The ninth season of Big Brother Germany began on 8 December 2008 and ended on 6 July 2009 (211 Days). The 9th Season was hosted by Miriam Pielhau and Alida-Nadine Lauenstein. The theme for this season's house was Heaven and Hell. Andy, Beni, Cathy, Daniel, Geraldine, and Madeleine entered on launch night with 24 other housemates entering throughout the season. Big Brother Reloaded (since 12 January 2009) From Day 36 on, the concept of this series was changed due to bad ratings. There was one main living area, "Heaven", where all housemates lived. "Hell" was only used as living area for punished or nominated housemates. Because of the structural changes of the interior, alteration that were done on Day 34 and 35 forced the housemates to live in the 2 rooms used for matches. On Day 43, 3 former housemates re-entered the house, Sascha Sirtl (Season 5 winner), Andreas "Knubbel" Büttgenbach (Season 7 housemate (5th place in season 7)), and Marcel Schiefelbein (Season 8 runner-up). They were eligible to win the 250,000 € prize.
