Big Brother 17 Premiere Tonight on CBS

The Big Brother 17 premiere is finally here! After months of rumors and speculation, tonight we will finally find meet the Big Brother 2015 cast and (hopefully) find out what the heck this Big Brother Takeover Twist is going to be all about.

We are also so still holding out hope for an additional two Houseguests to be revealed this evening on the Big Brother premiere. There are 16 slots in the memory wall, 16 place settings at the dinner table, but only 14 Houseguests announced so far.

Rumor has it the ‘missing’ Houseguests might just be a ‘couple’ from the last season of The Amazing Race. However, the response so far to having Jeff Weldon and TAR partner Jackie Ibarra as the final two Houseguests has been underwhelming so far.

Personally, we think there is something more complicated going on than CBS just hiding the presence of two former The Amazing Race cast members on this season’s Big Brother cast. Maybe they are going to do some sort of Utopia style twist where the evicted Houseguest gets replaced every week? Or there are going to be ‘guest’ cast members only there for a limited time? We’ll just have to wait and see!

The fact that we don’t even have any sneak peeks of the show yet, or the infamous ‘bikini’ swimsuit photos from CBS speaks to us of a number of secrets about the new season yet to be revealed.

The Big Brother 17 premiere kicks off Wednesday night at 8PM ET/PT with an hour long episode. The second part of the premiere airs on Thursday night, also at 8PM ET/PT. The Big Brother Live Feeds should be turned on shortly after the Thursday night episode. Big Brother After Dark will also launch on Thursday and run nightly on the POP channel from midnight to 3AM.
