78 Days Supersized length

Here we go, folks, Thanks to Big Brother Canada 5 runner-up Karen Singbeil we have some “SUPERSIZED” news for this upcoming season 8 starting next month. In case you forget about Karen she was the season 5 houseguest that hated Kevin Martin more than I did. She also puked in the smoke pit for which I give her 2 thumbs up and a bottle of Kraken.

According to Actra Toronto, the 8th Season of BBCAN runs from March 4th to May 21st. A whopping 78 days! (11 weeks 1 day) Blowing away the previous duration champ season 4 by… 1 day?

Compared to Big Brother Canada season 1-7
BBCAN 1 – 71 days Feb 27, 2013, to May 2
BBCAN 2 – 71 days March 5, 2014, to May 8
BBCAN 3 – 70 days March 23, 2015, to May 27
BBCAN 4 – 77 days March 2, 2016, to May 12
BBCAN 5 – 69 days March 15, 2017, to May 18
BBCAN 6 – 69 days March 3, 2018, to May 10
BBCAN 7 – 64 days March 6, 2019, to May 9

Hmmm.. so Supersized!

Let's hope the cast is good enough to carry the season for a longer duration then!

I remember BBUS having the days go into the 90's so 78 doesn't even seem like a lot How little did it used to be?

Definitely assuming we get at least 18, maybe 20 people then. Returnees or not (but also hopefully returnees) should be pretty cool

Edit: Oh I just saw the days are listed in the OP nnnn. Yeah so it's actually barely more tho

BBCAN has always been 10-11 weeks per season, so this isn't surprising; but maybe the 78 days thing is just a rouse for a longer season.

78 days only counts the number of days the show will air. HG's are typically in the house several days before the premiere episode.

Actually Kingston, I hate to disagree with you, but the 78 days does include the days before the premiere.

BB21 (US) was 99 days including the week before the season premiered (13 weeks on-air, 14 weeks of the game).
