Big Brother Canada 8 Cast: BBCAN8 Houseguests Revealed

Big Brother Canada season 8 launches next Wednesday, March 4.  Fans of BBCAN8 have already been teased about this season being supersized. It’ll have a two-night premiere on Wednesday and Thursday of next week. To ramp fans up even more for the Big Brother Canada 8 launch, Global TV plans to air a special on Sunday March 1. It’s supposed to look back at the past seven seasons and feature exclusive interviews with the new cast.

On Monday, BBCAN8 dropped some sneak peek photos of the new house. These images revealed that the Big Brother Canada house will have a superhero theme going into season 8. This superhero theme has led to a lot of speculation, especially what it might mean for the cast. Could this be an all-star season? A heroes vs villains season? Newbies vs vets? We have so many questions about the BBCAN8 cast and now we have some answers.

Earlier today, GlobalTV officially released the BBCAN8 cast list. Here are the heroes and villains we’ll be seeing this year. We have sixteen new houseguests this year. The Big Brother Canada Twitter introduced the houseguests with cool exclusive gifs (we’ll replace these pictures with real ones later). Meet the cast!
