fifth German Big Brother will run for one year and award a €1 million prize.
A year-long version of Big Brother will debut in Germany on March 1. Three different compounds will serve as the set for the show–”a survival camp, a luxury villa and an average flat,” according to Ananova’s report, with contestants being arranged by “social status.” The fifth season of the show will award €1 million to the winner; that’s more prize money than the first four seasons of the show put together.
