Big brother Naija is a reality TV show in Nigeria based on Big brother's television franchise. The show, which was first aired as "Big Brother Nigeria" in 2006, paused for nine years until its grand return in 2017. Since then, it has continued every year, and selected housemates live in a totally isolated house. The participants then have to win through different stages. The number of housemates varies; however, it ranges from 12 to 21 members. The grand prize also varies, but most times, winners go home with thousands of dollars, cars, and houses.

How to get selected as a housemate at Big Brother Naija Season 7

bbnaija 2022 don't sleep on the fame

Getting selected as a housemate in the Big Brother Naija house is not challenging. And no, you do not need to be "connected" or famous before you can get in. You have to meet certain conditions, and you need to stand out from the crowd of people, like you, who also want to be part of the show. 

Big Brother Naija season 7 application form

Generally speaking, you need to submit an application to enter any show. What does this mean? To be a part of Big brother Naija season 7, fill out this application form. Pay attention that there is no shortcut to submitting the application. Before you do that, make sure you have fulfilled the following criteria:

· You must be a Nigerian citizen

The initial condition to become a part of Big brother Naija season 7 is to be a Nigerian citizen. If you hold dual citizenship, you can participate as long as you are Nigerian. Unfortunately, non-citizens cannot be a part of the show.

· Meet the minimum age requirement 

To become a Big brother Naija housemate, you must be at least 21 years old by July 1st, 2022.

· Have your identity document ready: Ensure that you have a valid ID that shows you are a Nigerian. If you cannot prove your identity, you might be expelled at the first phase of the selection process.

· Be stable and dramatic

Before you think of applying to join Big brother Naija, make sure you are mentally stable. Since BBNaija is a reality-based tv show, things can go sideways, which means you need to be strong emotionally. This is vital because you will not have your phone for almost 90 days and will not be able to reach out to anyone, aside from your fellow housemates, for emotional support. Such conditions are not everyone's cup of tea. Therefore, examine yourself or submit your medical reports if possible.

Furthermore, you must be a dramatic and (we can't stress this enough) fascinating person that people want to watch. Notice how housemates like Erica, Cee-C, and Tboss constantly got tongues wagging? It's because they loved drama. Even though none of them went home with the prize, they still stayed in the house for a considerable time. 

· You must be educated

You do not need any professional degree, but you must be, at the very least, a secondary school graduate.

Big Brother Naija starting date

The start date for BBNaija 2022 has not been announced. However, as with previous seasons, we expect the show to start sometime in July. Keep an eye on BBNaija’s official social media pages for updates. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu will return as the host.

How do I partake in the online auditions?

Due to the recent pandemic, auditions were moved online, but you can still do your best to prove yourself a worthy contestant. The most frequently asked question regarding Big Brother Naija is how to give online auditions. It's simple: Sign up on the BBNaija website and upload a 2-minute video explaining why you should be selected. If the managers and producers like your content, they will ask you to line up for final auditions. 

How to succeed at the Big Brother Naija 2022 auditions.

1. Keep to the time limit

While making a video of yourself, keep the time limit in your mind. It should not exceed two minutes. Make sure to keep it simple, natural, and quick. That alone can impress the Big brother Naija season 6 producers.

2. Explain why you should be considered

The other most crucial factor you must include is why your application should be considered. There are thousands of participants; hence, in your two-minute video, you should be able to demonstrate your skills and convince them that you would be a perfect housemate.

3. Add your credentials

Before submitting your video, check whether you have added your name, email, and phone number. These are important so that the reviewers can contact you when they find you suitable.

4. Avoid filters and music.

The main things that you must avoid at all costs are filters and background music. Keep your video raw, simple, and decent. Do not add any soundtracks or transitions.
