Default So i've just watched my first episode of BB Canada

I honestly don't know if i'm going to get into this or not. It's very, very cheesy! It's like when Channel 5 tried to go down this route with Power Trip but Canada have managed to do it correctly...However it's still super corny.

The cast aren't exactly ground breaking either like 1 or 2 stand out and peak my interest but on first impression 90% are just vanilla.

I do have a massive BB shaped whole in my life and find Canadian accents hilarious so i thought this may be the perfect replacement but so far i'm not sold on this.

Honest opinions is it worth sticking with? NO SPOILERS PLEASE.

In regards to Episode 1 how bored must the audience have been when the 1st HG entered and was searching for the vito thing...That was probably about an hour of them just sitting there until the BB voice over would have had to come on and tell him where to look

I was in your position six years ago, gave the premiere of BB1 a watch cause it was new and the house looked nice, and within three weeks I’d fallen in love with the format. I then ended up watching almost all the old BBUS seasons that summer the rest is history as they say!

It will take a lot of getting used to, but BBCan’s production (as cheesy as it can be) is far and away the best in the franchise. Whether or not this season will be worth sticking with remains to be seen but some of the older ones are definitely worth a watch!

I’d recommend watching some of the live feeds to help entice you in, they’re so easy to access and are like a throwback to the good old BBUK days

Im gonna give it till episode 3 and see how i go, the first time i watched BBUK i thought it was ****e (granted this was BB1 where they were looking after chickens and cooking all day lol) but stuck with that and 19 years on im still an obsessed BB geek so.

How has this first week been so far? (no spoilers)

I’d leave it till episode 5 if I were you, ep 3 will be an HoH/Noms episode so you may as well see the full week out. But seriously, watch some of the feeds...that’s the best way to get invested in a season

Too early to answer that really as there’s only been two episodes, but I enjoyed the second one

Try to stick with it, it's good once you get used to it!

Seasons 1-4 is a lot better stretch than 5-current tho
