Encyclopedia > Big Brother (TV series)

Big Brother is a reality television show. In each series, which lasts for around three months, a number of people (normally fewer than sixteen at any one time) live together full-time in the "Big Brother House", isolated from the outside world but under the continuous gaze of television cameras. The Housemates try to win a cash prize (£100,000) by avoiding periodic, usually publicly-voted, evictions from the house. The idea for "Big Brother" came during a brainstorm session at the production house of John de Mol Produkties (an independent part of Endemol) on Thursday,September 4, 1997. The first Big Brother broadcast was in the Netherlands in 1999 on the Veronica TV channel. It has been a prime-time hit in almost 70 different countries. The show's name comes from George Orwell's 1949 novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, in which Big Brother is the all-seeing, all-controlling leader of the dystopian Oceania. // This article is about the genre of TV shows. ...

Format

Though each country has made its own adaptations and changes to the format, the general concept has stayed the same: "housemates" are confined to a specially designed house where their every action is recorded by cameras and microphones at all times, and the housemates are not permitted any contact with the outside world. In most versions, at regular intervals, normally once weekly (although in most early series it was every two weeks), the public is invited to vote to have one of a number of nominated housemates evicted from the House. In some cases, two housemates may be evicted simultaneously (a "double eviction"), or rarely, no housemates will be removed for that week. At the end of the game, the last remaining housemate is declared winner of that particular series, and receives prizes; often including a large amount of money, a car, a holiday, and in some editions, a house. From a sociological perspective, this format can be analyzed to see how people react when brought into contact to and forced into close confinement with people who lie outside their "comfort zone", since they may hold different opinions from other contestants, express different ideals, or simply be from a different group of people that a contestant is used to. The format is ideally suited because the viewer sees how a person reacts on the outside through the constant recording of their actions, and also what they feel on the inside through the Diary Room. The results can often result in violent or angry confrontations, providing entertainment to the public.


Besides living together under continuous observation, which is the major attraction of the contest, the program relies on four basic props: the stripped-bare back-to-basics environment in which they live, the evictions, the weekly tasks set by Big Brother, and the "Diary Room", in which the housemates individually convey their thoughts, feelings, frustrations and their eviction nominees.


In the first of most Big Brother seasons, the House that the housemates had to live in for the duration of the competition was very basic. Although essential amenities such as running water, furniture and a limited ration of food were provided, luxury items were often forbidden. This added an element of survival into the show, thus increasing the potential for tensions within the house. Now almost every country has a modern house for the contest, with a jacuzzi, a sauna, a VIP suite, a loft, and other luxuries.


The housemates are required to do any housework as they see fit, and are set tasks by the producers of the show, who communicate with the housemates via the omnipresent authority figure known only to them as "Big Brother". The tasks set are designed to test their team-working abilities and community spirit, and in some countries the housemates' shopping budget or weekly allowance often depends on the outcome of any set tasks. The housemates have a weekly allowance with which they can buy food and other essentials.


At regular intervals, the housemates each privately nominate a number of fellow housemates that they wish to see evicted from the house. The housemates with the most nomination points are then announced, and viewers are given the opportunity to vote for whom they wish to see evicted. After the votes are tallied, the "evictee" leaves the house and is interviewed live by the host of the show, usually in front of a live studio audience.


The series is notable for involving the Internet. Although the show typically broadcasts daily updates in the evening, sometimes criticized for its heavy editing, viewers can also watch a continuous, 24-hour feed from multiple cameras on the web. These websites were highly successful, even after some national series started charging for access to the video stream. In some countries, the Internet broadcasting was supplemented by updates via email, WAP and SMS. The House is even shown live on satellite television, although in some countries (such as the UK) with a 10-15 minute delay, to allow libelous or unacceptable content — such as references to people who are not taking part in the program and have therefore not consented to have personal information about them broadcast — to be removed. WAP is an open international standard for applications that use wireless communication. ... Text messaging on a mobile with keyboard Text messaging, or texting is the common term for the sending of short (160 characters or fewer, including spaces) text messages from mobile phones using the Short Message Service (SMS). ... Satellite television is television delivered by way of communications satellites, as compared to conventional terrestrial television and cable television. ...


