Is this the best way to apply for Big Brother?

Go to bigbrotherauditions.com – submitting your application form online is the best way to apply for Big Brother. Fill out your details and the questions on the form. Then upload a video of yourself – you can either film this on your mobile phone or laptop and upload the file, or use any video sharing website and paste the link. Press ‘Submit’.

 

What kind of video should I make?

Send us a clip of yourself – it can be up to 2 minutes

You should try to get the essence of your personality across in your video and what it is about you that would make the perfect housemate.  There are no rules about what you should include but you’ve only got one chance to show us  who you are and what you are about – so make it count. Please note there should be no copyrighted music

 

A few tips for making your video:-

Hold the camera steady – use both hands if possible.

Ideally the camera should be landscape not portrait.

Try not to film in front of a window (find your light or we won’t see you!)

Be as creative as you like – but please NO filters or background music!

 

If you are having any difficulties in submitting your video:

Please make sure the video is no larger than 500MB in size.

Please make sure the video is one of the acceptable formats, including AVI, WMV, MP4; MKV, M4V, FLV, MOV, MPG or MPEG.

If you continue to experience problems, please try an alternative browser on the same device, or use a different device (laptop, tablet or mobile) to complete your application.  No need to register again, just sign in using the email and password you used to register.

 

What happens after I’ve submitted my video?

We’ll look at the audition videos and if we think you’ve got housemate potential we’ll be in touch.

 

So will I be a housemate?

There’s no guarantee that by submitting a video, filling in your details, receiving a telephone call or attending an audition you’ll be invited to take part in Big Brother.

 

Can I recommend a friend?

If you know someone who would make a great Big Brother Housemate, please share the website details and encourage them to fill out an application. Everyone has to complete their own application form.

 

Will I be invited to audition?

If your online application is successful you will be invited to meet the Big Brother producers at a regional audition venue.

 

Will I hear from you?

Due to a high level volume of applications, we cannot guarantee you will hear from us.  If this is the case, and you haven’t heard from us by May 2018 assume your application has not been successful.

 

If under 18

If you are under 18 at the date of your audition we may ask you to bring someone with you.
