'Big Brother: Over the Top' online broadcast schedule and format details released by CBS
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 09/22/2016
Big Brother: Over the Topwill share the same host, competitions and evictions as the televised Big Brother franchise, but the CBS All Access online version's format will be significantly different.
Big Brother: Over the Top, hosted by Julie Chen, will begin streaming live on CBS All Access, CBS' subscription video on demand and live-streaming service, on Wednesday, September 28 at 10PM ET/PT.
For the first time ever, fans will be able to watch everything play out online 24/7. Not only will fans have more power than ever to impact the game, but they will also decide the show's eventual winner.
The traditional elements of Big Brother will return such as the Head of Household competitions, Power of Veto competitions and the live evictions.
However, Big Brother: Over the Top will stream every single day Monday through Sunday with major format changes -- including a Weekly Replay, Safety Ceremonies, and live Diary Room sessions.
Voting is currently open on CBS.com for fans to choose whether they'd like to see Big Brother 18 houseguest Jozea Flores on the new online series or Season 17's Jason Roy. Both guys have huge personalities and are known to spark drama in the house. Voting will close on September 27 at 3PM ET/PT.
The last remaining houseguest on Big Brother: Over the Top will win $250,000, a smaller grand prize than the $500,000 given to the winners of the regular televised editions of Big Brother.
