In a video he shared online, he said "Since big brother announced their commencement of season 6 audition, alot of you who follow me as a director and a producer have reached out to me and said 'help us with the audition process'. First things first is that you need to understand that you don't need to know anybody to be able to get into big brother. The only thing you need to know and to understand is the secret behind the auditioning."
He went on to explain the secret, and different stages involved in the process. His words "There are usually three stages in auditioning for Big Brother and several other reality TV shows. The first stage, the entry stage, like the one they've made announcement and said send in your entry, send in your short video, telling us why you should be selected to get into Big Brother."
"The second stage is the selection process, whereby the directors and the producers, you know, the behind the scene guys will look at all these hundreds of thousands of entries, and judge you according to the show criteria, and decide if you qualify to get into the show, which will now lead us to the next stage which is now the qualifying/physical audition stage. At this point, from the entry, maybe they saw your video, and you did your video nicely, you did it exactly the way they want, they now invite you for the physical audition. And if you go for the physical audition, you qualify, it's as easy as that, you see yourself in the Big Brother House."
He further advised against making payments of any sort to people who claim they can help you get into the house. According to him, "You don't need to give anybody your money because he said 'I'm gonna give you a spot'. No, because you need to understand that no single one person is in charge of the whole entire process. it's usually a group of people who you could now call the judges, and each of them will always validate and cross-check whatever the other person is doing, so no one single person has the final say over the entire process"
He finally asked that those who need help with the process should reach out to him, as he would love to be a part of their success story.
