Congratulations to Big Brother Canada as Global orders a 4th season set to arrive in 2016 after another strong ratings run for the young franchise installment.
In its first season on Global after starting out on Slice Big Brother Canada grew its audience by 40% and earning a spot in the Top 20 for television programming.
It wasn’t just the show that did well though as Big Brother Live Feeds engagement increased by 33% over the past season and deliver 1.6 million hours of viewed footage. By my math that means there were approximately 5.2 million shouting ads injected over whispering strategy sessions. RAMADA!!
I had a blast sharing the season with all of you this year even if round three ended up less exciting than the previous two. We’ll just have to hold out hope for a quick recovery with Big Brother Canada 4.

If you managed to avoid the season finale spoilers revealed hours before broadcast, it was an exciting finale that kept us surprised on what was going to happen next. Godfrey pulled out two clutch wins to decide the final eviction where he sent Ashleigh out to the Jury and brought Sarah along with him.
Ultimately the Jury preferred Sarah’s strategy to Godfrey’s and overwhelmingly voted her the winner with support for Godfrey only coming from Bruno and Bobby.
Speaking with Shaw Media, Sarah credited her success in part to the season’s big twist and winning a critical follow-on comp.
“I honestly felt like I was going to be out every single week. It turned around when Brittnee used the Have Not super power and I won HOH right after – that’s when I thought that I might have a shot to get to the end. I still can’t believe it though, it’s so surreal!” said Sarah Hanlon.
That was undeniably a turning point in the season as we saw the string of evictions for Kevin, Willow, Bruno, and Zach in quick succession leaving Sarah to fend off comp-throwing Godfrey and frequently comp-challenged Pilar. The landscape of threats rapidly changed and left an opening for Sarah to be taken to the F2 where she secured the Jury votes and $100K prize.
Congrats to Sarah on her big win and kudos to Godfrey on his runner-up achievement and humble attitude toward the Jury’s decision. Now on to Big Brother 17 starting this June on CBS.
Ready to find out who won Big Brother Canada 3? The season results revealed tonight when the Jury casts its votes for your new winner of BBCAN.
Before we get to the big vote we’ve still got a little house cleaning to do. Three Houseguests remain, but only two can stand before the Jury. So let’s find out who won the first two rounds as Big Brother Canada replays the action that’s been blacked out on the Feeds since the Weekend.
Remember that the winner of the first two rounds will face off in the third to become the last HoH of the season and executioner of the final eviction. Who do you think it’ll be?
Final HoH – Round 1:
It’s the end of the world (as we know it…) and the HGs must fill their buckets with the sands of time. Sand is pouring out of a container and the 3 players must fill a bucket, run it up the stairs, and pour it back in to the same draining container. This one was designed for a strong, fast, and fit player… yeah.
Sarah runs out of the sand first. Ashleigh quits and gives up. Seriously.
Godfrey wins Round 1.
The remaining two Houseguests, Sarah and Ashleigh, will face off in the second round with that winner moving on to the third round and the loser sitting on the sidelines to watch their fate play out.
Final HoH – Round 2:
HGs must connect historical events and the HGs involved. It’s on a giant wheel and magnet boards that go in between the faces.
Sarah lost by around fifteen minutes.
Ashleigh wins Round 2.
Godfrey and Ashleigh move on. Winner of the third round will decide who goes to Jury and who goes to the F2.
Final HoH – Round 3:
It’s finale night on BBCAN3 as the Jury reveals who won Big Brother Canada when the Final Three face off for the biggest HoH competition of the season and one more HG is evicted.
The season ender kicks off on Global tonight at 8/7c with a two-hour event and runs us through three HoH comps before the Jury interrogations and results reveal of the latest twist.
We’re likely to get an endurance comp and a combo’d physical/mental challenge in the first two rounds before the live/not-live third round that will decide the last Head of Household this season. That reminds me of Jon Pardy emptying his bucket in to Sabrina’s boat during the endurance comp last season. Good times.
It’ll be interesting to see how the evicted Juror takes the news. Who do you think should be cut from the roster there? Cast your vote in our poll here and share your thoughts.
Of course the bigger question is: who will win Big Brother tonight? Votes are rolling in for our poll and after some shifting yesterday we have one HG with a strong lead. We’ll have to see if that converts to the Jury’s views on things.
Wednesday night’s finale episode will reveal who won out in the final HoH competition to evict one last HG and set us up for the Final 2 before the Jury. But before those votes can be cast one Jury member will be eliminated in the latest twist for a season that wasn’t going to have anymore twists.
Who will the Jury vote to win the money and bragging rights? Should it be Ashleigh, Godfrey, or Sarah?
Ashleigh has ended the season guns blazing with a rapid series of crucial wins for her game to stay in the house and control the outcome. She’s got a lot of former allies in the Jury, but will they see her game as a standalone from her closest ally Zach?
Godfrey went the lone wolf route this season and couldn’t have pulled it off any better so far. He’s used low key visibility and a social game that has rarely put him at odds with the other Houseguests. It’ll be hard for the Jury to talk poorly about his social aspects, but what will they say of his competitive play?
Sarah took a mix of the two with a tighter alliance group of Brittnee, Willow to an extent, and briefly Sindy while staying on the outskirts of the social game. Tempers flared with some of the Houseguests which could damage her social angle, but a strong competitive record makes her a threat before the Jury.
The Jury will decide on Wednesday night, but you can vote now as we prepare for the Big Brother Canada 3 season finale Wednesday night at 8/7c only on Global!
