Are you ready to meet the contestants of Big Brother Season 24?
The 24th season of the reality TV program Big Brother, which offers a $750,000 grand prize, has announced the identities of the 16 contestants.
The executive producer, Allison Grodner, told US Weekly last year that they are constantly seeking a broad collection of people to put in the house, different in personality, backgrounds, where they're from, and everything. The network has previously pledged to cast at least 50% BIPOC.
The theme of the show is summer and is called "the BB Fest," with Julie Chen Moonves hosting the show and revealing to US Weekly that every week throughout the summer, the audience is going to see different themes like music fests, comedy fests, and renaissance fests, but her favorite and she thinks the theme that is going to be everyone’s favorite is Zing Fest. Julie added that the houseguests are going to have their own unique competition.
Julie Chen Moonves shared that the big twists and turns related to eviction night are that maybe the person everyone thinks is going to be evicted may turn out not to be evicted, and without giving too much spoiler, she added that the contestants are going to know more about this the moment it happens.
The host added that the house where the contestants will be staying is called "BB Motel" which has a mid-century Palm Springs atmosphere and added that one can check in, but can't check out before adding that one really don't want to check out from BB Motel. Julie said that no one who comes on the show desires to evicted but rather desires to remain in the BB Motel. This year has that same overall vibe. Retro.
