Series Chronology
Next Season Celebrity Big Brother 2 (US)

Celebrity Big Brother 1 (US), also known as Big Brother: Celebrity Edition, is the first edition of Celebrity Big Brother in Big Brother U.S.

Background

Development

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight during Big Brother 17, host Julie Chen revealed that a Celebrity season for Big Brother US was in the works around Big Brother 2 and at one point the production even had cast actress Paris Hilton to compete on the season. However, the season was scrapped because the producers thought that a Celebrity season would cause Big Brother to jump the shark[1].

However, due to the high ratings of recent seasons, it was announced that the first ever Celebrity edition would air during the winter, following Big Brother 19, with Big Brother 20 to follow in the summer.[2]In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Julie said, "We have discussed it as far back as season 2. And then again about a year or two ago, but the economics didn’t make sense then. We found a way to make it work, and that’s all I can say! Game of Thrones likes to say “winter is coming” — well, guess what? With winter, comes the unexpected… Celebrity Big Brother, baby!" [3]

It was then announced on December 1, 2017, that the premiere of the season would be on February 7, 2018, and the finale would be later in the month on February 25th. However, the season will air simultaneously to the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Games.[4]

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Allison Grodner admitted speaking with the producers of Celebrity Big Brother UK on how to cast and deal with the celebrities and their demands.[5] However, there were no special requests. Grodner also said, "We have more games than the other formats. We want the games to be as fair as possible. And we made it clear to the cast — no special treatment."

Air Schedule

On January 5, 2018, CBS revealed the airing schedule for the upcoming Celebrity edition with episodes on four nights a week including two-hour episodes.[6] Later once the cast was released, it was announced that evictions would take place on Mondays and Fridays[7].

After Dark

Cbbad schedule 2018

The Schedule fo Celebrity Big Brother After Dark.[8]

Big Brother After Dark returns for Celebrity Big Brother but under the name Celebrity Big Brother After Dark. The format remained the same with different times to reflect the different schedule[9].

Casting

The cast was consistently being teased throughout the weeks leading up to the show. Julie Chen posted a hint of the cast with emojis, announcing a cast of 11, despite the house showing only 10 seats at the table.[10] The cast was set to be announced on January 28th, during the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. But before the show started, a teaser was aired and showed all of their faces in a rapid series of images, with the official announcement happening later on during the show.[11]

It was later announced that singer Boy George was almost cast, but the timing was not right.[12]

House

The house pictures were released mid-January revealing a stylish Hollywood style theme. On January 30, 2018, CBS released a press statement:

January 30, 2018 House Press Statement

"“We wanted to elevate the sophistication of the house design for the first-ever Celebrity Edition of BIG BROTHER,” said Allison Grodner, Executive Producer, BIG BROTHER: CELEBRITY EDITION. “Our Houseguests and viewers alike will be transported into the glamour of a Hollywood Hills home that embraces iconic Los Angeles and celebrity themes in every room.”

The glamour is front and center as the double doors of the house open onto a wall of light bulbs backed with gold, highlighting the gold BIG BROTHER “walk of fame” star in the entryway. For the first time, the living room, kitchen and dining room all share one cohesive theme – the Los Angeles skyline – which spans 64’ wide across the entire living space and 23’ tall, from the floor to the ceiling in the two-story space. The impressive 2,768-square-foot mural of the skyline is printed directly onto mirrored plexi-glass to create the sparkle of a night sky.

Another first for the house is a square dining room table, which serves up a formal look of gold flatware and deep green velvet chairs. Behind the dining room table, 108 powder-coated cameras are mounted over tabloid headlines that include the words “star,” “headline” and “famous.” The kitchen is outfitted in dark hardwood and features a unique eat-in banquette, unlike the island previous Houseguests have used. The Celebrity Houseguests will enjoy all new appliances, including the house’s first espresso machine.

A classic Hollywood car greets the Houseguests, with a detailed replica of a 1955 Porsche Spyder hanging from the wall of the bedroom hallway. The car was custom-built for BIG BROTHER: CELEBRITY EDITION. Currently, the engine and all mechanical gear have been removed. Once the show is over, the car body will be returned to its creator and turned into an actual car.

The bedrooms in the house continue the Hollywood Hills theme. This season’s cast will each enjoy their own bed – another Big Brother first. The Red Carpet Arrival bedroom looks like a star-studded premiere event, outfitted with black and white satin sheets, a red carpet and gold stanchions, and even a glamorous step-and-repeat wall to tie the look together. The second bedroom, which is blue, looks like the inside of a celebrity closet with floor-to-ceiling closets, satin hangers, diamonds and shoes. The third bedroom is home to many of Los Angeles’ famous landmarks, including the Hollywood Bowl, the Los Angeles Airport, the Griffith Observatory and Los Angeles City Hall.

This season’s Houseguests will probably spend the most time in the Hollywood speakeasy. The walls are covered with photos depicting stars of classic Hollywood lore, and the dim lighting makes it feel like a very intimate and cozy place – perfect for secret strategy meetings. The chess set, normally upstairs, is now located inside the speakeasy along with a new game, Chinese checkers.

