Celebrity Big Brother is all set to return with a new season on CBS next month. The show is an adaptation of the franchise Big Brother and has been highly appreciated by fans for two seasons.
The celebrity version will follow a similar format to the original reality show. The official synopsis reads:
“Celebrities live together in a house outfitted with cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day.”
A total of 11 celebrities, known as houseguests, will stay together under video surveillance. Previously, Broadway actress Marissa Jaret Winokur (Season 1) and singer Tamar Braxton (Season 2) won the reality series.
