Season 1

Big Brother Africa is a South African reality television competition based on the international format Big Brother and produced by Endemol South Africa, in which 12 (14 since Season 4) contestants - each from different African countries - live together under 24-hour camera surveillance for 91 days, and are voted out weekly by viewers until one person is crowned the winner and receives a substantial cash prize.

The participating African countries are: Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

It's a slacker's dream - getting off work for up to three and a half months, lounging in the jacuzzi for hours on end, achieving fifteen minutes of notoriety, and the possibility of winning a huge amount of money.

This is Big Brother Africa.

Twelve people from 12 African countries enter the Big Brother Africa household and live there with television cameras watching their every move 24/7. The only contact they have with the outside world is the disembodied voice of Big Brother, who controls what they are allowed to do.

Every couple of weeks some people are nominated for eviction. It is then up to the audience to vote for who they want to see gone. Popularity and entertainment are key or else the viewers will eat you alive.

The one who manages to avoid eviction until the end and garners the most audience support wins a big cash prize.

The first season was won by Cherise Makubale from Zambia.
