Big Brother 20 Season Premiere Live Blogging!

We’re here!  Can you believe it?


I started this blog at the beginning of Big Brother 13 and here we are about to begin Big Brother 20. It’s surreal that you guys keep coming back and making this blog what it is. I may not be the biggest, and I may not ever get mentions from houseguests, but I look forward to doing this all year long because of the interaction I get with other Big Brother fans.

As always, a new season may bring new bugs and issues with the site, so if you see anything strange, feel free to let me know here.

If you’re relatively new to the show, here is brief summary of what happens – The houseguests have been in the house for roughly a week now playing the game. Unfortunately, this is the one week that fans are not able to see inside the house. It is likely to build up a solid season premiere on CBS and they need a weeks worth of content to fill in the time (especially considering the first competition is typically an endurance challenge). However, after tonight, all my threads will be discussing what is going on live inside the house which you can watch along by getting the feeds here.


For most of the episode tonight, we’ll see the very painfully scripted handouts of the keys. People entering the house, making day 1 alliances that will undoubtedly crumble by day 7, and the beginnings of the showmances. Seeing as this is one of the youngest casts in BB history (I think third youngest), and mostly single, I expect quite a bit of hooking up. I’m not a huge fan of that part of the show but it is what it is.

Alright, enough rambling. With an hour to go before the show begins, I’m going to wrap this up and get ready to watch!  Keep checking back here throughout the season for updates, spoilers, discussion, and fun!

    Hoping things are a lot more entertaining and LESS frustrating than last season!

  2. kneeless

    In my happy place! Finally time for my summers guilty pleasure! Hello everyone!

    • Colby

      First impression is that he needs to talk a little slower. I didn’t catch most of anything he said.

      • Seattle Kari

        Okay now that I have watched the little bit more of the intro I realize what I wrote sounded really bad and presumptuous. His voice is simply his accent. I really couldn’t tell clearly before.

        if someone that has the ability would delete my comment above I would really appreciate it.

  3. Seattle Kari

    hey everybody! Let’s just hope that this year is better than last!

    Tis your “favorite” pain-in-the-ass from Seattle waving! Hope everyone is doing well!

    Side note did anybody have trouble logging in and having to possibly create a new password? Or is this just something we have to do every year?

    Bring on season 20!

  4. strwar1

    WOW!! It’s been a year since I came back here! Glad I’m back!

  5. AIO_7

    Thankfully, no sign of Paul yet.

  6. AIO_7

    Over/under 4 showmances this season?

  7. AIO_7

    I have a feeling Angie might be our next Krissy.

  8. kneeless

    Have a feeling Kaitlyn will get on people’s nerves with all her feeling out auras!

  9. kneeless

    Do live feeds start tomorrow night?

  10. Mel

    Hey guys! BB Canada was lonely without all of you. Hope everyone’s ready for little sleep and lots of opinions!

  11. kneeless

    Swaggy C may get annoying if he continues to speak in 1st person, all summer!

  12. NKogNeeTow

    Hey Everybody! Glad to see so many friendly faces back. Hope you all had a good winter. Now…LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLEEEEEEEEEE!!!

  13. NKogNeeTow

    Is Swaggy really considering not saving Angela? I don’t like that she told him up front that if she won he wasn’t saving him, BUT, he did promise her that she would be safe. It doesn’t seem right not to keep his word but hey, this IS Big Brother.

    • Sassy

      I believe he would have saved her and kept his word if he could choose the 8. He’s got a lot of work to do in the next 2 weeks to rebuild trust.

      • NKogNeeTow

        He sure does. He was listening at the storage room door when Kaitlyn and a few others were talking about how dumb he was and that he just painted a big target on his back. If he wants to remain safe, he’s going to have to kiss a LOT of butt next week.

  14. ShoeLover

    Oh my goodness!!! It’s my favorite time of the summer!! BBJ Family and Big Brother!!! Here’s to great fun and chatter!! All is fantastic with me, healthy as a horse ( thank the man upstairs ) and I hope all of you are doing wonderfully!! I am missing BB20 at the moment, but will watch later on the DVR. I am outside taking a breather from the pool builder guy and all his smooshing to get our business!!! So why not log in and say hello to fellow BBJ’s!! Oops!!! BUSTED!! Love and missed yall!!!!

