Plot Synopsis

BIG BROTHER: CELEBRITY EDITION is a reality series that follows a group of celebrities living together in a house outfitted with approximately 100 HD cameras and microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, someone is voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving a $250,000 grand prize.

In Season 1, 94 HD cameras and 113 microphones chronicle the Celebrity Houseguests as they live in luxury in a house with a sophisticated sense of style, rich jewel tones, dark woods, polished gold finishes, and a floor-to-ceiling panorama image of the Los Angeles skyline as seen from the Hollywood Hills. This season's Houseguests probably spend the most time in the Hollywood speakeasy, where the walls are covered with photos depicting stars of classic Hollywood lore, and the dim lighting makes it feel like a very intimate and cozy place -- perfect for secret strategy meetings. The chess set, normally upstairs, is now located inside the speakeasy along with a new game: Chinese checkers. The following 11 celebrity Houseguests compete for the grand prize: actress Shannon Elizabeth; television personality Brandi Lynn Glanville; model Ariadna Gutierrez; UFC legend Chuck Liddell; actor/musician James Maslow; TV host Ross Mathews; rock star Mark McGrath; actress Keshia Knight Pulliam; Broadway ctress Marissa Jaret Winokur; NBA champion Metta World Peace; and television personality Omarosa.

Season 2 of BIG BROTHER: CELEBRITY EDITION premiered with a two-night event at 8pm ET/PT on Monday, January 21 and Tuesday, January 22, 2019 on CBS. Julie Chen Moonves returns as the host. Twelve celebrities live together in a house outfitted with over 80 HD cameras and over 100 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day and having no contact with the outside world. Each week, one or more Celebrity Houseguests will be voted out of the house, with the last remaining Houseguest receiving the grand prize of $250,000. The celebrity edition features multiple episodes per week during a three-week run, and include the series' signature Head of Household and Power of Veto competitions and live evictions. The 12 celebrities are: Jonathan Bennett (Age: 37; Hometown: Rossford, OH; Current City: Newport Beach, CA); Tamar Braxton (41; Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia; Los Angeles, CA); Kandi Burruss (42; Atlanta, GA; Atlanta, GA); Tom Green (47; Ottawa, Canada; Los Angeles, CA); Lolo Jones (36; Des Moines, IA; Baton Rouge, LA); Kato Kaelin (59; Milwaukee, WI; Los Angeles, CA); Joey Lawrence (42; Philadelphia, PA; Los Angeles, CA); Ryan Lochte (34; Daytona Beach, FL; Gainesville, FL); Dina Lohan (56; Long Island, NY; Long Island, NY); Natalie Eva Marie (34; Concord, CA; North Tustin, CA); Anthony Scaramucci (55; Port Washington, NY; Manhasset, NY); and Ricky Williams (41; San Diego, CA; Venice Beach, CA).
