arisa says just moments ago Rozina was evicted, but if the 13 remaining HG think the night is over, they are mistaken. Arisa brings out the four gate crashers. Arisa asks before they enter what would they want people to know or not to know about them inside the house. Kirsten would not want people to know she’s a big fan of the game. Veronica doesn’t want anyone to know she’s a newbie and has only seen two seasons. Merron wants people to know he’s trustworthy. Mikey wants people to know he’s a fun guy and that’s it. Arisa has some news. She reveals they are a little late to the party and their new roomies have no idea they are coming. Only one man and one woman will be heading in. Arisa reveals the woman going in is…Veronica. The man who will be going in is…Merron. Arisa tells Veronica and Merron they may NOT tell their fellow HG they were voted in by Canada. They will enter through the diary room and they have to come up with their own believable story why they are there. The good news is they’ll both be safe for a week. Arisa sends them off to go in through the diary room where they start working on their story. What story will the gate crashers come up with? And how will the 13 HG react? The story they concocted is there was a draw for a superfan and instead they were selected to enter the house. Merron says Veronica can scope out the girl situation and he’ll scope out the guys. Arisa reminds them they can’t tell their HG Canada voted them in. Arisa says they can now officially enter the Big Brother Canada house. Those who were upstairs head downstairs to greet the new HG and introductions are being made. Join us Monday to find out who will be the next HOH.
  18. Enter the new realm of Big Brother, where he controls everything, both in the light and darkness. Witness the resurgence and step into a season of mythic proportions! When you’re on top, it’s magical. But in a flash, your wildest dreams can descend into nightmares forcing the question: Are you an angel or a devil? Destined to triumph or fail? Big Brother will make you confront the darkness inside of you, because if you want to be the last one standing the only way to survive is to fight. This season on Big Brother Canada, the battle between Heaven and Hell rages on, but once the dust settles the only one with ultimate power is you! We welcome our host, Arissa Cox. We are back and there’s just one thing Arisa wants to say, thank you to all the fans for making it happen. The fans saved us and for the next ten week, we plan on thanking you in a big, bad way! Unlike ever before, this is your season. Starting tonight, Big Brother is prepared to give the fans unprecedented new powers. Let’s take a look inside the house. Welcome to Heaven and Hell, Big Brother style! Even before the houseguests move in, the house has been divided like no other seasons. Upstairs it’s heavenly, but downstairs it’s pure hell. One house. Two completely opposite realities. The two worlds are built to be the angel and devil inside of each HG. Lucky HG will roam the angelic accomodations, and those few fortunate enough to gain power will have access to an HOH oasis. But down in the fires below, the unlucky have nots will endure the torment of Big Brother’s catacombs, and little do they know a ghost lurks within its crypt. In the house’s darkest corner lies the blinding power of the throne, a power so great that it will unleash the good and evil within each HG. But in this mythic clash, what the HG won’t know is that’s it’s Canada that holds the ultimate control in Big Brother Canada’s most epic season ever! It’s time to meet the HG. First we meet Erica who is 21 from Toronto, ON and she’s currently a server at a restaurant. Her motto in life is why not and she’s down with anything fun. Next we see Will who is 25 and from Trepassy, NL and he works on an oilfield tanker. He had a son when he was 19 and it’s forced him to grow up and he wants to stay focused for his son. The next HG we meet is Kaela who is 25 from St. Johns, NB and she’s a wine ambassador. She’s very competitive, she plays ice hockey, touch football, and rugby. We then meet Hamza who is 27 from Thunder Bay, ON and he’s a soccer coach. He’s loud, obnoxious, and he talks with his hands and he’s going to crush the competition. Finally, we meet Alejandra Martinez who is 30 and now lives in Vancouver, BC and she is a personal trainer. She’s a spicy Latina. We bring out the first five HG who will enter the house for season 6. Arisa greets them and tells them not to talk to each other until they are in the house. Arisa tells them they can now enter the house. Alejandra says it’s so pretty as she enters and the introductions begin. They say this is the coolest house yet. They head downstairs to look and then head back up to find the bedrooms. While the first five get settled into their divide new home, let’s meet the next five HG. We meet Rozina who is 49 is from Toronto, ON, and is a religious educator. She’s a story teller and if you have to lie, you have to lie. You want a Big Brother? Well you got yourself a Big brother, it’s Andrew who is 36 from Scarbrough, ON and he’s a not-for-profit founder. What you see is what you get with him, he just wants to be his authentic self. Next we meet Johnny who is 28 from Victoria, BC and he’s a house husband. He considers himself to be a stay-at-home dad, he just doesn’t have kids yet and he’s going to leave all his good qualities at the door, and take a key and unlock all the demons inside of him. Then we have Jesse who is 24 from Saskatoon, SK and he’s a sales executive. He deals with big egos with a lot of money and power and dealing with people in the house will be easy. Finally, we have Olivia who is 21 from Guelph, ON and she’s a beauty consultant who is high maintenance. Skin care is a must, her hair down and nails done and everything and she comes off controlling. Arisa brings out the five HG we just met and she sends them into the house. More introductions begin as the new 5 meet the first 5 in. Rozina seems to be extremely excited and is screaming. Arisa lets them get settled as we prepare to meet the final HG who will be entering tonight and get ready for the first HOH competition of the season. BB HG are competing for a $100,000 cash prize, a European dream vacation for two, and a $30,000 home furnishing makeover. The first 10 HG are already inside and it’s time to meet the rest. First, we meet Maddy who is 25 from Ottawa, ON and she’s a bartender. When people first meet her they think she is sweet, but she has a petty and manipulative side to her. Next is Derek who is 27 from Beaumont, AB and he has his own lifestyle brand. He is a small town boy, and he loves country music. He’s small town meets big city. Next is Ryan who is 39 from Calgary, AB and he is a fire safety technician. He intends to be BB super villain and he has an IQ of 153. Finally, we meet Paras who is 23 from Port Coquillam, BC and she’s a law student. She loves video games and she’s not going in there with the thought to meet a guy, her goal is to win. Arisa welcomes the last four to the stage and sends them on into the house. They enter and more introductions ensue. Coming up is the first bombshell of the season. One HG is about to send 7 other straight to Hell! Arisa is back and the one of the fourteen HG is about to be given an enormous amount of power. Before the HG went in, Big Brother placed several goblets on the table. One of them is different from the others. The person who chooses it randomly will be given a huge decision to make. Arisa tells them they need to toast and to go grab a goblet from the dining table. Andrew’s goblet is a little different and he needs to head to the diary room right now. Maddy is the one who handed him his goblet. Andrew is going into the diary room and he says this is crazy. Arisa tells him he’s about to make an enormous decision. She tells him he will be splitting the house in half. He’ll send seven HG to heaven where they’ll be safe for the week. The other seven will live in hell. That means they’ll be living on slop and without their personal belongings for the whole week. They’ll also be the only HG competing in the HOH comp and two of them will be nominated for eviction. In other words, the next HOH and the person who will be evicted will be in this group. Andrew puts himself in heaven first. He puts Rozina in hell because she talked too much. Andrew has placed a few people but seems to be reconsidering the placement. He thinks he needs to switch things around. The other HG’s are