Big Brother Reveals 'Double Trouble' Twist - Plus Check Out the New House!

Big Brother‘s 13th cycle — dubbed “Double Trouble” — will feature eight brand-new houseguests, the return of “some of the most notorious duos” from seasons past, and a very colorful house. (Get your sunglasses on….)

Joe Rogan Returns as Fear Factor Host

The “duos” won’t be revealed until the CBS summertime staple’s July 7 premiere, but because we spy 14 spots on the “memory wall” — and because we took math — expect three pairs of familiar faces to pop up at the Venice Beach loft-inspired digs. Per CBS, these top-secret encores “will immediately impact the way the game will be played.” You can vote on who you think is coming back at

The newbies, meanwhile, include (clockwise from top left) Cassi, 26, an Olivia Wilde-esque model based out of Nashville; Dominic, 25, a college student (post-grad, we hope); Kalia, 30, a writer from Los Angeles; Adam, 39, a music inventory manager from Hoboken, N.J.; Shelly, 41, an “outdoors industry exec” from Louisiana; Lawon, 39, a legal somethingoranother; Porsche, 23, a Miami Beach “VIP cocktail waitress”; and Keith, 32, an HR exec from Illinois.

About the house: Per CBS, it boasts “an urban design that brings the outside décor in and the inside décor out.” Okayyyy. It also features a Frank Gehry-inspired bedroom, classic surfboards mounted on the walls (handy!), a Tarot Card Parlour and something called a “Popsicle Room.” (Maybe Porsche can explain that one?)

    Is there seriously a girl named Porsche!

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Hmm, she’s too young to have been born during the year “Risky Business” was released….

  2. Sivat says:

    Any more details on what this “Double Trouble” twist is? It can’t just be that three pairs are coming back.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Only that they are “some of the most notorious duos” from BB history, and their arrival “will immediately impact the way the game will be played.”

      • Stacie says:

        Not like BB is overselling this one after last year’s disastrous “Saboteur” twist. “Most notorious duos”, come on now. We’ve seen on Survivor that mixing old cast with new cast doesn’t work. Either have an entirely new cast or an All-Star cast. I would have preferred an All-Star cast, I still consider the 1st all star season 5 or 6 years ago the best season of the show.

        • John says:

          I agree with you 100%. Let’s just have a new cast this year and all stars next year, without Brendon/Rachel, Hayden/Enzo, and Jesse/Natalie. Seriously?

  3. Jusitn says:

    If jesse gets back in that house, I will never watch this show again.

    • Lisa says:

      I agree Justin!!!! 2 times if him was 2 times too many!!!

    • John says:

      And the fact that he’ll come in with NATALIE!!! What the hell is wrong with Big Brother???

    • OSCAR says:


    • Karadise says:

      I completely agree with Jusitn, I cannot stomach another season with Jesse/Natalie in it. NO NO NO

      • BBFAN1028 says:

        I agree Jessie is probably the most annoying person ever to enter the Big Brother house, right up there with Rachel! Also, bringing back former players with a new cast is such a predictable move. Survivor sucked this year because it was all a set up to allow Boston Slob to finally win after playing 3 X before. I think CBS needs to come up with a show called. CBS execs let’s be a bit more creative and unpredictable…

        • sadtroll says:

          Jesse wasn’t interesting enough to be annoying.

          “I’m not just muscles. I’m also strategical.” – lift weights, repeat

    • Agie says:

      Jesse, i liked Jesse! Rachel would bound to annoy the house and myself! but i guess its all about good ratings!

  4. jb says:

    Jeff/Jordan, EvelDick/Dani, DrWill/Boogie, Jessie/Gnatalie, Brendon/Rachel, Hayden/Enzo…guess which 3 duos are in the lead? Poor Jessie…he only has 2% lol. And I agree, Justin, if he goes back in I will NOT watch until he is DUN.

    • bamalam says:

      I hate absolutely all of them…seriously…

    • BBFAN1028 says:

      I actually never watched the season finale when Evil Douche won cause I hated him so much. Out of those 6 couples its about who I hate the least. Dr.Will is cool but Boogie is a creep, Jeff and Jordan ugh, Hayden and Enzo, Hayden already won, Brendon and Rachel?? 2 weirdos so much in love, he cried on a youtube video after sending out pics of his johnson. Jesse??? AGAIN?? C’mon CBS can you give some real people a chance at the game… Oh wait that’s right it’s all a set up and the game is completely fixed like Survivor. Sorry I forgot the name Reality show actually means set up BS..

  5. Rebecca Parker says:

    CBS lists six possible returning duos:

    Brendon & Rachel
    Dr. Will & Boogie
    Jessie & Natalie
    Evil Dick & Danielle
    Jeff & Jordan
    Enzo & Hayden

    There are rumors abounding about which three are going back in.

    For the record, I will have serious issues if Evil Dick is back after what he did and said to Jen back in his season. I cannot take another season of him, I really can’t.

