This site is about the Big Brother 18 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why. Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

Canada's fifth Big Brother season has begun, hosted once again by Arisa Cox.. here's what you need to know:

Premiere was March 15 at 9pm Eastern, on Global in Canada

Air shows are Mondays 9pm, Wednesdays 9pm, and eviction Thursdays 8pm.. see "East coast air show streams" on left sidebar and/or watch my Twitter for links to stream the air shows live.. shows are viewable on the BB Canada site the day after they air

Air shows for Roku As of now, the CanadaTV channel for Roku still has one Global selection that runs East Coast airings - use the Global selection with purple logo and no location (the others are now geoblocked).. it costs $1.99 per month and can be added to your Roku here.. presumably, Canadians can still use this channel to watch Global programming from various timezones.. use my Amazon USA or Amazon Canada portals to shop Roku sticks or Roku TVs, or any Amazon shopping

Post-eviction talk show is Thursdays on Facebook Live

Feeds are free again - use Hide My Ass to watch from outside Canada.. 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 Canada 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.. HMA will also let you watch archived air shows on the BB Canada site

Feeds began March 16 after the first eviction show aired, meaning someone (Mark) got the boot before feeds began, a horrible Canada tradition.. feeds are at the BB Canada site.. there will be no After Dark show this season

The habitat is spectacular once again, with a space-age theme this time - see the house pics

Premiere taping and move-in was March 11.. see my Twitter for the spoilers - there weren't many

Winner's prize will be $100,000 cash, a 2017 Toyota 86 car, and $30,000 at The Brick.. second place gets $20,000.. additional sponsors (and probable comp themes) are Kraft peanut butter, Oreo cookies, Crest, ParticipACTION, and the Baywatch movie

Cast reveal was March 8 and 9, and a house tour was March 13 on ET Canada special

Real-time feeds updates and air show recaps will once again be available at Hamsterwatch Forum by @UGotBronx

Your cast is as follows.. find out more about them from their official bios and social media links, as well as interviews with, and Rob Cesternino Part 1 and Part 2.. the official show site has video interviews - use Hide My Ass to watch outside Canada

But first here's a reminder for friends and family of the new cast members

Andre "Dre" Gwenaelle
25 - Montreal, QC - Masters student

She describes herself as sassy and extra, which could mean she'll be good feeds, unless she doesn't live up to her own hype. She's worried about having to lie and about a messy house - uh oh.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

Bruno Ielo
33 - Ottawa, ON - Construction worker, dad of two
7th place, BB Canada 3

He's a pleasant enough guy with a strong competitive streak and pretty good BB strategy. He's mostly remembered for an injured thumb.

HOH 0 - Veto 1 - Nom 0

Casandra Shahinfar
23 - Winnipeg, MB - Marketing manager
4th place, BB Canada 4

Her game was part social strategy and part trainwreck, and she lost her mind a few times - that always makes for good feeds.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 1

Dallas Cormier
25 - Edmonton, AB (originally Saint John, NB) - Lobster fisherman and welder
12th place, BB Canada 4

He said some things he shouldn't have and he didn't like playing gummy bear noms, but he also surfed the stairs in a cactus/walrus suit.

Evicted 2nd - Day 13
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 1

Demetres Giannitsos
24 - Edson, AB - Oil field instrument tech

His official bio says it all: "This confident, self-professed beefcake nicknamed 'The Greek' loves to workout and grab attention from the ladies, but hes looking to align with fellow alpha males early," and his Twitter reads like BB18 Corey's did. I cannot.

HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Nom 1

Dillon Carman
30 - Madoc, ON - Heavyweight boxer

He actually is Canada's reigning heavyweight champ, nicknamed "Big Country", but apparently there's a rabbit-punch controversy involved. The workout zone will be crowded this year. He's also been a chess champ, which adds an intriguing twist to his resume.

HOH 0 - Veto 1 - Nom 1

Emily Hawkin
23 - Toronto, ON (originally Lindsay) - Musician and server

She says she's a weirdo and might compare herself to Talla - oh Emily, those are big, hard-to-maneuver-stairs shoes to fill.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 1

Gary Levy
25 - Ajax, ON (originally Toronto) - Artist
2nd place, BB Canada 1

He was evicted 8th, then revived, then lost the season by an error that added the phrase "getting Topazed" to our lexicon. He went on to do the Side Show for a couple seasons, and I thought we'd seen the end of him.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

Ika Wong
32 - Thornhill, ON (originally Montego Bay, Jamaica) - Financial services manager, mom of two
12th place, BB Canada 2

She's remembered for shredding letters from home, but she'll likely bring some drama any way you slice it.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

Jackie McCurrach
22 - Port Coquitlam, BC - Pizza maker

Her bio says "fiery redhead" and "a guys' girl". Okay then. She plans on working out, learning to cook, making new friends, and creating An Experience. She could go far.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 1

Karen Singbeil
53 - Victoria, BC (originally Kansas City, MO) - Real estate broker, mom of three

Being in real estate, she should know "the art of the deal" but being the token older mom, she'll likely go out early.

HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

Kevin Martin
24 - Calgary, AB - Professional poker player
9th place, BB Canada 3

You know me, I'm all about the entertainment factor, and I don't think he brought much, especially without his showmance Pilar.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

Mark Chrysler
24 - Edmonton, AB - Bartender

He's that BBCan staple who will work out all the time, dominate physical comps, probably eat too much, and misplace his shirt often. Those guys tend to go far.
Update: Oops

1st evicted - Day 6
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 1

Neda Kalantar
25 - Vancouver, BC - Fashion stylist and entrepreneur
3rd place, BB Canada 2

She was a savvy player, maybe too savvy for her own good - she'll likely be an early target. Her finest, backstabbiest moment was throwing out the Have-nots' condiments.

HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

Sindy Nguyen
27 - Huntsville, ON (originally Toronto, ON) - Beauty queen
2nd and 7th evicted, BB Canada 2

Yes, we get it: WITH AN S! She was often annoying but her game was strong, between a lip-lock betrayal of Jordan and winning a brutal physical comp for revival, plus a challenging mental comp for immunity.

HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Nom 0

William Laprise Desbiens
23 - Trois-Rivieres, QC - Marketing student and blogger

Using three names in this setting is different - usually that's reserved for serial killers and adolescent actors. His first language is French and he has a heavy accent, so that could make information exchanges and whisper convos interesting.
Update: Turns out it's illegal since 1981 for women to take their husband's last name in Quebec when they get married, so many people born since then use both parents' names, unhyphenated. #TheMoreYouKnow

Celebrity Big Brother 19

Emma Willis welcomed 15 new and notorious hamsters into the pop-art UK habitat on January 3 for another round of Celebrity BB.. those 15 will fill 14 cast slots in an "All Stars and New Stars" format, with tasks and twists galore, as always.. still no 24/7 feeds, but BOTS is back and they'll be doing some "live from the house" streams again this season.. 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