  15. AIO_7

    Question: Where are they keeping Sam while she is a robot? This concept seems kind of sketch.

  16. Mel

    Poor Sam. Based on interviews, I think her social skills was one of her biggest assets.

  17. hogwild

    I would have thrown that comp on day one I don’t want to be in the position of basically giving half the house the bird.

    • Sassy

      I would have gone all out for this competition, I would want to know that I was safe for the week. But the 8 safe for the week, should throw the Hoh this week and just lay low, allow the other 8 to fight it out and make enemies of each other.

  18. Seattle Kari

    Question. It doesn’t start for another half hour here in the Pacific Northwest so his comments about the robot. Is this an actual robot or is this someone’s nickname already?

    Maybe one of the blogs could be just who the people are, the nicknames that go with them and why they were nicknamed thus?

    • NKogNeeTow

      She seems to be an actual robot. It/she can move around the room, see everything and talk to everyone in real time. You just can’t see “her”, it’s a robot with a face moving around and talking. Not sure where she is off camera.

  19. ElaineB

    Hi everyone!! Nice to see familiar peeps back here again. I have already gotten a chuckle or two out of the comments/observations so far. If this stays with newbies only, it will be a good season. I am watching the show now. Just wanted to officially check in. Lol.

  20. Sassy

    Great start to the season! I would love to have seen inside the house after he announced who he was keeping safe. Bay will never forgive Swaggy, she did say at the beginning of the show, “I will help people if I absolutely have to..” Referring to her customers at her job! If that is how she is on the outside, it will be 10x worse inside the house. She’s going to be a diva and hopefully won’t last long. Angela seemed less upset than the other girl (Katelyn, I think). She was hoping to be safe by association. It is going to be a backbiting season, bring it on!

  21. SammyD

    Kaitlin is a voice that sounds like chalk on a blackboard. Her voice annoys me. Also, her ranting proves that her LifeCoach skills are useless. I am waiting for Samantha to drop either a homophobic, Muslim or racial slip at any moment.

    I do have a feeling the JC and Stevie may become friends. I sense a vibe.

  22. Seattle Kari

    Has anyone done the voting yet with the new system? I did it through the Facebook messaging app. It’s rather interesting. Kind of hard to pick choices for the questions when you really don’t know the players yet though? At any rate I guess we’ve begun! We’ll see what happens..

  23. Shivani33

    Kaitlyn declared that Rachel has a red aura. Kaitlyn states that a red aura is bad mojo. Well, gee. Kaitlyn is yucky. More like jealous grouch than life coach. Phony baloney.

  24. Ann

    Does Haleigh remind anyone else besides me of Aaryn Gries, I mean her looks & her voice? Im waiting to see if she turns out to be a self entitled, spoiled, little bigoted bitch, mean girl Aaryn is. I sincerely hope not.

  25. Shivani33

    Note the special effects added to show Rachel aswirl in a red translucency, as Kaitlyn crowed about herself. But as Dr. Ruth might mention, Kaitlyn sees red when she looks at Rachel. Now, whose problem is this? Lol!

  26. LO1004

    Swaggy C needs to slow his roll. I’m not gonna be able to listen to him be full of himself all season.

  27. g8trgirl

    Anyone heard from Dan or Lindsey yet?

  28. Lynn

    Hello everyone! So glad to see everyone on here again this year. I agree that Mr. C is annoying which is sad for me because he was one of my preseason picks. I still have a couple of others I like though. Um the life coach and the star are not among them lol.

  29. Helen

    Okay. Where do you go to do this voting thing?

  30. Helen

    Can Steve come off the block and Kaitlyn take his place? I kinda like Steve….can’t stand Kaitlyn

  31. NKogNeeTow

    On a personal note: Steve, how is your Dad?

  32. hogwild

    I wonder what the HOH comp will be? I hope it’s endurance.
