CBS Delays Big Brother 18 Cast Reveal Following Orlando Tragedy

Fans were preparing to meet the Big Brother 18 cast on Monday but late Sunday night CBS made a surprising announcement that the cast reveal would not be taking place on Monday. Later the next morning more details were given to support and explain their decision.

CBS announced they would be moving the cast reveal to Tuesday with the Live Feed streaming interview videos airing that afternoon instead of Monday morning, pushing the release out little over one extra day from the original plan.

While the first statement from CBS, shared on Twitter, only mentioned the delay there were more details this morning explaining their decision.

On Monday morning, via their Facebook page, the explanation had been expanded to include the Orlando shooting as their reason to move the Big Brother cast reveal to a later day.

We don’t know if the interviews are still being recorded on Monday and shared on Tuesday or if the Live Feed interviews will still be streamed as they happen.