speculating that it’s nominations. Andrew finally has his decision ready and goes out to join the others. Arisa explains to the HG what Andrew has just done. Everything becomes serious and none of them look too happy. Andrew apologizes to them. It’s time to find out what Andrew decided. If the HG hears their name, then it is not good news. They’ll be in hell for the week. Johnny, Will, Alejandra, Paras, Kaela, Rozina, and Maddy are the seven selected to live in hell. They need to get ready for the first HOH competition of the season. It's time for the first HOH. The seven HG competing are standing on a ledge and it’s called Feel the Burn. The goal is to hold on as long as they can. The competition begins and the ledge tilts forward. They have rocks to hold onto and there is a fire behind them. Paras says she has a condition where she gets sweaty palms and now she has to hold on with fire behind her. Rozina is struggling and even though she’s older than everyone else she wants to prove she can do it and win. Alejandra is struggling and she is the first to fall. The wall tilts forward even more and Maddy struggles and she is the next to fall. The wall tilts forward more and Rozina and Kaela fall. Will tells Paras they are good and they are discussing who wants it. Johnny doesn’t want to make a deal because he doesn’t trust them. Will and Paras are both struggling and Paras tells us she just wants to Johnny to take the deal so they have to stay there forever. Will finally loses his grip and it’s down to Johnny and Paras. Paras wants to drop but every time she hears Rozina screaming at her. Paras finally drops and Johnny is the first HOH of the season. Next, we’ll meet the four gate crashers that need fan votes to enter the house. First we meet Kirsten and she says she’s an acquired taste and she loves BB and watches live feeds. She says she could be compared to Cassandra. On the other side we have Veronica, who may have tattoos and crazy colored hair, but she’s kind and genuine and that’s how she’ll be in the house. We meet Mikey and his strategy is to find flaws in people and exploit them and lying and manipulation. He says it’s already in the bank and he’s counting his money. On the other side we have Merron and he will be legendary, iconic, humble, and confidence. He’s aiming to make his family proud and he’s not looking for a showmance. So which gate crashers will be going in? It’s up to Canada! The 14 HG already inside have no idea about this new bombshell.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    As the coaches get settled, let’s meet our first artist of the night, Spensha Baker from San Antonio, TX. She signed with a major record label as a gospel singer at age 11 and toured for three years but the labeled decided to part ways. She is going to sing Blackbird by The Beatles. Blake and Kelly both hit their buttons at the same time. Adam says he loves the way Spensha took one of his favorite songs and did it her way. Alicia says she is incredible. Kelly says her favorite thing is to see an artist feel everything she’s singing. Kelly can’t wait to see more of her. Blake loves her slow vibrato and she would be the greatest gift to him on the anniversary of his 14th season as a coach. Kelly says they seem like they have similarities and Blake asks her what music she wants to pursue and Spensha says country. Alicia asks who she picks as her coach. Spensha says she can’t believe this is happening and she picks Blake. Up next, we have Alexa Cappelli from Upland, CA. She is in a music program at an Orange County School and she has a twin brother. Alexa sings I’ve Got the Music In Me by Kiki Dee Band. Kelly hits her button and Adam hits his a moment later. Adam says that wasn’t just really good, it was also really soulful. Adam says he loves Alexa. Alicia says she is sic and phenomenal and the only reason she didn’t turn is because she’s looking for something specific. Alexa tells Kelly to get into the Orange county school she auditioned with Kelly’s song People Like Us. Kelly wants to hear her sing it and she sings with her. It’s time for Alexa to choose her coach and she picks…Kelly. The next artist is Adrian Brannan from Ventura, CA. She’s a cowgirl and sings cowboy music. She’s also been classically trained in opera. She’d really love to work with Blake or Kelly. She sings Two More Bottles of Wine by Emmylou Harris. Kelly mouths to Blake she can’t hear the words she’s singing. She doesn’t get a chair turn. Blake says Adrian’s personality is incredible. Blake didn’t push his button because a little bit of a problem with diction. He advises her next time to enunciate the best she can. Adrian says this is a big honor just to be out here. Alicia loves her vibrato and she has a beautiful tone. Next we meet Wilkes from Waleska, GA. Wilkes was in a band after high school but he’s a stay-at-home dad now. He takes the stage and performs One Headlight by The Wallflowers. Adam tells Alicia if Wilkes sings the chorus good he’s going to turn. Blake leans forward to look at Adam and they both hit their buttons at the same time. Adam thinks Wilkes is a singular singer and he thinks he’s the coach for Wilkes. Kelly says she hears a little country music in him too. Blake says his voice was sneaky and the longer he sang the more he turned it up. He’s a fan. Alicia says who do you pick as your coach, Wilkes? Wilkes says…well..I’m sorry Adam but I’m going to pick Blake. After a big win over Adam, we hear Jesslee sing I’m With You by Avril Lavigne and Blake goes head to head against Kelly and Jesslee picked Blake as her coach. Then we hear Jordyn Simone who sang Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton and Alicia was inspired to turn her chair. Megan Lee was next and she sang Killing Me Softly With His Song by Roberta Flack and Alicia pushed her button for her too. Next we have Jaron Strom from Shelby, NC. He’s a web designer by day and a performer by night. He was introduced to Motown by his grandfather when he was growing up. He’d love to work with Adam, but all the coaches have a great ability. He’s singing This Magic Moment by Ben E. King. Blake hits his button as Jaron is finishing his song. Jaron is on Team Blake. Jaron does a happy dance and Adam says Jaron has to see Blake’s happy dance. Blake says he knew from the second he started singing he was into it. The longer he sang the more he knew he had to turn because Jaron didn’t deserve to go home. Our final artist of the night is Terrence Cunningham from Washington, DC. He’s been singing all his life but mostly he’s a piano player. He’s going to sing My Girl by The Temptations because it reminds him of his daughter. He plays the keyboard while he’s singing. Adam is the first to hit his button. Alicia follows behind and laughs when she sees the keyboard. Kelly and Blake both hit their buttons as well. Terrence is a 4-chair turn. Blake tells Terrence they are all speechless. They have never heard a performance like that on any level of The Voice. Alicia asks what made him sing that song and she says she felt it, it was so beautiful. Kelly wants to sing with him and she’s curious why he’s not already on the radio. Kelly says Terrence has the most amazing voice, but these shows are about strategy and she’s been through that process and wants to help him succeed. Alicia says it feels like a vacuum in this space and in this moment and there was a beautiful honesty and artistry to his performance. Blake thinks Terrence is special and he’s been doing it a long time and he’s never seen anything like that. Adam says Terrence doesn’t need them, they need him. Adam wants to coach him more than he’s ever wanted to coach another person on The Voice. Adam says it’s time for him to pick a coach. Terrence picks…Alicia.