Good news! BIG BROTHER MZANSI returns for another season following the outstanding success of last year’s show which saw beloved spaza shop owner Mandla Hlatshwayo walk away with fame, fortune and romance!
Now the hunt is on for Mzansi Magic‘s 24/7 live reality TV series, BIG BROTHER MZANSI 2. Think you’ve got what it takes? If you are bold enough, brave enough, smart and savvy enough to take on the challenge, a spot may await you in Big Brother’s house.
“BIG BROTHER MZANSI allows us as a channel to tap our audience’s engagement –specifically in the social networking space. It’s a double-win for our viewers – great viewing today drives great viewing in the future. This show is an entertainment dream, packed with action, drama, romance and humour,” says Nkateko Mabaso, Director of Local Interest Channels at M-Net.
If you are a citizen/legal resident of South Africa and 21 years of age or older (as of 01 January 2015), then you can audition for the show. This yearauditions will take place simultaneously in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg on Saturday, 31 January and Sunday, 1 February 2015.
Auditions in Durban will be held at the BAT Centre (45 Maritime Place); in Cape Town at the Cape Town Lodge (101 Buitengracht Street) and in Johannesburg at The Pyramid Venue in Eloff Street. Registration starts at 08h00 and closes at 15h00 on both audition days. If you are registered by 15h00 you will be auditioned. Remember that auditions are on a first come/first serve basis and you must bring a valid South African ID document with you.
If you are wondering what the prize money is, the answer is that it won’t be less than R 1 million, and it could be as high as a mouth-watering R 2 million! That’s all Biggie is saying for now.
As always, there’s a twist…this year you can either audition as an individual, or with a partner.
So if you think you and your best friend will wow the Big Brother selection team, then make sure you are both at the auditions together. You can pair up with anyone…your brother, sister, cousin, boyfriend, girlfriend, neighbour, gym buddy, golf partner, work mate…anyone you want as long as they meet the entry requirements and want to participate.
