sept25 Celebrity

CBS has just announced it will broadcast its first ever celebrity edition of the show this winter!

The special event—which is in addition to BB's upcoming milestone 20th season in Summer 2018—will feature Julie Chen as host, multiple episodes per week during a concentrated run, the series’ signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions, and Live Evictions.

The motto of Big Brother is "expect the unexpected" so we should have known that CBS' announcement that it was (finally) producing its own season of Celebrity Big Brother would come with a surprising caveat. The show's host Julie Chen, who is married to CBS chief Leslie Moonves, revealed that her husband forced her to take a pay cut in order for the celebrity spin-off to happen.    

Does that mean more 24/7 Live Feeds coverage through CBS All Access? You betcha.

Looks like Feeders won't have to wait until next June to get their fill of behind-the-scenes shenanigans with the Houseguests!

"Big Brother has been dominating pop culture throughout its 19 seasons, and it is exciting to grow the franchise with the first-ever celebrity edition in the U.S.," said executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan.

 "Celebrities will be under the watchful eye of the Big Brother cameras, facing the classic game elements, and of course new twists in this special winter event."

 Stay tuned for additional details regarding scheduling, casting, and when you can expect the show to premiere!

 Watch all-new episodes of Big Brother on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8/7c, and Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS and CBS All Access.
