It would have been terrible

BB17 kinda turned to trash once Laura got evicted (welp I didn't realize she got evicted 4 days before the final, it felt like she was gone for much longer) so 36 days without her and Evelyn/Jayne not even making the final sounds terrifying.

96 days of Hughie would've meant the courtroom bull**** would've been forgotten about and he probably would've beat Jason! Anyway a 90+ day series would've been a great idea for an already solid series and I feel it had enough of a diverse cast to be worth a lot longer than being the shortest civilian series in the show. As an added bonus it also would've stopped the worst month of TV ever happening with CBB18

That would have been awful

Around 70 days with no annihilation week would have been better than what we got though

Probably not that long would have been needed, but BB17 was definitely too short.

BB17 was the first cast since BB13 that actually would’ve fully sustained a 10 week series imo

True. I remember feeling during the final that they had another two weeks left in them.

Even with the abysmal production, i think the Cast would've been able to keep it going and entertaining.

i don't think the same could be said for 18

As messy as 18 was it felt paced properly as an 8 week series, 17 felt like it was a normal length series that was abruptly cut short </3

18 could have lost a week tbh. At least then we wouldn’t have had to contend with that godawful episode where the ex housemates turned up just to argue with each other.

Imagine them trying to get the housemate numbers down with only 46 days they had 11 housemates on day 46 (which is bang on half of the cast size )

IMO, the cast size should've been cut shorter for BB18 to accommodate for the shorter series length, whereas BB17 should've had an extra 2 or 3 weeks

18 felt like a 13-week series crammed into a 7-week series.
