There’s so much happening inside the Big Brother Canada house today that the live feeds will be down for the remainder of the day and Big Brother Canada After Dark will not air tonight at 2am ET but will return to its regular timeslot at 2am ET / 11pm PT on March 17. Tune in to this Sunday night’s episode at 9pm ET/PT on Slice to find out what went down.
Tell us what you think? Do you think this is why the live feeds are being blocked? If is is because of cheating do you think Emmett should lose his HOH? We want to know what you think? Leave us your comments below :)
*** UPDATE ***
It is official the live feeds are down to investigate the cheating and to determine what action should be taken.
Show host Arisa Cox says the footage is being reviewed to see “if appropriate steps need to be taken.”
She says a verdict would likely come down Friday but that viewers won’t be told until Sunday’s episode on Slice.
“We take this stuff really, really seriously because the game only works if you do take everything seriously,” Cox said Friday of the controversy.
“It’s fun, it’s entertainment but for the people in the house it’s their reality and we have to respect that. So we are reviewing all of the evidence and if appropriate steps need to be taken they will be taken.”
“It did look like Emmett had been holding a ball or two,”
If the rules were broken “definitely some steps would be taken, rather dramatic steps potentially.”
“We don’t want to have anything hanging over anyone’s head so if Emmett needs to pay the price he’ll have to pay the price,” she said.
“I’m not suggesting he’ll be kicked out of the house or anything…. Emmett is a wonderful, wonderful houseguest in that people love him or they despise him. Which is fabulous for the show, of course. But there will be moves.”

Shortly after the HOH competition began the other house guests were warned about holding ball in their hands while running. In the last few seconds of the competition it is clear that Emmett was still breaking this rule.
Instances of the house guests cheating:
- This morning I created a post where Alec was out in the backyard with Andrew, Peter, Aj and Topaz discussing cheating or as he also calls it “bending the rules” to try and win.
- Last night after the competition Alec commented to Tom and Emmett about how he was told he could not put balls in another house guests holder. View the post here.
- The house guests also discussed how the rules in last nights competition were vague. View the post here.
- In addition to last nights competition there has also been other instances of the house guests cheating in the competitions. View the post here.
In this short video clip you can clearly see Emmett holding a ball in his left hand as he runs which was not allowed.
