The moment has come, Big Brotherfans! It’s time to find out who’s in the cast of Big Brother 16. CBS announced today, June 19, the 16 lucky contestants who will soon become houseguests and begin competing for $500K and all the glory of being a Big Brother winner.
There was a lot of speculation that there could be houseguests from previous seasons returning this year for another All-Star season, but now that we know who’s in the cast that rumor has officially been shut down. While all 16 players are new to the game, there is one surprising casting decision: Ariana Grande’s big brother, Frankie Grande, made the cut!
These new houseguests will have to adapt to a whole new game this time around, because host Julie Chen revealed this season’s big twist yesterday, June 18, on The Talk. Basically there will be two Heads of Household — meaning there will be four people on the block — each week. And, with the addition of a new challenge, “The Battle of the Block,” anyone can go from “zero to hero,” meaning even the HOH isn’t safe.
