The ‘Big Brother’ brand is irretrievably present both for the audience of ‘Secret Story’ and for Telecinco’s own presenters and collaborators. Jordi González and María Jesús Ruiz they have unintentionally named the missing program with identical characteristics as that of the house of secrets.
After what was denounced and what happened with Carlota Prado in the last edition of ‘Big Brother’, information that was released exclusively by El Confi TV, Mediaset Spain cannot exploit this format until there is a final judgment in the courts. That controversial fact led to an advertising boycott of the Zeppelin TV show to the point of disappearing completely of Telecinco’s programming.
“They tell me to tell you that this program is not ‘GH’, it is’ The house of secrets”
And that has given rise to ‘Secret Story: the house of secrets’ to replace the successful ‘reality’ from the Fuencarral chain. A change of tune, graphics, logo, name and even mechanics, although it continues to be produced with the same equipment and in the same house in Guadalix de la Sierra.
To avoid further legal disputes have wanted to avoid from the beginning any reference to the extinct program that Mercedes Milá presented for years varying terms. Now they call the confessional a cube; The Super is called the lady of the house; and they have even modified the mythical phrase of the expulsion ceremony that we all remember (‘the audience has decided that they must leave the house …’).
However, Jordi González has had a slip during the explanation of one of the videos. “One of the Gemeliers entered the confessional … In the cube, to request the disciplinary expulsion of Adara”, verbalized the presenter, although quickly rectifying his mistake by naming the famous room of the house as it was called in ‘GH’.
The next slip came minutes later starring María Jesús Ruiz. “These people who think they are in a spa? They are in the house of ‘Big Brother’!”shouted the winner of ‘GH Duo’ without realizing that she had just named the taboo brand for Telecinco. Something that he repeated shortly after with the same words.
A triple oversight that Jordi had to clarify by emphasizing the official nomenclature, ‘Secret Story: the house of secrets’ and not ‘Big Brother’: “They tell me to tell you that this program is not ‘GH’, it is’ The house of secrets”.
