The 23rd cycle of Big Brother is underway with the most diverse cast in the CBS reality show’s history. Viewers were happy to see the network keep its promise to ensure its reality series’ casts are now 50 percent Black, Indigenous and other people of color (BIPOC)—a vow The Eye made back in November.

But the BB casting agents also upped the show’s LGBTQ quotient for Season 23, and with those twin victories for representation, the Big Brother 23 cast better reflects the show’s fanbase.

“The reality TV genre is an area that’s especially underrepresented, and needs to be more inclusive across development, casting, production and all phases of storytelling,” CBS President and CEO George Cheeks explained in a statement last fall.
