Big Brother 22‘s host Julie Chen Moonves just confirmed that BB22 is happening this summer.

It’s happening folks and you’re not going to want to miss out on this juicy information. So, what’s the scoop?
Big Brother 22: Julie Chen Drops Major Hint Towards Upcoming Season
Soap Dirt was first to report that CBS accidentally uploaded Big Brother: All-Stars merchandise to their store for BB22, before the official announcement. This confirmed what our sources had been telling us about the new All-Star season. Immediately after our report, CBS took down the merchandise. It turns out a CBS intern had accidentally jumped the gun and put the promotional items onto the CBS online store. But, we all got to see what the new BB22 logo looks like.
Now, Julie Chen announced (officially) that Big Brother season 22 will be an All-Star even and will premiere on August 5th, 2020.
But, before the official announcement, Julie Chen shared a teaser video of a hot cup of tea. Ironically, she wasn’t spilling any new tea as Soap Dirt has been reporting on CBS leaks as the network has tried to keep a tight lid on things.
Yet, that wasn’t all. In the background of the video, the song “22” by Taylor Swift was playing which is an unmistakable nod to Big Brother 22. It’s the first we’ve heard from Julie all summer. Obviously, it’s caused a lot of talk among excited fans. And add to that, it was posted on the 22nd day of the month.
Julie Confirms All-Star BB22 Season – Confirms Premiere Date
