The press release also referred to Chen as “Julie Chen Moonves,” as she continues to support her husband, former CBS CEO Leslie “Les” Moonves, amid his sexual misconduct scandal.
Speculation as to whether or not Chen, who has been hosting the reality TV competition for 18 years, would return to CBB heightened after CBS announced that Moonves was no longer the chairman and CEO of the network following multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
“[Julie] has always been very hands-on as the host,” a source close to the network’s reality competition show previously told PEOPLE. “She knows everyone’s name on the crew, and she is very involved. She’s been doing this show for 18 years; she’s the face of Big Brother. A lot of the crew members are millennials who grew up watching her, and she has been so great to them. She’s very approachable, and she really cares about making the show as good as possible.”
The two-night premiere of Celebrity Big Brother airs on Monday, Jan. 21 and Tuesday, Jan. 22 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
