With 16 new faces there’s no room for retreads. That’s got me thrilled and apparently a lot of you are going to be happy about that too. So who do we have? It’s everything you’ve come to expect from a Big Brother cast, but I’m seriously optimistic with this bunch after reading their bios and trying to get an idea of who they’ll be in the game.
Ages range from 21 to 55 with an average age of 29.6 years so we’ve got a relatively more mature group of HGs for Big Brother this season. I like it. Sure, we’ve got all the young, hot studs and babes, but we’ve also got a nice stock of 30+ players in there to help balance the mindset. Age alone doesn’t give us a great season though. We need great players with a mind to make the drama and entertainment for us as we bang on the glass to make them dance. Nearly time to find out whether or not they’ll deliver.
Read on for this year’s cast of Houseguests and then get ready for them to get the game going ahead of the Big Brother 19 premiere on Wednesday, June 28th at 8/7c on CBS! Watch the HG interviews on All Access & get your Live Feeds too with the Free Trial. All interviews are now available on-demand!
