Sarah Hanlon

A 27 year old vapour lounge hemployee from Toronto, Ontario. A free-spirit from Toronto and self-proclaimed grown-up version of Lisa Simpson. Over the course of the game she kept very close to the other girls in the house, mainly Sindy, Britnee, and Willow - the latter forming a Romantic Two-Girl Friendship with her. Sarah did not have an easy ride to the end, as she accidentally evicted Willow soon after cementing their trust (during a triple eviction in which Sarah believed that Kevin would stay and wanted to try and keep Pilar to win her over, not realizing that the others wanted to keep Willow) and constantly being targeted by the other side of the house due to her highly strategic mind. but in week 8 she managed to puller herself out of a slump by winning the Veto to pull herself off the block and soon after the Head of Household, which enabled her to finally evict Zach. Though she lost Britnee in week 10 and both parts of the final HOH competition, Godfrey chose her to join him in the final two. Ultimately, it was her keen strategic moves and ability to deflect the target off herself and onto other people that convinced the jury to vote her the winner.

  • The Anti-Nihilist: She boasts about not believing in anything - religion, marriage, government, etc. This means she has plenty of time to not worry about things and just relax.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Has been gunning for Zach for weeks. With one week away from the finale, Sarah, Godfrey, and Brittnee are the ones who finally send him out.
  • Erudite Stoner: She lets all the houseguests know on her first night that she'll be the most chill.
  • Genki Girl: She tries to hide it, but it comes out around week 3. The only one in the house as energetic as her is Willow.
  • Heroic BSoD: She had a minor one after Willow's eviction.
  • Hidden Depths: It was joked that since she was like Anick and Talla, that she wouldn't make it very far or be relevant... surprisingly this was not the case.
  • Irony: After being voted as the have nots by Canada, Sarah and Brittnee assume that Canada hated them and that they were voted Have nots to punish them. However, if they knew what the viewers did...
  • Meganekko: Often wears glasses, and is the nerdiest girl in the house.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Disguised as stand-up comedy during Week 4's BBTV task.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Willow
  • Secret Keeper: She's the only person who knows that Sindy met with the other evicted houseguests and knows about every single alliance in the house.
  • Tender Tears: Sarah is capable of separating her emotions from her gameplay, but she still gets quite emotional and weepy when in private.
  • Worthy Opponent: Was seen as this by Kevin and Zach.


     Runner Up 

Godfrey Mangwiza

A 22 year old student Toronto, Ontario. A Zimbabwe-born psychology major from Toronto who won’t stop at anything to win the $100,000. After sleeping his way through the first through weeks, he was put on the block in week 5 by Zach against Jordan, with the promise that there would be a backdoor. However, it soon became clear that Zach would rather keep the nominations the same and save his own skin than break his other alliances in the house, making Godfrey publicly swear that he was coming after Zach at the POV ceremony. It was enough to make the majority houseguests realize the threat Zach and Jordan were, and saved his skin that week. After that Godfrey became a more important player in the house: though he never formed any close alliances in the house, he was on good terms with everyone and was able to slip away from eviction week after week. He won the final HOH and chose Sarah to join him over Ashleigh, and came in second place behind her.

  • Awaken The Sleeping Giant: Says this word for word when he realizes how much of a threat Zach is to him and the rest of the house. Also a literal example, as he hadn't done much in the weeks lading up to that.
  • Black and Nerdy: He's a psychology major, and wears glasses.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Lampshaded - after the triple eviction, said he thought he would be evicted first because the black dude always dies first. Turns into outright Inverted when he becomes the last male houseguest.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Tries to flirt with Britnee, but it doesn't work too well. Also proclaims he's the number one lady's man.
  • Crazy Enough to Work: His plan to out Zach as a huge threat and how he's screwing over Jordan while on the block actually managed to get him enough votes to stay.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Throws almost every competition or gets outplayed - until the final head of household.
  • Graceful Loser: Apparently knew he'd lose to Sarah, and chose her over Ashleigh, who he more than likely would have beat, because he wanted to repay Sarah and Britnee for remaining some of his only allies.
  • Heavy Sleeper: He napped his way to week 5, and when he finally woke up in the game everybody was making jokes about it.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: He's attractive enough in the house, but looks incredibly handsome in a tuxedo.
  • Hot Scientist: That being said, he's very buff and seen as more of a physical threat than a mental one.
  • Honor Before Reason: In a startling repeat of Survivor: Cagayan and Big Brother 16, he takes the one person out of the final three he will have no chance of beating with him at the end.
  • Ironic Nickname: He refers to himself as "Mr. Mangwiza the Lady Pleasa" over the course of the season, but by the end of the game hadn't gotten a single showmance. Both Marsha and Jordan pointed out that Sarah was a better Lady Pleasa than Godfrey was.
  • Irony: His defining moment and the beginning of his game was when he declared that he wanted Zach's blood on his hands. However, during the jury questions in the finale, he pointed out that despite all that he was able to get other people to go after his targets and ended up playing a bloodless game.
  • Kill Me Now, or Forever Stay Your Hand: As per tradition in Veto ceremonies, Zach gave Godfrey a chance to make a case for why he should use the Power of Veto on him. Godfrey's answer? Don't, because if he's safe then he's gunning directly at Zach the next week. Zach listened to him, but the rest of the house did too - and they wanted him to stay to help get rid of Zach.
  • Loophole Abuse: Ain't No Rule saying you can't give letters to someone you want to win during a spelling competition.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Godfrey's strategy was to throw every competition to make people think he was weak. When he put his mind to it, he shows that he actually is nowhere near as clueless as he appeared.
  • Ship Tease: With Britnee, or so he thinks. It's one sided though.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Gives one to Zach about how low a move it was to use his partner (Jordan) as a pawn to get him out, and making it clear that he's coming after him next.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Chicken feet.


Newport, Fortress, and the Bromuda Triangle

Newport was of the first alliances made, between Jordan and Zach. Around the same time, Kevin "formed" the Fortress alliance with Jordan even though Jordan was only playing along to make Kevin feel safe. In week 3 the two combined into the Bromuda Triangle, though at the core it was still Newport and Kevin is simply a third wheel. Effectively dissolved in week 5 with the eviction of Jordan, who was part of all three alliances.

  • Brains and Brawn: Zach and Jordan's reasoning for working together. Zach is a huge physical competitor, and Jordan is a mental one.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: Kevin believes that he and Jordan are the main members of the Triangle, not realizing that he and Zach are loyal to each other more than they are to him.

Chop Shop

The large alliance for the early part of the competition, consisting of Bobby, Graig, Zach, Ashleigh, Willow, and Bruno. Began to crumble with the eviction of Graig in week 3, causing a division to grow between Bruno and Bobby on one side and Zach, Ashleigh, and Willow on the other. Officially ended in week 5 after the eviction of Jordan, which signalled to Zach that he had lost favour with Bobby and Bruno.

  • A House Divided: The main reason it fell apart after Graig's eviction. Zach pulled the girls onto his side of the house, focusing more on them than Bobby and Bruno. Bobby believed that the shop was going strong, but Bruno saw the cracks immediately and tried to get Bobby out of there much earlier than when the actual split occurred.

Fembots and the SSB Submarine.

The Fembots were formed between Sarah and Britnee during the latter's reign as HOH in week three. They joined together with Sindy upon her return, forming the SSB Submarine.

  • Fat and Skinny: Sarah is quite thin, whereas Britnee is a plus-size model. Sindy, joining later, falls in about the middle - not as voluptuous as Britnee but much curvier than Sarah.

Diaper Alliance

An alliance between the five youngest houseguests, which also happens to include the two couples (Zach & Ashleigh, Kevin & Pilar) and Willow. Began to "tear" in week 7 with the eviction of Kevin and Willow, and the diaper finally..."ripped" in week 9 as Zach and Pilar were evicted as well.

  • Third Wheel: Willow became a fifth wheel after her other alliance-mates paired up with each other, and this made her drift closer to Sarah.
  • Toilet Humour: It's called The Diaper Alliance. And when he knew he was going home, Zach used a very colourful and gross metaphor to explain just how badly the diaper had been torn.

     Evicted Houseguests 

Risha Denner

A 41 year old waitress from Toronto, Ontario. This sensitive, statuesque beauty from Toronto is the complete package. She was put on the block her first night in the house when the houseguests were forced to vote for nominees. She was evicted by Canada's vote and was the first to leave the house this season, though Arisa told her that her game may not be over yet...

  • Absolute Cleavage: Most of her outfits veer into this territory, the only exception so far being her competition-mandated veto competition outfit.
  • Mrs. Robinson: She proudly describes herself as a cougar.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Instead of going home, she was put back in sequester and informed that she might have a chance to return to the game. However, she lost the competition to return and was permanently evicted in week 5.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's 6'1" without heels, and was sporting some when she entered the house anyway. When people voted to put her on the block, since they could barely remember her name, most of them called her "the hot, tall woman".
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: First houseguest evicted.

Naeha Sareen

A 29 year old chiropractor from Toronto, Ontario. A spunky entrepreneur from Toronto whose social game is her best and worst asset. She was instantly evicted at the beginning of week 3 during Kevin's short HOH.

  • Informed Attribute: Everyone really REALLY wanted her out - but not much of this was seen.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Instead of going home, she was put back in sequester and informed that she might have a chance to return to the game. However, she lost the competition to return and was permanently evicted in week 5.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: She didn't get much screen time other than her friendship with Sarah.

Graig Merritt

A 36 year old baseball coach and scout from Pitt Meadows, B.C. Former MLB player and currently a Scout for the league, as well as an avid yogi. He was backdoored by Britnee in the second round of week 3.

  • Catchphrase: Multiple. "Ginga Ninja", "#604", and "Propa" were the main ones. The last was taught to him by Godfrey.
  • Dumb Muscle: Called this by Jordan. Jordan also called Bobby one.
  • Fiery Redhead: Seems to be this if his intro video is any indication.
  • It's All About Me: When put on the block in Week 3, he tells people that they should keep him because Production wants him here and the show won't be entertaining without him.
  • Jerkass: Starting to delve into this territory as of late, getting smug, being a general jerk to the girls, (especially Britnee) and acting like the show is all about him.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Instead of going home, he was put back in sequester and informed that he might have a chance to return to the game. However, he lost the competition to return and was permanently evicted in week 5.
  • Properly Paranoid: He becomes suspicious that Britnee and Johnny are working together when he sees them spend four hours together in the HOH room, even though Britnee had promised to Graig that she would evict him. Unfortunately for Graig, he realizes this after he's lost all his chances to secure his safety and is soon after his suspicions are proven correct when Britnee nominates him and declares that he was her target all along.

Johnny Colatruglio

A 26 year old IT manager from Winnipeg, Manitoba. A boy-crazy, attention-loving superfan from Winnipeg with a dog named Veto. He was evicted fifth after Bruno targeted his and Sarah's alliance.

  • Ascended Fanboy: Like most of the contestants, but he's the season's resident "superfan". He even named his dog Veto!
  • Camp Gay: Very.
  • Crocodile Tears: During the nomination ceremony in week three, Britnee made a very clear threat towards him about how she never forgets when somebody writes her name down. Johnny spent the next few days moping in public, but it was all an act by the two of them to make Graig feel safe.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Instead of going home, he was put back in sequester and informed that he might have a chance to return to the game. However, he lost the competition to return and was permanently evicted in week 5.

Jordan "JP" Parhar

A 21 year old student from Cloverdale, B.C. This small but mighty conservative from Surrey isn’t shy in sharing his opinions on anything. He started the Newport alliance with Zach early on in the game and stayed behind the scenes for the first few weeks, but after some wrenches got tossed into their plans by week 5 he offered himself up as a pawn. This backfired when Zach chose not to use the POV on Jordan, sealing the latter's fate. The other side of the house opted to keep Godfrey, who had publicly declared that he was going after Zach, over Zach's close ally Jordan. He was the sixth person evicted and first member of the jury. However, the final twist of the season also saw him evicted from the jury to prevent an even number of jurors.

  • Consummate Liar: There are times when he uses this as strategy, such as towards Johnny in Week 4.
  • Deader Than Dead: Evicted from the jury.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "Hi, I'm Jordan with a J." in response to Sindy's incessant demand for everyone to call her Sindy with an S.
  • Enemy Mine: With Godfrey against Zach in week 5.
  • Genre Blind: He's genuinely hurt when he realizes that Zach's been out for himself more than their alliance, even though that's generally what players do in the game. Still, he took it more as a blow against their friendship than their alliance. When he was evicted, he accepted that he made terrible decisions.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He volunteered as a pawn to make it look like he and Zach weren't in an alliance, and then threw the ensuing Veto competition to make himself appear weak. This came back to bite him as Zach ended up not saving him that week, and he was evicted shortly after.
  • Humiliation Conga: Getting evicted by his own stupidity as well as being evicted from the jury counts as this.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to Zach's Manly Man.
  • Tender Tears: He cries pretty easily when he gets emotional enough, with Zach's betrayal opening the floodgates.

