Multi-channel pan-African content provider M-Net’s new season of Big Brother Africa is offering a huge USD 300 000 prize to the winner of the seventh season of the popular 91-day reality series.
Right now the race is on to get into the Big Brother house with only days to go before the deadline for entries closes at midnight (CAT) on Monday, 27 February.
M-Net also reminds entrants that they must double-up to compete in this season. This means that anyone who wants to enter season 7 must partner with another person to enter as a pair.
Entry is open to citizens from Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Both partners must come from the same country, must be 21 years or older, must be fluent in English and must have a valid passport.
Interested persons can collect an entry form from the nearest MultiChoice office in their country, visit www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother and complete an entry form online, or download an entry form from the website, complete and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We’ve had positive feedback from BBA fans who love the challenge of entering in pairs,’ says M-Net Africa MD Biola Alabi. “It’s great to see them embrace the change so enthusiastically! And if you haven’t sent your entry in yet, please do so soon. We want to hear from you!’
She also confirmed that, once all the entries were in, the Endemol production team will identify the best entrants and these persons will be invited to a casting session. But if, for some reason, you don’t submit your paper entry in time, there is another option.
“We know that sometimes people do miss the cut-off for sending in their paper entry, so we’re opening the casting sessions again this year to late entries. Those people need to simply come to the casting venue and meet the team. However, a paper entry is still the very best way to get selected. It gives our teams more time to work through your entry in detail and increases your chances of participating.’
Casting will happen at Bassline in Johannesburg on 13,14 and 15 March.
M-Net’s Big Brother Africa 7 starts on DStv channel 198 on Sunday 6 May.
