An anticipated new season of the reality TV show, Big Brother Africa is just around the corner. And this time, it’s much bigger and better! Now that the prize money has been raised from $200,000 to a mouthwatering $300,000!
Reportedly, the organisers of the reality television series, M-Net, announced yesterday that apart from the increase in the prize money, there are other changes to the 2012 edition of the popular series.
According to reports on Nollywood uncut, the prize will be won by contestants from two countries, like 2011, but this time, housemates will come in pairs. So be it couples, married or otherwise, siblings and besties, the contestants will be coming into the Big Brother Africa house in pairs.
Liberia and Sierra Leone will also be joining the cast – a first for both countries – and Ethiopia has opted out of the edition, M-Net managing director Biola Alabi said.
Participating pairs should be from the same country, over 21, fluent in English and in possession of a valid passport to even stand a chance at the new and improved grand prize.
Produced for M-Net by Endemol South Africa, the new season of Big Brother Africa which would start on 6th May, 2012 will be sponsored by Coca-Cola for the second consecutive year and will be screened to 47 countries across the continent, live 24/7 for 91 days on DStv channel 198.
