Big Brother: All-Stars, also known as Big Brother 22, is the twenty-second season of the television reality program Big Brother. The season premiered on August 5, 2020 and is broadcast on CBS in the United States and simulcast on Global in Canada. The show chronicles a group of former contestants, known as HouseGuests, as they compete to be the last competitor remaining to win a grand prize of $500,000. Julie Chen Moonves is hosting the season. For the first time since Big Brother: Over the Top, the program featured a live premiere. CBS renewed Big Brother for an additional season on September 5, 2019 before the twenty-first season concluded and confirmed Chen Moonves would be returning as host. The start of the season was delayed approximately six weeks due to the impacts of COVID-19.


The placeholder logo revealed alongside the season announcement.

Big Brother depicts a group of contestants, known as HouseGuests, that live inside a custom-built house outfitted with cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day.[2] The HouseGuests are sequestered in the Big Brother House with no contact with the outside world.[3] During their stay the HouseGuests share their thoughts on events and other houseguests inside a private room referred to as the Diary Room.[4][5] Each week, the HouseGuests compete in several competitions in order to win power and safety inside the house. At the start of each week, the HouseGuests compete in the Head of Household (abbreviated as "HoH") competition.[6] The winner of the HoH competition is immune from eviction and will select two HouseGuests to be nominated for eviction.[7] Then six HouseGuests are selected to compete in the Power of Veto (abbreviated as "PoV") competition: the reigning HoH and the nominees are guaranteed to play with the remaining slots being given to other HouseGuests selected by random draw. The winner of the PoV competition wins the right to either revoke the nomination of one of the nominated HouseGuests or leave them as is. If the veto winner uses this power, the HoH must immediately nominate another HouseGuest for eviction. The PoV winner is also immune from being named as the replacement nominee.[8] On eviction night, all HouseGuests must vote to evict one of the nominees. The Head of Household and the nominees are not allowed to vote. This compulsory vote is conducted in the privacy of the Diary Room. In the event of a tie, the Head of Household will cast the tie-breaking vote in front of all the HouseGuests in the living room. The nominee with the most votes is evicted from the house.[9] The last nine evicted HouseGuests, referred to as the Jury, are sequestered in a separate house following their eviction and ultimately decide the winner of the season. The Jury are not allowed to watch the show except for competitions and ceremonies that include all of the remaining HouseGuests. They are not shown any Diary Room interviews or any footage that may include strategy or details regarding nominations.[10] The viewing public is able to award an additional prize of $25,000 to their favorite HouseGuest of the season. All evicted HouseGuests are eligible to win this award except for those who either voluntarily leave or are forcibly removed for rule-breaking.[11]

Main twists

Safety Suite

On the second episode, the Safety Suite twist was introduced. For each of the first three weeks, HouseGuests could opt in to compete in a Safety Suite competition to earn immunity as well as immunity for one other player. Each HouseGuest could only compete in one of the three Safety Competitions by scanning the VIP Pass that was given to them on week 1. Once the Suite was activated, those who wanted to participate would have one hour to scan in. The players who chose to participate were revealed to all the remaining houseguests. The player that won the Safety Suite competition would be safe for the week and would have to choose a +1 to be safe along with them, however the +1 would have to accept a unique punishment for the week in addition to the immunity.

Week # Competitors Winner +1 +1's Punishment
1 Janelle, Kaysar Kaysar Janelle Star Mascot Costume
2 Bayleigh, Christmas, Cody, Da'Vonne, David, Ian, Kevin Christmas Ian BB's All-Star Wars
3 Dani, Enzo, Memphis, Nicole F. Enzo Christmas All-Star Is Born

BB Basement

During episode 13, Julie revealed a new room in the house called the BB Basement. In this room, a competition would take place that would award three game-changing powers to houseguests.

Power Winner Description Outcome
Blocker Christmas For the next three weeks, the power holder can prevent themselves or another houseguest of their choice from being the replacement nominee at a veto meeting.
Disruptor David For the next three weeks, the power holder can save one of the nominees that the HOH nominates and the houseguest chosen is safe for the entire week. Used on himself
(Week 6)
Replay Dani For the next three weeks, the outgoing HOH, whether it be the power holder or a houseguest of their choice, could play in the next week's HOH competition.


On July 23, 2020, CBS confirmed the season would be an All-Stars edition with previous HouseGuests taking part. This is the second All-Stars edition in the history of the program after the seventh season in 2006.[12] The HouseGuests were revealed during the live season premiere on August 5, 2020.[13]

Sixteen All-Star Houseguests entered the house in 4 groups.

