Admit it…you watch Big Brother. The words “head of household” and “power of veto” are part of your vernacular. And, like every summer, you anxiously await for its return, which for this upcoming 24th edition is tomorrow – Wednesday, July 6 at 8 p.m. ET. So, let me alleviate your curiosity and reveal the cast of fame seekers in search of the now $750,000 grand prize.
While concept may sound simple — a group of people live together in a house with their every move being recorded by an array of cameras and microphones in a competition to be the sole remaining houseguest — never expect the expected on Big Brother. This summer, the theme is “the BB Fest,” where you will see something different each week (think a music fest, a comedy fest, a renaissance fest, and the Zing fest, for example). Zing, of course, refers to “Zingbot,” the comical robot who pops in midway through each edition to make comical cracks about the remaining contestants.
Julie Chen-Moonves (aka :Chenbot”) returns as host, and the roster of competitors are as follows:
