TORONTO, March 18, 2015 /CNW/ - ET Canada's three-night reveal event concluded tonight, announcing the final five of 16 houseguests entering the Big Brother Canada house. Having been plucked from their homes, the new cast of Canadians – representing six provinces (B.C., AB, SK, MB, ON, and NS) – are moving in to the Big Brother Canada house to compete for a grand prize of $100,000, a $25,000 gift card from The Brick, and a $10,000 trip of a lifetime courtesy of Twistos. Big Brother Canada premieres on Global on Monday, March 23 at 8pm ET/PT and airs Mondays at 8pm ET/PT, Wednesdays at 9pm ET/PT and Sundays at 7pm ET/PT.

"I always look forward to the Big Brother Canada casting process because the hopefuls know the show, come prepared, and never let us down. I'm extremely excited about this season's cast!" said Robyn Kass, Casting Director, Kassting Inc. "After months of scouring the country and meeting with the biggest characters in Canada, we've narrowed it down to the best of the best. Just like all Big Brother casts, this season brings a little bit of everything, with houseguests that will make us laugh, cry, think, squirm, and of course, scream at the TV."

The final five houseguests include a sexy server, an attention-seeking superfan, an Assistant Cruise Director with a penchant for pageants, a charismatic poker player, and a cheery cheerleader. The final five houseguests announced today, are:

Johnny Colatruglio: a boy-crazy, attention-loving, 26 year-old superfan from Winnipeg with a dog named Veto.

Kevin Martin: this Calgary-born professional poker player will charm the pennies out of everyone's pockets.

Pilar Nemer: this sassy Mexican-born beauty grew up with 10 siblings and knows how to fight for herself.

Risha Denner: at 41 years old and standing 6'1", this sensitive, statuesque beauty from Toronto is the complete package.

Sindy Nguyen: If there's one thing to know about this pageant princess, it's that she's "Sindy with an 'S'."

Exclusive videos, bios, and photos of Big Brother Canada's season three houseguests are available online at www.BigBrotherCanada.ca.

On Friday, March 20, ET Canada is giving fans a full half-hour special of exclusive content and interviews to gear up for Big Brother Canada season premiere on Monday, March 23.
