Big Daddy is a popular online game show franchise created and hosted by Lachie Myall
How it Works Edit
Big Daddy is a Big Brother game hosted exclusively through Messenger and Kik.
It is based upon the television show Big Brother US/Canada and follows a similar format.The game follows a number of contestants, known as sack mates, compete against each other and battle it out for power in an attempt to evict each other until only one remains.
Season 1 was loosely based after BBUK with multiple nominees, late addition cast mates, formal warnings, and various twists. With the BB US/Canada format being introduced from season 2 onward.
Each day (minus Fridays and Saturdays) one of the sackmates is evicted by a house vote, once there is only two sack mates left all the evicted contestants form the jury and vote for the winner. Each season varies in length with season 17 lasting the longest with 31 full days, seasons 3,7,8,9,10 & 1,12,13,14,16,18 & 19 are the shortest all lasting 1 day.
The idea for the show came when winners Lachie Myall and Benjamin Jackson were reminiscing about their old group chats and the conversations that used to happen in them. Lachie found an old group chat where he kept adding and deleting loads of people randomly and picking who stayed, he said how it was like a game and how he wished there was something like it they could all play. Benj then suggested making a group chat and adding all of their friends before evicting them, after talking a little more they decided to base it off Big Brother and have everyone evict each other. Lachie became the host as he knew the show the best and could pull ideas from it. Season 1 started that same night and was initially called 'Don't Shoot The Messenger' but after a brief discussion Nadia suggested calling it Big Daddy. Season 1 was loosely based after BBUK with multiple nominees, late addition cast mates, formal warnings, and various twists. Whereas other seasons have been more based off BBUS and BBCAN, with Big daddy day 1 & 2 being heavily inspired by Rupaul's Drag Race.
