Following the success of the countless love-related reality TV shows in Australia, Big Brother is casting for next year and has stipulated that they’re only looking for single housemates.

“Calling all SINGLE housemates to come and play Big Brother’s game. Do you think you have what it takes to be crowned the winner of Big Brother 2023? Then apply now,” the tagline on the casting page reads – with emphasis on the word ‘single’ in capital letters.

The casting website says that filming will commence approximately late October this year.

The guidelines stipulate that contestants need to be 18 years of age or over by 31st June 2022,  be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident and be available for one day between 19th and 30th of September 2022 for a potential audition with producers.

Big Brother 2023 auditions will be split into a series of sections and questions that take around 15-20 minutes to complete. After the questionnaire, interested applicants will need to submit a video that demonstrates their personality and explain what it is about them that would make them a great housemate.

If you’re single and are interested in applying for Big Brother 2023, you can do so here.

Big Brother is casting single contestants

Big Brother 2022 wrapped in June and Reggie was crowned the first two-time Big Brother winner in the world. Reggie beat out Johnson Ashak and 34-year-old Taras Hrubyj-Piper, on top of many other contestants, to claim her victory.

The first time Reggie won the show was back in 2003 when she beat Chrissie Swan to win the show’s third season 19 years ago.

“Thank you to everyone that voted for me… I hope I did you all proud,” Reggie said after the announcement of her second win.

Despite Reggie’s huge fan base, and her unbelievable betting odds to win, the 48-year-old said that she didn’t think she was going to win Big Brother 2022.

“I honestly didn’t think that I had this in the bag again, I thought it was going to be one of the boys taking it out and I was absolutely stunned when Sonia called my name out,” she told PerthNow.

“It just goes to show the love and support of the Australian public for me. It’s just unbelievable.”

Reggie’s struggles have been well documented – she’s been declared legally blind as a result of a rare condition called retinitis pigmentosa and her eight-year-old son was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
