Watch Big Brother Canada from outside Canada.

Hi all,  while I personally don't plan on watching Big Brother Canada, which started on Wednesday, I thought I'd share with you my technique for watching the episodes and live feeds online since I live outside Canada and the video on the site is restricted to Canada only.  The feeds are FREE (ad supported) so for those tight on cash its a way to enjoy the Big Brother experience and save a few $$.  Big Brother Canada will last about 10 weeks.

I use a site - plugin called Hola to enable my computer / browser (in my case I am using firefox but it works with Chrome and I believe IE as well) to move about the Canadian web page for Big Brother Canada.  My instructions are for someone using Windows 7 as well - your mileage may vary with other operating systems.  But Hola has options for MANY operating systems on their site.  Without Hola I get a message telling me the content is restricted when I try to view videos.

Here are the 'simple' steps.  I'm not offering tech support - just wanted to pass this on for those with the urge to see whats going on in the Great White North on its second season of Big Brother.

Step 1 - get Hola via this link Sign Up For Hola.

Step 2 - once you have signed up - you can add the unblocking rule via this link: Unblock

Step 3 - Finally if you aren't already on the site via the step above - you should be able to now go to the following and start watching videos including the episodes and the free live feeds: Big Brother Canada Official Site.


By the way, Hola is a great little way to watch LOADS of content that is normally restricted by region.  I used it last year to watch Big Brother Austrailia as well.

On Big Brother 16 - casting continues - you can see all open casting calls listed here: Big Brother Casting Calls.


#BB16 casting & open calls have begun

Tired of merely watching and talking about Big Brother? Now's your chance to live it. Big Brother 16 casting and open calls have begun.

It's an on-line application process at the following site: Submissions are due by April 4, 2014, including a video you'll need to make of yourself up to three minutes long.

Open casting calls have been held so far in Henderson, Nevada and Savannah, Georgia. At this writing, no additional cities have been announced -- but check the site regularly for an open casting call near you.


Evel Dick says Big Brother is still casting.

Thanks to HamsterDame's tweet  - I saw a re-post from Evel Dick's Myspace Page over on"Big Brother Game" (you following me?).  Dick (BB8) writes about a lot of stuff - the part I found interesting was his comment that Big Brother is still looking to cast at least one person.

Read on but be forewarned - Dick still has a potty mouth! ;)


Final thoughts on casting for this season…

I was very disappointed to hear that BB put out a last minute and I mean LAST FUCKING SECOND, call for cast members, I think today…

This means someone they wanted on the show was either vetoed by the upper suits, or someone or someone’s really fucked up right at the end (dumb mother fuckers) but it means that a week before they are to be sequestered that some random last minute choices will be made. I hate that. Not only because it took me 3 fucking years to get on the god damn show and these jerk off’s will get the same opportunity I worked so hard to get in 155 weeks less time, but because these choices are typically clueless about the show, period. They will be stumbling and bumbling around the internet and will be checking sites that promise to make you a reality star and end up going just because it is within walking distance of their job at the gym or because they are a toilet paper changing engineer in the building already, so between the fat guy they need to spray half a can of Lysol because the smell of his shit is creeping out of the toilet and the receptionist in the first office past out due to being overwhelmed by shit smell and the drunk guy that pissed all over the floor, they will go and see if they can get a free summer vacation on tv….

UUUuuuuuuughhhhh! So much goes into the entire process, I find it hard to believe they can find anyone worth a shit in a week, but they do it almost every year. I hear they are looking for a tattooed guy with fucked up hair and a shitty attitude…. where do they come up with this shit?


Same of Dick eh?  I hated/loved him on the show.  He was the best for telling us what was on his mind.

So what do ya think?  I think he has a point - it always sucks when you hear how many people are 'cast' for the show and have never even heard of it - or know how it is played - however there have also been some pretty decent players that figure it out as they go along and do really well.

Thanks to HamsterDame for catching the post by Big Brother Game and thanks to Dick for still taking the time to fill us in on whats up in the Big Brother world!

and now shameless plug time.... don't forget you can sign up now for the live feeds.  The "Early Bird" special is running now through July 7th and allows you to sign up for the entire season of the feeds for one low cost of $29.99.  That is the best deal running out there and all the Big Brother sites have the same deal.  So pick your FAVORITE site (me me!  pick me!) and click on the links to get your live feeds for the season.  Starting July 8th the only prices available will be $14.99 a month or $39.99 for 3 months - so you save a minimum of $10 by signing up now!  Every sign up is appreciated!
