16 New Houseguests Suit up for an Extraordinarily Supersized Season 8 of Big Brother Canada

FEBRUARY 26, 2020 | Posted By: STAFF

Big Brother Canada bounds to new heights with a supersized season where 16 Canadians embark on an unforgettable and extraordinary journey. Debuting Wednesday, March 4 at 7 p.m. ET/PT, this season’s houseguests face the biggest test yet: an extended season lasting two extra weeks – creating more hours spent in the house than ever before, allowing for more challenges, more twists, and of course…more drama! Whether it is physical strength, mental prowess, or social dominance, houseguests must hone in on their super strengths – and perhaps even morph their identities – to become the ultimate winner and claim the #BBCAN8 title!

This season is the origin story of Big Brother Canada’s next batch of superheroes and they come from all walks of life including: a blue collar lobster fisherman and first-ever houseguest from P.E.I.; a powerlifting champ and father of two from Alberta; a risk-taking, self-proclaimed chameleon from Quebec; a professional wrestler who prides himself on his strong mental endurance from Ontario; a tough and determined disability caregiver from British Columbia; and a “brain transformation specialist” from Ontario.

Starting today until Saturday, February 29, Canada has the power to keep their favourite houseguests safe from the first eviction by voting on Fans can vote as often as they like to attempt to save their favourite houseguests. Then, watch the voting results play out during the premiere on Wednesday, March 4 at 7 p.m. ET/PT to see which houseguests receive the fewest votes and find themselves in immediate danger.

For an exciting look into the new season, watch Big Brother Canada’s Supersized Season 8 Preview with ET Canada airing Sunday, March 1 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. ET Canada’s one-hour special features interviews with this season’s new houseguests, a catchup with Season 7 winner Dane Rupert in his hometown of Kelowna, B.C., an exclusive tour of the new #BBCAN8 house led by host Arisa Cox, and a special sneak peek into this season’s theme.
