Learn more about the show and the celebs before you start watching.
How Celebrity Big Brother Works
Those new to the show may not understand quite how it works. The show consists of more than a dozen people who agree to live in a house for a period of time and have their lives taped and aired on television for fans to see. The celebs take part in different challenges, competitions and tasks every week. Those who win get the chance to remain on the show. The contestants then vote to eliminate one person from the house until there is just one celerity left at the very end.
Who’s on Celebrity Big Brother This Season?
Celebrity Big Brother 17 features some of the most famous celebs in the history of the show. Tiffany Pollard was one of the first to join the show. You may remember her from the VH1 shows she appeared on in the past, including two seasons of her own reality show called I Love New York. Angie Bowie, who was once married to David Bowie, also joined the show. Fans may also love seeing Kristina Rihanoff, a former star of Strictly Come Dancing and a noted choreographer. Other celebs joining the cast include Jonathon Cheban, David Gest, Darren Day and Megan McKenna.
Biggest Twists of the Season
One of the biggest twists of the season came on the very first day. Instead of giving the competitors their belongings, the show let them pick who would stay in a bare bones room the first night and which contestants would not receive the luxury items they brought from home. Another twist came on the fourth day. Rihanoff learned that as the fan favorite with the most votes, she would not be eliminated despite being one of the celebs nominated that night. With so many celebs still on the show, you’re bound to see some more twists in the coming weeks.
