CBS is planning a nationwide casting for "Big Brother 9" at locations all around the country between Saturday, Nov. 17 and Saturday, Dec. 8.
Applications are now being accepted online at CBS.com for the ninth installment of the reality series, which will be broadcast next year.
Early Show co-anchor Julie Chen will return as the show's host.
"Big Brother 9" will follow a group of strangers living together in a house outfitted with dozens of cameras and microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week. One by one, the contestants will vote each other out of the house until, at the end of three months, the last remaining houseguest will win the grand prize.
