'Big Brother' Season 22 Crew Will be in Quarantine Bubble Like Cast https://t.co/44KD5uVP09— TMZ (@TMZ) July 17, 2020
With filming delayed due to COVID-19, production still plans to film Big Brother Season 22, an all-star season, though cast members are currently in two-week quarantine and waiting to be tested for the virus. The crew will also be in a quarantine bubble during filming. According to sources, crew members will stay in RV units by the "Big Brother house" set, with time off between filming, as opposed to them all being behind-the-scenes for three consecutive months. Crew members will be swapped out monthly. As the cast members are already in an isolated bubble already during traditional filming of the show, producers hope these extra measures will help keep the process safe.
A number of potential houseguests arrived last week, including season 19 winner Josh Martinez, season 8 runner-up Daniele Donato, season 18 alum Paulie Calafiore, season 18 winner Nicole Franzel, season 20 runner-up Tyler Crispen, three-time contestant Janelle Pierzina, season 14 winner Ian Terry, season 12 winner Hayden Moss and season 20 alum Bayleigh Dayton.
In the event a cast member tests positive and is forced to drop, producers have an "alternate" list already arranged. Julie Chen Moonves is set to return as the host, though there is no word yet on her quarantine situation during filming (which will presumably not have a live audience).
