Big Brother

Would you allow yourself to be locked in a house with 15 other strangers for close to three months with cameras broadcasting your every single move to an entire country? Of course not! That's crazy! Who would do such a thing? Well, we will tell you and show you exactly who would do such a thing, because the Big Brother season 24 cast bios and photos are finally here.

In just over 24 hours, 16 new guinea pigs contestants will subject themselves to such a fate when they walk inside the Big Brother house for the 90-minute live premiere on July 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. Host Julie Chen Moonves has already warned us of new challenges and a new twist that awaits them, as well as a big game-changer on the first eviction night. But now it is time to meet the folks that will be battling for the $750,000 prize.

A hypnotherapist, a chemical processing engineer, a Vegas performer, and someone named Matt "Turner" Turner are among the motley crew that will be inhabiting a network studio built to look like a house that is styled to look like a Palm Springs "BB Motel" this summer. (That is all part of this season's "BB Fest.")

Who will get stuck in a unitard? Who will get Zinged (Zung?) hardest by the Zingbot? And, most importantly of all, will a dominant alliance (à la the Cookout and the Committee) once again steamroll through the house, or we will get some actual back-and-forth competition?  Check out the bios and photos for the new cast below and make your early winner pick for Big Brother season 24. (NOTE: After the cast was announced, Marvin Achi was replaced by Joseph Abdin.)
