AceShowbiz - A handful of U.S. "Big Brother All-Stars" have been kicked off the upcoming reality TV show after testing positive for COVID-19.
Promoting the new series, which debuts on Wednesday (August 05), host Julie Chen reveals all the hopefuls were forced into quarantine after undergoing a battery of tests to make sure they were coronavirus-free - and some didn't make it.
"We flew in a bunch of people; more than 16," she tells CBSN Los Angeles. "And some people I thought were definitely going in the house, they tested positive for COVID-19 so they couldn't go in."
Chen reveals she'll discover who the 16 finalists are when America finds out, "I don't even know all the confirmed 16 Houseguests. I know it's eight women and eight men, all-stars that we all know from seasons past."
