Big Brother 25 (US) | Wiki, Cast, and Trivia

Big Brother is a popular reality competition show that originated in the Netherlands and was later adapted into an American version. The show, inspired by George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, made its debut on CBS on July 5, 2000. It has become the longest-running iteration of the Big Brother franchise, surpassing even the now-discontinued Spanish version, and continues to air to this day.

Previous Season: Big Brother 24 (US)

Synopsis:

The show follows a familiar format where a group of contestants, referred to as “HouseGuests,” reside in a specially constructed house that is completely cut off from the outside world. Their objective is to win a substantial cash prize, initially set at $500,000 (later increased to $750,000 starting from the 23rd season). The HouseGuests are under constant surveillance through live television cameras and personal audio microphones. As the competition progresses, HouseGuests face eviction through a voting process. The first season of the American version, which closely followed the original Dutch format, received declining ratings and negative reviews, leading to a revamp for the second season. The subsequent seasons focused more on competition and gameplay elements.

The twenty-fourth season of the series premiered on July 6, 2022. On September 25, 2022, CBS renewed the series for a twenty-fifth season. The twenty-fifth season is scheduled to premiere on August 2, 2023. {Wikipedia}
