Airing exclusively on Global in spring 2017, Big Brother Canada plucks a group of hand-picked strangers from their homes, sequesters them from the outside world, and places them inside a house outfitted wall-to-wall with cameras and microphones that capture their every move. Competing for a grand cash prize, each week the houseguests battle in a series of challenges that give them power or punishment, voting each other out until the fate of the final two is decided by a jury of fellow houseguests.

The Season 18 finale of Big Brother airs Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Fans can catch up on all the action the day following the broadcast on and Global Go.
