All the money from SMS votes were donated to charity, and there was no cash prize for the winner. Also, this season was longer than the previous two. It lasted for 56 days (8 weeks), making it the longest VIP Brother season in Bulgaria so far.

ProductionEdit

BroadcastEdit

The show was aired on Nova Television and Diema 2.

The new charity formatEdit

Unlike the previous two seasons, VIP Brother 3 featured 17 celebrity Housemates, who were not competing for a cash prize, but for charity causes. Each one of the 8 weeks was dedicated to a different cause, making the causes eight. During their stay in the House the Housemates had special tasks. Sometimes they were also gathering money outside the House. 13 Housemates entered the House on Day 1 and 4 more on Day 2.

The houseEdit

VIP Brother 3 was shot in the House in Novi khan, where the Housemates from Big Brother 4 lived. However, it was entirely redecorated. As in the previous two seasons, there were some similarities with Celebrity Big Brother UK – there were no cameras in the bathrooms and there was a big ashtray in the garden. For the first time, there was a washing machine in the House.

Big Brother's Big MouthEdit

The companion talk show Big Brother's Big Mouth returned during VIP Brother 3, and was hosted by the pop-folk singer Kamelia.[1] The concept of the show this season was different. There were not "evil tongues". Kamelia was often entering the House, asking the Housemates different questions. The show was aired three times a week – on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays. Previously the show was aired during Big Brother 3 and was hosted by Dim Dukov, contestant in VIP Brother 1.

HousematesEdit

The new VIP-Housemates were 17. All of them were competing for charity causes during their stay in the House. They were collecting money through the tasks given to them by Big Brother. A new guest celebrity Housemate was entering the House every week. He/she stayed in the House for one week, which made the celebrity Housemates in this season 25 in total.

13 Housemates entered the House on Day 1. They were joined by 4 other Housemates on Day 2.

All the money from viewers' SMS votes were given for the week's charity cause.
