'Big Brother 16' Houseguests Revealed
It's time to meet the houseguests on Big Brother.
Ranging in age from 21 to 42, the houseguests this season will be introduced to U.S. viewers in two groups — eight on Wednesday, June 25, at 8 p.m., and eight on Thursday, June 26, at 9:01 p.m. — as part of the network's planned two-night premiere event.
The crop of houseguests is an eclectic group that includes a YouTube personality who has more than 188,000 subscribers on his channel, a DJ, an ex-baseball player, a pedicab driver, a esthetician, a police sergeant, a minister and a makeup artist.
Big Brother will have two Head of Households (HOHs) this season, with both responsible for picking two houseguests to put up for eviction. However, the HOH title doesn't guarantee their weekly safety. Other twists involve viewers' participation through Team America and a new competition called Battle of the Block that tie in to the HOH's lack of safety for the week. There will be two more twists as well as a competition that host Julie Chen will announce on premiere night.
