"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," CBS teased in a press release announcing the cast.
Big Brother executive producers Rich Meehan and Allison Grodner revealed to Entertainment Tonight how the houseguests will begin playing the game in teams and there will be another huge twist at the end of the premiere episode having to do with the theme of casino meets Big Brother Beach club.
For the first time inBig Brother history, the houseguests will apparently be presented with a double-or-nothing offer that may be too good to refuse.
The executive producers also shared howBig Brother's 23rd season will have the tagline, "Go big or go home."

Beginning on Sunday, July 11, the series will air on Sunday and Wednesday nights from 8-9PM ET/PT as well as on Thursday nights.
