Meet the Big Brother 19 Houseguests here with our cast review complete with bios and pics of this season’s sixteen All-New HGs. That’s right, all happy, new faces are about to great you and keep us company this summer for BB19 starting Wednesday, June 28th on CBS! Not a Vet in sight here.
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.
Here we’ve got a Rodeo Clown, a “Fitness Superstar” and national bestseller, oh yes a VIP Concierge, and more than one Houseguest that looks up to James Huling. While some of the bios give off that “I’m a brand new superfan” it also seems like we’ve got some serious fans in the mix for BB19.
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!

Kinda looks like the same old blueprint to me. Who wants to bet Kevin is back home taking care of the kids in no time.
Yes the poor token old codger is usually the first to go LOL!
I don’t think so, he actually has more going for him personality wise than any of the other guys! Remember Chicken George? As much as I could not stand him he made it to final four the second time he was on. The houseguests usually don’t see the older ones as a threat so they can slide through easier.
Jerry is 20 more years when he competed in season 10 and he lasted through to the final three. Even as superbly abrasive and a big threat the guy was, he managed to work his relationships incredibly well being on the block on eviction night four times.
I didn’t watch that season. In fact, I was so turned off by Evil Dick and his daughter that I stopped watching altogether in the middle of Evil Dick’s victory season and just returned last summer.
Will be interesting to see how the upcoming season players who admire Dick will behave. If they’re anything like him I hope they get an early boot.
Oh I don’t recall him.
I actually stopped watching during the season with Evil Dick. The guy literally turned my stomach. )Grodi was probably drooling over him. )
I just started watching again last summer. I really enjoyed it until Paul’s suspicious choice of Nicole for final 2 and her subsequent win. Nucorey also sickened me, but in a (slightly) more bearable way than Dick.
Can’t judge a book by its cover anymore! LOLOL
I remember your name from last year. I was reading but not commenting
I’m betting on josh going first
If josh isn’t first, then I can see him getting kicked off the show. I can’t see him rule following for 3 months. This isn’t going to be like OTT with lax rules.
Yes he looks like the Howie of the bunch.
I’m hoping Ramses is the first! LOLOL He’s quite annoying to me, like a little brother that can’t stop following you around! hahaha
Idk, I think there is a little more diversity, at least in ages, this season. Besides Kevin, there are five HG in their 30’s this season . Last season I think the only HG over 30 was Glenn & Frank and maybe Tiffany.
Interesting bunch and yes, I can’t believe many of them are my age.
I feel so old (26).
The casting director clearly works off a template….”The Jock”, “The Nerd”, “The Old Guy”, “The Quirky Girl”, “The Hot Girl”, “The Cowboy”. Over it.
Absolutely. I keep seeing Steve Moses over and over again. Didn’t like him the first time and he won.
Every. Single. Year. Sadly, this is nothing new. Happens most every season. Frequently very cookie cutter.
Their personalities tend to make up for it.
This is true. Which is why, even after the same thing every season, I still watch! I will always complain but will always be loyal af to BB! Can’t wait.
If only we had Audrey to convince your gender chart, lol.
Yey, Virginia represent realness!
Now I need someone to represent Falls Church, VA again.
I know, right? I was thrilled to see 3 VA’s (even though one has moved down to NC). Seems like we rarely get local representation. Not that it matters, but it’s still fun to see.
Sadly no one from Maryland or my birth state of Indiana! Oh well! VA is close enough.
Still waiting for them to cast someone from Utah. Almost every other reality show is full of Utah contestants and several networks film in my Utah city(and I don’t live anywhere near salt lake). I know one person that applied this year and I’m surprised BB doesn’t go her type, good tv, IMO.
Forgive me if I disagree with VA being close enough to MD :P
Virginia is only an hour away from me! :-)
Just wondering…..Why is the stay at home dad in a vest and tie?
Maybe he was looking for a job?
or business casual is the dress code for stay at home dads…
He was a male model years ago and says he wants to get back into it. I wonder if that is the reason? I wanted to like an older player but not sure if I can because of his family.
who is is family?
His parents have an interesting past. You can google it. Normally I would separate kids from parents, but it Kevin is quoted about his opinions.
He looks very similar to the guy on Shark Tank, don’t he?
Yes, his eyes are a match to Robert from shark tank.
He’s incognito!!! :-)
Because he pissed off someone in wardrobe?
This cast looks a lot older than ones we’ve had in the past like, what, three seasons?
Yup…never knew a Christmas that worked out!!! :-)
Daddy will cook and clean…he’ll stay for a while if he has any social game.
