Big Brother Canada casting continues this week with the first in-person open casting call event. There are five events over the next four Sundays starting September 23, 2012 so you’ll have several opportunities to get to one of them.
If you’d rather not travel or aren’t able to attend these you can still apply through the BB Canada application website. There’s no need to apply both in-person and online.
There are several very important rules, but be sure to check the official list for any updates. You’re not allowed to camp out or arrive before 6AM at the events. You must be available for callbacks on the following Monday or Tuesday after the event so keep that in mind if you’re traveling from far away. Bring a valid government issued photo ID.

Best of luck to all the Big Brother Canada attendees!
Slice is working hard to make the debut season of Big Brother Canada as awesome as possible and they know the pressure is on. While they may be taking a lot of pages from the Big Brother US playbook, nothing wrong with that, they’re also working hard to make it uniquely their own.
Check out the new logo Slice has released for Big Brother Canada. I’ve got to say I like it a lot. They make good use of that empty space that’s always hanging out of “brother.” Very slick. I wonder if this will push CBS to offer up a new design next year.
What do you think of the new look for the Canadian version?
Don’t forget to have your BBCA applications ready to go because the new season will be here soon. Even the casting events are coming up very fast. Get all the details on the BB Canada casting events. Will you be applying to be a new HG?
The Big Brother Canada casting website is now live! Get ready for your chance to be part of the first Big Brother exclusively for our friends to the north.
The application website offers a brief form to complete with these basic instructions:
- Fill out the application form in one sitting
- Make sure you have a RECENT picture of yourself (no hats or sunglasses)
- Make sure you have a video ready to upload that’s less than 3 mins
If you don’t include a video then your application will NOT be reviewed or considered.
You’ll have to provide easy details like your full name, address, relationship status, and familiarity with Big Brother. You’ll also get to add a short bio and when I say short I mean 70 words or less short. The video clip has to be 3 minutes or less and they even provide some excellent tips on what makes a great video.
If you’d rather not make a video then Big Brother Canada open call casting events will still be held. No event details have been released so far, but we’ll continue to monitor and provide information when they’re announced. Be sure to join us on Facebook, Twitter, and Email updates to receive that info sent when it’s released.
The application deadline is October 16, 2012. Casting indicates the callbacks will begin in September 2012. Finalists will be notified by December 20, 2012.

Get ready, Canadians. The Big Brother Canada series is set to premiere in early 2013, but before we can get there the show needs a cast!
You’ll have two options: casting events or online video submission. This follows the pattern of the US version of Big Brother where many past HGs swear by both methods so there really isn’t a wrong way to apply for the show. In fact, you should read BB12’s Matt Hoffman’s guide to being cast on Big Brother no matter which way you apply.
Online applications will soon be accepted at Slice’s official BBCA website.
Update: Big Brother Canada applications are now being accepted!
Open casting calls for Big Brother Canada will be held in the following cities:
Vancouver – September 23, 2012
