‘Big Brother Canada’ Star Jamar Lee Removed From House After ‘Breach Of House Rules’
Now that's two non-elimination evictions! ET Canada just broke the news that Jamar Lee from Big Brother Canada has been removed from the house for the remainder of season eight. The decision comes after fellow houseguest, Kyle Rozendal, claimed that he "felt threatened" by a hand gesture directed at him by Lee.
This season of BBCAN has been filled with drama from the get-go. During week one, houseguest Nico Vera chose to self-eliminate before the eviction could even take place, and during week two, the house worked together to backdoor BC native Micheal Stubley.
The drama continues this week, as Insight Productions revealed their decision to ET Canada. “Insight Productions has made the difficult decision to remove a houseguest as a result of behaviour which occurred that was a breach of the Big Brother house rules,” they said in a statement.
“We at Global and Insight Productions take the rules of this competition seriously and with respect to all houseguests past and present, the confines of the Big Brother house can be trying, sometimes leading to a clash of opinions and emotions in an isolated environment.”
“We handle these situations with care and caution, protecting the well-being of our houseguests and ensuring the integrity of this long-standing production.”

Lee also gave a statement regarding his removal. “I take full responsibility for my actions – I lost my cool and that’s not okay. I’ve always stood behind what I believe in and I’m sorry if I let people down.”
“I want to thank everyone for their love and support, it really means a lot… this isn’t the last of me! You feel me?” the Ajax, Ontario-born star added.
Viewers on Twitter have been showing support for Lee by using #IStandWithJamar.
According to ET Canada, Jamar's exit will be addressed on Wednesday night's episode of Big Brother Canada.
