First Look at the Big Brother Canada 9 Cast! “TEAM DESTINY Vs TEAM DEFENDER”


Today Big Brother Canada released the all new cast of house guests. No all-stars season this year for Brother Canada, which I am happy to see after just coming off the Big Brother US all-stars season. So far there are going to be 14 new house guests entering the BBCAN house, unless there are any other newbies or alumni thrown in the mix after the fact. I’m pretty sure Simon said Emmett was going to be on this season so we’ll have to wait to see if the pantry is fully stocked with protein to see if that rumor is true or not!

“FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, HOUSEGUESTS WILL BE COMPETING IN TEAMS TO START THE SEASON AND YOU WILL BE CHOOSING THE TEAM CAPTAINS!

What is your strategy going into the house?
My strategy is to lay low and act unassuming at the beginning – then school everyone in the memory comps toward the end.

Find a ride or die on day one! I’ll probably lay more low at the beginning, but then pull a Tyler (from Big Brother U.S.) and have secret alliances around the house. And like Paras or Mitch, make other people do my dirty work.

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?
Because I’m real! I’m always Beth and I think being genuine often takes me places. I also think I’m a funny, smart gal who’s got a social justice side to me that’s great for Canadians fighting to be heard.

How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?
As a woman who was 100% herself who made Canadians smile during this difficult time in history. Oh, and as BBCAN9’s winner, of course!

For doing hot girl stuff and doing big moves.

1. Keep my educational background a secret
2. Get into a strong, undercover alliance of four to five people
3. Win when necessary, but not every time (avoid being a target)
4. Work a strong social game, play on emotions of others, try to be “good” with many players
5. Appear to struggle in mental competitions early in the game
6. Explore a low key showmance if the opportunity presents itself

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?
I think I was chosen because of the energy I will bring into the house and my overall potential. I consider myself very strong in all three pillars of the game (physical/social/mental). Also my physical appearance and willingness to entertain a showmance.

What is your strategy going into the house?
My strategy going into the house is be extra friendly, find real common interest with everyone, form a four person alliance, and dumbing myself down .

I think I was selected to be on BBCAN9 because I’m the face of diversity: Asian transgender woman. You don’t get more diverse than that (and my sassy personality of course).

Being away from family, friends, and of course social media. Being on slop! I love food.

As an icon, legend, queen, underdog, and competition beast.


KIEFER COLLISON
AGE: 31

I hope to be seen as a funny, heart-on-his sleeve kind of guy, and someone who respects the game. And as a beast!

OCCUPATION: POLICE OFFICER
– This ambitious police officer will make nice with the houseguests and build alliances to make it to the top, all while undercover as a fashion designer.

Relationship Status: Single

What is your strategy going into the house?
Going undercover. The houseguests will not know I’m a police officer and that I have a degree in criminology. I will be a fashionista/fashion designer. I plan on forming more than one alliance and hopefully gaining the trust of most of the house.

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?
Because I’m multifaceted and wear many hats. There are so many different sides to me, which most people wouldn’t suspect. I’m also outgoing, ambitious, likeable, and competitive!

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?
Being disconnected from family, friends, and the outside world. Also being deceitful – I want to represent well but I also want to play the game hard and win! I want to do whatever it takes to win while still maintaining my integrity.

– This free-spirited married mom of two is ready to show women and moms everywhere that it is never too late to follow her dreams to become the next BBCAN winner.

Relationship Status: Married with children

What is your strategy going into the house?
If the houseguests think I’m a super positive, vertically-challenged-mom-having a mid-life crisis, perfect! The less threatening I appear, the easier it will be to walk away with the cash.

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?
I have a big personality and the determination of a bull. I’m not afraid to go after what I want and I genuinely try to make the best of any situation. I think after this year Canada deserves some good vibes, and the reminder that it’s never too late to go after your dreams.

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?
Missing my kids and slop! It looks terrible and I turn into an absolute monster when I’m hangry.

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?
Honestly? I have no idea! But I am glad they did ?. I’m still in shock that this is actually happening!

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?
Morally, the backstabbing and lying…but hey, it’s got to be done. And personally, being away from family and friends.

How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?
I hope to be one of the well-liked players – someone you’d want to have a beer and hang out with. The fun-loving, middle-aged Newfoundlander, who stepped outside of her comfort zone to have an experience of a lifetime, and take on the Big Brother Canada adventure!

HOMETOWN: MONTREAL, QUEBEC

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?

Not being able to talk to my friends and family. I pretty much talk to them every day.

Relationship Status: In a relationship

What is your strategy going into the house?
My strategy is to be fun, present, and approachable. I plan to make a female bestie, and divide and conquer. I will also find the strongest guy in the house and see if they want to secretly work together.

Why do you think you were selected to be on BBCAN9?
I think I was selected because I am unique, loud, ambitious, and can do anything I put my mind to! I stand out in a crowd, and I am not scared to speak my mind. I know the game and I am ready to play!

