Big Brother Canada: Big Brother Franchise Headed North


Big news! The infamous Big Brother TV franchise is headed to Canada.

Just like its U.S. sibling, Big Brother Canada will feature a group of diverse castmates living under the constant watch of TV cameras. Chairman and CEO of Insight Productions and Executive Producer of Big Brother Canada, John Brunton, said the franchise presents an opportunity to make serious waves north of the border.

“Like Captain Kirk said, 'Boldly go where no man has gone before.' We’ve never produced a show that shoots 24/7. Casting this program is going to be a blast.”

Casting details have yet to be announced, but Shaw Media announced the series will air in the 2012/2013 season on Slice.

Let's just hope Big Brother Canada has better luck than Lake Shore.

Canadian Big Brother coming to Slice

Canada is getting its own version of Big Brother.

The venerable reality series began in the Netherlands in 1999 and has since spread to 87 countries.

Shaw Media says Big Brother Canada will air during the 2012/13 season on Slice.

Shaw is teaming up with Big Brother creator Endemol and Canada’s Insight Productions to bring the program to air.

“Like Captain Kirk said, ‘Boldly go where no man has gone before,’” said Insight CEO John Brunton. “We’ve never produced a show that shoots 24/7. Casting this program is going to be a blast.”

As with the U.S. version, hand-picked “house guests” will live in a home outfitted with wall to wall cameras and microphones to capture their every move.

Guests will compete in weekly challenges and vote each other out until one claims victory and takes home the grand prize.

Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week, like its American counterpart, which airs on Global TV.

It drew an audience of 1.5 million to its season finale last September, according to Global. That’s less than other U.S. reality imports like Survivor and The Amazing Race.

In the States, the finale was watched by fewer than 8 million viewers.

Season 14 of Big Brother U.S. starts on Global July 12.

This is at least the fifth U.S. reality TV format to get a Canadian makeover in recent years.

Canadian Idol was a ratings hit for CTV before it went on indefinite hiatus in 2008. So You Think You Can Dance Canada also aired on CTV but was cancelled last fall.

Canada’s Got Talent just wrapped its first season on Citytv and The Bachelor Canada comes to Citytv this fall.

Endemol's 'Big Brother' Format Headed to Canada

Shaw Media inked a deal with the format giant to air a local Canadian version from indie producer Insight Productions.
Big Brother Canada will air on Slice, Shaw Media’s lifestyle channel, and follows the Canadian broadcaster airing the U.S. version of Big Brother for 13 seasons.

“After more than a decade, Big Brother is still a ratings winner in the major territories across the globe,” David Goldberg, chairman of Endemol North America, said as he looked ahead to the first-ever Canadian edition.

Following the American forat, Big Brother Canada will feature competing Canadian guests in the Big Brother house.
No word on casting for the Canuck version.

Shaw Media will start airing the 14th season of Big Brother on its Global Television network from July 12.

TORONTO, May 30, 2012 – Shaw Media has sealed a deal with Endemol to produce the first ever Canadian instalment of the wildly popular international sensation Big Brother and has teamed up with Canadian production heavyweight Insight Productions on the production of the series. The inaugural season of Big Brother Canada will air during the 2012/13 broadcast season exclusively on Slice™.

The hugely successful Big Brother franchise aired 25 formats in 87 countries in 2011 and continues to roll out in new territories. Big Brother U.S. has consistently been a top ranked staple on Global’s schedule for 13 seasons.

“Big Brother has become a worldwide phenomenon and we’re proud to team up withEndemol and Insight Productions to launch the fan favourite format in Canada,” said Barbara Williams, Senior Vice President of Content, Shaw Media. “The production of this format is hugely exciting as it takes us into unchartered territory, filming live around-the-clock and enabling fans to interact with the series in ways we’ve never explored before.”

“After more than a decade, Big Brother is still a ratings winner in the major territories across the globe,” said David Goldberg, Chairman, Endemol North America.  “Global has been a great partner from the beginning, when they brought the U.S. version of Big Brother to Canada 13 seasons ago. We look forward to seeing this proven format continue its home-grown success with the first-ever Canadian edition of the series,” he continued. 

