Given plenty of Aussie TV shows have been forced to halt production due to the current coronavirus pandemic, viewers will likely rejoice at the news that one reality show isn’t far from making it’s long-awaited TV comeback.
The newly revamped Big Brother Revolution is set to hit Aussie screens again in June, with a new teaser promo shared by Channel Seven this morning, giving fans a first glimpse inside the new Big Brother house.
Six years after it wrapped up Down Under, Big Brother will be returning to our screens with a whole new look and feel.
After moving from Network 10 to Seven the new Big Brother will not only have strangers living together in a house, but previous clips from international versions of the franchise showed contestants sweating it out in physical challenges and voting against each other in a Survivor-like ‘tribal council’ like setting.
In previous seasons viewers have voted contestants out by texting in. The show was also live.
The sneak peek showed us a glimpse of what some of the challenges might be. Including an obstacle course giving us all sorts of Ninja Warrior vibes.
The house is also looking freshly styled with plenty of space to chill, including a huge dining table, multiple lounge areas, and an outdoor section complete with pool.
Ex Today star Sonia Kruger was announced as the new host of the rebooted Big Brother in February and also made an appearance at the end of the promo.
The 54-year-old, who shocked many when she left former network Channel Nine after eight years - opened up to Kyle and Jackie O on KISS 106.5 the morning after news of her big role broke, revealing she was surprised when the opportunity came up.
“They said to me you know, we want you to host Big Brother and you could have knocked me over with a feather because I know that there were a lot of people in the mix,” Sonia said.
“I know everyone was kind of speculating about it but it actually wasn’t part of why I was going to Seven.”
Big Brother 2020 will premiere in June on Channel 7.
