Season 3

Once again 12 housemates from 12 African countries have been plucked from their homes and their lives to live together cut off from the outside world - which will be watching their every move.

As always the master of the house, Big Brother, expects his “guests” to have no form of contact with the world outside, strictly no violence and an obligation to nominate fellow housemates for eviction.

This season the three housemates who stay longest in the house will spend precisely 91 days. Once nominations begin the Big Brother Africa housemates will have to nominate two fellow housemates to be evicted.

The viewers will then vote for the housemate they want to evict until only one remains and emerges the winner of the $100,000 grand prize.

However, Big Brother reserves the right to change the rules at any time, introducing twists to make the show even more intriguing.

Tasks

Each week the Housemates will undertake various tasks that will stretch them to the limits in order to win a week's worth of budget that will enable them to buy groceries and other essential necessities.

Only Big Brother has the authority to assign the weekly tasks which mostly involve team play and perseverance. If the housemates display tremendous endurance, focus and willingness to succeed, Big Brother can wager up to 100% of their budget.

Rules

In Big Brother’s house, the rules remain as long as Big Brother says so. He can change them at any time, so housemates and viewers alike should brace themselves for a unique viewing experience with plenty of twists and turns.

Field Presenters

To spice things up Big Brother deployed 12 field presenters to give feedback about each housemate’s hype and to get a grip on home ground. The presenters are expected to interview the housemate’s parents, friends and compile reports from eviction parties.

Head of House

Each week housemates compete against one another for the prestigious title of the Head of Household (HoH). The house leader’s benefits include seven days' immunity from eviction plus a luxurious night at the Glass House.

Schedule

Big Brother Africa 3 airs on DStv channel 198 and AfricaMagic Plus from Sunday 24 August to Sunday 23 November, 2008.

Each week, there are four 30-minute daily shows (Tuesday to Friday) and a 30-minute “Uncut” show every Friday.

On Monday 8 September 2008 the housemates made their first nomination for eviction.

Big Brother Africa 3 premiered on DStv's Channel 198 and AfricaMagic Plus (Ch 115) on Sunday 24 August 2008, at 19h00 CAT. The live feed is on Channel 198, with daily highlights shows on AfricaMagic Plus.

The show was won by Angolan contestant Ricco Venancio, who beat Malawi's Hazel Warren by .2% of the votes.

Zimbabwe's Munya Chidzonga joined them in the final free and was eliminated before the final two showdown.
