This is a positive change as Global TV is a larger network that is available to […]
Casting for Big Brother Canada began on August 1st, 2012, where reality TV hopefuls were able to submit their audition video online. Today marked the first day for the in-person casting call auditions where the first stop in the cross Canada casting process was held at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
The Big Brother Canada casting directors are looking to hand pick individuals to create a diverse cast, much like cast we have seen on the 14 seasons the US edition of Big Brother.
What the casting directors are looking for:
Big Brother Canada is in search of extroverts, conformists, risk takers, adventurers, romantics, leaders, plotters and planners, and those who don’t mind a little healthy competition. If you’re ready to strategize with fellow Canadians living in a house packed with cameras watching your every move, Big Brother Canada wants to hear from you.
If you live in Canada, the Big Brother Canada casting calls are starting soon in a city near you. Beginning in Vancouver, B.C., on September 23rd, the casting directors will be setting up to interview you in 5 cities across Canada over following 3 weeks. If you already submitted your online application or if you were waiting to audition live, then this is your opportunity to meet with casting directors to show them why you deserve to be cast.
The casting directors have laid out some rules for you to follow for you to be at the top of your game, so don’t mess up your shot! Here are the rules / suggestions to help make you not look like a fool:
- DO NOT line up before 6am. Seriously, they’ll send you away, so why bother getting up earlier than you need to?
- AVOID excess baggage, in particular, chairs. Since you aren’t arriving before 6am you really shouldn’t need to bring seating. Plus it’s a fire hazard and the last thing you want is to be hauled off because you didn’t follow the fire regulations!
