Big Brother Africa (franchise) is a continental version of Big Brother for the continent of Africa.

How It WorksEdit

Big Brother is a reality television show in which a group of people live together in a large house, isolated from the outside world but continuously watched by television cameras. Each series lasts for around three months, and there are usually fewer than 15 participants. The housemates try to win a cash prize by avoiding periodic evictions from the house.

African SeriesEdit

The African version of the show largely follows the same format as the original Swedish version of Big Brother where each week the housemates will nominate two of their fellow housemates for eviction and the public will then vote to evict the two (or more) housemates who received the most nominations. Although the house is located in South Africa, many different countries can send housemates into the house to compete.

This series is different from many other series, due to the fact that many different countries can compete in the house, rather than one. At the start of the series, twelve different countries competed. Five other countries have been added since the debut of the show.
