Another chance to enter Big Brother
Windhoek – With the February 27 barely a week away for entrants to submit their entries for Big Brother Africa six, M-Net has made an exciting announcement for all those who had left it too late. M-Net said this week it will also run open auditions in the different countries – so that those who didn’t submit a paper entry still get one last chance to try out for the new season. “We’re extremely pleased with the response that this year’s call to entry has had,” says M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi. “Going into a sixth season, we knew that there would be interest but the scale of this interest has been quite phenomenal with over 5000 entries already received, certainly among the highest number of entries for any edition of Big Brother Africa.” She said: “However, we’re aware that there are always people who leave it too late to enter and then arrive at the audition venues, where our teams are holding phase two audition sessions, to plead for a chance to try out. So this year, in addition to paper entries, we’ll also have open audition days. This way, if you submitted a paper entry, your entry has already been evaluated and successful candidates will be called and seen first at audition venues. But those people who didn’t do a paper entry will have one last chance to enter when our selection team is in the participating countries. They simply need to arrive at the audition venue on the relevant days.” “But I would strongly suggest that people opt to submit a written entry. There’s still some time to do this! Your entry definitely gets priority with our selection teams who read through it in detail and are able to spend time working through the information. ” To submit a written entry for the show, log on to www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother and complete your entry form online. Or download an entry form from the website, complete and email it back to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for all written entries to be submitted is 27 February 2011 – so don’t delay. Entry is open to would-be housemates who are 21-years or older, English speaking, have a valid passport and is a citizen of any one of the 14 participating countries (Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe). Remember that all entrants must be tolerant of views and lifestyle choices other than their own and must have the social flexibility to live in close proximity with others. Big Brother Africa six begins on Sunday May 1 this year and once more, the dedicated DStv channel 198 will be providing 24/7 live coverage for the 91 day duration of the series.
