‘Big Brother’ Season 23 Will Have a Major Change That Will Affect How the Game Is Played
Season 23 of Big Brother is almost here, and it already sounds like it’ll be one for the books.
Following last year’s installment, which was greatly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, the hit reality series is returning to our screens this summer with a new cast and a new format. That’s right, Big Brother is switching up the game by formally building alliances between the incoming 16 house guests.
According to Entertainment Weekly, contestants will still compete individually for the grand prize of $500,000 but they “will also be separated into teams.” Now, this isn’t the first time that BB has done something like this. Many viewers remember past seasons in which folks have been split into couples, cliques and even teams to be mentored by former players. But executive producer Rich Meehan assures fans that twist is meant to lean into season 23’s Big Risks and Big Rewards theme.

Ahead of the live 90-minute premiere on July 7, he opened up to EW about what longtime fans can expect to see. In true fashion, the new season, called Big Brother Beach Club, will start off with a bang. In addition to the Head of Household (HOH) search, house guests will also be thrown into a competition to be named a leader.
“Opening night, the live premiere night, the houseguests learn they’re going to be playing in a team dynamic. There will be a twist that forces them to play in teams,” Rich told the outlet. “They’re going to be vying to be team captains as well as Head of Household. We think that fun team dynamic will be interesting to watch.”
He elaborated that once the team captain competition is done and leaders are chosen, then those houseguests will have the opportunity to create their groups. “If you’re a team captain, you’re going to get a snapshot of some of the houseguests, then you’re going to have to decide who you want to add on your team,” he explained to the magazine. “It should be a fun way to build the teams.”

The EP emphasized that this new format was implemented to encourage participants to think outside the box and keep viewers at home entertained. What’s more, he revealed that for the first time in the show’s history host Julie Chen Moonves will share an offer right before the end credits begin rolling.
“The one other big thing is that at the end of the episode, there will be a double-or-nothing offer Julie will be making that may be too good for someone to refuse,” he said to EW. “A double or nothing offer that should be exciting to watch and see what happens.”
