The fourth season of Big Brother Canada premiered March 2 at 9pm, but the pre-season buzz kicked off before that.. on February 23, they revealed the first of likely many twists: viewers can vote for two international BB alumni to enter the habitat, one male and one female, presumably as full-fledged competing hamsters
Those in the running were USA's BB5 and BB7 Jase Wirey versus Australia's BB10 winner Tim Dormer, and Italy's Veronica Graf from Grande Fratello 13 versus UK's Nikki Grahame from BB7, 16 and Ultimate BB.. Tim and Nikki were huge fan favorites from their respective seasons - they won and entered the habitat on March 3
Day 1 move-in premiere was taped February 26, and the next twist came along already: Philippe's brother Nicholas joined the cast! See notes below
Live feeds started after the March 3 eviction show airs.. they stream free from the show's official site.. use Hide My Ass to watch from outside Canada - it's safe, secure, with great customer service for questions or problems, and it's super easy to set up.. be wary of free VPNs as they can contain viruses, spyware, malware, or open your device as a conduit for other content without your knowledge or permission
@UGotBronx is once again doing real-time feeds updates for Hamsterwatch Forum
Air shows on Global are Sundays 7pm, Wednesdays 9pm, and eviction Thursdays 8pm.. evictions are once again being taped early - as always, I'll post spoilers on my Twitter when/if I get them.. After Dark airs every night on Slice.. Side Show airs Fridays at 10pm on Slice with Arisa Cox, Peter Brown, and Sarah Hanlon
Air shows outside Canada several links for live streams are posted under Quick Links & Bookmarks to your left - links are subject to change.. if you have Roku you can add CanadaTV from the Roku channel store for $2/month, which includes Global Toronto for live air shows, plus Global BC for a replay three hours later.. shop Roku at Amazon - I just got this Roku TV and it's pretty damn cool
Archived air shows are viewable on the show's site with VPN.. various uploaders post them on various video sites - I tweet links to those if/when I see them
Premiere notes They entered in three groups (sans Nicholas - he came in later), and Dallas was the first to enter - that's the kiss of death for all Canada and USA seasons so far.. an audience member stormed the stage and ran through the doors before the third group went in, causing a huge delay and re-do's, and probably much nervousing for those waiting to go in as well as for those already inside
Philippe and Nicholas are in the house together, playing as one hamster: they'll get one vote, they'll share HOH if they win, and if/when they're nominated or evicted, they'll do that together too.. UK and Australia have done this often with siblings, twins, couples, but power in those Big Brothers isn't decided by competitions.. the brothers will alternate weeks for playing comps - Nicholas is up first for that, as decided by rock/paper/scissors.. all the hamsters voted on first HOH comp results before they started it: they voted Nicholas most likely to win (if he doesn't, he gets a night in solitary - alone or with Philippe, I'm not sure), and they voted Joel most likely to drop first (if he doesn't, he gets first noms immunity)
Your cast is listed below along with my rush-to-judgment first impressions.. video clips were posted by ET Canada: batch one - batch two - four wildcards - house tour
Cassandra Shahinfar - 12th evicted, juror
22 - Winnipeg, MB - social media strategist
She plans to befriend everyone and said her name means "seducer of all men." That combined with her wishing she could have a bottomless bottle of wine in there means she could be our designated Drunk Girl - hopefully BB won't block all the booze deliveries this year.
Christine Kelsey - 3rd evicted
47 - Vancouver, BC - housekeeper
The token "older lady" is planning the same lay-low-early strategy as Ramsey and Philippe, but she also says she can be loud and people "can't handle" her. Hopefully she can reel it in and won't end up like Risha, whose slot in the casting formula she's filling. She'll probably jump when she hears Kelsey's Diary calls.
Dallas Cormier - 5th evicted
24- Saint John, NB - welder
This year's beard says he's the life of the party, loves his booze, and claims he's both too trusting and a sore loser, so his entertainment potential is through the roof. He's a superfan of BB Canada and USA (feedster? probably not), and he's yet another member of the No Math Club.
Jared Kesler - 9th evicted, juror
24 - Winnipeg, MB - pipeline worker
He seems like a guy's guy, but a nice guy, and he named Emmett and Jon as fave alums. Normally I'd say he might be too nice to go the distance but this is Canada, and those two did pretty well. He says he won't do well with memory comps, so he better cozy up with somebody who will.
Joel Lefevre - 11th evicted, juror
33 - Edmonton, AB - actor
He actually describes himself as quirky and he looks the part, and he seems to be here to fill the USA formula spot formerly successfully occupied by Ian and Steve, yet he says he'll do better on physical comps than mental - hmm. He used to struggle with anxiety and depression, so he could be in trouble if he sticks around long.
