'Celebrity Big Brother' Is Coming to CBS in the Next Year!

Julie Chen teased that she had a surprise to announce during tonight’s episode of Big Brother and the announcement did not disappoint!

Celebrity Big Brother, a huge craze in the U.K., is finally coming to the U.S. and it is set to air on CBS this winter.

Julie says that a group of celebs will be entering the Big Brother house to compete and more details are set to be announced soon. She chatted with THR and revealed the types of celebs the show is going after.

“We’re being realistic. It’s not going to be all Oscar winners. But maybe we’ll have someone who won an Oscar decades ago,” she said. “Whoever casts Dancing With the Stars does an amazing job. They don’t always get all household names, but some people kind of reinvent themselves and suddenly I see that person all over the tabloids. Sometimes these types of shows, like in the U.K. [version], some of the washed-up names that went into it got a new lease on life. And the big names that went in, it was a little bit too up close and personal. Those people did themselves in with letting the public see who they really are.”

A celebrity has already been inside the house this season. Bobby Moynihan surprised the guests this week to promote his new comedy Me, Myself, and I.

'Big Brother 19' Temptation Twist Revealed - See House Pics Too!

We’re starting to learn about the twists for this summer of Big Brother!

Host Julie Chen, and executive producers Rich Meehan and Allison Grodner, are opening up about how we can once again – expect the unexpected.

“It’s a summer of temptation! Not only does the house represent that, but the rooms carry through with some of those themes and we’re bringing that all the way through with the twists of the game this summer as well,” Rich told THR. “With temptation there are lots of different paths the season could go on depending on which temptations the houseguests take. We’ve never done anything quite like that throughout the course of the season. So we have plans and backup plans for all different things.”

“There will be choices like a Pandora’s Box leads to some choices,” Allison said. “Will you take the temptation? And if you do it will have a consequence. If you turn it down then something else will happen.”

Big Brother 19 premieres on Wednesday, June 28 at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Kristin Chenoweth, Beth Behrs, & Julie Chen Compete for Duets with James Corden - Watch Now!

Kristin Chenoweth gets dipped by James Corden while performing a duet on The Late Late Show on Wednesday (October 5) in Los Angeles.

The Emmy and Tony-winning actress was introduced third that evening, following Big Brother‘s Julie Chen and 2 Broke GirlsBeth Behrs, and she told James that she was going to go home as she didn’t feel special.

Last time when Kristin was on the show, the two stars sang a duet together, so James started singing “Endless Love” and she joined him on stage to finish the song.

After the song was over, Beth appeared and was jealous that she didn’t get to sing with James, so he told her she was the one he wanted and broke into Grease‘s “You’re the One That I Want.”

Julie later showed up and didn’t want to sing, but she started rapping “Move Bitch (Get Out the Way).” Watch below!
