Host Julie Chen Moonves Teases ‘Drama’
Host Julie Chen Moonves teases the fast-paced drama that comes with the truncated celebrity edition of “Big Brother.”
“I lost 45 minutes of sleep because I was watching the drama about who gets to take a shower. It was right after the first challenge we gave them,” she told Parade.com.
She added, “I’ve also seen deals that in the first few days that were talked about, suddenly are not being talked about. I won’t use the words not being honored. But things shift. They turn on a dime in the ‘Big Brother’ house. I’ve been there so many times on live show night, where they’re like, ‘Oh, the house is flipping!’ It’s ‘expect the unexpected’ times ten.”
Miesha Tate Is Rumored to Be the First Head of Household
Miesha Tate is rumored to have won the first Head of Household competition for the season, according to BigBrotherNetwork.com.
Host Julie Chen Moonves told Parade.com the first challenge is an endurance competition, though it has not been confirmed to be for the Head of Household.
Each week, the houseguests will battle it out in a Head of Household competition. Whoever wins can nominate two other houseguests for elimination. The previous week’s winner is ineligible to play.
The ‘Big Brother’ House Is Decorated Like a Swiss Chalet

Plus, for the first time ever, the spiral staircase is completely redesigned, and the house features amenities like a full-sized sauna and a snowy patio complete with a gas fireplace and hot tub.”
