CBS has begun to reveal the Big Brother Reindeer Games cast for its (debut? first of more to come?) holiday season mini-series. Choosing to drop the big news late at night mid week is a very CBS thing to do, so why not. Here we go.

The first several names were released Wednesday night and the rest are expected either Thursday or possibly spread out over the next few days. Remember, CBS has promised us “Big Brother Legends” as the season’s players. At this point it sounds like it’ll only be former Houseguests rather than any crossovers from other series.

Reindeer Games Cast List:

  1. Xavier Prather
  2. Nicole Franzel
  3. Cody Calafiore
  4. Frankie Grande
  5. Danielle Reyes
  6. Josh Martinez
  7. Britney Haynes
  8. Taylor Hale
  9. Cameron Hardin

Santa’s Helpers (hosts, but not the host):

  • Tiffany Mitchell
  • Derek Xiao
  • Jordan Lloyd

Nine players were promised and that turned out to be true as the countdown began with Big Brother 25’s Cameron Hardin. Cameron was the AFP winner of last season and when Julie promised someone from this year would be returning it seemed obvious, right?

Well following that track we’ve got another AFP in the mix. Taylor Hale, winner of BB25 and also that season’s crowned Fav Player, comes in as #8 on the countdown. Taylor will be joining Cameron in the battle for some backyard Big Brother bucks.

No surprises here to find Britney Haynes on our list. Britney is amazing and definitely falls under the “Legends” category and a recognizable face and name to the franchise. Fan fav for sure and a welcomed addition to the mini-series this month.

He beat out Paul along with the pots & pans. It’s Josh Martinez, winner of BB19, returning to the Big Brother House for more competitions. Wouldn’t call him a fan fav, but he definitely checks to the box of being a former BB champion.

Who else will be competing for Santa’s bag of cash and prizes? We’ll find out more on Thursday so stick with us for those updates and reveals! In the meantime, don’t miss the new Reindeer Games House reveal with some heavy Christmas and Santa theming throughout. Everything about the house has been updated to match the series’ setting including adding Santa’s Office and Mrs Claus’s Bakery. It’s a fun theme and they definitely did NOT hold back on the decor.
