Big Brother USA is gearing up for its 20th season in just a few weeks, and with the cast set to be revealed on Monday, there have been hints that we will see a few familiar faces.
Fansite Hamsterwatch is reporting the cast will consist of 16 new players and four former houseguests set to return. That would bring the total cast number to 20 for the 20th season. If true, the season would be the third straight with returning players.

Hamsterwatch has proven to be a very reliable source over the years. They were the first to break the news that Paul Abrahamian was returning in Season 19.
The rumor contradicts what show producer Allison Grodner said in an interview that Season 20 would feature brand new players with no veterans returning.
If past houseguests are returning, the news will likely anger fans. Viewers were not happy with Paul returning to play a second consecutive year despite being a fan favorite in Season 18. Last season saw the houseguests follow Paul’s lead as he finished in second place once again.
The premiere episode is a 2-hour special, so it seems likely a big twist will be taking place and in season’s past, those have involved veterans coming back to play the game.
Big Brother USA 20 premieres on June 27 on CBS.
