Applications For Big Brother Australia Are Now Officially Open

Applications For Big Brother Australia Are Now Officially Open

People were understandably shocked, confused and excited when it was announced earlier this week that Big Brother Australia was coming back to our TVs next year.

Despite having a long stint on Channel 10 and a much less interesting reboot on Channel 9, it appears Channel 7 reckons it has the right stuff to make a third version of the show work.

Naturally, everyone wanted to know how and when they could apply so they would have a shot of getting on TV to embarrass themselves on a national scale and hopefully score that Instagram blue tick that they've been desperately hunting for.

Well, we're happy to announce that applications are now open.

Endemol Shine's digital casting platform has gone live and you're free to chuck your name into the ring.

In the application, you're asked about a bunch of random things as a way to separate you from the pack.

You're asked things like 'If you could invite three people (dead or alive) to dinner who would they be and why?', 'If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life what would it be and why?' and 'If there was a movie produced about your life, who would play you and why?'

They also want to get a feel about you as a person and therefore ask about your relationship status, how they'd feel about you being in a house with loads of distractions, and what your connection is like with your family members and friends.

Then it gets deep into you.

'What do you do when someone shouts at you?' is one of the questions, followed by 'What do you do when some ignores you?'. Clearly they want people who will make good television.

Interestingly, when the OG host of the show, Gretel Killeen, was asked about the reboot, she gave a mixed response.

She told the Kyle and Jackie O Show: "I think the essence of Big Brother is brilliant because when we first started that show it was about just watching humans interact without interference, just seeing what humans do.

"It wasn't 'Who's going to win?' It was: Let's just see what relationships form and how people pass their time and converse."

"I think watching ourselves is something we could actually learn from now. I think this is a time of analysis and introspection and redefining our values, so I think it would be a hoot.

"Reality TV can attract a different kind of person now who wants to be famous, so perhaps that level of purity, maybe the time has passed. But maybe that's a matter of casting."

So, if you're keen to get on the show then fill your application and wait for that phone call.
