International Big Brother
Big Brother is a show produced by Endemol Entertainment for multiple television networks scattered all over the world. During a given period a number of people is locked into a house and is followed by over twenty camera's all day and night.
Big Brother is unlike any other show ever produced. At first it looks like the format resembles Real World and Expedition Robinson but the extended voyeurism, promoted by the 24h/day live video streams on the Internet and viewers voting participants out, makes it the most controversial show in television history to date.
Big Brother started in The Netherlands, Endemol Entertainment's home country, and is now spread around the western world. On this site you'll find more information about all these versions of Big Brother.
The participants locked into the house in the Dutch town Almere were part of the best-watched television show in The Netherlands in 1999. In spring 2000 there was a short follow-up titled Big Brother Vips: four groups of famous people stayed in the house for one week. The Dutch nation is now preparing for Big Brother 2000, which starts September 14th.
Another Big Brother in the Dutch language produced for Kanaal 2. Starting September 2000 Dutch people have two exciting shows to watch. Check the official site in Dutch.
