'Big Brother's fifteenth-season houseguests announced by CBS
By Reality TV World staff, 06/21/2013
CBS has revealed the identities of the houseguests who will be competing on Big Brother's fifteenth season when the new edition premieres next week.
Big Brother's fifteen season will feature sixteen houseguests when it premieres Wednesday, June 26 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS. Like prior Big Brother seasons, the fifteenth season will award a $500,000 cash prize to the competition's winner.
Earlier this week, CBS announced Big Brother's fifteenth season will feature two new twists that will impact the houseguests' strategic game, as three houseguests -- not two, as in prior seasons -- will be nominated for eviction each week, and the season will also allow viewers to vote for a weekly "Big Brother MVP" houseguest who will have still-undisclosed powers in the competition.
The process in which the three houseguests will be nominated each week and the powers the MVP will have over the house will both be revealed during next week's premiere episode. Voting for the season's first "Big Brother MVP" is now available via cbs.com.
The sixteen houseguests who will be competing on Big Brother's fifteenth season are:
- Kaitlin Barnaby, a 23-year-old bartender from Vadnais Heights, MN who currently resides in Minneapolis, MN
- McCrae Olson, a 23-year-old pizza delivery person from Zimmerman, MN who currently resides in Oak Grove, MN
