'Big Brother 15' Announces 16 Houseguests
CBS has officially announced the 16 contestants that will be competing in the forthcoming season of "Big Brother". Including people from a wide range of professional background, the 15th cycle features a relatively much younger cast compared to previous installments with the majority of the houseguests in their 20s.
The 16 houseguests will be competing for the $500,000 prize, but host Julie Chen has teased that more people could join the game. The show recently also announced two twists: three houseguests, instead of the usual two, will be nominated for eviction, and an MVP will be chosen based on viewers' vote each week.
Voting for the first MVP has opened on the show's official website following the cast announcement. Details about what super powers given to the MVP will be explained later when the 15th edition of the reality series premieres June 26 on CBS.
