Big Brother Canada 5 was the fifth season of the series and also of coverage on RHAP. The format closely followed that of the American version of the show with major additional twists mixed in including allowing the Canadian audience to influence the game heavily via voting. For this season, 8 new houseguests faced off against 8 Big Brother Canada veterans, looking for a chance at redemption. This season also marks the first full season covered by Melissa Deni, who won the "So You Think You Can Podcast" competition at the end of Big Brother: Over the Top.
Big Brother Canada 5 coverage consisted of live shows done usually after each episode. Rob Cesternino would cover the Monday episode with two members of the LFC, while Jordan Parhar would cover the Wednesday episode with the full LFC and the Thursday episode with often a Big Brother Canada alumnus. Rob also did exit interviews with the recently evicted, usually released on Fridays. Due to this season airing at the same time as Survivor: Game Changers, Big Brother Canada 5 coverage showed only in the Big Brother and Reality TV RHAP-Ups feeds, as opposed to the main feed from previous seasons.
