“Big Brother” is back. And, according to media reports, it looks like Season 18 of the long-running CBS series, hosted by Julie Chen, may be its most dramatic yet.
Premiering Wednesday, June 22, the reality-TV show will feature not only a slew of fresh faces during the 2016 competition but also a few familiar ones.
The Hollywood Reporter dished that the siblings of two former Houseguests will compete in Season 18. Paul Calafiore, the brother of Season 16’s runner-up Cody Calafiore, and Tiffany Rousso, the younger sister of Season 17’s Vanessa Rousso, will enter the “Big Brother” house in hopes of doing what their kin couldn’t: take home the $500,000 grand prize.
Although fans will meet the contestants during Season 18’s two-night, three-house premiere, CBS is giving them an early peek at the Houseguests set to stir up trouble. Check out the 12 competitors in the forthcoming season below:
Paul Abrahamian: 23-year-old clothing designer from Tarzana, California.
