A Fazenda 7

A Fazenda 7 was the seventh season of the Brazilian reality television series A Fazenda, which premiered September 14, 2014 on a special time at 10 p.m./9 p.m. (BRT/AMT) on the Record television network. The season finale was aired December 10, 2014 in a total of 90 days.

Contents

This season is part of a millionaire contract signed in 2011 between Strix Television and Rede Record which guaranteed the show's rights until 2019. The seventh season was officially confirmed by Britto Junior on September 29, 2013, during the two-hour season finale of A Fazenda 6.

Britto Junior reprise his hosting stints for the show. Gianne Albertoni also returnes as the show's social media correspondent, being also joined by actress Carla Diaz on A Fazenda Online.

The grand prize for the winner is R$2 million without tax allowances, with a brand new car offered to the runner up.

Cast

Pre-production started early to mid-February 2014. Casting was done simultaneously with casting for Aprendiz Celebridades, the tenth season of O Aprendiz, the Brazilian version of The Apprentice, that was being adapted to the Celebrity Apprentice format at the time. The season featured eighteen new celebrities.

The camp

A half day prior to the game officially starting, the cast was led to believe that they would enter directly into the Farm. They were, however, placed at an isolated camp miles away from the actual Farm. At the camp, contestants must create their own society, built their own shelter and figure out how to survive against the elements, while given minimal resources.

After nightfall, the contestants took part of a Bonfire ceremony, where each one should speak and then symbolically burn what they want to leave behind.

The twins

For the first time ever in a Brazilian reality show, two contestants (similar twins Pepê and Neném) will play the game as a single competitor.

Contestants

Key power

Since season 5, contestants compete to win the Key Power each week. The Key Power holder is the only contestant who can open the mystery box located at the Farm. However, opening the box will unleash either a good consequence or a bad consequence at the nomination process.

Since season 6, only three pre-selected contestants (one from each team) are allowed to compete each round. However, this season, one of the three is banned from competing by the current Farmer of the Week, leaving only two players at the challenge. The winner becomes the Key Power holder for the week, while the loser is sent to the barn with his whole team (minus the current Farmer if he/she is part of that team) until the vote. The Key Holder's choice is marked in bold.

In week 11, only the team with more members at this point of the game (Rabbit) competed for the Special Key Power and the other contestants were sent to the Barn.

Results

Instant choice

The Instant Choice was introduced during the first live nominations show of the season as an added interactive feature. During the designated/announced five-minute voting window, Twitter users (with public accounts only) may vote to select a contestant to receive a special opportunity not available to others (which may or may not influence directly in the game) by tweeting the option's keyword along with the show's designated hashtag.
