CBS Announces Big Brother 7 Will Be All-Stars Version 4/12/06
IT'S YOUR SUMMER, AMERICA! "BIG BROTHER" RETURNS WITH A FIRST EVER "ALL-STAR" VERSION; IN ANOTHER FIRST, AMERICA WILL DECIDE WHICH HOUSEGUESTS MOVE INTO THE "BIG BROTHER" HOUSE
The Seventh Installment, Hosted By Julie Chen, Will Premiere This Summer
CBS announced today that the seventh installment of BIG BROTHER will return this summer with an "All-Star" version. For the first time ever in BIG BROTHER history worldwide, America will help choose who will participate in the game from among a pool of 20 of their favorite former houseguests from all six seasons.
Julie Chen returns as host.
BIG BROTHER: ALL-STARS (working title) will reunite some of the most memorable, entertaining and controversial houseguests from previous BIG BROTHER seasons as they compete for the $500,000 grand prize among a group of people who could potentially consist of previous champions and some of the series' best personalities. Once again, America will be able to see the people they love… and the people they love to hate!
The series will follow the relationships and conflicts of players who live together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. One by one, the houseguests will vote each other out of the house. At the end of three months, the last remaining houseguest will receive the grand prize. While living together in a confined space won't be anything new to the houseguests, choosing between any pre-existing relationships and building new alliances could be a challenge.
BIG BROTHER: ALL STARS is Executive Produced by Oscar and Emmy Award winner Arnold Shapiro, Emmy Award-winner Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
