A new book called The Big Brother Bible has been released.

Covering the history of the hit reality competition show, this could be a fun read for die-hard fans.

As the Big Brother 26 season draws closer, the book could provide entertainment when the live feeds are down this summer.

Many folks were interviewed for this book, including host Julie Chen Moonves and alums like Janelle Pierzina and BB13 winner Rachel Reilly.

Written by Brody Stuart-Verner, it advertises “25 Years of America’s Summertime Guilty Pleasure” inside.

Even die-hard fans could learn some new things from this book, as people involved in casting and production also revealed some secrets.

What is The Big Brother Bible?

A recent social media post states that The Big Brother Bible features “interviews with over 100 contestants and behind-the-scenes crew including Julie Chen, Allison Grodner, Janelle, Kaysar + more!”

Below is an image of the book’s cover (Note: the retweeting contest is over).

“The Big Brother Bible is out!” Big Brother alum Janelle Pierzina wrote on social media.

“This book gives us 25 years of America’s Summertime guilty pleasure. Julie Chen, myself, Rachel and casting directors were interviewed for the book. I read it and loved it! So many throw back moments and it’s super funny!” she added.

More specific stories you can find inside have also been shared, including two-time Big Brother player James Rhine stating that All-Stars 2 (BB22) lacked many big hitters.

“To not have Rachel [Reilly], to not have Vanessa [Rousso], to not have Dr. Will [Kirby], to not have Derrick [Levasseur], to not have Dan [Gheesling]… What do you really have at that point? Small Stars is what I called it,” James is quoted as saying.

A post sharing that quote also states that the book contains interviews with “Julie Chen-Moonves, Allison Grodner, Robyn Kass, Dr. Drew, and over 100 contestants & producers.”

The Big Brother Bible can be ordered through Amazon, Kindle, and directly from the author.

“Based on unprecedented access, including stunning interviews with more than one hundred producers and contestants, the Big Brother Bible offers a rare glimpse into the evolution of a pioneering social experiment that has captivated viewers with its drama, strategy and twists, for nearly a quarter century,” advertises the book.
