Big Brother is only a week away and housemates are in lock down,so it’s now time to start the final countdown by revealing some surprises
The new season will feature a Friday Night Games style program called Saturday Showdown. The show will air for the first four weeks of the new season. with commentary and light-hearted analysis from Mike Goldman and Michael Beveridge, will see housemates compete for riches and favour. Results and rewards from the showdown will have something to do with making them feel there’s a bit of a hierarchy in the house. The showdowns will form an integral part of the much-publicised but carefully-guarded Big Brother “twist” which is this season’s theme. according to the Sunday Telegraph.
After the news was released Big Brother released the following statement on the Show’s official Website
This is Big Brother. My fellow Australians, Big Brother is way too sensible to believe in superstition, but I do like the number 13, and so in honour of this number i’ve decided to make 2013 lucky for some. Big Brother understands there has been much discussion around the twist I have plotted for this year’s launch and now I have my housemates safely in lockdown I have decided to break my silence. On Monday 29th of July 2013, Sonia [Kruger, host] will introduce you to twelve new housemates. On night one there will be division in the house, as some will be in and some will be halfway out.
The house is modern and opulent, but within it lays the first twist. Twelve seems a lonely number when you’re not united, so holy matrimony could be just the trick. As my dear old mother used to say, do unto others. I wonder if my housemates will be nice to their other halves.
Human nature has always been Big Brother’s obsession, watching as these strangers learn to deal with the deprivation and reward of Big Brother’s house. What is it like to live on handouts from the wealthy? Big Brother has decided it is time to find out.
Listen carefully as Big Brother spells it out. This year housemates will be in out and shaken all about. With 52 cameras you cannot be missed, there is no hiding from the Big Brother twist. Until Monday 29th, that is all. Sincerely, Big Brother
