Big Brother Julie Chen - H 2014

CBS has announced the new batch of houseguests set to compete on season 17 of Big Brother.

Unlike last season, which boasted 16 contestants, the new crop of competitors revealed totals only 14, which is suspicious in Big Brother world. With a schedule set for 97 days in the Big Brother house, one can suspect the show to reveal a few more surprises and potential houseguests when the hit returns on Wednesday, June 24, and Thursday, June 25, for a two-night premiere. 

For now, fans will have to place their bets on the following crop of newbies, ranging from a supermarket cashier to a professional poker player. Will one contestant hold the cards all summer long like last year's winner Derrick Levasseur? Unlikely. But the new batch below will duke it out in a summer long battle for half a million dollars.