Looks like he’s not the only daddy there.
“same typical cast” the comments say yet there is more over 30s this time which in bb world is old :P
A Marine on BB is not so typical, I’m sure he’s going to be very entertaining.
He’ll probably survive being a Have Not better than any of his fellow HGs, that’s for sure.
My yearly titles for the HG’s:
1. Alex Ow, the Wow Jasmine Trias of Thousand Oaks, CA
2. Cameron Heard, the Persistent Bio-Boy of North Aurora, IL
3. Christine Abbott, the ABS-solutely Battack Girl of Lynchburg, VA
4. Cody Nickson, the Sporty Construction Dude of Lake Mills, IA
5. Dominque Cooper, the Über-Happy Sass Girl of Tuskagee, AL
6. Elena Davies, the La Voz Diosa of Foxworth, TX
7. Jason Dent, the Clownie Cowboy of Humeston, IA
8. Jessica Graf, the Loud-‘n’-Loyal Lass of Los Angeles, CA
9. Jillian Parker, the Bubbly Ninja-Like Girl of Celebration, FL
10. Josh Martinez, the Head-and-Shoulders Guy of Miami, FL
11. Kevin Schlehuber, the Daddy-Di-Do-Du of Boston, MA
12. Mark Jensen, the Brod-Battack of Grand Island, NY
13. Matthew Clines, the Silver Foxy Reno-Boy of Arlington, VA
14. Megan Lowder, the Lassie-Walker of Cathedral City, CA
15. Ramses Soto, the Attack-on-Otaku of Grand Rapids, MI
16. Raven Walton, the Bailalala Girl of Devalls Bluff, AR
Her name is Christmas Abbott not Christine Abbott.
Probably just a nickname.
I wouldn’t count out the idea of no returnees yet, it’s Big Brother. If I remember correctly, there was only one double eviction last year because they got rid of somebody on day 2. If they do that gimmick again this year, and do more than 1 double eviction, it’s very possible there could be 1 or 2 more houseguests
I’m thinking it will be interesting to see how the 55 yr old will do as he’s closer to my age than the rest…LOLOL
I don’t think he’ll last long with this group. Too much athletisim in this group. 😄
and he seems really obnoxious and cocky
I’m liking the cast, for the most part. Finally there is a better mixture of ages and dare I say types of people, maybe? I loved the shade Jillian threw at Nicole, I like her for that alone! Also nice that half the cast isn’t from Texas, small favors. Mood, optimistic with a hint of cynicism. Let the games begin! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b803c97e534f53fd6e2cb3f8ecb6fe83ddd1c79e94e3eb69e4f5d2d42cbe1b0d.gif :)
I want to see the house when can we see it
Me, too!!!! Me, too!!!
Okay, first than nothing I’m glad that is an all newbies season. I like this cast, not my favorite (I’m just talking based on my first impression), but (once again, based on my first impression) I like more than the cast of the past season, but well, I can give a better opinion until the beginning of the season. Of the cast I’m rooting for Elena (despite she pick James as her favorite houseguest), Jillian, Cameron, Christmas, Cody and Matthew and maybe Jessica, whatever, like I said, I’ll wait until the beginning of the season.
I am loving Elena, Christmas, Cameron, and Megan. I’ve been watching Big Brother since season 5 and this has been the best cast based off of first impressions since season 10.
This is gonna be a blast! The silver-haired hottie, Matthew, gets my vote! And whatever else he’ll let me give him. ;)
I think it would be more interesting and more drama if they would add a bunch of hot bored singles, they would all be hanging out with someone but secretly eyeing someone else. it’s hard to focus on the game when you’re full of jealousy, kind of like “Love island” but not. This is just a bunch of random people with zero chemistry to me. need some spice!
Clearly you have never watched Big Brother before if that is the kind of show you want to watch.
I have watched every episode that’s ever been aired, It was fun watching love blossom with Jeff and Jordan, now it’s nerds and dads and married people, there’s no side drama.. I love Big Brother no matter what, But I like the spice too. when I look at these house guests i don’t even try to guess which might hook up. that’s all lol
Ex On a Beach is probably your kind of show.
Then you clearly have never watched Big Brother, but I feel like if you give it a chance you will be loving it. It’s a social experiment evolved into strategy, not love. BB is like our “summertime football game” rather than a matchmaking guilty pleasure as per say The Bachelor(ette).