     Jury Members 

Sindy "with an 'S'" Nguyen

A 25 year old cruise director and pageant queen from Toronto, Ontario. If there's one thing to know about this pageant princess, it's that she's "Sindy with an "S". She was voted to go on the block on her first night in the house by the other houseguests, but she pulled herself off by winning the veto. However, her attempts to make a girls alliance the next week were overheard by Kevin, who used the information to move the target off of him and onto Sindy. She was the second houseguest evicted.

In week 5 she competed against Risha, Naeha, Graig, and Johnny and successfully won her way back into the house. After winning an additional competition to keep herself safe for a week she was able to flip the house and get rid of Jordan. However this was short lived, as she was still seen as a threat the next week and unable to gain the votes she needed to save herself, being evicted once again and becoming the second juror.

  • Asian and Nerdy; Invoked when she had to solve a logic puzzle to secure temporary immunity when reentering the house, declaring that she shouldn't have a problem because she's Asian.
  • Back from the Dead: She regained entry into the house in week 5, but was soon after evicted in week 6.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: She spent most of the time during her post-eviction sequester sleeping on the couch while Risha, Naeha, and Graig all trained for their eventual return. When it came time for the endurance competition to get back in, she won against everyone else.
  • Berserk Button: Misspelling her name.
  • Failed a Spot Check: The main reason she ended up evicted the first time. She was plotting a girls alliance in the HOH room and got several others on board - only to have Kevin walk out from the bathroom having heard the entire thing. He told Bobby, Sindy was identified as the ringleader, and she was deemed too much of a threat to eep around.
  • Honey Trap: Tries this several times. First she grinds against the glass wall between her and Bobby during the HOH competition to try and distract him, and when he ended up winning anyway she started snuggling with him and stroking his abs. After that became a lost cause, she had a one-night make out session with Jordan to try and get on his good side. Unfortunately for her, none of those worked.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: After returning to the house she let everyone (except Sarah) think that she had been by herself since her eviction, when in reality she had been given a blueprint of every alliance in the house thanks to staying with the four other Houseguests during her sequester.
  • Only Mostly Dead: Instead of going home, she was put back in sequester and informed that she might have a chance to return to the game. She successfully reentered in week 5.
  • Ship Tease: With Jordan, who she flirted with in week 2 in order to try and stay. It was rekindled upon her return, but ended again - this time with Jordan's eviction.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Or she'll make you pay.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She's one of the smallest contestants physically and came in last in the veto's physical component, but flew immediately to the front with the mental parts and won.
    • Took a Level in Badass: The next challenge was an endurance competition for Head of Household, and she was able to last three hours and come in second. The only reason Bobby beat her was because he was a rock-climber and thus had a distinct advantage.

Bobby Hlad

A 27 year old rock climber from Oakville, Ontario. This adventure-seeker from Oakville lives at home working for the family business. Became the first official Head of Household. During the middle of the game he began telling houseguests that he had obtained a secret POV from a game twist, though this was a lie. In week 6 Kevin decided to flush it out and, upon discovering that it never existed in the first place, the house evicted Bobby and made him the third juror.

  • Blind Obedience: To the Chop Shop. Even finding out that Zach wanted to evict him didn't change his mind. He finally caught on in week 6 when he heard Willow and Ashleigh jokingly declare that they had "chopped the Chop Shop". The alliance had barely existed for the past three weeks, but Bobby thought that this was a sudden indicator of a girl's alliance.
  • Crocodile Tears: During the instant eviction in week 3, he acted incredibly torn up about having to evict Naeha. It was all an act, of course, since she was a major threat to his game.
  • The Fool: His Blind Obedience to the Chop Shop, even after it was blatantly clear that the alliance had ended and he and Bruno were on the outs, could have cost him his game. The only thing that flipped him was Britnee telling him that he was going to be backdoored that week until Zach shifted his focus to Godfrey. Even after that, he still thought the Chop Shop was going strong until a few days before his eviction.

