Just when DStv audiences thought they had seen all the incredible twists and turns that Big Brother Africa could possibly bring, M-netÃ‚Â has pulled off another huge surprise.
And you know it’s a massive announcement when even the fact that this season’s brand new cash prize of a cool $300 000 isn’t the headline-grabbing news!
Grabbing that honour is the revelation from series producers that this season, entrants must double-up to competeÃ¢â‚¬â€meaning anyone who wants to enter season seven must partner with another person to enter as a pair.
So, whether you enter with your best friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, mom, dad, brother, sister, boss, husband, wife, neighbour, hairdresser, whomeverÃ¢â‚¬Â¦you must just make sure that you enter as a pair. So who will take the journey of a lifetime with you? Remember you may have to spend a long time with them in the house so choose carefully!
In another bold change, BBA welcomes two new countries Liberia and Sierra Leone to the Big Brother house for the first time ever, while this time round, Ethiopia bows out of the game and Mozambique will take on a new role that will be announced at a later stage.
That means that this year, if you want to enter Big Brother Africa you can do so if you and your partner are citizens from one of the following participating countries: Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Both partners must come from the same country, must be 21 years or older, must be fluent in English and must have a valid passport.
Interested persons can collect an entry form from the nearest MultiChoice office in their country anytime from February 5. Alternatively, you can also enter by logging on to www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother and completing an entry form online. Or download an entry form from the website, complete and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org.All online entry forms will also be available from February 5.
The deadline for entries is February 27, 2012.
As with previous seasons, entrants must be fun-loving, vocal, creative, original and articulate. In addition they must have the social flexibility to live in close proximity with others and must be tolerant of views and lifestyle choices other than their own.
Commenting on the surprise turn of events, M-Net Africa managing director Biola Alabi says:Ã‚Â “We are thrilled to be offering a huge prize and to include two new countries who were chosen to participate based on their ongoing interest in the series and their growing DStv audiences.Ã¢â‚¬Â
The series will start on May 6 this year.
