It's only about 8 weeks until the usual premiere date, so let the speculation, rumors, and bits of news commence!
What we do know:
Julie Chen Moonves will return as host this summer. Her contract is up after this season, so we will have to wait and see if she is still around after that.
The deadline for accepting online applications has passed (April 5th). The open calls all over the country are done too, which means they will spend the next several weeks scouring local LA bars, and looking at rejects from other reality shows to fill out the cast.
There are no new bits of news or clips on the official website. I scoured the fansites, not much there either. In the meantime, enjoy seeing Janelle, Britney, the Reillys, Victor and Nicole on TAR, and feel free to post any BB21 news or rumors you see online!
I would guess the weekly schedule will change once or twice during the season, whenever new shows debut or if something gets cancelled. CBS doesn't air football on Thursdays anymore, so that's no longer a factor.
So, is the pink house in the logo hinting at it being an all-female cast? Interesting, if it is but I doubt they would do that. BB loves the showmances.
I'm with the rest of you: I want the season to be a little shorter. Once they get down to just a handful of HG's it gets really boring watching them do nothing but sunbathe or sleep all day. They need to move things along at that point.
