TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2018 /CNW/ - It's going to be one hell of a ride on Big Brother Canada as Global announces the first big twist of the season. With eager houseguests preparing to enter the newly revamped house, they'll think they've died and gone to heaven, but all hell is about to break loose as two angels and two devils are vying to crash the party.
Beginning today, four "gate crashers" are praying for a spot in the #BBCAN house, but only Canadian fans can select the final girl and final guy to join Season 6. To seal the fate of two hopeful houseguests, click here to vote before March 8 at 2 p.m. ET. While the power to round out the cast remains in the hands of Canadians, the real choice lies in which type of houseguest to elect – the loyal good-natured teammate true to their alliance or the deceitful and cutthroat schemer willing to do whatever it takes to win. For additional voting details, please visit BigBrotherCanada.ca.
In a season that's heaven sent, the house is a dream come true for many, but once the game begins, it can quickly become a horrible nightmare. To find out which two angels or devils make the cut, catch the reveal during the first week of Big Brother Canada beginning Wednesday, March 7 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on Global.

The Season 6 houseguests are competing for a grand prize of $100,000, a European dream vacation for two courtesy of Air Transat, and a $30,000 home furnishing makeover from The Brick.
