Why did Rachel Reilly visit BBCAN? Who’s the new HOH?

Big Brother Canada 11’s Friday Digital Daily was the shortest yet at only 47 minutes, so this write-up will also be short and sweet.

There was no clear reference to when it was taped, but I’d guess it was from early Wednesday, the day after they taped Renee’s eviction.

The probable spoiler I posted yesterday turned out to be accurate: Ty won the final four HOH.

We saw him in the lead on Thursday’s show, after two of seven questions before they cut to credits with a cliffhanger, and he went on to win.

It didn’t seem like they’d done nominations yet, but they don’t matter at this stage anyway since the veto winner is the sole vote to evict. (Unless Ty wins yet another veto, then he’d decide who will cast that vote.)

Either way, pre-veto noms are moot and just a formality at this point, and ultimately a waste of time.

Ty had recorded his one-minute pitch to the jury that he’d bought in the Wendy’s points auction, and they hadn’t yet done the awards show.

The Daily opened with Ty and Claudia chit-chatting, and reminiscing about their first conversations in there, the date they had in first couple weeks, and their first kiss. I’ll spare you those details.

All four had gotten Wendy’s and they were enjoying that together in the HOH room during this Daily. Ty thanked the others for sharing it with him, and they in turn thanked him for sharing with them.

Big Brother USA’s Rachel Reilly had been there, but it wasn’t clear in what capacity.

She may have been in the Wendy’s window, but all four had met and chatted with her, and a couple of them hugged her.

Daniel is apparently a huge Rachel fan so much of this Daily was him talking about her.

Claudia said she’d recognized Rachel, but Daniel knew pretty much everything about her and her seasons, as well as her marriage and kids that had come out of her BB experience.

The rest of this drop was sitting around and waiting for something, but they didn’t know whether that would be the awards, or the veto comp.
