Season 4 - Double Trouble

Channel Premiere Finale TX Time Episodes
Mzansi Magic 22 Mar 2015 17 May 2015 Daily 56


Season 4

Season 4 was subtitled "Double Trouble" and in keeping with the name there was a double launch for the series this year, spread over two launch nights, and unknown to them, the Housemates entered the house on both nights.

Each launch show ran for one hour, with the first at 20h00 on Sunday, 22 March and the second at 19h30 on Monday, 23 March. Both launch shows were screened live on Mzansi Magic.

This year Biggie asked wannabe Housemates to enter either as pairs or individuals and had a state of the art house, as with previous seasons, where Housemates spent the 56-day duration of the season.

The revamped Big Brother house was screened live 24/7 on DStv channels 197/198 and was covered by 44 cameras - 18 less than in 2014. Spacious, airy and accommodating, the house featured a large garden, bathroom, diary room, store room, indoor arena, three bedrooms, lounge area and a fully functional kitchen.

The look of the house was a fusion of clean contemporary lines in the furniture with modern bright wallpapers, showcasing a bold, retro, playful and youthful interior in keeping with the open plan, flowing architecture of the space.

The fourth season was won by longtime sweethearts Ace Khumalo and Ntombi Tshabalala.

Broadcast Times

Big Brother Mzansi was available live 24/7 to DStv Premium, Extra and Compact subscribers on Channels 197 and 198, though all the live Sunday shows (including the launch and the finale) are screened exclusively on Mzansi Magic.

Also on Mzansi Magic - the weekly nomination show every Monday (21h30), the daily highlights shows from Tuesdays to Fridays (21h30) and a round-up of the week's highlights every Saturday (17h00).

A live stream was also available on the official website.
