TV Tonight hears housemates may have entered the Big Brother house on North Head and filming is now underway for Seven.
The series is under the watch of producer Amelia Fisk (Australian Survivor, The Bachelorette), with Sonia Kruger hosting.
While the show is not Live to air Seven takes the view that post-produced Reality shows have still proven successful in recent years.
Despite some suggestions the show has been brought forward due to My Kitchen Rules ratings, Seven programmer Angus Ross confirmed the show would launch before the Olympics in an interview with TV Tonight in January (before MKR commenced).
“The scale of the Big Brother house that is being built will blow people away. It is a huge, exciting build on North Head in Sydney. It’s like the house at the edge of the world,” he said.
“It’ll start filming very shortly and it will be coming pre-Olympics.”
Angus Ross also confirmed viewers will still vote for a winner, although it isn’t clear if this will entail a Live finale or multiple endings filmed in advance.
