Big Brother
is now old enough to drink! The competition is back for its 21st season, as is host Julie Chen Moonves, who will break down all the action. And with some 100 cameras filming the Houseguests 24 hours a day, there’s definitely a lot of that. Among the 16 contestants vying for a $500,000 prize while living together under around-the-clock surveillance are a therapist, a petroleum engineer, a Broadway performer, and a wine safari guide. Prepare for pandemonium and meet the new Houseguests here!
