The first (short) season of Celebrity Big Brother starts February 7th on CBS.

This is both the Spoiler and Episode discussion thread, so anything in the episodes or on the live feeds will be fair game!

It's the winter TV season, which means it's time for Big Brother?... Not since Big Brother 9 has the U.S. edition of the series aired in Winter, and we're now returning with a shortened "celebrity" version which will be airing against the Olympics. Who are these celebrities? Unclear, probably look to the casts of Dancing with the Stars to see the caliber of people brought in. This could include some former Houseguests who gained other nominal fame in TV, like Austin Matelson (BB 17) or Jessie Godderz (BB 10, 11), or Ariana Grande's brother Frankie Grande (BB 16, UK Celebrity Big Brother 18). Other celebs like Lance Bass have expressed love for the series and might be a possibility. The international versions of BB have made the celebrity edition a staple of their Big Brother rotation, this will be the first for the U.S..

What is Big Brother? Big Brother (BB) is the original and superior source of 24/7 voyeurism on American televisions. The weekly CBS show features footage taken from live feeds of the Big Brother House. What's the big deal about the house? It's a reality game show which forces 14+ people to live together in a house during the summer, all while competing for power to kick other people out of the house and thus out of the game. All with the goal of being the final House Guest selected as the best player and worthy of cash prize.

The 80+ cameras in the BB house capture all manner of insanity and "reality" when it comes to the House Guests. Meaning what you see on TV is barely half the story. Massive amounts of plotting and scheming are never aired, allowing the TV editors to craft whatever story they want for the viewing audience. Only the feed watchers or readers get the best take on what's really happening in the house.

Interested in seeing the true story of Celebrity Big Brother 1?

Various sites provide recaps and running updates submitted by viewers of what's going on:

Big Brother Network
HamsterWatch
Jokers Updates
Online Big Brother

CBS also will provide live streaming HD coverage through CBS All Access.

http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/live_feed/

If your cable provider offers Pop you'll be able to watch "Big Brother After Dark" for two hours every night from 12:00-2:00 AM ET/PT seven days a week. This is another source for live feed viewing, sometimes offering different angles or a better viewing experience for that time window.

http://poptv.com/big_brother_after_dark

The official website also provides live feed clips of content not seen on TV.

http://www.cbs.com/shows/celebrity-big-brother/

FAQ:

Q - I bought CBS All Access and all I see on the Live Feeds is fish/trivia?
A - Though it is billed as 24/7, the live feeds will not run during several specific instances: Any time a competition is ongoing, any time nominations are held, legal requirements and/or for control booth interaction. Legal requirements can include when the houseguests start to sing, the HGs talk about a family member by name who didn't sign a release or some other legally grey area. Generally the booth will cut in to warn the HGs or provide some guidance for some ongoing issue.

Q - Is it even worth it to spend $$$ on the feeds?
A - With Big Brother now added to CBS All Access, in addition to the feeds you'll now also have access to every episode of the U.S. edition of Big Brother, all for $5.99 per month. If you're wanting access to that library, it might help your decision. Otherwise also note that it appears the purchase is a recurring charge, so you'll need to cancel when the season is over.

Q - Can the feeds really make that big a difference in how you see an HG?
A - Ask anyone who watched previous seasons. Often times controversial statements regarding gender/race/sexuality never see the light of day on the broadcast show. Instead they are relegated to the live feeds only, and serve as the only way to really see what type of people the house guests are.

Yeah, right in line with "celebrity" status for Dancing with the Stars and Apprentice. The fact that several of them were on those very shows goes a long way to showing how poo poo the celebrity talent pool is for these shows.

shannon elizabeth used to be a regular panelist on evel dick's survivor podcast years back so if this isnt a Fans Vote style season i'd probably mark her as a favorite for having some idea of how to play. chuck lidell will be okay if they let him sneak in a bit of coke. i dont know any of the other celebs besides ron artest.

Shannon's a pro poker player, and seems like a nice person. Hopefully she is good at reading people and manipulating them.

