Chances are, if you're a "Big Brother" fan, you've been watching the U.S. version wondering when "Big Brother Canada" is returning to TV. Perhaps you're even wondering how you can personally apply. Well, now's your turn.
Following a record-breaking sophomore season, "Big Brother Canada" is gearing up for its Season 3 national casting call, airing on Global in 2015. Canadians 19 years of age and older can apply online beginning today (August 21), and in person this fall at open casting calls across Canada. The online submission deadline is November 24, 2014.
“Our Canadian edition of the beloved 'Big Brother' franchise has quickly become one of the most acclaimed productions in the world and with its move to Global this year, 'Big Brother Canada's third installment is looking for the biggest, boldest personalities in Canada to entertain our audiences three nights a week on-air and 24/7 online,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media.
"Big Brother Canada" is looking for Canucks from all corners of the country; from superfans and strategists to drama kings and queens. "Big Brother Canada"s secret recipe for raucous reality is in its eclectic crew of houseguests. They boldly compete for a grand cash prize through a gruelling series of weekly challenges that test both brain and brawn.
“''Big Brother Canada' Season 2 was a blockbuster for the franchise with a perfect storm of personalities pitted against each other inside the Big Brother house and cut off from the outside world,” said John Brunton, Chairman & CEO, Insight Production Company Ltd. “The bar has once again been raised and we know our 'BBCAN' superfans will bring their A-Game to the casting calls this year.”
Those interested in applying can either apply online with a short video about why they would make the perfect houseguest, or in person at open casting calls throughout October and November.
