The infamous reality show is back and it’s taking no prisoners (except for the fourteen people it plans to lock up without contact with the outside world for the next few months).
With a programming schedule akin to a hostile takeover, Big Brother will be airing no fewer then six nights a week across both Nine and Go!, starting tonight at 7pm with live eviction shows on Sundays and live nomination shows on Mondays.
More than twenty-thousand hopefuls across Australia tried their chances at becoming Australia’s most loved housemate of 2012. However, only fourteen will step foot into the iconic house which has this season been completely redesigned in the theme of “Past, Present and Future.” Not to fear, the inner sanctum in which contestants reveal their deepest, darkest thoughts – the Diary Room – is still in action.
This time around the competition will be hosted by the effervescent Sonia Kruger in her first primetime job on her new network home.
The 14 Housemates will go into the house with a secret and will have to try and keep them for as long as they can which stems from the French version of the show called Secret Story.
We have a lot to thank Big Brother for over the years: such as the bum dance and turkey slapping. Hopefully, this season won’t foster more of the same high calibre societal contributions. Nine is maintaining that this series will be family friendly and in tune with its early timeslot. One can only wait and see…
The show’s revamp is expected to mean big business for Dreamworld, the Queensland amusement park where production will take place. Dreamworld reportedly expects some 40,000 people to visit the set and live eviction shows over the coming weeks.
Big Brother premieres tonight at 7pm on Channel Nine. Tune in to find out who makes the cut.
