CBS is introducing the first-ever US edition of Big Brother Celebrity edition following their announcement of the new series near the end of Big Brother 19. Following 2016’s fall, online-only edition of Big Brother, Over The Top, we had hoped to see more of the franchise in the off-season, but honestly didn’t see this twist coming. Expect the… oh you already know.
There have been few details released so far from the team in charge of Celebrity Big Brother but we know the clock is ticking on getting it out the door, or rather in the front doors of the Big Brother house! Here’s everything we do know so far of the upcoming special series.
While every regular Big Brother summer season has Houseguests fighting to keep the prize money for themselves it doesn’t always work that way in celebrity editions of these sorts of competitions. There’s a chance the money could go to a favorite cause or maybe it really will go in the celeb’s pocket. When we asked Exec Producer Allison Grodner last season she would only say it was too soon to say.
Celebrity Big Brother Cast:
The cast has been revealed! Meet the 11 Houseguests of Celebrity Big Brother! We’ve got actors, actresses, singers, athletes, and much more. This looks pretty good so far!
Celebrity Big Brother House:
CBS released an early glimpse of the new house design which is set to the Los Angeles skyline along with a lot of glimmer and gold. Not bad, but not terribly different from what we’re used to seeing. Take a look through the CBB house photos. Read more about the Celebrity house reveal.
Our first look at the house backyard came from a video of the exterior showing a new structure covering the backyard. Looks like they’re going to be trying to keep things a little more comfortable for the celebs than BB9 had going for them.
Celebrity Big Brother Schedule:
The season won’t be a full length 90+ days either. Julie Chen gave us that insight when she revealed there was a pay cut on her role of hosting for this season since it’d be shorter than normal. Over in the UK the CBB (Celebrity Big Brother) editions run just a few weeks so they could pull the same move here, but I’d for sure expect it to last fewer than six weeks here.
Update: Schedule details have been announced by CBS, confirming much of our expectations. BBC will kick off on Feb 7th, just before the Olympics begin, and will run for the duration, ending after just two and a half weeks with a finale event on February 25th. There will be episodes four nights a week, including two-hour shows on Friday nights. Here is the full BB Celebrity Schedule:
