Big Brother 22 live stream, premiere preview, cast and everything to know ahead of the premiere of Big Brother All-Stars 2!
Summer might be well underway, but one of the season’s iconic television staples is only just about to get started! After months of anticipation, Big Brother 22 is nearly upon us and what a season CBS has lined up for fans.
Looking to celebrate the show’s 20th anniversary, while also giving fans a well-earned distraction, CBS is gearing up for its second-ever All-Stars season! Although the season remains shrouded in mystery, we’ve recently been gifted with several exciting pieces of information about the upcoming season!
Big Brother 22 house theme
Ahead of Big Brother 22‘s premiere, CBS has gifted fans with their first look at the All-Stars 2 house which has been designed to celebrate Big Brother and the houseguests which have shaped the game over the years.
From rooms inspired by former houseguests and their iconic moments such as Dan’s Funeral or Rachel’s signature “Floaters Grab a Lifevest” victory mantra, to bedrooms inspired by key aspects of the game including the show’s signature houseguest keys and the cameras which capture the houseguests’ every move!
Big Brother 22 cast: Which former Big Brother contestants are competing?
Typically, CBS is known to unveil the cast prior to the season premiere; however, CBS is trying something different this year for Big Brother 22.
Rather than announing the cast before the premiere, fans will have to wait until premiere night to find out which former players will return to compete as part of the All-Stars 2 cast. While we’ll have to wait to see which houseguests will be playing the game this summer, there have been plenty of rumors floating around as to which houseguests will return.
Although it’s all speculation at this point, here are some of the few houseguest names floating around as possible members of the Big Brother 22 cast per Big Brother Network:
Christmas Abbott, Paul Abrahamian, David Alexander, Nicole Anthony, Amber Borzotra, Cody Calafiore, Kevin Campbell, Kaycee Clark, Tyler Crispen, Bayleigh Dayton, Daniele Donato, Nicole Franzel, Josh Martinez, Hayden Moss, Enzo Palumbo, Janelle Pierzina, Danielle Reyes, Kaysar Ridha, Da’Vonne Rogers and Ian Terry.
Big Brother 22 schedule: What nights of the week is Big Brother All-Stars on?
Due to COVID-19 related delays, Big Brother is getting a later start than usual this summer beginning its season on Aug. 5 rather than in late June as it typically does. So what exactly does the show’s schedule look like this season?
The fun begins with a 2-hour move-in special airing Aug. 5 at 9/8c on CBS. After the 2-hour premiere, CBS will air a special episode of the show at 10/9c on Sunday, Aug. 9. From there, the show will settle back into a more regular schedule airing every Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday night at 8/7c on CBS.
While CBS has not confirmed the exact plan for each episode, it seems safe to assume Sunday episodes will feature nominations and perhaps any surprise competitions, Wednesday will likely be home to Veto Competitions and Ceremonies and Thursday will be the Live Eviction episodes/HOH competitions.
Big Brother 22: When will the Big Brother live feeds launch?
In a typical year, the Big Brother live feeds go live following the season premiere episode(s). However, this isn’t a typical year. Considering CBS is teasing a live move-in special, it seems likely we’ll have to wait a few days before the live feeds officially launch for the season.
If we had to make an educated guess, it seems likely the Big Brother live feeds will go up following the special episode CBS has scheduled to Aug. 9 at 10/9c. This will give production time to film a few days worth of footage before the live feeds launch, without depriving fans of the live feeds for an extended period of time.
Update: CBS has since confirmed the Big Brother live feeds will become available following the west coast broadcast of the 2-hour premiere on Aug. 5. Looking at CBS’s formal announcement it seems the live feeds will launch after 11:30 p.m. PT Aug. 5 — meaning those on the east coast won’t get the chance to jump on the live feeds until after 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 6.
