The launch of “Big Brother 2022” immediately received criticism from the public. In particular, Big Brother’s new voice could count on a bit of praise. “Unclear,” it sounds to viewers. According to the makers, this is a technical malfunction and a solution is being worked on.
New home, new candidates. But in particular, Big Brother’s new voice came to prominence to fans of the reality show, Monday night during the launch of Play4. First of all, it no longer looks Flemish, but Dutch. Most importantly, the distorted voice was barely audible. And that without translation, while this was the case with both the Belgian and Dutch candidates.
Audio makers admit audio failures during the first broadcast. “Due to technical issues, Big Brother’s voice was not very well articulated,” production company SBS said. “We are doing our best to resolve these issues as quickly as possible. Until then, the audio will be translated in both Flanders and the Netherlands.”
But the damage has been done to many viewers. On social media, they are vomiting and demanding that last year’s voice be brought back on the plane. It belonged to Limburg voice actor Jeroen Meder. Speak to residents in a clean accent – and above all: without distorting the computer – like Big Brother. He was replaced this year by a Dutchman who is still unknown.
“It is important that Big Brother is an obscure entity for the residents of the house,” SBS said. “It makes the rules, and the more mystery surrounding it, the more powerful and powerful it is. Since the voice of last season is now known, we chose to look for a new one.” So its makers don’t think of an alternative.(dvg)
