The 12 houseguests who will be featured in “Big Brother Over The Top” have just been named.
According to Big Brother Network, the total number of contestants in the first season of the CBS All Access show is actually 13. Fans are still voting to give either “Big Brother” Season 18 alum Jozea or Season 17 alum Jason a second chance at playing the game. The publication is speculating that Jason will be the one joining the cast of “Big Brother Over The Top,” which will premiere online on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
For now, check out the new housemates below!

12. Whitney Hogg, 21, is a medical assistant from Whitesburg, Kentucky.
Meanwhile, some of the houseguests spoke with The Hollywood Reporter to share their game strategies, their take on showmances, favorite contestants and more.
Massongill said that he’s open to having a showmance as long as he connects well with another houseguest. “I’m not going in there to find one. I’d rather have a couple of allies and then have something develop with another person,” he said.
Ridolfi opened up about her strategy and said that she doesn’t have any plans to malign or mistreat the houseguests just so she can be the big winner. “I have a strategy, but I’m not here to ruin lives and destroy people.”
As early as now, CBS is already seemingly rooting for one contestant to win the $250,000 grand prize. The network dubbed Cornbread as the life of the party. According to the houseguest, he auditioned for “Big Brother” several times, but it was only now that his personality shined and that he was given the chance to be part of the show.
“Big Brother Over The Top” will air on CBS All Access on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. ET.