Despite derision from many intellectuals and other critics, the show has been a commercial success around the world. More generally, the voyeuristic nature of the show, where contestants volunteer to surrender their privacy in return for minor celebrity status and a comparatively small cash prize, has attracted much scorn.[1] On numerous occasions, participants in the various series have become sexually involved with each other, sometimes engaging in intercourse in front of Big Brother's cameras. This recordered material typically not broadcast due to its explicit nature, as with the case of the British and American editions. Other editions, however, such as the German version, do. The Internet stream also captures such moments. This had led to some controversy with some jurisdictions such as Greece attempting to have the show removed from the airwaves.[1] The word intercourse refers to: Look up intercourse in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Most international versions of the show remain quite similar to each other in that their main format remains true to the original fly on the wall, observational style, with the emphasis being on human relationships. This is carried out to the extent of where contestants are forbidden from discussing nominations or voting strategy altogether. The U.S. version, however, has, since 2001, taken on a significantly different format from the others in their second season, with a far stronger emphasis on strategy, competition and voting. Fly on the wall is a style of documentary-making used in film and television. ...

Isolation of housemates

The housemates are, for the most part, isolated within the house. They are allowed no access to television, radio or the Internet, and are not allowed any form of communications with the outside world, or other media. In some shows, even books and writing material are not permitted, with the exception of religious materials such as the Bible or Qur'an. For other uses, see Bible (disambiguation). ... The Qur’ān [1] (Arabic: , literally the recitation; also sometimes transliterated as Quran, Koran, or Al-Quran) is the central religious text of Islam. ...


Contestants are not completely isolated. They have regular scheduled interactions with the show's host, and throughout each day the program's producer, via the "Big Brother" voice, instructs the contestants in various matters, and sometimes issues tasks and commands them to take certain actions. Private chats with a psychologist are allowed at any time, often by means of a telephone in the Diary Room.


Variations in the format

Location of different versions of Big Brother
Location of different versions of Big Brother
  • In the third UK series, Big Brother set live tasks for the housemate on a Saturday night in order to win treats. This format was discontinued in the fifth series due to poor ratings. This format has been used in Australia in the form of Friday Night Live.
  • The fifth UK edition introduced the "Evil" touch, whereby the character of Big Brother became almost a villain. Big Brother was establishing punishments and was proposing hard tasks and secret tricks. This was also seen in Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Finland, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Pacific, Scandinavia, Serbia, Spain, Thailand, Philippines, and Mexico.
  • The sixth UK series introduced secret missions where housemate would be able to win luxuries if they completed a secret task set by Big Brother.
  • In the seventh UK series, Big Brother became "twisted". Every week, housemates mental states were put to the test as Big Brother tried to break them. As a result of this many housemates broke down.
  • The eighth UK Series saw an all-female house however 3 days later 1 male housemate entered
  • The UK series always opens with a twist which have included First Night Nominations (BB4), Transexual entrances and Suit Case Nominations (BB5), Unlucky Housemate 13 (BB6), Big Brother Hood and a person suffering From Tourette's (BB7), an all-female House and twins' entrance (BB8), Jackie Stallone rumored to be entering(CBB3), entrance of a non-celebrity in a celebrity edition (CBB4) Jade Goody's family announced to be visiting. (CBB5) and most recently, a couple enter the Big Brother House, only to be split up before they could reveal their status (BB9). Many countries have followed these opening night twists such as Australia and the United States.
  • The fifth UK edition introduced "Fake evictions" where one or two housemates are "evicted"; however, unbeknownst to the housemates, they have in fact not been evicted. The housemate/s usually are put into a secret house where numerous twists happen. In the eighth UK Series one housemate was evicted, interviewed, and then sent straight back into the house. The housemates in the house got to see everything live, though.
  • In France and Canada, the format has been developed using couples. Twelve single people stay in the same house until only the winning couple are left.
  • Big Brother USA currently uses a different set of rules that began with the second season (the first season used the traditional format). Nominations are done by one houseguest, the Head of Household (HoH) and the houseguests vote for which nominee to evict, not the viewers. The third season introduced the Power of Veto, where a houseguest can save a nominee causing the Head of Household to name a replacement nominee. It's been adapted in Brazil and Africa and since then some countries modified their nominations rules.
  • The eighth American season, introduced "America's Player", a houseguest that is given assignments, unknown to the other houseguests, through votes from the viewing public. Included in the public voting is which nominated houseguest America's Player should vote off and campaign to get evicted. This was also seen in the second Teen Edition of the Philippine version as the "House Player."
  • The third Dutch edition introduced the notion of "The Battle", in which the house is separated into a luxurious half and a poor half, with two teams of housemates constantly fighting for time in the luxurious half. Separated houses have also been used in Australia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Italy, Norway, Poland, Scandinavia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and the UK. Australia, Italy, Philippines and Mexico added punishment zones to their houses.
  • In 2004, the fifth German edition was the first version to run for 365 days consecutively. In this season, the contestants were separated into three teams (rich, regular, survivor) and equivalent living areas. The ultimate winner got a prize of 1,000,000 €.
  • Also in Germany a new version of the show started: Big Brother - Das Dorf (Big Brother - The Village). It was the sixth season and started the same day season 5 ended. This was the first version supposed to run for years (without a predetermined end). It was set in a small artificial village including a church tower, a marketplace, 3 houses, 3 working areas (farm, car garage, dressmaking and later a small hotel, where celebrities from the real world could move into), a matcharena, a pub and a fitness room. The season ended after 363 days in February 2006 because of low ratings. In season seven RTL II switched back to a traditional version.
  • The Voice Graph system in BB Argentina, BB Australia & BB Germany.
  • The fourth Greek season introduced a new element: the mother. In Big Mother nine housemates take part in the game with their mothers, with whom they must coexist during the contest. The "mamas" were not able to win the prize but they would stay with their children until their eviction. However, this proved to be a failure with the show's audience and the show switched back to the traditional Big Brother format in mid-season. This concept, in modified form, was used in the second Philippine teen edition, but in this case, the housemates' guardians were not necessarily mothers and stayed for a limited amount of time. These guardians also had their own prizes.
  • The eight season of Big Brother Australia introduced 'snap evictions', in which Big Brother can call on the housemates at any time to provide him with an evictee. Also introduced in this series was the 'housemate hand-grenade', a form of revenge in which the evicted housemate can cause some form of punishment for a surviving housemate, such as having all of their clothes removed from the house, or even banning them from leaving the backyard.
  • Introduced in the fifth season of the American series, several countries have included twins, and in some cases triplets, in their shows. Series that have used Housemates who are twins or triplets are:
    • USA, 2004, Adria Montgomery-Klein and Natalie Montgomery-Carroll, 7th (Adria) and 8th (Natalie) Evicted, Used Name: "Adria".
    • Australia, 2005, David and Greg Matthew, 14th Evicted (David) and Winner (Greg, although the prize money was split), Used Name: "Logan" (Middle name of both Twins).
    • Bulgaria, 2006, Lyubov, Nadejda, and Vyara Stancheva, 7th (Nadejda) and 9th (Vyara) Evicted, Winner (Lyubov), Used Name: "Vyara".
    • UK, 2007, Amanda and Sam Marchant, 2nd Place (Both were treated separately until Day 68 when they became one), Used Name: "Samanda".
    • France, 2007, Marjorie, Cyrielle and Johanna Bluteau, Winners (They competed as a team).
    • Spain, 2007, Conchi and Pamela De Los Santos, 2nd Place, Used Name: "Rosa".
    • Poland, 2007, Aneta and Martyna Bielecka, 4th Evicted (They were discovered as twins), Used Name: "Martyna".

