Big Brother Germany contestants to be exposed with Coronavirus truth
Berlin : While the world is fighting to contain the contagious coronavirus, the fourteen men and women, contestants in Big Brother Germany, will be among the last set of people who will get to know about the ongoing pandemic.
Interestingly, the contestants are automatically in quarantine due to the format of the game since February 10. They will be told about the pandemic on Tuesday in a special live show.
However, the show's rules do not allow contestants to be in touch with the outside world, but after the raging comments and slamming from the people for the show on social media, the makers have decided to inform the contestants.
The network said that it had taken “special hygienic measures” to protect the contestants, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, hasn’t detailed what these measures were. There have been more than 7000 cases of the coronavirus in Germany, with 17 deaths.
Sat 1 claimed that none of the contestants have been tested positive to the deadly virus.
Contestants of Big Brother Canada were only recently made aware of the situation, while the BBC says that Big Brother Brazil contestants are also in the dark.
