Big Brother 15 Cast Features a Playboy Model, a Railroad Conductor and Rachel Reilly's Sis

It’s that time of the year, Big Brother fans: The new houseguests are moving in.

CBS has unveiled the 16 men and women living in the house during the unscripted series’ 15th cycle.

Among this year’s newbies (with appearances and occupations that promise to bring plenty of watercooler moments): railroad conductor Spencer, pizza-delivery boy McCrae, pageant coordinator (and former Playboy pin-up girl) GinaMarie, and Elissa – the sister of Big Brother’s Season 13 champ, Rachel Reilly. (Surely you haven’t forgotten about “Brenchel” just yet?)

It doesn’t take long to notice this cast is a young one. The oldest houseguest is 37 years old; the youngest clocks in at 22.

Click through the gallery below to meet the newbies, who’ll be subject to the game’s recently announced new twists and who’ll make their debut when BB15 debuts on Wednesday, June 26 at 8/7c. Then hit the comments: Based on the most superficial of evidence, which houseguests are you already rooting for (or rooting against)?

  • I love this show very addicting. Although everyone hated Rachell I liked her and was so glad she won the second time she played. I will definitely be watching this season and hope Rachell’s sister has some of her attitude because that will be good for television.

  • This show always has the least diverse cast ever. I mean I understand it being the summer and always casting the hot bods, but jeez not a single person over 40 and always two or three token minorities.

    • I’ve always thought the same thing… Its so annoying. A more diverse cast would make it more interesting. The very few minorities they do have always get voted out quick too. Also, why are all the women pretty but there’s never any cute guys? (IMO)

      • Actually, least diverse cast honors belongs to ABC’s dumb dating game that won’t go away.

      • I agree about the cute guys. They used to have some superhot guys on this show – but I can’t remember the last time they had one on this show…

      • Holy superficial attitude (about the lack of “cute guys”)!

    • I’m just glad that they’re not all from NY/CA. Lots from the south this year.

  • So happy about the new cast! I don’t mind having all star seasons but I don’t like when they mix veterans and newbies.

  • On first impressions, I’m liking Spencer, Amanda, and Nick.
    No way is Rachel’s sister Elissa only 27 years old – in that picture, she looks like one of the Real Housewives of Sin City…

    • Oh, and I might already be in love with Candice. Time will tell…

  • I’m officially embarrassed that Rachel’s sister lives in my state and only an hour away. Can’t believe we have to be subjected to more of CBS’s recycling of families. This is as bad as the Hantz’s on Survivor. Not liking that they are all under 30 save for a couple. There will be a lot of hooking up though since they are all so pretty.

  • Its funny that Rachel and her sister have the same krazy eyes!
    Not that they have the same eyes, but that they both look CRAZY!

    • Yeah and they both have that CREEPY laugh, what is up with that

  • The black dude is faking the entrie God thing….reall? Every black dude i’ve ever known has tried to play the God crap when you first meet them as well as played the Oh i’m all about children and progression BS. He’s just in it for the white women. I hope known of them like black dudes.

    • If you know anything about Hattiesburg MS and African Americans you will know they are known for their Christian beliefs. Regarding the children thing, he is a youth couselor. need I say any more. Sounds like you are the one with the problem with him being there, and why do it has be be about white women. At the time of casting he has no idea who is being picked white, black, Asian, men women, cat or dog.
