BB20 Prologue, Part I: The Future

Welcome to the first installment of at least a few that will cover the 20th season (actually, the 22nd) of Big Brother here in the United States taking place in the summer of 2018. Full disclosure: this is the last season I’m intending to cover here on this blog – though I intend to be […]

CBBUS, Epligoue: Redeemed

It was a show that made history in that it was the first celebrity Big Brother held here in the United States, and it ended as it began – with history again made with the oldest winner in BB US history in Marissa Jaret Winkour.
