'Big Brother' Season 23 is upon us, and we cannot wait to see what the upcoming installment has in store for us. From what we know so far, the premiere episode will introduce a host of twists, of which some are truly unexpected. The creators have introduced the 16-member cast and fans are already picking sides. Will there be a Cody Calafiore this year? Only time will tell.
Release date and how to watch
'Big Brother' season 23 premieres on July 7 at 8/7c on CBS. The summer reality hit series will drop three episodes every week. Beginning July 11, the show will air on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at the same time. For more information, check your local listings. If you don't have access to cable, there are a handful of streaming services -- AT & TV TV, fubo TV, and Hulu -- that offer CBS as a part of their channel lineup.
The 'Big Brother' format has not changed in eons. However, the creators have decided to introduce twists that will not only intensify the competition but also amp up the entertainment quotient. This season, the housemates enter in groups of four. Each team will be assigned a captain, who will have access to video clips of the contestants. This will help them determine the best candidates for their teams. Also, there's a 'double or nothing' twist, which is still a mystery. It could be about the prize fund but let's wait for an official announcement.
Executive producer Allison Grodner dished on the decor and theme of this year's 'BB'. "We really felt like after over a year of all of us being locked in our homes, we wanted our house guests to be able to feel like they’re on vacation," she told Parade and added: "I think we’re all longing for our vacations to get out. It’s beach club meets casino; think Monte Carlo meets Vegas. It’s going to feel like a boutique hotel with a casino vibe. Big Brother has always been about taking chances in high stakes."
The casino theme doesn't end with just decor. It will seep into the game where the houseguests will have to carefully choose between risk and reward.
This year's houseguests are Alyssa Lopez, Azah Awasum, Brent Champagne, Britini D'Angelo, Christie Valdiserri, Derek Frazier, Derek Xiao, Brandon 'Frenchie' French, Christian Birkenberger, Hannah Chaddha, Kyland Young, Sarah Steagall, Tiffany Mitchell, Travis Long, Whitney Williams, and Xavier Prather.
'Big Brother' is produced by Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol Shine North America.
