One of the participants who simply called herself Catherine said she flew in from the United States where she is a student just to take part in the audition. “I don’t care about the distance. Apart from the money, I considered Big Brother a big platform for me to launch my showbiz career,”
She added that she is very optimistic of being chosen by the selection team. “I believe I got all it takes to be in the house and entertain Africa,” she said.
On 26 May, new housemates representing each of these countries, will be announced at a glittering opening ceremony in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The winner of this year will take home $300,000 after spending 91 days in the Big Brother House.
Late singer Goldie, Chris and Ola made it to the Big Brother house last year as Nigeria representatives to the Stargame version of the show which was won by South African Keagan Pietersen who halted Nigeria reigns of the reality show. Kevin Pam, Uti Nwachukwu and Karen Igho won the 2009, 2010 and 2011 editions of the shows respectively.
