This summer's twist, "Double Trouble," will feature the return of some of the most dynamic "duos" in the history of BIG BROTHER. The return of these former Houseguests will immediately impact the way the game will be played this summer.

The identities of the returning "Duos" will be revealed during the premiere episode on July 7. Below are the eight NEW Houseguests who will spend the summer playing alongside the "Duos" in the new season of BIG BROTHER:

This season, the Houseguests will enjoy a Venice Beach loft-inspired house, featuring an urban design that brings the outside décor in and the inside décor out. Highlights of the BIG BROTHER house include a Frank Gehry-inspired bedroom, classic surfboards mounted on the walls and original artwork ranging from a custom sunglass display to a eye-catching wall of graffiti. The Tarot Card Parlour, indoor chess park and Popsicle Room top off the Venice Beach motif throughout the house.

Once again, several unlucky Houseguests will be banished to the "Have/Have Not Room" each week, where luxury and comfort are non-existent.

Following the premiere on Thursday, July 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), BIG BROTHER will be broadcast three nights weekly, beginning Sunday, July 10 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), Wednesday, July 13 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) and the LIVE eviction show, hosted by Julie Chen, beginning Thursday, July 14 (9:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT).

BIG BROTHER follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with more than 52 cameras and 95 microphones recording their every move 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining House Guest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

BIG BROTHER is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol U.S.A.
