Big Brother House – Will It Be In Gold Coast Or Sydney?
Rumours had it the Big Brother house was locked in for Movie World at the Gold Coast, however the Daily Telegraph are reporting that Fox Studios at Moore Park in Sydney could also be in the running for the all important compound.
The article states:
A TUG of war between NSW and Queensland has erupted over the location of Channel 9’s reboot of Big Brother, with the location of the all-important inmates’ house yet to be settled.
While the always-rambunctious dwelling was situated at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast for all of Channel 10’s eight seasons, it is understood two other offers are now being considered.
Fox Studios at Moore Park – where The Great Gatsby is currently filming – has expressed interest, as has Dreamworld’s major competitor Movie World.
“(Nine) were looking to base it in Sydney to separate their Big Brother from Channel 10’s,” an insider said. “But the reality is the Queensland theme parks are the perfect place, in terms of people being able to get up close to (the house).”
Confidential hears Movie World is leading the negotiations, but it said it was not in a position to comment yesterday. Channel 9 said a location was yet to be decided.The new Big Brother – to be hosted by Nine’s latest Seven poaching Sonia Kruger – will be a downsized version of Ten’s popular noughties format.
