CBS has announced the premiere date and other details for Big Brother 22, which will be the show’s second all-star edition.
CBS’s summer reality shows Love Island and Big Brother both appear ready to go into production soon, with a major change for Love Island season 2.
CBS’s fun, light summer reality competition Big Brother has been on for two decades now. Here’s a look back at some of my coverage, from behind the scenes stories to its lowest moments.
A report says former houseguests have been contacted for an all-star Big Brother 22. Will the show bring back winners, fan-favorites, or other players who have said racist or other bigoted things?
For Big Brother 22 and Love Island 2, CBS says “we anticipate having those shows on this summer.” But there’s a question about when that is.
Two stories published this week about BB22 have opposite information about this summer’s version of Big Brother. Will the CBS reality show be back? What about Love Island season 2?
No mention of Celebrity Big Brother 3 and no room for CBB3 on the winter schedule seem to indicate that it’s done, at least for now.
Jackson Michie was confronted with fragments of his behavior during the live finale, and exited the house with $500,000 and a dejected look on his face.
Julie Chen Moonves will return as host of Big Brother, which has been renewed, though CBS made no mention of a potential Celebrity Big Brother season 3.
A BB21 houseguest’s comment during an interview in the Diary Room about Zingbot’s zings was “too nice” for a Big Brother producer. Other houseguests report that they’re told what to say.
The #JackEvictionParty was great, but let’s not pretend that Big Brother has solved its problems.
“Is it acceptable to you that your two top reality shows allow this behavior and continue to perpetuate stereotypes through the choices the producers are making in editing and in production?”, I asked CBS’ top entertainment executives.
Jack has again said something racist, while the Kemi, David, and Ovi talked about their experiences. Producer Allison Grodner and former player Jeff Schroeder have also each commented.
Big Brother’s editors didn’t include any of the things Jack or Jackson said about Kemi on BB21. But they did portray Kemi in a way that led one journalist to say she seemed like a “psychopath.”
A conversation between Jack and Jackson is being scrutinized over whether or not they used a racial slur toward David. What’s clear is that they have unquestionably vilified and targeted him along with Kemi and Jessica.
