The excitement is building for next week’s fourth season premiere of Big Brother Canada, Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global, and we have some big historic news to break! For the first time ever, fans will have their say on who gets to enter the house by voting for two of four international fan-favourite Wildcard houseguests by heading to

“We’re very excited to be introducing this new aspect to Big Brother Canada which has never been done in any country before,” said Christine Shipton, SVP, Content, Shaw Media. “The addition of the international wildcards makes this season especially unique and unpredictable. Big Brother follows different house rules in each country and these worlds are about to collide!”

The Wildcards are:

Jase Wirey (Big Brother US – Seasons 5 and 7): Jase is instantly recognizable to any Big Brother fan from the popular US version of the show and is still the only houseguest to win the first Head of Household in multiple seasons. Known for his physical abilities and his dislike for wearing shirts, Jase is looking for redemption in the Big Brother Canada house.

Nikki Grahame (Big Brother UK – has played in a total of five seasons): Nikki Grahame is quite simply a Big Brother franchise icon, and she’ll be the first to make that known! Her behaviour – most notably her epic diary room temper tantrums – is legendary. She has appeared in five different seasons of the series and also had her own reality series, Princess Nikki. In 2006, her first season on the show, she was the 12th most written about person in the UK.

Tim Dormer (Winner Big Brother Australia – Season 10): Tim is one of Australia’s biggest reality TV stars. As the Season 10 winner of Big Brother Australia, he’s charmed audiences and houseguests alike. Even though he’s made his way to the top as a manipulator, he’s clearly rooting for a fair game, and often stands up for the underdog.

Veronica Graf (Big Brother Italy – Season 13): Veronica is the most famous and most talked about Italian houseguest ever. Although commonly seen as a sexy Playboy bunny (she posed in the Italian edition of the magazine), she has also studied business and economics. Sure to stir up controversy, houseguests will not be able to judge this book by its cover.
