    'Shower Hour' Excites BBA 8 Viewers

    The Big Brother Africa (BBA) is unarguably one of Africa's biggest reality TV shows. The show, which started about eight years ago, has become a yearly ritual which many people do not miss and it is now highly anticipated every year.
    One aspect of the show that has gradually attracted much viewership is the 'Shower Hour', which shows when the show's contestants take their early morning bath in the full glare of the viewers as there is camera everywhere.
    That aspect of the competition, as First Weekly gathered, is only available on a dedicated premium channel different from terrestrial channels. This, according to information, is because of the adult scenes in the show.
    The 2013 edition of Big Brother Africa tagged 'The Chase', has generated mixed reactions. While some sections of the viewers have shown their displeasure at the promotion of nudity, others, because of the sexual satisfaction from the exposure of the nudity of female contestants of the game show, have criticised those against the TV programme.
    Some of them told First Weekly that the contestants were aware of that aspect of the show and they agreed to go into the competition. “I don't see anything wrong with the 'Shower Hour'. Since they (the contestants) are aware that their nakedness will be beamed to the world, I don't see any fuse with that,” one of the viewers posited.
    “That programme should be scrapped; it is not promoting Africa in good light. We are not promoters of nudity, the African culture kicks against that, and we shouldn't Westernise Africa. This is not African at all,” another viewer of the show told First Weekly.

    Housemates are camped for three months in BBA, which holds in South Africa. The show has produced three Nigerian winners; Kelvin Pam (2009), Uti Nwachukwu (2010) and Karen Igho (2011). In 2012, late Goldie represented Nigeria at the show along with Chris and Ola, who left the competition at the early stage on health grounds.
