05 Jul CBS Announces Cast of ‘Big Brother’ Season 23
Your favorite show of the summer is back! CBS’s long-running reality TV series “Big Brother” announced its new season and 16 new cast members on Thursday.
The houseguests will live and compete for a grand prize of $500,000.
The 23rd season is a follow-up to the show’s All-Stars season in 2020, which crowned houseguest Cody Calafiore as the winner and Da’Vonne Rogers as America’s Favorite Player.
In addition to Rogers becoming the first Black woman to win America’s Favorite Houseguest, the network announced its diversity changes by catering 50% of its casting to people of color. This decision was made prior to controversies of racism and lack of representation on the show.
