They must be desperate for content and got this at bargain basement prices. CBB US or BBCAN would have been much better options.
If we were talking about Channel 5 I’d agree.Yes - can't understand it other than a tedious Married at First Sight link which did really well for E4 when they picked it up during lockdown.
They've shown BBUSA before with BB4 and BB9, but guess the Aussie format is cheaper and wouldn't be surprised if Endemol are trying to ship the bargain basement version of the show to get back on air in the UK.
Thanks for using my graphicThe US are also getting the two recent Seven series via Paramount+, along with Big Brother Canada (but oddly not the 4th and 6th season, or 8th and 9th).
It’s going to be a mix bag… There are some that will enjoy the show for what it is and others that will fault find. I know that there is already a group of international fans that enjoy the current BBAU format just as much of not more than BBUS/BBCAN. I’m fact I know someone personally. The simple fact that it’s something different will be appealing to some.Can't wait for all the BBAU hate to start coming in from the US. Going from what they get each year to what Seven have produced is a massive downgrade.
There are parts of the show that are decent and fun, as a show itself. It's just as a season of BIG BROTHER it sucks.To be fair I think the challenges have been decent enough in the BBAU revival - it's just they're all basically the same and favour the same people rather than throwing in a decent mix of challenges to not just vary who will be stronger at them but to give some variation to viewers too.
There’s no denying that they’re Survivor challenges.To be fair I think the challenges have been decent enough in the BBAU revival - it's just they're all basically the same and favour the same people rather than throwing in a decent mix of challenges to not just vary who will be stronger at them but to give some variation to viewers too.
It’s not translated well because they’ve shoehorned one format in to another and really have no clue what format gets their attention. It seems there was zero effort put in to understanding what makes the North American format different from Survivor. Clearly someone heard the BBUS/CAN format is essentially Survivor in a house and threw together a literal interpretation of that notion.The thing is they do such a good job of producing Australian Survivor but that's not translated at all over to Big Brother, despite the crossover in production teams.
