Big Brother is a reality show. It is based on the Big Brother series by Endemol. A group of people (called the Housemates) live together in an isolated house. 24 hours a day their life is recorded by hidden cameras in all the rooms in the House. They don't have TV, Internet, newspapers or watches. The Housemates are completely isolated from the outside world. Every week, each of them must enter the Diary room and nominate 2 of the other people for public eviction. The 2 or more housemates with most negative votes become nominated. For almost a week the TV viewers have to decide which of them to be evicted, voting via SMS or phone calls.
Every week the Housemates have a weekly task. Depending on whether they successfully complete the task or not, their shopping budget is increased or decreased.
During the final week, the viewers vote for which of the remaining people in the House they want to win the show. The person with most positive votes becomes a winner and receives a big money-prize. In series 1 was the prize US$50,000 and in second series was the prize €75,000.
