Four of the Fifteen Big Brother Canada Cast Members from Atlantic Canada
Toronto, ON – February 20, 2013 - After months of searching and more than a year of planning, the Big Brother Canada houseguests have been named. These 15 Canadians will live together, eat together, play together — and ultimately, battle it out for the grand prize. The series begins Wednesday February 27th at 9pm.
“We were so overwhelmed by the number of outstanding applicants for Big Brother Canada that narrowing it down to 15 houseguests was no easy task,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media. “You can be sure that bringing together this diverse cast of characters from all across the country is going to make for some interesting storylines and twists along the way and we can’t wait to see how the season plays out.”
“Each of the 15 selected houseguests are bringing something special to the show whether that be through a strong personality, wacky sense of humour or competitive nature,” said John Brunton, Chairman & CEO, Insight Production Company Ltd. “With this many big personalities living together under one roof, all with their eyes on the prize, things are bound to get a little crazy!”

These 15 houseguests are about to move into the Big Brother Canada house, outfitted wall to wall with cameras and microphones to capture their every move. Hosted by Arisa Cox, Big Brother Canada will pit houseguests against one another in a series of challenges to test their passion, dedication and skills. Week to week they’ll vote each other out until one claims victory and takes home the grand prize.
