  1. 4:30PM The Six Minus Neda have a Conference. Sindy tells Bruno she told Ika that she trusts Bruno "so much." Bruno: "Good." Sindy: "They [Demetres and Ika} really like you. I said we [The Six] are all going to have different targets and have to respect whoever is HoH." Sindy says Neda defends keeping Dillon and Emily, saying Neda feels like "They are only going after Ika &Demetres." Sindy tells Bruno that Ika got upset with Neda because she wont support her going after Dillon and Emily if she wins HoH. Sindy: "They [Ika&Demetres] are doing what they said. They are diverting the target off Kevin&Bruno." Bruno: "They are doing great. I dont care if they win and take a shot at Emily & Dillon. If I take a shot at Dre & William, they should be fine." Sindy: "The only person who doesnt like we arent on the same target line is Neda. Everybody else is like go after who you want. Dre really likes you. Dre and I had a really good conversation last night. I feel like we are back on. I really trust Ika." Bruno: "Me too." Sindy:"Apparently Neda said some smack about me to Demetres." Neda told Demetres she thinks that I threw the comp, and she is frustrated I'm annoying and only talk about myself. If she [Neda] genuinely thought I threw the competition or that I'm not pulling my weight, come talk to me. Bruno: "I'd still rather have Dre out before him (William). Sindy: "I'd prefer him over Dre...to leave. If it's a double, I'm going to put Jackie and Karen. Whare are doing?" Bruno: "Dre and Will." Kevin: "Karen and Dre." Sindy: "Obviously we have our own targets. Whoever wins HoH, they have to go after their target." Kevin: "Who would Neda put up?" Sindy: "I think Dre and William. That's the only group I don't connect with." Bruno: "On a personal level I do like Dre. I can't connect. That's my problem. I want to talk to her." Ika: "We are keeping people who are going to put us on the block and evicting people who are not, but okay. Are you trying to win HoH, Kevin? " Kevin: "Yes." Ika: "OK." Kevin: "No way I'd throw it." Ika: "Just asking." Kevin: "I will win to keep you guys safe." Ika: "We'll see." Kevin: "Do you believe me?" Ika: "I dont know." "I just feel like this is a one sided alliance. Dre and William are not coming after you guys. You guys are keeping people in this game who are coming after us and are taking people out who are not after you. It's weird that there are three people after me and Demetres yet you wont even nominate one of them. I feel like I am being hung out to dry." Bruno: "No no no no no. It's not like that." Kevin: "I'll compete and win to keep you safe." Ika: "We've been working to keep you guys safe. We've stuck our neck out. We have took out people not coming after us." Bruno: "If we start going after them, it's a mess. We have full control this way." Demetres: "You guys are saying you cant flip Dillon." Ika: "When did Jackie become such an important member in your life?" Bruno: "I dont care. I dont give a fuck for Jackie." Kevin: "Jackie is not important to me at all. I can put up Karen and Jackie. Jackie threw us under the bus?" Sindy: "Yeah. She said you [Kevin&Bruno] and Neda are the three headed monster." Demetres: "Do you see where we are coming from? We took Cass out. Cass wasnt coming after us." Ika: "Cassandra was not after me, Dallas was not after me. I did it for the alliance. I dont feel the alliance is doing much for me. I dont want to keep Emily and Jackie in this house, but I did it." Bruno: "We have the numbers." Demetres: "You guys are telling us you have no control over Dillon." Bruno: "If we start firing at this side, it's going to make a mess." Demetres: "We know we can get them [Dre&William] to put only one (of The Six) up if they win. I didnt want to fucking win that last HoH. I didnt even fucking vote for them (to go up). Ika: "I dont feel like you guys will want to win HoH." Sindy: "We do." Kevin: "I want to win so bad." Bruno: "I'm going for it." Demetres: "If it's a knock-out comp, we cant have all of you attacking the same two." Sindy: "Jackie is telling people that you, Bruno and Neda are the three people running that side of the house." Kevin: "Let's take out Jackie and we can balance out the side. I have never had any doubt at all." Ika: "Easy for you to not have doubt. You see what we are doing. The people whose asses are on the line in this alliance are me and Demetres' Why are you pushing those three people [Dillon/Emily/Jackie] further who are coming after your alliance members? It seems you guys want them to come after us." Kevin: "Not at all. After hearing your opinion, I have now switched to Jackie." Ika: "I was in a shitty alliance Season 2 and I dont want to be in a shitty alliance Season 5. It sucks. I'm the only person honest about my feelings and I will be 'the bitch.'". Sindy: "I'm glad you're able to speak your mind. We have to find a mutual target for the alliance." Kevin said they can make it Jackie. If we want to make a mutual target, Jackie is the perfect one to pick. She has gone to four different alliances.
