Meet the Outrageous New Cast of 'Big Brother,' Season 13


The season thirteen premiere of "Big Brother" is almost upon us, which of course means a brand new cast of spirited, bikini-ready contestants!

Who will be your favorite this season? Will it be outspoken Kalia, sweetie pie Cassi, or the ever-sassy Lawon?

For those not in the know by now, "Big Brother" rounds up a group of people to live together 24/7, with more than 50 cameras and microphones outfitted throughout the house to capture every waking moment. Each week the house guests compete in various competitions and one person is voted out of the house until the last person standing receives the grand prize of $500,000.

This season's house has a Venice, CA theme -- since the show is filmed in Los Angeles -- complete with surfboards, bikes, barbecues, graffiti, a weightlifting station and even a tarot card reader! Of course, the back yard has a pool and a hot tub – and there's a colorful bedroom inspired by Katy Perry, and one of brushed steel inspired by architect Frank Gehry.

Make sure to catch the season premiere of "Big Brother" on CBS beginning Thursday, July 7.
