CBS has announced the Survivor 41 premiere date and the Big Brother 23 finale date, which are different days this year, plus the Tough As Nails season 3 finale date.
For BB23, CBS’s Big Brother did what few reality competition shows do: it increased its prize, and basically ended up adjusting the original prize for inflation.
Is Big Brother racist? Big Brother and CBS have spent most of the show’s life doing exactly the opposite of what host Julie Chen Moonves claimed in a BB23 interview that the show has done to address racism and other forms of bigotry.
Bringing back teams for BB23’s first twist ensures Big Brother is “staying current,” executive producer Allison Grodner told an interviewer. While the idea is not new, there are changes to how it will work.
CBS announced the joint premiere date and schedules for both Big Brother 23 and Love Island 3—and possibly hinted at Big Brother’s theme.
Big Brother casting director Robyn Kass has quit ahead of BB23. Meanwhile, BB21 winner Jackson Michie admitted drug use and addiction, and said he was experiencing withdrawal during the show.
After a dead-on-arrival 22nd season, Big Brother 23 will happen—but not until the summer of 2021, CBS said. What does that mean for a possible spring Celebrity Big Brother, or for Survivor’s timeslot?
