Like the majestic oceans around the world, there is an ebb and flow that occurs in a typical season of Big Brother. Each season, it usually doesn't take long for the house to split into two separate factions with a few stragglers floating along in the middle. However, this first season of Big Brother Canada is one of the rare instances where things broke a bit differently.
After two weeks of Big Brother Canada we're starting to see a much clearer picture of what the rest of the season is going to look like. In addition to discovering that Canadians have a national preoccupation with protein powder and glitter, I'm learning that there seems to be a great deal of societal pressure to be part of a couple as soon as humanly possible.
We're so nice, aren't we? At least, that's how the stereotype goes. Canadians work extra hard to be kind to others and we always say "sorry," even if it's not our fault. So how well does a devious, underhanded show like Big Brother fare in Canada? Can Big Brother Canada match the underhandedness and devious behaviour we've witnessed on the U.S. version?
