WATCH: The houseguests are back for 'Big Brother Canada 9,' and host/executive producer Arisa Cox couldn't be more excited – Mar 2, 2021

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.

“It’s incredible, … the COVID safety protocols are so extreme,” said Cox in the interview. “Every single person (on-set) takes it so seriously because we’re so happy to be here.”
