For dedicated fans of Big Brother, the live feeds are an integral part of the experience.

They provide a behind-the-scenes look at the interactions, conflicts, and alliances among houseguests that often go unseen on the televised episodes.

The live feeds offer viewers an opportunity to immerse themselves in the unedited reality of the house. This creates a sense of connection and engagement that goes beyond what is shown on TV.

So, the sudden outage of the live feeds has left several fans feeling disconnected and anxious about missing out on crucial moments.

It’s not Big Brother without live feeds. They should call the Canadian show ‘Step Cousin’ or ‘Across the Street Neighbor’.

The reason behind this

The abrupt termination of the live feed occurred due to contestant Luke Valentine’s utterance of a racial slur on camera, which was in direct violation of the program’s rules. Here’s the clip of it.

Valentine’s departure from the show will be addressed in Thursday night’s episode. So, some viewers speculate that the live feeds will be back after it.

When will live feeds be back?

Also, in response to users queries, Pluto TV support has said that live feeds will be back up shortly. This aligns perfectly with the speculations.

While the delay is undoubtedly frustrating, it reflects the production team’s commitment to addressing the situation responsibly and maintaining the show’s integrity.

We hope that the live feeds will be back up soon.
