As we previously reported, Big Brother is moving to the north! It is about time and we’re honestly surprised it has taken that long, but our Canadian friends can now get a shot at being a houseguest and vying for the prize! We’ve got some new details that have emerged about Big Brother Cananda …. BUT FIRST, a few details about Big Brother 14 (US) for our Canadian friends. We know Canadians have had Big Brother After Dark in Canada for a few seasons now, but news broke today that BBAD will air 7 days a week on Slice from 2am – 5am. Now, we’re not sure if this will be LIVE or just delayed coverage that we’ll get on Showtime Too in America.
According to Shaw Media, casting for Big Brother Canada is set to begin in July … as in next month! Casting will last until January 2013. That’s a long time, if you ask us, but that will give Canadians a good shot at getting in the house! According to Shaw Media, promotions for casting will kick off on TV on July 12, the same day Big Brother 14 premieres. Online casting submissions kick off August 10 and a cross country casting tour will begin September 24.
The house will be set in Toronto and construction will kick off in September. There will be both indoor and outdoor areas of the house. Big Brother Canada kicks off February 18, 2013 and will air in a similar format to Big Brother US. There will be 3 one-hour installments per week. The season will last a total of 10 weeks. Two of the episodes will be pre-taped, while one will be LIVE each week, likely an eviction episode.
So what do you think our Canadian neighbors up north? Which among you will be submitting your casting tapes for your shot at Big Brother famedom?
