TORONTO, February 23, 2022 – Come on down and spin that wheel Canada, as an all-new crop of houseguests are ready to play the ultimate game of games! Just revealed in the Celebrity Big Brother finale, Global announces 16 Canadians joining Season 10 of Big Brother Canada. Premiering Wednesday, March 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT, this season’s houseguests will compete in retro and modern-inspired games all combined together to create #BBCAN10, the greatest game show on earth.

This season, the houseguests must keep their eyes on the prize and put their BBCAN knowledge to the test as they compete in complex trivia games, unlock mystery doors, and take on gruelling challenges all season long. There will be undeniable tension, inevitable drama, and possible showmances in the BBCAN house. However, only one lucky houseguest who plays their cards right will triumph as the last contestant standing in the final showdown to become the winner of Big Brother Canada 10!

#BBCAN10 is ready to level up with a new diverse group of houseguests from all kinds of life experiences, eager to take a shot at the biggest social experiment on TV. This season’s houseguests include a charming firefighter from Québec, a passionate theatre director from Ontario, a bubbly master’s student from British Columbia, and more.

Leading up to the big premiere, ET Canada unveils this season’s extravagant game show theme in ET Canada’s 30-minute special, Big Brother Canada All Access. Airing on a new day and time, Wednesday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT, the #BBCAN10 preview special is co-hosted by ET Canada’s Sangita Patel and Season 9 winner Tychon Carter-Newman. The special features an exclusive first look of the new #BBCAN10 house led by Arisa Cox, a sneak peek of what’s to come this season, and a one-on-one interview with Tychon about life after his historic Big Brother Canada win.

But first… let’s meet the 16 houseguests entering the #BBCAN10 house, vying for the grand prize of $100,000 cash, $10,000 for a brand new wardrobe courtesy of WINNERS, and an unforgettable travel experience from Expedia.
