I think the problem is that sevens format where its just basically game talk and challenges need something like live feeds so we can get to know the housemates more. Especially for when we are voting at the end. A ninety second clip on their awful site will not do.
This is why I said last year they need a companion show, either later at night or on one of the multichannels, dedicated to non-competition HM interactions and character development. Let viewers get to know them better.

Definitely. I know this conversation is probably better suited in the Format thread, but I feel one of the most detrimental aspects of Seven’s version is that they don’t treat it like anything other than an ordinary challenge-based reality show that’s already on TV several times a week nowadays.

The fact it’s entirely pre-recorded so far in advance is one the show’s biggest flaws - the production runs at a low-cost, and as such is evidently filmed with that in mind from the get-go; for starters, we know the house does not get filmed 24/7 (at least it didn’t last season). Regardless of the new format - which for the most part I approve of - some of the most fundamental elements that comprise a show like Big Brother are still missing from the new Australian version.

It also makes me wonder why Endemol don’t provide a stricter set of guidelines about what must and mustn’t be included when signing off on new seasons of the program. But I suppose a quick buck speaks louder when the intention is probably just to keep the brand relevant, rather than actually putting in time and care to re-produce what sets it apart from other shows in the first place.

I thought Endemol pitched this format to Seven?
