Big Brother Canada Commercial – Best Strategy EVER!

The Big Brother Chilltown reality stars Mike “Boogie” Malin and Dr. Will Kirby are featured in another Big Brother Canada commercial. In this just released commercial, Mike and Will discuss Big Brother strategies and which strategy is the best ever.

Dr. Will Kirby: “As former Big Brother winners.. I feel like we have a duty to …we have an obligation to give the Big Brother Canada house guests some advice on how they can win the show.”
Mike “Boogie” Malin: “I couldn’t agree with you more.”
Dr. Will Kirby: “What do you think is the SINGLE best strategy to win the entire game?”
Mike “Boogie” Malin: “That’s a tough question because there are so many important aspects to the game. Um I think one important thing is that you have to leave your morals/ethics at the door. That sets the stage before you can even get into the strategy and then there’s the social strategy where you just kind of get along with everyone and be the fun person, the kind of person everyone likes. There’s the laid back strategy where you hide in the corner like you’re not even there.
Dr. Will Kirby: “Floater”

FIRST LOOK Inside The Big Brother Canada House!

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.
