‘Big Brother 18’ Schedule: ‘BB18’ Cast Enters House, Producers Prepare Season Premiere

The Big Brother 18 schedule is ready to go. The BB18 cast will enter the house this weekend, presumably on Saturday, June 18, which will serve as Day 1 for the summer 2016 season. As outlined on the Big Brother website, the two-night season premiere is less than a week away now. The big push to get people to subscribe for the live feeds has also been made, with show producers releasing interviews online as well. When the BB18 cast reveal took place, it also increased the buzz on social media.

The Big Brother 18 schedule officially begins when the houseguests enter the game this weekend. Fans of the show will have to wait to see the footage that producers decide to reveal during the first two episodes next week. It is when the live feeds get turned on that fans will get to keep up with what is taking place inside the BB18 house. There is just about a week until the live feeds get turned on, with it taking place at 10 p.m. PT/1 a.m. ET on Thursday evening (June 23).

As previously reported by the Inquisitr, there are Big Brother 18 rumors that this will be the longest season the show has had. With an expected run of 99 days, the BB18 cast would be in the house until the end of September. That is a long time for any reality competition show to last, with a typical Survivor season coming it at 39 days total. The added time in the house could allow producers to work in more twists and cast members. It has long been assumed that there will be some returning houseguests that will be revealed on the season premiere.

First “Live” Eviction — Thursday, June 30 at 9 p.m. PT/ET

Once the first full week of BB18 episodes have been shown, the show slides back to 8 p.m. on Wednesdays. The Big Brother 18 TV schedule will continue to have evictions on Thursday nights, nominations on Sunday nights, and then Veto competitions on Wednesday nights. As for the schedule on how things break down inside the BB18 house, nominations are using on Fridays, the Veto competition is usually on Saturdays, and then the Veto ceremony typically happens on Mondays. Barring changes for holidays or twists, the schedule should remain the same.

The first live eviction show (for East Coast viewers) will take place on Thursday, June 30. This doesn’t mean that someone won’t get evicted before that time, as producers could have something planned for the two-night premiere. In several past seasons, there have been houseguests evicted before the show even got started. With several days of competitions taking place before the live feeds get turned on or the first episode even airs, a lot could take place inside the BB18 house.

The excitement is really growing on social media for the season premiere of the show, especially with so many potential returning houseguests who could get revealed. There are only roughly six days until the Big Brother 18 TV schedule gets started, giving fans a little more time to familiarize themselves with the BB18 cast. Then all the rumored Big Brother 18 spoilers about potential twists will finally be addressed.
