Before tonight’s premiere of Big Brother, EW has obtained an exclusive first look at the season 20 cast (below). Sixteen players — including a previous undercover cop, a lady pro sports player, a Las Vegas entertainer, and a pageant queen — will compete in the twelve-monthly summer game.
And good news for veteran followers: There won’t be any returning players becoming a member of the action this season. While the last three non-celebrity editions of BB (seasons 18, 19, and the CBS All Access model) featured returning players, executive producer Allison Grodner told EW Radio lately that she’ll leave previous players before.
“I can validate there will never be,” she informed EW Day Live. “It’s different. We always make an effort to mix it up and keep it fresh which season, as you’ve already seen, there are 16 completely new houseguests that will be playing this game.”
Season 20 of YOUR GOVERNMENT begins at 8 p.m. ET tonight on CBS.
