This season, not only will the grand prize winner receive a $25,000 gift card to The Brick, but the exclusive furniture provider will also award four lucky viewers with the Big Brother Canada Ultimate Fan Experience. Those fortunate four plus their guests each receive a weekend in Toronto, tickets to the season finale, and 24 hours to live in the Big Brother Canada house where they will eat slop, and play in a custom challenge while living like a #BBCAN4 houseguest. Each winner will receive a video that documents the once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Brick will also be sponsoring the very first Big Brother Canada Meme Maker where fans will have the chance to Meme funny moments throughout the season on BigBrotherCanada.ca.
"The Brick is excited to return as the official furniture provider of Big Brother Canada for a fourth season. The partnership really gives us an opportunity to showcase our product in a fun way to audiences we might not otherwise reach. I think fans are really going to be excited about The Brick's 'Flip the HOH Look' contest this year!" said Sheldon Pietrzykowski, Sr. Director of Advertising & Digital, The Brick. "The integration between in-show and online ensures fans can really leave their mark on the game in a way they haven't yet had the chance to do."
OxiClean HD™ Laundry Detergent
Returning for a second year as Big Brother Canada's official laundry detergent provider, OxiClean HD™ Laundry Detergent keeps the houseguests fresh and clean, which can be just as important as winning the Power of Veto! While the #BBCAN4 players tackle tricky challenges, OxiClean HD™ Laundry Detergent will tackle tough dried-on stains keeping the houseguests' radiant whites and vibrant colours looking top-notch throughout the entire game. The Big Brother Canada Season 4 winner will also receive an OxiClean HD™ Laundry Detergent prize pack valued at $10,000 that includes $500 of fabric care products and a $9,500 wardrobe makeover.
"With the upcoming season of tough challenges, messy tasks, and stain ridden clothes, our OxiClean™ HD Laundry Detergent partnership with Big Brother Canada Season 4 is the perfect match," said Rena Nickerson, Director of Marketing, Church & Dwight Canada Corp. "We are excited to engage with Big Brother Canada fans and the houseguests, as they conquer their dirty laundry with OxiClean™ HD Laundry Detergent."
shomi™, Canada's premier streaming service, is back and ready for the new season of Big Brother Canada with in-show and digital integrations. Content is king in the #BBCAN4 house as the Head of Household once again is able to watch one show or movie on shomi every week. Additionally, fans can peek inside the Head of Household's virtual PVR as each week's HOH share their favourite shomi picks on BigBrotherCanada.ca. With shomi's extensive selection of TV shows and movies, the only problem is what to watch first!
"Big Brother Canada is just like shomi – fun, quirky, and 100% Canadian - which is why our sponsorship is a natural fit," said Rita Ferarri, Senior Director, Head of Marketing and Communications, shomi. "Last year's integration was a huge success. Who can forget the purple unitards and popcorn hats? I can't wait for viewers to see what we have in store for the contestants this season."