“All of us at Insight are so excited about Big Brother Canada,” said John Brunton, Chairman & CEO of Insight Productions and Executive Producer of Big Brother Canada. “Like Captain Kirk said - Boldly go where no man has gone before - we’ve never produced a show that shoots 24/7.  Casting this program is going to be a blast.”

True to the U.S. format, Big Brother Canada will hand pick a diverse group of competitive contestants in the Big Brother house outfitted wall to wall with cameras and microphones to capture the house guests’ every move. Week to week the house guests compete in a series of challenges and vote each other out until one claims victory and takes home the grand prize. Fans of Big Brother can connect with the series outside of the 3-day-a-week broadcast through a myriad of digital extensions including live streaming and social engagement opportunities that allow online users to impact decisions in the house.

Details on casting and production will be revealed at a later date.

Upon recently renewing its simulcast deal for Big Brother U.S. Shaw Media will bring the highly anticipated 14th season of Big Brother to on Global July 12.

Hi all

No, I won't be auditioning, especially after having the feeds for the first time last year and not wanting the world to ever see my 'bits'  :res:

Hope to have the feeds again this year, if we don't go on strike.  This could be a stressful summer.

A big update for our Canadian Followers...

Well it appears BB Canada will follow the US Concept more so than the traditional international format.

Of course as the bottom note mentions, this is all subject to change.

Also, interesting of note they used pics from the US Version of the Game

From the source...

Big Brother Format Based on Internationally Successful Property

The Rules:
Houseguests are sequestered in the Big Brother House with no contact with outside world. Each week, the houseguests take part in several challenges that determine who wins food, luxuries, and power in the house. The winner of the weekly Head of Household competition is immune from nominations and must nominate two fellow houseguests for eviction.

Power of Veto and Eviction:
The winner of the Power of Veto competition wins the right to save one of the nominated houseguests from eviction. If the Veto winner exercises the power, the Head of Household must then nominate another houseguest for eviction. On eviction night, all houseguests except for the Head of Household and the two nominees vote to evict one of the two nominees. This compulsory vote is conducted in the privacy of the Diary Room. The nominee with the greater number of votes is evicted from the house.

Winning Big Brother:
The final seven houseguests evicted during the season vote for the winner on the season finale. These "Jury Members“ are sequestered in a separate house and will not be allowed to watch the show except for competitions and ceremonies that include all of the remaining houseguests.

Note: All ideas, dates, client opportunities and concepts put forth are subject to change and subject to approvals from Insight Productions, Endemol, Shaw Media and legal. Production fees may apply. Digital opportunities require additional spend. Ideas are strictly meant as conversation starters.

Also from the Source BB Canada's Possible Timetable:

If Superpass carries  Big Brother Canada:

1. Do we here at RFF want to update it  in the same manor we cover BBUSA

2. IF the answer is  in a majority  with YES, WHO will help cover the updating,

Nothing is confirmed with Superpass but i know they are interested.

IF they do not carry the live feeds like we have here for the US version, we will be able to cover the live stream via Global when they air it.

3. I will only commit to this if i know I have enough people to help out.

I do have several friends that are auditioning for the show and have sent in tapes.

I'd like to go to my meeting next week with Superpass with some sort of numbers so please post  if you  are interested or not

please know this is not a commitment  I  just  want to know if  it's worth the  time invested  on my end and for RFF

Post by: ugot2bekidinmeny on September 22, 2012, 02:45:53 PM
Kandace... from what i know right now, Robyn Kass who is the casting directer of BB-USA is doing the casting calls.

If you were able to see the US feeds during the season then you will still be able to see the feeds for the Canadian version. IF SUPERPASS CARRIES them

from what i have briefly read (1%) it's going to be more like the USA version than any other version out there.

As to the feeds, if its BB i'm in. LOL! 

