Pardy on, Newfoundland.

No one can say that Jon Pardy of Clarenville, Nfld., didn't earn his victory in the second season of Big Brother Canada, which wrapped up Thursday on Slice. Even the people Jon gutted still voted for him.

On the final evening, Jon not only won the most important Head of Household competition of the year, but he had the fortitude to stab his longtime alliance partner – Neda Kalantar of Vancouver – before she got the chance to stab him. That was the gasp moment.

So full credit to Jon, the nice guy who was tough enough after all. He earns $100,000 for his efforts.

“I don't really know what's going on, but wake up Canada, wake up!” an excited Jon bellowed.

The jury vote this season was a virtual landslide, with Jon defeating runner-up Sabrina Abbate of Laval, Que., who gets $20,000. There were seven votes cast, and by the fifth vote that was revealed, it already was over, with Jon ahead 4-1. Six of the votes were cast by the most recently evicted houseguests, with the seventh vote going to viewers of the show in a national online vote.

The final, crucial head-of-household competition was a three-parter, with a playoff-advance format.

Jon won the Bailout event between the three houseguests, so that punched him ahead to the HoH “final,” and pitted Neda and Sabrina against each other in an elimination semi-final called Walk the Plank. Neda won, meaning she faced her supposed alliance cohort Jon in the ultimate HoH showdown.

Faced with a series of questions about evicted houseguests/jury members, Jon prevailed. That meant Jon got to choose who went with him to final two: His longtime alliance partner Neda, or his new covering-his-bases alliance partner Sabrina, against whom he was certain he had a better chance.

I wondered if Jon had it in him to turn his back on Neda. But he did.

“I was planning on doing the same thing to him,” Neda admitted. “I'm really, really shocked, though.”

So Jon chose Sabrina as the person he felt most comfortable facing in final two.

As it turned out, he chose wisely.

Big Brother Canada went to the Jon.
