The Little Big Brother Finale is Tonight!
Don't forget, there's one more BBCAN8 show, it's tonight at 7PM on Global.
BIG BROTHER CANADA AT 7PM
"Hi Chris, you might remember me, I work the drive-thru windows
On February 29, 2020, 16 people entered the house and this game became their
whole world. But then suddenly the real world became surreal and just as
they were getting started it was over. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is
the right thing to do. Now, these 12 will walk out of the house and into the
unknown together... just like all of us.
March 23, 2020, at 4:47PM BBT:, we see clips of the HGs playing the game and
them being called to the living room. The executive producer of Big
Brother Canada, Erin Brock, addresses the houseguests, saying
they have difficult news to share and informed them the government of
Ontario ordered a total shut down of all non-essential businesses and they
have to end the production of the show this year.
The HGs are very quiet and emotional. Erin thanks each of them for being
a part of this season and they realize this must be crushing, but they have
been a distraction for Canadians and they should be proud of that. They will
spend one last night together. They need to bring them back to the real
world and they'll always be part of the Big Brother Canada family.
Hira says this sucks it's a dream and Brooke is crying and being consoled by
Sheldon. Rianne says she's sick about it that this is the way this ending.
She's nervous to go out in the real world and she's nervous to hear about
her hospital. Her heart goes out to nurses. Brooke is so upset and she walks
away and Sheldon goes to the HoH room.
Chris and Susanne are talking and they are glad they met each other. Angie
hugs Minh-ly and Angie says the time for games is over and that's OK.
Vanessa says a million things are running through her mind right now. She
comes from nothing, and to be the first person from her province brings her
so much pride.
Vanessa says something she didn't tell anyone in this house, four days
before she left her captain who fishes side-by-side with every day took his
own life and she almost didn't come. She's proud of herself for even just
being here. She hopes she made him proud.
Hira is emotional and crying. He says he never thought he would have gotten
this opportunity and he's proud of himself for fighting hard and he hopes
people don't let anything change them. It was hard leaving his daughter, but
he wants to keep things in perspective.
Sheldon and Brooke are in the Have-Not room. Brooke says there are bigger
things happening, but this is the biggest dream she ever had in her life.
She's wanted this since she was a little kid and she gave everything to be
here. She's grateful that she was here, but it's just too soon.
Sheldon says she can't find the silver lining. He really did commit to
this. He's a tough, stoic guy, but he doesn't know the words. This was
something he really, really cared about and it's going to take a while to
recover from this. Sheldon says there are definitely worse things going on
and it's tough to imagine it.
March 23, 8:22PM BBT: Maddy says this was a dream to be part of this show
and it's crumbling before her eyes. She's going to miss the game and the
people in it. Rianne comes in to comfort her in the Have-Not room. They are
all gathering to eat Chinese food. John-Luke says he was holding back that
he was very smart and was valedictorian. Vanessa tells everyone about KVBS.
Sheldon reveals he's a pro-wrestler.
Hira wants to know what Chris does and he says he's a neuroscientist and
works in hypnosis. Minh wants to tell some stuff to Vanessa after they leave
and she can't wait. She says they're too incriminating to say on TV. Sheldon
is sitting by the wall where it says One Hero Will Rise and Brooke says
that's disappointing. Sheldon says he will really miss all these people. The
HGs are getting ready for bed and Maddy is giving hugs.
7:27AM BBT: The Final Day Chris says waking up today is really surreal. The
house was starting to feel like home and now they will all be leaving.
Vanessa looks out into the backyard. Vanessa says Carol and her were talking
and they only had one eviction. Brooke asked Carol what her biggest take
away is and she says that they are all human. Carol says she's truly blessed
to have met and learned from all of these individuals. Hira says having no
sense of time made him value time. He says you learn not to take advantage
of the little things.
John-Luke is in a pink and black short outfit and Rianne says, beautiful
dude. Sheldon tells Carol that regardless of how the week was going to turn
out, it was just a game. They open the doors to the nomination room and they
all go look at their busts. Minh says it looks like a wax museum. Sheldon is
explaining what their process was to nominate people. Vanessa wants to know
if they can keep them.
