Judd’s question asked Allison, Scott, and Nate to explain which two BBCAN2 HGs they’d target for eviction if they went in to the game right then. It was a smart question and got the HGs thinking on what they’d do.
Sadly it was not an in-person visit to the house like we saw last season when Dan Gheesling spent a weekend in the house, but this was still a fun and unexpected surprise. Congrats to Judd on making the cut for an appearance last night.
Check out the pics below of Judd’s “visit” to the Secret HGs and then join us on our Big Brother Canada fansite!
Get ready for Big Brother 16 to start up early again this year! CBS has just announced the BB16 season will launch on June 25, 2014 in a move similar to last season’s early arrival. Awesome!
We’re thrilled to hear CBS is making another strong move of support for our favorite summer series (and fav reality series!) by giving us extra weeks of the dramatic BB show. Of course we’re hoping we get to focus on the better drama than some of last season!
So when does Big Brother 16 start? The series premiere arrives on Wednesday, June 25th and brings back its triple weekly episodes schedule. We’ll be watching new episodes Sundays and Wednesdays at 8PM ET/PT plus live eviction shows every Thursday at 9PM ET/PT.
BIG BROTHER, hosted by Julie Chen, will debut early for the second straight summer, beginning Wednesday, June 25 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) with the first of its three weekly broadcasts. The Thursday edition, featuring the live eviction show, premieres June 26 (9:00-10:00 PM) with the first eviction the following week (July 3). The Sunday broadcast premieres June 29 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
We’re thrilled to get that official confirmation from CBS and can’t wait to keep rolling out the BB16 preseason news. If you’re planning to apply to be a HG this summer then you better hurry. The application deadline this year is April 4th so that is coming up soon!

Big Brother Canada is underway this week after Wednesday night’s premiere of the sophomore season. Last night BBCAN host Arisa Cox officially introduced the secret cast that would become the first big twist of the season.
Arisa proudly announced that this was a totally new twist for any Big Brother anywhere. Here’s how the twist works. There were fourteen original HGs sent inside the house last week. Meanwhile a separate secret “war room” was set up on the sound stage where three additional HGs would reside for the next week.
Those secret HGs entered the room last night and have been observing Feeds from inside the house. The regular cast does not know about the secret HGs or that they’re being watched by them. Over the next week viewers will vote on which of the three secret HGs will get to go inside the regular house and join the game.
They’ve got Nate Sandari, a 23 year old sheet metal worker, Allison White, a 25 year old registered nurse working in psychiatry, and Scott “Contessa” Bosse, a 36 year old hospital worker slash drag queen. Viewers will be voting on those three options. So far Allison seems to be a serious BB fan which means I’m rooting for her to make the cut, but considering Canada’s love for Gary last season there may be a wave of support for Scott.
The three secret HGs had no idea what was going on last night when they were brought on stage and informed of their twist status. They probably thought they were preparing to head inside and start playing the game! So while it sounds like fun to be part of the twist it does not sound like fun for what they have to do.
Those HGs are trapped in one small room with three beds and a bunch of screens to watch the current HGs. There’s no escape or privacy for Nate, Allison, or Scott. I’d go nuts! But at least we can watch that happen with the 5th camera trained on them for the Feedsters to enjoy.
If you haven’t started watching Big Brother Canada then be sure to start right now! It’s very easy to watch the show from the US including episodes and the Feeds. Get all our tips & instructions on how to watch Big Brother Canada. The join us on our BBCAN specific BB site right here. Woohoo! More Big Brother is always fun!
Big Brother 15 was full of drama and surprisingly it still seems to follow some HGs even outside of the house. Earlier this week Big Brother HGs Judd Daugherty and McCrae Olson caught up for a little road trip down to Orlando for some drama-free fun in the sun. Not so fast, you two!
After being spotted by some Big Brother fans at Universal Studios in Orlando Judd confirmed via Twitter that he was there with McCrae. Well if you’re traveling to Orlando you best plan on giving Amanda a call to come along.

No worries though, after some Twitter banter and Judd explaining it wasn’t an intended snub the trio smoothed it over and all was right in the Big Brother world again.

Luckily, drama aside, the guys seemed to have had a pretty good time there. Both posed for photos with fans and even joined a new alliance of superheroes. Just as well Amanda wasn’t there though as she might have immediately suspected
Jean Gray Rogue as being out to get her and upset at Storm for talking to McCrae in the lounge.
Check out the pictures Judd shared from their trip and then we can all be upset that we weren’t hanging out somewhere much warmer like that.

Okay, well they’re mostly here. Big Brother Canada is teasing viewers with a mystery 15th guest that’s generating a lot of speculation but little concrete info. What we do know so far is the name, bios, pics, and
favorite ice cream flavors of the first 14 HGs.
The Big Brother Canada cast is young with the average age at 26 and the youngest at 20 with Rachelle Diamond, a student. The oldest jumps up to 43 with Paul Jackson, a motivational speaker, and he’s there by more than a decade of separation. Let’s see if his silver tongue can overcome the age gap to keep him in the game and the kids away from ending up in a van down by the river.
Here’s a quick glimpse of the new Big Brother Canada cast. See the full list of bios & pics here at our BBCAN site. The new season premieres on Slice March 5, 2014 at 9PM and yes, we’re expecting to be able to watch from the US again this year. More details on that as they become available.

We had a blast covering Big Brother Canada on our other site last year and are looking forward to doing it again this season. Yes, it requires some streaming and workarounds since Feeds are geo-restricted, but where there’s a will there’s a way, folks. We’ll share details soon on how you too can watch Big Brother Canada from the US.
Since production up there had to change locations they built an entirely new house for the 2014 season and hopefully beyond barring any other venue changes. With new construction comes new opportunities and the chance to build upon, literally!, what they learned last season.
The new house looks amazing and offers a lot of cool features we’d love to see on Big Brother 16 if they had the chance to do some extensive remodeling, though I’d expect the house’s physical layout to be fixed again.
The new backyard is smaller, but made up for that by moving the pool out of the way. The bathroom looks great but again only has one toilet (what gives with this sadistic designers?). I’m not such a fan of the kitchen with its circular, Star Trek inspired layout, but we’ll see how it works once it’s in action next week.
The one, giant bedroom would drive me nuts. BBUS uses the room divisions for sneaky chatter and plotting which they’d lose here. Plus just imagine getting one snoring HG in the mix. Uggggh!
