Less than 24 hours after the press release regarding the newly scheduled Big Brother Canada edition, John Brunton the executive producer says that he has already been overwhelmed with hopeful hosts and contestants.
The Chief Executive Officer of Insight Production, John Burton, says:
“What’s amazing we’ve just had the most bizarrely aggressive response since that press release went out yesterday. I think I’ve had 10 emails already from people that want to host the show, some known and others who have been in the news lately, and we’ve got hundreds of emails from people that want to be in the show. People have been sending photos in. Weird photos. I know Canadians are considered to be shy, but we definitely aren’t seeing that.”
Burton stated that the company had their first pre-production meeting about the new series on Thursday. He says that they are hoping to begin shooting early in 2013 at a location somewhere in Toronto. Burton continues saying that he is looking forward to casting and says that it is the absolute key to any reality TV show.
