Celebrity Big Brother US spoilers indicate that host Julie Chen and her crew are hitting the ground running to make sure that this season of the long-running reality competition series will be the most successful one yet. CBS execs are hoping to sign on huge names in the entertainment world to ensure that their celebrity edition of the series will win the network ratings competition this season.
According to a new report, the upcoming CBBUS season will be shorter than the normal ones. As a result, there won’t be a full 90-day filming schedule. Instead, the season is expected to last about six weeks. There’s also the possibility that CBBUS might run during the Winter Olympics. If it happens, this will most likely be a ratings nightmare for CBS as many viewers will be tuning in to the games and tuning out from CBBUS.
Yet, Celebrity Big Brother US fans will have an opportunity to subscribe to this season’s Live Feed. It’s part of CBS’ All Access package for $5.99 a month with a one-week free trial that can be canceled at anytime.
Meanwhile, reports indicate that Spencer Pratt’s sister Stephanie Pratt is interested in joining the show. She made it no secret late last summer that she is looking for an outlet or a reality television show to join just so she can tell the public the real truth about her relationship with her brother and his wife, Heidi Montag.
So far producers have made no comments on whether Stephanie will join or Spencer and Heidi for that matter. If that weren’t enough, insiders have also been hinting that Blac Chyna might be looking to join the show, too. And if she does, there’s a chance that she’ll be spilling any and all of the Kardashian family secrets that she has.
And while Julie Chen has said that she would love to get a few A-list names on the show this season, many critics know better than to hold their breath. There’s a stronger possibility that cable television celebrities and stars looking for a paycheck to cash will be joining the cast instead.
Celebrity Big Brother US is expected to debut on CBS in January. In the meantime, don’t forget to check back with CDL for all the latest news, updates and spoilers on Celebrity Big Brother US and all of your favorite primetime television shows right here.
