CBS kicks off the Celebrity Big Brother season tonight at 8/7c on CBS & CBS All Access with a one-hour premiere as our eleven celeb Houseguests move into the house and get this special season underway!
Julie Chen is there to greet the Houseguests before sending them on inside with another two-part arrival of the groups. First up we’ve got Metta World Peace, Ariadna Guiterrez, Ross Mathews, Brandi Glanville, and Mark McGrath. They’ll head inside first, find their beds, and await the next batch. That second group offers up Omarosa, Marissa Jaret Winokur, James Maslow, Keshia Knight Pulliam, and Shannon Elizabeth. On in they go and the season is off to a start.

We can’t go very far without the first Head of Household of the season and what’s a game of Big Brother if it doesn’t start with HGs hanging on to something to see who wants HoH the most. Yep, here we go!
But first! There’s a twist. One HG gets to win safety. They have to pick a number then Julie will open the envelope. The safety-award goes to… Omarosa. She’s safe this week but also can’t play in this comp.
HGs are hanging on strong when suddenly Paul, yes Paul Abrahamian, shows up and starts singing a song. Don’t worry, it’s just a cameo. Then he brings out Rachel Reilly who starts singing to Jodi and then we also see “Jody.” Okay, that’s kinda funny.

Marissa was the first to fall and soon they’re dropping like flies. We’re eventually down to James and Shannon… Shannon wins HoH! But wait, there’s more.
Julie sends all the HGs back inside to pick up “celebrity gift bags.” Julie reveals there’s a twist inside set to change up that HoH role… It’s the “recast” twist that lets the holder replace the HoH with someone else.
We don’t get to find out just yet who gets what, but you can check our spoilers page to see what we have heard ended up happening with that and who is the new “recast” HoH.

Hey there. Got a new hard drive and lost all of them, but I’ll start making s**t up. We got some whack celebrity here…we’ll see,,lol
Drats, but I’m looking forward to what you come up with!
That’s funny..I sent K the twerking turkey..thanks giving, I believe. she loves it.
I was hoping she was going to show up tonight. Tell her hi if you talk to her! :)
Allright let’s get this show on the road. Should be good fun to watch. If not, what the heck, it’s only 3 weeks.
Hey Captain. I thought there would be more people watching, guess not.
Even Orwell has his checkmark, what are you waiting for ?
Alright, it’s on.
Hey. I was waiting for you..this the thread man?
Hey all! Glad to be back.
Hey Brenda! :)
How ya doin?
Good, how are you?
Anything for a dollar
Lol, I know. Well, I guess at least Brandi is denying the obvious!
I want anyone to win except Dumbarosa or Skanksville.
Oh I agree. Can’t stand dumbarosa.
Hey DeDee Cheryl here. I’m with you on the dumbarosa, I call her iiikkkcc or yuck…lol…
I think Brandi is an ok cast in this..she’s crazy…she likes to drink..so
And she is getting her meds 😸
OK that was funny Ross, I have the skin of a newborn lol
That Mark..is he from E. T.? host or something?
ok. Was he on Apprentice?
Sugar Ray. The band.
lol why you laughing?
Just struck me as funny, that’s all! :)
I was laughing..
He was on the Apprentice (Brandi, Omarosa, Keisha and Mark were on the Apprentice). He was also on wife swap. I remember he was a helicopter dad and the new mom made him wear a helicopter hat and sit on the stairs,
I thought so.
One of the previous pages is meet the HouseGuest’s with a short bio included 😸
Oh yeah..I forgot. I’m catching up..I’ll do my reading ..later.
You never know when there will be a pop quiz, just trying to be helpful !
Singer from quite awhile ago, though I guess he’s still at it.
Good music lasts forever 😸😸😸😸😸😸😸😸😸😸😸😸
He did work on one of those Hollywood shows as well..
I thought so.
