Gran Hermano Argentina is the Argentinian version of the Big Brother reality franchise. The TV show has been running since 2001 and is based on a group of strangers living together in the Big Brother house, isolated from the outside world, while having all their steps followed by cameras around-the-clock, implying they have no privacy for three months. The show has been a popular trending topic on social media with new memes being generated about each new season over the years.
The Gran Hermano Argentina show is based on the original Dutch television series Big Brother of the same name, created by John de Mol Jr and broadcast in the Netherlands in 1999. A clip of the show, reuploaded by The TeeVee Channel on YouTube, can be seen below.
According to Wikipedia, as of August 2021, "there have been 504 seasons of Big Brother in over 62 franchise countries and regions." The Argentinian version of the show started on March 10th, 2001, broadcasted by Telefe, and is currently airing its tenth season, which began on October 17th, 2022.
Two decades after the first broadcast of the reality show, many controversies have broken out in the media. Season 10 came to revive the rating of the show that has seen its audience migrate to other platforms over the course of several years. Season 10 of Gran Hermano Argentina is the latest installment of the reality show as of January 2023, which is receiving more engagement on social media than previous seasons. This is thanks to new rules, controversies and participant interactions, which led fans to share clips of the show and create new memes about it
Online, the show has established a passionate following that comments on the participants' daily activities on social media, especially Twitter.
