Great to have the show back! Cody killed it on the HoH, let's see if he holds on!
I'd rather walk alone than let them throw dirty confetti. ♥

I think the casting department did a good job. There is a great mix of new and old, and giving chances to those who left too soon in their original season.

I haven't watched in awhile so some of these are new to me.

So...did anyone else think it was kind of lame tonight?

The pinball task was slow as molasses to watch (at least for me), the unlucky room was locked... just wasn't very pulled together.

Hope it improves!

Iím quite pleased to see Cody back (he was my first hope for a return), and I also like seeing Memphis and Tyler back. Ian is smart, but playing the same way this time will be far more difficult. Bringing Janelle back for a fourth season, though, is too much.

Well, they did choose to not announce this cast beforehand due to the need to quarantine and test, and doing all of this live, without editing would make things seem slower. Production certainly forget these players would want to at least greet each other when they went finished that one comp in their original groups went into the house, so that was poor time management that could have been planned for and wasnít. The have not room clearly wasnít unlocked On time also shows disorganization perhaps due to COVID-19 procedures.

Just finished watching the premiere. None of the production miscues really dragged it down IMO, it was the first-ever live move in and there were bound to be hiccups. The house, especially the front, looks gorgeous! This cast is very promising. So many people have aged so well!

I think Ian spoke the truth when he said that luck would be the factor to get back to the finale. It will be interesting to see how strategies change from first go-rounds to second (or third or fourth) tries.

I'm sure this will change, and it's hard to pick with so many favorites, but right now I'm rooting for: Memphis, Nicole A., Ian, Kevin

I definitely think most of the returnees are decent choices, though I'm not familiar with some of the older ones.

I didn't mind the production hiccups - I just felt it made the show feel more genuine especially in times like these.

The pinball task was absolutely horrendous though! :groan: I completely agree with Peach about that. Not a bad challenge if it wasn't live and it had been edited to look dramatic, but for a live challenge it was like watching paint dry. The idea of a live move-in and a live first competition was cool (and arguably necessary in the current climate) but compared to other premieres, I didn't think it was good because we simply got no game play yet.

I would have preferred seeing MORE not LESS interaction between the players as they met/re-met.

Many if these players would have seen each other or been friends or at least known each other already from previous reality events. WOuld have been fun to see more clueshnts of who might bond this time.

Just a reminder fUS and Canada that the live feeds are now through CBS ALL ACCESS. With a month free trial and then $5.99/month you can essentially watch for about $12. Might be worth it this time!

It feels like those who've already come back multiple times must be producer's favourites, as there were so many past HGs to choose from.  The game itself hasn't really lit up yet, it feels like there's a large alliance controlling it and they will probably just pick off the outsiders/floaters.

Enzo is just enabling Cody to get to the end, the same with Nicole.  Enzo is even more annoying as we see him continually passing information to Cody, while always promising some big move and never actually doing it.  Nicole winning HoH was not the best result, I'm hoping Christmas wins the next one.
