You've Applied For BB4... What Happens
So, you've applied for Big Brother 4 and you want to know
what happens next? Okay, forget all the speculation and read
Applications have now closed and
the producers are working their way through a mound of video
Despite rumours to the contrary,
the audition procedure will be much the same as last year:
they won't start contacting people until most, if not all,
of the video tapes have been viewed.
Rather sadly, we noticed people boasting
last week that they'd already attended an audition. However,
we were assured by the producers just days after applications
closed that no-one had even been contacted yet.
Rather, the first phase of auditions
will take place in February, so people will start hearing
from Endemol over the next few weeks.
One question many applicants will

starts. Realistically though, if you were to allow around
10 weeks from the closing date, we feel that all potential
auditionees will have been contacted by then.
Some friendly advice from BBO: if
you don't hear back, PLEASE just accept that you have not
been successful this year.
We say that every year, yet some
people still cannot accept that they've either fallen at the
first hurdle (the auditions) or didn't even get to start the
Granted, it must be incredibly disappointing
to be knocked back when you think you're God's Gift to Big
Brother, but the inevitable begging letters or abusive e-mails
are lame to say the least.
So, stuff like, "Pick me. Big
Brother reeeally needs me, as I am totally crazy!", or,
"They should get my mate in the house, she is incredibly
funny", or, "Okay
don't accept me then. Big Brother can stuff it up it's <censored>...",
are somewhat amusing (nay, laughable), but pointless.
