A lot of people must have been hearing of or even watching Big Brother but don’t know how to be fully part of it by voting their favorite housemates. In this post I am going to show you how to be a part of it and you would be glad you visited this blog.
Vote now to keep your favourite in the House! Big Brother Africa wants your Vote: Just remember, you are voting to keep a nominated Housemate in the House! Which means, the more you vote for your favorite nominated Housemate, the better their chance of staying in the House. The Housemate who receives the least number of votes will be Evicted. You can vote to keep a nominated Housemate in the House in three different ways:
1. By sending an SMS
2. Via the Desktop Website (on your PC).
3. Via the Mobile Website (on your Mobile phone).
To vote via SMS; send the word VOTE followed by the Housemate’s name to the number for your country (displayed in the VOTE section). For example if you are voting from Ethiopia send Vote Michael to 8089. SMS’s are charged as applicable depending on your mobile network provider. For those in Nigeria it shouldn’t cost more than 4 Naira.
Please Note: that you can vote 100 times by SMS per telephone number during each voting period.
Desktop Website / Mobile Website Voting:
Voting on the desktop or mobile website is free and you are allowed to vote only once per hour on the website and again once per hour on the mobile site. Voting begins immediately after the Nomination show at 7:30pm (WAT) on Monday nights and closes at 5am (WAT) on the following Sunday morning.
You can find out who has received the least number of Votes and who will be evicted by tuning into AfricaMagic Entertainment on Sunday evening.
The following mechanism to manage the voting for the 14 participating countries has been put in place:
1 participating country = 1 vote
Remaining countries constitute the 15th vote, which should break any potential deadlocks.
So… here’s how it works:
Viewers will vote to keep the housemate they wish to see stay in the Big Brother house – regardless of the participant’s country of origin.
Each of these “country” votes will count as one vote.
The remaining countries votes will form the 15th vote.
The housemate with the least number of country votes (out of the 15 votes) will leave the house.
Even where the participant from one specific country has been evicted, the viewers from that country will still be able to participate in the game and vote.
In the final week, viewers will be asked to vote for their favourite housemate from those who are left in the house.
In the event that there is a deadlock between two of the three nominees, the actual votes from each of the 15 regions will be added together in order to ascertain who stays and who goes.
