Perez Hilton would go on to leak that musician Todrick Hall was asked to participate, but declined.[26] In addition, he spoiled that Wilson Phillips singer, Carnie Wilson had initially signed to compete in the show, but had to back out a week prior due to health conditions.[27]

Controversies

Julie Chen Hosting

The media speculated that Julie Chen Moonves might not continue hosting the series after her husband Les Moonves' departure from the CBS Corporation on September 9, 2018 because of multiple sexual misconduct allegations.[33] Chen-Moonves has been the host of the American adaption of the format since the debut of Big Brother in the United States. She subsequently stepped down as a co-host of The Talk on September 18, 2018 while continuing to host season 20.[34] CBS confirmed on November 27, 2018 that Chen-Moonves would host the second season of Celebrity Big Brother.[35] She later confirmed her own involvement on Twitter and Instagram on January 10, 2018, almost a month after CBS announced that they were not giving Les a severance pay.[36][37]
