Big Brother Canada issues casting call

  • Print

 Looking for a reality-TV adventure? Want to be famous just for being famous? Eager to have your every movement and potentially embarrassing outburst captured on camera for a nationwide TV audience?

Well, then, Big Brother could be watching YOU.

Shaw Media and Insight Productions will begin casting for Big Brother Canada this Wednesday (full details are available at www.bigbrothercanada.ca), inviting "Canadians 19 years and older ... (who are) extroverts, conformists, risk takers, adventurers, romantics, leaders, plotters and planners, and those who don’t mind a little healthy competition" to apply.

The show’s producers are also holding a small-scale series of open casting calls in Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Montreal and Toronto, but no Winnipeg stop is currently planned. Applications are being accepted until Oct. 16.

The CBS-produced U.S. version of Big Brother has been a huge summertime ratings winner for Global TV for more than a decade. The Canadian version is slated to air on the Shaw-owned Slice cable channel this winter.
