Moving from Nine to Channel Seven to host Big Brother for a second time, Sonia says the housemates this time around are “compelling.”
The beloved host also confirmed there will be a Big Brother romance amongst two of the housemates.
“I can’t say too much about it, but you will see that unfold,” she says. “It’s a beautiful romance. It’s not salacious.
“That kind of love affair in the house I’m happy to see,” she told New Idea.
With $250,000 up for grabs, Big Brother won’t make it easy for his house guests.
Aside from cooking, cleaning, recycling and doing their own laundry, the contestants will compete in gruelling challenges and games.
Winning challenges in the house could be the difference between winning and losing the entire competition, as Sonia admits this revived Big Brother series is very similar to Survivor.
“Things get a little bit awkward and heated,” she teased to WHO.
“They’ll either vote for whoever has played a brilliant strategic game or they may vote with their heart and go with the person they love the most,” Sonia says.
