In addition, the show will feature for the first time five "Super Fans" -- including identical twins Brittany and Erica Taltos -- who will compete as one participant.

Season 2 winner Stagliano cashed in on his prize money but struck out at love, so he'll be moving into the mansion to put everything on the line for another chance.
