Big Brother 22’s premiere and the official cast announcement is getting closer every day. It is reported to take place a little over a week before the season premiere of August 5th. Yet, it all depends on who passes their COVID-19 tests in order for them to play. CBS is taking strict measures to ensure that no one has the virus, so there will be plenty of tests throughout the season.
Plus, rumors about no live feeds this summer have been circling, but we’ve got the answer.
Big Brother 22: All-Stars Undergo Strict COVID-19 Testing
Earlier this week the Big Brother 22: All-Stars cast began arriving in Los Angeles. You can see a list of names leaked to be a part of the monumental season right here. Before they’re able to enter the house, the potential returning alums must pass testing for COVID-19. It looks like CBS has brought in alternates just in case any of their core group tests positive.
Once they enter the house after a mandatory two-week sequester, Big Brother players will be constantly tested, according to CBS. They’ll have to take a weekly COVID-19 test and production will screen them for symptoms each day. Not only are the cast under stricter guidelines, but so are crew members. Our sources tell us that the crew will be tested and screened for symptoms while also wearing PPE and working in individual pods.

Will There Be Live Feed For BB22?
There have been rumors that there won’t be any 24/7 live feeds for the All-Stars season 22 of Big Brother. Previously, Soap Dirt reported that an unnamed potential female returnee refused to return if there were going to be feeders watching their every move.
This had superfans especially worried because it wouldn’t be Big Brother without being able to watch the houseguests whenever they want and as much as they want. Not to mention, it’s a big source of revenue for CBS who charge for their All-Access website. Yet, our source says not to worry because there is definitely going to be live feeds this time around. It wouldn’t be the same without them.
