Big Brother México

Big Brother México

"Big Brother México" is a reality television series based on the international "Big Brother" format produced in the Netherlands by Endemol. "Big Brother México" was launched by Televisa in 2002. Before its debut, the idea of being watched twenty-four hours a day by a camera was shocking to some in Mexican society. The series was successful, and it was followed by a special edition called "Big Brother VIP" with Mexican celebrities from show business and even politics. [ [ "Big Brother, el evento televisivo que cambió la forma de ver la televisión en México" ("Big Brother, the television event changes the form of TV in Mexico" (in Spanish)] ]

Congressman Jorge Kahwagi, minority whip of the Mexican Green Party in the Chamber of Deputees (equivalent of the U.S. House of Representatives) of Mexico's Congress, shocked and angered many people in Mexico when he asked to be excused from his post in Congress to be sequestered for months inside the Big Brother House. Critics among colleagues and the general public accused him of dereliction of duty, discrediting his office, and seeking personal gain.

During the show, late-night variety-show host, comedian, and producer Adal Ramones, also from Televisa, made a send-up of Big Brother which he called "El Gran Carnal" or "Big Bro" in Mexican slang. []

Big Brother VIP3-1 (2004)


There are no future plans for an additional season of Big Brother México, as Televisa has opted to license other Endemol reality programs such as Vas o no Vas (the Mexican version of the hit show, Deal or No Deal) and Bailando por un Sueño.

Rumors have been circulating throughout December 2007 that a 4th season of the program may launch in the first quarter of 2008. As of March 2008, no show had started or been planned.
