    I wonder if it’s going to be like the US, with HOH and Veto, or BBUK and all the other ones across the world

    I may be the biggest threat Big Brother has ever laid eyes upon.

    Sometimes I wonder why Canadian TV networks bother with new reality/competition shows when they already canceled the one they air. They canceled Canadian Idol, So You Think You Can Dance Canada, Canada’s Got Talent , and my personal favorite Project Runway Canada, and now they planing to produce The Canadian Bachelor (CityTV) and this. I wonder how some people’s brains work..