I wouldnt count on the show airing in the US though.  Unless maybe on WE TV or Oxygen as they seem to carry alot of those "Slice" shows here in the US, but usually after the fact.

Big Brother Canada Vancouver Auditions – An Interview with Hayden Moss

SEPTEMBER 24, 2012
Posted by Felix Kay | 1 Comment
Over 600 people lined up in front of the Convention Centre Sunday morning, all trying their luck to get on the first  Season of Big Brother Canada — and Hayden Moss, winner of Big Brother 12, was there to watch it all go down.


It was a gathering of exhibitionists, and the Big Brother casting team would expect nothing less. When it comes to getting noticed in a crowd, it’s all about appearance. Some people attempted to stick out by dressing up – One guy was dressed as a police officer, which looked straight out of the Village People, while others took a different route and tried grabbing the producer’s attention by “engaging with their surroundings” – whether it was climbing the giant Orca, or running up the line pumping the crowd –  everyone wanted to be in the spotlight, and this was their 5mins.



Hayden Moss, one of the Big Brother power houses who won Season 12, was at the open auditions to hype the crowed and show his support for the inaugural season of the show that set his life down a very unique direction. On the show, Hayden was part of “The Brigade” alliance, along with Enzo, Matt, and Lane. Hayden’s closest friend inside his Brigade alliance is Enzo but he also befriended Lane, Kristen, Kathy and Andrew.

Hayden’s nickname within his alliance was “The Animal”; he knew how to play the game and played it well. He describes himself as “outgoing, athletic and charming”— and I assure you after speaking with Hayden, he is a genuinely awesome person, (but let’s keep it low key, we don’t want to ruin his street cred).

I had the luxury of hanging out with Hayden at the audition, and got a chance to ask him a few questions about Big Brother and the upcoming season of Big Brother Canada;

Felix: How would you feel about returning to the Big Brother House for All Stars 2?

Hayden: I’d love to come back for a 2nd 500k… being the 1st 2 time winner would be pretty sweet!
Felix: What are your thoughts on Big Brother 14 and who did you think would win?

Hayden: After the fact… I really think Dan played the best game, but I was rooting for Ian. I couldn’t be more stoked about the outcome!
Felix: Aside from any of the House Guests from Season 12, who would you most like to play Big Brother with?

Hayden: I call this the “Legends and Models” category. I’d love to play with and beat the legends of BB… Dr Will, Evel Dick, Dan Gheesling, Mike Boogie etc, but I would love to live in a house with some of the models like Cassi Colvin and Kara Monaco! For obvious reasons…
Felix: When you joined the brigade, did you think you would make it to the final two?

Hayden: The short answer is YES! I knew I was going to win! BB is a very tough game, and you have to have confidence, if you don’t believe in yourself you wont last!
Felix: How did you feel about back stabbing Brittany?

Hayden: I honestly felt awful about it. She’s a great girl, but at the end of the day you have to do what it takes to win!
Felix: Are you still in touch with the brigade members?

Hayden: Absolutely, we shoot the shit all the time. We will all be life long friends!
Felix: How did it feel living in the Big Brother house for 79 days?

Hayden: Brutal and Amazing! Its not easy being away from… EVERYTHING for 3 months, but the payoff was worth it!
Felix: How did winning the Big Brother grand prize change your life?

Hayden: Obviously my bank account is a little healthier these days, but the friends and networking opportunities are what really made the experience a life changer!
Felix: What was your best experience in the big brother house?

Hayden: When the last vote went my direction and I knew I was getting PAID!
Felix: Do you have any advice you can give for the upcoming Big Brother Canada contestants?

Hayden: Don’t get complacent, keep your eye on the prize, and expect the unexpected!
Felix: Thank you for taking the time to speak with me.

Big Brother Canada is set to air February, 2013 on Slice.

Big Brother Canada: 10,000 apply for 14 house guest spots

Nancy J. White
Life Reporter

Ten thousand Canadians have applied for the 14 spots in the first ever Big Brother Canada.

