Big Brother
has revealed its new cast!

CBS announced 12 houseguests who will compete this summer for the reality staple's 18th season, and two of them have ties to past finalists.

The older brother of Big Brother 16 favorite and runner-up Cody Calafiore, Paulie, will follow in his younger sibling's footsteps, along with Tiffany Rousso, sister to Big Brother 17's Vanessa.

Paulie and Tiffany will have a long road ahead if they hope to win the coveted $500,000 grand prize. The houseguests will spend a record 99 days inside the Big Brother house, one day longer than last year's marathon 98-day run. It's only a matter of time before a few blow-ups, verbal fisticuffs and behind-the-scenes scheming spice up the competition!

The season's twists will be announced during the two-night Big Brother premiere, which will take place on Wednesday, June 22 (8-10 p.m. ET/PT) and Thursday, June 23 (9-10 p.m. ET/PT), with longtime hostJulie Chen back at the helm.
