Its now official Africa's biggest telly show is around the corner and just like the previous one that featured 'All Stars', we are likely to experience a similar scenario of stars walking into Biggie's house come May 6, 2012.
Former girl group members were shortlisted from the last time we tried to establish what was going down. Mari was with her ex-boy friend Keith who was the only one with a six pack at least from the contestants that showed up at Sheraton that day.
Leila is on the shortlist as well though we are not so sure of the guy that she will be mingling with in the house given a chance.
Others who turned up for the auditions while the Big Brother team was around were: Natasha Sinayobye and Michael Kasaija, Daniella Omara and Hellen Lukoma, both from The Hostel Series and last but not least was Salvador Idringi and Jackie Klein.

The seventh version of Big Brother Africa that starts in 58 days will be dubbed Big Brother Stargame and the logo unveiled to the fans. American rapper Jermaine Lamar Col aka J. Cole will grace the opening show down in South Africa. J.Cole has collaborated with Miss Elliot, Drake, Beyonce and Trey Songz among others.
Auditions in Uganda ended last Sunday and we trust the team that Biggie sent here were able to fish out the best couple that will represent Uganda, again for another 91 days just like Sharon O did and also bring the money home.
Contestants this year will enter in pairs but that does not mean that they will also win as a pair. On getting to the house, they will be competing against each other..Talk of those whop enter the game as ex-lovers, husband and wife and so on, when it comes to the game, they will be competing agains each other.
The winner will walk away with USD300,000 which is approximately Shs733m at today's rate.

The Chilli gal came in walking with a swagg in her stilettos and sat outside the room waiting for her ex-boyfriend who we later identified as Keith. The two sat outside for a while as it looked like the guy was fresh from the gym where he had been working on those biceps that could blow the judges away.
An official from MNET walked by and told them that we want crazy people in there not serious ones. The Chilli gal looks all geared up and ready for the show more so having teamed up with her ex, she feels she can give the fans a show they have not seen before.
One of the gals who had a short skirt as her swagg for the dress code was asked if she could try to cross the line that Maureen of BBA2 crossed, she said no I cannot get to that extent, then the ex-chilli gal asked her why the hell she was even auditioning.
30 couples who comprised of dreadlocked fellas and bummy chics were vetted and another 60 couples will be vetted this weekend. The issue of pairing has affected the numbers of those who were to turn up for auditioning. In the past, you could see long queues, but this was not the case.
We will be bringing you more of these but for those who have not auditioned you have today and tomorrow at Sheraton hotel Kampala starting from 9am to 5pm.