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Different backgrounds, different reasons, all with one goal…to be named The Voice. Tonight, the blind auditions continue. With talent this good, our coaches will have to raise the bar to build the team they want. Making it even harder, Adam and Kelly have yet to use the block. Prepare yourself America, tonight anything can happen! Let’s meet the first artist of night three. We meet Christiana Danielle from Fort Wayne, IN. She listens to gospel and her mother is a gospel rapper. She got into jazz in high school. She’s going to sing Hotline Bling by Drake, but a different version to show her versatility. Adam hits his button before she finishes the first line. Blake looks interested and so does Kelly. Kelly finally decides to hit her button. Alicia seems to enjoy her voice and finally hits her button. Christiana is a 3-chair turn. Kelly says she loves Christiana’s voice and she doesn’t want her to listen to Alicia. Adam says Christiana is a champ and she’s one of the greatest gifts they’ve been given on the show and he wants to be a guiding light for her on the show. Adam says she is one of the greatest singers he’s ever heard. Kelly says she has a chance at winning no matter who she picks. Alicia says she would be great from Adam or Kelly, but Christiana was crazy and she’s so excited. Kelly says she loves country. Alicia says she brought in Ella Fitzgerald with Drake. Alicia says she gets her. Blake says Christiana, it’s time to pick your coach. Christiana hesitates and looks at her parents and then picks…Alicia. Next we meet Brett Hunter from Pasadena, CA. He lives with his brother and they sleep in the same bed. He appreciates his brother’s sacrifice and he wants to be able to give back and make an impact in music. He performs She’s a Bad Mama Jama by Carl Carlton with a ukulele. Kelly seems to enjoy it and Adam is dancing in his seat. Blake finally hits his button towards the end of the performance. Brett will be on Team Blake. Blake says he has the next Tiny Tim and everyone else is a bunch of idiots. Blake says he’s never been more surprised because he didn’t expect to see someone up there playing a ukulele. Adam says if Brett had played and sang with just the ukulele, then they all would have turned. Blake says he couldn’t be happier for Brett to be on his team. Carson is on his way to meet the next artist, Jamai who delivers singing telegrams from Chester, PA. When he’s not doing singing telegrams he’s in the studio and he’s ready to take it to the next level. He takes the stage to sing U Got it Bad by Usher. Alicia is singing along in her chair. Kelly looks like she’s on the fence. Alicia and Kelly both look at each other and hit their buttons at the same time. Jamai says hi to Alicia and Adam notices how he said her name. Jamai says Kelly is a versatile singer and the epitome of success for artists who have won a singing show. Alicia says she turned around because she could tell he had variety and a style of his own. Kelly says she’d pick songs for him so he wouldn’t be compared to original artists. Alicia says she wants to make sure he’s a success, not only on the show but in the real world. Adam asks Jamai who he picks. Jamai sings it…Alicia. Next we meet Mitch Cardoza from Dartmouth, MA. He grew up in a musical household and both of his parents would sing to him. He got into reggae music in middle school. Mitch sings No Woman, No Cry by Bob Marley. The coaches are all nodding and swaying in their chairs. He did not get anyone to turn. Kelly says she loves the song and he sang so well. Alicia says he had some beautiful runs and she advises him to show more uniqueness. Adam says this song is so hard and so untouchable, but he is talented. Blake says there was a big not he hit and he should have incorporated that more into his performance. The next artist is Mia Boostrom from Boston, MA. She started singing in middle school and began writing her own music. She stopped doing music for awhile because people started not paying attention to her music and commenting on her weight. She decides this is her time to try again. She steps up to sing Pillowtalk by Zayn. Adam hits his button as she’s almost finished. Mia is on Team Adam. Adam says she is going to be the best one chair turn of the season, maybe ever. He knew from her last line he had the best kept secret of the moment. Alicia congratulates her on a great performance. Kelly says she’s looking for something super specific and her highs were beautiful, but her lows were sexy. Adam says there is a lot of great stuff to work with, she is so good. Jackie Foster is our next artist from San Diego, CA. She’s the lead singer of a band based out of Boston. Her mom has been watching since season one. She is going to sing What About Us? By P!nk. She gets through the first chorus and Kelly decides to hit her button. Blake reaches for his button and Alicia smacks hers. Jackie is a 2-chair turn. Kelly points out to Jackie that she turned first. Kelly says she’s been waiting for someone with depth and versatility and Jackie has that. Alicia says her voice had so much texture and was so genuine and her tone was accurate. Kelly says she thinks she would be a good coach for Jackie and she’s glad she will pick her. Alicia thinks there is a lot they can explore if she picks her. Adam says it’s time to pick your coach. Jackie hesitates and picks…Kelly. The next artist is Kayla Woodson from Waggaman, LA. She works at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. She finds it inspiring as a country music artist to work there. She’s going to perform Turn on the Radio by Reba McEntire. The coaches are listening intently. Adam looks like he wants to hit his button but he’s watching Blake. She does not get a chair turn. Blake says she has incredible range and what kept him from hitting his button was she was sharp sometimes. Alicia would love to hear a little more dynamic throughout the song. Adam says he’s guilty of watching Captain Country which is stupid because a great voice is a great voice. Adam tells her to come back again. Next, we have Reid Umstattd from Austin, TX. He’s a bartender, but he misses singing and performing. He was in a band after college and then he met his wife. Touring was hard on them so he quit the band. This will be the first solo performance he’s ever done. He sings Take Me to the Pilot by Elton John. Adam recognized the song immediately. Adam is the first to hit his button with Alicia right behind. Adam is dancing and singing along as he watches. Reid is a two chair turn. Kelly says she loved Reid’s vocal but it’s her first season and she’s looking for something specific. Adam says he’s glad that was the Elton song he chose. He has a killer voice, killer range, soul for days, and pocket, he loves him and he wants Reid on his team so badly. Alicia says she could play the piano that Elton played and Reid could sing. Alicia says his voice was powerful and so much fun. Alicia thinks they could do craziness and go all the way and have fun the whole time. Adam believes he can win the show and he’s his guy. Alicia wants to showcase that greatness and lift him up. Kelly says as a fellow Texan, who are you picking as your coach. Reid appreciates them both…but he picks Adam. The next artist is Jorge Eduardo from Guadalajara, Mexico. His dad is a mariachi singer. He grew up watching his dad perform and he always dreamed of doing what his dad did. He was on The Voice Mexico and got all four chairs to turn and got fourth place. Jorge sings Despacito by Luis Fonsi featuring Daddy Yankee. Kelly wastes no time hitting her button and then gets out of her seat to dance. Alicia is dancing in her seat. Alicia seems to enjoy the song and seems like she wants to hit her button. No one else turns. Jorge is on Team Kelly. Adam feels like Kelly picked him before he started singing and Alicia says Kelly scared her because she turned so fast. Kelly says she is so excited and she wants Jorge to teach her that song. Blake says it would be monumental if he could teach him to sing that song. As the night wore on we see Jamella who sang Dive by Ed Sheeran and Kelly and Blake both turned and Jamella chose Kelly as her coach. Then we see Angel Bonilla who sang Lay Me Down by Sam Smith and Adam was the only coach who turned. The next artist is Austin Giorgio from Rochester, NY. He loves Frank Sinatra and Tony Bennett and he was introduced to music through his father. Austin sings How Sweet (It Is To Be Loved By You) by James Taylor. Blake hits his button to turn. Kelly hits her button right at the end. Austin is a two-chair turn. Kelly loves the old standards and she won a singing competition and you have to have a little bit of strategy. She advises him to choose a contemporary song and make it that old style. Blake says he too has won a show like this and Kelly says not as a contestant. Blake says one of his favorite vocalists is Michael Buble and they’ll face time him. Adam tells Austin it’s time to pick his coach. Austin hesitates and he says he has to pick…Blake as his coach. The last artist of the night is Johnny Bliss from New York, NY. He’s a karaoke host and he hopes to be an artist who can sing in English and Spanish. He wants to make his family proud of him. He takes the stage to sing Preciosa by Marc Antony. Adam hits his button very quickly. Alicia and Kelly both turn right after and Adam has blocked Kelly. Blake turns next and he sees Kelly is blocked and starts laughing. Johnny thanks them for turning. He loves Adam’s shirt and Adam says he can have it if he picks him and Kelly says he’s the only one. Adam says he blocked Kelly and he thinks Johnny has not only the voice, but he also had a moment where he got lost and he wants to be part of his journey. Alicia says he sounds like he’s been singing lifetimes and he’s been put on this planet to do what he just did. Blake says he doesn’t know what he was singing but he’s pretty sure it was about drinking beer and eating fried chicken. That may not have been what he was singing about but it got him excited and that’s why he turned. Alicia says this is very important, Johnny, she thinks he should know she was named after her Puerto Rican godmother. She sings If I Ain’t Got You in Spanish. Johnny goes down to give Alicia a hug. Kelly says that was the sexiest thing. Adam says as amazing as that was and you’re picking a coach. Blake says it’s time to pick your coach. Johnny says all he hears, in Jesus’ name, he picks…Alicia.