Big Brother Canada Rules

There are some of the rules which houseguests participating in Big Brother Canada Season 8 must follow.

The Big Brother Canada Rules Book is a handbook of rules and regulations created by Big Brother for houseguests during their stay in the house.

It plays a major part of the show, though is often overlooked. It can affect a houseguest’s stay inside the house if he or she violates one or more of the rules, as each violation results in a corresponding punishment.

BBCAN House Rules