Kevin Martin

A 22 year old poker player form Calgary, Alberta. He plans on will charming the pennies out of everyone's pockets. Though he made waves early in the game due to his mental and physical skill, he managed to sink behind the scenes and allow bigger targets to emerge, thus allowing the heat off his back. It was also at this point that he started a showmance with Pilar and began working with the other couple in the house, Zach and Ashleigh. During week 7 he won HOH and was able to maneuver things so that Bobby would be evicted even though his alliance wanted Godfrey out. His plan was a success, but the victory was short-lived as he was nominated by Britnee in the triple eviction later that night and was evicted alongside Willow, becoming the fourth juror.

  • Ambiguously Bi: He has a close friendship with Johnny, but is mainly using it for strategic friendship. Still, he states in one of his confessionals that he doesn't necessarily need to be attracted to somebody to flirt with them or enjoy being with them physically. During his "queer sandwich" with Sarah and Johnny, he settles on "open". Then, later on, he dresses up as a french maid. To be fair, it wasn't his choice, but the fact he has such a feminine figure compared to the other guys has led a few questioning his relationship with Pilar.
  • Anti-Villain: Admittedly, he's playing pretty underhandedly, but he's a decent guy outside of the game, genuinely regretted voting out Johnny, and has a genuine connection with Pilar. Not to mention he was pretty upset that Jordan was voted out.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Acts like a nice guy but is willing to backstab anyone. He could very well be this season's Dan Ghesling if given the chance.
  • For the Evulz: His reasoning for sabotaging the challenge to get everyone's belongings back boiled down to "it'd be so mean, but Canada would love to watch".
  • Keet: A rare anti-villainous example. Kevin is very energetic, even when he's stabbing you in the back he's doing it with a smile.
  • Likes Older Women: He expresses his preference for older women early on. Doesn't stop him from voting to nominate Risha in the first week, though. It also doesn't stop his showmance with Pilar.
  • Official Couple: With Pilar. Even commented on wanting to screw her when she was the referee in the Soccer competition.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: The first challenge given to the houseguests was holding five giant balloons off the ground for five hours in order to win access to their personal belongings. Kevin was challenged by Big Brother to pop one of the balloons in order to win $1000. He went through with it.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: How Kevin feels about the current jury members according to a confessional during Bruno's boot episode.
  • Two First Names
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Hoo boy. He becomes this big time by opting to get Johnny out of the veto competition when the guy saved him last week.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Starting to compete with Zach for the title of most shirtless contestant. Though he's significantly less muscular than Zach.

Willow MacDonald

A 26 year old sales rep from Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. This Nova Scotia-born tomboy recently moved to Calgary for work, fun, and plenty of adventure. Though she began the game working closely with Zach and Ashleigh, over time the Third Wheel aspects of her alliances caused her to forma close friendship with Sarah. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to save her during the triple eviction in week 7. She was evicted alongside Kevin and became the fifth juror.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Is currently in a showmance with Sarah, and has some butch mannerisms about her. She even kissed Sarah.
  • Genki Girl: Often joking and goofing around.
  • Heel Realization: With Ashleigh after the two of them realize that the Chop Shop is very much a guys alliance, and that the number of girls in the house are dwindling rapidly. It didn't stick, however, as the two of them stuck with Zach over allying with Britnee and Sarah's alliance.
  • Inelegant Blubbering: Upon her eviction.
  • Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: With Sarah.
  • Tomboy: Stated in her bio, and her intro video showed her skateboarding.

Bruno Ielo

A 31 year old construction worker from Ottawa, Ontario. Ottawa's first houseguest is competing for his wife and sons. Bruno began the game aligning with power players Graig and Bobby, but began sinking behind the radar after Graig was evicted and Bobby started to become a bigger target for Zach. Once Bobby left the house Bruno knew he was going to be a target, but was able to win Zach's favour by saving him during the Triple Eviction in week 7. However this success was short lived, since a twist in week 8 allowed Britnee to blindside Bruno and put him on the block next to Zach, where Bruno was sent packing and became the sixth juror.

