Big Brother Australia Wanting Older People To Apply
The producers of Big Brother Australia are saying this year they are looking for older people to apply to be on the show.
Alex Mavroidis told SMH his ideal mix would be would be a combination of Generation Y, Generation X and baby boomer participants.
”I guess in an absolute ideal world, you’d have two people over 40, maybe four or five in their 30s and maybe six in their 20s. That feels like a good mix,” he said.
He also said ”What we don’t want to do is end up casting a house of wannabes.”
Well not sure happened last year as quite a few slipped through. However to be fair a high percentage of people who apply would be seeking the limelight.
Hopefully they will get a balance of people that were old and not just a few as they tend to get nominated by the younger people. But an even mix of all ages with an above average IQ could make it very interesting indeed.
The article shows Andrea Fisher a 39 year old librarian is applying for the show and people like that could be very interesting indeed. We don’t need the dumb good looking types like Ryan or George, even with them hooking up with some of the girls did not add anything to the show.
Mr Mavroidakas appears to be on board with this idea
‘We really want men in suits, mums – you know, professional people who you’d look at and think, ‘There’s no way they’re going to get on Big Brother‘ – this year, we want them,” Mr Mavroidakis said.
So if you fill that brief and were hesitant to apply, do so, this year you might get on and spare Big Brother fans from the usual stream of himbos and bimbos.
Auditons are currently occurring and will be in Melbourne and Sydney in the coming weeks. For more information on how to audition go to the official website here.
