Celebrity Big Brother is the celebrity edition of reality hit Big Brother and follows a group of celebrities living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize.
Who will become the next Head of Household and secure a spot in the Final Four? Plus, with three competitions and two evictions left, who will defy the odds and emerge as the first ever winner of Celebrity Big Brother?
CBS announced today that Celebrity Big Brother is being brought back for Season 2. The good news follows a successful debut outing of the reality spin-off, which premiered earlier this year for a two-and-a-half week run.
Airing in February during the Winter Olympics, the series fared well against the games with consistently solid ratings. While regular Big Brother typically airs during the summer months, it's likely that CBS will keep the celebrity edition as a mid-season option in 2018-2019.
In Celebrity Big Brother, famous actors, athletes, and entertainers are sequestered in the Big Brother house, where they play an abbreviated version of the well-known reality series. Isolated from the outside world and constantly under surveillance by a house full of cameras, the house guests must use their social, mental, and physical abilities as they compete for the chance to win it all.