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    Last night, the greatest season of The Voice yet kicked off with the return of season 12 champion coach, Alicia Keyes, and the debut of new coach, Kelly Clarkson, who proved to be more than a match for our veteran coaches. And changing The Voice forever was the arrival of the block, giving each coach just one opportunity from getting an artist they want. Blake was the first to strike, followed by Alicia, who gave Blake a taste of his own medicine, leaving Adam and Kelly the only coaches still able to block. Let’s meet our first artist, Davison from Little Rock, AR. He’s a worship leader at his church and he’s also a local stylist. Musically, he gospel, with a little soul and grit. He’d love to work with Adam. His mom likes Blake. He’d also like to work with Alicia and Kelly is great. Davison steps and sings To Love Somebody by the Bee Gees. Blake and Adam hit their buttons at almost the same time. Kelly started to hit her button at the end and missed her opportunity. Adam says he’s going to kill Blake. Alicia says she’s out of her mind because he’s Davison is outrageous and he did a beautiful job. Blake says he loves that song and says it was an old Bee Gees record and Adam says no and Davison corrects Adam. Blake says he would be honored to be his coach. Adam says that’s shocking that Blake knew something about music he didn’t. He says Davison embodies what the whole point of the show is and his voice speaks to all of them. He says before he started recording he was listening to Lauryn Hill records and he knows who Davison is. Blake says Davison would be the centerpiece of Team Blake. Alicia asks who Davison picks as his coach. He takes a minute and says he loves them both, but he picks…Adam. Alicia and Kelly both talk about regretting turning around and Adam says that’s where he takes advantage. The next artist is Jaclyn Lovey from Placerville, CA. She is hoping to make her community proud because they have all been supportive and helpful for her as she follows her path. She is going to perform Can’t Help Falling In Love by Elvis Presley. Kelly looks at Alicia and says that’s pretty. All the judges are listening as she sings through the chorus. Blake finally hits his button and Alicia follows. Jaclyn is a 2-chair turn. Kelly tells Jaclyn no one on the show sounds like her. Alicia says sometimes we feel like we have to overperform and she just showed you can be simple and pure. Blake says her voice makes her feel every word. Blake says for the first time in his life he pictured himself riding a unicorn holding a care bear. Blake says they may have artists who can blow the roof off, but what she just did was more powerful than that. Alicia says to Jaclyn that she’s a huge lover of the classic songs and she sees what they can do together. She can keep the performances honest and genuine and keep it all about her. Adam says it’s time for Jaclyn to pick a coach. Jaclyn says she’d love to work with either one of them, but she picks…Alicia. Our next artist is Sophia Dion from Park City, UT. She sings What A Man by Linda Lyndell. The judges are listening and Kelly and Alicia start to sing along. She does not get a chair turn. Kelly says she didn’t even recognize the song at first but she was waiting for a little extra. Blake says if he can’t understand what people are saying when they are singing it drives him nuts. He says he could understand her most of the time, but it might need to be little cleaned up. As the auditions continued, both Blake and Kelly had something special in mind, and these singers just missed the mark. We see Brittney Spencer who sang Road Less Traveled by Lauren Alaina who Kelly says they could hear her nerves in the pitch. Next we see Karianne Jean who sang Blue Ain’t Your Color by Keith Urban who Blake says the song got away from her. He says she went for something big and it didn’t land correctly. Finally, we see Wildee Fusard who sang Legends by Kelsea Ballerini and Kelly doesn’t think that was the best song to showcase what she was capable of and Blake says if she could have put together a start to finish more solid audition, they’d be fighting over her. Let’s see if the next artist is the one Kelly has been waiting for. Molly Stevens is from Raleigh, NC, and she kind of puts herself in country, but she sees herself more in the Americana realm. Molly takes the stage with a guitar and sings Heavenly Day by Patty Griffin. Blake immediately hits his button and tells Kelly she is not blocking him. Kelly turns right after. Molly is a 2-chair turn. Kelly asks Blake if he knew who sang that song and he didn’t. Kelly knows that song. Kelly tells Molly you don’t have to have Blake as a coach to be successful in country. Blake says he doesn’t move from genre to genre, his life is country that’s all he does. Kelly says she loves all genres of music. Adam tells Molly that he thinks Kelly is a good fit for her. Alicia says her chances are higher with Kelly, but she likes Blake as well. Kelly says Molly is unique and she’d sound great in country music and be great on her team. Adam asks Molly who she’s going to pick. Molly says oh man…she picks Kelly. Blake says the other three coaches are ganging up on him and he has no one his team yet today and he’s starting to feel left out. The next artist is Dylan Hartigan from Wyckoff, NJ. He’s done some acting and been in a few commercials and had some experience in a boy band called NY5. He takes the stage and performs Danny’s Song by Anne Murray. The judges are listening and Kelly is saying it’s pretty. Kelly keeps acting like she wants to hit her button but hesitates. Kelly finally hits her button. Kelly tells Dylan he has a solid voice and she can’t wait to see what his range is and what he can do. He says he’s more folk rock and Kelly says yes, she loves it. Kelly says she doesn’t even have to fight for him. She doesn’t know if he wanted her but he got her. Our final artist of the night is Pryor Baird from Nashville, TN. He says you don’t choose the Blues, Blues chooses you and he says that’s right because you don’t play the Blues for the money. He’s a project manager for a home restoration company. He has chosen to sing I Don’t Need No Doctor by Humble Pie. Adam is the first to turn. Blake hits his button a minute later with Alicia right behind. Kelly hits her button as well, and we have a 4-chair. Kelly says she loves all of it, the soulfulness and the way Pryor rocked out and she’d love to have him on her team. Adam says he’s glad he turned first and the way he makes the guitar song is singular and unique and amazing. He doesn’t usually sing the way he does and play the way he does and he thinks Team Adam should be Pryor’s home. Blake says when he heard Pryor’s guitar playing he thought of Pete Anderson and that’s who made all of Dwight Yoakam’s records, a little loose and a little wild. Blake says he’s an incredible vocalist and he wants Pryor on his team. Alicia says she felt there was such a power and such a range and it felt so good and she’d love to help him explore that. She feels like she’s the only one who can sing in the range Pryor just did. Adam says he has to be Pryor’s coach and he sees him holding on to that guitar like it’s an extension of him and he understands that. Kelly asks who he picks as his coach. Pryor says this is tough…he picks Blake.

