‘Big Brother’ Fall Edition: Why ‘Over The Top’ Could Top The Regular ‘Big Brother’ Game

Victoria Miller



Summer is over, but Big Brother isn’t. The Big Brother fall edition starts just one week after Big Brother 18 wraps, and while it won’t air on CBS, it will be accessible 24/7 on CBS All Access. The full-length episodes with live evictions will stream every Wednesday night and they will be available on demand the next day.

According to the CBS website, the new season of the show, titled Big Brother: Over the Top, will showcase weekly live eviction episodes, as well as weekly recaps and round-the-clock live feeds with no scheduled blackouts. The promise of no blackouts is great news for diehard Big Brother fans who don’t appreciate the sudden switch to the fish tank whenever something good is happening during competitions or Power of Veto ceremonies.


The Big Brother fall edition will also feature “unprecedented” interactive components that will have an immediate impact on the game. In addition to more audience voting opportunities, there will be a Flashback feature on the Big Brother: Over the Top menu. Fans can click on the calendar in the live feed menu to instantly go back to any moment in the game. CBS also promises more viewer power and influence in the fall edition of the Big Brother game.

Big Brother Access shared more details about the Over the Top season, which is not to be confused with Big Brother 19, which will air next summer on the CBS network. According to the spoiler site, The Amazing Race casting team has cast the Big Brother: Over the Top cast, and while a Big Brother veteran or two could show up, it’s more likely that past superstars will turn up next summer for the network edition of the show. Either way, longtime Big Brother host Julie Chen will still be heavily involved in Big Brother: Over the Top.



One other big change: While the usual Big Brother grand prize is $500,000 for the fall edition, the winner will get $250,000.

In an interview with Zap 2 It, Big Brother executive producer Rich Meehan said the online version of Big Brother will appeal to loyal live feed watchers as well as broadcast viewers. In addition, producers won’t have to deal with “the restrictions of broadcast television, which means anything goes.

Longtime Big Brother producer Allison Grodner said that while the competitions will be downsized for the 10-week Big Brother fall edition, they will likely play out longer for live feed viewers.

“It’s still Big Brother but it’s live,” Grodner said.
 

“The competitions won’t be as big [but they] can possibly play out longer, people will be able to see everything, it won’t be blocked. You have to have some catch up [for people who don’t watch the feeds], but the feeds are now primary. It’s a whole new way of looking at it.”

Grodner also promises that there will be more incentive for the Big Brother players to stay awake instead of sleeping all day, so the Over the Top feeds will be more interesting than the regular Big Brother feeds
