Julie Chen Moonves Is Set to Return to ‘Big Brother’ for Season 22 as Its Host

The CBS show Big Brother is returning for yet another season and the beloved host Julie Chen Moonves is coming along with it.


Former "The Talk" co-host, Julie Chen Moonves, has signed a deal with CBS to host the 22nd season of Big Brother. The Viacom-merging company is set to air the upcoming season next summer.



" reported that “finer details” regarding the contract had to be worked out between the parties, the real concern about the outlet was to confirm if Moonves wanted to come back for another season.



Moonves' fans took a sigh of relief when they found out that she would still be hosting the reality show. The fans were concerned about her departure from CBS permanently after she announced her exit from CBS' daytime talk show, "The Talk." She was later replaced by 'DWTS' judge, Carrie Ann Inaba.

"I have been at "The Talk" since the day it started nine years ago, and the cast, crew, and staff have become family to me over the years," she said in a Twitter video.


"But right now I need to spend more time at home, with my husband and our young son, so I've decided to leave "The Talk." I want to thank everyone at the show for the wonderful years together."


After a 24-year run as the Chairman and CEO of CBS, Julie Chen Moonves' husband, Les Moonves, was out of the company. The lawsuit for his removal lasted months, and a sum of $20 million was due for donations to support the #MeToo movement.

According to “Deadline,” Les was negotiating an exchange package of $100 million with the company, but the company has not given a final statement on the settlement.


Moonves stood with her husband after the allegations were filed and posted a tweet about her belief that Les was innocent. "I have known my husband, Leslie Moonves, since the mid-90s, and I have been married to him for almost 14 years," Moonves wrote on Twitter.

"Leslie is a good man and loving father, devoted husband and inspiring corporate leader. He has always been a kind, decent and moral human being. I fully support my husband and stand by him and his statement."

The allegations and other controversies surrounding the host and her husband have long since disappeared. It may be safe to assume that the new season of Big Brother will have the same Julie Chen charm to it.