    The Voice (Season 14)

    America’s favorite, The Voice is back and better than ever. Kelly Clarkson joins The Voice as the newest coach. She’ll be joined by returning coaches, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, and Alicia Keyes. But this season, there is a big game changer. It’s called the block. Each coach can block one of their fellow coaches from getting an artist. But the coaches must choose wisely because they only get one chance to make it pay off. Prepare yourself America, the talent this season will have the coaches feeling more and going wilder than ever before. The most exciting season of The Voice starts right now! The coaches are settled in and Kelly is talking about how excited she is. Our first artist of the night is Britton Buchanan from Sanford, NC. He’s 17 and has been compared to a young Matt Damon. He is going to play guitar while he sings. He takes the stage and sings Trouble by Ray LaMontagne. Alicia hits first before he gets to the chorus with Blake right behind and Blake hits his block Adam button. Adam also hits behind them but hasn’t realized he’s been blocked yet. Kelly is still listening and swaying in her seat. Britton got a 3-chair turn. Alicia has noticed Adam has been blocked and points it out to Adam. Blake denies it was him but Adam says he’s out because Blake blocked him. Adam says they are afraid of him, but he thinks 100% Britton should go with Alicia. Alicia says his voice has so much honesty in it and she goes on emotion and she’d love to help him bring that out. Blake says he sounded like he was angry at the song and he heard a little gravel to his voice and a little bit of country. He says he did block Adam because he really wants Britton on his team. Adam tells Britton he knows how Adam feels, he wants to be on Alicia’s team. Who does he pick as his coach? Britton takes a moment and picks Alicia. Alicia says he was fantastic, there was something very pure about him. Our next artist is Brynn Cartelli from Longmeadow, MA. She heard Kelly Clarkson’s Breakaway when she was young and that’s when she knew she wanted to keep going with singing. She also plays field hockey. She sings Beneath Your Beautiful by Labrinth featuring Emeli Sande. Kelly hits her button first at the chorus. Blake moves like he’s going to hit his button but waits. He hits it at the very end. Kelly tells Brynn she is the first person she’s turned for. Kelly likes there are a lot of different elements to her voice. Kelly says Blake hit at the last second. Blake says it doesn’t matter where you start, it’s where you finish. Alicia says she has a beautiful voice. Blake asks her if she’s seen the show before and Brynn says yes. Blake says it’s Adam’s mission to derail him every time he hits his button for an artist. Blake says you know I have had more success with young females than any other artist and Kelly doesn’t have any experience on the show. Kelly says she had enough experience to mentor his team in season 2. Adam says it’s time to choose, who do you want as your coach? Brynn says she loves them both, but she has to pick…Kelly. Let’s meet the next artist. His name is Rayshun LaMarr and he’s from Fort Washington, MD. He was in a band and travelled with them. He was diagnosed with cancer, but now he’s cancer free. He is going to perform Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey. Adam immediately hits his button and Alicia hits a moment later. Blake is listening intently. Kelly is bobbing her head and mouthing the words. He’s a 2-chair turn. Adam and Alicia are on their feet. Alicia says Rayshun was singing with so much joy and Adam says seeing it was different. Adam says the sheer bliss he sings with is really infectious and he’s torn because he can see both him and Alicia in Rayshun. Alicia says she does too. Kelly says she’s so mad she didn’t turn around. Adam says as his coach, it’s important to have some who can match his energy and someone who can be critical because there were some things that could be better, and he likes to help people get better. Alicia says his story is very inspiring and he needs someone who will not let anything stop him and she’s dedicated to helping his story come to life. Alicia says she’s ready for her second consecutive win and Adam says technically not consecutive. Alicia gets up to give Rayshun a hug and then goes to stand next to Adam. Adam says he’s the guy who’s never going to stop to make sure Rayshun gets as far as he can get on the show. It’s time to choose. Rayshun hesitates and looks back to where his family is. He says he loves them both…he picks Adam. Our coaches are getting ready for the next artist, Kyla Jade and she lives in Nashville, TN. She has sung background for Carrie Underwood and Wynonna Judd and she’s also sung background for Jennifer Hudson. She’s going to sing See Saw by Aretha Franklin. The coaches are listening and Kelly is swaying and singing in her seat. The coaches all seem to be enjoying the singing but no one has turned. Blake finally hits his button and says she’s too good not to turn. Kelly hits hers a moment later. Alicia says Kyla was so spectacular and she’s so happy for her. Kelly says she loves that song and she loves her hair and her look. She thinks every part is sassy and confident and so good. Blake says he wants her on his team so bad. He asks what she’s doing in Nashville and she tells him she’s been singing with Jennifer Hudson. Blake says hopefully she says something good about him. Blake takes an oxygen tank and mask out and Adam staggers over while Kelly talks. Blake says the first time he won the show was with Alicia Keyes backup singer, Jermaine Paul. Adam asks who Kyla picks as her coach. Kyla says she is kindred with Kelly because they share Aretha Franklin, but the first person to give her an opportunity was Wynonna Judd so she has to go with Blake. Next, we have Blaise Raccuglia from Austin, TX. He loves the water and during the week he’s a pool technician but he knows there’s more for his life. He takes the stage with Wanted by Hunter Hayes. The coaches are listening closely but no one turns their chair. Kelly says she could feel Blaise’s nerves a little bit and it was pitchy in places. Blake says it wasn’t put together as tightly as it could be, but he was really close. Alicia thinks he did a great job and she’s excited for his future. Alicia says his nerves just got the better of him. The next artist is Kelsea Johnson from Newark, DE. Kelsea’s grandfather was in a mariachi band and she knows that he brought music to the family and it passed on to her. She sings Like I’m Gonna Lose You by John Legend by Meghan Trainor. Adam hits his button very quickly with Kelly right behind. Alicia finally hits her button as Kelsea is getting close to the end. Kelsea is a 3-chair turn. Adam says Kelsea is absolutely stunning from the way she sings to the way she looks. He says they can do this. Kelly says she could make a record now and release it and have a career. She’d like to help her find songs to perform to get air time to reach as many people as possible. Alicia says she has won the show and she’s ready to win it again. Alicia says she has a gift and there’s a reason she was given that gift. She’s been in the studio with Chris Blue and she’s dedicated to what happens. Blake says it’s time to pick her coach. Kelsea thanks them for their kind words. She then picks Alicia. Carson is on his way to meet their next artist, Drew Cole from Los Angeles, CA. He’s a bartender and he’s had a viral video and that’s why he went to California from Connecticut. He plays in bars and small venues and this is a big opportunity for him. Drew takes the stage saying he’d love to work with Adam Levine, but Blake could give him a different perspective. He performs Sex and Candy by Marcy’s Playground. Adam hits his button after the first line of the song. Blake hits his button near the middle of the song. Kelly is again singing along but she hasn’t turned. Drew was a 2-chair turn. Adam says he doesn’t know if Drew knows he did a cover of that song that was similar to that and Drew says yes. Adam says he’s hoping that cover has something to do with why Drew performed it. Blake says he’s won the show with all kinds of different artists because he tries to take the focus off of him. He sees a cowboy hat on Drew’s head and he would love to be his coach. Adam says he sang the lights out without even trying and he doesn’t just see him as the winner, but far beyond the competition. Alicia says it’s time to pick his coach. Drew takes a moment to think…he picks…Adam. The next artist is ready to take the stage. His name is D.R. King and he sings Believe by Imagine Dragons. All the coaches are listening. Kelly finally hits her button. Blake hits his a minute later. D.R. is a 2-chair turn. Kelly loves that D.R. brought his soul to that song and his runs were sick. He was a school teacher and Kelly gives him an ovation. Kelly