Season 16 of "Big Brother" will premiere on CBS on Wednesday, July 25 at 8 p.m. EDT and Thursday, July 26 at 9 p.m. EDT.

Ready for a new season of “Big Brother”? CBS has released the new cast members for the 2014 season, which is promising to be the most “twisted” yet.

“Big Brother” host Julie Chen revealed that one twist will allow two houseguests to become the “Head of Household” (HOH) each week. The title will give the two houseguests special privileges – like a separate suite in the house and the ability to nominate other houseguests for eviction. However the HOH will not be safe from eviction.

The second twist for the season will introduce “Team America,” an “interactive element” that will allow fans of the show to “significantly influence the game.”

Sixteen houseguests will enter – but only one will walk away with the $500,000 grand prize. Meet the new housemates before the hit CBS reality show premieres on Wednesday, June 25 and Thursday, June 26:
