First Week in the Big Brother House
The celebrities have already been in the Big Brother house several days before the official season begins on CBS. In that time period, several major things have happened.
It seems as though the celebrities arrived in the house last weekend. They were allowed to drink alcohol on Sunday evening while they were locked inside. Activities began on Monday, January 14, a full week before the reality show is set to premiere for fans to see rather. Viewers with CBS All Access were able to see what happened on the Live Feeds.
According to the 15-minute live feed, the house was already divided between a group downstairs in the kitchen working on lunch and another group upstairs around the pool table.
The short teaser might have revealed a relationship between the two male actors Jonathan Bennett and Joey Lawrence because of their careers and common interests. The two actors appear to have earmarked Olympian Lolo Jones as their first target.
First Head of Household
One major event has already taken place. Olympian swimmer Ryan Lochte is the first Head of Household. However, he has not nominated anyone for eviction. The Power of Veto competition hasn't taken place on the live feeds yet.
Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was a contestant on Dancing with the Stars after he was involved in a scandal at the Rio Olympics in 2016. At the time, he said he went on the dance competition show to repair his image.
Now almost three years later, he says his agent forced him into appearing on the reality show for the same reason.
Sharing Information About Themselves
In order to form any relationship, people must share information about themselves. Even though the contestants might know something about their opponents, they will learn more since they are living together 24 hours a day as they eat and sleep under the same roof and engage in activities together.
Along with forming relationships, the houseguests have begun to reveal information about themselves or their jobs outside the house. Anthony Scaramucci, former White House communications director, reportedly spoke about his 10-day employment in the White House as a member of the President Donald Trump's administration.
It is so interesting that Scaramucci will be in the Big Brother house longer than he was in the White House.
The reality show has a central theme every season, and the house is decorated based on that theme. The theme for this season has not been officially announced, but host Julie Chen posted a picture on Instagram hinting at what the theme might be for this season of Celebrity Big Brother.
In Julie's photo, a desk, pen, a registration book, and a golden lamp are seen. These symbols remind people of registering into a hotel. This could be a way of CBS saying the celebrities from different places will living together during the three-week competition.
The host said there will be other clues about the theme before the first episode on CBS.
