What is Big Brother?
The last one left in the house wins. The house is rigged with cameras recording every moment of the contestants' lives. The contestants are deprived of contact with the outside world except those allowed by the editorial team. Every week there are tasks to perform which test their community spirit and team-work. Throughout the series, the contestants are required to nominate two of their number to be voted out of the house.
The audience at home decides which of the two must leave. The format is centred around 4 elements: 1) The environment in which the contestants live - it's stripped - back to basics; 2) The knock-out system by which the contestants are voted out of the house by the audience at home; 3) The tasks, set by the editorial team, which the contestants must complete on a weekly basis; 4) The diary room, in which the contestants are required to record their feelings, frustrations, thoughts and their nominations.
