Having a microbiologist — someone who examines organisms under a microscope all day — certainly feels appropriate for a show like Big Brother, doesn’t it?

The cast members are:

  • Alex Ow, 28, eco-friendly marketing rep
  • Cameron Heard, 24, microbiologist
  • Christmas Abbott, 33, fitness superstar
  • Cody Nickson, 32, construction sales rep
  • Dominique Cooper, 30, government engineer
  • Elena Davies, 26, radio personality
  • Jason Dent, 37, rodeo clown
  • Jessica Graf, 26, VIP concierge
  • Jillian Parker, 24, timeshare sales rep
  • Josh Martinez, 23, haircare sales
  • Kevin Schlehuber, 55, stay-at-home dad
  • Mark Jansen, 26, personal trainer
  • Matthew Clines, 33, renovation consultant
  • Megan Lowder, 28, dog walker
  • Ramses Soto, 21, cosplay artist
  • Raven Walton, 23, dance teacher

This is the first entirely new set of cast members in years for the hit show. News of the cast leaked early online, possibly as a publicity stunt by CBS. You can now watch videos featuring all 16 contestants on CBS All-Access.

The long-running reality program, hosted by Julie Chen, features a group of houseguests living together while HD cameras and microphones track their every move. Each week, one person gets voted out of the house, until only one is left — the winner of $500,000.

Big Brother premieres next week on Wednesday, June 28 at 8 p.m. ET.
