Jesse Tannenbaum is helping to put together the Big Brother 23 cast and has posted some new information about the application process.

We recently reported that it appeared Jesse was stepping into the role that was vacated by Robyn Kass. The news that Robyn was leaving the show caught a lot of people by surprise.

The show is now presumably heading in a new direction, with preparations being made for the BB23 cast to take over the house during summer 2021.

Jesse took to his Instagram page — which now boasts his title of casting director for Big Brother, Survivor, and The Amazing Race — to give an update on the casting process.

“Know someone who would make a great Houseguest? Have them apply on our website today!! #BB23 #BigBrother #BB #BBUSA #CBS #JulieChen #BigBrother23 #bblivefeeds,” Jesse wrote as the caption to a photo about playing Big Brother.