  2. 2:30PM BBT: Liz: "Either Steve or Austin is coming after me." Julia: "I feel like 100% Steve and Austin have a Final Two deal." Liz: "Seriously? No way." Julia: "Who do you think Austin is bringing to the finals?" Liz: "I don't know, probably Vanessa." Julia: "I feel like one of us leaving is best for our game anyways. We're not a threat anymore. I wish you and Austin weren't a thing. If Austin was gone and it was us two, you would 100% be the one to stay. I'm just worried that you and Austin are 100% going to be nominated again." Liz: "From here on out, with me, if I don't win I'm going on the block. You are not touching the block. If you stay, you just win one more HoH, you are good. We can't ever say what we are doing with the money-- ever." Julia: "That's what I told you."
  3. 1:31PM BBT:: Godfrey and Sindy talked about sticking together if they make it through the week. Sindy said that she does not trust Bobby at all. Godfrey said she shouldn't trust Bobby, it seems like he wants her out. Sindy said if Bobby wins the PoV she'll call him out if he wins the veto, saying that he is her target. Sindy doen't believe that Bobby has a secret PoV veto that he claimed to find in the vault, but only told her about it after the timer ran out. Sindy said that Bobby told her that he did this so that she would not push the button. 2:00PM BBT:: Godfrey told Bobby and Bruno that Sindy is telling people that Bobby has a secret veto that he found during their final minutes in the vault. Bobby: "It's true, I did tell her, and I knew I was taking a risk, 'cause she's tell everyone and soon it would get around the whole house." Bobby tells Godfrey that he did them because they aren't really supposed to talk about what happened in the vault. Bobby said that he assumes that the whole house knows about the veto now. Godfrey thinks it would be good strategy for Bobby to tell everyone that the secret veto is not real. But, Bobby thinks people would think he can't be trusted and a liar, so he may just have to fess up about the veto and go with it. Later, when Godfrey and Bruno were alone, Godfrey asks if he knew that Bobby has a veto. Bruno said no. Godfrey said that he may or may not have it, but it seems like he does.
  4. It looks like the SSB alliance is already over. Brittnee and Sarah agree they're not putting their neck on the line for Sindy. 12:25AM BBT: Bobby tells Ashleigh: "Sindy's a big target, Godfrey's a big target. You guys can take them out in whatever order you want." Bobby says he was the last person they approached about the flip so he doesn't feel too good about them. In the HoH room, Pili tells Kevin that she wants to make the best move for them and Ashleigh and Zach. After some snogging, Kevin and Pilar break out the M&Ms to do some strategic planning. Pilar asks Kevin who flipped the house? "Who did that?: Kevin: "The people who voted are Sarah, Brittnee, Bobby, Bruno and Sindy. Kevin thinks that Brittnee and Sarah aren't after them. Pili tells Kevin she wants to put up a pawn and a person she wants out, but she will try to backdoor the person she really wants out. Kevin: "All of us wanted Godfrey out the first week and look where he is at..."