thinks they can do something fantastic together. Alicia says she’s glad that Kelly and Blake turned around. Adam says it’s hard to fill a room with a voice like that. Blake says his voice is explosive and any song he sings is going to sound like D.R. King. Blake says he’ll be beside himself if he picks him as his coach. Adam asks D.R. who he picks as his coach. D.R. looks to where his family is and thinks about it…and picks Kelly. Time to meet the next artist, Kaleb Lee from Ormond Beach, FL. He’s there to show his kids to pursue their dreams. He had given up music to care for his family. He has two biological daughters with his wife and they adopted a son. Kaleb heads up the stage with his guitar and sings Never Wanted Nothing More by Chris Stapleton. Blake immediately looks down at the other coaches. Everyone is looking back at Blake and then Kelly hits her button. Blake hits his a minute later. Kaleb is a 2-chair turn. Kelly says she knows enough about country music to hit her button. Blake says his voice and style reminds him of Texas red dirt kind of music. Kelly says that’s weird, because I’m Texan. Blake says his voice would stand out on country radio. He asks if he ever made the trip to Nashville and Kaleb says he did but he set it aside to take care of his family. Kaleb asks if he can bring his kids up and they say yes. Kelly says his family is so beautiful. Kelly says Kaleb should shock everyone and pick her as his coach. She sings to him don’t you want to stay here a little while? Blake says his wife is right there. Kelly says it was good enough for Jason Aldean. Adam says it’s time to pick your coach. Kaleb says his kids watch the show and they are huge fans of Blake…so he picks Blake. Next, we have Makenzie Thomas from Wallingord, KY. She says believe it or not she grew up listening to R&B. She’s going to sing Redbone by Childish Gambino because it will allow her to be creative. The coaches are dancing in their seats. Blake is listening intently. Adam says so close and Alicia agrees. Adam says there is so much magic in Makenzie’s voice. Kelly says she’s so unexpected, which if fabulous. Alicia says she was not what she expected to turn around to but stay on the path because she’s so close. The next artist is Justin Kilgore from Buffalo, TX. He joined the cheerleading team in high school in a very conservative town. He started getting interested in country music while he was in college and he moved to Austin, TX. The Voice is the first opportunity for him to be himself. He performs by Tomorrow by Chris Young. All the coaches look at each other and Blake makes to hit his button. Alicia and Kelly both hit and turn at the same time and Alicia has blocked Blake. Blake shakes his head. Adam hits his button at the very end. Kelly and Adam go tease Blake about being blocked. Adam lays down on the Blocked light and he’s making a snow angel. Alicia says she used her only block on him because she knew he was that special. Blake tells Adam to get away from him. Kelly asks how Justin got into country and he says he was a fan of Reba McEntire. Kelly says that’s weird because Reba is her mother-in-law. Alicia would love to help bring the best out of him. Adam says he’s so good he won’t even be mad if he doesn’t go with him because he can’t go with Blake. He tells Justin to do whatever he wants to do, he is amazing. Kelly says she knows country music and Blake says she doesn’t know anything about country. Adam says the sheer amount of words that come out of her mouth and she says he does the same thing. Adam says, Justin, who do you pick as your coach? Justin hesitates and he picks…Kelly. Alicia says she was waiting to use her block on Blake. Kelly feels like Justin has a lot of potential. Blake says he hates them all.

    The Amazing Race (Season 30)

    This season on The Amazing Race, our most competitive season began with a photo finish. For the first time ever, teams went head to head and swapped partners. Teams made strategic moves and game changing mistakes. Along the way, seven teams were eliminated, leaving team IndyCar, team Extreme, team Big Brother, and team Yale with a shot at the one million-dollar prize. Tonight, one of these four teams will win The Amazing Race. Alex and Connor are the first to depart and they are flying to Hong Kong. Once to Hong Kong they must find Victoria Peak and a photographer’s kiosk to find their next clue. Alex and Connor and Cody and Jessica share a ride to the airport. They don’t mind they are arriving in Hong Kong at the same time, but they know Henry and Evan have a speed bump and that’s who they want out. They arrive at the airport with Kristi and Jen. Kristi and Jen say if they had predicted the strongest teams at the beginning it would have been the four remaining. Henry and Evan are grateful to be in the race still, but it’s worrisome they have a speedbump. Cody says he’s not counting Henry and Evan out but they are working with Alex and Connor to get out Henry and Evan. All teams have now arrived in Hong Kong and they are racing for Taxis. Alex and Connor are the first out of the airport. Kristi and Jen are behind them. Cody and Jessica and Henry and Evan fought over a taxi and they are out. Kristi and Jen hope a night leg will do wonderful things for them. Henry speaks Mandarin and he thinks that could be an advantage for them. Alex and Connor are looking for the kiosk. Kristi and Jen are lost and their driver needs to turn around. Jessica and Cody have arrived and are also looking for the kiosk. Kristi and Jen decide to walk because it’s only 8 minutes away. Alex and Connor see Henry and Evan’s speed bump and they find the kiosk. The photographer takes their picture and he goes to print it and they are waiting for their clue. Henry and Evan have arrived at their speed bump. They must illuminate 40 Chinese lanterns representing happiness and good wishes, something they’ll need if they want to survive this leg of the race. Cody and Jessica have arrived at the kiosk and they inform Alex and Connor Henry and Evan are at the speed bump. Alex and Connor are impatient waiting and they have to travel by taxi to their next clue. Jessica and Cody get their picture taken and Kristi and Jen have arrived. Henry and Evan are still working on their lanterns and their taxi driver came to cheer them on while they are doing their task. Jessica and Cody are right behind Alex and Connor and they are staying right on their tail. They are searching for the next clue box with Kristin and Jen right behind and it’s Kristi and Jen who find the clue box first. Detour: Hairy Crab-Teams must work like local fisherman and properly secure a basket of hairy crabs for transport to the fish market. Wrangling these uncooperative crustaceans will be a challenge. And just to ramp things up, teams will have to prepare 50 crabs in a typhoon! Grub Grab-One team member will take an order in Cantonese and then relay the order to their teammate in the kitchen who must decipher the correct dish. When the customers get what they want, teams will get what they want…their next clue. Alex and Connor and Kristi and Jen have chosen Hairy Crab and they have to take water transport to their detour. Henry and Evan have finished their speed bump and they get their picture taken. Jessica and Cody have also chosen Hairy Crab. Jessica doesn’t like crabs, she doesn’t like seafood and Cody says they are going to get slimy. Alex is struggling with the crabs and he’s not good at knots. Connor is also getting aggravated and they decide to switch. Kristi and Jen have gotten started and Cody and Jessica have arrived as well. Connor and Alex go back to get on the water transport and decide to go to the restaurant because they are sick of this. Henry and Evan have found their next clue and they think the other three teams have decided to freeze them out. They are going to do Grub Grab. Cody says the rope was slippery and the crabs were fighting while they were getting tied up. Kristi and Jen note that it’s a lot of crabs. Henry and Evan see Alex and Connor as they are headed to the restaurant. Alex and Connor say Henry has a big advantage because he speaks Mandarin. Henry is taking the first order and Connor is working on his. Connor says it was a very difficult detour. They had to take orders in a language Connor will probably not understand. Connor says it’s impossible. Alex says they have to do this because they can’t switch. Connor asks Henry if he’s writing in English and Henry says he’s doing it phonetically. Henry says they speak so fast. Kristi and Jen are working on their knots. Cody and Jessica have about 15 done so far and she thinks they should have switched detours. She says this challenge sucks and she hates it. She thinks the restaurant one would have been the better choice. Connor is working on his order again and he goes back to translate to Alex and he struggles with the first one. Henry is delivering