Just hours after a YouTube video surfaced of the abandoned Big Brother house, and its derelict state, vandals have set the property alight. 

The home, tucked away on the grounds of Gold Coast’s Dreamwork, reportedly caught on fire just after 2pm on Sunday.

Footage emerged showing black smoke billowing from the property, which has been vacant for five years. 

According to the Queensland Fire Service, the fire was deliberately lit.

The video of the reality show set going up in flames has gone viral, with social media users quick to point the finger at vandals. 

“It has been brought to our attention that vandals have burnt the Gold Coast Big Brother House down,” the man filming the fire wrote.

“This occurred over the last 24 hours. There is always one idiot who has to ruin it for everyone.”


The blaze occurred just hours after YouTuber ‘MuiTube’ uploaded a video of the abandoned set. 

MuiTube often posts video tours of abandoned and decaying buildings to his channel and this one is particularly shocking as we can compare it to the way that the mansion used to look during the Big Brother days.

While we were used to seeing contestants lounging about or diving into the lavish pool on the reality show, this has since turned into a dirty, green, swamp-looking mass of water. 

The peach coloured exterior walls which used to give off tropical, Pal Springs vibes have also been left in tatters with graffiti spray painted onto sections and the glass camera wells smashed.

Anyone who watched Big Brother would remember the rewards room, which was where contestants would be sent by Big Brother if they won a challenge. But the room that was once considered a prize now has wallpaper peeling back and a spa with green water.


The fifteen-minute-long video is almost creepy as the Aussie YouTuber takes us through the abandoned hallways and into the Diary Room and shower room, which are both filled with shattered glass.

In fact, it actually gives off the feeling of walking through a haunted house and you almost expect a ghost to emerge from the shadows at any moment.

MuiTube says in the video that it’s hard not to get lost in the house because it has so many nooks and crannies.
