Meet The Big Brother 21 Cast: Houseguests Bios & Pics

Big Brother 21 cast of Houseguests

It’s time to meet your Big Brother 21 cast of Houseguests with the official release and announcement of just who will be filling our summer and screens for BB21 fun! We’ve got sixteen ALL-NEW Houseguests again this year and after last year’s strong season and great ratings, we shouldn’t be surprised by this cast of newbies. I’m excited!

The youngest age is 22 with three HGs in that category then ranging up to 53 as the season’s oldest contender. The rest of the ages are mostly late twenties so overall it feels like a notch older of a group. Not to say they’re any more mature than the last bunch. We’ll have to wait to find out more on that.

Read on for this year’s cast of Houseguests and then get ready for them ahead of the Big Brother 21 premiere on Tuesday, June 25th 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!
