Producers on the new series of Big Brother say they are casting a diverse range of characters for the 2020 edition. Now we can reveal the mummy blogger entering the house…
There are more leaks coming from the set of Big Brother than from the penthouse pool on House Rules (but that’s a whole other story).
Not only has TV Blackbox been able to keep you across every decision and technical issue, but the entire cast list has been leaked for former winner Benjamin Norris.
That revelation has led Channel 7 and Endemol Shine to make the unprecedented decision of naming cast members before the premiere, with at least one housemate set to be named during 7 News on Sunday night.
While we have been having internal discussions on whether to release any more names, the fact producers have decided to do so means that conundrum has been answered.
On our new streaming program The Ben, Rob & Robbo Show, Ben has already named two housemates; Ian W from Perth and AFL star Daniel Gorringe.
Now we can reveal mummy blogger Zoe George will also be entering the house. Although her blog has been inactive since December, George describes herself as;
Mother. Wife. Writer. Teacher. Funny. Honest. Energetic. Prankster. Subtle as a brick in the face.
With a husband and two children, the casting of Zoe confirms this production of Big Brother will indeed take a different approach to Channel 9’s casting of the program (which contained mostly twenty-something singles).
The shooting of the latest series has faced its share of problems; from faulty cameras not recording evictions to a shutdown caused by COVID-19, but insiders tell TV Blackbox the screening of the first episode has gone down remarkably well.
Our spies tell us there have been high profile executives visiting the Endemol Shine Australia office in Sydney for private viewings of the show, which has been well received.
On Monday’s edition of The Ben, Rob & Robbo Show at 1pm AEST we will have a very special announcement regarding Big Brother. You can watch the live feed of the show at our Facebook page HERE.
