The 16 new Big Brother houseguests who will be competing for the $500,000 grand prize during the reality competition series’ most “twisted” season have been revealed. Big Brother, once again hosted by Julie Chen, will kick off season 16 with a two-night premiere on June 25 and June 26, 2014. During the two night premiere, Chen will be unveiling this season’s big twists including new rules surrounding the ‘Head of Household.’

Details on Season 16:

In the first twist, two Houseguests will win the coveted role of “Head of Household” (HOH) each week, and will have the responsibility of nominating two fellow Houseguests for eviction; however, for the first time on the series, earning HOH will not guarantee one’s safety in the game for the week.

With the second twist, fans will have a unique opportunity to significantly influence the game from home with a new interactive element called “Team America.” Today, CBS Interactive launched the site cbs.com/bbteamamerica, asking viewers to vote on which of the new Houseguests they would like to form an alliance with.

In addition, an entirely new high-stakes competition will be introduced, “Battle of the Block,” which will dramatically shift the power in the house each week.