  • I Know Mortal Kombat: During a POV challenge that involved aiming skills, he claimed that his history of playing video games had prepared him well for the challenge. It worked, too, since he won.
  • Manly Tears: Like many contestants on the show, cried these after reading the letter he got from home and seeing the pictures of his sons.
  • Papa Wolf: Is this for his kids. He won the HOH by virtue of wanting to see his kids again.
  • Spear Counterpart: By the end he'd become one for Sarah from the previous season, as he's motivated a lot by his kids and breaks into tears when he gets the chance to see a video of them before he moves into the jury house.
  • Younger Than They Look: He's only 32 by the time he leaves the house, but he played up his age a lot and the other houseguests joked about Zach being his son.

Zach Oleynik

A 22 year old student from Regina, Saskatchewan (and the first contestant from the province). An ambitious pre-med student and Quarterback for the University of Regina’s football team.He and Jordan formed the Newport alliance early on in the game and stayed behind the scenes for the first few weeks, but after some wrenches got tossed into their plans by week 5 he had to put up his partner as a pawn to make it look like they weren't as close as people thought. However, by the time of the POV ceremony Zach got cold feet and refused to save Jordan, effectively ending their alliance. Though he still held a lot of power in the house, as the weeks went by he steadily lost people he can manipulate and trust, and found himself on the block two weeks in a row. The second nomination stuck, and he became the seventh juror.

Interestingly, Zach gained notoriety with some people between the announcement of him being a House Guest and the season beginning, as fans were able to find old tweets of him being quite nasty to Peter Brown during the latter's time in the house in season 1. Upon Zach's eviction, however, Peter told him that all was forgiven and that Kharma's a bitch.

  • Affably Evil: He's polite and kind to everyone, as long as you aren't targeting him or his friend, Jordan. But he's also a very good manipulator, who is intentionally throwing challenges.
  • The Charmer: Everybody likes him, and it took them five weeks to realize that in a social game like Big Brother that it makes him a huge threat.
  • Cuteness Proximity: With the toy dog Rocky, which he completely adores. Ashleigh calls it a "dogmance", and says that it makes Zach about 10 times cuter.
  • Even the Guys Want Him: Pretty much everyone in the house has pointed out how attractive he is. Especially Johnny.
  • Heroic Build: To the point where the other houseguests started calling him "Captain Canada".
  • Genius Bruiser: He's pretty smart if the fact that he's a Pre-Med student is any indication and he's very physical capable. He's also a Chemistry Major. He describes himself as a "triple threat".
  • Graceful Loser: Didn't hold any I'll will towards Ashleigh or Godfrey for voting him out. And mentions he was raised to be gracious in defeat.
  • In-Universe Nickname: "Captain Canada" because of easily being the most physically competent player this season.
  • Hollywood Nerd: The guy is a Chemistry Major and pre med student. He's very handsome.
  • Karmic Eviction: Made some very nasty tweets about Peter Brown's gameplay. He finished the same place as Peter did.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In Peter Brown's eyes. Zach made some nasty tweets about Peter's gameplay during Peter's season, which Peter responded to in turn when the season finished. When Zach was evicted, Peter pointed out that he made several of the same mistakes that Peter did and blamed his eviction on Karma. He still forgave Zach, however.
  • The Mole: For his and Jordan's Newport alliance inside the Chop Shop.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Just look at him. Well-built, an attractive face, a six pack, and a pre-med student.
  • Oh, Crap!: When his closest ally Jordan was evicted, since not only did his plan to remove Godfrey fail but he knows the majority of the house is now gunning for him.
  • Ship Tease: With Ashleigh.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Rarely wears one.
  • Worthy Opponent: Was seen as this by Sarah and Britnee.

Pilar Nemer

A 22 year old student from Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. This sassy Mexican-born beauty grew up with 10 siblings and knows how to fight for herself. After Sindy won the veto and got herself on the block, Pilar was chosen by her as a replacement. However, Risha was evicted by Canada and Pilar stayed safe another week. After that she began a showmance with Kevin which kept her safe for most of the game, and was even able to win HOH in week 6. Ultimately, however, Pilar was not a major player - her biggest advantage was being in an alliance with Zach and Ashleigh, and after Britnee and Sarah won consecutive HO Hs it turned out to be Pilar's biggest weakness. She left immediatly after Zach in the double eviction and became the eighth juror.

