PHOTOS – Meet the Big Brother 13 Cast! CBS Announces “Double Trouble” Twist!

CBS Big Brother Cassi, Lawon, and Porsche

Ready or not, the new season of Big Brother is set to premiere next week on July 7th!

And today, CBS announced the names of the cast members, albeit only 8 of the cast members. The reason? Well it all has to do with this season’s twist.

The 13th season of Big Brother is being dubbed “Double Trouble” and will feature the return of some of the series’ most dynamic twosomes, playing alongside the eight brand-new Houseguests. It seems the houseguests will play as teams of two.

However, the identities of the returning veterans won’t be released until next Thursday’s premiere. CBS’s website however gives us a hint as to who might be returning when it asks fans to vote on who they think should return. The options? Brendon & Rachel, Dr. Will & Mike “Boogie,” Jessie & Natalie (Nooooooo!), Evil Dick & Daniele, Jeff & Jordan, and Hayden & Enzo.

Please CBS, no more Jessie and Natalie! So basically this season will be some all-stars mixed in with some new cast members. Oddly enough, the last and only all-star season was season 7. So is this CBS’s way of bringing back the all star game? Or will next season (season 14) bring back an entire all-star cast? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, photos and bios of the new 8 cast members are below! You can also sign up below for your Big Brother Live Feeds!
