The countdown is on, my fellow Big Brother fans! Big Brother 17‘s two-night premiere airs Wednesday, June 24 and Thursday, June 25. CBS has released the names, photos, and bios of the Houseguests and announced the twist that will, no doubt, annoy my face off sooner rather than later. HAHA. I have such a love/hate relationship with Big Brother.
The twist, BB Takeover, will feature a surprise guest each week who will appear on the show to announce a new twist. Yes, a new twist every single week, which is expected to “shake up life inside the house on a weekly basis.”
“This is going to be the biggest Big Brother ever!” promised EP Rich Meehan. “Surprise guests, twists every week all summer long and, of course, Zingbot! But the houseguests better keep their focus, because Big Brother is all about relationships. Trust me, with all the twists and turns, those bonds will be more important than ever, because at the end of the week, it’s your housemates that send you packing on eviction night.” Meet the houseguests below.
It’s almost Big Brother time! CBS has released pictures of the Big Brother 17 house. Obviously, so we can see what it looks like before the new houseguests (stay tuned for that gallery) trash it and the ants move in.
The theme of the Big Brother 17 house this summer is “steel wave, a modern take on the summer beach house.” Big Brother‘s production designer Scott Storey told ETOnline, “I wanted it to be a house of steel and glass. It plays well with Big Brother and the ‘no place to hide’ concept.” New additions to the house for Season 17 include a second story metal platform, which has a clear floor, called The Bridge, an indoor hammock in the hangout room, and more cameras and microphones than ever before. See the house below.
Great news, my fellow Big Brother fans. CBS has renewed the summer hit for two more seasons. BB17 will air summer 2015 and BB18 will air summer 2016. As long as she doesn’t suffer any programming malfunctions between now and then, Julie Chenbot will continue her duties as host.
This marks the first time ever in Big Brother‘s sixteen season run that CBS has ordered two seasons in one shot. This, thanks to Big Brother 16‘s increase in viewers – averaging 7.56 million in the key demo – and increase in ratings over the summer-long nightmare that was Big Brother 15.
