After the events of the double eviction, Julie gave us one of the most unexpected announcements that we’ve received in years! Celebrity Big Brother is coming this winter!
Celebrity Big Brother has been on in the United Kingdom for as many years as the normal Big Brother has in the US, but it’s finally coming to the United States for the first time this winter! There will still be a Big Brother 20 next summer, but we’ll be getting a whole new season of Celebrity Big Brother in the meantime!
The Celebrity Big Brother will not be an All Access exclusive like Big Brother Over The Top was, which means that everyone at home will be able to watch it like the normal season. However, there will be live feeds, meaning that all of us feedsters will be able to watch the celebrities in the house 24/7 like we do doing normal seasons!
We aren’t going to know when exactly the premiere is or which celebrities would be casted, but Julie Chen gave us a pretty solid answer when she said that the people who cast Dancing With The Stars does a good job on choosing which stars are willing to join their show. Below you can read the entire press release from CBS:
The special event—which is in addition to BB’s upcoming milestone 20th season in Summer 2018—will feature Julie Chen as host, multiple episodes per week during a concentrated run, the series’ signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions, and Live Evictions.
Does that mean more 24/7 Live Feeds coverage through CBS All Access? You betcha.
Looks like Feeders won’t have to wait until next June to get their fill of behind-the-scenes shenanigans with the Houseguests!
“Big Brother has been dominating pop culture throughout its 19 seasons, and it is exciting to grow the franchise with the first-ever celebrity edition in the U.S.,” said executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan.
“Celebrities will be under the watchful eye of the Big Brother cameras, facing the classic game elements, and of course new twists in this special winter event.”
Stay tuned for additional details regarding scheduling, casting, and when you can expect the show to premiere!
We’ll be sure to keep you all posted whenever we find out more about this new season of Big Brother, including casting news and the premiere date when it is finally set! We’re going to be covering this new season of Big Brother like any other, so we hope that you’ll all stick around and join us!
