A lot of Celebrity Big Brother fans are surprised that CBS has decided to air the show during the same time the 2018 Winter Olympics will be broadcast on rival network NBC. There’s a strong chance that viewers might end up tuning off CBBUS to watch the games on NBC. Yet, CBBUS producers are so confident that fans will be watching the show that they are secretly lining up a shocking list of housemates who will be competing for Head of Household and Power of Veto to ultimately win the show.
Host Julie Chen even said, “Game of Thrones likes to say ‘winter is coming.’ Game of Thrones likes to say ‘winter is coming.’ Well, guess what? With winter, comes the unexpected… ‘Celebriity Big Brother,’ baby!’”
There will be three two-hour episodes (expected to air Friday, February 9, Friday February 16 and again on Friday February 23). The season finale will be on Sunday, February 25 at 8pm EST.
