Ever-popular Big Brother personality will return to the series revival on Nine.
Goldman hosted the Up Late series during Big Brother’s incarnation on TEN, winning legions of fans for his uncanny ability to host hours of live television with limited content. He also fronted Friday Night Live games. Fans of the show have consistently requested his return to the series.
Goldman told TV Tonight, “OMG!! So excited about the new show. It’s gonna be the best ever!”
GO! will air a late-night edition of Big Brother, but while it will have some M rated content it is not expected to resort to the nudity and risque content previously seen on Up Late.
Goldman says his role is to help producers of the show tell the story of what’s going on.
“I remember when Reggie said she didn’t want to go back to her life. She stood there and she cried … and you know, we fall in love with these people and understand their lives and their personalities and where they’ve been and what they’ve done. You really feel a part of the House in so many ways. You get to know these people and you feel like they’re a part of your family and you start to care for them – and when they’re crying their eyes out saying they don’t want to go back to their lives, then you don’t want them to either! You want their life to change.
“[There are more…] when Marty and Jess said “I love you” and kissed each other, and they ended up getting married! When Sarah-Marie – a big beautiful girl, doing a bum dance – showed how great it is to be yourself and not care what anyone thinks. Those are the amazing moments which I long for and which I’ve missed, not having Big Brother in my life.”
The new “family-friendly” Big Brother, hosted by Sonia Kruger, launches on Nine in August.