Kelsey Faith - 4th evicted Revived - 2nd place
25 - Calgary, AB - flight attendant
Her strategy is no strategy, have fun and enjoy the experience, and she knows next to nothing about the show. Those things always sound bad but they can pay off sometimes. I don't know where she flight attends but she's worked with elephants in Thailand, so she might have some good stories. She shares Willow's last name and Calgary base, but doesn't appear to be related.
Loveita Adams - 4th evicted
25 - Fort McMurray, AB - skincare entrepreneur
With her own company, she seems to be here to fill the Neda/Naeha slot, but she named Brittnee as her hamster role model. She plans to overplay, i.e. "make as many promises as possible" which might not work out too well, but then again it might: she says she'll be good at both physical and mental comps, particularly endurance.
Maddy Pavle - 8th evicted, juror
21 - Vancouver, BC - server
She's got no strategy and says she'll fail mental comps, especially if math is involved. Jillian is her BB Canada idol, but she might not have as much upstairs as Jill. She's the type I think of as "filler" for the exploitable eye candy and possible/probable showmance role, and some of them have gone far.
Mitchell Moffitt - 6th evicted, juror
27 - Guelph, ON - YouTuber
His YouTubing is engaging pop science videos with a lot of views, rather than dingbat "look at me" stuff. He does those with his boyfriend of nine years, so if Raul's attracted to Mitch, he'll likely be out of luck. He knows adaptability is key in BB, so he's already ahead of most of them.
Nikki Grahame - 10th evicted, juror
33 - UK Big Brother 7, 16, and Ultimate BB
She's known for drama and hissy-fits both in and out of the Diary Room, and was such a fan favorite that despite not winning, she came back for two more BB seasons after her first, and got her own show out of it. In a word: feeds gold.
Paige Distranski - 1st evicted
19 - Thunder Bay, ON - vet tech assistant
She's only 19 and her cat is 16 - let that sink in. She thinks her background of trapping and hunting prepared her for BB.. okay. She's yet another cute girl who says math comps will be her downfall. She loves Gary, and she loves Canada because everyone is so nice. She might be the "who?" hamster or the one with winning hair disasters - maybe both.
Philippe & Nicholas Paquette - season winners
21 & 20 - Ottawa, ON - university students
Update There's two of 'em! Following is my take on Philippe - we didn't get any pre-show info for Nicholas.
His bio says student but he says well-known club DJ, and he also says he's "pretty successful with the women" and hopes to be the villain. I hope he's not as arrogant as he sounds, but I'm not hopeful. He plans to throw a lot of comps, which might not be easy to do with this group, and doubly so since he says he's bad at puzzles. He says he'll be ready for a showmance around Day 42 because girls are trouble for him and can't be controlled - huh?
Raul Manriquez - 7th evicted, juror
21 - Calgary, AB - fashion stylist
He doesn't have a strategy and doesn't want a strategy, and he's here for the experience. His hamster idol is Kenny because "he's just so hot" and he hopes there isn't a guy for him to fall in love with because he forgets everything else when he's in love.. that could be fun for us. He too fears mental comps - this isn't looking like a brainiacs season.
Ramsey Aburaneh - self-evicted between 7th and 8th evictions
26 - Toronto, ON - digital marketing
He plans to lay low early on and then rev it up later, which always looks good on paper but doesn't always pan out, and he plans to throw some physical comps. It might be hard for him to downplay his athleticism as much as he plans to, since sports might be his main conversation topic. He didn't know about the show before friends (or recruiter?) sent him to a casting call.
Sharry Ash - 2nd evicted
30 - Toronto, ON - customer service supervisor
She sounds brighter than some of them but that could also just be a bit of maturity over the adolescent herd, as she too is afraid of memory comps. I like that she plans to stay flexible strategy-wise, as that's the only strategy that's foolproof in there. She's got a girlfriend of two years plus who's a BB superfan, and says she wears her emotions on her sleeve - hooray for drama potential!
Tim Dormer - 13th evicted, juror
31 - Australia Big Brother 10 (winner)
He's known for winning BBAU, which is decided by viewer votes, and he's sure to be a fan favorite. He'll bring shenanigans and onesies, and he'll be sure to keep the feeds hopping.
Jase Wirey - didn't make it in
40 - USA Big Brother 5 and 7
He was the first ever to be backdoored and is also known for his reaction to the BB5 switching twins reveal, and for his Zoolanderesque mirror-face. He was fun feeds on his first round, but not so much on his second.