What part of the Big Brother Canada experience do you think will be the hardest for you?
The hardest part will be the disconnect from the world. I am constantly on my phone! I will miss my dog, boyfriend, family, and friends so much. I am very social and love to party so it will be hard to be in one place for so long!

How do you want people to remember you as a player on BBCAN?

I want to be remembered as the fearless and deserving winner of Big Brother Canada Season 9! I want to be remembered as strategic, optimistic, and as the manipulation queen I really am. I also brought a record amount of clothing and accessories, so it would be so cool if Canada appreciated that!

Simon

9 from Alberta and Ontario….

another name

Almost like they said ‘damn we promised 50% BIPOC… quick, grab the Ontario file, check the GTA. Don’t worry about the other 50%, we’ve got an Alberta file too.’
Joking. Sorta.
Almost as much as I’m sorta joking that the cast list looks like there’s a couple missing (aren’t there usually 16?)
Almost as much as I’m sorta joking that I look at their pictures, and if I think they’ll be a first week eviction nom (so evicted on the Thursday episode after the premiere), I don’t bother reading their profile.
Almost as much as… nope. not joking at all. This is the one… not a joke.
Viewer voting for team captains based on intro videos that are hyper produced for each houseguest to fit into the usual stereotype houseguest role, and therefore are usually nothing like the actual person’s personality… so stupid.

Chessie_K

Hey Simon. I see they have a few from your Province

Simon

Hey Chessie_K!

A few from BC. Nobody from Vancouver Island but KIEFER is from Haida Gwaii. Close enough, it will still garner him the OBB endorsement :)

As another name said looks like they went to the GTA (greater Toronto area) file and pulled 1/2 the cast. Then realized they didn’t have enough geo-diversity and pulled everyone from Alberta.

I’m going to try to do a kraken hour tonight with my first impressions of the cast.

Chessie_K

I did notice that half of the cast was from Ontario, now I know the reason why

another name

PREDICTION
One of this season’s new sponsors makes spirits.
And yet, they’ll still feed block most alcohol deliveries
cus Global gonna Global.

If you don’t find yourself on Team Defender or Team Destiny, ask Simon about joining Team Kraken.

Apparently twitter is already deep diving on cast members, and people are commenting on cast members.
GRAIN OF SALT:
Truth. Fiction. Don’t know if the current hubbabaloo is accurate, I haven’t triple sourced or done due dilligence, so I’m not going to repeat yet. I’m expecting at least one out of fourteen to have a serial killers dowry of skeletons in the closet… just figured we’d have to wait until the actual premiere to start hearing about it.
Only reporting that social media is still social media when it comes to cast reveals.
Remember the stanning and fangirling thrown at wannabeAquaman? Let’s all just not judge who they are by their photo and intro video until we’ve heard them on feeds for a few minutes. Because there’s likely going to be that one…

Simon

LOL “fangirling thrown at wannabeAquaman?”
I remember everyone on Twitter doing that!

another name

man, did he ever deep six those expectations.
I’m just thinking, during bbcan8 there was that ‘behavior we deem inappropriate will not be tolerated’ soundbite as statement of action in regard to the double toss.
Production has set that bar. If they fail in living up to their own mission statement, that’s on them.
Also, I still think there’s going to be a week 2 addition of two more houseguests to the cast to bring the total to 16. My personal thought is pick 2 of the 4 to go into the house. It’s a precedent that has been set in the past going as far back as season 2.

another name

Ethan appears to have been replaced by someone named Kyle on the BBCan9 cast.

yup he said rsscist homphobi thing

Sunshine Sparkle Face

OMG!!!! it’s MOTHER SPARKLES!!!!! PRINCESSJOULES!!!! I can’t believe it, ive been watching her videos on youtube for years, and always thought she should go on BBCan. i might have made a comment or two about it on her videos!!

greg

looks like they went over 50% BIPOC

Genesis

Kinda like good ol’ CBS with Love Island and having 3 out of the 5 couples being “African American”. Suffice it to say, the series was just a Gong Show. This woke stuff is really going full monty. BBCAN has so much potential but the powers that be keep getting in the way.

Wish they would replace Sideshow Bob as the host as the series needs fresh blood.

BB9000

Not Nice,
Man you suck!!!

LOL

Arisa doesnt believe in diversity of hairstyles

bb canada celeb

ethan is replaced now

Guy from Canada

Crap just flipped through the bios…..I met Julie Vu a few years ago in my group auditioning. She was like a wet blanket, kept carrying on about her sexual orientation instead of what she would bring to the show. I expect a boring jury/pre jury for them.

side note, ill be off sick from several weeks of this season, look forward to being more involved in the comments this year :)

Simon

Hey guy from Canada!

Looking forward to reading the comments. Anyone in the cast you are liking just from the bios?

Guy from Canada

Kiefer and Latoya are my top two picks. It’s a weird year, there isn’t anyone I hated from their bios like past years, but no one made me root for them otherwise. I’ll start feed watching his weekend and it may change though….
