It will do .

True to the U.S. format, Big Brother Canada will hand pick a diverse group of competitive contestants in the Big Brother house outfitted wall to wall with cameras and microphones to capture the house guestsí every move. Week to week the house guests compete in a series of challenges and vote each other out until one claims victory and takes home the grand prize. Fans of Big Brother can connect with the series outside of the 3-day-a-week broadcast through a myriad of digital extensions including live streaming and social engagement opportunities that allow online users to impact decisions in the house.

This is fantastic news

I wonder if a Canadian proxy will be needed to get their live feed.......

I also wonder whether Canadian viewers will get BB fatigue, since they say they are still going to simulcast BBUSA before their own version.

I don't think it's going to follow the US format exactly, though the 3 shows a week and competitiveness aspects of the quote do suggest it. I'm expecting it to be different to the US version because the Canadian viewers are already watching the US version - they will want it to stand out.

Surely the fact it's people from their own country will be enough to make it stand out a bit, but yeah there probably will be some differences.

Ooh, I didn't notice this thread! I'm looking forward to this! I'm more than happy to give it a try, especially if it's on in February when there's nothing really on!

There was an ad for BB Canada on the Global stream of the BBUS launch show.

Unless they do a Channel 5 and promise Live Feed and then not deliver i'm going to give the show a shot.. I miss the US version through the year so this should lessen that!

I'm pretty sure that there will be live feed. Slice is currently airing BB:AD, and I don't see why there won't be live feed.

Two seasons of BB for the foreseeable future with the US and Canada versions I really hope it's not a let down, I want it to follow the US format exactly.

It's probably going to follow the US format because most Canadians have likely never seen the international format. I personally would like a the public to have some say in what goes on in the house, but not to entirely choose who stays, who goes, and ultimately who wins.

23 weeks until this starts!

Construction on the house is supposed to be happening this month.

Also the lower age restriction is 19, compared to 21 for the USA.

Also it's approximately 75 days long, the same as recent US versions. Also applicants will live with approximately 'a dozen' strangers.. so around 13 people in all.

Prize fund $100k (Canadian dollars, of course!) subject to change.

Applicants don't have to be an actual Canadian citizen, just a permanent resident.. I think that differs from the US

http://bigbrothercanadacasting.ca/Eligibility

Canada: February - Late April/Early May
US: June - September

The house will be located in Toronto, which is 5 hours behind UK time.. better for UK live feeders.