The national casting tour that stopped in Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Montreal and Toronto and the online audition process have all ended.

“Based on the excitement and passion of the thousands who have applied, we know that we’ll find a legendary group of intriguing characters and big personalities for the inaugural season,” said Barbara Williams, senior vice-president of content at Shaw Media.

The show will premiere in winter 2013 on Slice.

Similar to the U.S. show, the chosen few will leave their lives behind to dwell in the Big Brother house outfitted with wall-to-wall cameras and microphones. They will compete in challenges every week and vote each other out until one is left.

No matter what there will be a conflict.

Hopefully CTV shows Criminal Minds on Tuesdays and BB airs at 9pm so no conflict for me.


NVM just solved my timing issue:

Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week: Wednesdays at 9 p.m., Thursdays at 10 p.m. and Sundays at 9 p.m.

10pm seems so late  for a live show -.-

We heard some brand new Big Brother Canada details today, and we’re so excited to share them with you!

Wondering about the premiere date? Pull out your calendars right now and circle February 27th, when Big Brother Canada is slated to premiere at 9pm ET/PT. Similar to the hugely popular US series, Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week only on Slice, on Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT, Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT and Sundays at 9pm ET/PT, with live eviction episodes on Thursdays. The search for a diverse group of contestants still continues, so stay tuned for more details on the final 14 in the coming months.

But that’s not all. If you can’t get enough of the prime-time drama, we’ve got amazing news for you: Big Brother After Dark will also kick off on February 27th only on Slice. Big Brother After Dark will air seven days a week from 2am-5am ET/11pm-2am PT, with a live, uncut and uncensored feed directly from the Big Brother house. There’s no better way to peek inside the Big Brother house after the cameras have been turned off.

@Kandace I am not sure. I would think they would. Are Canadians blocked from American feeds?

Canadians were not blocked from the live feeds from what I know of and they always  got to see it on tv.

It's going to be a sit and wait game.

 We don't want anyone to get in trouble for posting "hot links" for the live Canadian feeds so when in doubt PM a moderator! :lol3:

BIG BROTHER CANADA GIVES FANS THE BIGGEST MULTIPLATFORM ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE
Download Press Release | Return to Press Releases

Robust Interactive Website Offers 24 Hour Live Feed, Prizes and Power to Biggest Fans

Bigbrothercanada.ca to Stream More Content
Than Any Other Entertainment Series in Canada


TORONTO, January 16, 2013 – This February Big Brother Canada is taking over, both on air and online.  Shaw Media and Insight Productions have teamed up with Emmy® Award-winning interactive agency Secret Location to develop a robust digital platform that will be wholly integrated into the production of the highly-anticipated series. The extensive and interactive digital experience will offer fans the unprecedented opportunity to influence and impact what transpires week-to-week on screen. Canadian fans have the chance to: eavesdrop on the houseguests 24 hours a day, vote on twists and turns, engage with the houseguests and play the Big Brother Canada Power Play game for points, prizes and power. Big Brother Canada and all digital components launch February 27th on SliceTMand at Bigbrothercanada.ca Big Brother Canada is the first Canadian installment of Endemol’s worldwide hit franchise.

“Social engagement is a huge part of Big Brother’s appeal for fans and we’ve created a completely integrated online experience that will resonate with audiences,” said Barbara Williams, SVP of Content for Shaw Media. “We’ve developed a platform that gives our audience countless opportunities to engage and make decisions that will impact the series in real time and in fact, there may even be moments throughout the series that fans could have more power over the happenings in the house than the houseguests themselves!”

The robust website will empower fans to continually shock the houseguests and influence the course of the show. Big Brother Canada promises Canadians the opportunity to vote for major decisions throughout the season. What if Canadians are given the chance to determine houseguests’ rewards and punishments? Imagine they have the opportunity to influence the food in the house? And who will fans choose if given the power to save a life or the final say in an eviction? Canadians will have their say, but as to how much will be revealed as the series unfolds. 

