Series Chronology
Previous Series Big Brother 5
Next Series Big Brother 7

Big Brother 6 was the sixth series of Big Brother in the UK, a reality television show on Channel 4, in which a number of contestants live an isolated existence in a purpose-built house who try to avoid being evicted by public vote, with the aim of winning a large cash prize at the end of the run. Big Brother 6 ran for eleven weeks, at the time the longest the programme had lasted (subsequent series extended the duration to thirteen weeks). The sixth series began on 27 May 2005 and ended on 12 August of the same year.

Makosi Musambasi returned in 2010 to compete in Ultimate Big Brother. She entered on Day 1 and become the second Ultimate housemate to be evicted on Day 11. Anthony Hutton also returned as a guest on Day 10 to have a picnic date with Makosi.

Pre-seriesEdit

The first reports of this series were announced in March 2005 when Channel 4 confirmed that Big Brother would return for its sixth series in the summer of that year. Within that announcement the company revealed that host Davina McCall, Big Brother's Little Brother presenter Dermot O'Leary, and Big Brother's Big Mouth (called Big Brother's EForum the previous year) host Russell Brand would return along with the show. Soon after, Channel 4 programming director Kevin Lygo told the press that Big Brother 5's evil theme would not return despite its success the previous year and that the programme would be renewed for 2006 and beyond.

In April, Channel 4 confirmed that Big Brother 6 would start on 27 May 2005, in keeping with the tradition that Big Brother UK would start in late May. On 30 April 2005, Channel 4 revealed the eye for the series, a sliced mirror of alternating black and blue strips, in reality two eyes on top of each other. This helped fuel rumours about two houses, an idea that although never coming to fruition, was put into practice during the 2003 series of Big Brother in Australia. On 9 May 2005, Channel 4 began airing countdown bumpers, starting at eighteen days rather than the usual ten days before the launch; subsequent series began airing countdown bumpers ten days before the premier. Channel 4 contradicted itself two days before the launch show, confirming that Big Brother 6 would, in fact, be evil. The broadcaster also told the press that there would be thirteen housemates with a theme of "unlucky thirteen," inspired by triskaidekaphobia.

HouseEdit

The House for Big Brother 6 was a radical change from the oppressive and angled house from the previous year. House designer Patrick Watson described the design as "spirational and yet not wildly practical." Although the House is still quite small, light pale colours and high camera angles give the viewer the impression that the House is larger than it actually is. Watson also revealed that he accomplished this by extensively utilising mirrors for an airier and cooler atmosphere.

HousematesEdit

13 housemates entered the House on Day 1. On Day 29, three other housemates entered the Secret Garden. Makosi then had to choose two of them to enter the main House; she chose Orlaith and Eugene. When Orlaith voluntarily left the House on Day 65, Kinga, who was the third housemate from the Secret Garden, re-entered the House.

NotesEdit

Note 1: Makosi was told on Day 1 that the housemates who received the most nominations that week would be immune from the first eviction. She was therefore given the secret mission of trying to get the most nominations that week. She succeeded in her task, receiving the most nominations along with Roberto and Sam, who were now immune. She then had to choose the two housemates to go up for eviction, as all the other housemates' nominations became voided. She chose Mary and Craig.

Note 2: As Vanessa discussed nominations, all housemates were up for eviction and their nominations were voided. Had this not happened, Derek and Sam would have faced the public vote.

Note 3: As punishment for discussing nominations, Craig, Derek and Roberto were banned from nominating.

Note 4: As punishment for discussing nominations, Anthony and Maxwell were banned from nominating. As Makosi was on a secret mission, she had to evict one person from the secret garden, the other two entered the House. Makosi chose to evict Kinga, and Eugene and Orlaith entered the House.

Note 5: Big Brother set the housemates a task, telling them Big Brother would lie to them twice. Big Brother told the housemates that the weeks nominations were optional. This was the first lie. As always, nominations were compulsory; those that did not nominate would face the public vote. Only Anthony, Craig and Kemal nominated - saving them from the public vote. Big Brother then told the second lie by announcing that the housemates up for eviction were Anthony, Craig and Kemal, when in fact they were the only housemates not up. On eviction night, the housemates decided which of the two housemates with the most eviction votes would leave. Makosi and Vanessa were chosen by the public and Vanessa was evicted by every housemate except Kemal.

Note 6: Instead of nominating those that they wanted to evict, the housemates had to nominate those who they wanted to stay in the House.

Note 7: After Orlaith walking, Kinga was brought into the House. She was instantly set a secret mission in which she needed to get at least one person not to nominate her. If one person failed to nominate her, she would be immune and would definitely appear in the final week of Big Brother. She passed her task as none of the housemates nominated her for eviction.

Note 8: There were no nominations in the final week. There was also a mid-week eviction in the final week. The housemate who had received the fewest votes from the public (to win) by Wednesday night would finish in fifth place, leaving four housemates in the final. This housemate was Craig, leaving Anthony, Eugene, Kinga, and Makosi in the final four.
