Big Brother Canada – And We’re Off!

danielle-smiling

I’m a little rusty blogging Big Brother, and I’m not quite sure how it will be this spring considering the limited access I’ll have to feeds / shows.  Throughout the season, I’m sure I’ll figure out better ways to watch the show, and hopefully even live tweet at some point if I can find a streaming video of the shows on Slice.  Either way, I’m excited some version of Big Brother is back, and the format isn’t really different from the US version.

The host may not be the Julie Chen we’re all used to, but I’m sure Arisa Cox will be a fine replacement for the Chenbot we’ve grown to sort of like over the years.  Casting appears to be on par with the US version, with a wide variety of personalities and looks.  By variety in looks I mean you choose from the good looking brunette, good looking blonde, good looking nerdy guy, good looking buff guy, etc.. you get the picture.  Like a typical Big Brother season, a large percent of the house is full of good looking people.

Doing some blogging as I watch the first episode, one thing I’m not used to is seeing snow in the casting videos (though I am used to seeing it outside my window grr), and apparently they allow the word ‘shit’ to go on TV.  Kind of refreshing to watch TV in other countries.  As I’m typing this, the first five houseguests have entered, claimed their spots and have already set up for some drama.  For example, Kat saying she hopes there aren’t any bubbly loud girls with big boobs in the house, then they flash to Danielle who is just that.   They’re also setting up for some weird showmances like showing Andrew talking about falling for a Sandra Bullock clone, then Jillian saying she looks like Sandra Bullock.   Ok then.

(side note, I’m going to get confused between all these similar looking brunette girls for the first few episodes, I guarantee it)

A new thing this year is that there is a phone placed inside the house which will randomly ring.  Whoever answers the phone will be given special instructions for a task.  If they succeed, they will be rewarded, but if they failed, they’ll be punished.

Naturally that means the phone will ring on the first night, and indeed it does.  Suzette races to answer and hears some creepy guy tell her to go into the diary room and not tell anyone about it.  After walking around the house casually trying to find it without looking suspicious (she failed), Suzette makes her way into the DR to find she’s been picked as HoH and has to nominate two people for eviction within the hour.  If she tells anyone about it prior to that, she will be punished (I am so curious what this punishment is – whips, chains?).

Arisa calls them into the living room to announce the twist and reveals Suzette’s secret, which means she has to do her nominations now – based solely on first impressions.   Suzette nominated:

Thomas the firefighter
Emmett the cowboy

Moving along at a brief pace, the PoV competition is held, and the competitors are:

Thomas
Emmett
Suzette
Peter
Aneal
Gary

gary-cartwheelDressed in purple leotards, the houseguests head out back to do the PoV competition….

The competition is for houseguests to pop balloons with the little spikes on their belts, which meant all of them thrusting into the ground like they were humping a bunch of balloons.  After plenty of thrusts, and Tom turning Liza on quite a bit, he was the first one to successfully find all the puzzle pieces and win the PoV!

That wrapped up the first episode, and I must say they did a pretty solid transition from US to Canada versions.  While they made it extremely tough for American viewers to watch, at least the format and contestants are all similar.  I’ll be posting periodically to give you updates on who is the renom.  Eviction is tonight at 10pm I believe.

I don't want to moderate every single comment on this blog, so please don't make me have to. Please do not bash other people for their opinions, also don't swear like Amanda. Once in awhile is ok, but every other word is not (kids can read this).

The obvious stuff is also there... no attacks, threats, etc. No racist remarks, etc. Use common sense and talk to people like you'd talk to your grandmother who is a Big Brother fan

Thank you!
