It’s time for another season of drama! Last night was the Big Brother Canada season 8 premiere and from what we know about the houseguests so far, it seems as though the competition could get pretty intense this year.
During last night’s episode, viewers were introduced to the 16 new houseguests who will be taking over the BBCAN house for the next 12 weeks.
One thing that the reality series is known for is its epic themes and this year is no different. The entire house has been decked out, superhero style, and each houseguest has received a caricature that depicts them in classic comic book style.
This season’s contestants are competing for a grand prize of $100,000, $10,000 worth of groceries courtesy of Summer Fresh, and a trip for two to anywhere in the world thanks to Expedia.
Over the next three months, the houseguests will compete in a series of physical, emotional, and social games while cameras and microphones capture their every move. As contestants get voted out, they’ll move to a jury house where they’ll ultimately decide the fate of the final two players, so it’s important not to make too many enemies while in the BBCAN house.
After the show’s host Arisa Cox gave viewers a tour of the incredible house, the houseguests were introduced one-by-one, then sent into their new abode for the next few weeks.
Once everyone got comfortable, Cox dropped a bomb on the houseguests, revealing that Canada has spent the last week viewing their profiles online and voting to save their favourites. Unfortunately, the four houseguests with the least amount of votes found themselves in jeopardy just hours after walking into the BBCAN house.
Those four houseguests were Susanne, Nico, Chris, and Minh-Ly. After the four battled it out in an intense competition, Minh-Ly came out on top, earning herself safety for another week on Big Brother Canada.
We may only be one episode into this season so far, but strong personalities are already starting to emerge among the players, and Twitter is loving it. Two people that really stood out are Jamar and his classic Ontario accent and Minh-Ly and her sassy shade.
It’ll be interesting to see how things play out over the coming weeks, especially as competition amongst the houseguests becomes more and more intense and tensions begin to rise.
Be sure to tune into tonight’s episode of Big Brother Canada at 8 p.m. ET/PT to watch the first eviction of the season.
