What to Expect from Big Brother Season 22 Episode 1?
In the second edition of All-Stars, a group of people comprising winners, runner ups, popular, or fan-favorite contestants from previous seasons will reenter the BB house and live together for nearly 100 days. Some contestants will try to use the second chance as a shot at redemption, while other contestants might want to prove something else. However, there is one thing each of the Houseguests will have their eyes on – the grand cash prize of $500,000. While living under the same roof, albeit, in a swanky house, we can expect the contestants to offer the viewers, the trademark ‘Big Brother’ drama that will transpire 24/7 inside the house.
Like every season, 94 HD cameras and 113 microphones will capture and record every move of the contestants, ensuring the fans that they won’t miss out on anything. The network released a press release revealing the measures they have laid down to prevent the contestants from contracting the COVID-19 virus. “Houseguests will undergo a quarantine period prior to production and will be tested several times prior to entering the House. Once inside, they will be tested weekly during the season and have no contact with any crew members, and all supplies delivered will be disinfected,” the network stated.
The host Julie Chen Moonves will be back to reprise her hosting duties. It has been reported that the live show will be devoid of any studio audience, this time. Also, the staff and crew members will be tested regularly. Along with wearing PPE kits, on-location quarantining, and working in a pod, the crew will take additional measures to prevent any transmission. The official cast will be announced in the live move-in premiere but there have been speculations that the twenty-second season can feature Janelle Pierzina, Kaycee Clark, Nicole Anthony, Tyler Crispen, Josh Martinez, and Da’Vonne Rogers. Well, here’s hoping that your favorite contestant makes the cut!