I don’t know if you get the replies I have posted to other people, but like I told Hodor.. I have watched every episode that’s ever been aired, It was fun watching love blossom with Jeff and Jordan, now it’s nerds and dads and married people, there’s no side drama.. I love Big Brother no matter what, But I like the spice too. when I look at these house guests i don’t even try to guess which might hook up. that’s all lol
No thanks, I’m done with showmances, especially after last season with Nicole and Corey in bed all of the time. :)
Cody’s canteen coffee cup & Marine Corps Silkie Shorts for the win!!! Haha, cant wait to see this! Semper Fidelis brother!!!
Finally a Maine to watch….
Don’t forget about Jerry from BB10.
Big Brother is like a guest you look forward to seeing every summer. You have some laughs and some ups and downs but even though their inevitable departure means the summer is ending, you’re not all that sad to see them go.
Seems like an interesting bunch.
Welcome back saturn!!!
It’s good to be back!
To early to tell but based first impressions I like Rameses, Cameron, or Jessica to possibly win.
I picked Ramses too, but not sure if the others yet. 😊
I won’t be around the evening of 6/28. I’m going to the Steve Miller/Peter Frampton concert that night! Dangit! But after that, I’ll be around until 7/27, attending high school reunion and then will be in Chicago until 8/4. Then I’ll be seated where I sit now til the end! LOLOL
That sounds like a great show Joni. I love Steve Miller, seen him a bunch of times in my late teens/early 20s.
Always a good time…at least from what I can remember. Hehe😀
I’ve seen Steve Miller three times in my lifetime, but this will be my first time seeing Peter Frampton. Just wish he had all that hair he did in the 70s..LOLOL I was a very deprived teen, but have been making up for lost time since marrying my rock-n-roll type husband 33 years ago! hahaha
where are the big brother network interviews for this cast??
CBS said they didn’t have space for us this year. Sounds more like they just didn’t want us there anymore. Not sure what happened after years of doing them, but I’d guess we won’t get to go anymore.
That’s too bad. Maybe they’ll change their tone next season.
that’s so unfortunate! i always looked forward to seeing your interviews :(
Hello anyone home?
Of course two token black people and 1 asian every year but lets definitely have about 8 white people smh
First, come on Cody, Cameron, Jillian. and (?).. 3 guesses who is going back in the house….
Also I don’t think it is right they allow Christmas to stay in the house. She can’t compete and when she does it’s a half-baked attempt. She should be allowed to join the house another season.
Come on, those kids enjoy Kevin. It’s not like the other seasons where, yes, they would evict the old guy immediate. Not this time, he is holding his own. You go there Mr. Massachusettes!
I love big brother so much
I think that
I think that Paul needs to go! He is absolutely ruining this season of big brother with all his lies and friendship crap that he says. He is wrecking what could be a really good thing between Mark and Elena by filling her head full of lies. I’ve heard so many people say that if he doesn’t go that they are going to stop watching big brother. He is the dirtiest ,lieing, backstabbing player that doesn’t deserve to be in the game. Get rid of PAUL for the sake of the game. He should have never been brought in to start with. Every word that he says is a lie. At least Cody has him pegged right. I hope Mark wins. Good luck Mark.
I have concerns about whether they do any psychological testing prior to choosing the house guests. It appears that they will let just anyone walk into the house who applies because Josh, who not only lacks social skills, clearly has issues with his mental health and I doubt that confinement with strangers in a strange place is healthy for a fragile mind.
Sorry cody next time
I am now hooked on Paul. At first.. nah.. but he has been playing a brilliant game. He got me on his latest comment about how he could sit for hours listening & talking to his grandparents. Being a genealogist buff, and knowing of his Jewish lineage, this fascinates me. Also after watching Big Bro aft dark, Paul is one of the cleanest out of all the other players, good habits, except for the foul mouth. Oh well.. good on you Paul. Hoping you win this year. You deserve it. ~ Rachael
ok I thought it was a real punk move by Josh outing Paul as the planner to get Jason out in the pre recorded message to Jason should he get voted out….But I’m really upset with CBS for allowing that….once a person is voted out, that’s it, no more information except for who you talk to in the jury house..Really think it was a low blow and is going to hurt Paul’s chance of winning. Wait and see….
I was totally happy about that! Was about to stop watching because of the Paul thing. It killed me to see him get a 3 week pass to start the game. He was last years floater/loser. Soo glad the jury saw things my way this year! No more Paul ever! BTW, hated Josh too but wanted him to beat Paul in the finale. Was just a season of everyone letting Paul do what he needed to win. Ridiculous!
