Someone's always watching, and it can be you, up close and personal! If you’ve ever dreamt of being able to catch a live Big Brother Canada house eviction, you’ll be happy to know it’s possible to score tickets to a studio taping. People are invited to apply for seats online and they’re available for every week.
Now that the first three episodes of season 8 have been released, you’ve probably claimed your favourites and bet on future alliances involving the remaining 15 contestants.
Now, you can take it a step further by visiting the official Big Brother Canada website and letting them know how much you’d love to experience the drama live.
According to the website, tickets for each Thursday eviction are available to Canadians 16 years or older who send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They’ll need to include their full name, the Thursday they’d like to attend, as well as the number and names of the guests that will be tagging along.
Selection is based on a “first-come-first-serve basis” and each audience member is allowed to attend a maximum of 3 tapings per season.
The information page also states that each group is limited to 4 guests or less and are welcome to join the Rush Line if they are denied tickets. The Rush Line will take guests based on the number of confirmed guests who fail to show up.
Big Brother Canada reports that the studio is located at 550 Evans Ave. in Etobicoke just outside of Toronto. However, there have only been rumours regarding whether or not the actual Big Brother Canada house is located at the same address as the studio.
In earlier seasons, there was speculation from The Big Brother Network that the contestants were reportedly being housed at a studio in the Toronto suburb Mississauga.
They later reported that the studio location had been sold and production of the reality show moved for season 6.
Since then, fans of the series who have attended tapings have reported under Reddit threads that the house is on the same property as the studio. They’ve even claimed that an employee at the studio informed them that “the house isn’t right there behind the stage, but it’s back there.”
There has yet to be confirmation from Big Brother Canada themselves about where exactly the season 8 contestants are being held. However, the official page for applying to become a contestant states, “You must be willing to live in the Big Brother Canada house located in Toronto for approximately seventy-five days.”
If you can’t make it to one of the tapings, you can catch the next episode of Big Brother Canada, from the comfort of your own house, March 11 on Global TV.