The site’s Big Brother Canada Power Play prediction game is the ultimate opportunity for the uber-fan. Power Play will give Canadians the best interactive platform to play along while watching the show. Each week fans will be asked to lock in their predictions for who will win Head of Household and the Power of Veto competitions, who will be put up on the block and ultimately who will be evicted. The more each fan participates in the game, the more points they accumulate, and the more potential they have to win prizes and power to shape what’s happening on air.

"We are excited to offer a broad multiplatform experience that offers live feeds, blogs, video exclusives, a play at home game and extensive social engagement," said John Brunton, Executive Producer, Insight Productions. "This is the largest, most comprehensive, digital undertaking our company has ever done."

"Through an incredibly close collaboration with Shaw Media and Insight Productions - working in real time as part of production - we now have the unique ability to let fans make decisions that will actually affect the characters and action in the TV series in ways we’ve never executed before,” said James Milward, Founder of Secret Location.

For those who just can’t get enough of the goings on inside the Big Brother Canada house Bigbrothercanada.ca will offer a free 24 hour live feed available for streaming daily following the series premiere on February 27th. [/size]Other video exclusives will include houseguests’ answers to questions submitted by fans through Facebook and Twitter, behind the scenes footage you won’t see on air and interviews with favourite previous Big Brother US houseguests. Bigbrothercanada.ca will stream more content than any other entertainment series in the country. Bigbrothercanada.ca and the Big Brother Canada game are accessible on all devices including tablets and smartphones.

The first Canadian installment of the international sensation, Big Brother Canada premieres on February 27th at 9pm ET/PT onSliceTM. Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week, on Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT,Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT and Sundays at 9pm ET/PT, with live eviction episodes on Thursdays. Big Brother Canada After Dark will kick off on February 27th and air seven days a week from2am-5am ET/ 11pm-2am PT.

The Bigbrothercanada.ca website is funded in part by The Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund.

VANCOUVER – Wall-to-wall cameras and microphones are just not enough for the first-ever Big Brother Canada reality series, to bow here on February 27.

Insight Productions and broadcaster Shaw Media tapped digital producer Secret Location to create a free 24 hour live stream with social engagement to allow viewers to eavesdrop on and interact with the strangers-living-together reality series.
The multi-platform offering will also enable viewers to vote on twists and turns, interact with the competitors and play a Big Brother Canada Power Play game for points and prizes.
Big Brother Canada fans will have a say in determining house-guests rewards and punishment, the food in the house and whether to save a life or settle on an eviction.
The BigbrotherCanada.ca live streaming site will not be available to American users because of geo-gating.
While sister channel Global Television airs CBS' Big Brother series here, Shaw Media's Slice channel will air the first Canadian installment of Endemol’s global franchise.
Big Brother Canada will air three nights a week on Slice, and Big Brother Canada After Dark will air seven days a week late night.

I think we all know we have "ways around" the live feed issue for  the Americans here that want to watch BB Canada..

And with that being the case I believe we would  need to get a few things clarified.

Please add suggestions and oppositions to help us figure out  how to make the best out of our FIRST BB Canada Season! :tup:

1) Those that want to update, will we be allowed to post the updates here on RFF with screen caps from what ever source we chose to use?

2) Since  we are not held by the restrains of CBS and the live feeds policing in the past will we be able to post videos?

3) if the answer to 2 is yes then i would suggest a time limit on some of the "live feed captured video to be no longer than a few minutes. this way it's only the important stuff

4) We most likely will have a separate thread for ALL LEGAL YouTube videos that are released along with the credit links to them

Post by: georgiapeach on January 22, 2013, 12:11:50 AM
Good questions ugot!! I would say though  let's hold off on all this for now until we get more info.

The bottom line is that no one (esp RFF) wants to be attacked for copyright violations, so let's see what we can do as the time gets closer and we have more info.......

details on how to get tickets for the first 4 live evictions were put online yesterday:

Email bbcaudience@insighttv.com with the subject line: Big Brother Canada Tickets for [Date Requested]
Include your name, email address, phone number & number of tickets requested in the body of your email.
Please note that we cannot guarantee tickets, you must be able to travel to the Greater Toronto Area and the minimum age is 11.

http://t.co/YidfKc8t

The first eviction is supposed to be on Feb.28... so someone gets out pretty early unless they enter the house prior to the 27th.