Hello BB family…I’ve missed these addictive blogs and big personalities. HAPPY CBB DAY 🎉
Back at ya! 😁🎆
That guy I know Chuck/UFC..Hall of famer. he’s a bad a*s
Think Chuck looks good to go far, sort of a stabilizing influence on the rest of the house
He sounded conservative(strategically) we’ll see. Not in the octagon..He’s an animal
Bet he doesn’t hold a gruge over a bloody nose 😸
Is this the viewing post?
thanks cutie, slide in my dms anytime lol
Idk this chubby lady and this Maslow fellow. Like I’ve never heard of them and I am into celebrity stuff.
The hell is she wearing? I hope they are all mean to her lol
Is Omarosa attending the prom?
She thinks she’s at the Oscars and she’s all that matters. She did that on purpose, total power play. Made her look like fool.
She is just waiting for her coronation to begin .
I totally agree. She thought she looked powerful. NOT!
Glad to see Assorama . I hope she brings it. lol..then gets crucified in the end. I honestly want her there. ha!
I certainly can see now why she is there. They wanted it that way.
oh yeah! she a brand, a villain brand. don’t forget a WH staffer. lol
Did you know she was working for VP Al Gore before the Apprentice ?
she supported a lot of Dems.
She goes where the power is.
Power & Money goes together. That’s a given.
Does two weeks look good on a resume ?
Why not..This is a short version. She’ll be godzilla by F5
Hoe code? mmm, okay. That alliance is not going to last.
OMG Shannon just messed up. Never give Assorama any info that you knew each other. That will come back to haunt her once the guys are gone.
To be fair, James is 27. He would have been 14 when the Apprentice was on.
Brandi has hit the ground running, guess all the hype is not just hype! Don’t see me sorry to see her go .
And… hating Brandi, lol! Seriously, at least be polite with someone you just met! (Unless he did something off camera that we don’t know about?)
Like looked Cross-eyed ?
My effing live stream freezed up..what’s going on?
Omarosa got immunity this week and isnt competing in the HOH, which just started
They are hanging on to giant elevated Oscar statues
Interesting first twist to the HOH comp…
Wow, James with what looks like a great strategy for this comp. Wonder what happened?
Hilarious , Paul and Rachel !!!!
They had to find a way to include Paul. Gag me with a spoon 🤢
And Jody … where is the bucket ?
They were on the screen for 2 seconds. Paul got several segments.
I know. Just been funny. I find them “not too bad” on TAR.
I actually don’t mind them there.
They get a good edit I guess. They are playing well, even won week 2.
Hey y’all Fri night is 2 hrs. Thu night 1 he.
PAULLLL WTF I CANTTTTT HAHAHAHAHAHA,
He doesnt sound bad though
And Rachel: FLOATERS GET A LIFE VEST
Rachel, fine. But Paul – UGH!!! Even when he’s not in the season, he can’t stay away from the house!!!
Mark looks like a vampire.
He does sort of look like an actor on IZombie
Who’s still hanging?
James and Shannon
I got it back. Brandi is still up?
the chubby lady and meta world peace are off an sugar ray
We got Keshia, James, Shannon and Brandi
Did you like the singing part?
I sing better, but singing is always better than yelling !
OK in case there was any doubt about Brandi !
Swoosh a dribble, oh my haha
This comp isn’t fair to the two sports guys, unfortunately. They’re too heavy set – all those muscles.
And never come back?
So Keisha’s NOT HoH…
She won the star prize !
Well, of course we already knew that. Shannon is HoH.
Omarosa’s smart. She’s literally trying to convince him how NOT to play the game, lol!
And how did they NOT throw up?!
with the me too theme a woman will win for sure I am sorry but to my perception this all thing feels staged I really hope I am wrong but dear God Omarosa???? Really?
Kind of why I want a guy to win the season. Not for nothing, the dirtbags of the world deserve what’s coming to them, but it’s turning into a witch hunt. The longer it goes on, the more likely innocents will be hurt by it.
Sigh, its turning into a witch hunt because…..examples?
Just look at how many have been implicated since the Weinstein incident. Everyone’s guilty until proven innocent now, the exact opposite of our justice system. It’s going to come to a head eventually, someone’s going to be accused who’s not guilty, and it’ll be Salem 1690s all over again. Kind of why our justice system works.
