    BBUS 24 - Now airing on CBS

    It takes something to be the most vile housemate in BBUS history, but Daniel has managed it. Zero class and so glad we're now rid. The Festie Bestie twist worked out alright in the end - the campaign against it before it even got going was ridiculous and ultimately what people feared became...

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    Really enjoyed your recaps of the first series - it takes me back 22 years. Baby Juanita of course was ripped off by Love Island and is now used towards the end of every series they do. I don't think it was something BBUK repeated. As for commercial music - so greatful UK TV has deals in...

    The Block

    Has their exit been covered on the show yet? The show has treated them appalling - almost Trumpian in style in trying to discredit them. If they left due to a family emergency then it's a family emergency and whatever producers and channel execs think, family comes before their reality...

    [Rumours] Big Brother is coming to France in 2023!

    Interesting. I actually think going the US format route is actually a wise move for them - means it will be more distinctly different from Secret Story and the format itself is very solid - it's just the US are the worst as producing their own format. The Quebec version seems to have been...

    BB/CBB UK - Rewatch discussions

    Not sure in Australia but that's one thing I liked in the early series - they had full control of their budget and unused food was carried over from one week to the next. In later series they just cleared the cupboards if they failed then gave them rations, which really was a complete waste of...

    CONFIRMED: BBUK to return in 2023 (Trailer - p3)

    The more interviews Marcus does the more convinced I am they've not asked him back. Most people have put two and two together to come up with that and if it is a studio based house it will almost certainly be there. However the short nature of the series and the quick turnaround, plus looking...

    The Block

    If a couple is to quit surely it's better all round for them to quit in the first week and give somebody else a chance rather than for it to happen a few weeks in when bringing in replacements to finish another teams work wouldn't really sit well with viewers.

    Will Big Brother be back in 2023?

    And that generally works because it's 30 minutes long, though here in the UK a weeks worth of episodes regularly air back to back. It's a show though where you can opt in at any point and still enjoy it, and you get a set up, some action and a resolution every half hour - rather than watching...

    Will Big Brother be back in 2023?

    I was looking at some classic Aussie TV guides yesterday (trying to find schedules for the Sydney Olympics, but could only find the Opening Ceremony) and really is noteable how back then the channels had proper schedules with multiple programmes a night in hour long slots and generally different...

    Will Big Brother be back in 2023?

    Viewers: MKR is ruined by focusing on the drama rather than the cooking Seven: OK then, we'll bring it back without the drama and focus on the cooking. Viewers: No, I'm not watching that.

    CONFIRMED: BBUK to return in 2023 (Trailer - p3)

    Hadn't heard that rumour. Although nobody would ever admit this I suspect the main reason Emma didn't get it was because she was pregnant and it was due very close to the end of their first series. Indeed not sure if Emma had to bail early from the series.

    I do think it's worth remembering that apart from the live elements that thanks to the live feed, 24/7 news cycle and forums like this place with the older series of Big Brother it was very rare to go into the episodes spoiler free.

    CONFIRMED: BBUK to return in 2023 (Trailer - p3)

    Sometimes leaving viewers wanting more is a good thing - BB Canada being just 10 weeks is probably always one or two weeks too short, but it means it moves along at a nice pace and doesn't drag out like the 100 day BBUSA series have in recent years - though they've chopped a couple of weeks off...

    How dare they not think about people watching the seasons in reverse. Just a reminder though of how desperate they were that year.

    Commonwealth Games 2022: Birmingham

    Favourite Aussie moment of the games - someone in the crowd at the Volleyball final shouting "Come on Australia - do it for Neighbours!" :cool:

    The Masked Singer Australia 2022

    It's the first show though - for the ones that go through they've got to milk this for weeks and ensure it isn't obvious to the viewers from show 1 who is who. More cryptic stuff like the Big Brother clue (he was on Celeb BB in the UK) is how you start things.

    I like the idea though of watching it backwards as generally speaking it'll only get better.

    Will Big Brother be back in 2023?

    Really hope Seven don't have a lockout clause in their contract like Nine had which kept rivals hands off it for 5 years after they had it. Then again given what Seven churned out perhaps Nine having a longer contract preventing them from getting their hands on it wouldn't have been such a bad...

    Will Big Brother be back in 2023?

    I doubt they will as it required too much imagination and effort but the only justification for casting only singles IMO is if you have a twist where initially they're coupled up and play as duos.
