Today has been an overload of Big Brother 16 spoilers and reveals (check out the first House pics here) but it doesn’t seem ready to give us a rest just yet either! CBS has now released even more details on the upcoming season and what we can look forward to seeing.
Big Brother will launch in grand fashion this season with a “Two Night Move-In Event” starting Wednesday, June 25, 2014 and continuing Thursday night. That alone would have been fun news, but now we get even more action with it.
Before the season premiere Jeff Schroeder will be hosting a pre-premiere event called “Big Brother Live Kickoff” starting at 7PM ET that night. No word yet if it’ll be available to everyone or only Live Feeds subscribers as much of their preseason content has been so far.
After the Thursday night second premiere episode the Feeds will go live starting right after the West coast broadcast concludes. That means set your alarms for 1AM ET (6/27) and 10PM PT (6/26) to catch your first glimpse of the HGs coming at you live in High Definition! Another new season first.
Coinciding with the launch of the Feeds we’ll get more Jeff action as he hosts “Big Brother All-Nighter” which will offer up live Tweeting of the first 16 hours from the action we’re watching online. Of course I’ll be live tweeting the entire season, so don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (and on Facebook!) to find out what’s going on inside the house as it happens.
If you haven’t signed up for the Big Brother Feeds yet then be sure to do that now so you can get the cheaper pre-order pricing with the Early Bird sale. Once the premiere arrives the price goes up and you’ll pay more for the same thing available right now. Those Feeds are what let us watch inside the house with an uncensored (no bleeping like on BBAD) view of what’s really going on with the game rather than CBS’s edited version which often tells a much different, manipulated story.
Once the season gets rolling CBS will offer up a weekly Friday afternoon live show with host Jeff (of course). Episodes will air online at 12PM PT (3PM ET) and will give fans a chance to submit questions for Jeff’s guests which will include evicted HouseGuests at least until Jury sequester begins.
Inside the house there will be some fun new and returning aspects of the game. The lounge’s Photo Booth will be back and now Big Brother fans can submit their own photos tagged #BBSelfie for a chance to be selected “to go into the Big Brother House Photo Booth each week.” I don’t know if “go into” means the HGs will see your images or if that applies to the online gallery CBS posts on their website each week.
New this year for the Head of Household blogs will be video content. Last season we saw some struggles with writing the HoH blogs and this could help with that issue. HoHs get to include video content with their weekly write-ups and have it all shared on CBS’s website. That should be fun!
So much news already for Big Brother 16 so I hope you keep checking back in every day as we prepare for the new season and work to make sure you’re updated on everything you need to know. Thanks for joining me again this season here at Big Brother Network!
