Format[edit]

Twists

Breaking the tradition of keeping housemates' identity a secret until the launch show, Mnet revealed 14 housemates 3 days before the launch. Only 1 of these 14 did not make it into the house. 13 other housemates were revealed during the live launch show on 1 May. This year half of the housemates are celebrities.

On the premiere, all the 26 housemates entered one house. On day 7, they were all removed from the house and joined the host- IK on stage inside the live audience studio during the Sunday night live show. Each housemate picked a glove randomly from a bag containing 26 gloves of different colors. The fate of the housemates depends on the color of their glove. 15 housemates with same colored gloves returned to the initial house which was later on called "Heads", the remaining 11 housemates were led to a destination which turned out to be another house called "Tails".

From day 35, evicted housemates throw a "Fuse" to the remaining housemates. The Fuse is a punishment done by a housemate in a week. The Fuse is similar to the "Molotov Cocktail"(in season 4;The Revolution) and the "Dagger"(in season 5; All Stars).

Two Winners (USD 400 000 up for grabs)

In an unpredictable twist of the season, On day 42 it was announced that there will not be only 1 winner as always but there will be 2 winners each receiving the USD 200 000 grand prize as planned, while the twist is revealed to the viewers, all housemates do not know anything about this until they are out. This is the first time in Africa for a reality show to give away USD 400 000 prize money. It is also the first time to have 2 winners on one Big Brother season.

Nominations

Every housemate is entitled to nominate 2 fellow housemates for eviction when requested by Big Brother in the Chat room(Diary room) this decision should remain a secret between the housemate and Big Brother. The head of house may also be nominated. If a housemate reveals their nominations to fellow housemates, they will be put up for possible eviction. Big Brother will announce the most nominated housemates to the house on Monday night during the live nomination show. The head of house is then called to the Chat room to save one housemate from nominations list and replace them with another housemate of the head of house's choice. While the decision is revealed to the voting public, the head of house must keep it as a secret until when they are asked to reveal the swap on the live eviction show on Sunday night. If the head of house reveals the swap without Big Brother's permission they will be penalised by being put up for possible eviction.

Task Wager

Housemates will wager a certain percentage(25% or 50% or 75% or 100%) of their weekly budget with Big Brother on their weekly task. Housemates will win their wager only if they are committed to the task and will be given extra "Decibels"(Big Brother currency) on their weekly budget to buy luxury items such as cigarettes, perfumes, e.t.c.

Friday Night Arena

On Fridays, housemates are blindfolded and leave the house for the nearby Big Brother Arena of Fun and Games. There are different games set for housemates each and every week.

Saturday Night Live

On Saturday nights, there is the popular live house party with ChannelO's The 411. The party with different themes each week brings the hottest DJs out of Africa on the decks live from the Big Brother house. The party is simulcast live on the biggest music television station in Africa, M-Net's ChannelO.

Eviction

The most anticipated eviction show is on Sunday nights. As on day 14 and 21, all the nominated housemates joined the host- IK on stage in the studio packed with an audience outside the Big Brother house. Surviving housemates returned to the house and the evicted housemates were left outside.

Amplified Crew

The Amplified Crew is a Hip-Hop Dance Group which performs at Big Brother Amplified Live Shows on Sunday nights. The group is an addition to the show this year to make the season more amplified.

Viewers Competition

There is a viewers voting competition every week in partnership with Samsung. There are laptops, digital cameras, smart phones, HD camcorders and galaxy tabs up for grabs courtesy of Samsung, there is also a DStv HD PVR Decorder up for grabs. Weekly winners are announced on the Sunday night live show.

The House (Heads and Tails)[edit]

The house is situated at Sasani Studios in Johannesburg.

This year the Mansion has 54 cameras and 120 microphones. It has also been completely redesigned from the previous season. Bright, Bold and Brand new, the house this year is a celebration of color, with vivid oranges, fresh greens and cheerful pinks complementing funky purple, sunshine yellow and cool blue. Fusing retro hip style with more modern contoured shapes, the house is playful, artistic and eclectic. It's a showcase of pop culture, filled with interesting contrasts and dynamic wall art while remaining a light filled space that is welcoming and warm. In addition, there are mirrors which act as camera windows almost everywhere, making the house a fully fledged studio. There are two houses side by side called Heads and Tails.

The Heads

Heads (Barn in the previous season) has a garden with two separate patios, one close to the house door and the other has the round jacuzzi and eviction door on it. The large lounge is side by side with the long fully equipped kitchen and dining area. The powerful Diary room(called Chat room) is next to the storeroom. There are 2 bedrooms, one upstairs and the other downstairs. The bathroom has a shower room, a bathtub and 2 toilets.

