Big Brother VIPs bare all

By SEVEN

Luxury hotel houses celebrity secrets

Shock confessions and intimate conversations replace the glitz and glamour of celebrity lifeas 12  VIPS bare their souls on Big Brother VIP coming soon to Channel 7 and 7plus.

Famous for writing a letter to Prince Harry in April 2018 pleading with him not to marry his sister Meghan, Thomas Markle Jnr is in the diary room when he announces to Big Brother he’s going to pen another letter to Meghan and his now brother-in-law, Harry, from the Big Brother hotel. 

“I’m gonna write a letter to Meghan,” shares Thomas with Big Brother. “Dear Meghan and Harry…The first thing I want to say to both of you…” will be revealed when the series airs.

After dinner one evening, Olympian and political candidate Caitlyn Jenner shares her trans journey with fellow hotel guests, reality TV fan favourite Luke Toki and fashion designer Imogen Anthony. Caitlyn uses an analogy of being born left or right-handed, to explain that being trans is no different. 

“You’ve probably never met anybody who is trans?” Caitlyn questions Luke. “Let me see if I can try to explain. Are you right-handed or left-handed? 

“Right-handed,” answers Luke. Hitting the point home, Caitlyn follows up, asking “Why are you guys right-handed and me left-handed?” 

“Well, it’s just the way you were born,” responded Luke, leading the group to a collective “ah” moment. 

Former AFL captain Dayne Beams opens up about his gambling and drug addiction spiral, “My wife, she’s been through a lot. Sorry if I get a bit emotional. I’ve been at rock bottom.”

Twelve VIPs are taking a vacation from their celebrity lives and checking into an experience like no other at Big Brother’s first-ever luxury hotel, where they will receive rockstar treatment with a Big Brother twist. Removed from the world they know, this elite group will be at the mercy of Big Brother’s wicked game; their every move watched as they face hilarious house tasks, epic nomination challenges and edge-of-your-seat eviction ceremonies; all while they eat, sleep and share a bathroom. 

They may all be stars, but only one winner will walk away with $100,000 for their nominated charity. Who wins? You decide. Hosted by Sonia Kruger, Big Brother VIP is produced by Endemol Shine Australia for the Seven Network.

More than meets the eye

By SEVEN

It’s time for Big Brother’s brilliant new season!

In 2020, one of the world’s biggest entertainment formats returned to Australian screens with a bang: Big Brother was back with a new voice, new format and new house filled with a modern melting pot of housemates.

Big Brother returns Monday, 26 April with an unpredictable, addictive and thrilling new season.

Next week, 20 housemates will enter the Big Brother house where they will live together for more than 60 days, cut off from the outside world, with cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day.

These housemates think they know Big Brother but with new rules and massive twists in a house full of secrets, they will have to think on their feet and play the game hard if they want to make it to the end.

Ultimately, three housemates will be left standing and, in a live Grand Final television event, Australia will vote to determine who deserves to win Big Brother and the $250,000 prize.

Who wins? You decide.

Big Brother’s game keeps getting bigger. The Seven Network today announced it has commissioned a special event series of the international mega-hit format – Big Brother VIP – which will debut on Australian screens later this year.

With the 2021 season of Big Brother set to kick off on Channel 7 and 7plus soon, today’s announcement underlines the success of the enduring and globally popular brand.

The new season of Big Brother looks fantastic. We can’t wait for Australia to meet this year’s amazing collection of housemates and to start discovering the many surprises and twists we have built into the show.

With anticipation for the new season building, the time is right to commission Big Brother VIP. The celebrity format is a proven success around the world. It was a hit here in Australia almost two decades ago and we’re looking forward to introducing a whole new generation of celebrities to Big Brother. Let the game begin.

Angus Ross, Seven Network Programming Director

We were thrilled to be able to bring the new Big Brother to life on the Seven Network last year.

Across last year’s season and the upcoming 2021 season, over 40 everyday housemates have had a chance to play Big Brother’s game. We now welcome a host of celebrities to a brand-new house, seal them off from society and see who can survive the twists, turns and surprises that Big Brother has waiting inside. Who will win?
