The Big Brother 18 Cast Revealed!

CBS unveiled the new cast on Tuesday and among the 12 new houseguests are siblings of former players. Paulie Calafiore, brother of Big Brother 16′s Cody, and Tiffany Ruosso, sister of last season’s Vanessa, will be moving into the house. Expect the unexpected on Big Brother 18 — and some familiar names.

In non-nepotistic casting, the other new players include a clothing designer, a baseball coach, a traveling nurse, a makeup artist and Glenn, a dog groomer/former police detective. At 50, Glenn is the oldest houseguest since Big Brother 10‘s Renny (53) and Jerry (75).

As for this season’s new twists — yes, plural — you’ll have to wait for the two-night premiere on June 22 and 23, when Julie Chen will announce them. Will Battle of the Block refuse to die? One thing’s (probably) for sure: Expect some more houseguests (returnees?), since the show hasn’t had only 12 houseguests since Season 14.
