Twelve new housemates will begin an incredible 91 day adventure as M-Net's blockbuster hit reality TV series Big Brother Africa returns to DStv screens continent-wide on Sunday August 24 at 19:00 CAT!

With USD 100 000 up for grabs once again, live 24/7 coverage and a brand new house ready to open its doors, season 3 is set to mirror the runaway success of the first two seasons.

And whilst the identity of the housemates remains secret until the show goes live on air to over 40 African countries, M-Net has confirmed that Kabelo "KB" Ngakane will return as series presenter in a role he reprises from last season. The much-loved Channel O VJ and radio DJ, whose recently released single How Low Can You Go has seen him make the leap from TV personality to performer, will continue to be the primary link between the housemates and series fans.

In addition, M-Net has offered fans of the show a sneak peek at the all new Big Brother house, which underwent a total transformation in preparation for day one.

Comprising two bedrooms, one bathroom, a large lounge, an open plan dining area, a kitchen, diary room and a garden, complete with a striking new pool, it's in the décor that the house marks it's most dramatic differences. Colorful, bold and with a style that can only be described as an eclectic mix of energetic, youthful and fairytale, the Big Brother Africa house is a character all on its own!

Living up to the new series tagline of Wild, Wicked and Wacky, the house includes unique features such as a "clock-themed bathroom" that are destined to capture fan attention and keep housemates entertained. In a house built for the express purposes of isolating housemates from the outside world, in a space where dates and times are excluded, it's definitely worth tuning in to see what the housemates reactions will be to a bathroom jam-packed with clocks that don't tell time!

In addition, the new house is equipped with 24 cameras and 52 microphones to provide audiences with a birds-eye view of the show all day, every day on DStv channel 198. Fans who tune in for the launch show will get the first complete look at the house, from top to bottom!

But the house isn't the only element of the show that has evolved. The Brother Africa team has innovated once more and the popular "˜Shower Hour' will now move from its morning slot to a late-night slot, giving housemates a new twist to life in the BB house!

Now, with the series just days away from launch, anticipation around the series is growing fast as fans wait for the big moment. Also gearing up for the launch is the M-Net website, which last year saw record-breaking traffic as fans of the show voted for evictions, downloaded videos, posted forum messaging and caught up with the latest breaking Big Brother news. The official website of the show is and it's here that audiences will once more be able to interact with the series.

Given the popularity of Big Brother, several other official "˜fansites' have also sprung up and fans who want to visit these can access them through the official Big Brother Africa website at

In addition to the Big Brother Africa website, fans can also interact with the series by SMS'ing the Big Brother Africa strapline, which is available on screen on DStv channel 198. For details of SMS numbers to use in each country, for detailed information on the Big Brother Africa housemates and for breaking news from the house, DStv audiences need only press the OK button on their DStv remote to access the series. This "˜OK' function, plus the Big Brother Africa website go live at 21:00 CAT on Sunday August 24. Plus every Tuesday to Friday, fans who've missed any of the Big Brother Africa action can tune in to AfricaMagic Plus channel 115 on all Dstv bouquets for daily edited highlights shows, along with a Monday night nomination show.

For now though, all attention is focused on Big Brother Africa 3 and the all-important launch. So diarize Sunday August 24 at 19:00 CAT, Big Brother Africa 3, on DStv channel 198 and AfricaMagic Plus channel 115 on DStv at 21:00. The launch show is set to feature special performances by Nigerian stars Naeto C and Ikechukwu, as well as the big announcement of the twelve new Big Brother Africa 3 housemates!

Another male housemate known as "Thami" from South Africa

Something I have observed is, those countries which had female housemates are now represented by male ones and vice versa!