March 24, 2020 12:24PM BBT:. Arisa comes on the screen and she greets them
and tells them she's at home. She knows it's been a trying few days and very
emotional. She knows this isn't how they wanted the season to end, but it
was one percent the right thing to do. Arisa wants to leave them with a look
at some of their good times and she shows them clips of themselves moving
in. Of Maddy meeting Micheal, of Jamar kissing Minh, Chris not recognizing
his mom. Arisa says they must be wondering about the grand prize. Obviously,
there is no winner of Season 8, so they've decided to donate the prize money
to pandemic relief.
Arisa says their families are all safe and healthy and she wants them to
hear it from their families and they all get clips from home. John-Luke says
it's a bittersweet day in this house, and it sucks to have this taken away.
Rianne says it feels so so weird right now.
March 24, 2020, 1:36PM BBT: Carol is told it's time for her to leave the Big
Brother house and she has time to say her goodbyes. She hugs everyone and
says this was a huge dream that so many people don't get to experience. And
regardless of any trials and tribulations she experienced, she would never
trade the friends she made in this game. She heads out the door. "
2:13PM BBT: Rianne, Maddy, and John-Luke are all told they can leave the
house. Maddy says Evictors Assemble. Hugs begin. Rianne says it's been a
crazy season. What a weird season of Big Brother. She just can't
even. Maddy says this has definitely been a journey for her. A once in a
lifetime opportunity. They are just a group of people who have their
differences but at the end of the day, they love each other. She thinks
that's what Big Brother is all about. She's not ready to leave
though. John-Luke says it is kind of scary to step out into the real world
when you've been in quarantine for 24 days. But he has faith in Canada and
the world to fight COVID-19.
Chris says he's going to miss his girls Susanne the most. She's a
sweetheart. Susanne is going to miss Chris the most. He says he was a cool
guy. Susanne says Chris would have won this game and says she never won an
HoH and Chris says they didn't get many chances. Chris says they'll be close
outside for sure. Susanne says she has his back in life and in here. Angie
comes in and Susanne says this was your dream too right? Angie says she quit
her job for this.
Angie is told it's time for her to leave. She says this game is not what
people think it is. She says you need strength and confidence in yourself
and people just don't understand how difficult it is. This was a true dream
and she's proud of herself for just doing it. Angie walks out the door.
March 24, 2020, 4:47PM BBT: The remaining HGs are just waiting to be the
next. Hira asks Minh if she thought she was a hero or a villain and she says
the villain. Hira says he was the hero. He feels like he represented himself
the best he could. He's super Hira and he's proud of it. Hira is told he can
leave. Hira gives hugs to everyone and he heads out the door.
Chris says he was one of the people in the game who got a chance to leave
his mark. He was in danger week one but he just started moving up. Chris and
Susanne, it's time to go. They give out hugs. Susanne says it's super sad to
see a dream of her' to come to an end. She's sad she couldn't see this
through, and she'll never know if she had a good game or not. They head out
March 24, 2020 6:18PM BBT: Vanessa is the next to leave. She goes down to
give hugs and get her bag. She heads upstairs and says Big Brother,
goodbye, I love you. Minh can't believe it's over. She thought about backing
out of this. Brooke says she's a tough chick and doesn't take crap and she's
kind too. Minh is told she can leave next. She says she is so impressed by
them. She doesn't want to leave.
Sheldon and Brooke sit on the nomination couch. Sheldon says he wanted to be
here for so long. This was literally the dream. Sheldon says this feels like
this is where they were supposed to be. Brooke keeps looking at Sheldon and
they hug and comfort each other and it's now their turn to leave the Big
Brother house. They sit there a bit longer. Brooke says she would say she is
so proud because she tried so hard. This is the biggest heartbreak of her
life. But as much as she's upset about the missed potential, she's grateful
to have this opportunity. Sheldon says this is really going to be tough to
get over. He fell in love with this game a few years back and he truly
believes he could have stayed another 1000 days.
