Big Brother: Over the Top is the first season of the American reality television series Big Brother that will air exclusively online. This is the first edition of the program to air during the fall television time period and the second edition to air outside of the summer television time period. This will be the first season not to air on CBS, which has aired the program since the first season; instead, it will be shown exclusively on CBS All Access, which has been the home of the live Internet feeds since 2015.
A typical week of Big Brother: Over the Top contained four podcasts, split between Rob Cesternino and Jordan Parhar, due to the former's commitment with the Survivor season. Jordan produced a live show after the airing of the weekly episode on Wednesday night, as well as a follow up podcast on Sunday, while Rob released podcasts on Tuesday and Friday covering the action going on in the house during the week.
For the first time, RHAP had a Big Brother East Coast live show, while Rob was in New York City during Week 4 for the live Survivor Know-it-Alls. A number of Big Brother alumni from the tristate area were in attendance, as well as Jordan and the Live Feed Correspondents.
Parallel to Over the Top, coverage ran the search for the next Live Feed Correspondent. The search took place over several weeks and entailed applicants appearing on podcasts with the current Live Feed Correspondents, Jordan, and Rob. In the end, Melissa Deni was declared the winner of the "So You Think You Can Podcast" competition on December 1.
