Big Brother Canada 9 Premieres Tonight: Meet The Cast

Following the removal of Eth*n before the show even began filming, Big Brother Canada 9 has continued to make headlines. With the show premiering tonight at 7pm/EST I wanted to introduce the cast.

Competitors are competing for $100,000, another 10K from Sunlight, Grilling equipment and a 2 person vacation and will follow the same (but not racist) guidelines of the US Big Brother format with a team twist.

LET’S MEET THE CAST!

Austin Dookwah

Age: 23
Hometown: Newmarket, Ont.
Occupation: Realtor/model

“My strategy is to lay low and act unassuming at the beginning – then school everyone in the memory comps toward the end.”

Beth Bieda

Age: 27
Hometown: Tomahawk, Alta.
Occupation: Homeless support worker

“My strategy is to find a ride or die on day one! I’ll probably lay more low at the beginning, but then pull a Tyler (from Big Brother U.S.) and have secret alliances around the house. And like Paras or Mitch, make other people do my dirty work.”

Breydon White

Age: 23
Hometown: Calgary, Alta.
Occupation: Anthropology Student

“My strategy is to be liked so much by everyone that they can’t get rid of me. Also, to be a master manipulator.”

Kyle Moore

Age: 26
Hometown: Red Deer, Alta.
Occupation: Unemployed Hockey Coach

“My plan is to make as many connections as possible and dominate the competitions.”

Josh Farnworth

Age: 30
Hometown: New Westminster, B.C.
Occupation: Film production co-ordinator

“My strategy is to start a four-person secret alliance with a potential showmance in the alliance.”

Jedson Tavernier

Age: 25
Hometown: Aurora, Ont.
Occupation: Personal trainer

“My strategy is to keep my educational background a secret and get into a strong, undercover alliance of four to five people. Win when necessary, but not every time (avoid being a target). Work a strong social game, play on emotions of others, try to be ‘good’ with many players. Appear to struggle in mental competitions early in the game. Explore a low-key showmance if the opportunity presents itself.”

Julie Vu

Age: 28
Hometown: Vancouver
Occupation: Social media influencer

“My strategy going into the house is be extra friendly, find real common interest with everyone, form a four-person alliance, and dumbing myself down.”

Kiefer Collison

Age: 32
Hometown: Old Massett, B.C.
Occupation: Radio host

“I will be very social. Try to build relationships with other houseguests.”

Latoya Anderson

Age: 34
Hometown: Pickering, Ont.
Occupation: Police officer

“I’m going undercover. The houseguests will not know I’m a police officer and that I have a degree in criminology. I will be a fashionista/fashion designer. I plan on forming more than one alliance and hopefully gaining the trust of most of the house.”

Rohan Kapoor

Age: 26
Hometown: Toronto
Occupation: Strategic partnerships manager

“My strategy is to create an alliance with five people, all with different skill sets. I plan to be quite active in the first half of the game by destroying the plays and calling the shots.”

Tychon Carter-Newman

Age: 29
Hometown: Montreal
Occupation: Urban planner

“My strategy is to be in a co-ed alliance balanced with social, physical, and mental strengths. Also, I want to make sure I establish a relationship with everyone.”

Tera Gillen-Petrozzi

Age: 37
Hometown: LaSalle, Ont.
Occupation: Mom/spin instructor

“If the houseguests think I’m a super positive, vertically-challenged mom having a mid-life crisis, perfect! The less threatening I appear, the easier it will be to walk away with the cash.”

Tina Thistle

Age: 42
Hometown: Paradise, N.L.
Occupation: Graphic designer

“My strategy is to be the friendly Newfoundlander! I will also want to really meet and size up the competition first, then my strategy will evolve from there.”

Victoria Woghiren

Age: 27
Hometown: Hamilton
Occupation: Youth advocate

“My strategy is to be fun, present, and approachable. I plan to make a female bestie, and divide and conquer. I will also find the strongest guy in the house and see if they want to secretly work together.”

And again, I’m bummed I didn’t make the cut this year (because my audition was OUTSTANDING IMO) but I am excited to support the cast, and the show. Who are you rooting for?
