Storyline

Twelve contestants, who have never met are challenged to stay in a house, cut off from any contact with the outside world for 85 days. There is a cash prize of $250,000 for the winner. The contestants are free to leave at any time, but if they do, they walk away empty-handed. Once a week the contestants nominate three members of the group for eviction, with viewers making the final decision, by way of a phone-in, of who will leave the house. Conditions inside the house are basic, but occupants earn money to supplement their rations if they all successfully complete weekly assignments, designed to test their team spirit. Over the weeks the numbers will be whittled away until eventually, one contestant will emerge victorious. In the meantime, the residents of the BIG BROTHER house have no idea of what the public thinks of them or what impact they are having on the world. Written by Anonymous

This is awful
21 October 2012 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I have only seen one or two episodes of this utter garbage, but I feel based on that it is more than enough to review.

Basically the premise is take a bunch of awful people and retards, place them in some house for three months and whoever comes out on top receives $250,000. No no no, no work or anything that would make people think "money well earned" it's just sitting around trying to boost ratings, all for the money.

I will also say something right now, canceling this was the best move the 9 Network ever did. Nothing entertaining comes to ground, nothing that is in any way engaging (but that's just me). Just people sitting around talking and going through activities that make no sense.

I have heard people ask what a meter is on this show. If they can't work that one out then this crap deserves to be canceled where it belongs.
