The season premiere of Off the Block with Ross and Marissa is on June 29. As revealed in the summer 2018 schedule, that’s two days after the CBS season premiere. Each evicted houseguest will go from the BB20 house over to the Facebook show, rather than going straight home. As a result, it can serve as a continuation of the post-eviction chat they typically have with Julie Chen.
BB20 cast reveal
As previously reported by Inside the BB House, the BB20 cast interviews go live on Monday (June 18). First of all, this sets the stage for the season, but it also finally gives viewers some specific details. Live feed subscribers will have immediate access to all the information, while also creating a lot of positive buzz on social media.
There have been some recent Big Brother 20 rumors, consequently causing some negative comments from viewers and past houseguests. Those unconfirmed rumors suggested that some returning houseguests could join the BB20 cast. Answers to those rumors, who is in the summer 2018 cast, and what twists and turns are coming should start getting revealed very soon.
This news about Off the Block with Ross and Marissa, though, has certainly received positive feedback on social media thus far.
