Big Brother Africa House BURNT! Launch of Big Brother Hotshots Postponed



Big Brother Hotshots

Very sad new for Big Brother Africa fans.
M-Net and Endemol SA advise that due to a devastating fire at the Big Brother house on 2 September 2014, Big Brother Hotshots will not launch this Sunday (7 September) as schedule. The cause of the fire at this stage is unknown and investigations will commence as soon as it is safe to do so.

At this stage M-Net and Endemol are urgently looking for an alternative Big Brother house in which to film the production, however as this production has highly technical infrastructure, camera and edit requirements an alternative is not immediately available. Every effort will be made to find a solution as quickly as possible to ensure that Africa’s biggest reality show will continue.

The Big Brother Africa house is based at the Sesani Studios in Johannesburg. Thankfully noone was injured.

    I think they intentionally burnt it down to avoid haven participants from West Africa cause of Ebola.

      But they could have had the housemates tested, instead of burning the house

      That’s not logical @hB, atleast if there is any doubt, all they need do is have all west African contestants tested, but @d same time u may be right.

      Hmmmmm#smh why would u think that way? Participants from WA must have been screened. I am in SA just arrived on last saturday and at the airport i was screened and all that. So what are u not saying? Please be positive. It has nothing to do with ebola(My thought)so watch what u say. It means alot.

    ebola ebola ebola ‘s gossipers will you stop fluging the issue at the bombom. its none of Biggies problem ok. atleast your could read what Bellaniaja wrote in the comment above (The cause of the fire at this stage is unknown and investigations will commence as soon as it is safe to do so) so get to know the outcome of the first before you say your creepy word. dont be judgemental. Biggi sorry about the fire occurence in you basement. you shall get to the root of the matter and its a sign of you getting Bigger. waiting for yaa!

    It has nothing to do with Ebola. Hope errrr. . .im not sure ‘burning down of a house”really qualifies as a ‘tactic”
