We’ve got the great new promo commercial below along with all the highlights of the scenes inside it including the one that really hits home for me on the launch of every new season for Big Brother.

I love the video and its very fun vibe, even if its styling does seem familiar, which takes us back to BB16 as we watch Joey, Amber, and Cody heading through the front door.

Our next familiar faces are Shelli and Clay with one of their bedridden makeouts along with the reminder for future HGs that there are cameras & microphones everywhere in there! Speaking of which, that makes them our little “rats in a cage” as we’re welcomed to “tap on the glass” to a clip of ol’ Zach jumping around in the Have-Not room.

Ahh, but my favorite clip from a past season is here with the full roster of Big Brother Houseguests gathering that first full night with everyone raising a glass to toast their new season. That right there makes peaks my excitement for Big Brother 18 as we countdown to the June 22nd premiere!
