Big Brother Season 24 Cast Revealed: Meet the 16 New Houseguests

Big Brother champion Xavier Prather is about to be dethroned, and it’s time to meet the houseguests who are coming for his crown.

One day ahead of Big Brother‘s return for Season 24, CBS has unveiled this summer’s full cast, consisting of 16 houseguests that you can meet in the list below.

This season’s roster skews ever-so-slightly older than previous years, with a median age of 30. Interior designer Paloma Aguilar will be the season’s youngest houseguest at just 22 years old, while bus operator Terrance Higgins is the oldest competitor at 47 years old.

Other Season 24 houseguests include hypnotherapist Brittany Hoopes, thrift store owner Matt “Turner” Turner, Las Vegas performer Daniel Durston and assistant football coach Joe “Pooch” Pucciarelli. (But who will be the first to lie about his or her real occupation, hm?)

UPDATE: Chemical processing engineer Marvin Achi has been removed from the Season 24 cast and replaced by lawyer Joseph Abdin; the change is reflected below.

Following its season premiere on Wednesday (8/7c, 90 minutes), Big Brother will settle into its usual three-times-a-week schedule, with episodes airing Sundays at 8 pm, Wednesdays at 8 pm and Thursdays at 9 pm (when houseguests will be evicted live). It will be followed on Wednesdays by new episodes of The Challenge: USA — the latest spinoff of MTV’s long-running competition series — which counts Big Brother alumni Prather, Alyssa Lopez, David Alexander, Derek Xiao, Enzo Palumbo, Kyland Young, Tiffany Mitchell, Azah Awasum and Angela Rummans among its Season 1 contestants.
