Big Brother Canada Season 6 Returns to Global in 2018
Toronto, Canada – Calling all #BBCAN fans! Big Brother Canada returns in 2018 and Global is gearing up for another outrageous season as casting for Season 6 is now underway. Potential future houseguests are invited to apply online at BigBrotherCanada.ca for their chance to compete in television’s best social experiment. The online submission deadline is Saturday, October 28.
Whether it’s a strong social game or fierce competition skills, Canadians who think they have what it takes to battle it out in the Big Brother Canada house can apply online with a photo and a short video stating why they are the ideal houseguest. Applicants must be 19 years of age by February 1, 2018. Additional information, including a complete list of rules and eligibility can be found at BigBrotherCanada.ca.
Airing exclusively on Global in the 2018 broadcast season, Big Brother Canada plucks a group of hand-picked strangers from their homes, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.
Season 19 of Big Brother is currently airing Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. Fans can catch up on all the houseguest drama following the broadcast the next day on GlobalTV.com and Global Go.
