What To Expect Every Week on Big Brother Over The Top

I know everyone has a lot of questions regarding the upcoming Big Brother Over The Top fall season so here I am to answer just a few to the best of my ability:

Hey Colette, will the 24/7 feeds really be 24/7?

According to CBS All Access, it will be the same feeds you know and love, only with NO SCHEDULED BLACKOUTS. You'll still have 4 cameras plus a Quad view. There will also be rewind and highlight capabilities as well as the opportunity to Flashback to your favorite moments with searchable archives.

Hey Colette, what if I missed a bunch of stuff and want to catch up?

The easiest and most logical answer is that this is what the Big Brother Gossip Show is for, you silly goose! We recap all the events - with clips - so you are never lost. Premiere episode October 1st! After that, find us on iTunes and Stitcher.

There will also be, what they are calling, a "Weekday Replay." This will be a quick recap of all the crucial moments that happened throughout the day. The Weekday Replay will be available Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT.

Hey Colette, so are there episodes are not?

A rundown of the week's events, followed by the Live Eviction Ceremony will air on Wednesdays at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT. Shortly after the episode airs, it will be available in its entirety on demand.

Hey Colette, will I ever see Chenbot again?

Yes! Every Thursday afternoon, Julie Chen will interview that week's evicted houseguest (times will vary).

Hey Colette, what in the sam hell is a "Safety Ceremony?"

Live on Saturdays and Sundays at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PM PT, the HOH will reveal the houseguests who are SAFE for that week. The live reveal of the nominations will be on Sunday evenings.

Hey Colette, I remember you saying on an episode of the Big Brother Gossip Show that if you could change one thing about Big Brother it would be that we would get live access to Diary Room sessions. As you are wise and all knowing, by chance, did they listen to you?

YES! Yes they did! Can you believe it? For the first time ever (you're welcome), fans will get a live look into the confessionals on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 PM ET/8:00 PM PT.

Well, I hope this helps a bit. I know it's confusing and new and weird and we're all like, "What the hell is about to happen here?" I think the first week might take some getting used to, but after that we'll all fall into our groove. I hope you're ready with that CBS ALL ACCESS subscription. BBOTT premieres September 28th!

  1. I apologize if you have already answered this on the show - I have about 30 minutes left to listen to - but I am assuming that when the HG get voted out, they go home, and therefore can be a part of the rest of the game? Do you think this will affect the players down the road? And do you think they have thought about it at all? I haven't heard anyone talk about this, but I have been traveling and have missed quite a bit that isn't discussed on your podcast. Enjoy your commentary very much - Thanks!

    1. What do you mean they can be "a part of the rest of the game?" I don't understand the question. Do you mean that they can nominate someone through the online voting like the rest of the us? They're just 1 person. What can they really do? I guess they could influence people on social media. Is that what you mean? Like let's say Cornbread gets evicted and then goes on Twitter and tells everyone to go after Jason. I haven't really thought about it. I honestly don't think they'd have much power at all. I don't think it'll affect the other players.

      I have no idea if I answered your questions. LOL I tried!

  2. Yes, you did. I guess I was not clear - sorry! Yes, I was talking about their influence through social media once they leave. You're right, I am not sure how far their reach would extend. I love the idea of the united bbgossip show nomination!
