  1. is active again now that Big Brother Australia is back for 2012!!

  2. Just saw an article on Big Brother Australia Facebook page that says that Channel 9 in Australia has picked the Big Brother Program back up and will be broadcasting a new season in 2012. The article says that there will be an entirely new house and the show will be hosted by Sonia Kruger. I don't know the location of the new house but it would make sense to put it on the existing lot at Dreamland south of Brisbane. The have all of the existing production facilities in place. I will be posting more information as it becomes available. The following is a quote from "if.com.au":
  3. I have only seen Kyle a couple of times on the show as a contestant. I have never seen him in a host or comentator role. Therefore I really don't know how he will do, so I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt. Now Jackie O, IMHO, is a cutie. Much better looking than Gretel, and any eye entertainment, from my mans' point-of-view, is a GOOD thing!! Can she speak well and does she have the gift of the gab, we will have to wait and see? My biggest concern, is that only one of the two can confront a contestant as they come out of the house as they are evicted. You have to give the evicted a chance to speak and get used to the outside world again. So my stance on this is wait and see. Hank :ninja: :ninja:
  4. Big Brother shake up November 13, 2007 12:00am A RAFT of changes - from senior management down to programming - are set to deliver a much needed shake up to Channel Ten reality show Big Brother in 2008. While securing 2DAY FM hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O to replace veteran brother mother Gretel Killeen may have been a coup for producers, the pair's demanding radio schedule has placed restrictions on their availability for the small screen. Kyle and Jackie O As a result, it is understood the BB Monday night nominations program will be scrapped from the programming schedule next year - leaving Sandilands and his sidekick to concentrate on the higher rating Sunday night eviction. Sandilands' manager admitted her star charge would not quite fill Killeen's rather large shoes when he takes the BB reins next year. "I do know that there will be a whole heap of changes, and Kyle will absolutely not be as heavily involved as Gretel was in the show,'' India Bent told Confidential. Industry sources suggest BB narrator Mike Goldman's role will be more involved as the hyped hosts pull back. "It's definitely going to be interesting times - one thing for sure is that the whole show will be turned on its head,'' Goldman said. "A lot of the staff - not just Gretel - who have worked on the show for years have left, and from what I understand it will be completely different.'' A BB spokesman was staying tight-lipped yesterday, refusing to confirm or deny any rumours about the 2008 series. In addition to Killeen's departure, Kris Noble has been replaced by Rory Callaghan as the director of BB production company Endemol Southern Star. BB has long been Noble's baby, but the addition of Callaghan - the man who produced the first series of Channel Seven's ratings smash hit Dancing with the Stars is expected to add some splash to the tired reality fishbowl. ------------------------------------------------- A Herald Sun article from 7 Nov also confirms that the Late-Night ADULTS ONLY show will probably return to the TV line-up next season. "Sandilands, BB's new co-host, has revealed Channel 10 is likely to resurrect its late-night adult-only show. He said 10 should never have kow-towed to wowsers and taken the controversial adult-only show off air. The weekly show - which featured antics deemed too rude for prime time - did not screen this year as producers bowed to political pressure to axe it after the infamous "turkey slapping" incident. " ----------------------------------------------------- Here is a couple of quotes from the article about Gretel leaving the show and some things that Kyle and Jackie O want in the new show next year. ----------------------------------------------------- Gretel Killeen has been dumped from Big Brother as Ten seeks to revamp the struggling show by introducing new hosts, radio duo Kyle Sandilands and Jackie O. "Working on Big Brother has been an extraordinary, challenging and rewarding experience," Killeen said. "I'm really proud of what we've achieved but I now have the seven-year itch and am busting to get on with a million new things, including my first feature film, which we're shooting in the new year." After seven years, the show is in dire need of a change. The 2007 series was criticised for its boring and predictable housemates, resulting in poor ratings and speculation the show might be axed. But producers Endemol Southern Star have confirmed the show will return in 2008 in a "tighter, re-energised format". Jackie O wants 'shake-up' It will again be filmed at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast. "I would like to see them shake it up, especially with the contestants because I think everybody is sick of the same old contestants going in," Jackie O said. "It actually gets really boring after a while. "As a fan, I have always wanted a bigger variety of people in there and also to push the contestants more." Her co-host has a similar view and speaks from experience. Sandilands was a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother in 2002 and was a guest in the house for a weekend this year, although he had to leave early because he suffered from a migraine. Sandilands wants 'grumpy old men' "I want that conflict, that real sense of drama rather than that frat house drama that we've seen over the last few years," Sandilands, who is also a judge on Ten's Australian Idol, said. "It is time that we mix it up a little bit. "We will still have young, fun people in there but the whole house won't be full of 20-something losers. "I would like the old grumpy man that hates loud noise and hates young people in there." Both Sandilands and Jackie O praised Killeen on her hosting of the show, saying they were big fans of her TV style. Ten will be hoping for a big boost in ratings with the revamped show.

  5. But Dani won the POV last saturday which was a memory type competition. I think Dani is the best bet to go against Zach in part three. And since part two is today and Dick wasn't in the best of shape when he let go this morning, he may not be in too great of a shape by the time of the competition on thursday. Hank
  6. For LOLLY... Up until the final HoH competition (which is this one), there is a competiition to determine who will be HoH. For the final competition, there are only three people left. We then have a three part competition. The first part is with all three people and it has always been an endurance competition. ZACH just one this one at 0220 BBT this morning. The winner of part three advances to the final part. The two loosers compete in part two which is usually a mind/memory competition. The winner of part two then competes head to head with the winner of part one this Thursday. The winner of part three is then the single HoH who then decides who will be evicted and who will be the one he/she goes against in the final two. Then the jury comes into play. The jury asks the final two people questions and decides who they want to win in a blind vote using keys in the HoH box which are drawn one at a time on the final night so we all see who wins. After their vote, the jury then gets to see video of what they did not get to see (diary room talk, etc.) and they see whether the voted for the right person or not, but they can't change their vote.

  7. On Night 99 the public choose their Final Two for the year... Now it is up to them to choose again.. Who will win? Only one day to go!
  8. Well Lassiters and Centrebet have released their final odds for the season. Guess who they say will win the whole thing! All season long, Travis has been the favorite to win. Finally last week Aleisha started creaping up the odds. But with the surprise of last sunday's eviction, the odds have taken a huge swing. Here are the current odds as of Tuesday July 24. WINNER of Big Brother 2007 ALEISHA 2.05 ZACH 2.15 TRAVIS 7.50 BILLY 31.00 This Sunday's Eviction BILLY 1.02 TRAVIS 1.10 ZACH 3.75 ALEISHA 17.00 If these odds hold true, and they have not been wrong all season, Sunday night will be a huge surprise to the twosome who have been chained together since this weeks 'Tethered Task' started. I can just hear the screams now!
