Big Brother 12 Germany
« on: October 08, 2011, 02:42:45 AM »
In case of a possible series in 2012!

In my opinion it is very important to change a lot of things in comparison to the former series.
A new series could be run under the title "Evil Big Brother" which include that Big Brother will be a enemy of the housemates and he will play the game against the participants.
It could be the biggest revolution since "Big Brother The Battle(2003)".

Either way it can't get any worse than BB11 :)

Like those mock posters spongebob, though BBUKResurrected I think BB Germany has proven time and time again when you think it doesn't get any worse, it does.

I don't know how it's rated or how it's been received but the trouble with Germany is if they do a season without a rich/poor divide that doesn't perform they'll just use it as an excuse to have the rich/poor divide back yet again the next year.   Perhaps as Germany like the "divide" concept they should try something similar to BB Australia 3 and have two virtually identical houses merging into one as that for me was a natural progression of the rich/poor divide.

It is very simple. The public has become with series 4(the battle), 5(365 days) and 6(the village) the most impressed series since the birth of the format world wide! Now the viewers want to get back that feeling when they watch BB. With The Battle they started a complete new version and BB has shown a new face. The participants was split into two teams which had to battle against each other. With the 365 days series there was even three different living areas and with the village we felt like the truman show came true!

The Village being a popular format? it was one of the least successful seasons. I actually think if the show stays on RTL2 its a lost case. I didn't watch more than the launch night of last season and TBH I never felt like I missed something.

did I say "popular"? I don't think so ;)
But I'm with you, I also think the show need a new home. But there is the question: which channel wants to be this home? Maybe Kabel Eins?! I hope they will give the old brother a loooooong break or a extrem makeover

Going back to the idea of Big Brother: The Battle might not be the worst thing in the world, but they need to structure the show right and not change the rules every week to suit - and of course also add something new, and in this case it would probably succeed or fail based on the scale of the tasks and "battles".    Although they've done the rich/ppor thing many times since it's been a few years since they really focused on big showpiece tasks.

yeah and I don't think Kabel Eins would be a guarantee to get good ratings either. I actually think it would end up like BB UK 12.
Also I think the format is one thing but given where reality shows are drifting these days in germany I have no hope anyone besides these trashy porn stars and fame wannabes would apply and the cast makes the season. those people are soo stupid, have nothing interesting to say and are bascially in the house for breathing, eating, sleeping only. hence the last seasons were so bad.
I think the only chnannel that could handle and provide a semi interesting cast is VOX at the moment and given its from the same family as RTL 2 it might be a possibility after all.

Make the stakes higher. No one is eager to compete when they have just about 70k € when they cut the taxes.

Something about 500k with taxes in some 80-100 days would be the perfect format, even for RTLII.

Problem is: Endemol would like to sell format, but RTLII is getting less eager by the year. ;)

According to insider information, BB12 might start in the 4th quarter of 2012 at the earliest and most probably at a new location.

Wasn't the jackpot €1m for either BB5 or BB6 (the one year seasons?)

those were different times though. much better ratings = more money of sponsors to invest

I think this could be a good move. I'm not normally in favour of BB's being rested as I think there is always a danger of losing the shows core fan base if they get used to the show not being on air. However, I think a delay of 6 months or so is not too big and Germany has aired so much BB over the last 11 years that a short break is needed.

I think they kind of need to do what they did with BB7 and basically reset the show and essentially go back to basics, and then rebuild the show once again from that point.

Hate to tell you but Wikipedia has also stated that Gran Hermano will return to Columbia and Big Brother to Poland for years now so it's not always the most reliable source.

Yes please, don't use wikipedia as the source for your news, we all know that wikipedia is not the best place to find information about Big Brother

Also, try to look into to the forum before you post a new topic. There is already a topic about this season ;)

Any confirmation yet then on if and when BB12 will go ahead?   Can't see anything myself on bbfun.de - but things can get lost in translation.

However, the one reality format closely associated with the channel over many years is currently absent from its line-up. In its 11th season last year, Big Brother attracted an average 7.5% share. “We are very satisfied with this,” says Andersen, “but how we will continue with it is too early to say.”

Yes - because nearly a year after the last series of an annual returning series really is "too soon".  What he basically means is they'll go crying back to Big Brother when the bubble bursts on their "scripted reality" crap.

I just don't get the point in "scripted reality" at all.   I think TOWIE would actually be quite interesting if it was a genuine documentary following pretty much the same type of people in their genuine day to day life rather than everything being so obviously scripted and forced.

Probably Big Brother will come back next year as an event programming after a break of more than one year since the last series in 2011  claims Marcus Wolter, CEO Endemol Germany. He also says that his company is still in good contact with RTLII(channel of BB since 1st series in 2000) about the future of Big Brother.

Some interesting news

Marcus Wolter (CEO Endemol Deutschland) promises: "[...] the history of big brother in Germany will be continued.)

Furthermore he says the show is in an creative break ("Sabbatical"). Endemol Deutschland is still in negotiations with several channels.

Manuel Weis, editor of the online and tv magazine "quotenmeter.de"  claims: the show needs to come back in 2013 for another series, otherwise there will be almost no chance for any return on tv in the future.
