Just when you thought you’d be getting a break from tearful diary room confessions and cheesy showmances, a brand-new set of houseguests are entering the Big Brother house.

Though Nicole Franzel has barely had a week to soak in her time as reigning Big Brother champ, CBS announced Monday the 12 new houseguests that will be entering the house on Sept. 28 and competing for the $250,000 prize on Big Brother: Over the Top, the new digital edition of the beloved reality show.

The houseguests set to endure the twists and turns along the way to the top prize (because, you know, expect the unexpected) include:

Monte Massongill, 25, an engineer associate from Olive Branch, Miss.

Whitney Hogg, 21, a medical assistant from Whitesburg, Ky.

Shelby Stockton, 24, a recent law school graduate from Simi Valley, Calif.

The show premieres Wednesday, Sept. 28, and will stream 24/7 on CBS All Access. In addition to the 12 houseguests announced Monday, fans can also vote in one of two former houseguests — either season 18’s Jozea Flores or season 17’s Jason Roy. Voting ends Tuesday, Sept. 27.
