The day after Sarah Hanlon was named the winner of Big Brother Canada 3, I headed to the backyard to do extended interviews with the entire cast. I caught up with Jordan Parhar to discuss his time in the house. I told JP that he had the support of most of the online Big Brother community and asked him what led to his decision to put himself up on the block during Zach’s HOH. I quizzed the West Coaster about whether it was his desire to play to the camera that ultimately led to his eviction and if he regretted tryng to make a ‘Dan’s Funeral’ type of legendary game move at the expense of his own game. Jordan and I discussed his experience in the house in general and how it looked like he was on a never-ending rollercoaster ride with him getting evicted on his best friend’s HOH to getting into a showmance only to have his in-game girlfriend immediately evict him when she returned to the house (and break his heart again when they were both in the jury house), to then getting booted from the jury. We also discussed JP’s jury vote for Sarah to win as I initially believed that, as a superfan, Jordan would be able to recognize the subtleties of Godfrey’s game. JP elaborated on the brilliance of Sarah’s game and how the winner managed to establish solid social relationships with all of the houseguests while also being able to save herself whenever she was in danger. JP pointed out that Sarah’s back was against the wall from the beginning of the game when she was in the HOH room during the girl alliance conversation that Kevin overheard. After saving herself from that debacle, Sarah also managed to survive in the game even when her closest allies (Naeha and Johnny) were both evicted before the jury started. JP also cited the fact that Bruno was gunning after Sarah from the opening stages of the game and that the hemployee still managed to avoid being targeted. Check out the video above!
