Format and production thoughts

Might be.
At the very least might dissuade oily fame seeking folk from constantly auditioning knowing there might be a grave consequence.

What would be the best camera angle to shoot your idea in? Would you have like different shots for different frames?

Death can be confronting. Thats why I went with sepia and black and white.
Ratings and studies show this is more of a palatable approach.
Due to film noir and the like.

Well it could be a ratings winner too.

Plus they won't have to appear on sunrise.

A small mercy.
Russian roulete bullet vs appearing on sunrise.
Think most lucid folk would take the bolshevik bullet.
But lucid and reality tv aspirants are quantam worlds apart.

Hopefully we’ll get some more details on the upcoming series today at the Seven up fronts around midday. Won’t be much but looking forward to maybe seeing the new eye in action.

A 7news article about the 2020 upfronts said this:
"The master game player returns in 2021, welcoming a new group of Housemates who will live together for over two months, cut off from the outside world in a custom-built house fitted with cameras and microphones recording every inch of the house and their every move, 24 hours a day."

So does that mean at least they'll be in the house for 8 weeks + ?

Yes, we already knew this though. Shooting is scheduled to run through December.

Yeah, hoping that they space it out a bit this time. Would improve a lot watching housemates being housemates instead of constant game playing all episode in their tight rinse and repeat format of Challenge, Noms, Eviction every episode.
Did we watch the same program? Gameplay/Strategy was virtually non-existent in the last series. An improvement would be a consistent storyline that includes strategy/gameplay throughout rather than a few minutes prior to the eviction.

Yeah, Nah.
How does it work in the US/Canada in a live format? Are there multiple evictions in a week, or just the one like the good old days?

It’s a 3 episode cycle per eviction. The eviction the HoH usually take place in the same episode, Nominations and any other special power in next, followed by the POV and outcome. Basically the competitions and the results are the series tent poles and the gaps in between are filled with the overarching storyline or filler.

And how many eps a week?
