Corey Brooks, a 25-year-old baseball coach from Dallas, is optimistic about finding love while competing on the show, but like Victor, his eye is on the prize.
“If it hurts my game, you can forget it,” Corey said, but added, “It’s definitely a possibility.”
Math student Bronte D’Acquisto isn’t banking on a showmance. As the 26-year-old San Diego native tells it, being romantically involved puts a big target on you.
“I’m a numbers girl. I look at the statistics and a lot of showmances just make you an easy target,” Bronte said. “They make you emotional. So my goal is to fuel other showmances. I’ll be like, ‘Girl, did you see the way that guy looked at you?’”
But it’s not all about showmances for the new Big Brother houseguests: Two of them are siblings of past fan favorites!
Tiffany Rousso, the 32-year-old sister of last season's master manipulator Vanessa, is following in her sibling’s footsteps and getting in on the competition. But, it’ll be a near impossible task to keep her identity a secret.
“I know I sound a lot like her. A lot of people have told me that and I can hear it myself,” Tiffany said. “So, if by chance it comes out, I’m going to own up to it.”
Meanwhile, Cody Calafiore’s older brother, Paulie, is ready to win the $500,000 grand prize and shared the advice he received from the Big Brother 16 runner-up.
“He told me to dial back, personality-wise, for the first couple of weeks,” Paulie said. “Don’t be the crazy personality the first couple weeks, otherwise you’re going home.”
Big Brother premieres Wednesday, June 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CBS.