I already put a request for all 4 of the available dates.

Thanks Ugot :)

I love the design of the house. Its furnished by the Brick which is also giving the winner a prize.

Union Station is Toronto's main hub of transit.

This hallway seems cramped.

One bedroom idk about that.

I think a lot of the ways they have things set up is more geared towards BBUK styles. So i think some of the comps won't be as big and challenging as we are use to with the USA Version.

Interesting. Do you know if the rules will following the American or British version?

Edit:

After looking at the house video again it looks like we do have an HOH room. This likely means the rules of the American version.

So we now know the house guests and their bios.

My question is do the house guests get to read the bios of the other house guests on the internet?

Wouldn't that destroy the strategy of some of the house guests?

I don't think they release the bios until all the HouseGuests are in sequester/already in the house.

Are they in sequester right now?

If the premiere is on the 27th, I would wager that they're in the house, but that's just speculation on my part.

Media day is online (I will try and find a good link) and there is a cameo from Dan. After playing a weeks worth of BB they voted for the best player to receive $1,000 to their charity :hearts:.

By the looks of it it's the American format with slight changes. The only major change (that I see)is the nomination ceremony is without the keys and the HoH just says "I nominated (insert name) And (insert name)"

Update: I PMed the link to Leafsfan to put the Vid.

usually the HG are in sequester 1 week or so before hand. They will not see anything about their HG's til after they come out

That makes sense.

Are they in sequester right now?

Tried slop today, twice. One with chocolate chips and once with hot sauce.

Chocolate chips was totally fine, but Hot sauce was unbearable terrible and I had to spit it out. Unfortunately I cam too late to meet Dan, but had a good time chilling and chilling for the workers!

I got a Big Brother Canada ice cream (or slop cream) scooper and won tix for a future live eviction!

Got to meet Dan for a second after the show. To me the snafu with post veto noms sitting together was not that big of a deal.

BIG BROTHER CANADA'S ARISA COX NAMED AS NEW MORNING RADIO HOST
[/size]
BY BRAD5 MAY 2013NEWSBIG BROTHER CANADA
Big Brother Canada host Arisa Cox has already moved onto her next project.

Cox has joined the Rogers Radio station 91.7 The Bounce as its new morning show host alongside Ara Andonian, who currently works on the afternoon drive show.


“With her incredibly vibrant character, love of pop music and pop culture, and wide range of experiences under her belt, Arisa brings a fresh, new savvy sound to The BOUNCE,” said Russell James, Program Director, 91.7 The BOUNCE. “With the combination of Arisa’s big personality with Ara’s quirky sense of humour, the two will breathe new life into Edmonton morning radio.”
Edmonton audiences will be familiar with Cox as the host of Canadian reality television series Big Brother Canada, former co-host of E! News Weekend, national arts reporter for CBC News Network, and living on-camera for a year on Canada’s first big reality series, The Lofters.

Whether it was stalking polar bears in the subarctic wilds, or interviewing A-list celebrities on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival, the GRAMMY Awards, and Cannes, Cox has travelled across Canada and the globe bringing audiences exciting entertainment and lifestyle stories. A Toronto native, Cox currently lives in Edmonton with her husband and two children.

“I’m thrilled to join The BOUNCE family, and can’t wait to launch the new morning show with Ara,” said Cox. “Since making the move to Edmonton, my family and I have met some amazing people and we’re proud to call it home.”
Arisa’s co-host Ara Andonian joined the station earlier this year.

Prior to joining The BOUNCE, Andonian was heard on British Columbia airwaves, working on-air on The River in Kamloops and SUN FM in Kelowna. From doing fake radio shows in his bedroom to performing all sorts of ridiculous routines for whoever was in earshot, Andonian has a passion for entertainment.
