The Show


At the beginning of each week, there is a Head of Household Competition. The winner of that competition becomes the Head of Household. They are safe for the week and are given special privileges and power that the other HouseGuests do not have. With this power comes the responsibility of nominating two other HouseGuests for eviction at the Nomination Ceremony. Following the Nomination Ceremony is the Power of Veto Competition. The winner of the competition has the power to veto one of the Head of Household's nominations at the Power of Veto Meeting, forcing the Head of Household to name a replacement nominee. At the end of the week, the HouseGuests, excluding the Head of Household, unless there is a tie, and the two nominees, will vote on which of the two nominees to evict.


The show is hosted by Kungawo Msengana.

The House

The show is filmed in a house at Sasani Studios in Lyndhurst, Johannesburg.
