Big Brother 18: Frankie Grande Disciple, Vanessa's Sister Among Cast Poised for a Record 99-Day House Stay

The cast thus far announced for CBS’ Big Brother 18 includes a former NFL cheerleader, two siblings of past Houseguests and a Frankie Grande superfan, with the ages ranging from 23 to (a token) 50. And every one of ’em should be prepared to get comfy, seeing as this cycle will involve a record 99-day stay in the house.

The Eye network’s summertime staple returns with a two-night premiere — airing Wednesday, June 22 at 8/7c, then Thursday, June 23 at 8. Its Sunday broadcasts debut June 26 at 8 pm, and the first live eviction is scheduled for Thursday, June 30 at 9 pm.

This season’s new twists will be announced during the two-night premiere event.

The live feed this year will be available via the CBS All Access service (as part of the $5.99/month subscription fee).

Review the Houseguests and their vitals in the slideshow below.

    I think Tiffany Rousso is probably related to Vanessa Rousso of last season. Same last name and very similar faces, it doesn’t seem like a coincidence to me. Maybe all these people are related to former contestants?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      I’m going with no; different hometowns (Vanessa was from Las Vegas), and there’s nothing in Tiffany’s bio (she cites Janelle as her BB inspiration), whereas Paulie’s denoted the connection. But I could be wrong!

      UPDATE: It appears I am wrong. Checking with CBS on the super-secret family tie….

      • Gabe says:

        “Rousso has two younger sisters: Tiffany, a psychology master’s student at Florida Atlantic University and Leticia, a pre-med student at University of Florida.[16]”

        That’s from Vanessa’s wikipedia page. Still could be a coincidence, but the fact that BB18’s Tiffany Rousso has Florida listed as her hometown after Vanessa’s sister went to college there has my conspiracy-theory-brain working overtime.

    I thought this information was embargoed until 4:00 EST!! Thanks for posting early!

    I was wondering when this would come out. Franke Grande?!?! Ugh CBS, let it go…let it go!!!

  4. jph_gsg says:

    Only 12 houseguests for 99 days? I bet we can expect 12 more to return.

  5. Billy says:

    I find it weird that they are promoting that Cody’s brother is in the house while Vanessa’s sister is in the house and they aren’t saying anything about it.

  6. Judy says:

    So we’re getting at least 4 returning vets?

  7. Diane Clercx says:

    Could we just have a house of new normal people that we can relate to as what was first introduced to us in the first show, this is so boring to watch relatives. i just want a new house full of normal people that aren’t related to past members please!
