The cast reveal had originally been planned for Monday morning (June 13), but CBS suddenly had a change of heart the night before. Kinda bizarre, and VERY last minute.
It seems the cast reveal will not be a live stream as originally planned either.
Not such a smooth start to BB18...
#MeetTheHGsLive will not be streamed live tomorrow. Cast interviews will be available Tue 4pm ET/1pm PT to #CBSAllAccess subscribers.— Big Brother (@CBSBigBrother) June 13, 2016
6/13 UPDATE: CBS has since said they are delaying the cast release in light of the Orlando shootings. Their official statement:
"In light of the recent tragedy in Orlando, Big Brother Season 18: Meet the Houseguests will not be streamed live today. Cast interviews will be available to CBS All Access subscribers this Tuesday at 1pm PT/4pm ET. We appreciate your understanding."
Needless to say, Big Brother 18 fans aren't exactly thrilled with the news. Here are just a few of the tweets from BB18 fans.

Glad I got a free trial for the feeds. If #BB18 flops it ain't coming out of my pocket. pic.twitter.com/VBlIYHLVzU— ひのれい (@ariesacies) June 13, 2016