  5. Willow tells Bobby that it was a smart move to vote out JP, Willow tells Bobby she still tight to him and Bruno. Willow asks if he thinks they're still good with Zach. Bobby tells her that he hopes so, "It's not like it was just me and Bruno, clearly everyone was scared of JP." Willow: "It was a smart move, if you are going to put your best friend on the block, why not take a shot at them?" Willow says she wants to wring Sindy's neck for lying to her. She tells Bobby, Kevin and Sarah that Sindy said it was Kevin that voted JP out, and Sindy told Kevin it was Willow. Bobby tells Bruno, Kevin, Sarah and Willow that he wants Sindy gone, "If I won HoH, she would be up." Bobby thinks he made a genius move by taking Sindy out of the HoH competition.
  6. Donald Trump on 'Brutal' New Season of 'Celebrity Apprentice' Donald Trump, executive producer and star of NBC’s “The Celebrity Apprentice,” announced on TODAY this morning the new and exciting lineup of famous faces that will compete in the seventh installment of the series. The new season will premiere on Sunday, Jan. 4 from 9-11p.m. ET/PT before settling in its
  7. After spending an entire season moping over her dead husband Matthew and then setting Blake (Julian Ovenden) off against Gillingham (Tom Cullen), it really is about time that Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) committed to one man. This year, Dockery promises that Mary will start to move forward. "Mary will never get over the death of her husband," she says, in her trailer on lunch break in a dressing gown and hairnet, "but she wants to experience things — she wants to experience another man again." And by experience, she means… exactly what you think. At first, at least, it seems that she has finally made her mind up who that man will be. And (minor, we're-so-bored-of-this-love-triangle-thing-we-don't-really-mind-telling-you, spoiler alert) it's the pomaded suave machine Gillingham who gets the nod. The duo sets off on an away weekend to a hotel room for a weekend of what the British ruling class might call rumpy-pumpy. As further evidence that Lady Mary is a woman who knows that in the post-First World War world, women had begun to have choices, Mary is aware that you shouldn't jump in to bed with anyone, no matter how well bred, without some protection. But being Lady Mary, she's not going to be seen at the apothecary buying contraceptives herself. So she sends off her long-suffering lady's maid, Anna (Joanne Froggatt) to do the dirty work. "Anna's attitude is that Mary shouldn't sleep with Lord Gillingham before marriage," says Froggatt. "It's not the fact that she morally disagrees with it I don't think, it's more the fact that if people find out it will ruin her. In terms of Anna going to buy the contraceptive and everything, Anna's quite mortified about that actually. Even in this day and age it's pretty embarrassing having to do something like that, so for a woman back then… well, it's almost unthinkable for Anna." As for Anna Bates herself, this new season sees her still dealing with the aftermath of her controversial rape at the hands of Mr. Green last season, and his subsequent death under a car in London. Was it at the hands of Mr. Bates, as last year's finale led us to believe? Or was Anna herself implicated in Green's death? Over the coming weeks we will see the Anna/Bates relationship, a fan favorite, once again put through the wringer as the police start asking questions about what happened that day in London. But let's not stray from our subject — even the saintly Bates and Anna are still thinking about making babies. "She's married to a man she loves and I think she just wants to be happy and be able to enjoy being married and enjoy work until such time as a baby may come their way," says Froggatt. "She wants to have children but most of all she just wants a normal, uneventful life, really." As the wedding anniversary party approaches Cora — endlessly ignored by Robert, who's fretting over everything from the placing of a War Memorial on the Downton Estate to his own ailing dog — is beginning to feel the weight of 34 years of marriage. "She's raised her children and now she's sort of looking for something else," says McGovern, who is owed a decent plotline or two. "She's an American who's slightly more open to new ideas. We'll see where that leads," she adds. One 'new idea' Cora might be open to appears at the season's beginning with the emergence of the dashing Simon Bricker, an art historian played by Girls' Richard E Grant, who seems as enamored of Cora as he is of Downton's della Francesca. "His interest excites her, yes," says