  • Head of Household Competition: The first HoH competition was played in two rounds.
    • First Round: Upon entering the house, the move-in groups of four would instantly compete in a competition. In the competition, an item would be shown on a screen in the backyard and HouseGuests would have to find the item in the house. They would then roll a ball through a maze, with the goal of landing the ball in the hole corresponding to the room the item was in. The first two HouseGuests in each heat to complete the puzzle would compete in the second round. Given the live nature of the competition, this competition also had a 4-minute time limit. Should a heat exceed four minutes, then only those who completed the table maze would move to the final round. In the move-in group of Christmas, Da'Vonne, Dani and Nicole F., only Christmas advanced. Kevin and Ian advanced from the group of them, Tyler and Enzo. Nicole A. advanced from her group of her, Janelle, Keesha and Bayleigh. From the group of Cody, Memphis, David and Kaysar, Cody and Memphis advanced.
    • Final Round: The players who made it to the final round competed for one-by-one in a live competition. The HouseGuests would each have to race across a series of pedestals and make it to the other side of the yard, locking in their time with a buzzer. Some of these pedestals were not sturdy. If a HouseGuest fell off a pedestal, they would have to restart. The HouseGuest to complete the course in the fastest time would be the new Head of Household. Cody completed the course fastest and became the new Head of Household, while the other five final round HouseGuests took an envelope.

After the HoH Competition, Christmas was revealed to have won $5,000 from her envelope, while Ian, Memphis, Nicole A. and Kevin were named the first Have-Nots.

For the next three weeks, the Safety Suite competition is open for any HouseGuest who wishes to compete for safety from the threat of eviction. Each may only participate in one competition and whoever wins will be granted safety for the week, plus another HouseGuest of their choice will also receive safety, but with a punishment.

  • Safety Suite Competition ("Don't Miss a Beat"): Kaysar and Janelle were the only two HouseGuests who elected to enter the Safety Suite with their VIP Pass. In this competition, the object was to put together sections of the Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star remix by pressing seven buttons in the correct order after listening to the whole song. The HouseGuest who completed the task in the fastest time would be declared the winner. Kaysar beat Janelle and subsequently named her as his +1.

On Day 2, Cody nominated Keesha and Kevin for eviction. Meanwhile, Janelle had to wear a star unitard for her punishment.

Power of Veto competition:

  • Power of Veto Competition ("Going Bananas"): Contestants had to rock back and forth on a giant banana to earn 90 seconds to stack the most fruit cutouts they can on a stand. To earn more time, you had to get back on the banana and rock back and forth before the timer reaches 0. If the timer reaches zero or they exceed the 30 minutes total time limit, whichever comes first, they earn zero points and are eliminated. In the contest, only Enzo locked in his stack with 18 items.

Enzo elected not to use the veto, keeping Cody's nominations the same.

The goal is to place all of the drinks on the corresponding tables in the fastest time. All drinks on the red tray go to the red table, while the drinks on the blue tray go to the blue table. This had to be done in such a way that the tables will balance so that no drink falls off. Christmas completed the task in the shortest amount of time, thus earning her safety for the week, in which she gave the +1 to Ian, forcing Memphis to instead nominate Nicole A. and David for eviction.

Impacts of COVID-19

Dates for open casting calls were announced on February 28 and were due to start on March 7.[33] All open casting calls were cancelled on March 10 due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic however potential applicants were urged to continue submitting online applications.[34] An article from The Hollywood Reporter on April 7 noted that CBS would be without new seasons of Big Brother and Love Island during the summer. Unnamed sources to the publication said the network would rely on repeats of their scripted shows that "have historically repeated well."[35] Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment, said the network was "optimistic" about airing both shows (Big Brother and Love Island) during the summer "a little later than usual" in an interview with Deadline on May 19, 2020.[36] Pre-production began on July 2, 2020 with the crew starting construction on the house located in Los Angeles. Deadline reported the crew was following strict health and safety guidelines which including being tested for COVID-19, wearing personal protective equipment and observing social distancing during construction. Fly on the Wall Entertainment and Endemol Shine North America had to wait for approvals from unions and guilds to officially begin filming.[37] CBS revealed several changes to the program to ensure the health and safety of the HouseGuests, staff and production crew.[12] Prior to the season premiere the HouseGuests will be placed in quarantine and tested for COVID-19 multiple times. Once inside the House the HouseGuests would be tested weekly and have no contact with the production crew and any supplies delivered to the House would be disinfected. The production crew and staff would also be tested regularly and screened for symptoms, provided personal protective equipment, and work in socially distant pods. A COVID-19 compliance officer will be on staff to ensure the implementation of the safety policies. Additionally, the live shows would not have a studio audience.[38]


CBS announced Big Brother had been renewed for a twenty-second season on September 5, 2019. Chen Moonves confirmed to return as host on the same day after signing a one season contract extension with the network.[39] Merchandise for the upcoming season briefly appeared on CBS' online store on July 20, 2020 featuring the title Big Brother: All-Stars with a redesigned logo.[40][41] Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan will return as executive producers for the series which will be produced by Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America. CBS announced the season would have a live two-hour premiere on August 5, 2020.[12] For the first time since Big Brother: Over the Top this season will feature the HouseGuests moving into the House during live premiere. New episodes will air on Sunday/Wednesday/Thursday schedule as in previous seasons except all episodes will air in the 8:00 p.m. timeslot.[42] Global will air the season in Canada in simulcast with CBS.[43]


