Big Brother 18 House Revealed: International Destination & Travel Theme

After getting a teaser yesterday the Big Brother 18 house theme and first look pics are out in the wild after ET took its tour yesterday of the BB18 destination.

The theme for Big Brother 18’s house has international locations along with a travel theme plus one very interesting choice for the bathroom that left me scratching my head.

So far these details come from ET’s tour video and we might be waiting on the official CBS photos of the new Big Brother house, but so far it looks gorgeous overall and should be great fun as our summer setting of BB18!

When we saw Kevin Frazier entering the house through double doors I was trying to figure out where that house had double doors. Well, it didn’t before but now it does as the main entrance is twice as big for this season, “but first” there’s more to see.

The overarching theme has air travel with plane featured wall paper for the kitchen and an airport for the second tier setting of the space. The full size dining table even features a compass on its lazy Susan center tray. The island looks pretty standard with a few seats there and along the breakfast bar.

For the bedrooms we’ve got Japanese anime filling the main open bedroom which uses a phone booth to enter a British themed side bedroom. No peek of the Have-Not room, but that usually starts out as a regular bedroom before being converted over in the first week. Upstairs we’ve got a Hawaiian themed HoH bedroom with an awesome fish tank over the large bed. Guess that’ll be our fish cam source at times for the Feeds.

Outside in the backyard there’s a mountain and forest wall art along with the new turf and freshly installed pool that brings the swimming and hot tub together in one large spot. Looks great, but I’ll miss those times where HGs circled the spa for late night chats.

That leaves the beach themed bathroom which appears to have the floor covered in sand. Lots of sand. Which is great because who doesn’t want to step out of the shower and get sand stuck to them and then carried everywhere through the house? Perfect, right? Blerg. Any guesses on how long before that gets vacuumed out of there?

And yeah, it’s a bit of an unfortunate overlap with the whole international Big Brother HGs theme that BBCAN4 just ran this past season, but I think that’s just a coincidence and won’t play in to the season’s twists. These house designs are likely decided well before the season’s plan is finalized.

  1. This is awesome Matt, thank you. A “brand new game” with a “whole new concept” sounds sooo exciting, I can’t wait!!!

  2. Sand? Really? Huh. The way the cast usually keeps the house clean (NOT-lol) it should be really interesting. :) Oh PLEEEEZE, lets go back to the tradition of giving each house guest a key, instead of using the screens when nominating. Please? The pool/hot tub combo does look slick—but I’m with you, Matthew…I’ll miss those late night spa chats, too. Sand. Huh.

    • I can see a house guest placing a beach chair in there or some wallowing in it like they’re at the beach. Then I’ll be like, “what were they thinking?” hahaha

    • If you’ve ever been in the vacinity of a litter box, it tends to get everywhere. Someone will pee in it, or puke. Or just put it everyone’s bed. This idea will go all sorts of wrong. Or right?

      Anyone placing bets on if or when we will hear “get the sand out of your vagina”. I never rule anything out on this show. Welcome back BB! You have been sorely missed my summer friend!ĺ

      • Yes sand in everyone’s vagina probably during the traditional streak should be entertaining (?) Should be fun or just weird or both!

  3. Need to see more to make a proper judgement but the revamped pool and the manga/anime-themed bedroom look really nice.

    • Frankie is going to be a mentor this season isn’t he? That could get demented fast.

  4. Luv the theme ~~ and the Eiffel Tower on top of the fridge. So the 10 mock house guests are/come from around the world ~~ COOL!

  5. The house always looks so much nicer in the reveals, than they do on the show/feeds. But hopefully this season they have some houseguests with a pulse. And no all stars.

  6. Sand in the bathroom..I don’t think that will be around too long…the HOH room is beautiful. I have been watching the BB marathon..reminds me of seasons past when there were food and luxury comps, DPOV, coup d’ tat..please 2 HG’s and no BOB..please!!! Bring back the oldies but goodies!

  7. Sand in the bathroom? The house is barely kept clean as it is! And the author said something about the lazy Susan, does that mean it’s back? I hope so, the key turn with pictures appearing is boring.
