Stay tuned for additional announcements about Season 10 of Big Brother Canada including this season’s houseguests and the grand prize details.
Big Brother Canada hand-picks a group of strangers from all walks of life, 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.
Ahead of this season’s ultimate showdown, fans can stream the biggest moments from Season 9 on STACKTV, GlobalTV.com and the Global TV App, and stay up to date on all things #BBCAN10 on BigBrotherCanada.ca.
