Future commercial breakfast radio hosts celebrate! Your opportunity to start your career begins here. From the press release:

The Nine Network and Southern Star Entertainment announced on A Current Affair last night: “Big Brother is coming to find YOU.” Big Brother 2012, hosted by Sonia Kruger, will kick off its selection tour for new Housemates in Perth on Saturday, April 14.

The tour will hit all major capital cities, as well as Darwin, the Gold Coast and Hobart.
“We are looking for people who have warmth, intelligence, humour and no agenda,” says Big Brother 2012 executive producer, Alex Mavroidakis. “It’s the man on the street – the girl next door.”

“If you look at the most loved people on Big Brother – Chrissie Swan, Reggie, Fitzy, Sara-Marie – they all have one thing in common; they just put it all on the line and were embraced by the nation.”

Host Sonia Kruger adds: “Big Brother 2012 is a return to all that is good about the format – a mix of big event television, totally watchable Australians, engaging conversation and most importantly, humour.

“BB 2012 will focus on what made the show most successful – people we simply love to watch.”
“The ‘Housemate Hunt’ is a vital part of our process and will allow you to come to us and let us know why you would make the perfect Housemate,” adds executive producer, Alex Mavroidakis.

“A final word of advice: Do not try to second guess what we are looking for. The truth is; there is no ‘Big Brother type’. Be yourself, be engaging and you might just win us – and Australia – over.”

The new Big Brother 2012 “eye” logo was also revealed on A Current Affair last night.
