Channel 7 launches its new season of Big Brother on Monday but filming actually took place months ago.
As with the 2020 season, filming was done in advance – a method suited to these Covid times.
This time the cast ranges from 20 somethings to 60 somethings, so there’s great age diversity, and most of the cast are already Insta famous. So we know they are there for the likes, but I wonder how many have actually watched the show.
From the promos Big Brother has really leaned into the more Survivor-style challenges – a far cry from the days of wearing silky costumes for its Friday Night Games (think It’s a Knockout).
Sonia Kruger is back (the Grant Denyer of Seven) as host.
It’s going to be tough, putting it up against MasterChef AND Lego Masters. I wish they would edit it for a 9pm time slot instead.
Big Brother is watching you, but will you be watching him?
