Rede Globo began allowing online applications on April 9, 2019, however open casting calls did not begin until a later date. In a later article and video on Twitter, it was confirmed that the HouseGuests would be made up of both applicants and special guests.
On April 13, 2020 it was announced that show was extended to end on April 27, 2020, making the season a total of 98 days. After a series of careful evaluations, a decision was made to extend the season to bring fun and joy to Brazilian citizens during a worrisome time due to the COVID-19 virus.
- Celebrities vs. Civilians : For the first time in Big Brother Brazil history, Celebrities will compete with Civilians.
- House Division: On the first night, the house will be divided by a wall with Celebrities on one side and Civilians on the other. They will not be able to see each other or be in contact with one another.
- Super HOH: Along with it's regular powers, this season the HOH will also be tasked with splitting their housemates into haves and have-nots as well as choosing what and how much each group will be eating. This HOH will also be awarded their own private party at the end of their HOH reign.
- Back-And-Forth: The two or more HouseGuests nominated by the house, a competition or a twist will compete against each other for one last chance to save themselves from the block.
- Cell Phones: Each HouseGuests will be able to use a cellphone to capture moments in the house during a time determined by production. The cell phone will only allow them to post photos and videos to #FeedBBB and see what other HouseGuests are saying about each other. It will not allow contact with the outside world.
- Wildcard Contestants: During Week 2, four additional housemates, Daniel Caon, Daniel Lenhardt, Ivy Moraes and Renata Dornelles, entered a secret location. Brazil was tasked with voting for one man and one woman to enter the game as an official houseguest. Daniel Lenhardt and Ivy Moraes received the most votes and entered the game.
- White Room: During Week 7, three housemates would be chosen to enter the White Room where one or all of them would be nominated. Felipe Prior, Gizelly Bicalho and Manu Gavassi were the three chosen to enter. Manu pressed the red button, officially nominating herself and saving Felipe and Gizelly from nominations.
