• Big Brother’s game just got bigger

After months of preparation, Big Brother will swing open the doors to his VIP hotel at 7.30pm, Monday 1 November, with the star-studded premiere of Big Brother VIP on Channel Seven and 7plus.

Big Brother’s game just got bigger with his invitation to 12 VIPs to take a vacation from their celebrity lives and check into an experience like no other. Never one to do things modestly, Big Brother has invited the VIPs to his first-ever luxury hotel, where they will receive rock star treatment with a Big Brother twist. 

Removed from the world they know, this elite group will be at the mercy of Big Brother’s game for 22 days. Their every move will be captured as they face house tasks, nomination challenges, and eviction ceremonies – all while they eat, sleep and share a bathroom together. 

Shock confessions and intimate conversations are on the menu as the VIPs vie to win $100,000 for their nominated charity. Who takes it home? Australia decides. 

Back in the house after 17 long years, Nova’s Fitzy is returning to the Big Brother house and he’s taking Wippa with him. Well, sort of. 

On Fitzy & Wippa, Fitzy says that they turned down being actual housemates, but instead they’ll be joining the Big Brother VIP cast for the second episode for in depth-interviews with each of the housemates.

“The second episode of big brother there are a couple of stars that get to chat with the housemates including one Ex Big Brother contestant,” said Wippa on air. “It was fascinating. we spent four hours interviewing the contestants.”