Brooke doesn't know what her relationship with Sheldon outside of the game
looks like but she absolutely cares about him. They give a very long hug at
the door and look at the house. Sheldon kisses his hand and then pats the
floor and they exit through the door and we get shots of the empty house.

Don't Forget Tonight's Show
BIG BROTHER CANADA AT 7PM
Arisa, once again broadcasting from home, has a message for viewers. "When
we started season 8 three weeks ago, they could not have seen the
unfortunate events that would be coming up. "
"The provincial government has ordered all non-essential businesses closed
because of COVID-19 and that includes Big Brother Canada production.
They will be closing the season with two episodes: tonight's episode, which
were recorded before the shutdown, and next week's episode for an emotional
Previously, on Big Brother Canada, Sheldon won HoH and Carol said she
wants to go home. But she doesn't want to self-evict, she wants to be voted
out. Susanne and Angie got frustrated by the lack of gameplay because of
everyone being expelled or wanting to quit. Sheldon followed through with
Carol's wishes on nomination day and put up Carol with Minh next to her
covering his bases.
We pick up after the nomination ceremony on Day 21. Carol is relieved that
Sheldon stuck to his word.
After the first PoV competition, she didn't think she'd last one more
day. She's glad she lasted a full month and she's glad the house is going to
honor her wishes and send her out the door to her family.
Sheldon says this is his second HoH and he can't get anything done because
of the nonsense around the house. If Carol wants to leave, then she needs to
self-evict. But he really wants Minh to go. Minh says she's been on the
block twice now and they keep trying to get rid of her, but she's here to
Carol says she's excited to leave in five days and see and talk to her
daughter. She didn't think she'd feel this way because she's the strongest
person she knows. Rianne says it's hard to sympathize with someone who takes
the opportunity for granted. Rianne says she hijacked Sheldon's HoH and made
herself a target. Rianne is going to head upstairs.
Minh goes to talk to Sheldon. Minh says they have a complicated relationship
and she thinks he saw that she was a damsel in distress and she feels like
Sheldon loves her. She thanks him for putting her on the block and allowing
her to play veto. Sheldon says they are going through the process of trying
to come together. Sheldon says if he was watching her on TV, he for sure
would be cheering for her. Minh says diss me, then compliment me, then diss
me. She said she knows he does it because she likes it.
Brooke comes in to get her water bottle and Minh spins as she walks by to
leave and Brooke says style points! Brooke asks Sheldon what they are going
to do this week? Sheldon is venting about Carol and wants to know why she
won't just self-evict. He says people are getting behind her and are OK with
honoring her wishes. Sheldon is regretting giving his all to win that HoH
and Brooke says she hates to say she told him so. Sheldon says the only
thing we can say is we are one person closer to making it to final two.
Minh is talking to Chris and she says he's so diplomatic and she is not.
Chris says they aren't in the real world and they are playing a game. Minh
says she's used to doing whatever she wants. Chris is going to coach her and
keep her calm and under the radar, because you never know when he might need
her. Chris says she needs to turn the knob down and she says sometimes it's
good to have it turned up. Chris says she's a cool chick, but it's a
marathon, not a sprint.
John-Luke is complaining about being on slop. He says this is his first time
as a Have-Not and it sucks. Susanne is complaining about slop and Brooke
comforts her and says John-Luke is doing much better than Susanne is.
Minh tells Rianne and Maddy that she wants Susanne out of the house because
she's so whiny about being on slop and it's only been a day. Minh reminds
them the others wanted them out. Maddy says Minh has lied to her before, but
she has a point and if they can work together it would be good. Maddy says
they could work together and Minh says Susanne needs to go next week.
Minh is talking to Sheldon and Brooke and she tells them she left home when
she was 14. She tells us she feels like she has a tough exterior and it's
because of things she's been through. She says she's ran away and then got
put in foster care and ran away from that too. She's lived in group homes
over the years. Brooke and Sheldon thank her for sharing and Sheldon says
she's tough because of what she went through.
Rianne says there are two sides emerging in the house and people caught in
the middle, like Angie, are becoming more and more important. They are
talking in the Expedia room. Rianne asks her who she wouldn't want to win
HoH and Angie says Minh. Rianne says Angie wouldn't be a target though if
she won because Minh is mad at others. Rianne says she wouldn't want Vanessa
to win. Angie says Vanessa could be a wild card.
It's Day 22 and John-Luke has two wooden spoons that he's hitting together
and Rianne spells out Big Brother. It's time to draw players for the veto
competition! Sheldon has decided not to play in the PoV competition because
he doesn't want to make his target bigger. Minh and Carol join Sheldon.
Sheldon draws Hira. Carol draws Chris. Minh draws Vanessa. The host will be
Carol and Vanessa are in the color comic room and Minh comes in. Minh says
it's funny she chose Vanessa huh? They talk about Chris playing too and they
have some strong competitors in this game. Minh says if she wins PoV, maybe
she doesn't use it? Minh tells us who wins veto and doesn't use it? Of
course, she'll take herself down. Carol and Vanessa both tell Minh she has
to use the veto and make Sheldon get more blood on his hands.
Hira says he has to get Minh off the block. Susanne and Chris are there and
Susanne says Hira should take Carol off the block and send Minh home. Chris
says yeah, Carol. Sorry girl. Hira says he would do that. Get Carol out the
They are dressed up like executioners and Minh says she's hoping there is a
guillotine. Carol says this is a perfect costume for her because she's
executing herself this week. John-Luke says they'll pick up a cannonball and
walk across the draw bridge and rest a cannonball in one of the divots. But
if a cannonball falls, they'll have to go back and try again. The first to
get them all will win the PoV!
Minh says everyone tells her she's safe, but if she wins she can take
herself off the block and force Sheldon to get more blood on his hands.
Carol says if she can win, then she can keep nominations the same. She'll be
the first person to win it and not use it on themselves.
Minh is working on her second cannonball. Vanessa is working on her first.
She says last week she had to throw it. But she doesn't want to play that
way and she wants to redeem herself and show she came to win. Hira says this
may not be an important win this week for him, but he wants to build a
resume and win as much as he can. Hira has four balls.
Carol is working on her second ball. Carol says she doesn't have it in her
to just sit down and not participate. She's not a quitter. She will do her
part. Chris is catching up with Hira and he says it's important to be seen
as a strong, stable player. Hira has to reset and Chris has moved into the
lead. Chris is struggling with his cannonballs and he loses one and has to
Carol is at 4. Vanessa has five but they roll around. She saves them. Minh
has taken the lead, but her cannonballs are rolling. Chris has taken the
lead again and he's up to 10 cannonballs. He says no one can match this
Knight's heart or brain. We then see him lose all of his balls and he has to
Hira now has the lead again with 10. Minh is just behind with 9. She says
she was on the block last week and she knows everyone was willing to vote
her out. She needs to win veto because as long as she's on the block, she's
never safe. Hira is doing well but is shaky. Minh is in trouble and we go to
We're back and Hira is in the lead with Minh right behind. Hira only needs
three more cannonballs. He says he's so close to winning. He just needs to
take his time because if he loses his balance it's over. Hira says everyone
assumes the person with the biggest muscles will be a competition beast. You
don't need big muscles, you just need a big heart. He is on his last
cannonball and he places it and eases off the platform slowly. He makes it
back to the start and Hira has won PoV!
Hira says he's king veto and he's the one to beat this season. Minh says
she's happy for Hira, but she doesn't know what that does for his game. That
was a useless win. Hira goes to the storage room and celebrates. He says it
doesn't mean much this week, but something on the resume.
Maddy, Rianne, and John-Luke are in the bathtub together. Vanessa calls the
HGs and she thinks it's between John-Luke and Susanne. Vanessa is at the
front of the living room and she has the Have-Nots sit on one couch.
Attention, for one of them life as they know it is about to change for the
better. Canada has been voting to save one of the Have-Nots and they'll get
a meal of their choice and they'll also get to skip slop for the rest of the
week. The Have-Not Canada has decided to save is... John-Luke.
John-Luke says not on slop baby! It feels amazing to be voted off of the
slop! Big love to Canada, his home and native land. Thanks guys! He gets his
delivery and it's sitting on a podium. He says he could cry right now
knowing he won't have slop anymore.
