Even though we are getting near the end of “Big Brother 17” this summer, it feels like the show is never truly out of season these days. The latest season of “Big Brother Canada” is going to begin its exhaustive casting search this coming weekend, and we’ve got for you most of the information that you need to know right now if you plan on attending an open call.
Let’s start first and foremost with what to do if you want to apply online: You can do it at the show’s official site! You will have to enter some information along with a photo and a video showing off your personality. We got a press release offering up a few suggestions for those of you trying out straight from Robyn Kass, the casting director responsible for many of the decisions. Take heed of them, and maybe you’ve got a better chance of getting on:
1. Don’t plan too much and talk naturally.
2. Make sure your lighting and sound work properly.
3. Stay away from the same Big Brother clichés we hear time and time again, such as: “I can be your best friend or your worst enemy,” or “You either love me or hate me.”
4. Tell us something unique about yourself that will make you stand out.
5. Have a good time!
If you want to attend an open call, note that all of these are taking place from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. local time.
