Another returning player took a one-way trip to the jury house this week, as Big Brother Canada’s Bruno Ielo of Ottawa, Ont. is sent packing in a vote of 5 to 1. After losing three allies back to back in previous weeks, Bruno was seconds away from grasping the power in the “ParticipACTION 150 Play List” Head of Household competition. Instead he was bested by “The Greek”; his former ally Demetres Giannitsos. At this turn of events, Bruno knew he and his ride-or-die Kevin Martin were in hot water. Despite a compelling plea to Demetres and his queen Ika Wong suggesting they all reunite to take out the floating newbies, Bruno and Kevin saw their worst nightmare come true as they were nominated alongside one another.

When he was unable to keep close enough count in the harrowingly distracting “100 Minutes of Heaven” Power of Veto competition, Bruno lost his last chance to save himself from the block. While Kevin was miraculously rescued by William’s Secret Power of Veto and feisty Karen Singbeil was named a nominee in his place, Bruno was unable to convince enough of his housemates that keeping him would be in their best interest, and he became the third second-chance houseguest to be sent to the jury house.
“You know what, if my enemies in the house were in power, I was going home, and if my side of the house was in power, I’d still be going home,” said Bruno. “It was just a tough go, but I have nothing but respect for everyone in there. Such great competitors, and such a great season!”
When William’s secret power was used, Demetres was forced to get more blood on his hands, putting Karen on the block and weakening her faith in him. Karen confronted Demetres immediately following the anything but normal POV ceremony cursing his decision and unleashing what would become a week of misery in the house with all the houseguests running for cover from a very angry and paranoid Karen. Determined to keep the jury house newbie-free, Dre took it upon herself to campaign for a crumbling Karen, and managed to keep her safe despite her bad attitude. Bruno will join veterans Sindy and Neda at the jury house this week, where the two have been keeping busy reconnecting with nature…and dissecting their dramatic departures.
