There is a 33-year-old minister, a 27-year-old makeup artist and a DJ, a 26-year-old hunting guide, young college graduates and pop diva Ariana Grande's brother.
2. New House- One of the most exciting part of "Big Brother" is the residence where the players reside. The house changes every year and is designed lavishly based on a theme. As described by host Julie Chen, this year's "Big Brother" house is an "urban tree house" backed with all the facilities. Rooms of the house are divided according to the four natural elements: water, wind, fire and earth. This season the house has 76 high definition cameras, which means 11 more than the last year and more than Superbowl and Oscars. There is a beehive room and a butcher block island in the kitchen. Also, the head of Household gets his/her own private suite which has a bed in the shape of a cozy bird nest. Take a tour of the house by viewing the video posted below.
3. New Rules and Twists: "Big Brother" (BB) Season 16 (2014) will introduce some interesting twists as revealed by Julie Chen on Wednesday episode of "The Talk." Show's long-time host revealed that fans will play a major role in the "game's outcome" (via TV Guide.) Also, Season 16 will have two houseguests as "Head of Household" each week. Even though these HoH will get the privilege of nominating two others for eviction, the HoHs will not be "automatically safe for the week."
Another new twist introduces "Team America." This is an "interactive element" that will let viewers be a part of the show. More details about this new twist will be revealed during the "Big Brother" Season 16 (2014) premiere (Episode 1).
Furthermore, there is something called "Battle of the Block." The element is said to accentuate the level of competition amongst the players by dramatically shifting the powers. As they say it "Expect the unexpected."
