    House/Studio Location

    How big is the Canadian studio that is home to the house Kingston? I know the US one is about 15,000 square feet, which includes the house, studio and production offices. The Canadian studio is in a different studio to the house, but their house also includes the backyard, so require pretty...

    House/Studio Location

    TVBlackbox need to learn that putting "Exclusive" in front of something doesn't make it true, just like their "Exclusive" regarding Sonia hosting. Their only "Exclusive" which was true was the return of Big Brother, which they "exclusively" reported a week after TV Tonight did, yet still gloat...

    Anyone here ever been sent something they didn’t order?

    I think your conscience is telling you to send it back and you don't appear to want to profit from it or require the extra phone. I would advise contacting them though rather than simply sending it back and they should arrange for it to be returned themselves, which effectively means it's...

    Gran Hermano Sex Assault Case

    Gran Hermano has lost over 30 advertisers for it's current series since news of this broke, meaning their last eviction show had to air commercial free.

    Gran Hermano Sex Assault Case

    For me it was taking away her choices in the situation, both in her request to talk to the perpetrator and her request to talk to her friends. Now in the former case they could argue they were protecting her, but is that the producers decision to make? In the latter case they were clearly...

    Gran Hermano Sex Assault Case

    I'll post this without too much comment but a "sexual abuse" case in Spain raises all sorts of questions about the ethics of producing a show like Big Brother. I think the producers made a huge mistake of not letting the victim control the situation once they were made aware of it, but they...

    Private nominations should be abolished.

    I do blame Facebook and Twitter for the lack of Forum Ettiquette in this day and age but there is no way I should be having to delete three pages of posts on politics in a thread which is supposed to be about how nominations should be done in the new series. If it's not about Big Brother don't...

    Who will host in 2020?

    I've been vocal about Gretel not being the right choice for host in 2020 and I stand by that. I've also said the same about Mike being the narrator. However the pre-recorded nature, which means the narration could be done over a couple of days rather than being a 6 day a week 3 month...

    Big Brother 2020 production / schedule / format talk

    A classic BB Canada moment which is about moral dilemmas rather than pure game play - and I suspect that might be an angle the Aussie production like to take as well.

    House/Studio Location

    If you read the article ITV do put in their justification - the Sydney location helps them attract the judges, but I think crucially they know if they're struggling to find a space then other producers are as well, so they're taking the opportunity of solving a problem for themselves and also...

    What DON'T you want to see in Big Brother Australia 2020?

    Really does annoy me when producers make a select group of housemates, or even just one, the stars and then leave the rest as pretty much extras. However one advantage with the US format, and actually also if they pre-record it, is they can't edit the show to influence how the game might pan...

    Who will host in 2020?

    Absolutely not. Your presence here is practically ruining this discussion with your conservative views, so we don't want to see similar on screen too. Big Brother (and Behind Big Brother) should largely be an escape from the shitshow the world has become in the decade since the original BBAU...

    Private nominations should be abolished.

    Yes, the nominations in the US version are by the HoH only, and then at the end of the week the other housemates vote in the diary room for who goes. It's usually live so a simple "I vote to evict Aphrodite" for example - hope the pre-recorded nature doesn't mean they push for stupid reasons...

    Big Brother 2020 auditions

    One of the many factors in BBUK's demise was the use of reality rejects from other shows. The public just didn't want it - and it's important the show has people the audience can relate too, not people playing the reality TV role. To be fair although it has problems of it's own with casting I...

    Who will host in 2020?

    There must be enough people who've left Home and Away to choose from.

    Diverse casting should include conservatives

    Typical Trump fan - can't even spell Trump right.

    The Circle - Series 2

    Yes, the full group chats seem to virtually disappear midway through series 2 and I agree they seemed to fill the first series with more chats than the second.

    Who will host in 2020?

    Disagree with most of your posts in this thread but that is actually a good point. Yes, the cross can be done with no audience but the pre-recorded nature might make more face to face interaction with the host a possibility, perhaps not so much for the evictions (which I think will be done with...

    The Circle - Series 2

    Made it to the end now - was a great first series and I'm a bit baffled I didn't watch it last year. The casting is as brilliant as the second, though some of the latecomers are obviously eviction fodder to protect the originals. Sian though should have owned her move more as though it...

    Who will host in 2020?

    If Seven have bought Big Brother to supposedly attract a younger audience why on earth would they have a 55 year old presenting?
