Big Brother 14 Cast Revealed

The CBS summer reality hit Big Brother returns this Thursday, July 12 for its 14th season. The cast was announced this week but as per usual, fans and houseguests are told to “expect the unexpected” or in our case, expect the expected drama. Four mystery guests will be added to the mix of blonde moments and washboard abs. Former Big Brother contestants will be brought back into the game for this year’s twist. Relax everyone: I can assure you it won’t be Brendan and Rachel!

Big Brother executive producer, Allison Grodner has said: “Four epic players, including fan favorites and winners, are coming in with their own agenda. It’s a game within a game, if you will.” Grodner also clarified that none of the returning players are from last season. The four returning houseguests will be revealed on the show’s season premiere next week.
