CBS has revealed to us that Big Brother 11 will feature 12 houseguests! There had been a lot of speculation after Julie Chen informally announced there would be 10 houseguests. Thankfully that turned out to not be true or we’d lose a few precious weeks of BB11 fun.

Tipster Heather also learned that Big Brother will announce the 12 houseguests in the first week of July, much as we’d expect but always good to have it confirmed by CBS. Less than 4 weeks until we know!

Let’s hear your thoughts on the upcoming season of BB11!
