I had the chance to catch up with Dan and Chelsea Gheesling at the Big Brother Canada premiere party on February 27, 2013 in Toronto at the Shaw Media Building. We chatted about what Dan has been up to since his first win on Big Brother 10 and finishing second to Ian Terry last year. I also asked the pair for their first impressions of the new Big Brother Canada cast and called Dan out for putting me behind the 8-Ball in the Big Brother Canada Media Day game.
One of the more fascinating points of discussion is when we discussed whether Survivor is easier to win than Big Brother, since one only has to account for one variable on the island (the immunity idol) versus the randomness of Big Brother‘s competitions and twists.
