Latinos in the U.S. will now join in on the fun with the Spanish version of "Big Brother" on Telemundo called "Gran Hermano." The network that airs "El Señor De Los Cielos" and "Señora Acero" will be traveling across the nation to find contestants to join the premiere season of this reality show. How does a quarter of a million dollars sound? It might not be the half a million dollars the winner of the CBS version wins, but $250,000 is not a bad deal. There will be 14 participants that will be complete strangers to each other entering the house and will have to battle it out for 13 weeks without contact from the exterior. Their every move will be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "Gran Hermano" will throw in obstacles to make the road bumpy and endure the challenges it is to be stuck in a house with people from different walks of life.

Telemundo and Endemol Shine Latino announced their alliance earlier this year to produce this show that has captivated the world. “We are pleased to add yet another truly global hit franchise to Telemundo’s reality lineup,” said Luis Silberwasser, president, Telemundo. “Our viewers are passionate and engaged with reality entertainment programming, and with "Gran Hermano" our partners at Endemol Shine North America have provided us with an addictive new series whose cast will fully represent the changing face of America." It is rumored that the production of the show will be done in México, using the house that Televisa is using for their version currently airing. Another rumor is that Lucero will be helming the show, following her hosting stint on "Yo Soy El Artista" last season.
