Meanwhile, Hollywood Unlocked shared the photo on Instagram and received mixed reactions from users in the comments section.
“I definitely didn’t like the 1st hair, I’m not so sure about this either on her.. Maybe it will grow on me. Hm,” one commenter wrote on Instagram.
“A mess then and now!! Try again,” another wrote.
“I thought this was a black woman at first. She looks good,” a third user wrote.
“I thought this was Erica Campbell,” another person wrote.
While Moonves’ new style sparked conversation on social media, fans also commented on what they expect to see from the new season. The show follows a group of people living under one roof, with cameras documenting their whereabouts 24/7.
As Blavity reported, fans were calling for former contestant Kyle Capener’s removal after he stated that he wanted an all-white alliance and made comments that viewers deemed racist about POC contestants. He was later voted out of the house in September 2022.
