Big Brother is coming to Canada

Big Brother has been on the air in the United States for 13 seasons, and now Canada is getting its turn. Endemol and Insight Productions announced yesterday that it will be starting a Canadian version of the 24/7 live broadcast reality show on a yet-to-be-determined date. The question remains: will it be able to rival the 2001 hit series U8TV’s The Lofters? Because The Lofters is probably one of the only examples of Canadian reality television that’s been done well. (Even if you don’t agree, at least watch the video to reminisce on early noughties fashion.)
