Kenya has got 2 housemates in this year all male Big Brother Africa 4. The announcements were announced at a packed function at the Stanley Sarova hotel on Sunday night.
As with all Big Brother series, Big Brother Africa: The Revolution will include surprises and unexpected innovations.
However there are several main differences in the series. In addition to a completely redesigned eye logo and new host Ikponmwosa “I.K.” Osakioduwa, the house has revolutionized to an all male full house. This was quit shocking for the crowd at the launch, that I could hear some people saying that Big Brother is going Gay. Also too bad for the ‘shower hour’ fun for this time round, there will be no more ‘shower hours’.
Further, the search for housemates has been expanded from 12 countries to now include 14 countries. This follows the inclusion of Ethiopia and Mozambique in the search.
Even the voting in the new season is set to undergo a complete transformation. This year, audiences will be asked to vote for the housemates they want to see remain in the series rather than the housemates they want to see leave the series. So it’s all about being positive and keeping the great players in the game.
Just after the end of the live televised launch of the series from South African, Wangeci Murage, MNET’s production manager, argued Kenyans to vote for the Kenya house mate because this has been the major reason why they never win in such reality TV series “I wouldn’t lair, Kenyans are HATER and for this reason we will never go anywhere in terms of reality TV, so pleas vote and bring the US$200.000 to Kenya this year.
