The big day has arrived! Tonight on CBS the premiere of Big Brother 23 starts our season and summer of fun when sixteen all-new Houseguests move in and take over the BB23 house for their chance at a half-million-dollar prize. It all starts tonight at 8PM ET/PT with a 90-minute event.
Unlike most recent seasons these Houseguests still haven’t moved in and just like last year, we’ll see it all play out live when Julie meets the HGs on stage and sends them in for a quick start to the new twist. That new twist is going to feel familiar with the return of teams and captains with two men and two women making up each of the four groups for our first episode. Where it goes from there is anyone’s guess.
Tonight’s show should kick off with host Julie Chen welcoming us back and taking us through the new house design with its BB Beach Club theme. Next we’ll meet the HGs in their back home key reveals and soon they’ll be heading inside in groups of four to compete in the first challenge. Each group’s winner will become the Captain who will then pick three more HGs to join his or her team. I’m guessing the idea here is to divide and conquer the HGs in a way to try and avoid another mega-alliance setting up in Week 1 to steamroll the house for the next ten weeks. Fingers crossed.
