Big Brother Canada - Global countdown live stream

Global TV has triggered speculation that it has reversed its decision to drop Big Brother Canada after starting a mysterious live stream featuring clips from the show.

In May the broadcaster announced that BBCAN would not return in 2018 – but insisted the show had only been put “on hiatus”, rather than fully cancelled.

Nonetheless, fans were devastated by the news and began campaigning to reverse the decision, flooding Global’s social media pages with the hashtag #SaveBBCAN. A concerted effort to promote the crusade also saw ‘#SaveBBCANParty’ reach the top three Twitter trending topics in Canada.

Now they have been given fresh hope after Global began a mysterious live stream on its Facebook page, featuring a countdown clock on a plain black background, accompanied by an eerie, pulsing sound.

Every so often, the countdown is interrupted by distorted clips from past seasons of BBCAN, alluding to an announcement. They include one of BBCAN3’s Sarah and Brittnee saying “We did it!”, and another of BBCAN5’s William saying: “Canada, this is gonna be crazy, I’m so excited!”

Global is teasing the live stream with the quote ‘#YouCanAndYouWill’, which became a catchphrase for host Arisa Cox after she said it to houseguest Sindy ahead of Neda’s eviction during BBCAN5.

While airing the latest episode of the American version of Big Brother, the network displayed a graphic on air, promoting this hashtag and directing viewers to the Facebook stream.

In addition, a separate video has been posted on Global’s Twitter and Instagram pages, of what appears to be a distorted view of a Big Brother control room.

The countdown began with over 24 hours to go, and will expire at around 2.40am UK time tomorrow – during this week’s BBUSA eviction.
