Julie Chen returned as host Big Brother 22: All-Stars. The CBS host is back to the historic season that brought housewives from the past back. With COVID-19 still flourishing across the United States, additional security measures have been put in place that eliminated a live audience. Thursday, August 13 was the first live show and the first exposed player. What caught the fans’ attention, however, was the unusual deregistration Chen had at the end of the episode.
How was the first live show?
The show started as usual with Chen giving an overview of where things are in the game. On the block were Keesha and Kevin when Enzo did not end up using his Power of Veto to save one of Cody’s nominations.
When it was time for the nominated homeowners to make their allegations to their colleagues, Keesha said she felt “some energy” in the house. She ends up thanking “most” for the participant’s good luck. On the other hand, Kevin said he did not have many friends in life and that he had been able to connect with some in BB House.
As head of the household, Cody did not participate in the eviction process. Chen called each household one by one into the daycare room to cast their vote to postpone. It was a unanimous decision that sent Keesha packing.
Before Chen revealed who the vulnerable homemaker was, she reminded Keesha and Kevin to wear their face mask and go straight to the empty chair for their exit interview. When the doors opened, there was no cheering from an audience or a hug from Chen. In order not to make the extreme silence awkward, the music played louder in the background.

Julie Chen unsubscribes in a usual way
After Chen interviewed Keesha and played her farewell messages from the people who had just thrown her out, it was time for the HOH contest. This week, players had to answer true or false after watching a set of videos. Chen asked a question about what they had just seen and had to answer. In the end, it was Memphis who took the key and will nominate two household colleagues for deportation.
Fans who have seen Older brother over the years, know that live postponement shows are formulaic. There’s a process that CBS has not dared to mess with for quite some time. The script has been the same for many seasons, so when there is a change, fans will see them.

Let’s all remember when Chen started logging out as Chen Moonves using her husband’s last name.
In tonight’s show, Chen said, “Remember the golden rule, do to others as you would have them do to you.”
Fans react in confusion
It didn’t take long before fans tweeted during the live show that they were confused with Chen’s quote. In comments online, viewers tried to decipher what the host meant.
“I was wondering if it was meant as a message to the audience or to the audience about the households,” a fan tweeted.
“Reading too much into things is my specialty, but what if she thinks the first few who are voted out will turn against those who threw them out?” asked and hurt.
“I have a guess – something to do with Sumner Redstone’s death. But that’s just a wild guess, ”a Twitter user remarked.
Fans will definitely be eager to see the next live show to see how Chen logs off.
Older brother broadcast on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 20 ET at CBS.
