Kevin Martin Wins Big Brother

Team PokerStars Online Pro wins Canada’s reality TV series at the second time of asking.

Kevin Martin

Kevin Martin has won Big Brother Canada at his second attempt after being crowned the most popular choice in last Thursday’s final. He collects $100,000 CAD for his win, far more than he has made at the tables, and also takes home a $30,000 gift card and a brand new 2017 Toyota ’86.

The Team PokerStars Online Pro, who plays under the alias ‘GarlicXToast’, entered the house back in 2015 when he was controversially ejected through a surprise eviction without receiving a single vote against him.

This time however there was no stopping him, even after he risked the wrath of Big Brother executives for continually mentioning brand names, including his sponsor, PokerStars, about whom he was heard to say, “can someone tweet PokerStars and tell them that they are the best sponsor in the world?" The endorsement worked though as yesterday the poker site staged a special Kevin Martin’s Freeroll worth $1,000 in prize money. 

Back in time for last few SCOOP events

His success also means that his Twitch stream, already regularly bringing in 50,000 plus viewers, might well receive boosted numbers this week which, with the last remaining SCOOP events still to play, is well timed.

In 2015, the same year as Martin’s first stay in the house, the US version of Big Brother saw Vanessa Rousso come third and she has since been voted the greatest Big Brother contestant of all time.

    It never brings in 50k viewers. Are you mad? Even the best poker streamers sturggle to bring in 10k.

    Also he doesn't play under the pseudonym "GarlicXToast" and hasn't done for a while. This a poker strategy site in which people read the articles to learn things (Granted this article isn't strategy) so I'd like to see the articles hold some truths. This is ludicrously lazy journalism.
