Welcome Back, Readers – It’s Big Brother 18 Time!

It’s that time of the year again as we gather round the TV and our Feeds to feast upon another awesome summer of Big Brother! The BB18 season starts on Wednesday and we’re ramping up for a record long season with the new Houseguests facing up to 99 days of adventure and we’ll be there for all of it!

By now you’ve probably met all the Houseguests, but if you’re still learning names then check out our gallery, toured the new house design, and read about the latest twist that’s set to introduce four additional people to the game. We’re almost ready for showtime.

This summer our coverage for Big Brother 18 will be wall to wall carrying over our momentum from this preseason in to daily updates with the latest spoilers and results, episode recaps, and daytime and overnight Feed Highlight reports once the Live Feeds (Free Trial) begin this Thursday at 10PM PT.

New this season for us is our completely redesigned Big Brother App for iOS, Android, and Windows. It’s entirely free and includes alert notifications for breaking news, all of our latest articles, HG status updates, links to watch your Feeds, and lots more. Be sure to download that now so you don’t miss any important updates.

On the personal side of the site, I’m thrilled to have the chance for this work as your Big Brother “Sherpa” of sorts. As a fan and consistent viewer since day one of the series this will be my tenth straight season of writing about it and I couldn’t imagine a better summer job. So thank you for the opportunity as it’s a huge boost for my family which actually expanded this past off-season!

Yes, I’ve now got two little boys who get to spend the summer with their Dad here at home thanks to all your site visits, sharing us with your friends, and Feed sign ups that support us and make this fun possible. Aside from the diaper changes and bottle feeding through the season my biggest challenge just might be making sure they both still recognize me as “Daddy” at the end of September! So thank you again for what you help me do.

Back on the work side of things, our writing team this summer will see Branden on the team again this year with his coverage of episode recaps, daily highlight reports, and weekly events. Adam Poch is back as well with his weekly Houseguest rankings for the season.

Big Brother 18 coverage from Big Brother Network will include:

  • Fast updates straight off the Feeds. As it happens I’ll be reporting it on our app, Twitter, Facebook, and here on the site so you can grab the Flashback and watch the biggest events.
  • Alert notifications on your mobile device through our new Big Brother App.
  • Daily reports with the top moments and important discussions from the Feeds.
  • Forum and Chat room for the fans who want even more conversation with other fans.
  • Email updates sent out every afternoon with all the past 24 hours’ articles

I’m really looking forward to the new season of Big Brother starting up this week and can’t wait to share it along with you. Big Brother Network is a community of fans and your participation is what makes it awesome so thanks again for joining us!

  1. Beautiful family. Congrats…all children need a sibling, imo.
    I hope this season has a great beginning, an entertaining middle, and a very happy, satisfying ending.

  2. This year I decided to sign up for feeds through your site. I’ve been impressed with how you run things and needed a change from previous hang out. The app looks great so I’m anxious to see it put to work. Best of luck to you this season and hope everything runs smoothly.

  3. What an adorable family you have there!!! Cannot wait to get this party started!!! :-)

  4. I am not going to be watching….if ever again! I have never liked when they give us mystery houseguests….I have never liked returning players on Survivor (mainly because I have been applying to get on that show for 15/16 years since season 2) & even though I have never wanted to be on Big Brother I am not going to watch when I don’t know the entire cast before the premiere! CBS is losing a viewer for pulling this stuff….

    • Well, Andy, if that’s all it takes for you to pull the plug on BB, you probably wouldn’t be very good at Survivor and would quit as soon as things didn’t go the way you wanted them to. Zing!

      • Why would you say something so stupid? I said I wasn’t going to watch Big Brother anymore because of the mystery houseguests & not watching when I don’t know who the FULL cast is before the season actually starts? What does that have anything at all to do with me on Survivor! That has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with anything! When has Survivor ever had mystery castaways like Big Brother has mystery houseguests? As a matter a fact, CBS releases the Survivor cast A FULL ENTIRE MONTH before the season even starts (which is also even leaked by sites like this that focus on Survivor….in fact, not only do I already know the cast for the next season [33] in the fall I also already know the cast for season 34 that won’t even be on until 2017)! So how can you even compare the 2? You are full of it! ?

      • It shows a quitter mentality, Andy, and actually, your post reminds me of a child with a temper tantrum. Your “justification” doesn’t hold water, imo. Your attitude is a definite red flag for being on Survivor. You’d never last. So, Zingbot came early. Zing!

    • While you’re at it, can you also stop playing the lottery? That way it can increase my chances of winning.

  5. Love the family picture Matthew. Enjoying some free time before the craziness starts?

  6. Hi gang! It’s good to be back with my Big Brother peeps! That’s part of the reason I so enjoy this time of year. I look forward to discussing Big Brother 18 with all of you…. the good, the bad, and the ugly! Was it just me, or was anyone else afraid that Frankie Grande was going to pop out of one of the trunks in a blast of confetti and glitter?
