The 28-year-old self-described reiki master was unanimously voted out of the house March 6, making her the first to be evicted from the Big Brother house this season.
In a short interview with show's host, Gervais was surprised by the vote.
"I don't think the world was ready for the love revolution," she said. "My strategy was to go into the house not as myself. So I went in like an octopus and got blown out of the water."
After winning the Head of Household competition in the first episode, fellow houseguest Paul Jackson nominated Gervais and Andrew Gordon for eviction. Gordon went on to win the Power of Veto and took himself off the chopping block. Ika Wong found herself sitting in the hot seat with Gervais, who lost to a 11-0 vote.
"I did make big mistakes, but that's what I do in life," said Gervais during the Big Brother Canada Side Show. "I make mistakes and get back up."
In the popular show, houseguests are secluded for three months in a specially constructed home and are filmed continuously during their stay. During that time, they compete in various challenges to earn privileges and compete against each other for influence and control.
The show airs Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays on Slice.
