As I previously reported, Big Brother Canada producers decided to remove houseguest Ethan Quance from the house. After it was announced that Ethan had been cast to compete in BBCAN9, social media turned up some unsavory behavior in his background that disqualified him from participating on the reality show.
Ethan has been replaced by Kyle Moore. The handsome 26-year-old from Red Deer Alberta is an unemployed hockey coach, who plans to make as many connections as possible and dominate the competitions in hopes to become the BBCAN9 champ.
Kyle says, "I think I was chosen because I am a charismatic and athletic guy, who loves taking risks and has lived an interesting life."
Big Brother Canada premieres Wednesday, March 3 @ 7PM on Global TV in Canada, however, there are instructions for viewing shows and the live feeds
in the USA posted here.
Social media has been buzzing about one of the BBCAN9 houseguests having
an unsavory past. The RUMOURS are that one of the HGs, already in the
cast listed below, is being called a "racist," a "sexist," and "brawler."
Global TV, the Canadian network that airs Big Brother Canada,
responded on Thursday with this statement:
