Ryan is sure that himself and Allison are the target for the week. Chelsia is really hoping that it will be Matt and Natalie to go this week.

Adam is stoked to have been saved from the eviction block again. Allison tells Sheila that it’s a good thing to have not been nominated yet.

Natalie seems desperate to get close to Matt ever since he kissed her. He is adamant he’s not the guy for her but she seems to have other ideas.

Allison talks to Natalie about campaigning to save each other if they can win the PoV and then put Adam and Sheila up for eviction.

Playing in the veto competition with the HoH and the nominated couples are Sheila and Adam. James is chosen to be the host of the veto competition.

The competition, cupid is as cupid does, requires the women to be hoisted into the air where they need need to assemble a puzzle from pieces collected from the guys. Once they’re done, they need to shoot an arrow through a red heart. There are more pieces than necessary though.

As the guys run down the field to get the pieces, the cord that is attached to their partner pulls them up into the air. Allison and Ryan are the only team to really work well together.

Allison screams at Ryan to get the final piece but Natalie and Matt sneak ahead and take the win and get themselves off the block with the Power of Veto. It’s the first time this series that someone will have used the Veto.

Chelsia isn’t happy about the result.

Matt is playing to Joshuah’s gay side to win them over. With Ryan he’s trying to be his friend.

Matt talks to Allison who is crying about how bad she feels for Ryan who is being targetted because of her. Matt tells her to play to Joshuah’s gay side. He then tells her to stir up some trouble because that will work for her.

Adam and Sheila are at it again. Adam calls her a man hater. James is happy about their fighting because it will take the heat off him.

Matt goes up to see Sharon. Matt says he uses his charm on her and acts like he cares about her, but he says he doesn’t. He asks if it’s bad that he’s not into Natalie with her thong hanging out and her fake boobs. He then rolls over and kisses her. He’s stoked that she’s falling for his trap.

However, Sharon is aware of his game. Joshuah comes in and tells Matt that she’s prowling for him. She comes up and Matt decides that he’s going to leave. Natalie says he’s pushing her away because he gets too turned on by him.

After she leaves, Sharon tells Joshuah that Matt was playing her.

Matt talks to Natalie about his lack of feelings for her. She is incredibly frustrated sounded. They’re gonna be friends but Natalie is still hopeful that they could be soulmates. Delusional?

Allison talks to Joshuah and wonders why he wants to be in conflict with anyone in this game.

There is an envelope on the table with a note for the house guests. It says that if they hear a siren then they will need to gather in the lounge and be ready for instructions.

Everyone is stressing about how the siren will affect things in the house. Will it change the game? Affect the veto? They’re hoping it’s a good twist for the house.

Allison is wondering if it’s possibly bringing someone back into the house.

At the veto meeting, Matt and Natalie take themselves off the block and are replaced by Sheila and Adam.

Adam thinks it was a smart move to help get rid of Allison.

Canwest Broadcasting announced today that Global’s new Canadian miniseries “The Last Templar” from Muse Entertainment Enterprises has been picked-up by U.S. network NBC and will be simulcast with Global this December. The romantic adventure stars Oscar® winner Mira Sorvino (“Mighty Aphrodite”) and Canadian Victor Garber (“Alias”).

The four-hour-long exotic miniseries, based on Raymond Khoury’s best-selling novel, is being revised for the screen by multiple award-winning Canadian writer and producer Suzette Couture (“Million Dollar Babies”, “Road to Avonlea”) – her first production for Canwest. Shooting will begin on location in Montreal and Morocco next month.

“Global is thrilled to bring this incredible story to Canadian audiences – and delighted that Americans will also have the chance to see it on NBC,” said Barbara Williams, Executive Vice President, Content, Canwest Broadcasting. “This partnership with Muse Entertainment underscores Canwest’s commitment to work with the Canadian independent production community and create exciting, high quality and popular original programming for our audiences.”

Today’s announcement follows an exceptional year of successful original productions for Canwest. Global’s homegrown version of the hit international game show, “Deal or No Deal Canada” (Insight Productions) was seen by over 2 million viewers last winter – making it the most-watched Canadian series on any network in 2007. Since the fall, Canwest has also had tremendous ratings success with original series, “The Guard” (Halifax Film Company and Brightlight Pictures), “’da Kink in my Hair” (Barna Alper Productions), and the wildly popular “Are You Smarter Than A Canadian Fifth Grader?” (Insight Productions).

In “The Last Templar”, Mira Sorvino stars as Tess Chaykin, a Manhattan archaeologist who is drawn into a fast-paced mystery concerning the lost secrets of the medieval Templar Knights. Victor Garber co-stars as the Monsignor De Angelis.

“The Last Templar” opens with the fall of the Latin Kingdom’s reign in the Holy Land in Acre in 1291. As the burning city falls to the Sultan’s forces, a lone galley escapes out to sea, carrying a young Templar knight, Martin of Carmaux, his mentor Aimard of Villiers, and a mysterious chest entrusted to them by the Order’s dying Grand Master. But the ship never reaches its destination.

Later, in present-day New York, Chaykin (Sorvino) witnesses four masked horsemen, dressed as Templar Knights, who storm into the Metropolitan Museum, scattering Manhattan society gathered for the gala opening night of an exhibition of Vatican treasures. She watches in silent terror as the leader of the horsemen hones in on one piece in particular – a strange-geared device that he grabs as he disappears into Central Park.

As the horsemen’s dead bodies start turning up – and the importance of the stolen device becomes more apparent – Tess and FBI Agent Sean Reilly are drawn into the dark, hidden history of the crusading Knights, and of the last surviving Templars’ fateful journey from Acre. The pair is propelled into a treacherous adventure that takes them through the sewers of Manhattan, across continents to desolate Turkish highlands to a violent storm on the Mediterranean that shipwrecks them onto a remote Greek island – and into the very heart of an incredible Vatican secret.

Sorvino, who won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for her performance in “Mighty Aphrodite” in 1995, first attracted attention for her early work in such feature films as “Barcelona”, “Quiz Show” and “Beautiful Girls”. Sorvino’s television movies include “Norma Jean & Marilyn”, “The Great Gatsby” and “Human Trafficking.”

The six-time Emmy Award-nominated Victor Garber is best known for the role of Jack Bristow in the series “Alias”. His other credits have included “Ugly Betty” and “Will and Grace”. Film credits include “Titanic”, “Legally Blond” and “Tuck Everlasting”.

Muse Entertainment Enterprises is producing the miniseries. Paolo Barzman (“Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”, “Emotional Arithmetic”) will direct the script by Raymond Khoury and Suzette Couture. Gemini Award-winning Michael Prupas (“Human Trafficking”, “Durham County”) will executive produce the miniseries along with television impresario Robert Halmi, Sr. (“The Lion in Winter”, “Gulliver’s Travels”) and Robert Halmi, Jr. (“The Poseidon Adventure”, “The Christmas Card”). Emmy Award- nominated Irene Litinsky of Muse Entertainment (“Human Trafficking”, “The Wool Cap”) will serve as producer. RHI Entertainment and Powercorp will distribute the project worldwide.
