The premiere of the first season of Big Brother Canada is just around the corner with a tentative date set for February 18th, 2013. With the completion of the BB Canada casting calls the only other major item to finish is the house in which the house guests will live. Construction of the Big Brother Canada house has begun in a Mississauga, Ontario studio and we are now getting the very FIRST LOOK inside the house that 14 strangers will compete to win the $100,000 grand prize. Below is the video of Entertainment Tonight (ET) Canada giving us the first glimpse of the BB house and the progress of the construction. Much like the US version, the Big Brother Canada house is being built on set. The house guests will have an indoor backyard that will simulate the times of day through a “soft box” that will cast light and shadows to mimic the sun. I believe it will make the house guests time inside the house that much harder without fresh air ability to lay out and suntan but with a February start date the Ontario weather would still be too cold for that any ways. This backyard will be more like ABC’s The Glass House rather than the open air backyard that the Big Brother US house guests enjoy. In the video the Production Designer, Peter Faragher, describes the construction process and details about the house. In addition, to the details about the house we learn that just outside the house there is a large space set aside for the audience of the live shows.
Here are a bunch more photos of the Big Brother Canada house while it is still under construction.
