When the third season of Big Brother Mzansi hit screens last year after several seasons off the radar, it was received with little fanfare. This was probably because while the South African version had taken a hiatus, the continental version stepped in and took over.

Yet once it was on TV, Big Brother Mzansi proved to be a hit locally. Who could forget the drama brought by the housemates who wasted no time getting down to eating, drinking and being merry?
One of the most intriguing stories was that of the winner, Mandla Hlatshwayo, who was charismatic with the ladies and the one person who enjoyed the show the most. Hlatshwayo was just a simple man. He let it be known that he owned a spaza shop and did not think much about winning. All he wanted was to use his newfound fame to make some money to pay off his debts.
It took him a very short time to fall in love with fellow contestant, Lexi van Niekerk. The two had s*x as often as rabbits and were unapologetic about it. It was comforting for both parties that they came out of the house still feeling the same about each other. In fact, there is a rumour that the pair have a reality show coming up, but it hasn’t been confirmed.
It’s only mid-January and already word is out that another season of Big Brother Mzansi is due and you are invited to audition. The show promises the winner fame, fortune and, maybe, romance. In fact, the first two attract the third one so basically the winner will walk away with more than a cash prize.
You may bring other skills with you, but primarily you have to be bold, smart and savvy to take on the challenge.
But there is more. You have to be a citizen/ legal resident of South Africa and 21 years of age or older in order to audition for the show.
This time all the auditions will be held simultaneously between January 31 and February 1 in Durban, Cape Town and Joburg. So be content with auditioning wherever you come from because auditions will be happening elsewhere at the same time.
“Big Brother Mzansi allows us as a channel to tap our audience’s engagement specifically in the social networking space,” said Nkateko Mabaso, director of local interest channels at M-Net. “It’s a double-win for our viewers. Great viewing today drives great viewing in the future. This show is an
dream, packed with action, drama, romance and humour.”
The Joburg auditions take place at The Pyramid Venue in Eloff Street, while the Durban ones will be held at the BAT Centre (45 Maritime Place). In Cape Town go to Cape Town Lodge (101 Buitengracht Street).
The registration process happens between 8am and 3pm. Should you be registered by 3pm you will be auditioned. Do not forget to bring your ID book as that is a must.
There is no confirmation of what the prize money is going to be, but one thing is certain, it won’t be less that R1 million.
• Big Brother Mzansi 2 starts on March 29 on Mzansi Magic (channel 161). It runs for 56 days.
