The format for Big Brother in Canada remains largely unchanged from the U.S. edition, making them the only two version of the series thus far to follow this format. HouseGuests are sequestered in the Big Brother House without contact with the outside world. Each week, the HouseGuests take part in several compulsory challenges that determine who will win food, luxuries, and opportunities to become the Head of Household (HoH) or win the Power of Veto (PoV). The winner of the weekly HoH competition is immune from nominations and nominates two fellow HouseGuests for eviction. The two HouseGuests nominated for eviction are also referred to as being "on the block" for eviction. After a HouseGuest becomes HoH, he or she is ineligible to take part in the next HoH competition. The winner of the PoV competition wins the right to save one of the nominated HouseGuests from eviction and take them off the block.

Big Brother Canada one of two Big Brothers with this layout. Only BBUS and BBCan have a inside-only game where the Houseguest's nominate and evict themselves, rather than the viewing public voting and deciding. See more »
I started watching Big Brother Canada during season 4 (shoutout to ASAP Science) and I was hooked ever since! In my opinion, the BBCAN seasons are better than some of the recent BBUS seasons (and I'm American). There's more diversity in the casting, they are there to play the game, their production value is great, and they have some fun in the house with their secret missions. Also, there have been several memorable moments and iconic houseguests throughout the six seasons.
However, one thing that distinguishes BBCAN from BBUS is their triple evictions, which are notorious for screwing people over, along with Canada's save. In addition to that, I hear the live feeds aren't good and they often don't work. They're also free, so that explains that. BBCAN can never 100% fully match up to BBUS considering BBUS has been around a lot longer.
Overall, Big Brother Canada is simply amazing! I highly recommend it to any fans of the American version. They may have the same format, but the Canadians manage to make it their own.
