Big Brother Season 23: Everything We Know So Far

The Houseguests participate in the brand new Sunday competition called “Wild Card Competition,” where each team sends one person to play. Safety is always up for grabs but there is always a risk/reward element. Then, the Head of Household nominates two fellow Houseguests for possible eviction on BIG BROTHER Sunday, August 1 (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT on the CBS Television Network and live streaming on P+.

Although you’ve been told to predict the improbable, you can expect Big brother to return in 2021! This summer marked the return of the popular CBS reality series for a record-breaking 23rd season in the United States and 21st year overall. When it came time for the returning competitors to mitigate being nominated and then evicted from the house, each one faced a different set of challenges.

The show focuses on the group of Contenders (referred to as “HouseGuests”) who stand toe to toe to be the last one standing and clinch $750,000 (up to $250,000 from previous years) in a house where they are constantly filmed and have no access to the outside world.

The series ended on September 29, 2021, following 12 weeks of competitive rivalry. Derek Frazier was thwarted by Xavier Prather, the first black HouseGuest to claim victory in the Big Brother game, in the second consecutive unanimous jury vote, and the 4th in Big Brother United States history.

Here’s all we know about Big Brother Season 23.

Big Brother Season 23 Premiere

Big Brother 23 premiered at CBS on Wednesday, July 7 at 8/7c with a 90-minute episode. Nig brother was reverted to the initial premiere date of early July instead of late June, as has been the case for the past few years. The show had its inception in 2000, and every season following, except for Season 9, which aired in the winter of 2008, was released in early July.

What Does Big Brother Season 23 Had In Stall For Us?

Rich Meehan, and Allison Grodne the show’s Executive Producers, divulged to Parade that Season 23 will proceed with a few major shifts. During the live premiere, each move-in group will compete for the title of “team captain.” 
Early season clips from the other contestants will be shown to the captains before they pick their squad. 
Then, for the first time, they will fight for the role of Head of Household.
Using teams for the first time as of season 18 would be a first for Big Brother. These groups will tag along for the first 4 weeks of the season. All four teams are at risk of eviction every week, except for the HoH and his or her team.
The novel Wildcard Competition would give them a second chance to avoid extinction. Each non-immune squad gets to pick someone to perform in the Wildcard Competition, which also airs on Sunday nights. After that, the three of them will take part in a competition, awarding a  week’s worth of safety to the champion. If they embrace the immunity, they will be penalized individually, as a team, or as an entire group.
