Big Brother appears to be stretching itself out over the CBS schedule again next week with an upcoming bonus Friday episode on the network’s schedule for August 18th at 8/7c.
Big Brother 19 has been cleaning up this summer in the ratings so it’s no surprise that CBS may be giving it more opportunities to shine, but as for what’s happen, we don’t know! It appears to be a mystery episode waiting for us next Friday.
You’ll remember the last time they did a Friday show this summer was the big ol’ Battle Back where Cody returned to the game just two and a half weeks ago. Since then only one HG has been evicted, Ramses, and we know he’s out in the wild. So could there be another Battle Back? Ehh, maybe, but that seems pretty quick to be happening again.
With just one evictee released in to the wild since the last special Friday episode of Big Brother 19 we’d only have at most 3 if they sequester this week’s evictee and there’s a Double Eviction next week. If this week’s evictee is released and if there’s no DE next week then we’d only have 1 Juror come the 18th.
We have not heard anything about a DE yet, but we’d usually hear about those one week in advance so we’ll have to listen out for details from Julie. We’ll probably also hear more about the August 18th show on this Thursday’s episode.

So what could it be? That same week of August last year delivered the Friday episode with the carnival events and Ziggy Marley’s backyard concert. They filmed the episode earlier in the week and then had to work around that week’s evicted HG to make it look like it happened after the eviction. I’ll never understand why Big Brother feels the need to lie to its audience like that.
That episode, featuring the return of Jessie as well, was a big ol’ clip show with some lame set up moments like the kissing booth between James and Natalie. If you’re glad they’re still together, then be sure not to Google the latest on them.
So it could just be a clip show but I’d hope for something more exciting. There won’t be very many evicted HGs available for any sort of competition events but maybe Big Brother has a new trick up its sleeve.
What do you think could be happening with a possible special episode next Friday the 18th? More competitions? Clip show? Or maybe just a fluke and it turns out to be nothing at all? Share your thoughts below and we’ll watch out for more details from CBS to share.
