Big Brother Canada's Wonder Women

While other reality shows have wrestled with casting strong, independent female players, Big Brother Canada has a rich history of putting girl power on display. As we ready for Big Brother Canada’s Season 4 debut on March 2nd, here is a look back at Big Brother Canada’s most memorable female players.

7. Ika Wong
The undisputed boss of Big Brother 2, Ika never took two steps back, even at the cost of her own status in the house. She played a hard and uncompromising game, refusing to be intimidated by anyone. Burning those letters from home in order to pocket $5000, will go down as one of the best moments in the history of the Big Brother franchise.  

6. Sabrina Abbate

Don’t let her bombastic nature fool you. Sabrina was not only one of the founding members of the First Five but her conniving and very effective maneuverings carried her all the way to the finals. She proudly wore her Big Brother Canada drama queen crown.  

5. Sarah Hanlon
The winner of Big Brother Canada 3, Sarah was a crafty chameleon, proving herself to be a very adaptable player. Strategically dodging and weaving while winning crucial competitions, Sarah became the second female in Big Brother history to win out over an opposing male finalist.

4. Sindy Nguyen
As aggressive as a pit bull and as sly as a fox, Sindy brought more than her fair share of drama to Season 3. The cruise director and pageant queen will always be remembered for stabbing her own showmance in the back and persistently keeping all of the other houseguests on their toes with her slick and calculating tactics.

3. Brittnee Blair

Many underestimated the shrewd model from Calgary, much to their own demise. Winning three Head of Household competitions and being directly responsible for handful of evictions, Brittnee and her Fembot Alliance partner Sarah Hanlon were the team to beat.

2. Neda Kalantar

The fashion stylist from Vancouver is considered to be the greatest strategist to ever grace the Big Brother Canada house and one of the best in Big Brother history. Forming an alliance with her partner in crime, Jon Pardy, they were the power couple of Season 2.

1. Jillian MacLaughlin

The winner of Big Brother Canada’s very first season Jillian set the standard for all who followed in her footsteps. Winning four Head of Household competitions and amazingly never receiving a solitary eviction vote, Jillian played strong and played smart. The school teacher from New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, made it to the final three without ever being nominated, no easy feat in the Big Brother game.

“Last time I was a big character. I sucked and got 9th but I was a big character and added a lot to the show”

Kevin sweetie, the only reason you were a “big character” was because production gave you more than 200 DRs in seven weeks before Brittnee ended you
