‘Gran Hermano’ Set to Debut on Telemundo


It’s “Big Brother”, Telemundo style. The great sociological experiment known as “Gran Hermano” begins Sunday, January 10 at 8p, when host Giselle Blondet introduces the 14 housemates selected to live under one roof with more than 40 cameras and 90 microphones recording their every move — 24 hours a day for three months.

The seven women and seven men will be completely cut off from the outside world, with no access to cell phones, television, friends or family. Instead, they’ll have to focus their emotions on the love, hatred, friendships, tensions and disputes that unfold inside the house.

Each week, the participants will nominate each other, but ultimately the viewing audience will decide who leaves the show, until only one person is left to take home the $250,000 grand prize.

Telemundo will feature extensive “Gran Hermano” programming all week long, including:

“Gala de Expulsion” (Sundays at 8p) – Blondet will review the week’s best moments on “Gran Hermano” and lead a debate between previously evicted house guests, the relatives and friends of the nominees of the night, and connect with the house directly to inform the remaining participants of the results of the voting audience and announce who leaves the house.

“Nominaciones” (Wednesdays at 7p) – From the studio adjoining the house, Blondet will review the highlights of the week inside the house, focusing on the housemates nominated for the week.

“Gran Hermano: La Novela” (Weeknights at 12a) – This daily show will summarize key developments inside the house every 24 hours, focusing on intimate aspects of the housemates’ close quarters, like budding romances and animosities.

Telemundo.com/GranHermano (24 hours a day) – Visitors to the website will have exclusive access to all the action in the house 24 hours a day, from the moment contestants wake up to the time they go to sleep.