McGovern. "But at the same time she recognizes that what she has with Robert is special too – a different type of love. Something I like about this season is that there's a lot of looking at love — young love, very mature love, old love, love that's gone wrong." . In Downton's most illicit coupling of the season involves an upstairs-downstairs romance — one-sided though it may be — between Lady Anstruther (Anna Chancellor), the high-born cougar who's out to snare footman Jimmy (Ed Speleers). All of Speleers' scenes to date have been played 'downstairs' in the kitchen (which is filmed at Ealing) or 'upstairs' in the dining room (at Highclere). But today he finds himself in a bedroom for the first time, and it's Lady A's fault. "Lady Anstruther's one of the sexiest characters, I think, that Downton's ever seen," says Speleers. "She's very, very elegant, very flamboyant with her fashion and she makes quite an entrance. All the heads turn. Even Lord Grantham might choose to admit that he does have his eye on her as well." But Lady Anstruther has her eye firmly on Jimmy, who used to work with her in another house and has been foolish enough to rekindle the relationship by sending her a Valentine's Card. Of course, for Jimmy sleeping with one of the aristos is out of the question. Unfortunately, he just can't help himself. "I think he enjoys attention from women, and especially wealthy ladies," says Speleers. "You know, he is an ambitious guy and there's always that hope this could lead to something else for him." Or it could be career suicide — if Jimmy and his libidinous Lady get caught. Where would that leave Thomas (Rob James Collier) Jimmy's long term admirer, latterly friend and Downton's pantomime villain-in-chief? "Early in this series Jimmy says to Thomas: 'I hope you find the one you're looking for,'" says Collier. "It sort of really hits home hard with Thomas because he realizes maybe he can't, you know, find the one he wants —because he's a gay man. He'll never be allowed to truly love because it's illegal and 'against God.' So we do see him question himself and his sexuality for the first time, and in a dark and perverse way try to change his own nature." Carson and Mrs. Hughes: Dare to Dream? Other loves that dare not speak their name include the unspoken feelings between Mr. Carson (Jim Carter), the head butler, and housekeeper Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan). The last season ended with them holding hands, paddling by the seaside, a picture of later-life contentment. Surely they of all people deserve a romance? "In the early episodes there's nothing furthering their little paddle in the sea," reports Logan, who looks a little disappointed herself that the couple we would all like to see together seem stuck on hold. Jim Carter goes further. "Everybody asks the question, 'Are Carson and Mrs Hughes going to get it together?' and I just say, 'Well, on the evidence I've seen, I can't tell you because I've no idea.' They are two sort of rather lonely people, stumbling towards each other. It would be a tremendous disappointment, I have to say, if nothing happened." Along with the Anna/Bates, who-killed-Green storyline that runs across the entire fifth season, we'll see dramatic developments: Edith continues to grow closer to her not-so secret baby; Lady Rose shocks the blue bloods again with her new (and Jewish) lover Atticus; and Robert loses his beloved dog Isis (and no, the dog's unfortunate name, given current world events, has nothing to do with its fate). Shown already in the UK, Downton's ratings have fallen off slightly from the heights of the last three series, leading to much speculation about how many more seasons the Crawley clan and their domestic help have left. "I get asked that question more than any other," says exec producer Gareth Neame. "My two-penn'orth would be that when people like something so much, they don't want to really contemplate it ending — so they keep asking the question. It's a bit tiresome to keep answering it, particularly when you read these things that are statements of fact saying, 'The present season is the last one,' and then I have to say, 'No, it isn't.'" True: Downton has been renewed for a sixth season, but beyond that there are currently no further commitments. Julian Fellowes, meanwhile, conjures up a suitably oblique response to the question of when the pre-eminent modern British period drama will end: "There's a line from Carson in the opening episode this year that says, 'The nature of life is not permanence, but flux.'" Downton Abbey Season 5 premieres Sunday, Jan. 4, 2015, on MASTERPIECE on PBS.
