BB24 start date

Big Brother fans can officially get excited as the show’s 24th season is a go in 2022.

Sixteen total strangers are living in total confinement, cut off from the outside world – without cell phones or internet connection – under the surveillance of over 200 cameras and microphones.

This summer they are all set to compete in a bid to stay in the BB house. Each week the houseguests have to evict one contestant until only one winner is left and gets to take home the 750,000 dollar grand prize.

Big Brother 24 kicks off on July 6th, 2022 at 8/7c with a 90-minute episode.

Is Big Brother live this year?

Big Brother 24 started off as it means to go on with its live move-in during episode 1.

Speaking to Us Weekly, Julie Moonves said that the show will continue with its live feed throughout season 24.

The show is available to watch via CBS live online and airs on Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Between episodes, fans can stay up to date with the house guests by tuning in to the live feeds.
