Big Brother Over The Top only had about four days to redesign the house after the end of BB18 so there’s really only so much we could expect for the new BBOTT house designs. Keep your expectations low here and you might not be let down.

Big Brother Over The Top - House design & Have-Not room

From the house tour pics shared at E! the most rework appears to have gone in to the Have-Not room, which is now a Haunted House theme with maybe three net beds, and the lounge which is now also their exercise room, perhaps with the cooler weather coming in. There’s some wallpaper changes as well and a little paint, but that’s going to be about it for the new season.

The sweeping arches in the living room are now purple and the Destination sign is gone, but the associated phone booth is still there on the upper level. The kitchen has a new backdrop with the planes wallpaper covered over and the various destination signs have all been removed. Allegedly the Tokyo bedroom was worked over as well, but that didn’t show up in the gallery yet.

As for things staying the same, the London bedroom doesn’t appear to have changed, at least not by the time these photos were taken. The HoH room looks like the same and the waterfront themed bathroom looks just as it did last week. I won’t be surprised if the backyard isn’t any different either which is fine by me as I liked the forest setting there.

Grodner gave E! a short blurb on the theme which is apparently a “sophisticated city hotel.” Sophisticated, you say? Allow me to get my monocle & top hat.

“In just four days the art department has been able to transform the main living areas from a summer vacation theme into a sophisticated city hotel with colors and decor ready for fun and scheming this fall,” executive producer Allison Grodner tells us. “I think the brand new fitness room inspired lounge will be a welcome surprise for the houseguests with the changing autumn weather.”

Ahh, also in the kitchen and dining area we can see 13 place settings at the table, so maybe that’s confirming we won’t see both Jason and Jozea move in to balance out the cast number and the women vs men ratio.

Take a look through the BBOTT house photos and see what’s there so far. Then we’ll get a better look tonight during the season premiere along with the launch of the Live Feeds. It all starts tonight at 10PM ET (7PM PT) so be sure to sign-up for the Free Trial & be ready to watch.

Update: Few more photos added including the backyard which does appear to have the same backdrop.
