Big Brother: Reindeer Games tapped Nicole Franzel to play this winter. The Big Brother spin-off debuts on December 11 but was filmed ahead of the air dates.
Here is the full episode schedule for Reindeer Games on CBS for viewers looking to tune in. It’s much shorter than a regular season of Big Brother, but it should be entertaining.
Nine former houseguests were invited to play in the first season of Reindeer Games – and here is the Reindeer Games cast list for anyone who hasn’t seen it.
An interesting wrinkle comes with Reindeer Games in that the players are home and can react live on social media as the episodes debut.
Episodes debut on CBS but are available for streaming on Paramount+ after airing live. This allows viewers to catch up if an episode gets missed.
Despite being retired from reality television, Nicole Franzel jumped at the chance to compete again this winter. And she has the bruises to prove it.

Nicole also shared an image of her battered and bruised legs. It appears that she had a rough time competing in the Reindeer Games and that she threw her whole body into the challenges.
Does she end up winning the $100,000 cash prize? We will all have to tune in to find out.
