Canada’s housing crisis just got a little bit worse.

Fifteen people living the the same cramped building? Sounds unruly. And filling it with cameras? That just seems extreme.

Nonetheless, that’s what the contestants face on Big Brother Canada, the first season of which premieres Feb. 27 on Slice and Global.

Of the 10,000 Canadians who auditioned, the identities of the 15 lucky houseguests have been revealed. They are, in alphabetical order:

Danielle Alexander, Fort McMurray party girl (pictured above).

Suzette Amaya, mom from Vancouver.

Alec Beall, Vancouver doctoral student.

Emmett Blois, East Coast farmer.

Emerald (Topaz) Brady, Scarborough dental hygienist.

Peter Brown, New Brunswick professional YouTuber.

Anuj (A.J.) Burman, Toronto salesman.

Gary Levy, Toronto socialite.

Jillian MacLaughlin, Nova Scotia teacher.

Andrew Monaghan, East Coast romantic.

Thomas Plant, Calgary firefighter.

Aneal Ramkissoon, Richmond Hill native who plans to do his thesis on Big Brother.

Talla Rejaei, Edmonton beauty.

Liza Stinton, Toronto salon owner.

Kat Yee, Toronto bartender and tom-boy.

The houseguests will compete for a $100,000 grand prize. Big Brother Canada will be hosted by Arisa Cox.
