How Big Brother Host Julie Chen Moonves Really Felt About Her ‘Chenbot’ Nickname At First


Julie Chen Moonves has been the host of Big Brother since its beginning, and while she’s one of the highlights of the series these days, that wasn’t always the case. Recently, Moonves recalled the lukewarm reception both she and the show received in the early years from viewers, and she opened up about how she really felt about the nickname “Chenbot.”

Those who have a Paramount+ subscription can re-live Julie Chen Moonves’ early seasons on Big Brother, and see how the nickname Chenbot came to be. Moonves talked about it in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, and she gave her perspective on why fans might’ve found her so robotic:

They hated me in the beginning as a matter of fact. That nickname Chenbot? It was meant as an insult because when I first started the show I had come from CBS News in the morning. I was trying to be super credible, and someone on the internet put together all of my episodes saying the famous catchphrase ‘But first,’ and he said, ‘She’s like a robot. We call her the Chenbot.’