  8. It's official: Game of Thrones will be down two familiar faces when it returns for Season 5 in 2015. Actor/DJ Kristian Nairn, who plays Hodor on the HBO fantasy series, left many fans confused when he let it slip over the summer that both he and Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) will be absent for all of the upcoming season. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, not only has that little nugget of information been confirmed, but we know exactly why Bran and Hodor are taking a season-long vacation: Just as many fans of the source novels expected, their characters won't appear because they've gone as far as they can at the moment. The next chapter of their story hasn't even been published yet! Executive producer and showrunner David Benioff told EW, "The fact is, even though we're making changes to the books and adapting as necessary, we're trying to keep the various storylines the same as the books and trying to keep them roughly [chronologically] parallel. And last year we caught up to the end of Bran's storyline [in the most recent book, A Dance with Dragons]. So if we pushed him forward this season, then he's way ahead of where the other characters are." "It made sense to stop where we did," Benioff continued, noting that Bran's character is now entering a period of training after having found the Three-Eyed Raven at the end of Season 4. "Rather than being stuck in a cave for a year, we figured it would be interesting to leave him out for a little bit." Of course, that's all well and good for Bran, but none of this tells me what's happening to little Rickon Stark. But no one seems to be asking that question. Anyway, are you bummed to know that the next time you see Bran on your television screen, he'll appear to be approximately 35 years old? Or are you happy that Game of Thrones' writers aren't shoehorning him in and padding his story the way they did with Theon Greyjoy's (Alfie Allen)?
  9. AMERICAN IDOL Season 5 Finalist Chris Daughtry recorded the theme to UTOPIA. You can download the MP3 of it here: https://app.box.com/s/vidduwusa8hdtujrvkhh It’s a little rock, a little pop -- a great addition to the American Idol alum’s sound. Listen to the song above, and check out the lyrics below. (As Daughtry sings, “That’s a good place to start.”) Hear his sweet voice again when UTOPIA premieres this Sunday, Sept. 7! Chris Daughtry is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Daughtry and as the fourth-place contestant on the fifth season of American Idol. After his elimination from Idol, he was given a record deal by RCA Records and formed a band called Daughtry. Their self-titled debut album became the fastest selling debut rock album in Nielsen Soundscan history, selling more than one million copies after just five weeks of release. The album was recorded before the band was officially formed, making Chris Daughtry the only official member present on the album. In its ninth week of release, Daughtry reached number one on the Billboard charts. Chris Daughtry is now the third most successful American Idol contestant in terms of record sales, behind only Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, who both won their respective seasons. At the 50th Grammy Awards, the band was nominated for Best Rock Song for the single "It's Not Over".

  10. Joan Rivers -- who made the world laugh for over 50 years with her jokes, put-downs and one-liners -- has died in NYC ... a week after her heart suddenly stopped beating during vocal cord surgery. She was 81. Joan's daughter Melissa Rivers took her mom off life support so she could pass comfortably in a private room. The death has been reported to the NYC Medical Examiner's Office -- and officials tell TMZ the office will open an investigation to determine cause of death. Melissa just issued a statement saying, "It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers." "She passed peacefully at 1:17 PM surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of Mount Sinai hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother." "Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support and prayers we have received from around the world.They have been heard and appreciated." "My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon." Rivers is widely credited for opening doors for countless female comediennes. She broke through in a big way during her appearances on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson. She also famously enraged Carson by accepting a gig to host a competing late night show on FOX. Carson never spoke to her again. Rivers was born in 1933 -- she worked as a writer and fashion consultant before entering show biz as a stand-up comic in the early '60s. She was famously self-deprecating ... often self-critical of her looks and her marriage to Edgar Rosenberg ... who committed suicide in 1987. Joan's late '80s FOX show tanked, which somewhat derailed her career. It was resurrected in a big way in 2010 in the wake of the documentary "Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work." She was universally adored by fellow comedians, including fellow legend Don Rickles, who once said about her ... "Joan is not only a very intelligent lady, but extremely masterful at comedy timing. Sharing the stage with her has always been a joy for me."
