Celebrity Big Brother, also known as Big Brother: Celebrity Edition,[1] is a spin-off series of the American version of the Dutch reality television franchise Big Brother. This season aired during the winter of the 2017–18 network television season on CBS and was the second U.S. Big Brother season to air outside the usual summer television season, the first being Big Brother 9 in 2008. Julie Chen returned as host, with Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan returning as executive producers. The series is produced by Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol Shine North America. The first season premiered on February 7, 2018.[2]

The promotional logo was released on December 20, 2017. The logo is similar to that used for Big Brother 19, with the word "celebrity" added.[3] The first teaser was also released the same day.[4] In January 2018 official photos of the house and backyard were released through a press release and an Instagram livestream with Julie Chen.[5][6] On January 28, 2018, the official cast was announced during The 60th Annual Grammy Awards.

The first season officially concluded on February 25, 2018 when Marissa Jaret Winokur beat Ross Mathews by a final jury vote of 6 to 3. Ross was also later named America's Favorite HouseGuest.

On May 12, 2018, CBS renewed the spin-off for a second season.[7]

Background[]

After the first season of the British version of Big Brother proved to be a success in the ratings for Channel 4, the network collaborated with the BBC for the first British season of Celebrity Big Brother in aid of Comic Relief. The season ran for a condensed run of eight days and featured six British celebrities moving into the house used for the first British season.[8] Due to the success of the first celebrity ion, a second season was ordered and shown exclusively on Channel 4 in November 2002. The celebrity version took a two-year break before returning for its third season in 2005, and became a regular staple alongside the regular British version. Starting with the third season, the show began to feature celebrities outside the United Kingdom alongside well known British celebrities. Many notable American celebrities have since taken part in the British version of Celebrity Big Brother.[9][10] American actor Gary Busey took part in the fourteenth season in the summer of 2014 and became the first American celebrity to win Celebrity Big Brother in the United Kingdom.[11]

An American version of Celebrity Big Brother has been speculated since 2002, along with a celebrity version of Survivor.[12] In an interview, Julie Chen and CBS CEO Leslie Moonves revealed talks of a celebrity ion of Big Brother as far back as Big Brother 2.[13] It was rumored that CBS was looking to air a celebrity ion in the fall after Big Brother 3 with radio personality Howard Stern speculated as a possible houseguest.[14] Chen revealed that Paris Hilton had agreed to do it and Roseanne Barr initially agreed to take part, but then backed out.[13] Barr would later take part in another celebrity spin-off of Big Brother called Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack in the United Kingdom in 2008, where she watched over a group of non-celebrity housemates for a day, set tasks and talked to them in the Diary Room.[15]

Julie Chen announced on September 7, 2017, during a live double eviction episode of Big Brother 19 that Celebrity Big Brother would air sometime during the winter, before the twentieth season of Big Brother in the summer of 2018. CBS later confirmed via a press release that Julie Chen would return to host the new season, and Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan will be executive producers. The season will be produced by Fly on the Wall Entertainment in association with Endemol Shine North America.[16]

On September 13, 2017, it was revealed by Chen that her husband, CBS chief executive Leslie Moonves, forced her to take a pay cut for the celebrity ion to happen. Moonves stated, "You shouldn't be expected to be paid as if it's a full series. It's a condensed version."[17]

Production[]

The format of the show remained similar to the American version of Big Brother. Competitions for Head of Household and Power of Veto had been confirmed to returned for this ion along with live evictions.[2] On December 1, 2017, CBS revealed that the series would premiere on February 7, 2018 and wrap on February 25, 2018.[18]

Series changes[]

Celebrity Big Brother was a condensed version of the game and would not last as long as a regular season of Big Brother, with episodes only shown over two weeks instead of three months.[17][19] Unlike the parent series Jury members were not sequestered separately and were allowed to return to the outside world as well as watch the show.[20][21] Beginning with an incident that led to a lawsuit in Big Brother 2 when HouseGuest Justin Sebik got drunk and threatened fellow HouseGuest Krista Stegall by holding a knife to her throat, there has been an alcohol restriction in the house.[22][23] The alcohol restriction was lifted for the Celebrity HouseGuests.[24][25] The space in the backyard was reduced to allow production to constantly perform construction for competitions but still allow 24/7 access for the HouseGuests.[26] For the celebrity version of America's Favorite HouseGuest, the term Favorite Celebrity HouseGuest was also being used interchangeably.[27][28] For the first time since the beginning of the U.S. series, five players were featured in the season's finale night versus the usual three.[29]

Broadcasts[]

The main television coverage of Celebrity Big Brother was screened on CBS during the winter of the 2017–18 network television season. CBS decided to schedule the spin-off during the February 2018 sweeps period to counterprogram NBC's coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics.[16] Episodes aired on Sundays, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with two special episodes on Thursday, February 8 and Saturday, February 24. Most episodes aired for one hour and aired from 8:00-9:00 p.m. EST; the Friday episodes and the season finale, however, ran for two hours each (from 8:00-10:00 p.m. EST).[30] The live Internet feeds returned for the American version of Celebrity Big Brother as part of CBS All Access.[16][13] Alongside the weekly shows on CBS, the companion series Big Brother: After Dark returned on Pop under the title Celebrity Big Brother: After Dark. The show provided live coverage nightly from inside the House.[16][31]

International broadcasts[]

The series was screened in Canada on Global in simulcast with CBS.[32]

The celebrity series is also the first American Big Brother season to be screened in Australia.[33] The program aired on the Nine Network’s secondary channel; 9Go! from the 11th of February and air 5 times a week (Sundays to Thursdays) with Sunday and Thursday episodes set to air at 8:30pm and with other episodes set to air at 9:30pm.[34] Additionally, episodes were made available to Australian viewers on Nine’s streaming service 9Now the shortly after the American airing of the show.[35] However, low ratings saw the series bumped to a later timeslot on 9Go![36]

Notes[]

  • ^Note 1 :      Before the first HoH competition, the HouseGuests were instructed to stand on a number. The HouseGuest standing on the winning number would be awarded immunity that week. Omarosa was the winner and was immune from nominations for the week. Since she was immune, she became ineligible to compete in the HoH competition.
  • ^Note 2 :      Due to the Gift Bag twist, Keshia opened her bag to reveal she had the "Recast” Power, dethroning Shannon, who then became immune from nominations for the round.
  • ^Note 3 : Mark, Metta, and Ross were the first three HouseGuests to fall in the HoH competition and were therefore put on slop for 48 hours.
  • ^Note 4 :      The nature of this rounds's Power of Veto was determined by America's vote. America voted between the Diamond Veto (which allows the winner to save a nominee and choose the replacement nominee), the VIP Veto (which gives the winner the additional option of using the Veto twice; either on the replacement nominee or other original nominee) or the Spotlight Veto (which forces the winner to use the veto). America chose the VIP Veto.[63]
  • ^Note 5 : There was a double eviction on Day 24. Following the first eviction, the remaining HouseGuests played a round worth of games — including HoH and Veto competitions and Nomination, Veto and Eviction ceremonies—during the remainder of the live show, culminating in a second eviction for the night.
  • ^Note 6 : All four remaining houseguests competed in the final Head of Household competition. Marissa won the final HoH competition and chose to evict Mark and then Ariadna, who were officially announced as 9th and 8th jurors, respectively.
  • ^Note 7 : During the finale, the jury members voted for which finalist should win Celebrity Big Brother.
