Arisa Cox on ‘Big Brother Canada’ Season 9: ‘A lot of twists and turns coming’

Arisa Cox and Big Brother Canada are back for Season 9.

Cox, the host of the Canadian reality show since Day 1, is beyond excited for the return of BBCAN, and this year she’s taken on the additional role of co-executive producer. According to Cox, she now has a hand in casting — among other things — and has kept her first promise by bringing aboard a wide selection of diversified houseguests.

After last season’s abrupt ending due to COVID-19, Global, along with production company Insight Productions, have done everything to ensure the safety of the incoming cast and crew.
