Season 22 of Big Brother is premiering in just a few days and it will be an All-Stars season for the second time ever!
It was just revealed that the season premiere, which is airing on Wednesday (August 5), will be taped live for the first time. All of the new contestants are going to be revealed during the show.
“For the first time ever, we are having a two-hour all-live premiere, which means that everything is happening as it’s happening. And it’s going to be expect the unexpected and a roller coaster ride for everybody. But in order to do this, we certainly have made this an incredibly active jam-packed two hours that is going to keep these all-stars really busy. So there’s a lot going on. It’s completely different than a regular premiere,” executive producer Allison Grodner told EW.
She added, “You’re not going to see the players talking to us in the diary room. That’s not possible on a live opening night to edit that in. So there’ll be a lot of action and a lot of Julie guiding the conversation, but it’s bound to be really exciting. For us, we realized we could really take the chance to do this because it’s an all-stars cast and an all-stars cast that understands the process of Big Brother and just how things work. So we knew it’d be easier to do with a cast that’s been there before.”
Allison also revealed that there will be some changes this season due to the pandemic, but viewers at home hopefully won’t notice them.
