CBS have finally today announced the 16 new houseguests who will embark on the 24th season of Big Brother, which is due to begin with a live 90-minute premiere event tomorrow, Wednesday July 6 on CBS.
This season’s cast includes an attorney, a Las Vegas performer, a hypnotherapist, a private chef, a chemical processing engineer, an interior designer and a personal stylist, among others.
With never-before-seen challenges, these 16 Houseguests are in for the summer of their lives at “BB Fest.”
Also, a new twist will send the Houseguests scrambling, and, beginning on premiere night, the opportunity for America to vote will impact the game.
Beginning Sunday, July 10, the series will air Sundays and Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and Thursdays (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT), featuring the live eviction show hosted by Julie Chen Moonves.
The following 16 new Houseguests will spend the summer competing for the $750,000 grand prize, in what Big Brother has dubbed as the “BB Motel” – more details to be announced soon.
