Scavenger hunt takes place this weekend

In organizing a reunion with fellow Big Brother Canada contestants in her own hometown, Anick Gervais wasn't satisfied with a simple get-together.

Instead, Gervais — who appeared on the reality television program's second season earlier this year — has arranged for four past Big Brother Canada “house guests” to participate in an Aug. 30 scavenger hunt in the Nickel City.

These contestants in the Find Arlie event include Arlie Shaban, Ika Wong and Jon Pardy, who were all on the show's second season, and A.J. Burman, a first-season contestant.

The Big Brother Canada alumni will be scattered throughout the city, and it will be up to members of the public registered to compete in the scavenger hunt to find them with the help of clues.


The team that finds Arlie Shaban first wins the grand prize, which includes a free dinner at Oscar's Grill with Shaban and Gervais after the event Aug. 30. There's also a prize for the team with the best costumes.

“I'm definitely looking forward to it,” Gervais said. “I'm really, really excited and pumped. It's a mini Big Brother reunion in Sudbury. When does that ever happen?”

The event, which begins at 9:30 a.m., is open to 30 teams of two. Gervais said there's still room for a few more teams. Registration costs $65 per team, with the proceeds going to Gervais' motivational series for teens, First Love Yourself.

To register for the scavenger hunt, visit www.findarlie.com.

If you can't participate in the scavenger hunt, there's still a chance to chat with Big Brother Canada contestants, get their signatures and take photos at a meet and greet starting at 3 p.m. Aug. 30. Tickets cost $25 per person.

To purchase tickets to the meet and greet, visit www.anickdotes.com/big-brother-meet-and-greet.

Details about venues for both events will be provided upon registering or purchasing tickets.
