According to entertainment commentator Phil Mphela, contestants will be competing for a whopping 2 million this coming season. One lucky winner will receive the prize money after all contestants have been eliminated. The highly anticipated third season of Big Brother will be televised across Africa.


Big Brother Mzansi is a South African version of the Big Brother franchise. The last season of the show saw Nkanyiso Ace Khumalo and Ntombifuthi Tshabalala walking away with cash worth R2 million. In a statement shared by Multichoice recently, they said the show promises to be as exciting and active as ever.

“Just in time to heat up summer!! MultiChoice Group and Banijay are pleased to announce that the much-loved Big Brother Mzansi will be making its highly anticipated return to your screens soon, and it promises to be as exciting, entertaining, and action-packed as ever. Big Brother Mzansi is one of 69 adaptations of the Big Brother format worldwide and this year marks 20 years since the first-ever Big Brother South Africa.”

Tweeps have made it clear that they don’t want celebrities and influencers to be part of the contestants when the show returns. They want ordinary people who are authentic, and who want to establish a name for themselves in the industry.

@THIZOZO_MOKOENA commented: “We don’t want celebrities for big brother mzansi. We’ve seen them enough on TV and heard them enough on radio. Give the normal public a chance.”

@TshepoKgakane stated “Rules for Big Brother Mzansi. 1. No influencers 2. No celebrities 3. No taken/married individuals on the show 4. Ama2000 are welcome 5. SAVANNA must sponsor Saturday night parties 6. Katlego Maboe should host.”

In 2015 the show was rocked by sexual assault allegations. A contestant was expelled from the show after being accused of raping a female housemate.

At the time Mzansi Magic released a statement regarding the alleged incident. “At this stage it is not exactly clear what transpired between Bexx and Adams. Having suspected that there may have been an incident of sexual misconduct, Mzansi Magic acted by removing both individuals from the house.

“Currently, Bexx and Adams are receiving support and assistance from Mzansi Magic. They are both in the care of professionals and have been given the opportunity to contact family and friends,” read the statement.
