    The 2021 host

    I fail to see how this is any different from the live format? Nominated HMs would spend hours in the diary room each weekend where BB would coax useable lines for their exit packages (and record farewell messages). The show has always been hyper-produced. The live era was not as pure as some...

    Voice of Big brother 2020

    Chris dubs the producers lines in post. Why is this even an argument?

    House plans

    I'd suggest the white tent is props and storage. There's no way they're holding production equipment in an unsecured marquee (good luck insuring that), nor can I see any trace of cable ducts from the house. I'm 99% certain the control room is the larger caravan next to the airlock/bedrooms.

    Who will host in 2020?

    If Gretel was even brought in to discuss hosting for Seven, she would have abandoned it as soon as she understood how limited the role was going to be. Gretel knows her value. She left after '07 because the network wanting to "diversify" her role. She took a stand and threatened to leave, they...

    House plans

    I think there's a lot of room for improvement with the house layout for the next series. Like you said, there's a lot of wasted space and a properly designed living room could be converted to an eviction space with something as simple as a change of lighting. It was awkward and sloppy to watch...

    The day after thoughts.

    Two issues with that. First, even 99% of Gretel's dialogue was scripted. They rehearse and edit to make sure they hit their time marks and ensure it doesn't sound too canned, and even then, there's a producer in your ear. Second, Sonia can't even make scripted dialogue work. She's a poor...

    House plans

    My final version - updated to include fixtures. If anyone wants to attempt to get actual floor plans, you could try submitting an FOI request to the Harbour Trust although they'll probably charge you.

    House plans

    I haven't marked any furniture, but the space for the couch/fish tank is there. The entrance corridor stops where it opens to the living room.

    Post BB Housemate Antics - Part 5

    Beats are logged by producers in real time and story editors weave them into narratives (segment, episodic, series). Editors then pull raw footage based on the beats they've been given by producers for each segment and it's a back-and-forth process to refine.

    A host should not be showing potential at the end of their fourth season. It's time to go...

    Final 3 Confirmed. Open for spoiler.

    I didn't enjoy Dan as a person. But his girlfriend story arc was pretty much limited to one episode mid-series and aside of that, he actually pushed the game forward from the earlier days. Whilst I don't like Dan's character, I can appreciate that he actually brought something to the table (even...

    Final 3 Confirmed. Open for spoiler.

    Chad and Sophie were redundant housemates. Neither actively contributed anything meaningful to the series. They only appealed to the public because of their sob stories. They weren't capable of making the tough calls when they won challenges. They survived by circumstance which is the least...
