Friday Night Live is a event that occured every Friday night where the housemates competed for prizes and power in the game.

It was replaced by the Big Brother Showdown in Big Brother Australia 10.


Background

The live weekly game show was first introduced in Big Brother Australia 5 where all housemates competed for various prizes and privileges that they could share with their chosen fellow housemate. Aside from that, the winning housemate will also gain power that could give them an advantage for the nominations and even evictions.

The winner of the week's Friday Night Live will automatically become the Head Of The House and is usually rewarded with the following privileges:

  • The winning housemate will gain access to the Rewards Room, a luxurious private room in the house filled with various amenities such as movies and a private pool.
  • The winning housemate could take one fellow Housemate into the Strategy Room.
  • The winning housemate could nominate a fellow Housemate with points doubled, which means if he gave 3 points to a housemate, it could become 6 points.
  • The winning housemate will have the power to change the set of nominees. It means the Head of House could replace a supposed nominee with another housemate if ever they want to.

In the following seasons, other additional prizes were given to the winning housemate.


Friday Night Games

Due to the popularity of the competition, Channel Ten created a spin-off game show entitled "Friday Night Games" that aired throughout 2006, where various Australian Celebrities various challenges competing for a A$50,000 donation to the charity of their choice.
