There was a lot of interest when CBS announced they will do a celebrity version here in the US. Not just viewers and superfans there were also the Hollywood fans interested in the BB house.
EP, Allison Grodner, told the Hollywood Reporter, “We’ve had an overwhelming response from people who want to be on the show”. Julie Chen said they are getting calls from agents.
So, who in Tinseltown is calling to pitch themselves for a spot on the show?
There have been very few details released, but we now know the premier will be on February 7, 2018. However, this will be a shorter version of the summer show. The 2-hour finale will be on February 25th. So basically, it’s a 2 1/2-week vacation with a lot of intensity. This will be a fast-paced version and the 24/7 live feeds will be back!
CBS has had such success with “Big Brother” for 19 seasons, they decided to dip into the celebrity version. CBS feels they could make it work and be profitable.
They will make some changes to the BB house but not a complete overhaul. The outside will definitely reflect the winter version.
We know Julie is taking a pay cut according to her hubby. This is one the ways to make it work financially. CBS needs to have money for the celebrities.
So, who will be walking into the BB house? It’s been rumored the “Bachelorette”, Kaitlyn Bristowe, would like to do the show. Superfan Bobby Moynahan said he couldn’t do the show, he doesn’t like the idea of people watching 24/7. He said he’d never go to the bathroom.
Spencer Pratt and friend, Perez Hilton, have been waiting for the US version. Spencer joked the show is like the Willy Wonka golden ticket.
Pratt has competed twice on the UK version. Pratt has a list of players to join, such as Nene Lekes, Scott Disick, OJ Simpson, Billy Bush, Caitlyn and Brody Jenner, and of course none other than Paul Abrahamian. Former NSYNC member, Lance Bass, has expressed interest as well. He said he has asked to do the British version every year.
Lance and Dan Gheesling do a BB event at his house. He said he was the only one to get Dan evicted! Lance said no names but another member of NSYNC might be interested.
Julie has added some names to the list, Martha Stewart, Snoop Dogg, Anthony Scaramuci, Tonya Harding, and also Andy Cohen.
So who will enter the BB house in February? I guess we will have to wait and see!