  • Borrowed Catchphrase: "Expect the unexpected", which is a catchphrase for the whole Big Brother series, but Pilar says it just as often as the hosts and promotional material.
  • Buffy Speak: Lapses into this every now and then due to English not being her first language.
  • The Ditz: The other houseguests don't consider her very intelligent. To be fair, her upbringing isn't Canadian and English isn't her first language.
  • Genki Girl: Went a little too crazy blowing the whistle as a referee for the Have-Have Not soccer competition.
  • It Is Pronounced "Tro-PAY": She pronounces it "Pee-lee", though most of the houseguests, along with the announcer and Arisa, pronounce it phonetically.
  • Official Couple: With Kevin.
  • Out of Focus: During the first four weeks, she was almost invisible.
  • Satellite Love Interest: The main reason she gets screen time these days is because of her showmance with Kevin, who's playing much harder than she is.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: She's literally always smiling and cheerful, even when she was evicted.

Britnee Blair

A 25 year old plus-size model from Calgary, Alberta. Vivacious and curvaceous, the Calgary native currently works in New York. She managed to win the second HOH of week 3, motivated by the loss of her ally Naeha. After her reign, however, she became the season's resident "pawn star", sitting on the block in order to deflect votes to a different target. She became increasingly fed up with this and managed to crown herself a second time during week 7's triple eviction, where she managed to orchestrate Kevin and Willow's eviction. Her luck continued into week 8 where she was selected by Canada to compete for, and win, the power to remove two houseguests from the block and replace them with her own nominees - enabling her to evict Bruno. Her power continued when she and Sarah won consecutive HO Hs in the week 9, and the duo evicted Zach and Pilar. Her luck run out in week 10 when she was unable to win the veto and keep herself safe, forcing Sarah to nominate her and allowing Asheligh to evict her note . Britnee became the ninth juror.

  • Alliterative Name: Britnee Blair.
  • Big Beautiful Woman: Though it took her a while to see it while she was young, she's clearly come to love herself (obviously, since this trope is now her profession).
  • Chess Motifs: Invoked quite often. Began when she won HOH after being a pawn for the past two weeks, as she flipped things around and became the queen. At the end of her "pawn star" period Kevin brought it up again, trying to motivate her by saying that the pawns are the most important pieces and can even become the queen. Sure enough, she became HOH not long after and sent Kevin to the jury house.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Along with Sarah and Godfrey, finally sends Zach out after wanting to do so for weeks.
  • Gaslighting: Does this to Graig. She acts like she's following all of his advice and not considering nominating him, while all the time her master plan is to backdoor him while he thinks he's safe. When she does finally reveal this too him, he starts becoming very angry and confrontational with her, Johnny, and most of the other houseguests - essentially torpedoing his social game.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: Zig-zagged. Brittnee works as a plus sized model, but is a much more realistic example of this trope than commonly portrayed.
  • Hidden Depths: The Pawn star manages to win three Head of Household competitions, and a competition for a secret power.
  • Required Secondary Powers: Did very well in a balance competition, stating that the reason for this was because, as a model, she has to stand in high heels for very long periods of time.

Ashleigh Wood

A 21 year old former student from Calgary, Alberta. A sweetheart from a family of seven siblings who knows how to hold her own in big groups. She quickly began flirting, and later forming a showmance, with Zach, and the two of them became the season's main power couple. Though Ashleigh was able to hold her own in some competitions, her main advantage was her alliance with Zach. This also made her a large target, however, and though she was able to escape eviction she had lost all of her close allies by the final week of the season. In the final week Asheligh won the all-important veto to get herself to the final three and went against Godfrey in the final HOH competition, but lost. Godfrey chose to evict her, citing the dominating power of showmances the past two seasons and making her the final juror.

  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Spends most of the game as a Satellite Love Interest like Pilar, until she wins a Head of Household and three consecutive vetoes (More than anyone this season). This evidently resulted in Godfrey seeing her as a threat.
  • Give Geeks a Chance: Similar to Ashley from BB14, she has Ship Tease with the small snarking geek Jordan. Also has one with Zach, though he's sort of a mix between geek and jock.
  • Heel Realization: With Willow after the two of them realize that the Chop Shop is very much a guys alliance, and that the number of girls in the house are dwindling rapidly. It didn't stick, however, as the two of them stuck with Zach over allying with Britnee and Sarah's alliance.
  • Official Couple: With Zach.
  • Ship Tease: With Zach, until they became an official couple.


How well does it match the trope?
