Entries received from the online auditions were screened for eligibility and suitability.

How many housemates will be in the Big Brother Naija house?

Big Brother thrives on mystery, intrigue and the element of surprise.

The number of housemates and their identities is never revealed prior to the beginning of the show.

This undoubtedly ensures a keen interest in who these individuals are and what they will bring into the house.

Audiences can, however, know that the housemates were selected after a rigorous screening process to bring to life Africa’s biggest reality TV show.

You do not need any special qualifications to audition for Big Brother Naija.

What are the rules of Big Brother Naija?

A rule-book is distributed to contestants before the commencement of the show.

General rules will include – no contact with the world outside the Big Brother house, strictly no violence and an obligation to nominate fellow housemates for eviction.

What can housemates bring into the house?

Housemates are given a rulebook stating exactly what items they can bring into the house.

However, no electronic equipment can be taken into the house.

Big Brother will go through what housemates are taking into the house with them and reserves the right to remove any item/s that has been excluded as per the rulebook.

Housemates should bring two suitcases. No clothing with prominent logos or labels will be allowed.

No verbal or written communication is allowed with anyone outside the house, unless a housemate has an urgent family crisis, and this is still subject to Big Brother’s discretion.

The Big Brother house is their home for the duration of their stay.

Therefore, housemates are expected to behave as naturally as they would in their own environment.
