Jon Pardy is one of two people from this province who will be on Big Brother Canada, season 2.
Jon Pardy has joined 14 other hopeful contestants in the Big Brother House to compete in challenges. During their time they are isolated from the outside world and will be eliminated one by one with the final contestant winning $100,000.
The show premiers March 5 on the Slice channel and airs on Wednsdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Since the cast announcement last week, Pardy has been steadily gaining a following and has huge support from his hometown of Clarenville.
His official Facebook page, GoofyNewfieBBCA, already has 1,723 followers and his twitter page, GoofyNewfieBBCA has 800 followers.
In his Big Brother Canada 2 introductory video, Pardy says his strategy is to play a social game.
“I consider myself a funny and kind of goofy guy so hopefully I can play up my humour. But I’m going to play the game and do whatever it takes to win,” says Pardy.
Pardy says in his video that he is looking forward to the whole experience.
“I think it’s such a cool concept where people are watching you 24-7. I’m just excited to meet these people and enjoy it.”
Pardy is the only current Newfoundland resident to be on the show. Kenny Brain grew up in Grand Falls-Windsor and lives in Montreal will be a contestant and Andrew Monaghan from Corner Brook made it to the final five last season.