    • Rock Golf says:

      Dr Will & Boogie are entertainment gold! Who can forget their interviews in the green room during All-Star season?
      “Did you get immunity?”
      “No, all I got was a big screen TV.”
      “How about you?
      “No, all I got was a South Pacific Vacation”
      [several seconds of the two of them looking glum and depressed, staring at the floor in front of them]
      [HYSTERICAL MANIACAL LAUGHTER from both of them}

    • Sivat says:

      I would be fine with all of them EXCEPT Jessie and Natalie. I honestly couldn’t stomach another season with those losers. Ugh!

    • forrest says:

      no No NO! It’s way too soon to put up with Brendon and Rachael again. Jeff & Jordan are blah. Jessie and anybody is a b a d combo. oh wait, its probably just Jessie and his favorite mirror….

  6. Andy says:

    The donatos will probably come back.

  7. OSCAR says:


  8. JD says:

    based on the pictures of the options on, i think it’s pretty obvious that Jesse and Natalie and Rachel and Brendan will absolutely be coing back. CBS LOVES to put people in there that America hates. and the only way to stop them from doing it is to not watch the show as a result of it. that being said, if the third couple is Hayden and Enzo, i’m definitely not watching this season, with 4 people i already hate in there and no redeemers. but if even one of the dick/danielle, jordan/jeff, or will/mike teams goes in, i’ll still watch. i love them all. most likely out of those three is probably jeff and jordan i’d think.

  9. oscar says:

    I heard they were parolling Richard Hatch to finish his time on BB13.

  10. Ruth says:

    Will & Boogie again would be some SERIOUSLY funny TV. I’m sorry – I know they are totally douchers but they really do liven up the show anytime they’re on. What about Janelle and ANYBODY!!!!!! Would LOVE to see her again…I have to say that if Jesse & Natalie are picked I will vomit (just from seeing their disgusting faces and hearing their whiny voices) and then probably not be able to watch this season. Unfortunately the producers will probably pick the pairs that get the least amount of votes just to be weinies.

  11. Dave says:


    Been close to pulling the plug on BB and this “twist” is going to do it. Won’t even bother watching the first episode this season. Couldn’t care less if its Jeff/Jordan or Gnat and the mental midget …… They all had their 15 minutes. Big Brother needs to introduce new fame seekers every season, otherwise the show just does not work. Either make it all stars or all new. Mixing it up is just a complete FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL.

  12. Taylor says:

    Please oh please let there be a Donato vs. Brenchel brawl. That would be amazing.
    I wish they would’ve factored in couples from seasons past like Cowboy/Nakomis or Adria/Natalie. Heck, I’d even take Dan/Memphis over some of them.

  13. Sherknd says:

    I myself will watch no matter who they bring back. Every season has fan favorites and non-favorites. Isnt that the whole idea?

  14. Sarah says:

    “Dominic, 25, a college student (post-grad, we hope)”
    This disgusts me. Some people have personal issues that force them to wait to go to school, or causes them to take more than 4 years to graduate. Grow up and show some sensitivity. You don’t know his life story. But I know I am done reading articles by you.

  15. Evan Meadow says:

    Current voting results have Jeff and Jordan running away with over half of the overall votes so you know they’re going in.

    2nd place has Chilltown ahead by 1% over The Donatos (and for the record, I want the Donatos in) with Brenchel just behind them both. (who I also want in just to hear Rach scream “I AM VEGAS!” a couple of times not to mention having Brendan have to explain his online affair screwup for those who aren’t aware of it to a nationwide audience would be GOLD!)

    Following them are Enzo/Hayden and Jessie/The Shrew are last with only 1% voted in their favor.

    Gnatalie can still go suck it!

  16. Mandy says:

    I LOVE TV Line, but what’s with this? “Dominic, 25, a college student (post-grad, we hope)” Is there something wrong with going to school at 25?

    Anyway, I’m so excited for BB. I would automatically guess Jeff and Jordan would come back since they are fan favourites, but I can’t imagine either of them agreeing to do it. No doubt Rachel and Brendon will be back.

    • postsalot says:

      I’m with ya Mandy. Not everyone has a mommy & daddy ready to fork over thousands of dollars so they can graduate at 21.

      Matt – don’t be an edu-hater!

    • Kristina says:

      And who knows… maybe its grad school? Its still college you know! And I was 27 when I finished undergrad and 31 by the time I finished grad school. Stop being an idiot MATT!

  17. ncmacasl says:

    I am amazed that 5 of the 8 are over 30!!!! tired of all of these mindless 20-somethings being showcased for “eye-candy” – Would much rather have some seasoned folks there to be a challenge for the returning HGs.

  18. Evan Meadow says:

    Dr. Will has posted either on his site or FB page that he’s not going back to BB no matter if he wins the votes with Boogie. Says he’s too busy with his practice and family.

    And Boogie’s supposedly hosting a new show on VH-1 coming up soon so we don’t have to worry bout Chilltown this season. I say YAY!

  19. JD says:

    it has been all but confirmed on various other sites that the couples going back in are Jeff/Jordan, Rachel/Brendan, and Dick/Danielle. thank god Jesse isn’t involved. I can’t wait to see the Donatos take on Brenchel. that is going to be epic. and then hopefully Rachel will be out the first week and we won’t have to deal with her anymore.

  20. nicole says:

    I’m ok with the returning pairs…would have rather had will and boogie instead of brendan and rachel…but it would have been awesome if it could have been Janelle and Kaysar…in my opinion =)