The Tails

Tails (the main house from season 2 to 5) has a large garden with a hexagon-shaped jacuzzi on the patio which is next to the fireplace. The special treatment room(Glass house) is in the garden between the eviction and house doors. Powerful Chat room is right next to the entrance. The storeroom is at the modern kitchen which is close to the open-plan dining and lounge. All the 2 bedrooms are upstairs. The bathroom has a shower room, a bathtub and a toilet.

As Africa was earlier informed that Big Brother had a big surprise installed on the live nomination show of the night, the never-miss nomination show of all time turned out to be the biggest twist in the game. All the Headsmates were called to the chatroom one by one and never returned to the Heads house, they were each blindfolded and led to an unknown destination separately. The destinations ended up being different secret doors in the Tails house(particularly in the glass-house, toilet and store room). The remaining Tailsmates were surprised to see the Headsmates coming in from the unusual corners of the house, some of which had not seen each other in 50 days since the split. It was the big reunion night as then all the 16 remaining housemates were staying in 1 house, the housemates finally merged!

week 13

On day 85, Africa started voting for the 2 winners of Big Brother Amplified. On day 87, all the finalists won a dream holiday trip each after each housemate presented their dream holiday to Big Brother, the task was sponsored by Wakanow.com. On day 88, housemates won their favourite liquor and drinks they wagered on the final weekly task, Duty Nostalgia which involved housemates reviewing the evicted housemates, tasks and the memorable moments of their stay in the Big Brother house.

The finale also featured DJs on the decks,Ghanaian DJ D Black was bringing it down in the Studio while SA's DJ Zinhle was rocking the Amplified Fan Park where a huge crowd of fans from across the continent gathered just outside the house next to the studio. IK had a brief visit to the house at the start of the live finale. Vina was the first one evicted followed by Hanni and then IK made a surprising announcement when he asked the top 5 to leave the house together and join him on stage in the studio where all evicted housemates were together with family and friends of the finalists and other fans. One by one the top 5 left the stage until only Karen and Wendall remained as they were surprised with the announcement that both won the USD 200 000 top price each.

About the show[edit]

Big Brother is an international television format that features a number of contestants living in an isolated house, while trying to avoid being evicted, and ultimately winning a large cash prize following a set number of days in confinement.

Big Brother Africa Six seasons on, and the incredibly popular Big Brother Africa has been Amplified. Running 91 days and 24/7 with a dream grand prize of USD 200 000, this season of Africa’s biggest reality show will include more of the drama, the emotion, the excitement and the suspense that have made the series a firm fan favourite.

M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi, breaks it down: "By definition amplified means to increase the volume, to make louder, to make more powerful. And that’s exactly what we want to do with season six."

Looking at the Eye With a dramatic new eye, etched in a carbon fibre background with an edgy, futuristic feeling and a sophisticated, polished, reflective finish, the newly unveiled show logo sets the scene for a bold new season!

The Housemates Big Brother Amplified will showcase Housemates from 14 countries this year: Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Big Brother has enjoyed a growing popularity across the continent and M-Net is pleased that it draws support from Africans across borders and outside of the nationalities represented. This serves to highlight that Africans support other Africans regardless of where they live or what their nationality is.

Big Brother is Watching, Big Time Big Brother Amplified is produced for M-Net by Endemol and will be filmed on location at Sasani Studios in a brand new House in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The series will once again be hosted by charismatic IK Osakioduwa. The fabulous host has been at the heart of the action since he joined the show two seasons ago.

BB Amplified Trivia[edit]

>>Jossy, Michael, Confidence and Felicia are the only BB Amplified housemates who never entered the Tails House.

Controversy[edit]

  • There was too much controversy about the voting and auditing process after M-Net did not produce proper voting results on day 42. This led to people concluding that the whole show was planned and viewers were fooled that they were the ones influencing voting results as they thought M-Net and Endemol were influencing the game to gain more profits.

Mnet released the clarified results audited and verified by Ernst & Young the following day after the controversy.

  • Ernest and Bhoke (the couple dubbed "EBhok") were hugely criticised for having sex in the Big Brother house.
  • There was controversy surrounding Luclay's punishment as it was not done accordingly. The punishment involved Luclay taking over all dish washing duties for as long as he is part of the Big brother show. This was not done and viewers felt that it was not fair since Lotus was evicted because of the same confrontation with Luclay.
