Big Brother (Africa)

Show Summary

One Continent, One Winner Following on from many other countries around the world, Africa takes a contestant from each of it's twelve main country's to be a contestant in its Big Brother house. The house itself is in Johannesburg in the Sasani Studios in Lyndhurst. All airdates contained in the guide are based on listings on the shows official website and are based on Central African time. For the first series 7 women and 5 men competed for the $50,000 prize. The show ran over 106 days, from May 25th through to September 7th, 2003. With twists which included a housemate swap with the UK - were African housemate Gaetano Kagwa swapped places with the UK's Cameron Stout. The show was revived for a second series in 2007, starting on August the 5th and ending on November the 11th, with 6 men and 6 women competing. This series brought in a Head of House role, as used in other Big Brother's around the world. It also fell under heavy criticism due to alleged bans being lifted throughout the series, continuous advertisements interrupting live broadcasts, alleged sexual assaults in the house and housemates using the Head of House role to abuse other housemates. The show returned for it's third series on Sunday August the 24th, the prize money remaining at $100,000, with a return to the nomination system used in the first series, six men and six women entered the house. It is currently meant to end on November 23rd. Nominations are made by the housemates on Mondays. Each housemate must nominate two fellow housemates, giving clear and justified reasons as to why they should be evicted. The Head of House can be nominated, however once the nominations are made, the Head of House is allowed to save a nominee (including themselves) and nominate a new housemate for eviction. The housemates don't find out who's being up for eviction until the Sunday, when they are evicted. Due to the show being multi-regional, the voting system takes place in 13 parts. Each of the twelve countries within Africa vote for the housemate they want out. The majority of the vote for each country will be counted as a vote. The thirteenth part of the vote comes from viewers watching from outside of Africa, as the housemates and Big Brother all talk English and episodes are available to watch over the internet.moreless

  • i want 2 appreciate bba 4 dis show because it is competitive at every stage or episode.the roommates are doing what they think they can do 2 win the hot cash and also be famous.ofuneka is doing well.moreless

    6.8
    ofuneka is the best housemates as far as bba is concern and she is a true leader.all the task you have been given,she has been doing them well.she is the winner this time around and no other housemates will take the money away except her.maxwell is too aggressive and hot tempered and does not relate well with other housemates and i will like ofuneka to stand firm and make sure he represent my country because we are all solidly behind her at any episode and what ever level.justice is into a very big problem because lerato always try to seduce him when ever they are together and alone.justice is also the shy type and cannot be a leader as other housemates are trying to see what they can do to lead in the roommoreless
  • This show popped up on the TV.COM Top 100 most popular show list at a lofty #49. How on Earth did that happen?

    1.7
    Billed as the most popular reality TV show in Africa (Africa has TV?) and apparently lasted 5 episodes? At least thats all thats listed. How could this make it into the top 100 most popular at #49? Is it a glitch? Considering how few votes the show has, that seems likely. They should make a Big Brother series based on the movie 1984 - now that would be cool. The only reason Im not giving this show a 1.0 is this line of dialog from episode 5 as recorded in the episode guide. "How can i have AIDS, I am Micho Obokaha, I'm badass." -Micho defending his AIDSless body.moreless
