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

Trivia

In seasons 4-6, the maximum prize money offered was one million dollars. Australia is the only country to offer such a prize on Big Brother. Housemate "Trevor" in season 4 is the only person to win one million dollars, as housemate fines were deducted from the prize in seasons 5 and 6. See more »

4th Times a Charm
20 July 2004 | by (Queensland, Australia) – See all my reviews

I never watched Big Brother 1. I wanted to but it seemed boring, I had other shows and I couldn't be bothered. Now, 2004, I finally decided to start watching the 4th Season of Big Brother. And i loved it.

The housemates were funnier, more brighter. In the snippet I saw of the other 3 BB's the housemates were dull, boring with no excitement.

The Round up of the housemates is.

Igor - Evicted in the first week, he was full of stories and full of himself.

Aphrodite - Bubbly in an annoying way, a bit self absorbed.

Trevor - An all round nice guy, who is tipped to win.

Ashalee - A bubbly, sometimes ditzy brunette who is lovable and sweet.

Paul - A surfer-mad dreadlocked 31 year old who loves stirring things up. Catherine - The mother hen, who is a single mother to her 2 kids.

Terri - Total stuck up tart.

Krystal - Nice.

Ryan - Fryzie Rootman or Ryan whatever you call him, Ryan is crazy and loves to pull pranks but is generally good hearted.

Merlin - The sweetest guy, he was a refugee. Made his mark by refusing to speak when evicted and wearing a "Free the Refugees" sign.

Elle - Missed parts when she was in house.

Wesley - One of the Blondies, Wesley is quiet but sensible. Kane - Crazy.

Monica (Intruder)- A nice girl, who Ryan fell head over heels for.

Violeta (intruder)- Evicted almost immediately. A bit stuck up.

Bree- Evicted wrongly, then returned to the house. Bree is sarcastic, strong and opinionated.