Sheldon is asking Minh what is going on? She says what do you mean? He says
what's with the pretty cockroach look? She says she needed something to do
today. He asks her to hand him something honey. She says she likes him
better when he insults her. She is grossed out when someone is coming on to
her and they are sweet. He says that's why he was sweet so she'd be
disgusted by him.
Susanne is talking to Brooke and Sheldon and Susanne pitches voting out
Minh. She says that would be savage. Brooke thinks it's a better move to
send out Carol because the damage control they would have to do would be
difficult. Sheldon says it's savage to hold the house hostage and tell them
to vote her out. Sheldon says he has the chop a vote so he only needs four
votes. He's with Susanne that they have to get Minh out, but he knows Brooke
HG are all called to the living room. Eric Brock comes on and she has an
update for them. As of today, March 21, she names the number of cases and
how many deaths there have been around the world and around Canada. She says
they have asked all Canadians to come home and they have closed the borders
to all non-essential travel. They have continued to speak with their
families and they are all family. Vanessa's family is home and
self-isolating and Susanne's Italian family is safe and healthy.
Hira asks about sporting events. Erin tells them all major sports leagues
are shut down or postponed. They say the world has stopped. They say they're
safer in the house and they are fortunate to be in there. Hira says it's
hard to hear the world is shutting down for a bit. He says being isolated
from the world and not knowing what is going on is weird. Susanne says this
all seems pointless now and Chris is comforting her and says she couldn't do
anything if she were out in the real world. Chris says his life would be
screwed if he were out in the world. Susanne says it's hard to get your head
in the game when something like this is going on. Chris says they are in
their own little reality there.
It's time for the PoV Ceremony. Hira says he has three options. He can take
Carol off the block, take Minh off the block, or keep nominations the same.
Carol is having a hard time in the house and he can leave her on the block
and respect her wishes or take her off the block and stir some chaos. Taking
Minh off the block would be unexpected and he's not afraid to do something
unexpected because he's socially strong in the game.
Hira goes to the living room for the ceremony. He asks Minh why he should
save her? She congratulates him and says he looks like the PoV king of the
house, but she doesn't need him to use the veto on her because she's the
roach. Carol says the HGs all know how she feels and she would ask that he
not use the power of veto on her and send her packing.
Hira says he knows Minh tried to butter him with that great tofu dish, but
it didn't work. He has decided not to use the power of veto. Everyone is
hugging. Arisa says Season 8 has come to an early end. There will not be an
episode tomorrow night, but there will be one next week. She says all the
HGs are now out of the house and home safe with their families. This is NOT
how they expected this season to end.

Hira won the PoV, we don't expect him to use it, but what a hoot it would be if he saved Carol, almost forcing her to self-evict...
just saying, we could use some unepected.
Chris: "Where's the difference between a vote & self-evicting?" Carol: "I feel that self-evicting is weak. Getting voted out is a choice" Vanessa: "And she gets through the process: an interview with Arisa, get a proper flight home paid by the company, be back for finale" #bbcan8pic.twitter.com/j3V9glesVY
Minh about Jamar: "He wanted the house meeting more than I wanted it. He pushed me to do it. He hijacked it. He hated Kyle! I was walking into a room, he was talking to the camera & was like 'I'm telling them how much I hate Kyle!" Brooke: "Really?" Sheldon: "He's not ok" #bbcan8pic.twitter.com/1mJWYMx20G
Hira: "Chris & Minh would be the easiest ones to put up for me next week" Ri wants to BD Chris & put up Vanessa & someone else: "Maybe Sue, but I have a good relationship with her" Ri is very annoyed by Carol who can't stop complaining: "Sorry that we all wanna be here!" #bbcan8pic.twitter.com/VXxkdadfN2
Ri is telling Maddy & Hira that Carol would like to have motivational speakers in the house: "Are you fucking kidding me? She wants them to turn off the feeds & have motivational talks for all of us." Maddy: "I don't get it." Hira: "She's here for the wrong reasons." #bbcan8pic.twitter.com/Kh6vRW7RCq
