A Nanaimo man walked into the Big Brother house with 15 roommates and will try to be the last one left.
Nanaimo Mitsubishi Sales Manager Hermon Nizghi is one of 16 contestants for Season 10 of Big Brother Canada from Wednesday 2 March.
The Global TV reality series groups contestants into a single house and places them under constant video surveillance, and throws in additional challenges that could reward guests by protecting them from voting out of the house that week, per example.
Nizghi is already in the house and unavailable for interviews, an email from the network noted, but he was interviewed by producers before the competition.
“My strategy to win Big Brother Canada is to make everyone fall in love with me at home and then turn it on in week 2,” he said in a video posted on the show’s website.
Nizghi added that he would be looking to make friends and allies and the 29-year-old bachelor said a “show-mance” was not out of the question.
“Canada is going to cheer me on because I’m a friendly kid who started small and grew. I had decent success…” he said. “I hope they see themselves in me a bit.”
Nizghi is one of four guests from British Columbia – the others are Haleena Gill from Surrey, Jessica Gowling from Cranbrook and Josh Nash from Vancouver.
A press release from Corus Entertainment called Big Brother “the greatest game show on Earth,” promised tension and drama and predicted that guests this season will take part in trivia games, unlock mysterious doors and complete “grueling” challenges.
The winner takes home a grand prize of $100,000 plus a $10,000 wardrobe from Winners and a trip courtesy of Expedia.
Big Brother Canada will air on Global three nights a week – Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, with the season premiere Wednesday, March 2 at 8 p.m. A season preview special will air on ET Canada that evening at 7 p.m. The show can be streamed live on demand with Stack TV or the Global TV app, and viewers can watch free live streams, participate in votes and more at http://bigbrothercanada.ca.