Special editions of Big Brother

Big Brother VIP / Celebrity Big Brother

The Big Brother format has been adapted in some countries in that the housemates are locally known celebrities. These shows are called Celebrity Big Brother or Big Brother VIP, depending on where the series is. In some countries, the prize money normally awarded to the winning housemate is donated to a charity, and all celebrities are paid to appear in the show as long as they do not voluntarily leave before their eviction or the end of the series. The rest of the format rules are almost the same as the ones from the original version, although in many occasions they are not so strict due to the exceptional character of the program. The series has been a prime-time hit in many countries and was aired for the first time in 2000, in the Netherlands. Big Brother is a reality show shown on Channel 4 in which a number of contestants live in an isolated house trying to avoid being evicted by the public with the aim of winning a large cash prize at the end of the run. ...

  • A second variant appeared in the Netherlands in 2006: Hotel Big Brother. A group of celebrity hoteliers and a Big Boss run a hotel, collecting money for charity without nominations, evictions or winner.
  • A third variant appeared in the UK in early 2008: Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack, replacing the 2008 edition of Celebrity Big Brother. Instead of the celebrities playing the role of housemates, the celebrities in fact become Big Brother himself. The celebrities create tasks, hold nominations, etc. with the help of Big Brother. The housemates of the show are considered by the producers "Britain's most exceptional and extraordinary" 18-21 year olds. The prize for the winner of the series was £50,000.[2]

Online Versions

Shortly following the initial debut of Big Brother and other major reality shows such as Survivor and The Amazing Race, a multitude of online reality games based on Big Brother surfaced on the web in which fans of the show competed against each other. One person would "host" the game, coming up with challenges, twists, etc., and the players cast for the show would communicate via AIM or some other messaging service and would compete in Veto and Head of Household challenges to earn power, much like on the real show. Player(s) would also be evicted each week just like on the show, until there was just a final 2 players remaining. Then a jury of those players voted off immediately before the Final 2 would vote on the winner of the game to whom the title of Big Brother champion would be awarded. These games were extremely popular in the early days of Big Brother, and though their popularity slowly declined over the years, they are still widely played today along with online reality games based on other reality shows.
