Other NewsCelebrities are back! CBS premiere is January 21 at 8pm and feeds will start the next night. Like last year, we had several short leaks during the oh-so-important first week!
Along with a zillion flying rumors, we had pretty good intel that former WWE wrestler Natalie Eva Marie and former OJ Simpson houseguest/witness Kato Kaelin would be among those moving in and it turned out they are. Scroll down to Ratings section for the full cast.
Important If your DVR is set to automatically record every season of BB, it won't record this one. You'll need to add "Big Brother: Celebrity Edition" as a new and separate show. "Big Brother After Dark" seems to be using the same title but check your DVR to be sure if you plan to record it.
RIP Big Brother UK Both celeb and civilian versions have ended, at least on Channel 5.
It's become increasingly difficult to cover year-round BB with ever-dwindling feeds signups, so I'm considering CBB2 a trial run for the year, and my sales will be a factor in deciding whether I continue to cover BB summers or not. I realize there are many worthy affiliate sites out there and it can be hard to decide who should get your signup click. Remember you can also support this site (at no extra cost to you) by using my Amazon portal for any Amazon purchases anytime, USA or Canada. Thank you!

Day 1 Wednesday January 16
They moved in early in the day, with a live (paid) audience in attendance. Ryan was called to the stage first but when he entered with the rest of the first group, he held the door open - likely more out of politeness than due to any knowledge of the first-in curse. Tamar entered the habitat first. They held the HOH comp later that day with a different (paid) audience in attendance.
Day 2 Thursday January 17
We had our first sneak peek of feeds at 2pm Pacific/BB time, for 15 minutes. They seemed relaxed for the most part, with Ricky, Kato, Jonathan, Ryan hanging out and playing pool on the skybridge, and Tom and Dina cooking up tuna steaks downstairs. It sounded like Ryan won the first HOH as Kato made a joke about having had a key made so he wouldn't have to keep asking Ryan for it. All of them were glimpsed here or there except Anthony, but he showed up near the end of the 15-minute peek after being in Diary. Joey talked about making lists of things they need as they run out of food etc - good luck with that. We're likely to get more of these 15-minute peeks before feeds officially start, so be sure you're signed up for All Access and stay tuned!
Day 3 Friday January 18
Sneak peek #2 gave us 15 more minutes at 2pm Pacific/BB time. It was dominated by Jonathan very loudly leading a workout session on the balcony with Lolo, Natalie, Ricky, Tamar, Anthony, Ryan. Meanwhile Joey, Tom, Kato, Kandi, Dina were downstairs in the kitchen, snacking and commenting about the workout, with Kato and Tom goofing and joking. Veto comp hadn't happened yet, and we didn't get any confirmation as to who was nominated (rats) but Dina seemed a bit disconnected to me, and Kato make a joke about "namaste, I'm staying!" for whatever that's worth. Joey commented that the downstairs bathroom needed cleaning, and both he and Kato made some comments about proper workout techniques - with several pro athletes and two Olympians in the habitat.
Day 6 Monday January 21
After a weekend with no peeks, we got another 15 minutes at 11am Pacific/BB time. Kato and Natalie confirmed they're not allowed to "talk shop" during these times (boo), but we did learn three are nominated, though not which three. Several were working out, Anthony got back into suit and tie to do a Diary "pickup," Ricky talked about leaving football and traveling in Asia, and Tom was encouraging Dina to talk about her daughters' careers. It sounded like Joey/Ryan, Lolo/Ricky/Tamar, and Dina/Kandi/Tom may be working together, game-wise. Much more will become clear tonight with the first premiere at 8pm Eastern, another show Tuesday at 8pm, and then feeds will start for real at 9pm Pacific/midnight Eastern on Tuesday night.
Premiere The first group was Ryan, Tamar, Kato, Natalie Eva Marie, Tom, Lolo. Ryan was first but he held the door for Tamar to be first inside. Not a good move for a "superfan" but she might be tv-only and unaware of the curse - oops. The second group was Joey, Kandi, Jonathan, Dina, Ricky, Anthony. Their first HOH comp was Drinks On Us, played in "Power Pairs". Perched and swinging on swings, one person filled a "champagne" glass from a fountain and poured into their partner's glass, who then had to dump into a giant glass at the other end of the yard. The first pair to fill their glass won. Ryan's name was randomly drawn first, and each person then picked the next. Pairings were Ryan/Jonathan, Tamar/Kandi, Joey/Ricky, Lolo/Tom, Dina/Anthony. Kato and Natalie Eva Marie sat out and thus received first eviction immunity. Ryan and Jonathan won, and battled each other for HOH, which will air on Tuesday's show. The loser is automatically nominated.
Day 7 Tuesday January 22
"Premiere #2" gave us the new show intro and move-in recap, and Ryan and Jonathan proceeded to their battle of the block comp to determine the first HOH, Blockbusters. They had to cross the yard on ziplines and knock down all the blocks in two movie posters featuring themselves as The Nominee. Ryan won, meaning Jonathan automatically went on the block.
Along the way, tentative alliances were formed including a big one spearheaded by Jonathan with himself, Ryan, Kandi, Lolo, Natalie Eva Marie, Tamar. Joey was asked to join but declined, saying he didn't believe in alliances - oookay. Within that mega group were sub-alliances of Jonathan/Ryan/Lolo/Natalie, Kandi/Tamar/Lolo/Natalie, Jonathan/Ryan, Kandi/Tamar, and Lolo/Natalie. Later Anthony/Kato/Tom agreed to team up together. Ryan wanted to nominate Dina and Anthony but Jonathan talked him out of putting up Dina due to their history, and Ryan ended up nominating Anthony and Tom.
We also had a segment featuring Ryan's lap pool.
Feeds began right on time, with some of the guys playing cards and some of the girls bikini'ing in the new corner HOH bath. But the big news came out before long: Anthony was gone! Tamar said something about "he tried it" but no details came out. They commented that his picture on the wall wasn't grayed out and they wondered if Ryan would have to nominate someone else, so it probably happened today. We'll know sooner or later.
Their back corridor opened around 10pm and Ryan got into his pool and started swimming. Between the machinery and the splashing, it's LOUD. It finally came out that Kato won the veto, but they hadn't had their meeting yet - he plans to use it on Tom. Tamar and Kandi got into a tense discussion about fame, relevance, and mutual acquaintances, and Tamar got heated in retelling it to Ricky, and later to others, calling Kandi "shady as hell." Tamar ranted around a bit and went to Diary to talk it out (thus providing drama clips for CBS).
Later Lolo and Natalie said Kandi vs Tamar had been a nightly event for the past few days and then it blows over, and Ricky and Joey both reassured Kandi that tonight's hadn't been her fault. Ricky also told Lolo and Natalie that Kandi hadn't done anything wrong to set off tonight's drama, and they agreed they needed to reel Tamar in for their games and alliance, but they weren't sure if they could. There were a lot of mentions from Tamar about voting out Kandi on Friday, but I'm unclear if she went on the block to replace Anthony, or if that was wishful thinking/looking ahead by Tamar. We'll find out.
Clarity finally came, more or less, when Lolo and Natalie Eva Marie studied their days and events thus far. They were confused what day it is now and unclear about some events but we were able to piece it all together, more or less. Ryan nominated Anthony and Tom on Day 3 (not the first night as the show implied). Ricky won the first veto comp "Giddy Up" on Day 4, and on Day 5 he did not use it. On Day 6, they found out Anthony was a mole and "not a real player" and he left. Ryan nominated Kandi in his place, and Kato won the second veto comp which had a Scaramucci press conference theme. Anthony's story doesn't really add up as all his pre-show press indicated he was very much ready to play, and BB would surely have told us if he was a mole or saboteur, plus he followed a bunch of us last year - odd thing to do for a two-episode cameo. But regardless, he's gone, and we'll move forward without him. Tamar and Kandi each did retells of their drama, and Tom suggested to Kandi that maybe Tamar was playing up being "the arguing character" of the show, and maybe Kandi should nod, smile, and not engage with her for the sake of her (Kandi's) game. Kandi and Dina said they "can't be fake," so more drama's likely to come along.
We learned/confirmed there are upstairs and downstairs Diary Rooms this time, they all have weekly laundry service (Ryan's pool probably took up the washer/dryer spot), and they have a white noise machine but there are no fishies, and apparently no night vision greenlight cams.
Day 8 Wednesday January 23
The pre-veto meeting scramble was more scrambled than usual, as Ryan's renom options were severely limited. They said Ricky was exempt (even though the veto process he won was completed - he didn't use it), and Natalie had immunity since she sat out the first comp with second veto winner Kato. That left Dina, Joey, Lolo, Tamar as Ryan's only options. Jonathan didn't want Dina to go up (but Joey told her it might be her), and Ryan didn't want to put up Lolo (sounded like it wouldn't help his Reputation Repair mission to go after a fellow Olympian). Tamar was allied with Ryan (but so was Kandi, and he put her up), and Joey, who doesn't believe in alliances, is a fellow bro/jock and Ryan's workout buddy. Tom did some "I'm just here for the experience and exposure" shmoozing, but I don't buy that for a minute: he's here to play.
Meanwhile Anthony turned up in Switzerland today, speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos. He mentioned that he was supposed to be on our little show, but didn't provide any details as to what the heck is going on. It'll all become clear in time, hopefully. For now, his picture on the photo wall finally went to black & white.
Kato used his veto on Tom as planned, and Ryan went against bro-code after all and put up Joey in his place. Hamsters scurried around in groups of twos and threes, speculating if one or two would be evicted Friday, and discussing vote scenarios and future plans, like they do. Tamar, who attended the meeting in her lip prints onesie from last night, took to her bed and sobbed undercovers. And on we go!
