The new cast of Big Brother Over The Top will be revealed this Monday morning, Sept. 26, 2016 by CBS as we head toward the season premiere of BBOTT on Wednesday the 28th. In the first twist of the season fans will be voting for one bonus Houseguest, a former veteran, to return to the game.

Big Brother Over The Top vote: Jason vs Jozea

Last night Julie Chen confirmed the new BBOTT season cast would include 12 all-new faces along with one veteran player, either Jason Roy from BB17 or Jozea Flores from BB18 and now CBS has shared more details on what those faces and names will be announced. Not only that, but voting is now open for the 13th HG spot with a deadline of next Monday.

Best part of this early cast news so far is the confirmation that the first twelve players are totally new. Though after BB18’s results I imagine they may not let any Veteran HG stick around too long! Then again, maybe they won’t be any smarter about it than this last group was.

With the shortened season of Big Brother Over The Top running just ten weeks instead of the thirteen weeks we just watched it’s no surprise that we’ll be getting a shorter list of Houseguests for this new series installment. Thirteen HGs and 10 weeks to run the game gives us very little time for returning HGs like we saw this season on Big Brother 18.

You can go to right now and cast your first 20 votes then return each day between now and Monday morning when the poll closes and the results are tallied. We won’t know until Wednesday night which Vet player has won his way back in to the Big Brother house. Personally, I’ve got my fingers cross for Jason Roy though Jozea’s delusions would surely be entertaining again.

We’ll have all the BBOTT cast details for you Monday morning starting at 10AM ET (7AM PT) so be sure to join us on Facebook, Twitter, & by Email Updates to make sure you don’t miss the news. You can also download our free Big Brother App for alerts and updates there too.

Along with the official voting as you can vote in our poll here and share your thoughts on who you want to get back in the game. Or maybe you don’t want any Vets playing again. Tell us what you think and then get ready for Monday’s reveal & Wednesday’s premiere!
