This season, the “Celebrity Big Brother” candidates are living together in a total of 34 containers, which are strongly reminiscent of the early days of the show. The site is not in Berlin (2013) or in Cologne-Ossendorf (from 2014), but in Cologne-Bocklemünd. On 378 square meters, the celebrities have access to a living room, bedroom and bathroom, as well as two consultation rooms, a toilet, a lounge, a PENNY market and an inner courtyard. However, there is no longer a luxury area.

In order not to make it too comfortable for them, the broadcaster Sat.1 offers them a shared dormitory and places the toilet on the other side of the courtyard. The residents are therefore allowed to walk outside across the courtyard when the need calls. A buzzer awaits you here, which must be pressed every ten minutes. A team of two takes over the night watch and takes care of the task when the other candidates are asleep.

These 13 celebrities are taking on the challenge this year: In addition to singer Peter Klein and his ex Iris Klein (56), “Big Brother” veteran Jürgen Milski (59), reality TV star Yeliz Koc (29), player wife Dilara Kruse (31), reality star Patricia Blanco (52), ex-“Bachelor” Dominik Stuckmann (31), scandal streamer Ron Bielecki (25), actress Manuela Wisbeck (40), reality star Matthias Mangiapane (40), influencer Paulina Ljubas (26) and magician Philo (41) are also content creator Marco Schlitzer (21).

Starting tomorrow, Monday, November 20th, the station will broadcast the first episode from 8:15 p.m. There is a 24-hour live stream on the Joyn Plus streaming platform. This year, 60 cameras are watching the residents so closely that the TV audience won’t miss a thing.
