This season’s cast includes a Flight Attendant, Make-Up Artist, Start-up Founder, Farmer, Kindergarten Teacher, Forensic Scientist and an Attorney, among others. This all-new group is in for a high-stakes summer full of Big Risks and Big Rewards, where one wrong gamble could cost them everything. By the end of the premiere episode, for the first time in Big Brother history, the Houseguests will be presented with a double-or-nothing offer that may be too good to refuse.

The show will also be available to stream live and on demand with the CBS app or Paramount+, where fans will also be able to watch the 24/7 live feed and find exclusive content throughout the season.
