‘Big Brother Canada’ houseguest Anick Gervais ‘blindsided’ by eviction


TORONTO — Anick Gervais said Friday that being first to step off a block of ice during this week’s Big Brother Canada challenge had a chilling effect on her competitors.

Gervais’ strategic move resulted in her being voted the first one out by all of her fellow houseguests.

Stepping off the ice first, she said, was a way of telling the others “don’t worry about me, I’m not going to be a competitor.”

Appearing on Global’s The Morning Show, Gervais said she was surprised and “completely blindsided” by her eviction.

“I was just being myself and that slapped me in the face,” she said.

Paul Jackson nominated Gervais and Andrew Gordon, but Gordon won the Power of Veto.

Gervais, 28, said she doesn’t regret her Big Brother Canada experience, as short as it was, but admitted it wasn’t easy.

“You have no idea how stressful the game is until you get in there,” said Gervais, from Hanmer, Ont. “I had no idea it was going to be that difficult.”

She said she would welcome a chance to return to the house.

Gervais added it’s too soon to tell who will emerge a winner.

“I hope it’s someone with a good heart.”
