Big Brother 17 cast revealed, but only 14?

Eight days ahead of the new Big Brother USA season on CBS, ETonline has revealed the #BB17 cast ... but there are only 14 house guests, down from the usual 16! Does this in some way represent upcoming twists for this season? Stay tuned, obviously.

I think it would be awesome if CBS steals a trick from Big Brother Australia (and probably other international versions, but #BBAU is the one I've watched lately) and brings in new house guests to replace early (or even mid-season) evictees. (Big Brother Australia's name for replacements is "intruders.") That would be a worthwhile twist. (Has CBS done this in earlier seasons? Since I started with #BB15, I'm still the Newbie Desk writer around here.)

A first update to the Big Brother Gossip Ticker graphic (in the right sidebar) will be posted later today with the new cast's names and photos.

  1. Please, please let this not be the return of Zankie or the Riley Sisters. . . I have a nice TV and would hate to hate to throw it out the window. LOL. Welcome back, btw!

  2. Agree with you 100 percent K Murphy! No returning players!
