Big Brother, which began in 2000, has become an annual tradition for fans; every summer they are treated to new houseguests, new challenges, and new evictions! Each week, there is a Head of Household challenge, where all of the players compete for the power in the house. The HoH then nominates two other houseguests for eviction.
At the end of tonight's Big Brother finale, host Julie Chen announced that the reality show will be returning next summer for its 21st season. She also confirmed that the already-renewed Celebrity Big Brother is set to air its second season this winter.
There have been questions recently about Chen's future with the Big Brother franchise. She abruptly left her other gig at CBS as co-host of The Talk earlier this month after her husband, Les Moonves, was ousted from his role as CEO and chairman of the network. While it is uncertain at this time as to whether Chen will stay on as the host of Big Brother, in making tonight's announcement she did say, "We will also see you again next summer."
