The 16th season of Big Brother U.S. will air on CBS in the summer of 2014. Once again, a group of strangers will be locked in a house as they battle for power and avoid being evicted by their housemates. The last one standing will win a $500,000 grand prize. The new season will premiere on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 and air every Sunday, Wednesday, and live eviction episodes on Thursdays through September. For the first time ever, Big Brother will be broadcast in high definition.
In this season’s twist, two houseguests will become Head of Household every week and they will both nominate two people for eviction. However, winning HOH will not automatically make someone safe this season. Instead, a new competition called the “Battle of the Block” will dramatically alter the state of power in the house. In addition to this primary twist, a new interactive feature called “Team America” will allegedly give the viewing public more power than they’ve ever had before.
The 16 brand new houseguests for Big Brother 16 are:
- Amber Borzotra, a 26-year-old esthetician from North Hollywood
