Big Brother Is Back But With A Twist
Good news for Big Brother fans the show will be back on our screens in 2012.
The Herald Sun is reporting that Channel Nine has brought the rights to the show, but it will be a “reborn” series.
The article says:
CONTROVERSIAL reality series Big Brother is set for a relaunch.
A 2012 version of the one-time ratings smash hit is destined for Channel Nine.
Rival Channel Ten sought to bid on the reborn series, titled Big Brother: Secrets, but it is understood Nine signed the deal today.
“I understand we are doing it,” a Nine source confirmed.
Nine is certain to produce the show on a smaller scale than in the past.
t is believed that Nine is also determined to let viewers know it won’t be the same old Big Brother, which slipped into ratings decline in its eighth and final season on Ten.
The new show will be marketed as Big Brother: Secrets … every housemate has a secret.”
There is no word yet on the host of the re-booted Big Brother. Gretel Killeen hosted the first seven series of the show on Ten. Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O hosted Ten’s final series before it was cancelled in 2008.
The secret thing is intriguing, but personally I always thought Big Brother was at its best when they just threw the contestants in there with a few bottles of tequila.
TV Tonight in an article written earlier this year which outlines how the “secrets” work in the French version of the show. He also points out there is social networking now which will make a difference to the show.
Basically Big Brother combined with Facebook and Twitter equals awesome.
Channel Nine are really laying down the reality TV gauntlet to the other channels in 2012. They have The Voice, Celebrity Apprentice and now Big Brother – Secrets.
Also who will be host? It will be hard to fill the shoes of Gretel Killeen, however there are a few girls and guys who could do it.
My suggestions would be Natalie Garonzi, James Kerley, Julie Zemarro or ever Ant and Beck’s from 106.5 FM. Who do you think should be host?
