There are 14 spots available in the Big Brother Canada house, which will be outfitted with wall-to-wall cameras and microphones to capture residents' every move.

Each week, the house guests will be made to compete in a series of challenges and vote each other out until one takes home the grand prize of $100,000.

Executive producer John Brunton promises that "this group of houseguests will be completely unique, completely Canadian."

Big Brother Canada is set to premiere on Slice in 2013.
