Big Brother news over the past week has included a lot of BB22 rumors and also a slew of stories about former houseguests being busy on social media.
Let’s get the bad news out of the way early – CBS has not yet announced the members of the BB22 cast. It means we can’t debate who might become the 2020 season winner or who got snubbed, yet.
There is some great news out there, though, and it involves a plan by CBS and the production team to make sure that the upcoming season can still play out, despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Bubble time for BB22 cast and crew
As we previously reported, sources close to the show have indicated that a “bubble” plan could get used, making the production as safe as possible for the BB22 cast and crew.
The cast itself is typically in its own quarantine within the house, but they still interact with people from the show each time that a Diary Room session is held. Crew members are also coming and going from the house and backyard in order to build competitions, restock the pantry, set up the Head of Household room, and various other day-to-day operations.
The new plan is to put RVs on the set where the Big Brother house is located and to have the crew live there, rather than allowing them to leave the lot and go home after a shift. This bubble would be there to cut down contact with the outside world.

Big Brother 11 houseguest gets a movie
Big Brother 11 winner Jordan Lloyd posted on social media that her husband, Jeff Schroeder, is now off to film a small part in a new movie that he was cast in. Her initial post started up some BB22 cast rumors that Jeff was actually heading to the Big Brother house, rather than to a movie set. She later clarified.
Kaycee Clark has a run-in while out with dogs
Big Brother 21 winner Kaycee Clark posted on social media that while she was out with her dogs she had someone ask her about not wearing a mask. She was not pleased about the interaction and she shared it with all of her followers.