  11. Utopia: First Look

    Utopia has no prize, few rules and little of the highly structured, tension-building design of a standard reality TV show. That doesn't mean Fox's experiment in society-building (Sunday, 8 p.m. ET/PT), based on a Dutch series from Big Brother creator John de Mol, has lacked drama. In just the first weekend of production, Utopia's 130 robotic cameras have recorded one participant coming dangerously close to expulsion after an alcohol-fueled outburst; another being treated for dehydration; a third threatening to leave after an argument over a chicken; and two more, a preacher and a former inmate, clashing over religion. One was removed for violating rules before filming even started. "The first few days have shown us that far more happened dramatically than I would have expected," says executive producer Conrad Green, sitting in an observation area in front of an all-seeing control room that might be embraced by both NASA and the NSA. With so little guidance, actual events and producers' expectations can diverge at the rustic, five-acre parcel an hour northwest of Los Angeles, where 14 "pioneers" with strong opinions and limited supplies — $5,000, a barn, a few farm animals, rudimentary tools to set up plumbing and access to electricity — have agreed to spend up to a year for the opportunity to build their own world. Little escapes the observation of those behind the social experiment. On Tuesday, in an industrial-looking gray building just a few hundred yards from the pioneers, 17 producers, camera operators and loggers watch the pioneers at the pond, the orchard, the stable and other areas on more than 30 computer monitors and video screens, some carrying as many as a dozen camera feeds. With no cameramen or "confessional" interviews, contact with producers is kept to a minimum. The various cameras record 288 hours each day. Some footage is streamed at UtopiaTV.com and on a mobile app on a slight delay in both free and paid versions (the paid version is uncensored), and producers in a nearby building edit it for TV. There were no apparent arguments or rowdy behavior on the monitors Tuesday afternoon. Some pioneers talked in small groups, some took a dip in the pond and others worked to connectelectrical power. With that task completed by evening, pioneers could charge a phone, gaining access to the outside world to help sustain their community. Outsiders can come in to sell or buy — should the pioneers start a business — but Utopia residents can't leave. Utopia, which airs regularly on Tuesday and Friday (8 ET/PT), is different from Big Brother and similar shows, de Mol says. "Big Brother is a game and a competition, where Utopia is a social experiment and a group process. Where the inhabitants in Big Brother operate on their own, the Utopians only can be successful if they work together." The pioneers , an ethnically and politically diverse group that includes a survivalist prepper, a gun-loving libertarian, a self-described "hillbilly MacGyver" and a woman involved in polyamorous relationships, can generate intriguing debate — and conflict. In real life, "most communities that try to do something like this are self-selecting, deciding to live with people with a very similar view of the world," Green says. "In this case, we decided to try to reflect the diverse range of social classes, opinion and political views in America." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3fu7j02Mks Executive producer Jon Kroll describes Utopia "in some ways (like) The Real World on steroids," but says it differs from other unscripted shows. There's "the lack of structured elements and format, the lack of rules, the type of cast. These are not your typical people who would go on a reality game show or just want to be on TV. They are people who are committed to doing better than America has at starting a society," he says. There are no guarantees of how a show without a winner, challenges or prizes will perform in the U.S., and if the show is canceled, the pioneers will be sent packing. "It's a leap of faith doing a show like this," Green says. "I think that you have to believe that people are essentially interesting."
  12. CBS has just dropped huge Big Brother 16 spoilers on us! We now know who are the first 8 Houseguests in to the house on premiere night and by extension who will be the second group on Thursday. Not only that we get to see the first Big Brother Head of Household competition as well! Julie Chen is there hosting the first HoH comp, an endurance battle, which is a repeat of the Bull In A China Shop comp from last season. HGs are playing it as “Go Fly A Kite” this season and it’s them holding on to a rope and walking along the rolling barrel. Last player standing wins HoH for Group 1. We still don’t know if they’re a “team” or not. In Group 1 you’ll find Joey Van Pelt, Amber Borzotra, Frankie Grande, Nicole Franzel, Paola Shea, Donny Thompson, Devin Shepherd, and Cody Calafiore. The mix should confirm what I argued: no Battle of the Sexes on Big Brother 16. That leaves the other half for Group 2 which will move in on Thursday night and battle in their own HoH competition. Then we’ll be seeing Brittany Martinez, Caleb Reynolds, Christine Brecht, Derrick Levasseur, Hayden Voss, Jocasta Odom, Victoria Rafaeli, and Zach Rance.
