Big Brother Revolution was that version which had as many as 25 housemates. It had twins Edward and Erasmus who could switch every week by playing as one housemate. It was this very house that the issue of evicting two housemates started of course because of the numbers.
Uganda was represented by Philbert Okure aka Phil and Hannington who was later disqualified for unleashing his wrath on South Africa's Lerato. This is about Phil though. He was evicted on day 21 and he was the fifth housemate to be evicted.
His life in the house was so short lived but he had laid serious strategies with Liz Coka from South Africa who was able to stay in the house up to day 42. The two later caught up at the grand finale and to reflect more on what they had started in the house.
The show ended on December 06, 2009 and five weeks later, Liz was on the next plane to Uganda. This house produced two couples who are now proud parents. Elizabeth Gupta from Tanzania and Kevin Chuwan who also won the Revolution prize of $200,000 hooked up from this house and are now married and are blessed with a baby gal.
Another couple from the revolution house was that of Quinn Sieber from South Africa and Jeniffer from Mozambique who hooked up. Jeniffer noticed the chemistry early and instead opted out of the house. She later caught up with Quinn outside the house and the rest is history..They are now blessed with a child.

M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi said: "We are thrilled to be offering a huge, new, USD 300 000 prize and to include two new countries who were chosen to participate based on their ongoing interest in the series and their growing DStv audiences.
And while Ethiopia won't have a housemate this year, we'll look to include them and other non-housemate countries in other ways if the opportunity arises, as we do every season.
We are and have always been proudly committed to making this a truly African show. And as for Mozambique, they will be included with a housemate - but that's all we are saying at the moment!"
She goes on to say, "Of course, the really big news this season is that entrants must enter as pairs. In the past we've seen a natural and continuous cross-over between individuals and their families, their friends. So this year, we decided to include that as part of the game. It will definitely make a dramatic addition to the series so we urge people to enter and experience what will be a uniquely different Big Brother Africa!"

The Biggest show to grace African televisions is back and will be kicking off in May 2012 according to M-Net Africa Managing Director Biola Alabi who had this to say; "while the basics are the same, every season is different from the last. Re-invention is crucial so I am very pleased to confirm that this year we're doing something that has never been done before in the history of Big Brother Africa!"
Season 7 of Big Brother Africa will have one winner after the 91 days. Last season had two winners Wendall from Zimbabwe and Karen from Nigeria. Uganda was represented by Sharon O and Ernest who gained more exposure from the show.
Sharon O has been travelling for a greater part of her time after the reality show courtesy of the fame that show brought to her most especially now that she was a finalist. On the other hand Ernest is working with a radio station in Western Uganda after a similar job in Kampala with Vision based FM radio station.
Watch this space on who the Ugandan representatives will be!
