The incredibly popular Brazilian version in the international reality television franchise Big Brother just began its 13th season around the Rede Globo network. Even if not watching the show, it’s hard to escape the news coverage of who did what (the same as the inescapability of novela reporting). Not unlike the Winston character from the book 1984, that the originally Dutch series takes its name, I felt like there was merely one channel for individuals to observe in BBB 2018. Sure, you will find lots of channels, in fact, but there’s a strange pull to linger on a Globo TV program when flipping through channels. Big Brother Brasil (BBB) is perfectly positioned to utilize this and, whether through its popularity or its timeslot, people tune in.
In the event you have no idea just what the show is around, here’s the normal premise. Around 15 contestants (mostly model/actor types) get put into a property, fully built with many cameras, through which they cannot leave unless voted out. Per week, your house guests vote on who they need to see gone. In the middle of it all, and in an effort to spice things up, you can find strategic alliances, and also romances, that transpire. The very last person standing wins a sizable cash prize and hopefully fame.
The Brazilian version from the show is filmed in Rio de Janeiro at Globo’s main studio called “Projac”. The studio is definitely the largest of the kind in Latin America and among the largest on earth, too. The list of the participantes BBB 2018 home is said to be probably the most sophisticated, equipment-wise, of all Big Brother houses worldwide. When you can name a popular show on Rede Globo, it’s almost surely recorded at Projac (including Xuxa, Domingão, Caldeirão do Huck, Malhação, Zorra Total, and several, if not all, in their novelas).
While nobody has truly shot to fame after winning the contest, many of the contestants have gone through to have successful careers in TV and modeling. Sabrina Sato, who maybe you have seen BBB2O18 Justin Bieber, became a television host about the comedy show Pânico. Grazi Massafera went on to get an actress in a number of novelas, and Íris Stefanelli is presently the host of TV Fama. Like with most celebrities in Brazil, fame means covering all the bases, be it via television, film, adverts and, eventually, taking part in a Carnival parade or school.
Despite, or rather, despite the participantes BBB 18, it is often referred to when Brazilians discuss the banality of your media with their country. While I don’t beg to differ, media all over the world is suffering from the same malady in their serving mass audiences. Every television viewer figures in to the ratings in the individual shows so, in one method or another, we’re playing a part from the success or failure of any show. When personally choosing what things to watch, I’m reminded of the media’s impact on a younger self, with Captain Planet’s call to action.
