Toronto, Canada – Following last night’s hell of a twist, Global is revealing the remaining 14 new houseguests entering the gates of the Big Brother Canada house on Wednesday, March 7 at 7 p.m. ET/PT. The Season 6 houseguests will feel like they’re walking on cloud nine upon arrival, but dark and fiery twists could be around the corner for some unlucky surprises.

This season’s cast includes a variety of angelic and devilish characters hailing from coast to coast, including a self-proclaimed fiery Latina from Vancouver; a business-minded socialite by day and party planner by night from Saskatoon; a type-A beauty who’s not afraid to speak her mind from Guelph; a self-professed “troll” and super-fan from Calgary; an athletic wine ambassador from Saint John; and a softy single dad oil rig worker from Trepassey, Newfoundland.

With this season’s houseguest revealed, fans will need to choose wisely among the four gate crashers vying for a spot in the house. Fans can continue to place their vote here for one girl and one guy to join the cast until polls close on March 8 at 2 p.m. ET. For additional voting details, please visit BigBrotherCanada.ca.
