Cast bios/pics/links and house pics are gathered at Hamsterwatch Forum: your one-stop shop, with easy access and no pop-up ads.
The season will be 99 days according to an ET feature. That's a week longer than last year, which had been blessedly reduced from the last few 98- and 99-day marathon seasons that came before it.
The June 27 premiere will include three competitions, not including HOH, that promise "game-changing power and two unprecedented punishments." There will also be a room this season (likely the spare Paris/Den upstairs) designated the BB App Store, where "America will get a chance to get the houseguests trending in order to award them powers or punishments." The App Store twist will have its TV debut on Sunday, July 1.
The house decor features a 22-foot tall rock climbing wall that may contribute to the injury tally, a circular seating area that rotates to access the rock wall, pink and blue bedrooms with sliding doors between them, and a poppies/fidget spinner room that will have transformed to some awful Have-not setup by the time the feeds start. The lounge has a kaleidoscope theme with a pin wall to make face/body/object impressions that push through to the kitchen side. The kitchen has a giant gummybear, and the bar/island and barstools are on a wheeled platform (more potential injuries). The HOH room has color-changing LED wall graphics, and the spycam has three new locations to watch plus a one-way intercom to holler at and/or summon their subjects. The bathroom now has four sinks plus framed, transparent Snapchat filter-ish graphics. The fishies are on the upstairs skydeck lounge this time (featuring miniature game consoles including a shady 2nd Place Paul "Friendship" game inside the aquarium), and foosball in place of the celebs' pool table.
The cast was leaked a day early, on June 17, by @EvelDick, and a fun time was had by all. BB fans are faster and better at turning up info than the FBI and CIA combined.
Dick at Night with Evel Dick Donato will be three shows a week again, with insightful, funny, raunchy, and/or "WTF are the hamsters doing" commentary with a rotating roster of alumni panels - check it out at EvelDick.com
Post-eviction shows will be hosted by BB Celeb runner-up Ross Mathews and winner Marissa Winokur, Fridays on Facebook Watch. Ross did the All Access interviews live, and he did the after-show with evictees for BB11, and he was superb at both of course - he keeps up with the feeds, not just the air shows!
The Amazing Race 31 began taping June 10 in Hermosa Beach, CA. Big Brother teams include Janelle Pierzina & Britney Haynes, Nicole Franzel & Victor Arroyo, and Rachel & Elissa Reilly. They took off for Japan that day, along with Survivors Eliza & Corrine, Bret & Chris, Rupert & Laura, and TAR alums Leo & Jamal, Becca & Floyd, Tyler & Korey, Art & JJ, and Colin & Christie.

Daily and Noteworthy EventsDay 1 Wednesday 6/20 Move-in
They taped the premiere early in the day, with a few dozen alums along with a stunt audience. There were representatives "from every season" at the taping (but not OTT, other than Jason who also repped BB17, or celebs). No twists were revealed and they didn't start the HOH or supplementary comps, but no vets moved in with the 16 rookies, so that's something. One or more could come along later but nearly the entire fanbase is hoping not. Bayleigh was the first through the doors so unless she breaks the 28-season US/Canada streak, she won't be winning the season.
For the friends and familiesSo your spouse/significant other, sibling or child or cousin, or buddy or neighbor or co-worker has been cast on Big Brother, what fun! But you're in for a few surprises
First, realize the TV editors' job isn't to make your person look good: they're making a TV show.. they might put your person's worst or dumbest moments on the show, and they often specialize in "out of context".. nothing will change that, you just need to accept it, as well as the fact that people watch the feeds 24/7.. feedsters will see your person at their best and their worst, and some will dwell on either extreme: whispered conversations, bad habits, grooming rituals - you name it, it will be analyzed, made fun of, obsessed about, idolized and ridiculed, and it'll live on the internet forever.. you just need to accept that too
Second, the vast majority of BB fans and feedsters are fun, funny, kind-hearted people, but nearly all BB fans and most sites, myself included, have some fun at the hamsters' expense (I call them hamsters because watching live feeds is like watching and poking at hamsters in a cage).. some folks can take it to vicious, hateful extremes and others can become obsessive, stalkerish fanatics, and social media has magnified that exponentially in the last several years.. if you try to bait or argue with the haters or let the obsessive ones get too close, you'll probably regret it
Third, not everyone is going to love your person, no matter how much you think they should.. every single hamster has both fans and haters.. even the most popular ones have hardcore haters, and the least popular ones always have some dedicated fans.. your person is going to come home after all this and be whoever they were before, and that's what matters.. until then, count to ten before engaging with viewers of either extreme
Mostly just have fun, bookmark and save things you come across for your person when they get home, and try to relax - even/especially if they're about to be evicted.. they all survive
But don't just take my word for it, read it from three who have been there: see For the friends and loved ones by BB15 Spencer Clawson's girlfriend Marilyn, about watching her guy on one of BB USA's most volatile seasons, Advice to houseguests's moms & dads by BB17 winner Steve Moses's mom Kathleen, and What it's really like to be the Mother of an All-Star by BB6/7/14 Janelle Pierzina's mom Ann.. ongoing thanks to all of them for sharing their thoughts
