The Secret Power of Veto was a hidden Power of Veto that impacted the game in Big Brother Canada 2, an anonymous variation of the Double Power of Veto. It was found by Allison White in the War Room. It also appeared in Big Brother Canada 10.

It also appeared as the Black Hole Power of Veto during Big Brother Canada 5, however the winner remained anonymous even after it was used. A normalized version of this appeared in Big Brother Canada 11, being a part of "Whodunnit Week" as the Invisible Power of Veto.


After Andrew Gordon's eviction in Week 5 of Big Brother Canada 2, a new Twistos Twist was unleashed inside of the house. It stated that when the fan meter reached six million, the Secret POV would be unleashed. Then within a few days, the meter hit six million inside of the house and the clues were revealed.

Retrieved From Global
The Secret Power of Veto gives the holder, William, the power to save anyone from the block over two Power of Veto ceremonies. The ceremonies where this power is active are Wednesday April 19th & 26th. This Power of Veto is a SECRET and Big Brother will never reveal who used it. However, William is free to tell people about this secret power once it has been played or should he choose not to use it. This Veto does not give him the power to name the replacement nominee, nor does it give him safety from being named a replacement himself.

Should the secret power of veto be played by William, Big Brother will deliver the news to the houseguests at the end of the Veto ceremony.

The regular Veto is still in play and regular Veto rules apply, this includes William and should he win the Veto he will have two Vetos.

Allison Finds War Room

Once the Secret POV was unleashed, various clues was released among the inside of the Big Brother Canada 2 house in Week 6. Allison White was the first to discover the new flower on the second floor and found a clue to the Veto. It then led her to the pool and eventually along more clues till it lead her to the wall beside the stairs.

Once Allison pulled the correct object on the door the door opened to the secret room, aka the War Room, where she spent a week in before she was let inside of the house. She entered and Arisa Cox came up on the screens inside of the room, and gave Allison the final clue. It was easy for her to find it and Allison received the Secret Power of Veto.

In Week 6, Big Brother gave the houseguests the task to clean the house on Day 37. While replacing the bag of the dustbin in the pantry, William Laprise Desbiens found a clue at the bottom of the bin. After following a set of instructions, he made his way to the backyard and pryed open a secret door that led him through a dark passage. At the end of this passage, William found the Black Hole Power of Veto.

Allison Finds Secret POV

In Week 7 of Big Brother Canada 2, Jon Pardy won the Head of Household and nominated both Sabrina Abbate and Rachelle Diamond for eviction. Jon eventually won the Normal Power of Veto that same week and removed Rachelle from the block and back-doored Arlie Shaban. Then just as Jon was adjourning the Veto Meeting, Allison rose and to everyone's shock and pulled out the Secret Power of Veto. She attempted a power move and used the Veto on Sabrina and Jon was forced to nominated his best friend Adel Elseri.

At the eviction, she went back on her word and decided to go with the house and vote out Arlie with a unanimous 5-0 vote sending him to Jury. The houseguests immediately competed in the Head of Household competition, as Neda Kalantar was declared the winner. Neda was immediately sequestered in the War Room for the upcoming Instant Eviction. Neda decided to nominate Allison because she deemed her untrustworthy, because of her Secret Power of Veto. Allison was then instantly evicted by a unanimous vote sending her to Jury after just less than a day of her sucessful back-door of Arlie.

After William won the regular veto during Week 7 of Big Brother Canada 5, he did not want to upset Ika Wong and Demetres Giannistsos by changing their nominees, so he did not use it. However, he decided to take advantage of the Black Hole Veto's anonymity and chose to use it on Kevin Martin, causing Karen Singbeil to go up in his place against Bruno Ielo. No one ever discovered William used the Power for the rest of his time in the game. Bruno ended up getting evicted by a vote of 5-1, with William voting to evict him.

In Big Brother Canada 10, the Secret POV was found by Jacey-Lynne Graham, this Veto could have been used to go with her showmance, Gino Giannopoulos' plan to backdoor Marty Frenette, but after Kevin Jacobs and Haleena Gill convinced the house to not go through with this plan, Jacey-Lynne chose not to reveal she had the Secret POV, and it was discarded, leaving Moose Bendago and Summer Sayles on the block, with Moose being evicted by a 6-0 vote.

In Big Brother Canada 11, the week proceeded as normal, with only one POV being earned through the competition. However, as part of "Whodunnit Week", both the HOH and POV competition winners would be kept a secret. Daniel Clarke went onto win the Power of Veto, and ended up using it on Ty McDonald, forcing Invisible HOH Santina Carlson to secretly nominate Claudia Campbell in his place next to Dan Szabo, who was then evicted 8 to 0.


  • The Secret Power of Veto has been used on the eventual winner of the season twice, in seasons 5 and 11.
