Just hours after Julie Chen left THE TALK, many are wondering if she’ll stay on as the host of Big Brother

Just hours after Julie Chen left THE TALK, many are wondering if she’ll stay on as the host of Big Brother.

A source close to the the network’s reality competition show tells PEOPLE. “She knows everyone’s name on the crew, and she is very involved. The last few weeks have been different, though,” the source adds. “She comes in, does what she has to do, and leaves. She doesn’t make small talk; she doesn’t talk to the crew. She comes in, does her job, and leaves. It’s clear you can’t approach her. If she’s not on camera, she’s either on her phone or she retreats to her room. It’s like a different host. It’s not that other people can’t host a show like this, but I don’t know how you get someone who cares as much as she does. It feels like she’s totally checked out of Big Brother, which makes everyone nervous.”
