“Big Brother” 15 is nearing — and coming this week, the cast will be released along with other details surrounding the hit CBS show. Select members of the press have already toured Big Brother house and are just waiting for the go-ahead from CBS to release all they know about season 15.
What are some facts about this season’s show so far? For one, the number of contestants is expected to be about 15 or 16 contestants. Seasons 9 and 14 had 16 HouseGuests and season 15 will have that many or more. Will that allow for the Double Eviction Fast Forward Week in its competition?
Host, Julie Chen, tweeted this teaser message last week:
“The twist makes it a no-floater summer! #BigBrother.”
“Big Brother” 15 will air 89 days, the longest one ever. Season 1 holds the longest record with just 1 less day.
Here’s a breakdown of the schedule leading up to the premiere episode:
June 11 — Live feeds begin with exclusive pre-season content being aired between now and when “Big Brother 15″ launches.
June 18 or so — Cast list and bios and “Big Brother” house is revealed to fans. The site added that HouseGuests should be “firmly sequestered by now.”
June 22 or so — About the time HouseGuests will move into the house.
June 25 — Live Feeds early bird discountends.
The “Big Brother” winner takes home a $500,000 grand prize.
The show will air through summer Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday nights. Last season the show aired Thursday nights instead of Tuesday. The Wednesday live eviction episode will move to 8 to 9 p.m., ET/PT on July 17.
