Big Brother Canada
Big Brother is a television reality game show based on the original Dutch TV series of the same name, created by producer John de Mol in 1997.The show is titled Big Brother Canada to differentiate from the American version of the franchise, which airs in Canada during the summer. The series follows a group of contestants, known as HouseGuests, living together in a custom-built home under constant surveillance, while completely isolated from the outside world. The contestants are competing for a $100,000 grand prize, with weekly competitions and evictions determining who will win the show. The series takes its name from the character in George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984). With a French version and the United States version having aired in the country, Canada officially received its own English version of the series in 2013. The show was met with commercial success, and has gone on to become a hit for its parent network.
