Format

Housemate Setup

There were fourteen housemates this season and all lived in the same house. The housemates were competing for US$200 000. Due to the strike that occurred on Day 6, Big Brother reduced the prize money to US$180 000, however, Big Brother restored the money back to US$200 000 on Day 84 following their redemption. This season, fourteen countries participated and each provided one contestant from the previous four seasons to be a housemate. All fourteen countries were returning countries. These fourteen countries were Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

Head of House

The Head of House was feature that would give one particular housemate special and unique privileges. This would especially come in handy during nominations for they were given a special privilege in terms of saving and replacing nominees. Each Head of House for the week would be determined by the Head of House challenges played on Friday. Whoever wins the Head of House challenge becomes the following week's Head of House.

Nominations

Every week, housemates were to nominate two other housemates up for eviction. The housemates who received the most nominations were then put up for eviction. The Head of House must then decide which housemate to save and which housemate to replace them with or the Head of House will also face eviction. If the Head of House was also nominated, they can save themselves and put up another housemate in their place. Depending on the Head of House's decision, that list will be the housemates put up for eviction that week and Africa will then decide who stays and who goes.

Voting

This season, viewers voted for the housemate they wanted to save. If a housemate received the least votes from Africa, that housemate would be evicted out of the competition. During the finale week, viewers instead voted for the housemate they wanted to win and see walk away with the prize money. The votes were split into fourteen country votes with the Rest of Africa split as the fifteenth vote to split up possible ties.

Housemates

On Day 1, fourteen housemates from past seasons entered the house on launch night.

Twists

A twist is an addition to the Big Brother game that makes the competition more interesting and gives different results and also contributes in changing a housemate's opinion on the game that they are playing. The following twists occurred this season:

Secrets

Each of the fourteen housemates entered with a secret that was worth US$1 000. Each housemate's secret was dropped with a cryptic hint for the rest of the housemates to try and discover them. If a housemate goes through their eviction without having their secret revealed, they get to keep their US$1 000. If they reveal their secret on their own, they lose their US$1 000. If another housemate discovers their secret, that housemate will take their US$1 000. These were the secrets of the housemates:

Housemate Secret Discovered by:
Code He was celibate for seven months. N/A
Hannington He had a fling with his girlfriend's mother. No one. He revealed his secret to his fellow housemates before his eviction on Day 14.
Jennifer She eloped with a 30-year-old man when she was 16 years old. N/A
Kaone He was arrested for assaulting a friend with a bowl of eggs. Tatiana discovered his secret before his eviction on Day 84.

Meryl She is having an affair with a high profile Namibian celebrity. N/A
Munya He kissed another man while filming a movie. No one. He revealed his secret to Tatiana on Day 14.
Mwisho He is dating two women at the same time. N/A
Paloma She urinated on herself after smoking marijuana for the first time. N/A
Sammi He has a deceased illegitimate child. No one. He revealed his secret to his fellow housemates before his eviction on Day 14.
Sheila She has a fear of short people. N/A
Tatiana She is a very good singer, but no one is aware of that. N/A
Uti He was once a Britney Spears fan. N/A
Yacob He has never been in love. N/A

Dagger

The Dagger was a twist that was introduced during the live eviction show on Day 7. It gave an evicted housemate the privilege to punish any of the housemates that were still competing in the house for a week up until the live eviction show. Should any of the housemates fail to comply with their punishment, Big Brother will severely punish them with a worse punishment for the duration of the Dagger length. The Daggers were very similar to the Molotov Cocktails in season 4. These were the Daggers thrown at the housemates:

Upcoming Week Evicted Housemate Dagger Punishment Inflicted Housemate
2 Tatiana This housemate had to dress up in a pig suit and clean the kitchen, bathroom and toilet three times a day using ear-buds and a toothbrush. Lerato
Kaone This housemate had to dress up in a French Maid's costume and make sure the house is clean before they go to bed. Uti
3 Hannington This housemate was prohibited from drinking alcohol. Sheila
Sammi This housemate had to bake three large loaves of bread everyday for their fellow housemates. Lerato
4 Lerato This housemate was prohibited from talking to any other housemate of the opposite sex. Tatiana
5 Tatiana This housemate had to pack all of their clothes and leave them in the storeroom. Uti
6 Yacob This housemate had to make everyone's bed and keep the bedroom tidy at all times. Sheila
7 Sheila This housemate had to wear a pair of shorts and a pair of gloves. Paloma
8 Code This housemate had to crow like a rooster and moo like a cow for 5 minutes each time they're instructed to. Mwisho
9 Paloma This housemate had to clean all the carpets in the house everyday. Meryl
10 Jennifer This housemate was prohibited from using profanity. Uti
11 Meryl This housemate had to prepare the dinner table and make sure that the housemates sit on the table every night. Uti

13 Kaone This housemate had to sing and dance to the requested songs by other housemates. Lerato
Tatiana This housemate had to change their clothes three times daily, strip and dance for the housemates whenever they're instructed to. Sheila

The Barn

In this twist, evicted housemates will be living in the barn for an undisclosed amount of time. It's a simple version of the main house and barnmates will have a second chance to win the prize money. They can still nominate housemates to join them but the housemates can't nominate them because of the assumption that they're actually evicted. On Day 77, the barn officially shut down as some of the barnmates returned to the main house while others were officially evicted.