Kassting, Inc. returned to provide casting services for a twenty-first consecutive season since Big Brother 2, with Robyn Kass serving as the casting director.[44] Despite the eventual "All-Stars" format, a round open casting for the season was still held, which opened on September 22, 2019 and closed on April 3, 2020.[45][46]


As with previous seasons, the program is filmed at CBS Studios, soundstage 18 in Studio City, California in a custom-built two-story house. The House is equipped with 94 high-definition cameras and over 113 microphones to monitor and record the HouseGuests.[47]

Production design

The theme of the house is a modern colorful urban loft that showcases Big Brother history. Like the previous All-Star house, the new house contains many references to past players and moments of the series. Spray-painted murals in the kitchen area depict memorable moments from popular former HouseGuests, including:[48][49]

The lounge features toss pillows of the show’s multiple popular "showmances," including Jeff/Jordan (from Big Brother 11 and Big Brother 13), Cody/Jessica (from Big Brother 19), Brendon/Rachel (from Big Brother 12 and Big Brother 13), Dominic/Daniele (from Big Brother 13), Swaggy C/Bayleigh (from Big Brother 20), Tyler/Angela (from Big Brother 20), and Victor/Nicole (from Big Brother 18).[48][49] The first bedroom is a comic themed room that alludes to the recurring Power of Veto competition BB Comics. The walls of this room includes images of the BB Comics characters of multiple past HouseGuests, including Victor Arroyo (of Big Brother 18), Amber Borzotra (of Big Brother 16), Frank Eudy (of Big Brother 14 and Big Brother 18), Jessica Graf (of Big Brother 19), Frankie Grande (of Big Brother 16), Ovi Kabir (of Big Brother 21), Jordan Lloyd (of Big Brother 11 & Big Brother 13), Steve Moses (of Big Brother 17), Rachel Reilly (of Big Brother 12 and Big Brother 13), Vanessa Rousso (of Big Brother 17), Angela Rummans (of Big Brother 20), Faysal Shafaat (of Big Brother 20), Devin Shepherd (of Big Brother 16), Christopher "Swaggy C" Williams (of Big Brother 20) and Jase Wirey (of Big Brother 5 and Big Brother 7).[48][49] The second bedroom is themed around cameras, the walls of this bedroom is filled with "127 black-and-white photos that highlight pivotal moments spanning the show’s 20-year history".[48][49] The third bedroom is themed around the Big Brother key, the symbol of safety in the Big Brother house as used in the nomination ceremony and in the Final 2 jury vote.[48][49] The bathroom features rubber ducks which have been frequently seen in the pool.[48][49] This season also featured an updated front of house studio for the first time since Big Brother 15, featuring a new 10-foot-tall entrance door as well as a hallway to prevent houseguests from peeking beyond the door, a trope that has caught on in recent years.[50]


Each week a group of HouseGuests are selected to become Have-Nots for the week. The Have-Nots are required to sleep in an uncomfortable bedroom, take cold showers and are placed on a slop diet restriction. The first Have-Nots were determined by the first HoH Competition. However, for the first time in Big Brother, all subsequent Have-Nots were determined by the previous week's Have-Nots, choosing who would take their place. The current HoH and the previous week's Have-Nots could not be selected. The individual rows of the table follows the weekly selection chain process.

Summary of HouseGuests who became Have-Nots each week.
Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7 Week 8 Week 9 Week 10 Week 11 Week 12 Week 13
Nicole A. Christmas Bayleigh Dani none Da'Vonne Christmas

  • For the first week the Have-Nots were chosen by randomly picking an envelope after being eliminated during the first HoH competition. If a HouseGuest's evenlope contained a Have-Not card then that HouseGuest became a Have-Not for the week.
  • After Janelle's eviction in Week 3 the number of Have-Nots were reduced from four to three.
  • There were no Have-Nots in Week 5.
  • The first three HouseGuests eliminated from the endurance HoH competition on Day 37 became the Have-Nots for Week 6.

Controversy and criticism

During week 5, Memphis Garrett, Dani Briones, and Christmas Abbott made fun of Ian Terry's rocking coping mechanism for being on the autism spectrum. Briones stated "I can't even look at him sometimes because [of] his constant movement. It stresses me out", "I feel mean saying that, but I'll literally have to move". Garrett and Abbott joined in with Garrett comparing Terry's demeanor to a horror movie.[51][52][53] Multiple other houseguests were seen laughing when these comments took place, but Briones, Garrett and Abbott were seen actively contributing to the insensitive conversations.