some of his food. They have to serve 8 plates and he takes back the plates he served. Connor says he’s going to deliver four at a time and he serves 4 of 8 and he’s laughing because he has no idea if he’s right. Kristi and Jen have 36 and Cody and Jessica have 31 done of their crabs. Connor on his first attempt has 3 wrong. Henry has all of his correct and him and Evan get their clue and head out. They wish Alex and Connor luck. They have to take a taxi and search for their next clue. Connor has all of his correct on their second attempt and they are done. Kristi and Jen are getting their crabs checked, but they had several done improperly and had to redo almost half their basket. Cody and Jessica are getting theirs checked and some of the claws were out so they had to fix them. They are done with all 50 and they get their next clue. Henry and Evan have arrived at the next clue box and it’s time for a road block. Phil tells us people in Hong Kong like to blow off steam, and its rage art. Who Wants to Get Smashed? They have to break use a bat to break old electronics to find two halves of a clue. And just because they can, they will splatter what they’ve destroyed with a gallon of paint to create their own masterpiece. Henry is going to do it for their team. Evan is handcuffed to a briefcase. Evan is cheering Henry on. Kristi and Jen are at 48 and Jen has gotten her first bite. They think they are done and they get their next clue. Connor is going to do it for his team and Alex says he’s jealous. Connor broke his bat. Henry found one half of a clue. The other half is behind Henry but he hasn’t seen it yet. Connor can’t find his yet either. Henry finally finds the other half and he throws the paint on it. Teams have their next clue handcuffed to their wrists. To unlock it, they need to search Lan Kwai Fong for signs representing specific leg numbers. The leg numbers are the code to unlock the brief case. And to make it more difficult, the brief cases all have different combinations. Cody is going to smash for their team. Kristi and Jen have arrived and Kristi is going to smash. Alex and Connor have already left. Kristi is struggling because she is in pain. She’s frustrated and doesn’t know if she can do it and she takes her mask off. Jen and Kristi note they have to stay ahead of one team and it happens to be Big Brother. Jen is concerned. Jessica says this is her worst nightmare to be competing against Kristi and Jen. Henry and Evan are in the taxi and they are going over their legs and cities and their driver says they have arrived. Evan says the area is chaotic because of everyone is partying and drinking and they didn’t know exactly what they were looking for. Alex and Connor are in their taxi and they say Cody will get through that quickly. Cody is finishing and has his clue and they head out. Kristi is still struggling. Alex and Connor have arrived and they are looking around too. Evan and Henry are struggling to figure out their code. Alex and Connor feel like the signs will be obvious. Henry and Evan have found 3 and Alex and Connor have found 5. Alex and Connor have also found 3. Krist is still smashing stuff and Jen is mumbling please read the clue. Kristi thought he had to get something checked. She finally goes back and reads her clue and she found the first half. She’s looking through the stuff she smashed for the second half. She finally finds it and they head out. Henry and Evan have found their second number. Alex and Connor wonder if they should work with Henry and Evan. They both have 5 and 3, but they can’t find the last number. They see signs but they’re unsure of which signs they should use. Henry and Evan are trying 3-2-5. (The correct combination will be a combination of 1, 3, and 5). Jessica and Cody have arrived. Henry and Evan see them and they realize their lead is gone. Alex says they have 5, 4, 3, and 6 and it’s just random. Cody is trying to figure out what the signs look like and Alex and Connor show them the bull. Henry and Evan see the Arc de Triomphe from Washington Square Park where they started the race and it’s the last number they need for their combination. Jessica sees Henry and Evan and Alex says they were trying to come up with combinations. Henry and Evan have their clue. Their pit stop is on the corner of Johnston and Wan Chai Road for this leg of the race. The first three teams to check-in will be racing for one million dollars in the last leg and the last team will be eliminated. Henry tells Alex and Connor tell them to go the other way and Evan yells at Henry. Alex sees the sign and thinks it’s France. Cody tells Jessica they seem to know something. Evan tells Henry in the taxi she likes IndyCar but it’s too tight to help them. Kristi and Jen have arrived and they see Big Brother and they feel more comfortable. Jessica and Cody say they can’t find another sign to save their lives. Kristi and Jen found 2 numbers and they say they are close with Big Brother but it’s an us or them situation. Cody has found the sign Henry and Evan needed and it has given them their second number. They start guessing by process of elimination. Kristi and Jen are trying combinations too. Cody and Jessica have their case open and they have their clue. Kristi and Jen see Alex and Connor and they are still struggling to find their last number. Jessica says Kristi looked so upset and she’d never seen her like that. They know Henry and Evan have left. Alex says they haven’t seen Jessica and Cody in awhile. Kristi and Jen see the sign with the Arc de Triomphe, but they also think it’s France. Henry and Evan are hoping they will hit the mat first and Jessica and Cody are looking for the pit stop. Henry and Evan have found Phil but they almost get hit by a train and have to wait for it to pass. Henry and Evan are team number one and they have made Amazing Race history. Only two other teams have ever completed a speed bump and won the leg and they are one of the three teams who will be racing to the finish line. Phil tells them they are going to San Francisco and they will be pampered all the way home because the next leg will be tough. Phil asks Henry and Evan if they felt they were isolated. Evan says maybe but they tried not to focus on it. Jessica and Cody have arrived at the mat and they are team number two. Phil notes they don’t look happy and Jessica says losing friends gets harder. Cody says they wanted the other two teams with them. Kristi and Jen are bickering and they are back to trying numbers. Alex and Connor are by the sign with the Arc de Triomphe and they talk about the other teams being there when they opened their case. Connor says they’ve found the sign but either they are doing something wrong or the answer is right in front of them. Alex thinks the bull is the wrong sign. Kristi and Jen have their case open and they are off. Kristi and Jen hit the mat and Jen gives Kristi a hug before anything is said. Phil says this leg was their toughest leg, but there’s good news. They are team number three and they are one of the final three teams who will be racing to the finish line. Phil says there is one thing about them, they don’t give up. Phil asks if there is anyone on the race they can’t beat and they say no. Phil comes out and meets Alex and Connor while they are still looking for their numbers. Alex says this isn’t good. Phil tells them the other teams have checked-in and they have been eliminated. Phil tells them they should hold their head high because very few teams make it through 11 legs of the race. All teams are on their way to San Francisco where they’ll race to the finish line. Their first stop is AT&T Park where they must find the Say Hey Kid statue commemorating the legendary Willie Mays. Henry and Evan and Cody and Jessica are at the airport wondering who is racing with them and they see Kristi and Jen come around the corner. Henry and Evan check their bags so they won’t have extra weight. Cody just wants to win and Jessica wants the money. Kristi and Jen have beaten all the other teams before and they know they can do it again. The plane has landed in San Francisco and all teams are out for a taxi. Cody says it smells like America, this is his place. He’s not a world traveler. Kristi and Jen are comfortable going up against these three teams in challenges. Cody and Jessica are the first to get to the clue box. Teams must now search among hundreds of baseballs and find the numbers that represent the number of career home runs Willie Mays hit, which is 660. They are searching McCovey Cove which is where home run baseballs are often hit. Kristi and Jen ask someone to look up the information and they come up with 661. Cody twisted his ankle and they are looking for kayak’s. Cody says he twisted it bad. Henry and Evan have arrived at the kayaks. All teams are out in kayaks looking for balls. Lou Seal, the mascot is throwing balls into the water. Cody realizes they don’t