Big Brother Australia 12 known as Big Brother: Revolution is the twelfth season of the Australian version of Big Brother.

This is the first Australian season to broadcast on Channel 7.



Since the Big Brother Australia 11 ended, many speculations have been said regarding a possible 12th season. However, it was stated by former production chief Andrew Backwell in 2015 that Nine Network had no plans of airing another season. The risk of the show being put on hiatus became more evident as the years went on when Nine decided not to bring back the series on air despite retaining the rights to the franchise.

In 2019, Endemol Shine Australia announced that Big Brother Australia will be returning in 2020. In October of 2019, Seven Network announced that they will be reviving the series. [1] Along with this revival comes with new changes on the series, marking it as the "new era" for Big Brother Australia. [2]

“The thrilling new era of Big Brother begins with a dynamic new house full of incredible surprises, new rules designed to create show-stopping twists and a new generation of unique and ambitious housemates determined to outstay each other no matter what Big Brother throws at them." Endemol Shine's chief content officer Peter Newman stated. [3]

Logo Changes

With the Seven's reboot, comes a new logo for the franchise. The series has adopted the new international logo of the Big Brother franchise with its flat, digital eye design. Few modifications have been made to fit in with the theme of the series.

With this adoption, Big Brother Australia is the fifth franchise to use the rebranded Big Brother logo.


It was revealed in February 5, 2020 that Sonia Kruger will return as host for the new season of Big Brother. [4] Prior to the announcement, Sonia was the series' host back in Nine Network and remained in the network after the series was put on hiatus. However, in November 2019, she confirmed that she will be transferring to Seven to appear in some of the network's newest shows. [5][6].

The House

The original house was burnt down entirely by fire prior to the official announcements on the production developments of the series. Because the original house was destroyed, a new house had to be constructed for Seven's iteration. In February 2020, photos of the house was leaked online. It was revealed that the new house is located in a refurbished WW2 Warehouse inside North Head Sanctuary in Manly, New South Wales.
