Big Brother Royalty Vs New Contenders has kicked off with a bang, and already, we can’t get enough.
This season, we have eight returning players from previous seasons of Big Brother Australia re-entering the house, to celebrate Big Brother’s 21st birthday.
There’s Farmer Dave Graham, who came out on national television back in 2006. There’s Tully Smyth and Anthony Drew, whose tumultuous relationship was one of the series’ most talked about scandals. There’s even three past winners — Reggie Bird, Trevor Butler and Tim Dormer — who would make history as Big Brother Australia‘s first two-time winner if they were to make it to the end.
The Big Brother Royals are competing against 11 New Contenders, and already, things are getting pretty spicy.
In the first two episodes, we watched as ex-model Josh was reunited with intimacy coach Sam, who he’d shared a romantic connection with in the past. Details on what their relationship was actually all about are pretty vague, but Sam said that they’d gone on a Tinder date, it didn’t end well, and that they’d been in and out of each other’s lives for years.
After telling Sam that they should pretend like they didn’t know each other very well — to avoid having a target placed on their backs — Josh soon found himself telling Sam that she was his dream girl, and asking her for a second chance.
Sam rejected Josh’s advance, stating that they’d be better off as friends, and soon enough, Josh found himself eliminated, anyway.
Interestingly, Sam had told host Sonia Kruger when she entered the house that she was single, but the promos for the season have named Sam as Drew’s new girlfriend. You know, Drew as in Drew and Tully?
Point is, it’s set to get explosive once Drew and Tully enter the house, so we all need to know exactly when and where to tune in.
Big Brother Royalty Vs New Contenders airs four nights a week, from Monday through Thursday each week. It airs on Channel 7, at 7.30pm.
If you miss an episode, you can catch up easily. After airing, each episode is available to stream on 7 Plus.
Each week, the housemates will nominate and eliminate one another until we get down to the final, at which point, Australia will vote and decide on the winner.