know the correct number. Kristi and Jen have the correct number, 660 they are looking for and they have found the first number. Henry and Evan crash into Jessica and Cody. Henry and Evan have found a couple of 6’s with other numbers. Kristi and Jen have a 0 now. Henry tries 936 first and they are wrong. They try a few different combinations and they are wrong and they are trying to figure out what they need to do. Cody and Jessica try a few combinations and they aren’t correct. Jessica and Cody ask someone standing next to the water and Evan overhears the answer. Henry and Evan just need a 0, Kristi and Jen need another 6, and Cody and Jessica need them all. Jessica gets her 6 and 0 quickly. Kristi and Jen have their numbers and they take them for the ump to approve and they get their clue. Cody and Jessica also have theirs and they get their clue. Henry and Evan are bickering and still need their last number. Road block: Who has an extra pair of underwear? In the center of the Golden Gate Bridge is an anchorage and it has more concrete than the Empire State building and is larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza. It will serve as the highest ascender climb in the history of the Amazing Race. Once they get to the top they must go inside and face the world’s most terrifying free fall. Once complete, they can reunite with their partner and continue on. Kristi is going to do it for their team and Cody for theirs. Henry and Evan have their numbers and they catch up and Evan is going to do the road block for their team. Cody says this is the perfect challenge for him. Cody has a lead with Kristi not far behind. Evan is the furthest behind. Kristi has almost caught up to Cody. Cody’s arms are burning. Cody has reached the top and Kristi is right behind. Cody says Kristi is right behind him and he’s not sure who Yale picked, but they are way behind. They have put Cody into a glowing green suit and they tell him to take small steps off the edge. He goes out and he walks slowly off and Jessica is wondering what is happening. Cody has landed and Kristi is next. Cody and Jessica are off to what they guess is the Golden Gate Cheese Factory. Evan is still struggling on the climb. Kristi hates tall buildings but she walks right off and she lands safely and they are off. Evan has reached the top and she thinks they are about 15 minutes behind Cody. Jessica says she can’t tell if it’s cheese or bread, but they know it’s some kind of factory. Jen suggests maybe some kind of pancake. Cody and Jessica are off their boat and Kristi and Jen are right behind. Jessica stops to ask for assistance on where they are going. The stranger tells them it’s the Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. If teams can make 102 perfect cookies, their fortune will be their next clue. Evan is doing her free fall with Henry encouraging her. She lands safely and they head out. Cody and Jessica and Kristi and Jen have arrived at the cookie factor and they cookie master is showing them how to make the fortune cookies. Each teammate has to make a full tray of the cookies. Henry and Evan grab a taxi and ask if he knows what the clue might be leading them to. Cody and Jessica ask for a check on his tray and he needs 14 more cookies. Kristi gets a check and she needs a few more and she’s done. Henry and Evan have arrived and Cody doesn’t know how they caught up to them. Cody has his tray done. Jen asks for a check and they are done and they get a fortune cookie with their clue. They will find their next clue at the USS Hornet. Jessica says this is frustrating. She says they were the first team to arrive but things change quickly. Evan asks for a check of Henry’s tray and he is done. Jessica asks Cody what she’s doing wrong. Henry and Evan seem to be doing pretty well. Jessica has finished her tray and they head out to find a cab. Henry and Evan are done also and they head out to look for a cab too. Henry and Evan have found a cab and Cody and Jessica are struggling to find one. Henry and Evan drive by and Cody sees them and realizes they are in last. Evan hopes to put a little distance between them. Jessica is frustrated and says this is ridiculous. Cody and Jessica have now found a cab and they are in third place. Kristi and Jen arrive first and they open their clue. The USS Hornet will serve as the finish line as for this season of the Amazing Race. But first, teams will have to build an airplane at the other end of the runway. First they’ll have to search the hornet for 12 pieces of a plane which are spread out among more than 1000 compartments over seven decks at length of more than 900 feet. Then assemble it so all 12 legs of the race are represented by symbols and it will be this season’s most difficult test of physical endurance as well as mental strength. The first team to complete building their plane and land on the mat will win one million dollars and the Amazing Race. Kristi and Jen selected the red plane because they think it will be easy to see and they begin searching for their pieces. They have found their first piece and when taking it back they find their second. Henry and Evan have arrived and Cody and Jessica have arrived right behind them. Henry and Evan have selected the blue plane leaving Cody and Jessica with the yellow plane. Kristi and Jen have 4 of their 12 pieces. Henry and Evan have found their first piece and they decide to take it back. Cody says this is massive and you could get lost because it’s like a maze. Jessica and Cody have 2 of their parts. They find a third and Kristi and Jen have 6. Henry and Evan have 4 pieces. Kristi and Jen are up to 7. Cody and Jessica have 6 pieces. Henry has noticed that some pieces have two stickers on them, one on each side. Kristi and Jen are trying to be as thorough as possible. Jessica says they did not make this easy, it’s almost like there’s a million dollars on the line or something. Kristi and Jen have now found all of their pieces. Jessica and Cody have found their final piece and Jen has to assemble the plane because Kristi did the last road block. Jessica has to do it by herself and when Henry and Evan get their pieces, Henry will have to do it for their team. Jen notices they have 12 pieces of their plane but they only need 6 of them and you have to find the right combination in order to have a symbol for each leg represented on the plane. Cody says they are neck and neck with Kristi and Jen. Henry and Evan have their pieces and they are heading back. Jen is trying to figure out the parts and the symbols. Jessica is working on hers and figuring out symbols also. Jessica says the pictures were difficult. Henry and Evan are still struggling to get all their pieces back. Jen asks for a check and she is not cleared for takeoff. Henry and Evan finally have their pieces back and Henry is now working on his plane. Jessica is asking for a check. She is not cleared for takeoff. Henry is rushing to hurry up. Jen and Jessica are going over the symbols in their head and what country they represent. Evan is cheering Henry on and Jessica says she’s so annoying. Henry is also unsure about some of the stickers. Jessica wishes Evan would stop talking and Cody starts encouraging Jessica. Henry is asking for his first check. He is not cleared for takeoff. Jen has failed a second time. Henry asks for a second check and he’s not correct. Jessica has a third check and she’s not cleared either. Jessica has also missed check 5 and Jen missed check 4. Jen is getting frustrated and Evan is still encouraging Henry and Jessica wishes someone would tell her to shut up. Henry tells her he’s got it and asks Evan to be quiet for a second. Jen miss check 5 and Henry misses his as well. All teams are still working on their plane. Jen asks for check #6 and it’s not cleared. Jen has 4 incorrect of the 12. Henry has his correct but hasn’t asked for a check and he changes something making two incorrect. Jen has moved a few things around. Jessica ask for check #9 and she is not cleared for takeoff. Jessica has 2 incorrect. Jessica makes a change and asks for check #10. Jen is making a check. Jessica is cleared for takeoff. Jessica has to push the plane to Cody and they run off. They run up to Phil and asks did they do it? Phil says Cody and Jessica they have won the Amazing Race and they have won one million dollars. Phil says Cody looks kind of stunned right now and he’s speechless. Phil says his teammate came through for him in the end and he says she’s the foundation of his strength. Henry and Evan have finally completed and they come in and they congratulate Cody and Jessica. Jen is so disappointed in herself and Kristi hugs her and comforts her and they jog to the mat. Phil asks how they feel right now and Jen says she feels horrible and she feels like she let Kristi down. Kristi and Jen never finished below third and they will eventually be able to look back and be really proud.