These people were on Celebrity Apprentice and I have zero interest in seeing them again because FOR FUCKS SAKE CBS could you not find some interesting celebs who haven't already been in a stupid reality show.

Omarosa
Brandi
Mark McGrath
Keisha

These celebrities (?) are complete unknowns to me:

Marissa Jarret Winokur
James Maslow from Big Time Rush
TV host Ross Mathews
some pro sports guy (not Chuck Liddell, the other guy).

So by the process of elimination I'm rooting for...Miss Colombia 2015?! No that can't be right. Go Shannon!

EDIT: is it possible there are some bigger names that are still being kept hidden?

Just a heads up to everyone - the new season of BB Canada is going to premier immediately after Celeb BB ends (9pm Eastern Time Im guessing) March 7th on Global. I thought the last season was pretty sleazy and also compelling so my hopes are pretty high that itll be a good palate cleanser if Celeb BB is a travesty.

Jesus. They really did dump some money into it for this brief season.

Biggest House takeaways compared to previous years:
  • Backyard has been divided 30/70. The 30 is the area nearest the door and will be a walled in "outside" consisting of hang out couches and washer/dryer area. Rest of yard is permanent comp area which will allow them to change stuff without limiting their ability to go outside.
  • Parlor got a big bar-like makeover.
  • HOH bed is gigantic.
  • Smaller pool table is now on the second floor landing.
  • Second floor secret room has been made into an exercise room.

Thankfully coming out of the interviews, we got some BB fans of varying degrees in the house. Both Ross and Shannon are legit fans of the show going back years. Ross has done recaps going back quite a ways and Shannon has guested on Evil Dick's show several times doing feed recaps. Mark also watched the show last season. Marissa has watched several seasons and also watched BBOTT(!?)

Ive never seen any other seasons of BBCan so I cant comment on those but last season seemed to be pretty mean in tone a lot of the time. Lots of personal attacks and attempts to bait the other house guests by crossing the line. Generally on the American BB the arguments stem from gameplay disputes and get into character attacks no doubt, but the last BBCan seemed to have an unprecedented amount of time spent on house guests ragging on each others careers/lives/families. Ika in particular got a lot of air time and liked to comment on how ugly, fat, boring, unlikable and underemployed Jackie was relentlessly.

And Neda's edit was kind of sleazily manipulative.

STAC Goat

Butt first, let's
check the feeds.


Ika is loving mean. She got a positive take her first time through because she ended up getting screwed over by the bigger villains of the season and not only had the AMAZING letter scene but also Sabrina falsely accused her of threatening her and trying to shove her down the stairs and made such a big deal of it that BB had to review the tapes and announce to the cast that Sabrina was lying (which is what tanked Sabrina's game).

But before all that she was this cruel and evil mean girl who made Heather's life absolutely miserable and said some really heinous poo poo. Its just that she was saying that stuff with Sabrina and Neda and while Neda ended up feeling bad, becoming friends with Heather, and apologizing Ika ended up becoming the target of Sabrina and just became this funny victim.

But man... she's loving evil.

Edit: But it provided us this.

Well Im pretty pleased with the 1st episode. Theyre playing 3 eps in a row so hopefully they develop a narrative that extends beyond the "girls vs boys" thing but ultimately who cares - Im a sucker for BB. Whoever pinpointed Shannon Elizabeth as a sleeper favourite to win may have been on to something. Survivor begins Feb 28 in case anyone missed the promos during BB so the next couple of months should be a boon for reality shows on CBS.

Omarosa looking supportive and strategic? We'll see how she holds up when she faces some adversity. But she seems good so far.

Like Teek said, Omarosa has been shockingly decent so far; she even looked good in the feeds.

Speaking of feeds, (no noms or anything in here, just the shenanigans) Brandi got completely wasted last night. During charades, for 'Jumanji,' she mimed a large nose to try to get people to say 'Jew.' She later attempted to gently caress a butternut squash.
