One of the major benefits of the house being in Toronto is that east coast viewers will not have to stay up till 4am/6am for late night shenanigans on the feeds...and west coast viewers will also get a big break as most shenanigans for the day will be wrapped up every night by 12am-1am on the feeds. AWESOME news.

So so excited for this! Wish I could watch live, but I barely watch anything live anymore so ... lol

The cast looks great! Very diverse! Let's see how Robyn did ... I like that almost all (except one?) are fans of the show.

The house also looks great! Very much a mix of the US/UK house, IMHO. I like it a lot. I love how they're all forced to live in the same bedroom. LMAO. Such a good idea! Make it REALLY uncomfortable. I think our BB treats the HGs way too good. I'm so ready for a change on the US format. Sigh.

The 1 bedroom thing can either backfire BIG time...or be INGENIOUS!

My only fear with 1 bedroom as we will end up with a BB1US situation, where everyone is buddy buddy and friends...UGH...

But the 1 bedroom thing will certainly make it much less harder for people to scheme...or at least doing it WITHOUT getting caught :)

Also another positive to 1 bedroom is it will be noisy, less chance of people going in there all the time to sleep the fucking day awat like on BBUS

The single bedroom works just fine on the UK version. It'll be interesting to see how it works with the North American format since you have more gameplay/strategy talk than they are allowed on BBUK.

Judging from some production video leaks and such, it looks like there is FOR SURE 2 bedrooms, 1 have not room and 1 HOH...so I don't think that 1 big bedroom they showed us in the ET Canada video is the only bedroom.

Rob Cesternino (from Survivor) has reality show podcasts, and recently interviewed Ian Terry (BB14 winner) about his opinions on the Big Brother Canada cast:

Ian's picks:

Ian thinks Anuj "AJ" Burman is winning hands down.

Ian's pick for runner-up is Andrew Monaghan.

Posted Image
Thinks Danielle Alexander will be the 2nd out because she's the "model type" of the season.


Rob's picks:

Posted Image
Alec Beall is Rob's pick for the Big Brother Canada winner based on his admiration for Dr. Will.

Posted Image
Suzette Amaya is Rob's pick for runner-up.

Also interesting tidbit from the podcast...

Apparently the 100,000$ cash prize is tax free, which Ian thought was really cool. Said he lost about 40% of his prize money because of taxes. He and Rob Cesternino also had no fucking clue what The Brick was, haha! "Like a Canadian IKEA?"

Pre-show picks are meaningless. I wish people would stop doing those. LOL.

Yep any winnings in Canada in lottery or gameshows/sweepstakes/contests ect are taxfree.

Sure the prize money is much less than US....but really 500,000 in US = 300,000 after taxes.

Canada's = 100,000 cash + 25,000 GC + 20,000 vehicle = 145,000 approx.

In reality US BB is only about 150,000 more...and considering it is backed by CBS, while BBCA is backed by Slice (think FX or Showtime in the US), thats not bad.

I like them because they're fun and interesting... I don't look at them as accurate or valid.
