From a media release:
Calling all #BBCAN houseguest wannabees! Big personalities, competition beasts, and strategic planners are all welcome as the Top 10* smash hit series Big Brother Canada is casting for Season 7. Following last seasonâ€™s successful run which grew audiences year-over-year, most notably with a 21% increase in the coveted A18-34 demo**, the series returns to Global in 2019.
Starting today, Canadians can apply online at BigBrotherCanada.ca for a chance to compete in the explosive new season. Those who think they have what it takes to make it in the Big Brother Canada house are asked to submit a photo and short video explaining why they are the ideal candidate. Applicants must be 19 years of age by February 1, 2019, and the online submission deadline is Saturday, November 17. More information, including a complete list of rules and eligibility, can be found at BigBrotherCanada.ca.
Additional details about the national casting tour, including cities, dates, and venues, will be announced later this summer. For updates, please visit BigBrotherCanada.ca.
Airing exclusively on Global in the 2019 broadcast season, Big Brother Canada 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, the houseguests battle in a series of challenges each week that empower or punish them, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.
Season 20 of Big Brother is currently airing Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global. Viewers who miss any of the dramatic moments can catch up following the broadcast the next day on GlobalTV.com, Global GO (available on Apple TV and Google Chromecast), and on demand.
Commissioned by Corus Entertainment, Season 7 of Big Brother Canada is produced by Insight Productions in association with Corus Entertainment and Endemol Shine. Executive producers are John Brunton and Erin Brock.
