WOW! After ten weeks, Big Brother Canada ends not with a bang or a whimper but a collective gasp of "WTF?" On a night which should have culminated with Gary screeching through a storm of glitter and confetti, we instead were left with one of reality TV's most bizarre moments.

To this point, the story of Big Brother Canada has been the story of Jillian and Emmett cutting through the competition like a hot knife through slop. A great deal of credit needs to be given to this Big Brother power couple for such a dominant game.

It's certainly been a tumultuous couple of weeks in the inaugural Big Brother Canada season. One by one, all of the pairs in the house have been targeted and broken up with two notable exceptions: Emmett and Jillian and Alec and Peter.

The first month of Big Brother Canada has been every bit as good as its American counterpart ... that is, up until this week. Don't get me wrong, there were a couple of high points, but when I'm watching three hours of any given television show, I expect something to actually happen.

Anyone who's become mildly obsessed with the guilty pleasure that is Big Brother Canada knows that being a fan of the show comes with certain risks, none of which is more annoying than how easy it is to hear spoilers week in and week out.

Like the majestic oceans around the world, there is an ebb and flow that occurs in a typical season of Big Brother. Each season, it usually doesn't take long for the house to split into two separate factions with a few stragglers floating along in the middle.

After two weeks of Big Brother Canada we're starting to see a much clearer picture of what the rest of the season is going to look like. In addition to discovering that Canadians have a national preoccupation with protein powder and glitter, I'm learning that there seems to be a great deal of societal pressure to be part of a couple as soon as humanly possible.

'Big Brother Canada': Does It Fit With The Franchise?

We're so nice, aren't we? At least, that's how the stereotype goes. Canadians work extra hard to be kind to others and we always say "sorry," even if it's not our fault. So how well does a devious, underhanded show like Big Brother fare in Canada? Can Big Brother Canada match the underhandedness and devious behaviour we've witnessed on the U.S. version?
