From a media release:
Following three explosive seasons,Â Big Brother CanadaÂ is kicking off the national casting tour for its fourth season airing onÂ GlobalÂ early in 2016. Canadians 19 years of age and older can apply online atÂ BigBrotherCanada.caÂ beginning today, and in person this Fall at open casting calls across Canada. The online submission deadline isÂ October 19, 2015.
Set to embark on its fourth nation-wide casting tour,Â Big Brother CanadaÂ is travelling from coast to coast, looking for the most eclectic group of Canadians to star in the new season of the hit reality series. In addition to an online application process, Producers will host open casting calls in Vancouver (September 19), Calgary (September 26), Edmonton (September 26), Winnipeg (October 3), Toronto (October 24), MontrÃ©al (September 19), Halifax (September 26), and St. Johnâ€™s (October 3).
Those interested in applying can either apply online atÂ BigBrotherCanada.caÂ with a short video about why they would make the perfect houseguest, or in person at open casting calls throughout September and October. Applicants must be 19 years of age byÂ February 1, 2016. Additional information about the casting calls in select cities will be released in the coming weeks.
Airing exclusively on GlobalÂ early in 2016,Â Big Brother CanadaÂ plucks a group of hand-picked strangers from their homes, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.
