O Captain! My Captain!
British Columbia’s Kiefer Collison and Newfoundland’s Tina Thistle were chosen by Canada to be the captains of Team Destiny and Team Defender on the Big Brother Canada season nine premiere.
Kiefer and Tina picked their own teams via a schoolyard pick ‘em after spying on the houseguests from a secret room. They could watch the houseguests enter the house via a monitor in the new Games Room but could not hear them interact.
“We have to fit in with these people. These young people,” sighed Tina as they watched the first four houseguests enter.
“I barely fit into my clothes. I don’t know how I am going to fit in with these people,” laughed Kiefer.

Once the teams were chosen, host and executive producer Arisa Cox let the houseguests in on another twist.
“For this week, there are no Head of Household or Veto competitions but there is a team Safety Challenge and the stakes are high. Both captains are safe for the week as will be everyone on the winning team but for those of you on the losing team you will all be up for eviction,” she announced.
It was Victoria, the youth advocate from Hamilton, Ontario, who won the strength challenge for her team putting everyone on Team Defender except Kiefer on the block. As per the rules of this week, everyone in the house can vote except for Tina. Tina can only vote in case of a tie.
Tune in tomorrow night to see who will be the first houseguest evicted from the Big Brother Canada house.
