Big Brother announces season 19 cast


CBS has released details on the 16 new guinea pigs contestants that will be competing for $500,000 this summer in the Big Brother house. It is a cast filled with attractive faces (SHOCKER!), incredible names (Christmas, Raven), and even more incredible professions (Fitness Superstar, Dog Walker, Cosplay Artist, Rodeo Clown, VIP Concierge).

After last fall’s Big Brother: Over the Top digital installment that streamed on CBS All Access, season 19 of the reality franchise will be back on network television, debuting with a two-night premiere on CBS June 28 and 29. (However, CBS All Access subscribers will be treated to an early live-stream of contestant interviews today at 11 a.m. ET.)

Additional details on both the house itself and some of the twists for the new season will be released shortly. But first… you can meet the 16 contestants vying for both camera time and the money by perusing their photos and mini-bios below. Also feel free to place your bets now on who is most likely to win, and who will be voted out first — which, I suppose, some could consider as winning in its own right.
