Africa: Big Brother Africa's Back


After the huge success of the first two series of the reality television show 'Big Brother Africa', M-Net has moved quickly to begin work on a new season of the popular show. Big Brother Africa 3 will hit our television screens on August 24 and run for 91 days - with the grand finale set for November 23. As with Big Brother Africa 1 and 2, one housemate will be selected from each of the following countries: Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The selected housemate will then be flown to Johannesburg where he or she will have to live in isolation from the real world with 11 other strangers in the BBA house. Together all the housemates will take part in a series of challenges and tasks, battling it out week after week for various rewards and prizes. The housemates will nominate their least favourite housemate each week and the public can then vote to evict one housemate until there only one left to claim the prize money of US$100,000. With 27 cameras and 48 microphones lurking in every corner of the BBA house, their every move will be scrutinised by all on the continent. M-Net says it is looking for interesting and memorable characters: people who are fluent in English, fun loving, good-looking, sexy, crazy, loud, wild, original and articulate.
