Vancouverites Gather For Big Brother Canada Auditions

Big Brother fans gathered this Sunday and took part in an hours-long lineup to get their chance to star in the first ever Big Brother Canada, set to air in February!

Over 1,000 Vancouverites gathered outside Canada Place, as Big Brother Canada crews travel across the country this week to pick out contestants for the popular reality TV series!

What is Big Brother? Big Brother is a reality series imported by the U.K. and U.S. where fourteen people are selected to live in the Big Brother house, which is a house located within a TV studio. Houseguests are under 24-hour surveillance while competing in weekly challenges to be the last house guest standing, who will ultimately win $500,000 dollars!

Big Brother Canada asked those who auditioned only a few simple questions, such as:

What’s your strategy?

Would you be in a “showmance?”

Casting agents have specified they want Big Brother Canada to have an exclusive Canadian feel over the U.S. version. It’s all about personality, no talent required!

Hopeful contestants were also surprised to see Hayden Moss at the auditions, better known as the winner of Big Brother Season 12! Moss lets those auditioning know that it’s a lot harder than it seems, and to not hang onto fame once the show ends.
