As anticipation builds for next week’s season-five premiere of “Big Brother Canada”, today the new season’s final eight houseguests have finally been revealed.
Yesterday it was revealed that the upcoming season will feature a “second chance” twist that will see eight returning houseguests from past seasons pitted against eight newbies who have never appeared on the show before.
The final four “second chance” houseguests are: Ika Wong from Thornhill, ON; Dallas Cormier from Edmonton, AB; Sindy with an “S” Nguyen from Toronto, ON; and Cassandra Shahinfar from Winnipeg, MB. These returning players will go head-to-head with new houseguests: Demetres Giannitsos, a blue collar contractor from Edson, AB; Karen Singbeil, a real estate broker from Victoria, BC; Dillon Carman, a heavyweight boxing champion from Madoc, ON; and Jackie McCurrach, a professional pizza-maker from Port Coquitlam, BC.
Arisa Cox returns as host, while the 16 houseguests will compete for a grand prize of $100,000, a $30,000 home furnishing makeover from The Brick, and a new 2017 Toyota 86.
The fifth season of “Big Brother Canada” kicks off on Wednesday, Mar. 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global, with additional episodes airing Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT and Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Full episodes will also be available to view online.
