PostSubject: Big Brother Canada   September 24th 2012, 6:13 am

Vancouver Casting Call Blog

Premiere set for February 18, 2013.
Three shows a week and live feeds.
I guess the cutoff is 19 because that's the drinking age in all of our provinces except Alberta. (It's 18 in Alberta.)

Quote :
The contestants will also live in a state of the art wired big brother house that will capture the audio and every move the house guests make. The house guests will also compete in weekly challenges and vote each other out one by one. The Canadian edition is scheduled to have 3 weekly episodes; in addition, the viewing audience will also be able to watch via live streaming video of the house. The viewers will also have the opportunity to become involved with the show through social media to vote on decision that will affect the outcome of the house. You must be a Canadian citizen and at least 19 years old to apply. The Big Brother Canada premiere date has been tentatively set for February 18th, 2013.

Sounds like Will Kirby and Boogie may be at the Toronto Casting call.

That's the way to win hearts and minds! ( Not)

Interestingly, I just got though reading an article about a study. Canadians are second only to the Danes on the happiness scale.
They are happy with their lives.

Huh ... well, that sounds like he may be doing more than making an appearance at the Toronto casting call, no?
(The house is being built in Toronto. I wonder how they'll deal with the winter element? Little chance of bikinis I guess. Lol)

I thought of that too. I would assume they will have a very large hot tub and maybe a sauna too.

They should just be glad it's not being filmed in the US Midwest - it's certainly colder and more "great white North" than Canada!

They really should have filmed it in Halifax or Vancouver = both much milder winters than TO.

We have had very mild winters here in Toronto and it is predicted that we will have a dry, mild one agin this year. We don't get nearly as much snow as other provinces. Last year I think we had to shovel only two or three times the whole season I remember because it wasn't even enough for my neighbour to use his new snow blower LOL an inch or two at most and it was gone within hours or next day.

I wonder where in TO the house will be?

I don't know Sydney but Global TV carries Big Brother here in Canada. Do you think they might be building it on the Global Studios lot on Barber Greene Road?
CTV also has a big studio lot at Highway 401 and McCowan Road.
(I'm just guessing that the house would be built on a TV studio lot.)
Any Toronto residents have any ideas?

I drive by the CTV on off the 401 everyday not allot of room there from what I can see unless they give up the parking lot. Will have to take a closer look at that location. Very busy area.

Is Slice affiliated with Global somehow? Since the show is going to be on Slice, I can't see them using a Global (or CTV) lot unless they're somehow affiliated.

Good point Bryanna ... they're both owned by Shaw Media so maybe that's the connection?
I guess we'll have to wait and find out in February where the house is. Too bad ... I'd like a sneak peek!

When I saw a picture with one of the people that tried out in Vancouver with Hayden in the background was the Shaw name on the backdraft so I guess that must be the connection!!!

Off topic:

This article cracked me up... those crazy Canadians..

There are all sorts of jokes you could make... like "that's a gouda story"


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-19751695

Canada cheese-smuggling ring busted

A Canadian police officer was among three people charged as the country's authorities announced they had busted a major cheese-smuggling ring.

A joint US-Canadian investigation found C$200,000 (125,600) of cheese and other products were illicitly brought over the border into southern Ontario.

The smugglers sold large quantities of cheese, which is cheaper in the US, to restaurants, it is alleged.

The other two men charged were civilians, one a former police officer.

Yup ... that's what we smuggle over the border ... cheese and cigarettes!

I can't believe the grand prize for BB Canada is only $100,000. Sorry, but no way would I give up 3 months and possibly my job for a chance at that. That is ridiculous.

That is chump change for this type of show. I know we get to keep 100% of it (not taxed) but still...$100K?? Really?

Mike will be on the Global Morning Show this morning.
I'll watch for him and let you know if he says anything that we don't already know about BB Canada. (I'm still curious about where the house is being built.)

Mike was on with a producer from BB. They opened the segment with a clip showing Boogie in the HOH room pitching a 6 person alliance (He and Frank, Shane and Brit & Dan and Danielle) to Danielle and pushing for a Janelle blindside to a gleeful looking Danielle. (The "gleeful" part is my subjective opinion. Lol)
He talked about his good moves and his bad moves in the house ... said there's a lot of down time which leads to a lot of paranoia and poor decisions and HGs learn how to deal with the swings from complete boredom to frenetic activity or get themselves in trouble.
They stayed that the Toronto casting call was Sunday at the Royal York and that the show would start airing in February.
Mike was definitely in "charming" mode, which he does very well.

Interesting if she gets on and the other HG's know about her connection to Bieber she will have a huge target on her.

I don't know Jack'd but the press releases have mentioned that BB Canada will have live feeds and since BB US deals with Superpass, that seems like a logical fit.
Does it look to you guys as if the house is being built inside a huge building?

Oh good, I sure hope so. I'm going to be having withdrawals next week when BBAUS ends. Yes it does look like it's inside a building, that's strange. Hard to believe that it will be finished and ready to go live in February.
