Big Brother Africa III(3)
The third edition of Big Brother Africa show is set to begin on local tv screens starting from 24th August,2008 and ending on Sunday 23rd November(thats 91 days watch for reality tv enthusiasts)!The show will be screened 24/7 on DSTV Channel 198.Im certain that the eyes of many Kenyans(among many African colleagues) will be glued to their television screens ready to feast on the reality tv show which frequently features among other things obscene scenes(unfortunately the show has been the cause of many break ups and divorce cases due to the flirtatious nature of most contestants)!but i guess again thats what keeps the crowds glued to the screen in this day and age- talk of the debauched interests of a so called "modern society!"
The shows producers Endemol South Africa have already narrowed down the house mates(the application process closed on 30 April, 2008) to be unveiled at the grand opening show.The reality tv show will be screened across twelve countries i.e Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi,Namibia,Nigeria,South Africa(the big brotha house is located in Randburg)Tanzania,Zambia,Uganda,Zimbabwe.Most Kenyans probably remember Big Brother One which featured the Tusker Project Fames Host Gaetano Kagwa, but the new Big Brother Season III will be hosted by the scintillating Channnel O VJ presenter Kabelo Ngakane!
Interestingly the American Big Brother Show is in its 10th Season, while Africa is in its third season but again Africa has seen atleast five editions of the big brother series ...i.e Big Brother Africa I & II, Big Brother SA I & II and the latest entrant Big Brother Nigeria. Big Brother Africa III grand prize of US $ 100,000 was won by Tanzanian Richard Bezuidenhoutven.So who will win Big Brother III ?but i bet the question first is who has made it to the house?and will it be any interesting or a flop like Big Brother Africa II.....
