The always fun Media Day coverage for Big Brother 16 has now been released and with it comes our first look at the BB16 backyard, Diary Room, and new dual screen Memory Wall in action.
The press is back this season with representatives from People magazine, ET, CBS affiliates, and yep, even Xfinity. Yeah, I don’t know on that last one, but they’ve got someone each year recently. The day is a big test run for production as well as a chance for them to get big outlets excited for the premiere (and then they promptly disappear again until the end of the season).
This season Rachel Reilly was back but this time she wasn’t the only Big Brother alumni to do so. She was joined by appearances by Mike Boogie and Jessie Godderz because no season is complete without Jessie.
In the footage shared by CBS through People mag’s Patrick Gomez we get to see the short-term players/Houseguests enter the house, do their champagne cheer, and then get right to the action. Boogie is there to host the HoH competition which is a “majority rules” style game. You won’t see this one show up in the real game anymore because of how easily an alliance can plan to all answer “A” no matter the question.
We get to see the new Memory Wall in action. Then after the Nomination Ceremony, where they use the same key block as we’ve seen in recent seasons, HGs were greeted by Jessie who hosts the Veto competition. It’s the “build a Veto” comp we saw with HGs going “back in time”, but it still looks like fun.
When the HGs go inside the Diary Room to vote we get a look at the new DR. Bright green in a nature-ish style fitting of this season’s “treehouse” theme. What do you think of the new look? Seems like we’ve had blue in there for so long that it’s nice for a change.
Watch the full thirty-minute video below and check out the picture gallery to see what all went down. Notice the beautiful and clear images? That’s because the house is in High Definition this year! Finally! The Live Feeds are going to look gorgeous this season. Can’t wait to see it all in just a few more days. Big Brother 16 premieres on CBS this Wednesday at 8PM ET/PT.