I have a cousin who was actually raped and, like I said, anyone who would do that deserves to be outed and end up in jail. And just the other day, she told me that she’s taken to avoiding certain FB pages that she used to follow because the accusations won’t stop. She A, doesn’t want the constant reminder, and B, while she’s happy that the issue is finally being represented, she’s starting to not trust what she’s reading about the accusations.
People are starting to question the legitimacy of the claims. It’s human nature, sadly, to do so after an elongated period of time. I also wouldn’t be surprised if it happens because of all the accusations coming right on top of each other. Had they been more spread out, maybe things would be different.
The culling of the alpha male has begun, what happened to due process and trial by jury, don’t worry, not all woman want to be men, and not all men are bullies ! So there is still hope .
You lost me, not loving Ohmysosorry or Brandi the rest of the HGs seem alright to me so far !
Completely agree AG!!
Don’t worry, I honestly have no stakes in this game this season. I don’t really know these people at all (except James because of my students). I’m just in it to watch these celebs struggle to survive the game.
Music teacher, did you see the twelve year old play Fantasie Impromptu ??? He played fast and hit all the right notes, thank goodness he did it wrong, it would have been delightful to hear, but it would have damaged my confidence severely, I played that song for months before I figured out what Chopin was trying to say, I listened to other recordings and they are wrong as well, it is so fun to know something that apparently noone else does, it tends to ease me some 😸
Sit back and enjoy. You might be surprised.
I hope so I like a fair fight
Okay, I get why James is the first target. He was the best of the guys.
That slippery stuff will get you every time.
I think Pondarosa will be the narrator of the story line..she got it down.
hey Capt tonight starts the live feeds?..too lazy to check everything. lol
Yea, it’s midnight for me. I’ll wait until tomorrow to watch.
See y’all tomorrow night. It was fun.
Be there or be square.
Aloha, book him Dano .
What did everyone think as a whole?
Look entertaining so far. It’s not the BB we know, but then it shouldn’t be.
I’m still annoyed they brought on Dumbarosa and clearly are protecting her.
Oh come on. I don’t believe that. They put her in there to spice thing up.
The Lone Gunmen agree, OhImSoGrossa is in your face, Brandi said outright she is a working girl, but I don’t think she is a nice one, with a heart of gold, no no no no no .
The HOH twist takes away the competition advantage, doesn’t seem quite fair, like the rest of the HouseGuest’s well enough, later Scarlett, Manana ?????
All in all, so far so good, I am pleased, what can I say I like what I like 😸
Yep, Skanksville is a hooker, she knows it. Can’t stand her either. Of all the people in the world and they bring those 2 onto the show? I almost didn’t watch because of them, but I was talked out of it! LOL
I’ll talk to you later AG! :)
My mom laughed at that. She knows her from Beverly Hills Housewives. Apparently, being a beyotch is nothing new to her.
Wow, that didn’t take long. Day 1 conspiracy theories has to be a record of some kind.
Then again, it IS a shorter season than usual…
Just ok. It’s BB at least. Probably staged with Omarosa getting number 5. Favrorites are Shannon and Ross.
No favorites so far but I have non favorites, dumbarosa and skanksville! LOL
Same here on the dislikes. I personally do not agree with Omarosa’s politics (though do not want to argue that here), and Brandi is just a mean person IMO.
Not really liking James or the wrestler either.
James seems like a jerk, but that’s a first reaction, he might have some depth, maybe, lol! Don’t know much about the MMA fighter either so I’ll give him a shot as well. :)
They are both first reactions with me also. They could change, though it looks like James won’t be in the house long.
Chuck from the small feed leaks and tonight was better then I excepted but I hear he has spent time with Paul getting coached?
Is Brandi the one with the plastic face?
Hi, yes, I would describe her like that.
Seems like it’ll be an interesting season, at least…
Well, have a good night everyone.
You too. Nice to have BB back even if it is different.
Omarosa was saved from eviction during the very first “random” prize? Am I the only one who finds that odd?
