Daily Feeds Recaps

Pre-season - July 2020

After several months of COVID-19 shutdowns and headlines, and the usual late-June season start time coming and going with no word from CBS, they finally unofficially confirmed the all-stars rumors on July 20 with a short preview of BB All-stars merchandise in the CBS Store. It didn't last long but it was enough to get the fanbase excited, and to kick off the 2020 Goofs Tally.

Later that day I heard from an inside source that the CBS premiere was scheduled for August 5, which wouldn't give them much time to virus-sequester everyone for two weeks and have them move in 8-9 days before the premiere, but maybe they'll reduce that too-long first week without us. I've also heard the staff has made many adjustments as to how they do things, with many more people planning to work from home rather than on-site, and I wouldn't be surprised if we get throwbacks to older style, less elaborate comps than we've seen the past several seasons. As with everything, all dates and plans are subject to change depending on virus numbers as well as any potential state and local mandates for workplaces.

They finally broke their silence on July 23 with a press release announcing the August 5 two-hour live premiere, and weekly schedule of 8pm Sundays, Wednesdays, Thursdays. They also detailed their virus precautions, which included pre-show testing and quarantine for hamsters; plus pre-show testing, weekly testing, daily screening, PPE, and team work "pods" for staff. They also said all deliveries (such as pantry restocks) would be disinfected, and said there would be a COVID-19 compliance officer on staff to ensure guidelines are followed.

Later that day they released a new press pic of Julie and her occasional sleeves in a leafy, shady, garden setting that could be somewhere in her backyard.

After many, many cast rumors and related gossip, TV Guide (owned by ViacomCBS) posted the most-mentioned names on Thursday night, July 29, on a cast list template for the new season, but the next day, the @CBSBigBrother twitter account said the cast reveal would happen on the premiere along with them moving in live. So now we know, and we wait.

The rumored names, and TV Guide's list, are as follows. A number of them were also included with Dish Network's listings guide, in a too-random-to-be-coincidental grouping, in my opinion.

Amber Borzotra - not on later rumor lists
Bayleigh Dayton
Christmas Abbott
Cody Calafiore
Daniele Donato
Danielle Reyes - doing a BB22 recap show with BB3 Jason Guy
David Alexander
Da'Vonne Rogers
Enzo Palumbo
Ian Terry
Janelle Pierzina
Josh Martinez - may have failed virus test
Kaycee Clark - may have failed virus test
Kaysar Ridha
Keesha Smith
Kevin Campbell
Nicole Anthony
Nicole Franzel
Memphis Garrett
Tyler Crispen

Pre-season - August 2020

As of August 3, there's still no word as to when feeds will start, whether after the live premiere or the following week, but sign up for All Access now now to be ready, and use promo code PLAY before August 16 for a free month.

There's also no word about After Dark, but things aren't looking good on that front. If it doesn't return, it'll be a big hit for many, but especially for BB Twitter if we lose the owl or person behind the @BBADOrwell account.

They did announce a "high stakes" first night comp and "an ending that will twist up the game like never before" along with other non-specific superlatives. And house pics were finally released: see them here and here, along with a video tour with remote-Julie.

They finally announced on August 4 that feeds would begin after the west coast airing of the premiere on August 5, making this the first time we've had feeds from move-in day (night) ever, other than OTT. That means we won't miss the pivotal first days that set up the season - fantastic! sign up for All Access now now to be ready, and use promo code PLAY before August 16 for a free month. Sadly, there was no mention of After Dark in the annual press release where it's usually mentioned, and still nothing on Pop's posted schedule or various providers' cable guides, so it looks like Orwell's out.


Ratings - Virus edition

Official pics and bios will be posted here when cast is revealed, followed by individual stats and snarky comments when feeds get underway


 
Hooray for a season at all, in the midst of this global pandemic, and while I never want any vets, I can understand why they went with all vets this summer as it eliminated all the travel and meetings involved in the usual casting process. But super big ups and double hooray for giving us a live move-in and first night feeds! We've never had that, other than OTT. Most seasons are pretty much set up in that pivotal first week and for once, we won't have to piece together what happened from skewed edits and feeds retells. As far as how things will unfold - old school versus new, males versus females, existing alliances and grudges, we'll just have to wait and see. But after a very long wait, no communications, and many unknowns, we're finally starting at what would be the halfway point in most seasons. Production is using extra anti-virus precautions and we can just hope nobody in the cast or crew gets sick, or that California and/or LA don't close down businesses again, vaporing BB22 unfinished like happened with BB Canada 8.
