‘Big Brother Canada’: Check out the list of casting calls

In case you didn’t realize by our hundred-plus stories about “Big Brother 14” this summer, we love “Big Brother.” From the live feeds to the episodes to the strategy and debate, there’s really no other show that updates in real-time and gives you a sense that you as a viewer is a part of what is going on.

Since we really can’t wait for the show to start up again next summer to talk about it again, we are going to be providing a few updates here and there about the upcoming Canadian version of the show that will air on Slice early next year. (Let’s hope that there will be a way for U.S. audiences to watch it.) We know that some of the same people who work on the American show, including casting director Robyn Kass, are going to be back to help out here, and the game will be played similar to the American show rather than the method used overseas. (No word on any live feeds yet.)

If you do live in Canada and are hoping to try out for the show, here are some of the dates remaining for open calls. Our main piece of advice? Be energetic and never answer a question with “I don’t know.”

Hopefully, we will get an opportunity to see a full spectrum of Canadian personalities on this show, and what is fascinating here about it as an American viewer is that you are getting to see more than just a great competition: you’re also getting a window into another country’s culture. This is why we love “The Amazing Race Australia” so much.

It’s looking like we will be covering the show in the new year, so be sure to keep checking back for some addition updates. Also, we have some speculation about “Big Brother 15” in America over at the link here.
