Big Brother Just Premiered its 20th Season

Wednesday, June 27th, was the premiere of the historic 20th season of the hit reality show, Big Brother. 240 houseguests have played the game, played over 600 competitions, and have won over $10,000,000.

Season 20 features 16 brand new houseguests, cut off completely from the outside world for 99 days, competing for $500,000 and the title of winner. Hosted by Julie Chen, BB has taught fans to always “Expect the Unexpected.”

Whether you are a newbie to the show or a dedicated superfan, this season is not something you want to miss. Season 20 is said to be filled with many twists and turns.

Super fans may have noticed the entire premiere audience was filled with past contestants from the past 19 seasons. How many do you recognize?

Executive Producer, Allison Grodner confirmed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that no old houseguests will be playing the game this season. However, some might show up throughout to commemorate the 20th season by hosting competitions or various other reasons.

The premiere already had someone gain a power, someone else turns into a robot, and others fighting for their safety.

Tune in to find out which houseguests will end up in a showmance, which ones will fly under the radar, which ones will start the first fight, and which ones will make it to finale night!

The house is tech-themed this year, and America can impact the game by voting for houseguests to gain powers or punishments on the CBS messenger bot.
