With M-Net’s BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED launching on Sunday (May 1), DStv audiences across the continent are gearing up for more fun, entertainment and reality TV adventure! Now, in keeping with tradition, audiences are getting a sneak peek at the redesigned Big Brother house just days before the series kicks off.
Bright, bold and brand new, the house this year is a celebration of color, with vivid oranges, fresh greens and cheerful pinks complementing funky purple, sunshine yellow and cool blue. Fusing retro hip style with more modern contoured shapes, the house is playful, artistic and eclectic. It’s a showcase for pop culture, filled with interesting contrasts and dynamic wall art while remaining a light filled space that is welcoming and warm.
Fitted with all the modern appliances, the house is best described as friendly and fashionable, created to offer real comfort and great fun to the housemates. Including two bedrooms, a long kitchen, a storeroom, an open plan living room plus a large garden evergreen with artificial grass and two separate seating areas, the Big Brother house also includes a large bathroom. Most importantly, the Diary Room (now called the Chat Room) is back at the heart of things where housemates will spend time talking directly to Biggie.
Amongst the décor, the house also functions as a fully-fledged studio environment and includes 120 microphones and 54 cameras, including brand new ‘cue-ball’ cameras that allow for even greater camera flexibility and scope, an essential on a series that runs 24/7 live for 91 days. The big question this year is of course…will Big Brother have any surprises like last year’s Barn which was only revealed weeks after the show’s launch? That remains to be seen but audiences can be guaranteed…what you see is not always what you get on Big Brother!
M-Net’s BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED starts on DStv channel 198 on Sunday May 1. The series is available 24/7 to DStv Premium, Compact Plus and Compact subscribers. The series is headline sponsored by Coca-Cola and produced for M-Net by Endemol SA. BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED will also be available on DStv Mobile in Ghana, Kenya, Namibia and Nigeria.
And in another exciting new development, the BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED Launch Show, which kicks off at 19:00 CAT on May 1, will be going multi-media, with live steaming of the two hour opening show on the official website www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother at no cost, marking the first time in the history of the African series that this has happened! And for audiences who log on early, there’s a special 15 minute pre-show exclusive to online audiences that begins at 18.45 CAT.
Watch out for details on the venue of the weekly eviction parties in Accra to support the Ghanaian housemate!So whether you’re watching online or whether you are watching on DStv, make sure you don’t miss the start of BIG BROTHER AMPLIFIED…
