Last week producers of Big Brother Africa were unfortunately forced to push back the launch of the new season, following a fire on the premises where Africa’s most watched house was set to be staged. But because this is the biggest show on television and the demand for a new season is so high, the teams have been frantically working around the clock to find a new venue to stage the reality show. The good news that is all sorted out and the show is set to kick off on the 5th of October at 19:00. Check out the full statement below:
M-Net and Endemol SA are delighted to confirm that a new Big Brother house has been found in Johannesburg, South Africa following the devastating fire that demolished the original house on 2 September. The search was concluded after exploring all possible options both locally and internationally, for a suitable venue to produce the 9th season of Africa’s biggest reality show.
M-Net and Endemol SA are pleased to announce that Big Brother Hotshots will officially launch on Sunday 5 October 2014 at 19:00 CAT. As they countdown to the launch, fans across the continent can look forward to some pleasant surprises in true Biggie fashion.
The producers wish to thank fans far and wide for all the patience and continuous support over the past few days.