Veronica Graf - didn't make it in
30 - Italy Grande Fratello 13
She's known for posing in Playboy, and I don't know what else.
Reality RallyThe annual Reality Rally ran April 8 and 9, with pre-rally events starting Thursday night, April 7.. the Rally benefits Michelle's Place, a Southern California breast cancer support center, and brings together reality fans with reality stars from various shows, including a lot of Big Brother USA and Canada alumni
Click for more info about Reality Rally, and to donate on behalf of your chosen hamster
While you're at it, please consider also throwing a few bucks to our own @cj_thumper if you can.. she's a Hamsterwatcher extraordinaire who's currently battling the disease, which is causing financial hardship along with all the other crap cancer brings
Many of the Rally formal and informal events were live-streamed - just click the buttons when they show "Live" to watch via Periscope.. streams will be archived at the same button(s) for 24 hours, and permanently archived here

Gran Hermano USUSA's second Big Brother kicked off on January 10, featuring 14 Spanish-speaking American hamsters, each going for a $250,000 prize at the end of three months.. they used the international style of gameplay, where hamsters nominate among themselves and viewers vote to evict
Congrats to Pedro Orta, representing Puerto Rican heritage, who won the debut season on April 10!
Gran Hermano US aired on Telemundo twice a week: nominations on Wednesdays at 7pm/6 Central, and evictions on Sundays at 8pm/7 Central.. they also have a daily highlights show airing Mondays thru Fridays at midnight/11pm Central.. Giselle Blondet hosted the live shows
But here's the best part: they had free 24/7 feeds! You can watch anytime on Telemundo's site, and you can meet the cast here - most browsers have a translate option.. while many or most of the hamsters are likely bilingual, they have a strict no English rule, but certain phrases sneak in here and there anyway (since when do hamsters follow rules?).. if you don't speak Spanish, you can still pick up a lot from body language and voice tone, and fights will definitely be good
Interestingly, the feeds kicked off as the hamsters moved in and held their get-to-know-you introductions, champagne toasts, and made sleeping arrangements, and their first HOH comp was live on the feeds on Tuesday 1/12 - it can be done! The feeds are geoblocked but once again, Hide My Ass will fix that if you're outside the US - just set to a US server
Celebrity Big BrotherEmma Willis welcomed 16 new and notorious hamsters into the UK habitat on January 5 for another round of Celebrity BB.. still no 24/7 feeds, but BOTS is back and they'll be doing more "live from the house" streams this season than they have in the past.. here are your links to watch the air shows live:
Use Hide My Ass to watch from outside the UK.. there are loads of other VPNs out there but I use and recommend HMA because it's safe, secure, and easy to use (just select a UK server), available for multiple platforms, plus they have great customer service for questions or problems.. I get a small commission if you sign up using my link, so thanks in advance
You can watch live at Channel 5's online live stream link.. shows are usually daily but check the air show schedule - remember UK time is 8 hours ahead of Pacific and 5 hours ahead of Eastern.. the official site has archive air shows and talk shows, highlights, previews, and info.. also, you'll find a couple Youtube uploaders in Links of the Day below
The hamsters in the order they entered the habitat and their main claim to "fame" are as follows.. many of them are also known for scandals of one type or another, Google is your friend

Johnny Partridge - actor, EastEnders - 8th evicted

Feeds were streamed by CBS, and Flashback remains accessible via All Access subscription. Call 888-274-5343 for account help, including cancellation.
CBS shows were Sundays 8pm, Wednesdays 8pm, eviction Thursdays 9pm (Global in Canada).
Big Brother After Dark was on POP (formerly TVGN). It airs Monday, Tuesday 11pm-2am; Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday midnight-2am; Thursday 1am-3am. The aired blocks are recorded earlier on the same night.
The CBS app (by CBS Interactive) plays BB air shows and other CBS shows, but not feeds. Use your browser to watch feeds on mobile devices. The same All Access link used to subscribe will lead to the feeds viewing page if you're already signed up.
Liz and Julia had to survive five evictions in order to play separately as individuals, which they did, with Julia officially entering the game on Day 43. They switched places every few days. They had a limited time in Diary to change clothes, adjust their appearance, and exchange info. The non-playing twin was sequestered in a 'house,' possibly the jury house.
BB17 prizes were the same: $500k for the winner and $50k for 2nd place. Stipend for the others is $1,000 per week again, including pre-show hotel and jury sequester. Recruits or those with established pre-season fan bases might get more.
The habitat has 80 HD cameras (up four) and over 100 microphones.
The recorded in-house announcements are the voice of producer Don Wollman.
