Here's How "Big Brother" Houseguests Reacted To The Show Ending

So many tears.

Big Brother Canada wrapped up its eighth season last night after only 11 episodes.

Seasons generally have 20-plus episodes.

The houseguests entered the house in late February, before the coronavirus outbreak was declared a full pandemic.

And a lot happened in the first few weeks, including two expulsions and one self-eviction.

All of these incidents happened to be unrelated to COVID-19.

But then everything got real when the houseguests were told about what was happening in the outside world.

Generally, houseguests are isolated for the duration of the show and never know what's happening in the outside world. The announcement of this news deviated from the format of the show.

At first the houseguests seemed to keep calm, carry on, and continue playing the game.

But once the premier of Ontario ordered all nonessential workplaces closed to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Big Brother Canada season had to come to an end. Watch the houseguests' reaction:

They took the news hard. And full disclosure: I've worked on Big Brother Canada, and I, too, was devastated.

And since there was no winner of the season, they decided to give the prize money to charity, which fans seemed to dig.

Great move by #BBCAN8, donating the prize money to the COVID-19 response fund.

To hear what they did with the prize money was amazing, bravo #bbcan8 πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

Definitely the right call to donate the prize money to charity. Glad it’s going to a good cause #BBCAN8

Until next time, Big Brother!
