CBS has already announced the 16 contestants who will be vying for $500,000 this summer in the Big Brother house. Now, ahead of the first installment in the season’s two-night premiere, EW can reveal the first group photo of the season 19 cast.
The reality stalwart is back on network airwaves beginning Wednesday night following its digital-only Big Brother: Over the Top spin-off on CBS All Access. (CBS All Access subscribers were also given a season 19 sneak preview last week with a live-stream of contestant interviews.)
Before all the drama gets started (and with professions like Cosplay Artist and Rodeo Clown, there is bound to be plenty), take a look at these exclusive behind-the-scenes shots from the set. It looks like the cast is about to get wet and wild — which is pretty much par for the course with Big Brother).
The show returns to CBS at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday; the second part of the two-night premiere airs Thursday.
Check out the images below for a behind-the-scenes first look before tuning in to see who is the first to be voted out of the house.
