GENERAL BBAU

Q1: Where is the Big Brother House?
It is located at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast, always has been, always will be.*
Google Maps Link

Q2: Do they make a new house every year?
No. They renovate the existing one, the same basic outer shell/structure of the house has remained since the show started in 2001.

Q3: How do I get tickets to the live shows?
Check out the Dreamworld Big Brother Live Shows page.

Q4: Who is the voice of Big Brother?
The main voice is that of Leon Murray, see his show reel here

Q5: I'm an international fan, what the heck is going on? why arent they _____?
just like any regional BB, we're different and have different rules and format, some of the biggest differences are:
- We have an actual Big Brother who talks to the HMs, enforces the rules, and interviews them in the diary room.
- Each HM has 5 nomination points to split between 2 other HM, the HMs with the most points are up for eviction, decided by public vote.
- No discussion of nominations or strategy is allowed.
- Breaking the rules will either give you Noms points or a strike, 3 strikes and you're out.
- No smoking.

BEHIND BIG BROTHER

Q1: Whats the best way for me to be loved at Behind Big Brother?
Be nice and respect the opinions of others and respect the people who have been here longer than you. It can get quite nasty here during the on-season. Follow the rules of common sense or you’ll be banned.

Q2: Who is this Alex person everyone bangs on about?
Alex Mavroidakis. He is one of the two Executive Producers of Big Brother Australia, and is know to check out these forums every now and then. (nobody blames the other guy for some reason...?)

Q3: What about that “goon” fellow everyone seems to love?
[MENTION=99]Goon[/MENTION] is our BB insider, we don’t know much about him, but he’s been here almost as long as BB himself, and loves to give us insider knowledge.

Q4: Is that Kingston guy for real? He seems like such a dick.
HEY! He’s ours! We might bag him out, but we all love him deep (deep, deep) down.
It wouldn’t be BBB without him. Be nice and you’ll be fine.

Q5: (insert technical question about BBB forums here)?
If you're experiencing any Bugs or problems on the forum, head over to the Notices, Feedback and Questions board and report the issue there, the Mods, Admins and community are always happy to help!

I am just wondering.. Is impersonating a moderator against the rules? Because Goon just PM'd me impersonating a moderator and tried to intimidate me with his "warning" containing terrible spelling and grammar.

Goon IS a moderator.

a kit kat is a biscuit
Live feed could have been set up through a Foxtel channel. It would have been paid for as an extra channel making money, to the production team, live feed 24/7 with cuts perhaps so you can watch the specials evictions etc on the free to air. With parental lock on Foxtel it would be up to adults to make sure kids couldn't watch it. Parents parenting I know a novel idea radical even.
In the days of modern technology and access to pay tv it would have been a gold mine to the production team. Advertising could be limited which I guess is a negative I guess but ads could be linked they have been naming products through the show anyway and I figure there is a payment for that. When the boys were getting a massage the name Abipure was clearly said and used by HMs

There is a precedence on live streaming show on Foxtel this when rock band Reguriitator had a live channel beamed from the CBD of Melbourne when they recorded their album. So it isn't impossible to pull this off

THANKYOU tw2g for going to so much trouble putting up a list of the Nominations and Points. It's as if you read my mind. I missed the last 20 minutes of Monday night's Show. A neighbour's smoke alarm wouldn't stop screeching, so I couldn't relax until I found the house. I've been here every year since Bridget was in the Show about 5 years ago, and I've been reading all the Posts but this is the first year I joined. I was always a bit put off when people are posting "I hate the show this year." Then I think to myself, "Well why are they watching, and even more strange "Why are they taking the time to post to a forum to a TV Show they hate lol. I never understood that. I love the Show every year, and I know a lot of other people who enjoy watching, but don't like to admit it, so it's such a shame that it's seen as almost normal to mouth off about hating the show or how this year is so boring etc. It's not boring. I can't wait for them to bring Matt and Ed's twins in on the action. I loved what they did with the Logan's. One Housemate the Logan's year commented how Logan 1 looked a bit different for some reason ha ha ha. I'm not ashamed to say I race home especially on Monday nights to watch. I wish it was still on Sunday nights. And I miss being able to watch Big Brother Uplate with all the fun naughty bits. Anyway Thanks for putting up the Nomination Chart.

I don't know if this question has been asked yet or not, but what do they do about the Federal Election voting? It was called after they went in so they wouldn't of been able to do an Absentee vote. If they don't vote they get fined.

firstly, i know how you feel, my girlfriend hates bb :\ hahaha

http://catchup.ninemsn.com.au/bigbrother
is probably best, it avoids the official site so no spoilers, but from my experience they're pretty unreliable on what time they go up, i could access yesterdays ep around 10:30 last night, but other nights they havnt been up before 1am.

otherwise, there is a youtube member uploading all the episodes

i think i read on here takes them about 8 hours?

The YouTube ep is usually up about 2 hours after it airs on channel 9. They're really fast, it's great
