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.
CBS announced today that Big Brother will has been picked up for a 23rd season. The good news comes just hours before the long-running reality show's current all-star season 2-hour finale, which will see a new winner crowned.
On the air for two decades, the veteran series continues to be one of TV's top-rated reality shows. Airing three nights a week, each of its episodes consistently draw solid viewership against its prime time competition.
In each season of Big Brother, a group of people move into a house together under the watchful eye of dozens of cameras that record their every move 24 hours a day. Each week one houseguest is voted out of the house until just one remains, receiving a $500,000 grand prize.
Look for Season 23 of Big Brother in the summer of 2021, with Julie Chen Moonves once again returning as host.
