Big Brother has gotten itself a whole new cast for its ninth season, and it's a record-breaking cast in a few aspects. CBS has released the new contestants and these 16 "houseguests" are the most ever under one roof for the show, and, it's the first time in the show's history that every houseguest is single.
When this group of 16 singles enters the house, they will be told they are being matched up with their "soul mate," a stranger who may prove to be their true love or their worst nightmare. Whether there is a love connection or not, once paired up, the Houseguests' life in the game depends on their partner. They must strategize, plot and scheme together as a couple for a chance at the prize. These "lovebirds" will live together as a couple meaning they will sleep in the same bed, hold Head of Household as a couple, be nominated for eviction as a pair, and if the time comes, say their goodbyes together upon eviction.
The new season will premiere on Tuesday, February 12 at 9 PM ET. The show will air three times a week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays, with the Wednesday and Sunday shows airing at 8 PM ET. The weekly evictions will air live, and the first eviction show is set for Wednesday, February 20. Check out a video of the new houseguests below.
