The start of the new season of Grande Fratello VIP coincides with the launch of a new edition of #CasaChi, the social entertainment format developed by the magazine Chi, that every week brings opinion leaders and exceptional guest to the Instagram and Facebook channels of the brand with comments on the most successful reality show and the personalities of the moment.
An unmissable appointment which, following the huge success of 2020, with more than 100 special guests and more than 14 million video views on Instagram, this year too will feature VIPs, influencers and the competitors of the reality show, with the host and master of ceremonies, Alfonso Signorini, editor of Chi, and journalists from the title Azzurra Della Penna, Valerio Palmieri and Gabriele Parpiglia and deputy editor Massimo Borgnis the curator of the format. A team ready to transport readers and users to the very heart of the debate about Italy’s most spied on house with video shows, original and exclusive content, revelations, curiosities and unexpected twists.
WHAT’S NEW – The new season of CasaCHI #GFVIP 2021 Edition starts with a new face: Rosalinda Cannavò, for the first time as a talk show host.
“This is definitely my first experience as a host, as I have had never had a role like this and, I confess, I was terrified at the beginning. But the CasaChi team made me feel at ease and I’m melting, indeed, I’m really getting a taste for it and think, maybe one day, I could be a presenter! Last year I was inside the House, and this year I’m at CasaChi and have to be impartial: I would like to make judgments, but I try not to step too far out of my role. Certainly, having been in the game, I can identify nuances that others might miss so I can share them with our followers. Obviously, I have my favourites, but you will find this out in the course of the episodes, I’ll find a way to make you understand … “, said Rosalinda Cannavò.
However, the presence of the former contestant is not the only novelty. For this edition, the talk show schedule has been enhanced with even more dynamic and engaging formats and content: Chi Backstage, which shares with the public the previews, the background and the highlights of #GFVIP in the form of short videos on Instagram and TikTok; Chi è Chi #stories, with presentations of all the show’s contestants curated by the editorial staff, which in just one week reached 1 million views; and the exclusive #Copia il look (Copy the look), to replicate the outfits of both stars and commentators.
And then there is also space for guests from the world of show business and entertainment, such as the new commentators Adriana Volpe and Sonia Bruganelli, and unpublished content and interviews for this new edition of CasaChi, which in the first two weeks has already recorded a doubling of video views on its social media channels compared with 2020.
The episodes of CasaChi #GFVIP 2021 Edition will be broadcast from Tuesday to Friday, with daily appointments in video talk or live social formats, on Chi’s Instagram and Facebook channels – where Italy’s most widely read people magazine has a fan base of 850,000 users (Source: Shareablee, August 2021) – and, thanks to an exclusive agreement, is also available on the Mediaset Infinity platform.
A sponsorship format has been developed for advertisers which guarantees visibility in the social media content published by Chi and which includes media planning with guaranteed reach. In addition, it is also possible to develop ad hoc communication projects with the involvement of influencers, selected for a tone of voice that is in line with the brand.
