CBS Unveils Cast For Big Brother 19

Big Brother Season 19 arrives with a two-night premiere on June 28 and 29. I guess last fall’s Big Brother: Over the Top digital installment doesn’t count as an official season. Otherwise, this summer’s cycle would be Season 20. Sucks for the online crew 😉

Details about the house and upcoming twists will be released shortly. But first… the network has unveiled the 16 houseguests competing for the $500,000 grand prize. Surprisingly, there’s not a returnee among them or a familiar face from another CBS reality show. There were rumors circulating that Parvati Shallow from Survivor was in the mix. Guess not.

Instead, we have a wide array of folks with some interesting occupations. Form a rodeo clown to a cosplay artist and a self-proclaimed fitness superstar to a stay-at-home dad, you have it all. Check out the guinea pigs below that will be on display 24/7 in the live feeds. Place your bets on who you think is going to win and your picks for hottest houseguest. My money is on silver fox Matthew Clines for both.
