Big Brother 14 Contestants And A Twist Involving Returning Houseguests

Yesterday we shared some photos and video, which gave us a look at the contestants and house design for the upcoming fourteenth season of Big Brother. Today, not only do we have some additional information and photos of the Season 14 houseguests, but we also have news on this season's twist, which involves four contestants from previous seasons.

It's becoming sort of a recurring theme to bring previous houseguests back for a second chance at the game on Big Brother. Just last season, Rachel Reilly took the grand prize during her second season on Big Brother. But from what CBS has announced regarding Season 14, the returning houseguests may have their own game to play this time around:

In a series first, four of the most successful players to ever enter the BIG BROTHER house, will return to play their own game and for their own separate prize. The identities of the four returning players and details surrounding their mission inside the house will be revealed during the season premiere.

Who are the four "most successful players"? Do they mean most successful post-Big Brother? Or most successful within the game? It's certainly an interesting twist, regardless. Not only are we left to speculate who will be coming back into the house, but also what "their own game" and "their mission" entail.

As for the new contestants, here's the information CBS released on the twelve newcomers to the game. Big Brother Season 14 premieres Thursday, July 12 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS.