  13. Denzel Mwiyeretsi, one of Uganda's last BBA representative The ninth edition of Africa’s biggest reality series, Big Brother Africa, kicks off in September. To dispel earlier gossip that countries would be represented by people who had participated before, the organisers came out to clear the air, saying there would be new faces, and now fresh auditions are here. Uganda auditions will take place on July 7 and 8, at Kampala Sheraton hotel. Unlike in previous years, this year’s entry process is slightly different, as potential housemates are invited to come in their numbers for auditions in their respective country venues. Entry is restricted to persons over the age of 21, who are citizens of one of the participating countries and have a valid passport. If you are open-minded, bold and adventurous, that is even better. Previous editions of BBA have offered huge cash prizes to winners, and it is no different this time round as the prize money is $300,000. Africa Magic, under DStv, has been associated with unearthing, nurturing and recognising talent from around the continent. And Big Brother Africa is one of the shows that have become famous for transforming ordinary citizens into stars. Gaetano Kaggwa is one of Uganda’s most successful representatives and his fortunes changed after he represented the country in the first season of BBA. “We hope the season will be even better as we strive to improve on our offering season after season. We will not hold back on the quality and exciting unpredictability that has become synonymous with Big Brother Africa,”reads a statement from the organisers. “Audiences and fans can expect yet another high quality production, and of course, another group of fun-loving housemates who will keep you guessing on who will be left standing come day 91.” The reality TV show will be screened live 24/7 on DStv channels 197 and 198, while GOtv audiences will see highlights of the show, which begins on Sunday September 7 and is scheduled to run for 91 days. baranga@observer.ug
  14. Ariana Grande is used to paparazzi following her every move, but now her half brother Frankie is the one who will have cameras on him 24 hours a day as a contestant on the new season of Big Brother. "I've always said I was funny and I should have my own reality show," Frankie, 31, tells PEOPLE of what inspired him to audition for the CBS reality competition's 16th season. "And then I thought, 'Maybe I should be on somebody else's show!' " While he initially auditioned for Survivor, a chance meeting with a Big Brother casting director led to Frankie becoming one of the 16 contestants competing for a $500,000 prize this summer. Big Brother has had cast members with notable relatives in the past – former Survivor super-villain Russell Hantz's brother Willie and Big Brother season 13 winner Rachel Reilly's sister, Elissa Slater, both competed in previous seasons – but Frankie is actually more worried about being recognized as a YouTube personality than as a Grande. "I don't want people knowing I have an online following because it will put an unnecessary target on my back," says Frankie, who has a YouTube channel with more than 185,000 subscribers and nearly 10 million views. "If there is an America's Vote or America's Player, they might assume that I will win it." But don't expect that Frankie is going to openly admit who his half sister is, either. "I'm going to drop Grande and just use my father's last name, Marchione," says Frankie, who only plans on revealing his famous relative towards the end of the season. "If I get recognized, I'm going to have to win Head of Household and do damage control. If I don't, I plan on flying under the radar the first few weeks." Regardless of how Frankie does in the three-month-long competition, he knows he will have a fan in his little sister. "I got to call Ariana on camera and tell her what I was doing and she just said, 'I know how much you love the show. Go make them fall in love with you … but don't show them all of you because a lot of people will hate you for that, ' " says Frankie. "We both get so much hate online but it is usually about ourselves. I'm hoping there is more love than hate on me while I'm on the show because Ariana was like, 'I'm going to kill myself if I have to read hate about you too.' " As for Frankie's love for reality competition, he would still jump at the chance to compete on Survivor – but if it is another season of Blood vs. Water, don't expect Ariana to be competing alongside him. "She could never. She isn't a Survivor type. She's a diva," he says. "I'm a diva too, but I've done charity work in Africa and spent weeks in huts without electricity and running water. She's never done anything like that and I couldn't ask her to." "But if they wanted to helicopter her in from a hotel every day for like 20 minutes, I think she'd win." The new season of Big Brother starts June 25 on CBS.
