What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the CBS television network, Big Brother is a competitive reality TV series, hosted by Julie Chen. It typically airs three nights a week — Wednesdays (veto), Thursdays (eviction), and Sundays. In the 19th season, the new contestants are: Christmas Abbott, Matthew Clines, Dominique Cooper, Elena Davies, Jason Dent, Jessica Graf, Cameron Heard, Mark Jansen, Megan Lowder, Josh Martinez, Cody Nickson, Alex Ow, Jillian Parker, Kevin Schlehuber, Ramses Soto, and Raven Walton.
Big Brother follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 87 HD cameras and more than 100 microphones, recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week someone is voted out of the house. The last remaining Houseguest wins the grand prize of $500,000. Season 19 features a new twist, the “Den of Temptation,” in which Houseguests will receive offers money, power, or safety, but they all come with consequences.
