Jillian MacLaughlin Crowned Winner of Big Brother Canada

Gary Levy Comes in a Close Second and Takes Home $20,000 
Emmett Blois Becomes Final Member of( )The Jury 
TORONTO, May 2, 2013 /CNW/ - In tonight's dramatic season finale, Jillian 
MacLaughlin was named winner of Big Brother Canada, taking home the grand 
prize including $100,000, a brand new 2013 Chevrolet Trax and a $25,000 home 
shopping spree at The Brick. In the most shocking vote of the season Jillian 
beat out Gary Levy four votes to three. 
"I feel really excited and overwhelmed. I can't really believe it," said 
Jillian MacGlaughlin. "I just need to take a breath and let it settle in 100 
per cent." 
In the two hour finale the three finalists battled in a three part Head of 
Household (HOH) competition, testing them both physically and mentally. Having 
each won one of the first two competitions, Emmett Blois and Gary competed 
against each other in the final trivia challenge where Gary came out 
victorious. As the new and final HOH Gary held the power to instantly evict 
one of the houseguests and sent Emmett packing. 
After each of the seven jurors had the opportunity to ask questions of the two 
finalists, the jury cast their votes for Canada's first Big Brother Canada 
winner. In an intense jury vote Topaz Brady cast her vote for Jillian, a 
decision that proved to be an error and one she later came to regret. With 
only one vote between them, Jillian came out the victor over Gary. 
This season may be over but there's more Big Brother in store. Big Brother 15, 
launches June 26 at 9pm on Global.