The luxurious bathroom is inspired by Japanese spas and feels like a five-star hotel spa with bamboo, a stone floor, black river rock and an ample sofa. The Celebrity Houseguests will have more privacy than former Houseguests, with a concrete wall that separates the two showers, along with two vanity stations.

Upstairs, the Head of Household suite is a poolside cabana, with a vintage photomural that will make any Houseguest feel like they just stepped into a sunny retreat. The lucky HOH will also enjoy the biggest bed this room has ever seen – two queen-size beds built together. With limited space in the backyard this year due to the constant competitions, a pool-hall bridge has been created upstairs, as well as a new indoor gym, available 24/7. The Celebrity Houseguests will still be able to enjoy time outside for late night fire-pit chats as well as dips in the Jacuzzi."[13]

International Coverage

Since the inception of Big Brother U.S., the franchise had been available to Canada and seasons 4 & 9 were broadcasted in the United Kingdom. Celebrity Big Brother changed that idea. In a tweet by houseguest James Maslow that stated that it would air on linear television of Canada and Australia and on Youtube in Albania, Bangladesh, Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sri Lanka, and Thailand[15]

Later in the week, Channel 9Go announced via video that the show would premiere on February 11, 2018.[16] Days later, Channel 9 announced that episodes would be available the same day on 9Now.[17]. After the first three episodes, 9GO! moved the show to a later timeslot due to struggling ratings around a very low 50K.[18]

Live Feeds Preview

To hipe up the live feeders for the upcoming season. CBS leaked the live feeds for short periods of time from the time the houseguests entered the house until the premiere. The dates and times are shown in BBT (PST):

Production Changes

BB Bot FM

The Celebrity Big BroBot Facebook Messenger Code[32].

BB Bot Kik

The Celebrity Big BroBot Kik Code[33].

  • Shorter Season: Due to the fact that the Celebrity houseguests can't commit to a full three month season, the season will last for 26 days, just short of 4 weeks.
  • Smaller Prize Money: Since the series is one-third the normal length of a normal season, and due to the fact that the Celebrities will be paid to enter the house, the prize has been cut in half to $250,000.[34]
  • No Have-Nots: Announced on Entertainment Tonight, the Celebrities will not have to endure being a have-not. However, slop will still be given out as a punishment[35]. Julie later would say in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that there is not enough time to put the celebrities on slop. But she said that "they (the celebrities) will experience slop at some point during the game."[36] The slop phase of the game only lasted for 48 hours.
  • Celebrity Big BroBot: In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Allison Grodner announced that there would be a new kind of voting for the celebrity series[37]. However, it was officially revealed as the Celebrity Big BroBot where viewers can interact on Facebook Messenger or Kik. Viewers are able to compete in trivia with the bot and vote for things that can impact the game[38].
  • Lifted Alcohol Restriction: Since the Big Brother 2 (US) knife to the throat incident, the producers have limited the houseguests with how much alcohol they could consume inside the house. However, for the first time, producers had lifted the ban after believing that the celebrity houseguests would play more to the vest adding to the fact that Omarosa could spill intel from the White House[39].

Twists

  • Celebrity Houseguests: For the first time in American Big Brother, a group of Celebrity houseguests will enter the house.[40]
  • Award Immunity: Seconds before the first Head of Household competition, Julie announced that an immunity award would be presented to the houseguest that stood behind the star with the corresponding number in Julie's envelope. The correct number was 5, so Omarosa Manigault was "awarded" immunity for the first eviction.
  • Big Brother Giftbags: A revamped edition of Season 19's Tree of Temptation. However, each houseguest would have their own predetermined bag. The twist would immediately end once the HOH Recast power is used.
  • HOH Recast: After the first HOH competition was won by Shannon Elizabeth, the houseguests all grabbed bags. One of those bags contained a power known as the "Recast," where the winner could dethrone the current HOH and take their place.
  • Original Jury Format: Due to the Celebrity format, the houseguests will all be apart of the Jury once evicted. However, they will be sent home instead of being sequestered in a Jury house, meaning they can watch the episodes play out before coming back to cast their final vote.
CBB1 Vetos

The Three Power of Veto Options [41]

  • Pick-A-Veto: Returning from Big Brother: Over The Top with a twist. The audience will be voting between three different types of Power of Veto for the houseguests to compete for in Day 20's live competition.
    • Diamond Power of Veto: "The Veto winner has the power to remove one of the nominees from the chopping block and also name the replacement nominee"[42].
    • VIP Power of Veto: "The winner of this Veto will have the option to use the Veto once or twice or not all in the same Veto Meeting. If the winner of the VIP Veto removes one of the nominees, he or she will wait for a replacement nominee to be made before deciding if they want to use it a second time"[43].
    • Spotlight Power of Veto: The winner of this Veto is guaranteed to be in the spotlight at the Veto Meeting, because this Veto HAS to be used to save one of the two nominees from the chopping block"[44].
  • Five Houseguest Finale: For the first time in American history, five houseguests will be still in the house on finale night.
  • Final Four, Final HOH: Similar to the Final HOH in Big Brother: Over The Top, four houseguests will play in the competition with the winner selecting one houseguest to take to the finals[45].
