This is great news for Canadians. I'm so glad they're going to have their own BB show now!

stupid timing to have it in Feb! That is the coldest month in Toronto, I can't imagine how they are going to work outdoor contests in subzero temperatures. They should have done it in the summer here, maybe May /June since the US one starts in July.

Don't you think they'll have a fake outdoor set like glass house?

Nice idea to have a Canadian version, but will the producers be able to find as many sociopathic scumbags as they do in the US?

I doubt it Yawnie than again, I mean I'm canadian and I've watched a few seasons of Big Brother US, started watching it with my cousin when she lived with me, sort of gets addictive but I don't think I could/ or would want to be on the show. Would be sort of neat though.

Hey! What are you saying, the US is full of sociopathic scumbags? You're either watching too much of our reality shows or C-Span.

February will be an interesting start! Parkas and snow boots for a visit to the backyard. Perhaps BBCan will just have a basement. Anyone have any idea where the house is going to be? If it is Toronto proper the Downsview industrial area would be my bet. Has a host been announced?

All I know is that there better be Timmy Ho's, Molson, Moose Blood and Maple Cookies. Also, if the NFL strike lasts long enough they can bring them into the BY for a game of hockey as a challenge!

Where can we watch the Canadian version here in the states? It'd be great if live feeds were available too!

Probably won't know any of that until it starts or close to starting. I am sure one of us will let you guys know where you can watch it from and if their is live feeds. I think it's only fair that you guys can watch it since us Canadians watch your version...lol

Well, I see from the house construction that the pool is inside and I'm sure it and the house will be heated. Doubt hey will go in for any of the "have-not cold showers crud" Grodner loves so much and you will get your fill of bikinis and skimpy suits.

I would imagine the outdoor area would be for doing what one does in the winter in Toronto (ice skating, curling, etc) which will make much more entertainment than a bunch of people lying in the sun doing nothing (just my opinion).

The best thing is it will (hopefully) be all people we have never seen before and regular people, not celebs!

I agree with you on that. If they want to have celebs, just make another BB for celebs, just like the UK.
