‘Big Brother 22’: Will Houseguests Sleep in the Same Room for the All-Star Season?
Some of the best moments of Big Brother are the houseguests sneaking into rooms to come up with alliances. The bedrooms also are where most of hookups take place. Will that still happen since the pandemic will change some things about the game for Big Brother 22?
‘Big Brother 22’ cast will be full of familiar faces
This season’s cast will be full of alums. It’s going to be an all-star cast and fans will be able to watch them move in on premiere night.
The cast had to be tested for COVID-19 before officially making it on the show. Sadly, some favorites who were expected to join were reportedly turned away because they tested positive.
The cast will continue to be tested throughout the run of the season. However, they all will be isolating anyway since they will stay in the Big Brother house unless they’re evicted.
The tour of the house was released
Fans were able to get a glimpse of the house ahead of the season premiere. A video touring the house was released on CBS.
The living room is decorated with wall art full of illuminated pegs. There are also stars all over the room in wall art, sculptures, and furniture.
The kitchen is decorated with a mural full of previous houseguests including season 10 winner Dan Gheesling, season 16 winner Derrick Levasseur and seasons 3 and 7 legend Danielle Reyes. The words “Dan’s Funeral” is also seen on the wall.
The lounge is decorated to honor showmances. There are pillows that read “Jody” for Cody Nickson and Jessica Graf from Big Brother 19; “Jeff and Jordan” for Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd from Big Brother 11; “Brenchel” in reference to Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas from Big Brother 12; “Swayleigh” for Bayleigh Dayton and Chris “Swaggy C” Williams of Big Brother 20; and “Tangela” for Tyler Crispen and Angela Rummans from Big Brother 20.
The bathroom is full of rubber ducks on the walls. One bedroom has different houseguests as superheroes in the wallpaper. There is another bedroom decorated with black-and-white photos of former houseguests.
The houseguests will still share rooms
There are other precautions to keep the cast safe this season. There won’t be a live audience anymore. Their groceries will also be disinfected and brought to them.
The Big Brother house won’t completely change. Houseguests will be sharing rooms, which means the houseguests can still use them to meet up and strategize.
They won’t be in contact with the crew, and the crew will produce the show in separate areas. “Everyone is working in a pod, and those pods basically stay together and don’t cross-mingle with any other pods,” executive producer Rich Meehan told Entertainment Tonight. “No one is living on the compound. So people are going home at the end of their shift.”
It looks like the show will mostly look the same to the audience. Soon fans will see the houseguests react to the newly designed house.
