Sonia Kruger to host Big Brother for Seven

Seven has confirmed Sonia Kruger as its Big Brother host for 2020.

“In 2020, the world’s greatest reality show returns to shake things up. But if you think you know Big Brother, think again. This time, everything has changed,” Seven revealed.

“The thrilling new era of Big Brother begins with a dynamic new house full of incredible surprises, new rules designed to create show-stopping twists and a new generation of unique and ambitious housemates determined to outstay each other no matter what Big Brother throws at them.

Kruger previously fronted the show from 2012 to 2014 on Nine. But the announcement means she is no longer hosting Mega Mini Golf.

A Channel Seven spokesperson said: “Big Brother has spoken and Sonia Kruger will helm the new game. Channel Seven is very excited to have Sonia on board for a thrilling new era of Big Brother. Sonia’s Big Brother filming commitments mean she’s no longer able to host Mega Mini Golf. Seven will soon reveal the all-star cast who’ll be teeing off on the epic new competition series.”

Kruger said, “I knew 2020 was going to be a fantastic year but to be asked to host the big daddy of reality shows is icing on the cake. I’ve always loved Big Brother and this brand new series of the show will take it to an exciting, contemporary level that will make for addictive viewing. The housemates have been selected, the new home is mind blowing and Big Brother is as mischievous as ever. The game has changed and I can’t wait to give fans their all access pass to the greatest reality show on earth!”


  1. Prerecorded kills the whole idea of what BB was imo. The surprise element is gone. If it comes down to Dancing Vs Big Brother then DWTS will win. I am so looking forward to it this year!

  2. Well, that’s a Big Disappointment. I was holding out hope they’d get Gretel back. Foolish to not listen to the fans, who’ve been very vocal about what they want, on every level.
