In a stunning twist during the premiere of Big Brother season 25, fans were left in awe as a surprise contestant entered the game. 21 years of anticipation packed into one exciting moment, as Cirie Fields, a former cast member from Survivor seasons 12, 16, 20, and 34, made her way into the Big Brother house.
On Wednesday, August 2, a clip was posted to the official Big Brother Twitter page, revealing Cirie’s return. The video showcased her electrifying words, “Surprise, guess who’s back? It is me, Cirie, from Survivor seasons 12, 16, 20, and 34. If you don’t know me, you’re about to get to know me on Big Brother.” Big Brother fans could hardly contain their excitement as they speculated on the implications of this unexpected turn of events.
The official Big Brother Twitter page captioned the post, “Surprise… The #BB25 Multiverse releases another twist… A 17th houseguest… #BBCirie from @survivorcbs!” The news spread like wildfire as fans eagerly awaited the premiere and the live move-in.
Hours before the premiere, the show’s producers hinted at the arrival of a 17th player, leaving fans buzzing with anticipation. The reality series’ official Twitter page teased the mystery announcement by asking fans to guess who the mystery houseguest would be. Social media erupted with predictions, and among the popular names mentioned was Cirie, a 53-year-old Survivor veteran. Interestingly, it was revealed on Monday, July 31, that Cirie’s son Jared was one of the 16 houseguests participating this season, further fueling speculation.
Cirie’s impressive Survivor career includes appearances in four seasons: 2006’s Panama, 2008’s Micronesia, 2010’s Heroes Vs. Villains, and 2017’s Game Changers. Although she has yet to win the million-dollar prize, Cirie is widely regarded as one of the greatest players to have graced the Survivor franchise. In fact, earlier this year, she emerged as the champion of Peacock’s The Traitors, further solidifying her status as a formidable competitor.
In an exclusive interview with Us Weekly following her win on The Traitors, Cirie expressed her desire to compete on Big Brother. She revealed, “I would love to go on Big Brother! I think if I would’ve done Big Brother first… hands down I would’ve won.” This revelation only added to the excitement surrounding Cirie’s entrance into the Big Brother house.
While fans speculated about Cirie’s return, another fan-favorite, Britney Haynes, was also considered a potential surprise contestant. Prior to the cast’s unveiling, Britney, alongside Frankie Grande and Danielle Reyes, broke into the house with a time laser to rectify their past game mistakes. However, their plan didn’t unfold as expected and instead unleashed a new twist into the house.
Despite the speculation, Britney herself took to Twitter on Wednesday to dismiss theories about her participation in the game. Posting a picture of herself holding a piece of paper with Wednesday’s date edited on it from her Amazing Race days, Britney playfully quipped, “To dispel the rumors, I am obliging to the request of a picture of me holding today’s newspaper. This is just how they look in Greece.” Thus, Britney’s fans had to wait a little longer to see her return.
With the unexpected arrival of Cirie Fields, the dynamics within the Big Brother house are set to shift dramatically. Fans can be sure that this season will be one like no other, filled with surprises and thrilling moments. Big Brother season 25 has captured the attention of viewers worldwide, and the journey has only just begun. Stay tuned for the exhilarating twists and turns that await the houseguests in their quest for the ultimate prize.
