MNET’s Big Brother Africa 4 reality show starts 5th September 2009 with very high expectations due to the hype from MNET. The show would last for 91 days. From Wikipedia:
As with all Big Brother series, Big Brother Africa: The Revolution will include surprises and unexpected innovations. However there are several main differences in the series. In addition to a completely redesigned eye logo and new host Ikponmwosa “I.K.” Osakioduwa, the prize money on offer has now doubled and is USD 200 000. The house will be renovated and will include almost double the number of cameras and microphones. Further, the search for housemates has been expanded from 12 countries to now include 14 countries. Plus the old rules concerning ‘conspiracy in the house’ have been lifted and housemates can now form alliances and discuss their game strategy openly. Even the voting in the new season is set to undergo a complete transformation. This year, audiences will be asked to vote for the housemates they want to see remain in the series rather than the housemates they want to see leave the series. So it’s all about being positive and keeping the great players in the game.
The 14 participating countries this 2009 are: Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Each country will have their own representative housemate.
There is no shower hour in Big Brother Africa 4.
