Big Brother Africa fans may be excited to know that Channel Yedu, a local production company, is launching a local version of the show which will be called Big Sister.
The show will have the same rules as Big Brother Africa but some terms and conditions will be suited to meet the Zimbabwean market. Big Sister is expected to kick off in June and end mid-July with 30 housemates battling for a cash prize of about U.S.$25,000.
The show will be hosted in Glen-Lorne, Harare from June to mid-July and the preparations for the reality show are at an advanced stage.
It’s not yet clear if a woman will be watching over the house but I do think it will be a bit refreshing if it turns out that way. Travers informed the Herald that the show is called Big Sister because they wanted the feminine touch to be the main thread line in most episodes. We ain’t really sure what this means but we guess we’ll get to know once more information is disclosed. Traverse did hasten to say the show is not only for women.
Big Sister will air online but then ZBC will have access to highlights. There are no details on how to apply yet. There will be more information at the Big Sister launch party in May.
