Storyline

The format for Big Brother in Canada remains largely unchanged from the U.S. edition, making them the only two version of the series thus far to follow this format. HouseGuests are sequestered in the Big Brother House without contact with the outside world. Each week, the HouseGuests take part in several compulsory challenges that determine who will win food, luxuries, and opportunities to become the Head of Household (HoH) or win the Power of Veto (PoV). The winner of the weekly HoH competition is immune from nominations and nominates two fellow HouseGuests for eviction. The two HouseGuests nominated for eviction are also referred to as being "on the block" for eviction. After a HouseGuest becomes HoH, he or she is ineligible to take part in the next HoH competition. The winner of the PoV competition wins the right to save one of the nominated HouseGuests from eviction and take them off the block. If the PoV winner exercises the power, the HoH then nominates another HouseGuest to go ... Written by Cody

Big Brother Canada makes the US version look like kindergarten

They say that the Canadian are nice, polite, and friendly Eh. Dam was I wrong. This Canadian version makes the US original look like child's play. This reality show is the most cut throat, nerve racking, entertainment I have ever enjoyed. I laughed and cried, at times cursed a few. In the end it was better than a two way. There was more than once that I held my breath and prayed.with fingers crossed. Certainly deserves an award. Brilliant twist and turns at every minute certainly a calculated decision in the unusual house guests chosen. Marsha the Moose was definitely a pet I want to take home. Love the voice. Canada has certainly taken off and no doubt it will stay air borne for awhile.
