Big Brother is back for it's fifth installment people starting July 18. However, if you have never, ever, ever applied to be in the past four seasons, then my apologies, you will not be in this season either.
MNet revealed that having run the series 4 times previously, they’re now head-hunting contestants from a database of previous entries submitted for the show.
“We want to invest more broadly in season 5 and having already been introduced to a world of interesting characters from previous searches, there’s limited value in spending extensively in another search for contestants,” says -Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi.
She goes on to say, “We’ll still be looking for entertaining persons with a sense of humor, a love of adventure and the ability to enjoy the very exciting Big Brother experience. In the past we’ve spent widely to find contestants in 14 countries. This year, we’re using these funds to develop a gutsy new series, recreating the house in a very different way and focusing on putting new technology into place.”
M-Net will kick-off a sensational new season of Africa’s biggest reality show right after the World Cup ends.
Similar to the past season, the golden prize of USD 200 000 is up for grabs and this time, Big Brother fans in over 40 countries across the continent are going to get a show that’s more edgy, more tactically challenging and more intensely strategic than ever before.
