Big Brother Mzansi Application and Audition Steps 

Have what it takes to captivate South Africa? Your moment has arrived! #BBMzansi Online Audition is OPEN and entering is simple.

  • Record a 2-minute video clip of yourself showing Big Brother what you’re made of and explain why you deserve to be in the upcoming season of Big Brother Mzansi.
  • While doing this, ensure you are real, try as much as possible to be yourself and be self-confident.
  • Ensure you use a very high-quality phone camera to make the video attractive enough for the panel to watch.
  • Hold the camera firmly to avoid a blurry video output and if necessary, you can record with light to ensure your video is not dark and your face is well seen.
  • If you notice any error in the video, you can quickly edit it or redo another video to stand a better chance of winning the audition.
  • Your camera must be held horizontally, not in portrait style, and make sure you put real-life examples or experiences when describing yourself.
  • The video must as well contain your Name, E-mail and Phone Number clearly stated and avoid all forms of filters, special video effects, copyrighted music and background music.

  • If, in reviewing your form, any inconsistency in your BioData or deliberate withholding of information that is very relevant to your personality is noticed, you may be disqualified from the selection process.
  • It is important to also note here that if you apply for the reality TV show audition, you will need to grant the organizer of the event to conduct civil, criminal, and medical and other types of background check they deemed fit.
  • All selected applicants would receive an email notification if they have been selected for the next phase of the audition.
  • If you do not receive an email by the stipulated date, you have not been selected.
  • If you are chosen to live in the house, it is your responsibility to make any necessary arrangements with your employer and family in anticipation of your extended absence.
