After a three-year hiatus, Celebrity Big Brother is back for Season 3, with 11 new famous faces signing up as Big Brother housemates.
The launch show took place on Wednesday, February 2, and the much-loved reality series is set to conclude on Wednesday, February 23.
So, when is the highly anticipated first eviction? Newsweek has everything you need to know.
When Is the First Eviction?
The first eviction on Celebrity Big Brother Season 3 is going to be happening a lot sooner than you might think.
On Friday, February 4, the first contestant will leave the Big Brother house.
Friday’s show will begin at 8 p.m. ET and will end at 10 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount+.
The new series is the shortest season in the show’s history, airing for just three weeks.
Host Julie Chen Moonves confirmed to US Weekly that two contestants will be leaving the series every week, if not more.
She shared: “I’m ready for Season 3 of Celebrity Big Brother. I think everybody is. Fans can expect the fastest season of any Big Brother, ever. We are evicting two celebrities every week, at least.”
Already at risk of elimination in Week 1 is Todd Bridges, who opted to sit out of the first Head of the Household competition and serve as its master of ceremonies. As a result, he isn’t guaranteed immunity from eviction.
As part of the competition, the contestants had to be lifted up into the air and remain as upright as possible, all while slime was poured all over them. UFC fighter Miesha “Cupcake” Tate was the eventual winner, meaning she gets the final say on who is up for the first week of eviction.
At the moment, who she is set to pick remains unknown, but audiences are set to find out on Thursday, February 3, with the eviction taking place the following evening.
However, eagle-eyed Big Brother fans have spotted that live feeds, as promised by Paramount+, won’t be available until after the live eviction on Friday, causing many to speculate that someone has already left the competition. Newsweek has contacted Paramount+ for comment.
Fans have also been sharing who they think will be the first to exit the competition.
One fan tweeted: “This is my predicted eviction order with Carson’s first boot and Teddi winning #cbbus3.”
A second fan joked: “Anyways I hope Cynthia comes with some nice wigs and dresses for eviction night. #CBBUS3.”
A third fan chimed in: “Is there an eviction Thursday? If so I’m hoping it’s Teddi Grinning face with smiling eyes #CBBUS3”
