The Big Brother 20 premiere date is upon us and this is just the start of a summer full of surprises. Being that this is the 20th season and a special year for the CBS hit, viewers can expect way more of the unexpected.

Excitement is building as we get ready to lay eyes on the BB20 cast together for the first time. It’s worth noting that they have been living in the Big Brother house for several days now, and at this point viewers are just getting caught up.

On the Big Brother 20 premiere, we can expect to see all 16 new cast members enter the house and quickly get to know one another. From there, the gameplay starts.

Many viewers have expressed on social media that they have high hopes for Big Brother 20. After a couple of disappointing seasons that relied heavily on gimmicks and returning players, executive producer Allison Grodner has promised that the competitors of BB20 will all be fresh faces. You heard that — no vets are returning to the Big Brother 2018 house.

That doesn’t mean vets won’t be making appearances. In fact, you can count on several of them popping up throughout the summer. However, the huge fear that Paul Abrahamian may return for a third shot in a row at winning Big Brother should start to wane after fans get a chance to see the cast and get an idea of how the latest season will play out.

So when do we tune in to see Big Brother 20?

Big Brother 20 start time

The two-part premiere begins at 8/7c tonight (Wednesday) with a two-hour episode, and will conclude tomorrow (Thursday) with another hour starting at 9/8c.

Don’t expect to see the first Head of Household during the two-part premiere, though, While we already know who holds the key to the BB20 HoH room first, that and the first two nominations of the Big Brother 2018 season won’t be revealed until Sunday night.

After that, we can expect to see the first Power of Veto competition play out on next Wednesday’s episode with the first live eviction taking place next Thursday night. Get ready for a wild ride because anything can happen on Big Brother!

Big Brother 20 will air on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8/7c and on Thursdays at 9/8c on CBS throughout the summer.
