The new season of Big Brother is quickly approaching, “But First” there are still some very important events to take care of as we prepare for a new cast to enter our favorite reality house on television.
Big Brother 16 will again have an early premiere for its summer season with a Wednesday, June 25, 2014 start date when we’ll see a new batch of HouseGuests enter the Thunderdome for 90+ days and compete to win the half-million dollars.
While the Feeds Early Bird sale kicked off in May the real party got started this week when CBS launched its preseason content on Wednesday. Fans now have access to subscriber-only video content and live chats to keep them entertained.
Add on top of that Media Day taking place today with members of the press and CBS affiliates (watch for the odd Xfinity HG) enter the newly redesigned Big Brother house and compete in a compressed round of games and events. We know Rachel Reilly has returned to play that mini-game this season (NOT as a BB16 HG), but we can’t wait to see who else joins her. Could we see Jon Pardy, winner of Big Brother Canada, show up as well? Scratch that. Jon will not be at Media Day.
The next big event after that will be cast interviews. And yes, I’m going back in to meet the BB16 cast and bring you our exclusive interviews again this season. Find out here on how you can help me with our interviews this year. Your support and input are very important on this one.
Here’s the quick rundown on what’s ahead of us as we approach the new season.
